Staff not helpful in providing information if you dont ask very specific questions. Other guests in the hotel were more informative. Breakfast area was closed so we were offered nutri grain bars if we wait in line at the front desk to ask for them. The hot tub had to be reserved, which was already booked. Then, the hot tub broke, so we never got to use it. The pool was not heated either. On the good side, the rooms were clean!!! The bed was comfortable. After a couple of nights we got used to the pillows. The airport shuttle was good. However, there was not a shuttle to the railroad like other hotels. This was because this hotel let someone else use their shuttle. Overall, not impressed and will not stay here again.

This Holiday Inn was looking a little tired when we were there. The location is great as it's very near the airport. It is right next to a McDonalds and a Wendy's. It's close to the float plane park which was cool as we'd never seen that before. The hotel was a bit understaffed when we were there. This is a problem everywhere right now so hopefully it will improve soon. The room was nice. The breakfast was fine for coronavirus weird circumstances, but otherwise not so much.

Trash in the stairwells, dirt in the elevator, plus grass, gravel, and smashed cheese puffs in my room. There was a layer of dust on my tissue box; sheets under the bedspread were rumpled—which made me wonder if the sheets were even changed after the last guest. I have stayed in many Holiday Inn Express hotels, but this, by far was the dirtiest. I booked because of “clean facility” reviews, but was totally disappointed and disgusted. Dirty room with beat up furniture from the 70’s make this a single star hotel—I’d take the points off the star, if I could.

Was dirty and ran down. Bathroom had dried pee on the floor by toilet. Chair had unknown substance on it. Bed was hard but pillows were nice. Sheets stiff and itchy. Jets in tub were nice but the tub wasn’t deep or long enough. Mold on ceiling. Caulking around the tub was disgusting. Floor was dirty. Hallways were dirty as well. Front desk at staff was nice. I can’t believe I actually slept in there. Big waste of money NOT WORTH IT AT ALL!!
