We stayed here for the kids State Championship Swim Meet in Sulphur. My wife and kids checked in on Thursday and I flew in and met up with them on Saturday. She said she had no problems checking in- thankfully.She did note that although we're priority club platinum members, there was no special recognition or treat bag or anything- no biggie- the kids would have been really impressed though.
The room was decent- although near the interstate, we couldn't hear any road noise. The matresses were a bit cheap feeling and really springy- kind of like sleeping on an trampoline. The airconditioner was the biggest pain- when set on 68, it would turn off and the room would get HOT. Finally figured out that you just have to turn it down to 60 to keep the room comfortably cool enough. That actually kept the room to around 68 overnight.
We were disappointed that we weren't allowed a late checkout. This is one of the reasons we're priority club members and selected this hotel- having to have a quick start on checkout day, the plan was to jump up, eat, go to the meet, and then check out between am and PM events around 1:30. Instead, my wife had to leave the event at 10:30, miss some of the kids' events, check out by 11..... If we'd known this, we would have stayed elsewhere.
The Holiday Express breakfast was as good as always- very well done, clean, and fast. Many thanks for that.
We used priority club reward points for this stay because they offered the room for the least amount of points required. Overall, I'd say it was worth it. Next time, when I'm paying out of pocket, i"ll probably opt for somewhere else- maybe the regular Holiday Inn.
