I was very disappointed in this Holiday Inn. First it was myself and a friend. Both ladies, we were not aware that the only double rooms were in the back with an outside entrance. The light in the bathroom was out but that was fixed very fast. We went to have dinner with friends and had not turned on the... More

Dear Kirk D, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our property and for choosing to stay with us. It is nice to know that after some initial issues with the bathroom light, this was soon addressed accordingly. I do want to apologize for the inconvenience caused by the room allocation and television remote availability. We... More

Daughter was returning to college (Lamar U is about 10 minutes away!) after leg surgery. The staff was so accommodating in changing the reservation to get us in a room on the first floor with hands-cap accessibility. The temp was perfect when we walked in- so many places leave the air off and it's hot when you arrive. They were... More

The general areas and meeting places of this hotel are average. The staff are friendly and accommodating. HI has spent some money in upgrading the standard of the hotel but stopped short in the rooms. The rooms are damp and have a smell of AC which has not been properly cleaned. The beds are uncomfortable and a also need of... More

My spouse and I attended a local function and hadn't stayed at Park Central in years. This location is always the go-to place for corporate out-of-town visitors. Rooms are immaculate. They have a very strict no-smoking policy for the no-smoking rooms which we loved! No over-perfumed room to mask smoke. It's so convenient for dinner, shopping, etc. Nice bar, but... More

It was not my first choice but ended out being a good one. My room was spacious and clean and looked out on a lovely pool. There's no complimentary evening drinks or breakfast, but the savings in price are worth it. There is a bar if you'd like a drink (although the smoke is quite thick) and you can take... More

We held our 40th class reunion at the Holiday Inn Park Central last summer. We experienced the courtesy and charm of JUDY Schoolfield, as our wonderful consultant. Everything was WONDERFUL! We had a need for a wheelchair at our reunion, which the hotel graciously supplied. Recently, my husband had a severe rheumatoid arthritis flare-up, and could not use his crutches.... More

Nice room, comfy bed and pillows, loud air conditioner, moldy smell. The breakfast was sparse but adequate, not the traditional Holiday Inn breakfast...no cinnamon rolls. It was raining so we did not feel like swimming but the pool area was pretty. Not sure if I would recommend this Holiday Inn, I left with mixed feelings, however, I am a real... More

Staff was nice enough, but my registration which had been pre-arranged, was messed up. First room had visible mold, damp carpet and musty smell. Second was better but still a little musty smelling. Breakfast was plentiful, several options but not hot except the morning that I arrived right when it opened. Room layout was nice. Bed and pillows above average.

I was at this hotel on business travel. It is clearly an older hotel, with good effort to keep it from seeming run down. The swimming pool courtyard was pleasant. The room was nice and spacious, but poorly laid out for business travel - I had to run my power cord to the bathroom, as the power at the desk... More
