We stayed at this hotel during a baseball tournament in town. Think they were 13 families there with 14 or 15 year old boys. All the families had an enjoyable experience. Rooms were spacious, clean, very comfortable beds and top-notch linens. The hotels close to everything you need and the staff was very helpful as well. It takes excellent customer... More

We stayed at this Holiday Inn while my son was participating in a local baseball tournament, and I found it to be a nice, quiet hotel. We chose it for the water park, and it was obviously a good choice for a group of 12-13 year old boys. I only peeked into the water park, but it had a slide... More

Nothing exciting to report here. The ironic thing is the front page of the free newspaper had an article discussing the recent close of the waterpark due to illness. One reason why I abhor indoor parks. I was here on business so the closure caused no inconvenience. I categorize this hotel as more of an industrial versus homey experience. Staff... More
