This place is good. We picked it because we needed a place to stay outside of Nashville and thought the Superman appeal would be fun. I read all the Trip Advisor reports on the other hotels available in the area and this one had the best appeal. The hotel is clean and the staff is pleasant, however we could hear everything from the floor above us. Not much in the way in soundproofing. The beds were very stiff. Getting dinner was a bit of a chore. There is the usual fast food choices but not anything else if you have children. As mentioned by a couple of others, children are not allowed in the Harrah’s casino restaurants. We ordered from Pizza Hut and had them deliver. For us it was better than having to drive back into Metropolis and dine at the local Taco Bell. The one upside of the hotel is that their ho Continental breakfast in morning was pretty decent. That helped us get a quick start on our way to Nashville in the AM. No fault of the Holiday Inn, but next time we will probably drive straight through…the area is just not that appealing. Oh Yes, Our daughter loved the Indoor Pool. We found it to be a bit chilly. We are from Florida though!
