Stayed here one night while visiting family. Chose this hotel because it was a bit cheaper than Hampton Inn, and the Trip Advisor reviews were pretty close for the two. It was fine...nice staff, clean and pretty comfortable. Wish there had been a little more thought put into room design; for instance, the bedside lamp (mounted on the wall) is...

This is a great holiday inn located in a convenient part of town. It is near the mall and several restaurants. It's only feet from Buffalo Wild Wings. I stayed in two different rooms and both were very clean. The indoor pool was warm which was nice given how cold it was outside. The staff was friendly and helpful. I...

We stopped here on a long road trip east to have an easy in/out overnight. The room was spacious, probably because it was a handicapped room. Donning swim suits we headed for the hotel pool. The pool was okay but the water was a little strange - my son said it felt thick. The whirlpool was not working - just...

Stayed here for two nights. Front desk clerk said the hotel was about 10yrs old, but it seemed like new. Overall pretty clean except some hairs in the shower that weren't ours.

This is a great location, with a grocery store and restaurant nearby. We stayed in a mini-suite, so that totally worked out for us. The staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was typical of what you get anywhere - with the exception of the automatic pancake maker. That was great, and easier to use than the waffle makers...
