Cons: Nothing.

Pros: Everything.
9.6 Excellent
Cons: By booking online, couldn't change from king to queen beds. Didn't have a recliner chair I had requested.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Despite the lack of routine housekeeping during our visit, the hotel was extremely clean. Love you enter your room on laminate flooring in a little foyer before entering into carpet in your room. The location is excellent and right on a walking path around the canal taking you to the Shipwreck Museum and dock for the glass bottom boat tour. Only a couple of blocks to the downtown business district. Breakfast is the typical Holiday Inn Express breakfast. The bed was comfortable and the linen quality excellent. The chaise lounge in the room is a nice touch.
Cons: While we very much liked this hotel, they are woefully understaffed. The day we checked in we arrived just after 6 p.m. to find our room not ready. We were advised they had a full house the night before and only two washers and dryers so the rooms were not all done yet. The desk clerk rearranged where she had pre-assigned rooms and got us into one. It was a very nice room and extremely clean. The next morning we ate breakfast and did some sightseeing. Came back about 2 p.m. Our room had not been made up. I thought that was very strange but we quickly changed and went out again. We returned that night at about 10 p.m. Imagine our surprise when our room still had not been made up. We contacted the desk who apologized who apologized and added 500 points to our ihp account. Next day, the same situation happened. Out for a while, came back about 2 and the room hadn't been touched. This time when we came in at around 10 p.m. the bathroom had been cleaned up but the bed was unmade. The desk Clerk was extremely apologetic and added another 500 points to our account. We left the third morning. This may sound petty to some, but it was extremely annoying to me. One of the pleasures of staying in a hotel is not having to do those things for myself. I love coming in to a freshly made up room. And if this basic step of housekeeping is missed twice, I start to wonder what else is being missed. A housekeeper we spoke to on one of our trips to the desk speculated perhaps we had left the do not disturb sign on our door or left things on our bed. Or perhaps put out the sign indicating we or participating in their eco-friendly program. None of this was the case. No signs on door, bed empty and room tidied up.
