What excited to get away for a night and was looking forward to relaxing in the hot tub and enjoying time by the pool. Nope. Nowhere did it say ok Holiday Inn’s website that 1- pool requires reservation in 1 1/2 hour increments. If there is no space, you don’t get to use the pool. 2- hot tub is closed. Closed. What a disappointment!! Especially as I could’ve stayed at my local hotel and not driven 4 hours to “get away” Room smelt of mold or mildew not quite sure what it was. Rooms need a makeover!! Outdated for sure. Lastly- beware of the doors with your room key. If anyone locks the door (so no intruders can come in) you are locked out. No the door hindge where you latch it over while you sleep. The regular door lock. I got locked out at midnight as nobody informed me this could even be a thing. It took 2 employees to help me back into my room at midnight. Very disappointing experience.
