I typically stay at another property when in this area but it was sold out and they booked me at this Holiday Inn. It was a busy week and I got the last room and it was at a higher rate ... I understand supply and demand though.
The lobby, pool area and breakfast all feel modern and nice. There was always people milling around the pool area, I wished I had time to go read my book poolside for a bit. Front desk staff was helpful. My room wasn't quite ready upon arrival and they offered me a water bottle. The room was then done quicker than they expected which was nice.
My room felt a tad bit dated, older windows, felt like it needed a pick-me up. It was also a handicap accessible room. I was a little surprised after walking through the lobby that I liked. Wireless worked at acceptable speeds.
Location near highway didn't bother me and I slept soundly. A few different restaurants within walking distance. They have a partnership with the gym next door. Plenty of parking. The breakfast was well maintained and very clean.
I'd stay again, especially if I booked in advance and got a more aggressive rate than what I paid. But I was glad to have a room!
