I stayed here 5 times during the summer of 2007 while in the area on business. I was working night shift so I had to sleep during the daytime. The hotel staff was courteous and did the housekeeping tasks around my sleep schedule. Although I stayed here numerous times and am a Priority Club Platinum member, not once did I get offered a room upgrade.
The rooms are standard Holiday Inn quality, and were kept quite clean. There was a problem with the exit door leading to the parking lot near my room. Basically, it would not unlock when someone from the inside approached it unless you walked up at a specific angle. This remained unfixed during all of my stays, and would be very dangerous in a fire situation.
I ate in the restraunt one night and the service was very slow despite being nearly empty of customers, but the food was good. The large pool area looks clean and inviting for families, although I didn't try it out. There are not many restaurants nearby (White Castle is right next door), but a couple of miles north you have numerous options.
I'd probably stay here again when I return to the area in the future.
