This Holiday Inn Express catered superbly to two drained, wilted festival-goers looking for a comfortable place to bed down, watch nighttime television, spend some time poolside and catch a light breakfast. On all these fronts, our stay surpassed our expectations! This hotel benefits from gracious, affable and knowledgeable personell at all hours (though the stars of this experience for us were those on duty in the breakfast room near the end of the window and at the reception desk in the late evening and again at around noon.) The staff (to say nothing of the immaculate rooms and stellar breakfast) made for a superb experience from top to bottom and from check-in to check-out.
The water pressure in my shower left a little something to be desired, and the second of two milk cartons I had at breakfast tasted a little bit weird, but these are obscured by the overall quality of my stay.
Most comfortable hotel bed ever. Neat and very clean. Nice staff. Good location. Easy to find.
Nothing, it was great!
Breakfast was very tasty. Coffee was very good!
The room was great! Simple and clean. Didn't expect to get two beds for a one person stay. Nice and spacious for the price.
The breakfast was meh. Wish there was more options for fresh fruit or omelettes.
