Reviewed 31 August 2014

There was a tray from room service in the hall with uneaten food on it when we cchecked in. We complained to front desk once the first day, twice the second day and when we returned to hotel at 10:00 pm that night it WAS STILL THERE. Finally the front desk had it removed. The sliding doors were all riveted...

In the past they gave HIA Members and frequent clients a drink coupon and breakfast buffet. No longer! They stopped any perks. There are better options in the area! A new 200 room hotel will be opening Spring 2015 , could be a nice alternative.

Dear JohnS34134, thank you so much for taking the time to post this review. Yes, it is unfortunate that IHG chose to take those perks out of their rewards program. However, you are a very valued guest to us and a valued IHG Rewards member and we hope that will keep you coming back to us in the future. Sincerely,...

Stayed while on business in the area. Normal average business hotel, Nice room, good internet, OK food (nothing special), good welcome, plenty of parking, good access to the free way without being on it.

The front desk staff are fantastic. Anything they can do to help, they will. They will do it with a smile on their face. The staff in the Montrose Grill and the staff that handle cleaning public areas do a great job. The housekeeping staff for the rooms needs to be more conscientious or they need a checklist to make...

It was barely acceptable. This is an old building and it's pretty evident. They've tried to upgrade the property somewhat, but my room still had: peeling wallpaper, leaky toilet, shower faucet that didn't work right, and missing light bulbs in all but one lamp. The room seemed clean enough, but one has to wonder how much attention goes into a...

There is absolutely nothing to brag about. The stay was nothing more than just another hotel stay. The parking lot is awkward with not much parking at the front entrance and the back entrance is by the banquet rooms. Anyhow the rooms where pretty standard, pretty clean, not the best in the world but they where okay. Breakfast is not...

Reviewed 17 December 2013

The negatives start with the lobby. The cold air from outside blows right in through the lobby, creating a less than warm environment for the business desk or bar. The room wall heater cycles on and off to such a degree that days later, my sinus' are still dried out. Road noise from Market St is comparable to sleeping in...

Room was ok, but have stayed at other Holiday Inns that had a more welcoming lobby and nicer rooms. Good thing we are members of rewards program otherwise breakfast was NOT included. Even though our room was across the elevator, it was very quiet

My family and I rented 5 seperate rooms in this Holiday Inn location on different floors. The stay itself was pleasent enough, however when we departed after a 2 night stay, we all had little bites around our ankles and legs that appeared shortly after. All the bites appeared in straight lines and were centralized around the ankle region. After...
