I arrived during morning rush hour and it was insane. Luckily I had a server named Shadai, interesting name I must say. The service was amazing though. I would come to the holiday Inn just for breakfast for that kind of service again every day of the week.

Upon checking in, two hours early, I was greeted warmly by Tamara. Indicating to her that I wad suffering from a severe migraine headache, she made certain to provide me with a room on the top floor, away from the noise of the streets and elevators.

Our server Ashley is great! Always really attentive to what we need. She always gives us service with a smile. As soon as she was hired, there was a dramatic upgrade in the service! The hotel is clean and really quiet. Very receptive to military.

We stopped at this Holiday Inn as a halfway point between Orlando and central PA.
