Great breakfast, comfy beds, and clean rooms. That being said, the internet is near non-existent which makes life unbearable when you work out of town as much as I do. Calls to the front desk have done nothing to remedy it.

Stopped on our way through. The staff was very hospitable. If we decide to stop for the night on the way through we would for sure stay again. Great service, comfortable beds and the hotel is very clean.

I have to be completely honest and say that I am not a big fan of the Holiday Inn chain, they are just very inconsistent with their hotels and you never know what you will get. However this hotel almost made me change my mind, the location is very convenient and the rooms are super clean. The only negative for... More

We arrived late, about 9:30pm. The front desk clerk was friendly. We asked about pool hours and she said it closed at 10, but that she was closing it so she would leave it open until 11 if we wanted to swim. The pool was a good size, and the hot tub was very relaxing. Our room was very clean,... More

They have some smoking rooms and our entire floor smelled like a dirty ash tray. Even with a nonsmoking room, it felt like we had to walk through smokey bar to get there. Not to mention that most of the smokers are probably smoking in bed. That kinda scares me. From now on, we will only be staying in nonsmoking... More

Rooms are nice and clean and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.
