Check in was great...they allowed us to park our car in the handicapped zone to check in before taking our rental car back to airport. Parking onsite is $20. which we didn't expect and parking is tight in the street level lot altho there is parking underneath. The room was great; sorry we didn't have time to enjoy breakfast as our flight was so early. We were frustrated with the pick up at the airport. We were specifically told to watch for a white van with green/blue markings and it never came till we called a second time. Then it turned out that a WHITE van had been there!!! BUT no markings to identify it and the driver didn't ask if anyone waiting needed to go to the Holiday Inn. So, we wasted 40 minutes of a great daylight time sitting there waiting...wasn't happy with that.

You have to pay for parking - $20 per day. This is not advertised. The parking garage faces I-5 and traps the noise from it. I think OSHA would take issue with the dB of the noise level.
