Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We were on the 4th floor facing toward #101. Sound from the road was not annoying. People running, laughing and yelling in the hallway well past 11:00 p.m. was quite annoying (a bit much even for a Saturday night). The desk clerk kindly tried to put us in a room away from the elevator, ice machine, etc., so none of...

My husband and I stayed here with our dog, as this place is dog friendly. Check-in was a breeze and did not take very long. We then made it to our room, which thankfully, wasn't a "you've got a dog, stay in THIS room" room. The room was clean and quite large, and I felt it to be wasted space...

The Best Points of this Holiday Inn were the comfortable beds and close proximity to the freeway. Some service was provided when asked, but Unfortunately, for one of the three rooms our family occupied for four days there were several negatives. For the suite, the beds were NEVER made up during the day, trash was only partially removed each day,...

The visit started with a real poor check in. The staff struggled to get us checked in and made their problems our problems. No apology for the delay or hassle just excuses and blame storming. The rooms a very large but stark. The restaurant is expensive and empty.

The hotel itself is very nice, comfortable and relaxing. However, in my most recent stay, I decided to try the breakfast and ordered something simple - French Toast and an omelette. The cook must have forgotten how to make (dip white bread into a egg/milk mixture & grill to golden brown). What I received was bits of scrambled egg on...

We always stay at this hotel multiple times a year to visit with family. We've never questioned the cleanliness of this hotel as everything has been great. As we checked in, the employee gave us room options. We get settled into our room to find a used condom. Ewww. I was so disgusted I told my boyfriend we need to...

The hotel is nice, and the front desk staff was very friendly. The room is spacious, but there is only one chair in the room. We stayed two nights in the same room, but after the first night, they did not change the towels and add shampoo and soap, not to mention changing the bedding.

Outwardly these places always look ok, but the interior was old with cracked tiles in bathroom and shower didn't work. The location just off the 101 is easy to get to. It was good that we had two rooms booked and could share bathrooms otherwise without a working shower it would've been a challenge to get out in time. With...
