The check in when went fine we stayed two days at the hotel. We came back on the second day expecting the room to be cleaned and new towels etc it was not. The wife went down and got some new towels to replace the wet ones we had at the room, she asked why they had not cleaned the room was informed that because of covid that they only clean before and after your stay. Later she went back down again to get some coffee (didn’t have any) and some toilet paper. Talk to a different person was informed that we were not put on the list because we were supposed to be told to ask to be cleaned and that the people that checked us in to were to informed us, I don't know that's the stories were right. The room was OK the bathroom had a tile broken that needed replacing and the cove molding was come off some had been nailed back up. The pool and hot tub were Ok for there age, the breakfast was very good.

Very nice updated property and spacious rooms. They had lots of sanitizing stations placed around the lobby. The breakfast was great. They had an employee assigned in a separate room to put the food in individual covered containers for breakfast, eliminating self serve. Much appreciated. They outlined their procedures for room cleanings if necessary. We were met by a very friendly man at the front desk Check-in.

Checking in was great, the night person at the desk was FANTASTIC! The room was nice until.....I seen 4 lady bugs two flying and two on the floor. After I got rid of them I went to sleep. I woke the next morning there were at least 10-15 on the walls, ceiling, bathroom and flying around . When I checked out, the day manager was very uncaring and rude. I even showed her pictures she just said "Sorry about that and thanks for letting us know ..." this is my second stay there in a year and that manager is very rude...she should not be in hospitality.

The breakfast food was not as palatable as other Holiday Inn Express I have stayed in. Foods that were to be hot or warm were cold. Otherwise I would recommend a stay here.

This was an excellent hotel in every way. It was very clean, modern, had a beautiful pool area, and the best breakfast we have probably ever had at a hotel. Staff was very nice and helpful. Definitely one the best hotels we've ever stayed at.
