    Where do I begin? Once we pulled in we noticed foul smelling leakage from the ceiling in parking garage. We were greeted poorly by staff, who were too busy talking about birth control and drinking after their shift, with no regard for professionalism. Once in the room, everything is old and decrepit.

    Staff were friendly enough. The facility is not nice. A/C wasn’t working. Room was spacious but carpet, ceilings and windows were dirty. Only 1 elevator was working. The shower was a disaster. It would go boiling hot and the only way to cool it down was to shut off completely and try again turning up slowly until the water was barely warm and that’s the best it would get. TV remote would not change channels or adjust volume so we had to get up and go to the TV every time to adjust. They gave us another a replacement remote and has the same result. I won’t be back.

    I called ahead of time to ask for an earlier check in because we were there for a wedding. They did not inform us until arriving at the hotel that their air conditioning was broken, when it had be broken the day before.

    Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
    On a long trip spent in budget-level motels, the Holiday Inn was a step above. The front desk service was great--beyond the call of duty. The unusually comfortable mattress and nice pillows deserve particular mention.It has free parking on site. The one negative consideration was that, through no fault of its own, the hotel is currently fronted by a major street construction zone, compromising its normal aesthetics and accessibility.

    Traveled with family and small children
    Liked: Amenities
    Although the room was comfortable, it was a bit cluttered with an ice bucket behind the TV, microwave on the mini fridge, and coffee maker on the desk, also there were stains on the chair and sides of the bed, chips on the edges of furniture, and the toilet was quite cramped - felt like the lid was pushing me forwards. Not acceptation cash for anything was also very inconvenient, especially as they couldn't run my card which was I credit. I had to book online via Expedia and pay extra despite being in the hotel lobby, just to get my room. $100 deposit is also expensive for one night.

    This property was in the heart of downtown Rochester, which would make it seem convenient to people who haven’t really been there. However, there was construction going on all around the hotel making it very difficult to find, the elevators were broken, our room was dated, our room overlooked a dingy (MOLDY & CLOSED) pool area, the hotel restaurant wasn’t open during its own business hours on the day of our arrival… our stay just wasn’t what we envisioned and we likely won’t be back to this hotel.

    We only interacted with the staff during check-in and check-out. They both were efficient. The staff who checked us in was friendly. The staff who checked us out was dealing with someone else (not sure if she was a customer) at first, but he quickly put that person on the side and took care of us. Not sure if we were supposed to put out a sign or order house keeping service or not, but during our entire stay (three days), no house keeping came to clean the room or replenish supplies.
