Overall the hotel is very nice. However, one very important reason we stay at Holiday Inn Expresses is because of the breakfast convenience. This was the worst breakfast experience we have had at a Holiday Inn Express. No pancakes, had to wait for both sausages to be refilled, people waiting in long lines due to so many things being out... More

Newer or newly renovated. Apparently within the last 5 years. We had an executive room. Room looked nice and modern! Large walk-in shower. Breakfast is always a plus at an Express! The pool would be a large draw for kids. It is a soak pad/pool! There are two lanes for swimming, and the other half is shallow with different splash... More

Five of us between ages of 18-71 shared a double queen with a couch for 4 days. We had plenty of room, plugs near the mirror outside the bathroom very helpful, sink in kitchenette area, fridge and microwave. Good breakfast in the morning.

Nice overall Hotel in a good location and value for the buck but the indoor pool water was frigid, WAY too cold. I don't know if their pool heater was out of order or what the situation was but it was a huge disappointment.

We pulled in about 6:45pm and found a vacancy. They had a mangers Thank You Reception and they kept it open past the closing hour of 7pm for us. Nice limited buffet even with a Shrimp cocktail plus free bottled beer and wine. The room was everything we needed and a pleasant stay.

This location is very convenient to shopping, restaurants and highway access. There is a manager's happy hour with appetizers. The place is way too cold! Parking is easy but fills up fast. I didn't care for the breakfast--I went down the road to McDonalds.
