Guest Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 364 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service Great time. Kids loved the waterpark! The breakfast was great. Very friendly staff. April 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just average for a Holiday Inn The room was ok, but could have been vacuumed better after the previous guest. The television didn't work and neither did the automated wake up call. The television didn't mean that much to me as I arrived at the hotel after 8 PM, but the wake up call not working could have been an issue for me traveling on business. The staff when I checked in was really great, but one of the morning staff at the desk was very terse--almost rude--when I brought to their attention the television and the wake up service not working that next morning. I was merely pointing the issues out to prevent a problem for the hotel and whomever might stay in the room next, and I was VERY polite when I brought it to their attention. I didn't expect the young lady to be so short with me about it. April 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Outdated and Overpriced This hotel was disgusting. The rooms are NOT worth what they are charging. Everything was probably brand new...in the early 2000's. But it is in terrible shape now. I would not recommend staying here. April 20, 2016
