    Close to Freeway

    When I pulled up, staff was outside lobby smoking. One of them asked what I needed. I did not know they worked for Holiday Inn.

    Nothing

    PULL OUT BED WAS TERRIBLE. SPRINGS POKING THROUGH THE MATTRESS. SHOWER DIDN'T WORK PROPERLY, AND WHEN YOU DID GET THE SHOWER TO WORK THE TUB DIDN'T DRAIN. VERY POOR MAINTENANCE. NEVER AGAIN

  • 7.4

    Breakfast was good. The door separating the parent;s room from the kid's room was a savior!

    The couch bed was very uncomfortable.

    Heard a lot of noise from other rooms. My first room had a leak in ceiling and I had to report it twice and then had to move to another room and that one was a corner room and could here the people in the adjoining room. There were other leaks in the hotel.

  • 8.2

    I liked it for a king room

    I didn't like paying for a Executive King Room and rate, when I received a king room only.......

  • 5.8

    The beds were very comfortable and the hotel lobby was beautiful and the food was good and the pool was nice the the front desk workers were very nice

    I chose this hotel because of the jacuzzi but it was broke wish that was listed on the site when I was reading about it. There are no refrigerator or microwaves in the rooms so the food I got at the restaurant I couldn't eat it later because of it. I couldn't sleep in because housekeeping started vacuuming! And the elevators weren't working well had to wait every time and had to keep pushing the button

  • 7.4

    Room had been upgraded, and it was nice and clean

    Elevator carpet smelled. Why carpet the elevator? No breakfast service for $169+tax, are you kidding me ? Pool was not heated, and extremely cold.
