This hotel was the former Quality Inn, for which I have stayed several times at. I believe my last review of the hotel when it was the former QI, I had commented that it was tired.... it appears it has changed hands and is now a Holiday Inn.. so I gave it a try, and I must say I'm very...

The whole hotel has been completely redone and it is clean and modern. The beds were super comfy! I loved the stand up shower in our...

Thank you so much MPE1444 for your review! It is great to hear that you enjoyed our hotel. Typically when we have a life guard working the slide is open a little later, I'm happy to hear it didn't bother your visit. We look forward to having you stay again. Regards, Kathy

Comfy, good sleep, a bit of breakfast...What else can you ask for? The rooms look recently renovated, we stayed for 3 days and there were no noise issues, the shower worked and the breakfast was decent. Solid place to lay your head for a few days!

If you haven't been to Bedford for a while, this may be confusing. What WAS the Holiday Inn is now a different brand of hotel. What is NOW the Holiday Inn is across the street, and it too used to be a different brand. Regardless, the "new" Holiday Inn suited my needs very well. Room included a bar refrigerator and...

This Hotel is the site of the former Quality Inn and it was completely renovated from top to bottom. I stay at many Holiday Inn's but have to admit this is by far one of the nicest I've ever seen.
