“Remodeled but still good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

A remodeled holiday inn but still nice. No mini fridge if that is important to you. The bed was very comfortable and had soft and firm pillows with indicator which were which. The heater was an older window unit that was a little noisy. Since I got the room on priceline cheap it was worth the money.

Stayed for a quick 1 night when the weather meant could not go on to normal destination.
the reception and attitude were both excellent and for me the meal was too.
Like many holiday inns - the decor is a bit tired - but so what - it was clean and functional. The TV was very big. Clearly a popular hotel for conventions and meetings.

Passed through the area and needed a one nighter. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was pleasant and hard working. Night desk clerk went out of her way to get us a room we wanted....then saw her working hard the next morning cleaning rooms! Snacks given in the evening. Breakfast was standard HI-Ex fare, well stocked and hot. Would stay again.

Always a great place to stay. The staff is wonderful!!! This is the first time we ate at the hotel and the food was very good. Breakfast was very good. I can't wait for next year to go back. The staff told us a couple of new restraunts to try that were wonderful, and the taxi service they called was great. 2 of the best taxi drivers I have ever had.

1 of the nicest hotels ever stayed at.
the staff is exceptionally friendly and the hotel is very clean and very comfortable right down to the beds and pillows.
we have been staying here 2 to 4 nights a week with my company getting 3 to 4 rooms per week and if we have any problems with a room, the front desk has no problem getting us in another room ASAP.

I stayed here for ten days on business. The in-house restaurant has a simple but nice breakfast menu (the garden omelet is tasty and not too heavy), lunch and dinner have a little variety and are pretty well done. the rooms were clean, comfortable and well-maintained. Internet was a little slow, but that probably varies a good b it with room location. It's a minor irritation to have to log in every 24 hours using a password that changes weekly. Staff was friendly and helpful. The housekeeping was limited -- made up the bed, fresh towels, etc. but didn't do some things I would have expected, like removing used plates and coffee cups.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

Kenny, the guest services night attendant, was the friendliest person we have had the opportunity to meet on the week long vacation we took. When we arrived he was baking cookies, cleaning up, folding laundry, and seemed to be busy the entire time. Of the other 6 hotels we stayed in, he was by far the friendliest and hardest working person we encountered. One HUGE issue I had was the fact that he wanted to charge me $20.00 for a box of laundry detergent (3 load size). I thought he was joking but he was serious! They had recently had a meeting and the manager said to charge $20.00. I had to walk down to the convenience store and bought a box for $9.89 that would do 20 loads. I asked the girl at the front desk the next morning how much detergent was and she said $1.00. I was furious!! She said that Kenny must have thought Rich, the manager, was serious about charging $20.00. Very poor management, if you ask me. Kenny might be all of 20 yrs old, if that! Rich, the manager, should have made it clear in the meeting and not made a joke of it. I have sent a written complaint and have yet to even be acknowledged by them. Won't stay there again!
