Holiday Inn is trying. Our room was clean, the bedding was nice and modern. The bathroom had some nice vanity sink soap. The breakfast area was small but nice (loved the eggbeaters cheese omelet) with a variety of seating options. But the property can't rise above some basic limitations: one cramped elevator to serve three floors, old air compressors that make noise when they switch off, and a feeling that this is basic lodging. I don't want to ding the place too much. Staff was nice.

Clean rooms, super comfy beds, super friendly desk clerks, excellent maintenance crew ready to fix anything in your room, breakfast lady Sandra is super attentive and friendly. She does a good job sanitizing all surfaces frequently. We enjoyed talking to her every morning. We definitely recommend staying here if you have business or vacation.

We were tired after flying into Orlando and then driving over to the west coast area. Had issues with a BW hotel down the road over musty smell and condition of hotel...So we were a little upset with no longer having a hotel. Came across this property! The front desk clerk named Sherry was so nice and helpful. Gave her our tale of woe and she went out of her way to help us. Our room was an allergy free room. It had an air purifier, room was quiet and bed was so comfortable! Never stayed in a hotel that had a bathroom with such great lighting. Being an airline employee, We have traveled all over. This hotel was perfect for us....and Sherry was so helpful. Can't say enough good things about this property. Thank you Sherry!

Great stay, we'll be back. Rooms were spacious and the rates were great. Closely located to downtown Inverness and close to an Olive garden or dinner. The facility looks new and the beds were very comfortable.

First time visit to Inverness which is a lovely historic town with many natural outdoor amenities. Was there over a weekend and saw locals as well as many traveling to/through area. Easy to access as right off highway, plenty of parking, and set back off the road so no road noise. Hotel staff very hospitable and helpful. Hotel clean and peaceful. Even with several families there, you could hear a pin drop once it was around 9 pm. It was like being at home. Morning breakfast nicely prepared and presented. I know it's a standard HIE meal but some are better than others, particularly depends on who's in charge of breakfast. So was thankful, food staff were good at what they did. Highly recommend if you are in the area.
