This hotel is clean , nice sized rooms. The pool is good also. Buffet was good , the usual buffet for breakfast at a Holiday. The personnel were nice. There isn't much around there, kind of isolated. Free parking is ideal.

Holiday Inn has always been a great place to stay. 4 of us guys stayed on our way to Wine Lake Camp for our Fishing Trip. It's located close to the Walmart and a A&W Root Beer place. Breakfast is served starting at 6:30 am. Great Staff!

typical of a holiday inn express chain. neat and clean. the staff is accommodating, especially when you call ahead. only problem encountered was the driveway/parking lot. very rustic. gathered in the midst of renovating. the room was nice enough. bed was too soft. would not have liked to be so deep in the mattress--no support.
