I stayed here in June 2013. When pulling up it seemed a little confusing because there was another hotel surronding the Holiday Inn. The area seemed older. So we checked in and went to the room. The room had a weird musty smell to it. In addition the lounge chair seemed old and had a HUGE stain on it!! Not a chair I would want to relax in. It's hard enough knowing you are sleeping in a room hundreds or thousands of people have stayed without being reminded with a used looking stained chair. So overall the room was OK not great.
On a positive side, the following morning they had complimentary breakfast which was really good with a good deal of variety. Then we sat out by the pool area which was updated and clean. That was very nice and relaxing!
As far as managment or personel, we really did not see much or anyone meeting with the guest so I can't really say if they were nice or not. The front desk was not good or bad. They did there jobs but no over the top experience.
So overall to me just an average stay. If the rooms were a bit better I would rank higher.
