I have never traveled with a pet or stayed in a pet friendly hotel and I was not sure what to expect. I was very pleased. The staff was happy to have our dog but also explained the pet rules. The hotel was super clean and did not have the odor of what I would expect a "pet friendly" property... More

Began contacting the property 30 days prior to canceling reservation due to a family emergency. The site charged my credit card and refused refund.. citing "agreement made when reserving room" ... nice fine print. Poor business practices, poor customer services, poor excuse of management.

We have stayed in a number of Holiday Inn Express hotels. This one is average. The rooms, common areas and hallways are a bit dated, but it was clean and beds were comfortable.

It was a nice hotel, We checked in on a Sunday and all was nice inside. The pool area was in need of attention and didn't get it until about Wednesday. I picked up beer cans and threw them in the full trash container. Cushions were worn and raggedy. The breakfast buffet was good and staff was very friendly.
