We were down from Ohio to view some homes in the area. We were very pleasantly surprised that this hotel had a free shuttle that will take you downtown for dinner. And pick you up and bring you back. Downtown is amazing and this shuttle so made it worth staying here. We also

Room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Disappointed that our preferred bed type was not available despite booking 3 weeks in advance. Over priced breakfast for the choices provided and only lukewarm water for shower in the morning. Will stay somewhere else next time.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. Please allow me to extend my apologies that your preferred room type was not available, and for the lukewarm water. We did recently have a plumbing issue which caused the lukewarm water-- we had addressed the issue as immediately as possible and got hot water back to the building within 12 hours. Please know that this is not the norm at our hotel, but rather an unfortunate exception. As far as receiving the correct room type, we make every effort to ensure there are no conflicts with this, however rarely there may be instances where rooms unexpectedly become unavailable, such as having unplanned maintenance required or having another guest not check out on schedule. These instances are rare, but do happen, and we are understanding of the frustrations this may have caused. I am glad to hear though that your room was clean and comfortable, and we hope that we may have another opportunity to host you again in the future. - Sara L. General Manager

Excellent location with an Excellent restaurant called Entrees. I had the jerk Alfredo chicken and was the best I've ever had. Would highly recommend this restaurant. My husband & I will definitely be back.

Spent 2 nights at this Hotel in early December using IHG points. Was given a very nice room on the top floor with an insanely comfortable bed and pillows. Room was clean. Shower pressure was lacking. Would stay here again since it's only about a 15-20 minute walk to downtown.

This is a full service hotel with a restaurant. There is no included breakfast. There is, however, a Dunkin Donuts in the parking lot.

I am planning a trip for my brother who doesn't drive. He believes that he stayed at Holiday Inn a couple of years ago. Just trying to see if this is it. He said he able to walk to a mall and that there was a McDonalds quite near as well. Just want to make sure he is able to walk to things. He loves to walk so no issue there

When I was there in January the restaurant did not appear to be open though they had an adequate "Cheap Motel Breakfast Buffet" with scrambled eggs and such in the morning. There are many fast food locations along the street where the hotel is, but not easy walking distance. Don't forget to inquire about them not cleaning my room and the desk and manager saying I was to have put out the "Clean My Room" sign,if we wanted it done, unheard of in about 1000 hotel stays by me. The place is not bad otherwise, though in a kind of shady part of town.
