This hotel was very clean and most of the workers were very nice. I was there for a conference on a Friday/Saturday and the hotel was completely full with people being turned away. There was a visiting college football team there and they were definitely everywhere. The good about the hotel is the location and it was very clean. There...

We have stayed at the Holiday Inn on two occasions, the most recent this past weekend. The hotel is clean, comfortable and with I would say average service and accommodations. One elevator was broken while we were there and the other was having problems keeping up.... but hopefully this is just temporary. They have a great place to visit in...

This is a nice clean hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. This is a Holiday Inn not an Express, so there is an on site restaurant, no free breakfast.

This is a top quality hotel. The rooms are very clean, updated and spacious. I had a king jacuzzi suite for a 5 night stay for a conference and it was excellent.
