Nice stay. Hotel is currently having some renovations done so there is a noticeable smell of paint when entering the building. Didn't notice it once in my room. The pool was closed down for upgrades too. The water features in the atrium were not working due to the construction as well. During the day there was the noise of hammering,...

slocam - Thank you for taking time to share your experience. We appreciate your comments. We have, since your stay, replaced all of our beds in the entire hotel with brand new mattresses.

Stayed for week long conference. Very nice hotel with staff that really cater to conferences. Only problem was that pool and work out area closed for renovation. Beautiful interior of hotel. Conference center very nice as well. During a large conference can be a little noisy but was not a problem.

The hotel is being renovated, but minimal impact to my stay. Very friendly front desk staff. Room was newly renovated and large. The room contained a desk, couch, coffee table, nice t.v./drawers and comfortable king size bed. The bed was very comfortable with more than enough pillows. There was no fridge or microwave. There was an in room coffee maker....

This is a very nice hotel, though it is going through a remodel. The staff was very courteous. Breakfast is not included in the price of the room. We ordered breakfast from room service and it was delicious. The pool was not open, much to little guy's dismay. They offered the opportunity to go to a hotel across the street...

I walked in and felt the casual elegant ambience. True, there was some renovation, but what was most important was the care and service. My husband and I arrived at night after a 10 hour drive from the Shenandoah Valley of VA through sun, mostly rain and windy conditions crossing WVA mts. I was more than road weary. My husband,...

Nice place, but it is under renovation, so be prepared to see open doors with construction stuff inside. While we were there it was quiet. Basically, It's what you would expect from a Holiday in. The Staff were friendly and in service.

We were coming home from Ohio on our way to Tennessee and needed to stop for the night. Most hotels were booked and felt lucky to get a room here. They were renovating, which was not a problem, but the hotel was way overpriced in comparison to where we had stayed the night before. The room smelled clean and beds...

Very friendly staff and lovely lobby with waterfalls. Bedroom large, comfortable and up to date, but bathroom quite shabby and missing a towel bar.

We loved this Holiday Inn until this visit. When we arrived, we found out that it is under construction. The pool is closed.
