The staff at the front desk was snotty and treated myself and my family as if they were irritated we were there. Not to mention a staff member at the front desk told my parents who were also staying in the room next door that only suites have everyday linen changes and fresh clean towels. I refuse to go back...

We didn't meet a single unfriendly staff member while here- they were all accommodating and friendly and eager to help with anything. The room is...well...old and dingy. It has a mildew smell with a strong cleaner smell on top of it- maybe carpet cleaner? The furnishings are run-down but functional. The bed was pretty comfortable. The bathroom was basic. Toiletries... More

I was surprised how nice this hotel ended up being. My favorite parts were the pillows. You have a choice or firm or soft. I have never seen that before. Normally I either bring my own pillow or end up with a stiff neck so this was a really thoughtful touch. I also like that there is room service and... More

I recently stayed here with m family for a brief visit. Not knowing the area, and reading some fairly harsh reviews of other local-ish hotels I was a bit unnerved.

We recently spent 4 nights at this Holiday Inn. The room was a clean, comfortable, king room. The bed and pillows were very comfortable.
