Pros. I liked a lot about most Holiday Inns and this was no different. It had a lot of convenient / cool amenities, like very delicious hot breakfast, a gym, a pool / hot tub, Bed Bath and Beyond lotion, etc. I really appreciated that they had soft and firm pillows on the bed and labeled it accordingly! My friend that I traveled with is a little bit of a germophobe and she lifted up both of our beds to check for bed bugs. We definitely didn't find any; the rest of the room was also very clean.

Cons. One of the only things I didn't like was that our room couldn't get Wifi Connection. When I called the front desk, they did offer to switch our room, but we were already settled in. It was okay, though, because I think most of their rooms have Wifi, just ask if that's something that's important to you.

Steven, Feb 2015

Pros. Hot breakfast until 9:30 was good. Theres a bar within walking distance that was a neat place. And its next to some nice walking paths. Comfortable beds and great bathrooms also.

Cons. Only an outdoor pool was really the only downside.

Pros. The room was very nice and clean.

Cons. There were children above us running up and down The halls screaming and slamming doors at all hours. My family and I didn't feel relaxed. We could not rest.
