I really like this Holiday Inn, they were very accomodating and the hotel room was nice. I stayed in a King Suite. It was $189 because it was on Friday so the price was higher. The bed was great and firm which is the way I like it. You have the ability to rent movies there but they are expensive....

Clean comfortable rooms with attentive staff. Booked a double queen suite with two small children. Well maintained and nicely decorated. Kelly at the front desk was very nice and helpful as we're the other staff members! Thanks for a great overnight stay.
