Reviewed 9 August 2017

We stayed there for one night. No complaints at all. The hotel is very clean and well run. The room was very spacious. Breakfast is included and it was really good. Hot and cold options. The pool is really nice. It's small (typical hotel size) but warm and clean. Our son enjoyed swimming there. If you are staying there, have dinner next door at Delmonico's. Great option and you don't need your car.

Although the staff was polite and the hotel clean, the website stated:
Eat & Drink
Free Hot Breakfast served every morning with hot cinnamon buns, make your own pancakes, eggs, bacon, fruit, and more. Fresh coffee is put out 24 hours a day, and snacks are brought out for an evening reception every evening.
Full Breakfast Included

Breakfast Buffet Included

Continental Breakfast Included

Complimentary Coffee in Lobby

Off-site Restaurant Delivery Available

All of the above was true except there was no evening reception and when we asked the hotel staff they had ever heard of any such thing at the hotel and offered no assistance or even to check with a main office.

Although not a matter of great importance, it seemed uncharacteristically rude not to offer an explanation or at least a follow through on the issue. I have stayed at other Holiday Inns and the service is always above and beyond. This was a disappointment.

Last weekend I left my iPad in my room. I called the hotel and spoke w/ Lisa Learnard. She was generous with her time, coordinating a FedEX pickup and packing of the iPad. Terrific experience! Thanks!

Room Tip: I've stayed on all floors. First the best.

My wife and I stayed here for the night while on a road trip, and the hotel was very nice. The room was very clean and new and everything was great. The check-in at the front desk was very quick and the gal was more than polite and helpful. The folks that worked there were very nice and were quick to ask if we needed anything. When in the area we will stay there again without doubt.

Room Tip: The top floor is nice and quiet.

Staff very friendly and welcoming. Hotel very clean and appears recently updated. Rooms very clean. Some noise from floor above. Not the fault of the hotel though. Note to self. Request higher floors to avoid that. Safe location off the highway however not much around the hotel for restaurants. Pool very clean. Breakfast good what you would expect at a HIE. Close to highway so easy to get to and back on the road again. Would certainly stop here again when traveling. Good wifi coverage.

Room Tip: Request top floor
