Due to a mix up on our reservations at Holiday Inn Express and no rooms available to meet out needs we were sent over this hotel.
Pro: The receptionist Debbie was great. She was very friendly and helpful in getting us two rooms close together considering most hotels were full due to the baseball and other activities for the weekend. The location was great. Very close to the mall and places to eat. Easy access to US 69.
CONS: This is not what I would consider a hotel for the section that we stayed in. It was very oblivious it had been renovated. New comfortable bedding and furniture. But the rooms are exterior rooms, doors open to outside, and although the rooms appeared cleaned they smelled old and musty. The air conditioner was so loud we did not run it in order for us to sleep. Thankful it was not to hot. Neither my husband nor I are very large but the bathroom was small and cramped. There is no closet. The closet area is in the vanity area with a small rack. This is definitely not a hotel by my standards.
I would only recommend it if you don't mind this type of setup. For me it would not be worth the regular price being charged nor meet the security needs if your have children or a group staying together that will be visiting from room to room. We travel with large family groups and with our kids and grandkids. The hotel setup, cleanliness, and security is very important to us.
