This is an old hotel with an ugly exterior and an updated interior. The owners spent some money, but I'd characterize it as "updates on a budget".

Our first room had a sofa bed with so many springs missing that the mattress literally fell through to the floor when my son sat on it. The staff moved us promptly when we contacted them.

The second room (where they moved us) had a thermostat that didn't quite work. After repacking our stuff, and moving it to the new room, we didn't bother complaining a second time.

There are a lot of smokers here, and I believe all rooms were smoking at one point. The lobby bar was a cloud of cigarette smoke, and was playing 80's rock music WAY too loud.

They advertise having a "casino". Note: in this part of the country "casino" means ONLY slot machines. No table games. And the casino is a short drive across the parking lot and up the hill, not connected to the hotel.

The Holiday Inn Meadowlands is an adequately updated, old hotel with old mechanicals. At best, it is acceptable for a 1 night stay if you're driving through.

The staff at check in wasn't particularly friendly. Neither was the staff when we checked out.

All of that said, the rooms and common spaces are decently updated, the beds were comfortable enough, and the staff was helpful enough. We had a decent night of sleep.

This is not what I had expected at all. My husband is in the oilfield and we live in Louisiana. We made reservations from home. My husband ask for a smoking room, ends up it was on the 6th floor. Walked into the room and walked straight over to the window and opened curtains, no windows that can be open or cracked. Patio doors that open to nothingness, but you couldn't open them, they are permently scotched with a metal clamp. No fresh air can be exposed to this room. The large comforter on the bed has a big burn on top of it which is now a hole. The couch in the room is just filthy, it has some kind of nasty stains on it, you think that they would clean it, after all we are paying around $135.00 for the room.
You have to pay $25 dollars for a microwave and refrigorator, and they bring them in and plunk them on the floor, like your a kid. So we had to move it to a lamp table, so we wouldn't have to bend down to the floor to use it. Unfortunetley we are going to be stuck here for an extended stay which will be about a month. Have looked for rooms somewhere else but no extended stays available, so we are stuck.
The rooms are not worth the price that we are paying.
Go some where else because this place is not a pleasure. It is not clean. We usually stay in the holiday inn express and they are always nice and clean so I figured the big holiday inn would be superb, I am very dissapointed!
We went down to eat at the very nice (so we thought) restaurant, I ordered the scallops and the service was wonderful and the food tasted good. There were three of us and the bill was over $60.00 plus tip. At three o'clock I woke up with stomach cramps and throwing up, apparently the scallops were spoiled, I stayed up all night sick. Do not eat at their restaurant unless you want to be sick.
I am sorry but I cannot think of anything positive to say about the place, so just find a better place to stay.
I am including pictures.

While returning to our home in NW pa. from an extended stay in Fla. we decided to stop for the night at the "Holiday Inn Meadowlands". What a mistake that was. We were not informed that it was a Pet friendly motel, and that the smoking rooms were on the same floor as the pets rooms.
Since we had traveled that day from Columbia,S.C. we were very tired and didnt notice the condition of the rooms immediately. When I went to take a shower,there was a clump of hair in the tub. Then I started to look around the room. The drawers in the desk were broken and hanging. The floor was filthy. One side of the box springs on the bed looked like blood had flowed down the side of it. When room service put our food down on the table,the table was broken,and had it not been for my husband,it would have ended up on the floor. Then the pet parade started,I wondered what the commotion in the hall was so I looked out the peephole, there was a lady with two large dogs on leashes going down the hall. Then a man with a doberman. This went on most of the evening. Then came the banging. At 10:45 p.m. we called the desk to see if they could stop the banging noise.
They said the manager would check it out, and get back to us. They never got back to us. We would have left the motel,but my husband has trouble walking, is a diabetic, and we were exhausted. When we checked out at 7:a.m. I asked to see the manager. I was told there was no manager on duty, and wouldnt be one until 9:a.m. I filled out the survey,told the clerk what the problem had been, and she said she would tell the manager. In late April I received a letter from their headquarters,thanking us for staying there. They asked me to fill out a survey.I did that, and I also wrote a 2 page letter about our miserable stay. Here it is June, and I have heard nothing from them. I guess they really dont care if they get return customers. That was $110.00 not well spent.
