I first started using this Holiday Inn about a year ago or more. Since then I have seen it continue to decline. Breakfast use to be a high point of my day at this Holiday Inn, now you have to be standing at the breakfast area at 6am if you hope to get a yogurt. Think they put out about...

First and foremost , the staff were very good! I kind of feel bad about leaving this review, but after being there a whole month ... It's over due! As soon as I walked into the hallway , BAM OLD musky smell! I guess it's from the aged carpets, same smell was in my room. I don't know whether or...

I was very disappointed in this Holiday Inn. First it was myself and a friend. Both ladies, we were not aware that the only double rooms were in the back with an outside entrance. The light in the bathroom was out but that was fixed very fast. We went to have dinner with friends and had not turned on the...

Daughter was returning to college (Lamar U is about 10 minutes away!) after leg surgery. The staff was so accommodating in changing the reservation to get us in a room on the first floor with hands-cap accessibility. The temp was perfect when we walked in- so many places leave the air off and it's hot when you arrive. They were...

My spouse and I attended a local function and hadn't stayed at Park Central in years. This location is always the go-to place for corporate out-of-town visitors. Rooms are immaculate. They have a very strict no-smoking policy for the no-smoking rooms which we loved! No over-perfumed room to mask smoke. It's so convenient for dinner, shopping, etc. Nice bar, but...

It was not my first choice but ended out being a good one. My room was spacious and clean and looked out on a lovely pool. There's no complimentary evening drinks or breakfast, but the savings in price are worth it. There is a bar if you'd like a drink (although the smoke is quite thick) and you can take...

We held our 40th class reunion at the Holiday Inn Park Central last summer. We experienced the courtesy and charm of JUDY Schoolfield, as our wonderful consultant. Everything was WONDERFUL! We had a need for a wheelchair at our reunion, which the hotel graciously supplied. Recently, my husband had a severe rheumatoid arthritis flare-up, and could not use his crutches....
