My wife and I were in the airport area looking for a place to possibly check in early. Motel 6, Super 8 and Extended Stay had some very rude young ladies working for them, so it was nice to encounter Amor, Jasmine and other smiling faces at Holiday Inn. Jeanette at night staff was very nice too. Only complaint was... More

I stayed at this hotel last week for 4 uneventful nights and checked out at 9am. returned the car, caught my flight and once home at 1pm, I realized I had left a $80.00 new never worn Hawaiian shirt hung in the closet....

Dear Guest, I apologize for the challenges you had during your stay.

Have not stayed in Holiday Inns for years (frequent guest of HIE). This property was exceptional. Staff was helpful and professional. Rooms were clean and roomy. I will say that the bathroom door is a problem...the management should look at installing pocket doors. The bathroom is very narrow and the standard door is too large for the space. Otherwise loved... More

Checking in and the hotel room were clean. Our ac was blowing out hot air but the maintenance came within 20 minute and fixed it. The next day it happened again and they fixed it right away again. I couldn't give it a full 5 stars though because the sink drain was clogged and was very slow to drain.

I was sadly disappointed with this Holiday Inn, upon check in they charge an extra $25 per night per room.

The pros no way come close to the cons. Don't be deceived by the impressive lobby. The rooms are dirty and the maintenance person needs to be replaced (or maybe there isn't one on staff).
