Was a decent hotel but does needs some updating. First of all last time I was at this hotel it was back in 2004 when it was a Holiday Inn, I was 14 years old at the time. Doesn't look like it changed too much except they got rid of one of the onsite restaurants & the onsite bar. That and the gift shop sorta like the ones they have at hospitals. The TV's also don't have the On Demand programs and movie feature or the built in playstations that you payed for by the hour. No big deal the Playstation only had a 3 game lineup anyways. Also the Tv's have a 30 channel lineup compared to the previous 13. You don't usually go to a hotel for the TV features to begin with anyways.
Stayed there to go to a Depeche Mode concert on the night of September the 14th. The room was clean and the breakfast was good. I also loved the pool and just to overall appearance of the lobby. However there is a few issues that I feel I should bring up.
Cigerette Burn holes in the sheets in a non-smoking room
Electrical Socket hanging out of wall
Broken and Removed tiles from the hotel pool
Used soap left on top of shower rail
Lid on coffee pot has tendency to spill even when its on tight. I just removed lid and it worked fine.
Hallway outside room was very dirty. There was a dirty plate left out of someones room, nasty.
Breakfast and good and consisted of Grits, Eggs, Sausage and Home Fries. As well as Muffins, Cereals, Milk, Juice, Coffee and Toast. Just like a breakfast at a restaurant.
Place is good for staying the night, the price is also very reasonable considering I payed $53 for the room and just a little over $60 with tax. The hotel was a reflagged Holiday Inn and I'm just hoping the hotel becoming a Clarion Inn franchise and lower room rate wasn't just an excuse to let the property go to dumps. Hotel needs work!
