Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I liked the fact that it is dog friendly and has a pool and hot tub. The rooms were new and large. I liked the decor. Unfortunately, Our room had a beetle infestation. The clerk was not going to do anything at first but then he gave us a room on the second floor, without beetles. The original room was a dog friendly room. It smelled like urine in the bathroom. The air conditioner rattled. The walls were super thin you could hear perfect conversations of the neighbours. The doors slammed shut starting at 6am. You could hear people walking upstairs and getting ready. There aren’t any good grass areas for the dog to pee. The breakfast was gross. No options for vegans. Only green bananas and navel oranges. At least my dog liked the meat. The pool was clean and warm but you could only book one family at a time for one hour. Families did not abide by this very well. There were maintenance men every time we went for our one hour swim. Over all I would never stay here again.

i tried to rent a room that showed and said that it had two beds and a fold out out separated or in different rooms. it did not. it was needed so i very disappointed. got back from the swimming and waterslides which was fantastic (5 stars for that) only to find that there was no extra linen for the fold out bed. the front desk person was very fast in delivering the linen- not pleasant however the fold out bed was not comfortable...good thing there was a little person staying on it. The fantastic breakfast (minus the broken waffle machine) was great as well as the attendant. she was 6 stars out of 5

I have used Holiday Inn Express in a number of places around the world and what I like is they are fairly central, clean, friendly, tidy - no surprises - I like that. Consistency, at my age, that is what I like.
