Very disappointed in the quality & amenities of this hotel. This has been the worst stay I have ever experienced for a Holiday Inn. The $10 charge for parking is bad enough, but the attendant is one of the rudest people I have met in my 1 week stay here. Then to be charged a $7 a day fee for...

Hotel was nice. Room clean. Was disappointed that there was a fee for parking at the hotel though and the pet policy seemed high. 50$ for a small dog and I had my own crate. My dog was almost attacked by 2 large aggressive dogs getting off the elevator with their owners. It caused a little bit of a scene...

Clean, friendly staff, nice bed and pillows. Enjoyed the pool and restaurant. Close to convention center and market street attractions. Parking garage is attached to motel. Right off I-40. The back of the hotel faces a park complete with benches, tables and a splash pad.

It was easy to find the hotel with easy parking, really friendly man check-in, nice comfortable room although the decor is a little dated. Great location too, easy to walk downtown for food or sightseeing and right next to the Sunsphere. I would recommend it.

Staying here was a good decision in choosing among the hotels in the area. The staff was friendly and the facility was clean. They also have a good breakfast buffet, which included omelette made to order. We were very satisfied with our stay.

We were visiting for granddaughter's graduation (last at this place her freshman year) and it's a perfect location and offers shuttle service within 2-3 miles.
