We took a high school basketball team to this hotel last week for a tournament in the area. They were extremely accommodating for our group. Judy checked us in, and she was delightful and efficient. Our reservation was ready for us when we arrived, and there were no problems getting in to the rooms. We had several 2 queen bed suites (with a couch and a kitchenette), and one king size suite (also with a couch and a kitchenette). The price was comparable or better than the other hotels around. The rooms were all very clean.
On our first night, while we were out, apparently they had MANY walk-ins that they were not expecting. So, breakfast the next morning was a bit challenging. It was obvious that they were trying to keep up, but with a bunch of unexpected guests and 11 high school aged boys, they were having a hard time. Breakfast was filling a tasty...exactly what I have eaten at other Holiday Inn Expresses.
The only issue we had while we were there was on the first night when the boys first got to their room. Just as we were all walking into our rooms the front desk called to tell us that someone was complaining about how loud we were being. I explained to her that we were just walking into our rooms. She assured me that she told the people that that was the case, but she just wanted to be sure that we knew someone was already complaining. I told the boys (who were in the hall picking rooms), and there were no more issues or complaints.
I took my preschoolers swimming while we were there. They LOVED it, as did I. It is a small pool, but perfect for the kids. They provide towels poolside, which is such a nice option.
Overall, this was a very nice choice for us with all of these boys. The suites, with their pull out couches, give you so many options for how to arrange all the kids.
