              Clean, comfortable, easy to find, great location. Very nice room! Check in/out was a breeze, and friendly staff. Parking was great also. Thank you for a great stay!

            • Family with children
              9.0

              I loved the free parking. I also appreciated the fact that the breakfast was included. Free Wi Fi. New building.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Loved the swimming pool and breakfast. The only thing we didn't like is the air conditioner. We didn't expect the old fashioned design AC in a nice hotel like Holiday Inn. The wind blows too hard even on LOW and it's uncomfortable. My dad complained that it's cold and shut it off. Therefore, his room got very stuffy:( Not sure if we'll come back next year because of that.

            • Family with children
              5.0

              High price low comfort. Breakfast is very little, no buffet, no choice.

            • Family with children
              8.8

              A little pricey as it was almost $700 for 3 nights

            • Couple
              9.2

              There was no mini fridge and the walls didn't seem to be sound proof.

            • Older travelers
              5.0

              The beds were extremely uncomfortable causing both my wife and I to go without any sleep for the night.
