Clean updated rooms. Really yummy breakfast. But mattresses not comfortable. Highway noise an issue. Still, a good deal for the price. And they allow dogs. Huge. Some grassy areas for dogs. Close to downtown but not walking distance.

Basically, this is a Holiday Inn, which means you know what you are getting, which is a good thing. Nothing fancy, but perfectly fine while on a road trip. The only issue we had was finding parking in the evening - the hotel and its parking lot were very full both nights we were there.

There are times when a positive factor can turn into a major negative element.

The hotel itself is ok. The room was clean and the staff are friendly. We ordered room service, two house salads, which were fresh, but overpriced. In the early morning it was loud. Not sure if it was housekeeping or maintenance. The air conditioner did not cool the room as much as we would have liked and the refrigerator hummed... More

It has been renovated and is as nice as any 5 star hotel I have stayed in. King sized bed room was wonderful. Big bathroom, plenty of light, big shower, refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee. The room was also large and included a long sofa that made a bed. Bed was very comfortable and linens were great. ,
