Reviewed 29 March 2017

Judging from the other reviews I got lucky with my room. My room had recently been remodeled and was clean but did have a slight musty odor which explains why the thermostat was turned down so low. I liked my room but it was very noisy, I could hear other people talking and I could hear all the traffic on...

Dear valued guest, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. I'm glad to see that your room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast area is still in transition and will have about double its current seating when complete. Rooms are in varying stages of remodel and it sounds like yours may have been at least...

We are platinum elite members and this has to be the worst HIE we have stayed in. The first room they put us in had a water leak hole above the shower. When we called for maintenance the girl acted surprised it was in that shape. It had been like that for a long time. The quality of the renovation...

Dear valued guest, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience. Our goal is to make sure that every stay is a great one and I am very sorry to see that we obviously failed here. The renovation process is coming along but has seen several delays. I understand your frustration at the inconvenience this caused....

Very convenient right next to the hospital. For $150.00 a night this Holiday Inn was pretty run down and dirty. The breakfast was one of the worst ones we had while traveling and ended up eating elsewhere. The chairs in the dining area were cloth, stained and dirty - I don't even want to imagine what the prep area looked...

I am very sorry to see that your experience with us was not what you expected. It is our goal to make every stay great and obviously we dropped the ball here. We are in the process of going through a full renovation which includes updating our breakfast area which we expect to be completed by March 2017. We hope...

This hotel is need of a remodel. The staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean. Complementary breakfast left a lot to be desired. The bathroom was small and the door blocked part of the vanity.

I travel a lot on business and I choose Holiday Inn Express because they are usually a good place to stay. However, this one is not one of those. The facility is not maintained very well. I had brown water most of my stay. Toilette, sink, and shower. I was told that was normal and should clear up as the...

Wow. It looks like we really dropped the ball there. I am sorry you had such an unpleasant experience. The water issue is a city problem that they have been working on for some time now. It generally clears quickly but it is unsightly early in the morning at times and I understand how it can impact your stay. I...

We stayed here during our cross country move from east coast to west coast. It was very nice that our four legged family members were also welcome. Beds were comfortable, and room was relatively clean. Kids played in the pool, delivery for dinner, and breakfast was as expected in the morning. Good value.

We checked in late due to weather we encountered traveling. The front desk attendant was very courteous and made check in a breeze. We asked for a few things we had forgotten and she provided them all very quickly. The hotel is a little old, but is kept in very well condition. We did see a sheet in the room...

Old & not up to IGH standards & check in person was rude. Had a hard time getting refund on unused days. Room was expensive & not worth the $$. Go some where else. Only a few choices here but much better on down I-10. Had to call Orbitz in order to get a refund. Front desk did not provide...

Ok, the location is convenient and next to a stand of live oak trees. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Then there is the building and rooms: How does a hotel not 10 years old with a national brand name look like an off brand off the highway hotel gasping its last breath? Rooms have patched walls, plumbing poorly maintained,...
