Spent one night at this Holiday Inn in May 2019. Nice hotel, friendly staff, clean comfortable room and bed. We were on the top floor so noise was minimal. We also always run the room fan to drown out any noise that does come from streets or people. Breakfast room was good sized, breakfast was good and well stocked. Others have listed the things on the breakfast buffet, so I won't repeat the list. There should be something here for everyone. This hotel met our needs and we would stay here again if we were in the area. There was a movie theater a mile or so away in a shopping center, so that might be of interest to some. Had a good experience here and would stay again.

Do not stay here if you are attracted by having the idea of a "waterpark" on site. The chlorination smell is overwhelming - even down the halls of the hotel. The bigger disappointment is the temperature of the water. It was unsafe and way too cold. Kids everywhere had lips turning blue and were shivering. The overall room of the pool was also too cold. Finally, the slide had huge lines and limited hours. The breakfast was nice and well appointed, especially the automatic pancake maker. The bathroom was nice and very modern. There is a large, frameless, glass shower (but no tub) in the bathroom. The room was modern and clean. Average size and accommodations. Overall I was disappointed because the pool was unusable to us.

The room was nice and clean and the pool was fun. Our biggest complaint was that they were out of everything. We wanted hot chocolate, they were out. We needed pool towels, they were out. We needed another blanket, they were out. We wanted orange juice with breakfast, they were out. There were other breakfast items that were out as well. They also stopped serving breakfast about 15 minutes before the time they were supposed to and stopped bringing out food about 30 minutes before breakfast was over so we got what was left over and weren't even finished with breakfast before they were cleaning up. The kids did like the poo but it is smaller than it appears in pictures. Great for an overnight visit. Close to a mall and restaurants.

My husband had an appointment in Salt Lake City on a Monday so we decided since we were going to make the drive out there, that we might as well make a weekend trip out of it. We originally booked our room for two night, but by the end of our stay we decided to stay one more night. Why? Because my three year old son absolutely loved the little water park! He actually ran around the little play area with some other young boys and had a blast. It was safe and clean, there are no lifeguards on duty (I think that is for the better so parents do not just drop their kids off and leave), they do provide simple yet effective life jackets. There is a really tall winding slide for the bigger kids and adults to ride down, and two other pools that offer 3' and 5' depths to swim around in. The rooms were nice and spacious, we were in a 2 Queen room. They provide breakfast up (until 10 am on some days), which was great because it was an hour ahead time change for us. They have really good egg white omelettes, bacon, sausage, pancakes, and DELICIOUS Cinnabon cinnamon rolls! That was the highlight of the buffet breakfast for me. The staff was very courteous and helpful when I inquired about our room charges upon checkout. I was just verifying that the had applied our military discount, which the had already done so. Also, their entrance has a weird off the street turn in, however their location could not be more perfect. The hotel is so close to a mall with a movie theater and bowling alley, endless restaurants to choose from and quick access to the freeway. I will definitely be coming back to this hotel.

We all slept like well - pillows were soft and comfortable also - ample linen supplied in our bathroom Breakfast - complimentary - consisted of pancakes; fresh fruits; breads; bagels; oatmeal; cereals; cheese omelettes; white omelettes; turkey sausage; tea/coffee/hot chocolate; selection of juices; all the spreads & condiments; yoghurts etc - the breakfast room was packed in the mornings for breakfast Parking - free - on-site - self-parking - can be tight at night Wifi - free - great connectivity - we experienced zero drop outs Pools - has pools/slides etc - our daughter only used the main pool once, as the slides weren’t open Check-Out - easy, quick!
