OUTSTANDING customer service!

The front desk called our room nightly to ensure that we had everything we needed. I accidentally left my camera charger in the room when I checked out, and the front desk mailed it to me. They really did a TERRIFIC job seeing to our needs!

Work in Progress

Have stayed at this hotel several times when it was a Holiday Inn. It is being renovated. Our room was not upgraded yet so I can't say how the remodeled rooms look. They said the work should be completed by the end of winter. I don't think so. Staff was pleasant but not very helpful explaining wireless internet connection procedures. They did let me use their computer to download and print Southwest Airline boarding passes. I have mixed feelings about this hotel. Compared to others in the area, they're not bad. BUT, there is not much to compare to since the other hotels are 1 & 2 star. My wife and I are returning next fall for her HS reunion. I might try B&B's.

Traveler Beware!

I have stayed at several hotels in the area over tha last couple years, and compared to other Holiday Inns especially, I was very disappointed. The Internet ad, in my opinion, is deceptive, using an old tactic of quoting low room rates and then adding on for spouses. Every HI in the area quotes for 2 adults, except this one. Look under Amenities/SPA and you will see whirlpool listed. Nope! Gotta rent a whirlpool suite! The small indoor pool had a powerfull fan that kicked on every 55 seconds, removing warm air and drawing in outside air (at 20F). The complimentary hot breakfast has no hot food (They said they are looking into getting some, but charge us for it now!) When you arrive, you have to force yourself and luggage through two sets of heavy doors (don't want to waste money on automatic ones!) and forget about any help from the staff, they just watched when I ran to the aid a petite woman strugling to push the luggage cart through the doors! The lobby is sterile, devoid of any life. No carpet here, just tiles, so watch your step if it's raining out. We rented a suite supposedly for up to 5 people, except there is only 3 small drawers for clothes. It's new, so everything is still shiney, but based on the corner cutting and scimping I expect this to drop in ratings over the next few years. Best I could give them is 3* out of 5, and only because it's new. The other Holiday Inns give better value for the dollar and go out of their way to keep customers coming back. There's a reason this place has vacancies on holiday weekends!
