There were no rooms available in the Downtown/University area so we had to stay here. It has a nice entrance, fireplace, restaurant and bar downstairs. The room was basic and clean. It backs up to the road and the elevator is noisy, so if you have trouble sleeping, be forewarned! Good/ safe location to drive to Monticello, but if you...

Dear April N, Thank you for your candid review. The short drive to Monticello is definitely a plus. We apologize that your recent stay did not meet your expectations due to the noisy elevator. We do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future, so that we can provide a better experience. Sincerely Cheryl Hill

I recently stayed just one night here but I was quite impressed. I think this hotel has been here a while, and I was expecting to see signs of wear and tear, but that was not the case at all. My room was large, fresh and modern, with a very comfortable bed and bedding. There was a small sectional in...

It's pretty good. The staff was fine. The room was clean. Not the hotels fault but some moronic guests don't know that slamming doors at 6:00 in the morning is not a delightful sound. The heat and hot water worked. That's always a plus. Its location was convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. This place was still good enough...

Dear C Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel on TripAdvisor. We are delighted that you found our property to be conveniently located. Unfortunately we don't have the same complimentary breakfast as offered by the Holiday Inn Express, but we do understand that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Hopefully you were able to...

Clean, updated hotel. Our first room shared a wall with the elevator. The front desk moved us to a different, quieter room without hesitation. However, we still heard highway noise overnight. A minimal inconvenience during an overall wonderful stay. The coffee in the lobby each morning was appreciated. The bar was consistently well-staffed with happy, efficient, friendly bartenders each night....

This hotel was very clean and hospitable. We had a large room and we loved the huge shower. The bed was very comfortable and all of the staff was very polite. Our only complaint was highway noise, but if it's convenient to the highwy, you get the noise.

Dear ewteach1, Thank you for the five star rating of our hotel on TripAdvisor! We are happy to hear that you had an excellent stay due to our friendly staff, clean hotel, and comfortable hotels rooms. Unfortunately the downside to having easy on and off access to the highway is that we sometimes have the traffic noise. Should you travel...

My husband, 3 month old baby, and I stayed here, and did not have a good experience. When we did not have hot water, we were told to let it run 15-20 minutes as it "takes a while" due to plumbing issues as we were on the fourth floor. The higher the floor the longer it takes to get hot...

We stayed one night and our room was on the top floor (6th) facing the back of the hotel, odd numbered room. We listened to traffic all night long. Had to turn the fan on high to drown out the traffic noise. The walls are thin and you can hear everything with adjoining rooms on both sides of us not...

It is what you would expect from a holiday Inn with clean rooms but one thing that I absolutely hate is the sliding bathroom doors that are frosted glass. Not only do they not filter sound but if your sharing a room with someone who likes to poop consistent in the middle of the night then they might as well...

Appreciate the modern style with less carpet. Microwave and bar fridge in room was helpful. Very low pet fee of $20 compared to other chains charging up to $100.

We arrived here after a long day of driving. No reservation, no problem. We asked for two rooms adjoining and the front desk staff helped to get us the best rate for our family of 6.
