This title refers to the hotel, not the writer. This place needs a huge revamping: the sheets felt old and pilly, the heating/cooling system has been changed, but unusable thermostats were still on the wall. The closet in our room had no door, just nail holes and magnets where the door had once been. The wall treatment were pealing, light switch plates were crooked and the pull out bed shouldn't ever be slept on. The mattress was little more than covered springs, which were poking through in some places, sleeping on it, all I could feel were the tops of the springs supporting my body, even while laying on top of a blanket and a sheet.
There are two elevators, one of them works, sometimes.
There is a pool, but it was freezing.
On the plus side, this hotel is clean, with an ever-present army of maids, they're everywhere. In the halls, in the elevator, in the lobby... and they start knocking on doors at 8AM! Really?
I have stayed at many Holiday Inn Express locations, and this was one of the worst.
