Chose this hotel for its location. Older hotel with a great pool and right downtown. Staff not very friendly...seemed more interested in carrying on a conversation with her girl friend. The room was very disappointing. Spiders building a home in the valance had not been disturbed for a while. Had to sit sidesaddle on the commode because the paper holder... More

Nice, updated hotel. Clean rooms, friendly staff. I would give Holiday Inn a couple tips on design--you need a place to hang a hand towel at the sink (or at least leave one there for that initial hand wash). Front desk staff are warm and helpful. I didn't use the pool, but it looks well-proportioned.

We were in town for a reunion and the location was right. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and the a/c was quiet.
