The wife and I stayed there Saturday night November 26, 2016. We had a room with 2 queen beds. The room and bathroom were very nice and well maintained. A variety of 4 pillows are on each bed with varying degrees of firmness. A small Keurig coffee maker is in each room. For the most part we were very pleased... More

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was as expected for a a Holiday Inn. We will be back. Plenty of parking for larger vehicles. The only restaurant that is walk-able from the property is Burger King.

We stayed here one Saturday night on our drive home from Florida. We had booked ahead and were glad we did as the hotel was sold out. It seems like there are races in the area and all the hotels book up. The room was very comfortable and clean as was the rest of the hotel. Staff was very friendly.... More

Enjoyed our one night stay at this hotel. Front desk acknowledged our IHG spire status and upgraded us to a very comfortable suite. All the staff we encountered were very pleasant. Compliments to the housekeeping staff who take care of the third floor, super nice and helpful folks.

We spent two nights. Checkin was quick and everything about our stay was perfect. Room 309 was close to the elevator but never heard any noise. We paid slightly more for a mountain view, which was great. Free breakfast was the normal offering. One employee who need mentioned is the lady working the breakfast on Tuesday, Oct. 25. The pride...

Traveling north from South Carolina to Washington Dc. This was a perfect place to stop for the night. Very nicely decorated. Fresh and updated. Fast check in, room was nice. Very quiet. Mattress was a little lumpy but not awful. Average breakfast, very neat and clean. Lots of parking.
