I stayed in a recently renovated room at this Holiday Inn, and while I appreciate the effort to modernize and update a hotel that's almost as old as I am - I'm a native of the area and remember it
opening - there are some parts of the renovation that were just not practical. First though, let me say I am a huge fan of all the additional and easily accessible charging ports and electrical outlets; that was a huge plus for two adults with too many gadgets plus medical equipment, we were able to have everything plugged in at the same time if needed! Also the staff at this hotel is very personable and professional, and I just adore one of the servers in the Falls restaurant, she has been working there for many years and remembers me each time I visit. Now for the parts of the renovation that just aren't practical, this isn't meant to scare anyone away, just a heads-up that some of the changes can be annoying. The biggest annoyance is that the smoke detector is immediately over the bathroom and since there isn't a real door on the bathroom - just a panel that slides to cover the bathroom entrance or the closet - steam from the shower will set off the smoke detector every single time a person takes a shower. There was a reduction in storage/dresser space which made it challenging for two adults to store all their clothing and essentials for a week long stay. The modern furniture is not comfortable for any length of time and there isn't enough work space for two adults to work at the same time. The toilet paper is on open-ended spindles so there is a good chance that the paper will slide off the spindle and roll across the bathroom floor at the most inopportune time. There were also flaws in the new mirror in the bathroom and chips out of the new woodwork that surprised me that the room was signed off as finished.
Overall, we had a good stay, the facilities are clean, the hotel is safe and yes, we would stay again; it was just a number of minor annoyances that kept this from being anything beyond an average hotel stay. [Less]
