I had several options within the area (less $$ as well) but decided to stay here. Overall, not bad but the room did have a slight mildew smell. For one night its practical but not cheap. I think its over priced for the room quality. The unit was a decent size though. It did have a small fridge, microwave. A... More

I have been staying here for an army school and I would not want to stay anywhere else. Breakfast in the mornings are delicious and the room service leaves everything spotless.

I stayed at this hotel for a few days last week and I've never had such horrible service before. Once I got there I was met by a girl name Casey, Kacie (however you spell it) and she wasn't polite at all.

This Holiday Inn is very nice. A lot of Military stay at this location so it stays booked. The rooms are very nice, very clean. They have unique layouts if you get rooms with pull out sofas that are really nice.

I arrived during morning rush hour and it was insane. Luckily I had a server named Shadai, interesting name I must say. The service was amazing though. I would come to the holiday Inn just for breakfast for that kind of service again every day of the week.

Our server Ashley is great! Always really attentive to what we need. She always gives us service with a smile. As soon as she was hired, there was a dramatic upgrade in the service! The hotel is clean and really quiet. Very receptive to military.
