Hotel obviously not well managed. After driving 9 hours we arrived at this hotel at 8:30 pm. Upon arrival, reception was not busy and we were ignored while the two people behind the desk carried on their own conversation. At check in we never received a greeting, information of our room location, elevator, WiFi, breakfast. We asked for later check out and were given from 11 to 12. The funeral we were attending was not until 3. Breakfast is $12. At $400 a night, breakfast should have been free. I asked for the manager and was told she did not come in until 3. The room was ok, but not $400 a night. The hotel lobby was a mess: screaming kids, dogs and people laying around all over the furniture. Actually, I felt some people there were not paying guest. Not a good atmosphere. This hotel could use some customer service training.

We checked into the wrong hotel that turned into the right hotel. We were at the wrong Holiday Inn but thought this was the one we booked and the one we wanted to stay at. The manager was at the counter and fixed the reservation for me. We were given a beautiful room and this hotel offered all the services we wanted. It was very impressive. Clean room, comfortable bed, plenty of parking and good location.. this hotel has it all and does it with a smile.

The hotel was clean, which is always biggest deal for me. Staff checked me in fast and I was in room in no time. Parking was good. If you are looking for a convenient, clean place with friendly staff that you can stay at in the area, this is a great option. Only issue is they ned to start bringing back normal breakfasts already and stop feeding into the hysteria. It only caters to people liek the person below. To the person that is whining about no masks, its not a law, its a mandate. Plus the governor said its not necessary. If you are so concerned about it stay home and don't leave your house until no one ever gets sick. It's over 99% Recovery, you have more chance getting in a car accident down the road. Stay home if you are scared, you have no business in public. Always someone like that who has no life getting off on trying to scold others to try and make themselves feel better. Pitiful

Stayed here twice. Signs everywhere about mandatory masks but very lax staff regarding wearing masks. Dont advertise if you dont follow. And hallway hoise is terrible. Room was nice. Clean but no identifying notes of following any safety cleaning. Wait until things calm down if you want to stay here.

Hi Fishheadfwb, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for posting a candid review. I was very concerned to read your comments about our staff not wearing masks and the noise from the hallway among the others. I understand your dismay, and I am sorry. This is not the joy of travel that we wanted for all our guests. I will make sure to share your comments with our team for the necessary improvements needed on our end. Thanks again, and I still hope you would give us another chance in the future. Mike F. Case Manager IHGService
