I'm happy to say that my second visit in a year was a much better experience! Again, staff were very friendly, bed was unbelievably comfortable. And no problems with any infrastructure... Just here for one night this time but they seem to have sorted things out. I will be happy to stay here again.

This was the first time staying at this location. I found thongs OK but no way it should be a Holiday Inn as they need improvements to meet the other Holiday inn locations that I have stayed at.

Close to the Lone Star restaurant (walking distance). The rooms were modern and clean and the beds were very comfortable. Price was a little high seeing they had renovations going at the same time. I liked the breakfast as well.
