Guest Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 141 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good location with questionable parking Location is Great! Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was nice except for intermittent hot water in shower. Parking is questionable at best. Very narrow parking spaces, poor lighting, and a variety of people walking around peering at cars in the parking area at night. September 15, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Good Staff - Bad Facility The staff was very good, professional and provided excellent service. Holiday Inn by definition indicates a hotel with restaurant. There is no restaurant. There is a pizza place and a used book store where there was once a restaurant. The Holiday Inn apologizes for the lack of a restaurant by providing bagels, cereal and muffins at no charge. The apology says the restaurant is under renovation and may take several months. Really? The pizza place is new. The book store is still in business. The shower hot water is in question. It fluctuates between ice cold and scalding hot. The tub drain is very slow with a back up of several inches during a moderately long shower. Calling the WiFi slow would be giving it quite a compliment. Arriving at the Holiday Inn past 9 PM would present a parking challenge. I parked in one of the last three spaces at 9:05 one night. There are too many other options available in the area to subject yourself to this kind of facility. September 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good to go Great location for university functions. Most excellent staff. Comfortable room. September 15, 2014
