Guest Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 194 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff makes up for high rates Rates during the week (even with corporate rate) are high. The staff here at this location are wonderful and remember our group whenever we stay- the employees here are what keep us coming back! More options needed with the HVACs in the rooms. My room was very warm upon check in, and I was not able to get it cooled down because the outside temperature was too low to allow the AC to run. No option to just have the unit pull air from outside and run continuously (at least not that the front desk and I could find). The hotel was under construction during my stay so the pool and hot tub were not available for use. Construction noise was limited to 9-5pm (thank you!) April 18, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Weak for a Holiday Inn. AC unit not adjustable (limiters in place), pool closed, had to leave on EST breakfast too late, poor variety of pillows, room was outside ice unit - noisy. April 15, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by requested room not available on arrival between staff and friends, I was able to get to a smoking room , that I booked many months in advance. management decision to make entire hotel non smoking should be changed. Make the 1st floor smoking, to show you care about all all your long time customers. April 13, 2016
