I liked that I was left alone and did not have to put up with a cleaning during my stay

My family and I stayed on Saturday night and everything was great. The one thing about hotels that turns me off is the smell of the lobby and rooms especially. There were no weird smells here. The area was in a great location to a variety of food. Kayla was quick at checking us in. My only thing was the pool was super cold but that did not bother my child who loves the water.

Breakfast was amazing

The floors were just disgustingly filthy upon entering the room! Sticky candy pieces, crumbs everywhere, fingernails and toenails, it was absolutely sickening!

This hotel is mostly up to the standards of HI Express -- rooms are quiet, clean, and comfortable, and the breakfast is pretty good, but there are a couple small problems. In the evenings the lobby has an almost unbearably strong smell of chlorine that drifts in from the pool room. The smell in the pool room is completely overwhelming, and so unusable for us. They should add some ventilation. There are also a few things in disrepair. And there were a few non-critical things that were dirty -- nothing that physically affected us, but just slightly lowered our opinion of the hotel. For instance, if you sit in the breakfast area and look up, you'll see lots of dead moths and bugs in the lighting fixtures. Lastly, while the breakfast was fine, there is not nearly enough seating for the weekend crowds.

Convenient Area close to shopping and friendly staff

I loved everythijg about my stay was perfect. I have stayed at Holiday Inn before

Liked everything. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Would go again.

Location was perfect for my needs. Continental breakfast was great.

Enjoyed the stay, close to shopping and food; clean rooms; good breakfast; accessible staff to address any concerns

The location is good, but that is probably the only good thing about this place. The bathroom had mold around the sink and the tub. The worst part? The urgency the staff had to kick me out exactly at 11 AM. The housekeeper started knocking on the door exactly at 11 and when I told her I was taking just a few more minutes to finish packing she left and less than a minute later the front desk staff was calling to let me know I needed to vacate the room as it was past 11 (yes, it was a whole 10 minutes past check out time!) Oh, and did I mentioned there are signs posted all over stating IHG member get automatic late checkout (noon) and that I am Gold member? I travel a lot and never had this happen, very unique to this hotel :(
