Haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn in about 20 years, so wasn't sure how it would be. Also this is first trip with a pet so additionally wasn't sure what to expect. Turns out this was a wonderful stay. It is definitely pet-friendly. No one batted an eye when my German Shepherd walked in. Really appreciated that. Most hotels have...

The rooms are well lit, clean and well cared for. The help were all really efficient and made me feel welcome. The best part is they start their really well appointed breakfast at 5 am so you can get up and get on with your day.

The room worked out to $186 American with the $35 pet fee and taxes on both the room and the pet fee. Normally we leave a tip for cleaning staff, but not when pet fees are so expensive. The free breakfast was not very appetizing. The room was clean and the bed fairly comfortable. This was the most expensive hotel...

Reasonably modern. Simple check-in. There were some families using the pool which we didn't need to as we wanted to go straight to sleep in the large, comfortable bed. Wifi worked well, bathroom was clean. All in all, a great value option. The only negative to me was the breakfast. Overcrowded breakfast room with insufficient seating and the food was...

It's due for some investment as it is a bit outdated compared to other HI Express hotels. That doesn't mean it's bad, just showing its age. Plus the walls are very thin so be prepared to hear neighbor's coughing, loud TV's and alarm clocks. Standard breakfast etc
