Reviewed yesterday NEW

When choosing a hotel near the Riverwalk, we tried to balance walking distance versus price. We should have spent more. Or walked more. We chose this one because it was on the cheaper side with a bit of a walk AND it has history. *(The whole old prison thing. Which was a let down in itself. Our rooms' prison bars...

This was the worse Holiday Inn Express we have ever stayed in and we pride ourselves in staying at Holiday Inn Express. The area was awful, only NEAR the riverwalk, we still had to drive and PAY for parking plus we had to pay $15 a day for parking at the hotel because there was NO parking even near the...

The United States Flag that is flying above the entrance is in tatters. Truly a disgrace. Similar inattention to detail and a general lack of care can be found throughout , including housekeeping. If you stay I would advise you do not walk through the area at night. Take a cab or uber.

everything met my expectations. the one thing i was not expecting was that this hotel is a former jail. I booked directly through holiday inn's website and missed the part where it's described as a renovated jail. the guest checking in in front of me was excited about this and was telling me all about the ghost stories he'd read,...

The rooms were okay, but if it were my choice I would not have stayed here. This is probably a two star hotel. The best thing about this hotel is the staff is friendly and the breakfast was okay.
