Had a pleasant time, but...

4 out of 5
Posted Feb 13, 2017
Pros: The location is great! The room we stayed in was super spacious. The beds were very comfortable.
Cons: Cleanliness of the hot tub needs improvement. Make sure all bedding is clean.
Location: There were LOTS of options for eating and definitely shopping very close by.
The hotel was mostly quiet, however there were really loud noises coming from some of what I am assuming was the heating or air conditioning units on the roof right outside our window. The pool was nice and warm and not crowded at all, however, the hot tub filter was not working properly and it had this icky film of yuck and I don't want to know what floating all over the surface. Ick! The room was nice and clean and the beds were SUPER comfortable. So were the pillows. However, there was what looked like a blood stain on the sheets and dark spots on the pillow cases. Half the hotel looks very nicely upgraded, but there are parts where the hotel looks quite old. We had a nice stay, but it was disappointing when it came to cleanliness of the hot tub and sheets.

Adequate business hotel

3 out of 5
by from Houston, TX
Posted Dec 8, 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: There is a huge issue between Holiday Inn and Expedia and a show stopper for me. Holiday Inn does not give priority points for rooms booked through Ex
Location: There is anything and everything you could ever wish or ask within a short drive.
Although the property seems a little dated it was clean. TVs were flat screen but low resolution, lounge was okay but very expensive. Overall the experience was a little above average but okay.

Pros: Anything you need it was nearby.
Cons: No complaints!
Location: Mall in restaurants right down the street.
Room was very clean & everything was nearby. Price was extremely reasonable and checked in within a matter of minutes. Full restaurant and bar. We were looking for a place that was near the Navy recruiting station to see my nephew graduate the next morning.

Overpriced and under delivered.

3 out of 5
by from North Prairie, WI
Posted Sep 27, 2016
Pros: Convenient location to 6 Flags.
Cons: Fix clearly needed repairs and for the room rate add a fridge and safe to the room.
Location: 6 Flags and retaurants.
Room rate was quite pricey per night but the room did not have a refrigerator nor a safe. The threshold between the room and bathroom had torn carpeting and in the middle of the night I stepped on an exposed carpet tack. When we checked in two employees were having a loud personal conversation behind the desk and when we checked out no one asked us how our stay was nor thanked us for coming.

Decent business hotel, very noisy plumbing

2 out of 5
by from Canada
Posted Sep 15, 2016
Pros: Room, parking, check-in, lobby, location were all great.
Cons: Plumbing for noise reduction or go back to normal quiet-flush toilets.
Location: Lot's of restaurants nearby. Close to Interstate 94.
This is a Holiday Inn property, so all the basics are covered nicely. Everything worked well. There was one important criteria where they sadly failed: they use the newer toilet technology that when flushed, it uses a fast-evacuation compressed water method that is extremely noisy. So, if you are looking for a good night's sleep, bring earplugs or book another hotel. All through the night, one could hear the other rooms' toilets flushing. Very loud.

Not going back

Besides the fact that there was a big brown stain on the middle of the bed sheet, the bed was completely uncomfortable and the fact that my family was scared awake at 1:15 am because the fire alarm went off for about 10 minutes and we had to evacuate (which no one ever told us what exactly happened) the room/hotel was just alright.
