Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Only thing good about the property is the rooms were quiet. Took over an hour to check in super slow single desk agent @8:30 pm. Garbage over flowing at entrance. Garbage and dirty bedding lined hallways at 11 pm. Rooms not ready at 9:30pm. Breakfast was a single muffin and single yogurt no other choices. Pool was closed. People still lined 5 deep at 11pm trying to checkin. A family has booked 5 rooms only got 3 rooms. Only time the desk agent seemed to care was when my wife was calling Expedia to see what we could do about not getting the second room we had already paid for. The second room came available real quick like within minutes of him figuring out we were calling to complain. Vending a machines either didn’t work or were sold out same with the ice machines. Thought maybe it was just a bad weekend. But talked with cleaning staff and was told this is every weekend that they don’t have enough staff for weekends. I usually stay with Hampton and best western definitely won’t be staying at holiday inn anytime in the near or foreseeable future. Sent an email about our experience haven’t gotten a call or email yet expect they don’t care they got paid

Terrible management!!! Very rude front lady, she doesn't have any kind of sympathy for MANY frustrated customers, who waited few hours for their prepaid rooms to be ready.... Although she acted to be surprised by the fact that people durig the check out were not happy with their staying experience, at one point when she turned out I sow her laughing, I found it very, very unprofessional...When we went to get our breakfast, it turned out we had to sign up for it first(?) Unpleasantly surprised as breakfast bag included muffin and yogurt....definitely not what I sow on advertising pictures. Room for 5 people had only 2 towels !!!! Although, it wasn't hard to go down and ask for extra set ...they didn't had any towels available. We were told pool was closed due to water quality (I might be wrong) but i had a feeling that luck of available towels has something to do with it too ;) So far, Holiday Inn seems to be a good chain, but this particul place is a mess...

People were waiting over 2 hours for their rooms bc of a houskeeping shortage. Most rooms were handed over after a quick sheets change and garbages emptied. Nothing was refilled. We had to beg for towels (they gave us 2 for 5 people). Standing in line for almost an hour to get those. the pool was closed because the water was so dirty after there was a whole baseball team in there the first night for hours while they waited for their rooms. They ran out if breakfast the first morning before 8 am and the second we got a paper bag with a muffin,yogurt and a fork. No refunds or discount were offered . Managment was uselass in offering anything to help out . Worst hotel stay ever.

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities
The property was under staffed which affected the quality of our stay in a negative way. We did not feel that we were able to ask for anything extra like an extra cup, or extra towel, because the front desk was always filled with a line up and complaining customers, staff did not have have the time to answer the phones...they were cleaning rooms still at 10pm and customers were constantly lined up at the front desk waiting and waiting...the breakfast was still only in paper bags and hit and miss if you would get some...the pool was so cold and the hot tub lukewarm...there was no stay over service "due to covid" but this meant that people had to leave their garbage in the hallway to be picked up...which took awhile...
