We came to stay here with the Shriners. I was impressed with the roomy size of our accommodations. The service was average. The grounds are pretty. Neighborhood is a little rough. But all in all it was a nice stay and hotel was comfortable and convenient to the hospital and other places we visited.

After going to Christmas Town in the evening on 12/16/16 we checked in to this hotel, but found our reservations for two adults and two children were at another Holiday Inn. Luckily, there were vacancies and the most accommodating desk clerk helped cancel our other reservations and got us to our suite. Now, I have to say I was a...

Straight up review, the good and the bad Cons- 1) The hotel is very outdated, the floors need updating. The carpets were a dark color, so it was hard to tell if it was truly clean. 2) There was a bug on the floor of our hotel room, it looked like it crawled from underneath the hotel door. The gap...

Our stay was the best! Outstanding customer service from the ultimate professional staff! Our room (suite) was roomy, clean, and exceeded our expectations for such a bargain rate! The entire staff is friendly and accomodating. Even though the hotel had a full house, every Holiday Inn Team member went the extra mile to make every guest feel at home. The...

Have had a great visit at this hotel. Check in staff was kind and efficient, room is clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. It was a very good value for the price. We came here after a negative experience at HI Express nearby and we are really glad we found this place. Would definitely return.

A little disappointed that when we checked in, we notified the front desk that the t.v. was not working. Same thing the next day as well. Thankfully, I saw Miss Audrey at the front desk on the evening of day three. The next day, we had t.v. Any time you want to see the best of customer service, she Miss...

The front desk was friendly and the room more or less clean (hair in the bathroom) but that's the only 2 things I liked in this hotel. The room I had was small, the AC is right in front of the bed. I had doubts about the cleanliness of the pool (the water wasn't clear at all) and the worse...
