The room was clean and the front desk staff friendly. BEWARE booking rooms through 'GETAROOM.com.' They lead you to believe you are calling the Holiday Inn's (or respective hotel's) front desk. I ended up paying $20 MORE PER NIGHT than the hotels regular rate! Trying to resolve this issue after receiving my credit card statement resulted in being directed to...

The Staff and hotel were great. The hotel was very busy and completely booked but you never heard any noise. It rain very heavy the last night and I never heard a sound. The breakfast staff continued to ask if we needed anything and if the food tasted good.

Hotel had quick elevators. Located off main road with plenty of parking yet quiet. Although I did not utilize, the indoor pool area looks like it belonged in Europe. Wall lined with wood looked very nice! Staff was friendly and helpful. I had late checkout which worked out well. Comfortable beds, HVAC worked well as did the internet. Up to...

The rooms are very clean, the staff were great the breakfast is very basic. The doors to the room need sealing around them the noise from the hall is loud and the gap is so wide that the noise and light stream in. The doors also bang constantly and loudly. Otherwise it was great place to stay bed was comfy.

This hotel is nice and clean. The room was spacious and the beds were comfortable. There wasn't a great selection for breakfast, but what was there was good. It is conveniently located just off Hwy 24 and right next to BW3s. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.

“This motel is set back from the highway and is a good distance away from other buildings. There is no "bad" side to this motel. All rooms will be equally quiet. Elevator and Ice in center of building. Stairways on each end for fast exit in emergencies.”
