I stayed here twice, and had excellent customer service both times. The manager and the front desk women Gabby and the others were very helpful. The rooms included a fridge and microwave, which was great to have with the coffee maker. Rooms had a nice balcony. The bathroom counter area is very small, but still functional. The location is very... More

Had a great experience at this hotel. Staff was friendly, room was cool and quite and the pool was nice. I also love the hot breakfast that Holiday Inn's now offer. The bed was also very comfortable and I had a good nights sleep. It was also walking distance to several restaurants for a nice choice or eating.

Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express was comfortable. The balcony off our room was a plus - it was nice to have an extension of the room into outdoor space. We enjoyed mountain views from our room and the balcony. The workout room was satisfactory. The shower products were Bath and Body Works. Our room had both a microwave... More

I arrived very late at night (1 AM the next day). I appreciated that the night person at the desk, Shawn, was awake (polite & friendly!) for both of us and had my key ready in no time.

This was one of the noisiest hotels I've stayed in. Very poor insulation between walls and floors. In their defense I would say that the Prom night guests were not the most considerate guest, the police had to be called one night.
