For the value this hotel was great, up to what you expect with a Holiday Inn.
Very clean, even though it was busy and we got a smoking room, there was the faint smell when you first walked in. Beds were comfortable, bathroom clean.
Beautiful indoor swimming pool and hot tub. Fitness area as well.
Awesome continental breakfast.
Shuttle service was fantastic. Our drive actually gave us a history lesson of the different buildings as he drove us to our restaurant.
As for surroundings, I wouldnt say this is a great family spot. Construction, off busy interstate and then your directly across from bus terminal. The city is old, but for tourist attractions I don't think there is a lot to see or do. If you are going in to see something at The Egg or have businiess I would highly recommend. We were stopping through with a 3 & 5 yr old so not the best area with them.
