My husband and I were visiting from out of state at the end of July to attend a friend's wedding. We chose this hotel because we usually stay at a Holiday Inn or another hotel with this brand when we travel.
We had read reviews (on Trip Advisor) that the hotel had been remodeled and we weren't disappointed.
The lobby was decorated with some relaxing colors and comfortable modern furniture. The rooms also reflected updated colors and comfortable furnishings.
The hotel was very clean - we are acutely attentive to this aspect and the hotel met with our standards of cleanliness.
Breakfast was fairly standard - it's the same as what is served in other Holiday Inn's - pretty decent selection. I'm probably more picky than my husband when it comes to breakfast because I'm not much into traditional breakfast food, but no problem - I ate a muffin, a boiled egg and some coffee and juice. All good.
We didn't get to use the pool, but it looked clean and well-maintained.
Decent selection of TV channels.
Noise level was okay after the child in the room above us stopped scampering back and forth incessantly for about 1 1/2 hours at about 8:30pm (where do they get the stamina). Truly, it wasn't bad overall - we were on the first floor at the end of the hall to the right and other than the aerobic workout incident, we never really heard any noise.
We were disappointed to see that whoever owns the lot in front of the hotel, has allowed it to become a mess, with the abandoned building sitting in a state of decay. I remember from when I lived in Ross County, that this lot used to house a Bob Evans, and now, it's just an eyesore. Someone with the funding and initiative is missing an opportunity because I'm sure there are plenty of hotel guests who would rather walk to a nice restaurant next door as opposed to braving the traffic on North Bridge Street (which has only gotten progressively worse over the years).
This hotel had an excellent rate for state employees, which was a bonus for us since I am a state employee and we could use the discount.
We would stay here again - it's easy to access from north or south - close to gas stations, and there's a Tim Horton's right down the street.
