“Had two very decent stays here”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Stayed here twice last month. Had prior reservations both times. Front desk was courteous. Rooms were clean. Tub drained OK. Everything except the blackout curtains in room 505 worked. On second stay had no issues at all. In this market it's better than average.

Everything was above average except the beds. The mattress was either old or just not comfortable. The sheets were wrinkled and thin but towels were very new and soft.

If you are just passing through and need a clean ,quiet room this hotel is fine.

I attended a three day conference at this facility. My room was spotless when I checked in. Check in was fast and courteous. The facility is very attractive as you enter with large comfortable chairs and couches grouped for intimate visiting and mini-meetings. The free Wi-Fi was a big plus and was easy to access and use. My favorite thing was the pool. Opens early enough to take a swim before sitting through business meetings and late enough for another dip before bed if desired. The complimentary breakfast was tasty (although the same every morning) with enough variety to not have to eat the same thing every morning. The area for eating was large and clean and well stocked. There is ample parking and a room just off the main entrance with an abundance of nice new bellman carts for guest use when arriving or departing. During an afternoon meeting in the large conference room, I stepped out to take some medicine and when I asked for change at the front desk to buy a bottle of water from the vending machine, the desk clerk gave me a bottle of cold water from their refrigerator behind the desk. The servers at our luncheons and dinners were very nice, efficient, and helpful. The food was as good as large business meeting food can get (same salad, etc, but different main course and sides each meal). The best thing was the wonderful yeasty rolls they serve with every meal. Housekeeping seems to pay attention to detail when cleaning. Nothing was out of place or in need of replenishment when they left. All in all a great time. I would stay here again any time I am in that area.

Room Tip: If you can, ask for an inside room on the second or third floor. There are balconies or at least wit...

I just was connected to the internet through your (Holiday Inn, Mount Vernon) service (I am a current guest) and chuckled at the spade of poor reviews on your own site. I was just in the restaurant tonight and another woman started a conversation about how poor the service is here, and how dated the hotel appears. Another gentleman jumped in the conversation saying that the restaurant staff were in a tizzy trying to serve the few tables that were present and how he was taking his group of 10 guests across the street to Buffalo Wild Wings instead of eating as planned at the hotel. This isn't a bandaid fix, or a lecture or correction to a particular staff member. This clearly is a reflection on the management team who permits an on-going lackluster commitment to customer service and an acceptance of mediocracy.

First time stay here. Staff was very friendly. Easy check in/out. Sports bar restaurant. Ok food, good service. Room was fine with great bed linens and a king size bed. Ladies-bring hair conditioner and shower cap. The rest is provided. While a bit tired, they are upgrading (linens, extended shower curtain, free wifi). I would stay here again.

We travel frequently with our dog. It's not that easy finding a hotel that provides rooms that look and smell clean when you travel with your dog. That is what we want and that is what we found at the Mt Vernon Holiday Inn.

Room Tip: Room 507 had a bit of a shower drain problem. We reported it. Hopefully it is fixed.

I stopped here while on a road trip & within an hour of checking in, had injured myself on a 6 inch piece of metal protruding off the bed frame & hidden by the bedskirt. The front desk kindly offered to take $5 off my bill for the. She seemed indifferent to say the least. On my return home I contacted the hotel manager & explained what happened, sent pictures of the bed and injury, and he kindly sent a certificate for a free night stay which I may or may not use. From one who travels a great deal, this is how customer service should be handled!
