Went for my bday and took my 3 1/2 yr old daughter so we could get some swimming in, she loves water! I didn't realize the slide was only open during weekend but after asking about it the staff actually opened it for us beings it was Xmas weekend and there were lots of people. My daughter was thrilled! She got to go down 3 times(only because her and another little boy her size were too small...48" requirement, no adults can ride with kid) but she loved all 3 times tho! It was a pretty chilly down by the pool but pretty hot on the 4th floor, that's the only reason for the 4 star rating. I understand its because the way the building is set up but i was freezing getting out the pool! My room was on 4th floor right by slide, walked in and noticed the big lcd tv right away! Found it hard to cool the room down tho. Other than that tho it was nice, had a nice living area where we ordered and ate pizza. Bed was nice and the tv was great while we fell asleep! Free breakfast buffet gave us a great start to the day! The staff was very nice and will definitely recommend to others!

Clean quiet room with a great rate. Hot breakfast was wonderful complete with premium coffee, real silverware and plates, and excellent service - all included at no charge. Lots of guests showed up at the last minute and the staff continued to bring out hot fresh food with no complaints. You don't see that very often. Kudos to the Holidome staff! Nice pool area, inroom fridge, micro, and coffee. We will come back again.

Great rooms & sleep quality. Service was amazingly good. Restaurant in-house is also good.
Best part of the hotel was the in door entertainment. Get your kids along, they won't get bored. Just one problem... the location is a little off from city center. But hey with Topeka traffic, you are never late!

Built in the older Holidome style, it's great for families with kids, with a pool, hot tub and waterslide in the middle of the hotel, also has a well stocked family area with fooseball, pool and video games. Bar had great service, and a very good FREE hot breakfast every day. Staff was always very helpful, and never hesitated to make me feel comfortable.

Room Tip: Choose away from rooms facing the Holidome. Loud and echos all the time.

First time to Topeka and this Holiday Inn. It was very nice. Clean, well maintained and very friendly staff. The room was very big and the pool had a huge slide, the kids would've loved coming here! We have been staying at Holiday Inn Hotels for years and love the Priority Club. We take weekend getaways with our points at hotels listed under the Point Breaks a couple times a year.

This hotel was a pleasant stay with comfortable beds. The desk staff were "awesomeness" and acknowledged at check-in that we have many choices and they appreciated our choosing them for this stay.

On the CLC rate and payment system, our choices aren't as varied as we'd like, but we still won't settle.

The bathroom was typical, and did show some age, but was clean. The double queen NO-SMOKING ground-floor room was spacious with a separate large desk, free internet with the CAT5 cable attached, offered another table with a coffee maker, and a side chair. The armoir held an old style TV (not flat screen) and 3 drawers for clothes. We decided upon check-in to stay an extra night. The carpet was clean and the room smelled nice.

As Gold Priority Club members, we really appreciate the IHG policy of giving us points, even tho we are using CLC for payment. (Too bad Choice hotels don't recognize customers have lots of choices and will spend our $$$ where we choose!)

Room Tip: Is a large complex with long hallways, even tho there are many access doors to the parking areas.

If this is the 2nd best hotel in Topeka, I'd be scared to stay at the others! The old Holiday-dome has been thru a renovation, so I was surprised that the beds were so lumpy, and the sheets uncomfortable. The counter in the bathroom had been updated, but that's it. Everything else was old, including the cheap doors, of which our lock didn't work properly. Every time I changed in the bathroom, my entire hand would hit the ceiling, and I'm not tall.

In addition, the breakfast that everyone raves about was a huge disappointment: cold bacon, bananas so brown you'd make banana bread with them...and the selection really wasn't that much more than a typical hotel breakfast - just spread out more.

On the positive side, the staff was friendly, and it was clean. The slide did look fun, but it wasn't open the hours we were there.
