It was pretty much the standard Holiday Inn, clean and predictable, but at this property it should be noted that the staff was particularly friendly and welcoming

The hotel staff was very nice but the hotel is very outdated. The rooms are very small and had a musky smell. The air units inside the rooms are extremely loud so it’s hard to have a good night sleep. Our sliding glass door to the outside was so dirty you couldn’t see out of it. The door did not lock. The breakfast was not great very small selection. I personally wouldn’t stay here again.
