I stayed here a lot these the past 12 months. My last review was about a year ago and needs updating. At that time of my last review they had just upgraded the beds and bedding (which is outstanding). Usually this is followed by a general room upgrade. A year later the same furniture, carpet and TV remain (old 27' tube TV with limited programing). All are not not in terrible shape but are really showing their age.
Staff remains friendly and accomindating. NO problems there. Sorry to see Beverly is not there anymore. She was great! Maid service has improved. I no longer find the hallways dirty or carts from room service left out for extended periods of time.
Th biggest problem is the 10.00 per day per item charge for a microwave or mini fridge This really is a bad policy. Even the dive motels provide these for free. Cheap toiletress and no continental breakfast are also negatives.. At a published rate of 97.00 (Satuday wth tax) their is no value compared to the neighboring hotels. You can book The Staybridge Suites or Candlewood suites for the same price and get a larger room equiped with a kitchenette. Staybridge is the better of the two and offers free breafast every day and dinner 3 nights a week. Laundry machines are free @ both. If you book the Holiday Inn through name you own price @ priceline.com (45-55 total) then it becomes a good deal if you do not need the appliances.
