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.

Super easy check in. Clean and I was given a room near the elevator just by the manager looking at my crutches. Everything else was a non issue because it’s the little stuff that matters.

Linen were dirty. Seen hair on the sheets

Reserved king bed and got two queen beds then I was told that I reserved two queens and I showed my reservation paper. They were like umm we don't have any king bed. Found hairs on the bed probably from previous guest. It took them a long time to come and change the sheet. Room was small for the prize. I stayed at other hotel once with half the prize I paid here and the room size is the same.
