After a stay two years ago at a bad Holiday Inn, I had sworn off this chain and stayed here only because I was part of a group and had the reservations made for me. This stay showed me that Holiday Inns can be a good deal - thanks especially to the staff here. The hotel had clean and spacious room, and included a small frig and microwave in the room. I had no problems with the toiletries or shower (as a different poster mentioned). The fitness room is decent - one each of a tread mill, elliptical and recumbent bike, as well as some weight machines. Towels available in the fitness room. There was also a small pool, although I didn't use it. I had several requests and the staff, specifically Debbie, were fabulous in getting things in place for me. I also overheard a phone call Debbie received from another guest who couldn't figure out how to get the in-room coffee maker to work. After an explanation, the person still didn't understand, so Debbie offered to go up to the room to show him how to do it. That's some personalized service. The hotel is a few blocks from a small shopping center that has a Food Lion, dollar store, and discount clothing shop. Several casual restaurants are also in walking distance (IHOP, Golden Corral), as is a COSTCO. There is no sidewalk directly outside the hotel, although there is a path and, about a block later, a sidewalk. I didn't use the hotel restaurant, but others in my group did. They gave a thumbs up to the food, although said the service was slow, which could be a problem if you need to leave early. Restaurant opens at 6 a.m. I would definitely return to this hotel. Free wi-fi access in your room, and two computers in the lobby you can also use. It has restored good feelings about the Holiday Inn chain.
