The rooms/hotel are a bit dated (I'm sure it's been remodeled at least a few times since it's start as a Holiday Inn in the 80's). The bathroom was very clean and the bed was good, too.

We stayed here for a night. Was all we needed. A clean quiet place to stay. Short drive to shopping. Indoor pool was closed due to maintenance but that was ok. The breakfast was good. Would stay here again.

My stay was excellent at this facility. I received the utmost care and concern from the front desk staff. The house cleaning staff wanted to make sure at least two or three times on each visit that we had everything that was needed. They even left a few extra towels / wash cloths just in case it would be needed....

The reviews were mixed about 50/50 so I was a little hesitant. We booked two rooms . Check-in was quick and seamless. The rooms were clean and larger than expected with a table...
