I travel a lot for work so I am in hotels 2-3 times a week. This property was decent, but does not seem to be upgraded lately. The hotel bedroom seemed a little dated with older carpeting and curtains, but the bathroom seems like it has been updated within the last year. Limited electric outlets (only 1 in bathroom) and no USB ports. Has a restaurant with good drink prices, but typical bar food. Checking in process took longer than normal here.

Hello MarciMJ, I appreciate you taking the time to share your review of your recent visit. I am happy you liked our restaurant and the drinks offered. I am sorry to hear you did not have a good stay due to the slow check-in process, the room's condition, and the limited electrical outlets. Your comments will not go unnoticed as I have shared them with our management team. I'm confident that measures will be in place for improvements to deliver complete guest satisfaction. I hope you give us another chance to win you back! Best Regards, Dianne L. Case Manager IHGService

This place has signs all over the interior and exterior talking about how clean and safe it is. Okay, then why did both housekeepers cleaning our 4th floor when we walked in not have masks on? They didn’t even possess masks, so it’s not like they forgot to pull them up. My wife made a comment to one of them and was ignored. We then told the lady at the front desk and she replied, “Oh, I’m not sure what the policy is for housekeeping and masks. They may not have to wear them.” It’s a state mandate. Even if it weren’t, housekeepers should not be cleaning rooms without them. The whole place is very dated, run down, and should be skipped. I’m saying this as an Elite Holiday Inn member.

Hi Lateshow9, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for posting a candid review. I was very concerned to read your comments about our housekeeping staff not wearing masks as well as with the condition of our property. 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. Thank you for being a member of our IHG Rewards Club, and I still hope you would give us another chance in the future. Mike F. Case Manager IHGService

This is a solid hotel for it’s price point. The rooms are near and clean, the property, a little worn but well kept. The staff is the biggest plus here. It was a very busy weekend for them and they kept smiles on their faces and held positive attitudes throughout!

We rolled into this location at nearly 2am and were met quickly by a pleasant lady (Bridget). Bridget is an outstanding example for the staff at this location, she was personable, outgoing & went above & beyond to accommodate two weary travelers. Our room was on the 4th floor and the bedding was very comfortable & the pillows were great. We slept in without any outside disruption or noises. The bathroom in the the room was well appointed, however it’s lighting was a bit dim for my taste. Also one thing I prefer for a bathroom is its own ventilation fan which wasn’t the case for this room. Regardless, our stay was great and the staff were also. Highly recommend this location!

The place is clean and friendly. I wouldn’t recommend adding breakfast for a buck if going with a family. We received a $20 voucher max per room ( for 2 people and we had four). Most meals were $9.95. Maybe I misunderstood. They took off the top two meals and we paid $15 for my other two daughters’ meals.
