Not the face of IHG


May 22, 2023


I’m sorry to report that this hotel is not the face of IHG I’m used to. I have been a member a long time platinum at that and when I arrived at this hotel it was so run down I thought I was in the wrong place. The fact I paid what I did to stay here was way to much. The front desk clerk horrible did not greet, nor speak a word for that matter, when he did speak he was very short. Not a welcoming feeling at all and to boot was answering and talking on the phone to another customer while trying to help me at the same time instead of placing them on hold.

The parking lot and surrounding area of the grounds had trash everywhere, grass looked like it had never been cut, over grown weeds in flower beds and mud all up the stair carpets leading to my room.

Upon entering the room blocks on the windows you could not raise them but about 2 inches, holes in the wall, microwave pulled off the wall with a hole, drawers in kitchen wouldn’t close and they tried to take tape and tape them close that didn’t hold, bed sheets and comforter had little lint balls all over it, light bulbs in lamps didn’t work, toilet paper holder in the bathroom ripped off the wall, dirt and marks all over the door and walls in the room and the toilet when you flushed it made the most horrible noise for 45 seconds after each flush. I have pictures of everything.

I was very saddened by the quality of this property especially with it being and IHG. I have contacted IHG and have requested a refund for this stay it was just that bad. I hope this review gets closely looked at and someone takes action. It will definitely make me look closer at IHG in the future for my future travels.

Surprised in a Good Way


April 28, 2023

This location is ideal if using the airport. Lots of amenities are located nearby. I was pleasantly surprised to find a newer room with ideal "suite" conditions. The Owner was helpful and the limited staff was polite and gracious. I was very comfortable and will stay at this chain more often. Nicer than the average IHG Express and for a great price.
