Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ronsterman Big room, bad lighting.
While it's a good value and we had a very large room, the available lights were downright stingy. Only one night table with one dim lamp between the two beds (I guess Holiday Inn guests don't read). No light over the sitting area near the big window, even though there was a sofa there. No light to see what's in the closet. Had to turn on the bathroom light and hope some of it illuminated the closet.
Next time I'll bring a couple of my own lamps.
The included buffet breakfast was ample and good.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jfskldjf OK but Wifi an issue
Overall, my one night stay was ok. The staff could use some better customer service training. For example, a couple who checked in before us was offered complimentary water without asking. Regrettably, they did not do the same for us. The staff could have done a better job greeting us at check-in but that people-first focus wasn't there. It appeared as if they were just doing their job.
The wifi is a significant issue at this Holiday Inn. It didn't work with any of my Apple devices, including my ipad or my Mac. While I am glad it was complimentary, I wasn't able to take advantage of it because of technical issues. One of their staff (who spent 20 minutes in my room trying to address the problem) told me they always had issues with Macs so the wifi system should be evaluated, if not overhauled. If not addressed, this will probably be my last stay there.
