I needed to stay at this hotel for 3 days because of company business interests in the area. Normally, I stay with choice hotels brand but i came over to holiday inn because one of my colleagues as staying here. I reserved a room for a 3day period through Orbitz. I arrived at the hotel around 3:20pm and when i approached the front desk to check inn they said they didn't have my room ready. I thought to myself, okay it just might take about 10-15 minutes, so I sat down in the lobby and waited. 30 minutes pass and I return to the front desk and the lady working there said my room is still not ready because of a housekeeping problem. At this point i was angry because they at least could have told me 30 minutes ago. She went on saying that it would take about another 15-20 minutes. I was already frustrated because of work, so I threw my things back in the car and went to eat out. Coming back around 4:30 they finally had my room ready, and the lady was being quite quite rude about it. I had to ask her for most of the information about the hotel and surrounding areas instead of the other way around. Finally entering my room i collapsed on the bed and noticed there were no pillows ! I guess in the rush of cleaning my room they didn't do it correctly, calling the front desk i had to go all the way downstairs to get my 2 pillows and back. When I woke in the morning about 8:00am I went down to breakfast to find it completely wiped out. I thought this was a buffet? There were a few pieces of bread and bagels, and their "legendary cinnamon rolls" were not so "legendary" they were actually quite cold as if they weren't heated. Finishing my bagel and a simple cup of coffee I left to work. The thing was though i wasn't coming back a hotel of this stature should have much better expectations than this.

I've learned my lesson to stay with my choice hotel properties, at least they're reliable.

This Holiday has new rooms and i decided to stay here because I usually stay at Comfort Suites but I wanted to try something new. I reserved a room over the phone, a single bed, speaking with a lady at the front desk, she kept on insisting I get a room 1, I could not afford, and 2 that i didnt need. This lady seemed liked she wanted to empty my pockets rather than making me happy. Anyways checking in i believe i met with the same lady i spoke to over the phone, the hotel seemed to be deserted on a weekend so i was given service, the lady apparently knew how to talk but could not actually give me a room.. I'm thinking this is possibly because of her inadequate training. Now I had to go to work soon and a simple checking in process was taking in 10-15 minutes, she kept on asking another man " how do i do this" and "now what? " This became extremely annoying but eventually i recieved my keycard. The next day, the housekeeper came to service my room and i couldn't understand a word ! I noticed the man next to me had the exact same problem.. The room was alright and the breakfast was the same. Overall This hotel needs to learn how to train its employee before giving service, and they need to make sure their housekeepers clean the rooms entirely because i found food in the fridge which definetly was left by a previous guest. All in all i give it a 2/5

We opened on August 1, 2008. Although it is not an excuse, we were new and now have a fully trained staff committed to 100% Guest Satisfaction. I would welcome you back and give us a try to really experience the difference. We all go through growing pains and we have gone through ours. I can guarantee an enjoyable stay at our hotel.

Thank you for your comments, they only make us work harder to provide the exceptional service that you could expect from a Holiday Inn Express.
