We were very disappointed to wake up from our hotel stay and find that our large cargo bag that was securely strapped to the back of the car was stolen. When we reported the incident to the front desk we were immediately informed there is nothing they can do and they don't have security cameras. There was no concern for...

As with all holiday in express hotels this one is as expected and why are typically pick Holiday Inn when traveling. It doesn't hurt that it's attached to the casino so after a few adult beverages you can walk back to your room.

This hotel doesn't disappoint but was I surprised when I checked in and the front desk person told me they had new mattresses in the rooms. When I got to my room, not only are those mattresses comfortable, there was a new desk chair.

We stayed here for a short overnight sleep. When we got there our room had been upgraded but we needed two queens and only had a king in the upgrade. The night manager immediately changed our room and was very helpful with a few extra requests. Thank you for a great quick stay!

This property is a little out the way, as in, make a few turns to get there. The parking lot is in need of repair, and entering and exiting is a bit limited, but overall its well worth it Staff were all very professional, nice, and just all around fun. The property is located near Bass Pro, Horseshoe Cassino, Quaker...

My husband and I stopped at this Holiday Inn on 1 October 2016 on our way to Wyoming. We asked if we could park our truck and trailer out front, as we have done at several other Holiday Inns, but were told specifically by the desk clerk to park at the other end of the hotel which was on the...

Bed was comfortable, room clean. I did love the huge shower, not a tub/shower combination. Breakfast was good and the staff kept it clean and well stocked during the morning rush. The only thing I didn't like is that you could hear everything happening in the hallway and when you were in the hall, you could hear in other rooms....

Well groomed and maintained hotel near restaurants, entertainment, and two major highways. Safe and well lit for walking to and from places. Only drawback is that they don't allow pets. Plenty of walking opportunities and safe for pet walkers, too. Too bad we can't stop when traveling with our dog.
