There was never any hit wayer. Com0lained at desk, asked fior mgr and was told he would be there later. Never showed up. I was told the water situation has been like that for 3 months. The pool and hot tub was cold. People were walking around wet and leaving puddles everywhere which were not wiped up ever because they do not have enough staff. No one ever stocked or cleaned our room the entire stay even tho we requested it. Never had towels, garbage emptied, toilet paper replenished or beds made. The complementary breakfast had 1 staff member to work and was overwhelmed. Could not keep up with the amount of guests. Very poorly run, the owner obviously just cares for scamming people who come there. We tried to find another hotel but all were already booked. I'm sure the owners know this and have the advantage. We will never return to this hotel and will never recommend to anyone.

Pros Room was clean, the bed and pillows were great slept well all 3 nights there. Ac worked well, the bathroom was good size, water pressure was great. Quality shampoo, conditioner and soap. Cons: fake eggs for breakfast, only had a choice of bacon one day sausage the next instead of both. No bagels or english muffins, no fresh juice, the exercise room is very small and the dumbbells only go to 50lbs. Small pool and a hot tub you couldn't use.

Preface by saying we typically enjoy Holiday Inn Express and is a first choice when available. Will NOT recommend this location. We waited several hours for a room. At arrival, we were told the room was not ready so we left to go eat. We came back 90 minutes later and still waited several hours. My small children slept in the lobby during the wait. Ten hours from home on July 3rd night and there was no where else to go. They refused to contact a manager for myself and the other 4 groups waiting on rooms. Finally at 12:30 AM we got into a room. It is completely UNACCEPTABLE to not have a room that was **paid for** until 9.5 hours after check in and then handled unprofessionally. The room was a mess and there were no blankets, no soap, no toilet paper and only 2 tiny pool towels. So much for a relaxing night for our early morning start. To make matters worse, at 5:30AM the fire alarm went off and the entire place was evacuated. After being cleared by the fire dept for reentry, we were only allowed 1 person to retrieve belongings and had to vacate immediately. I understand this was not typical, but it exacerbated our horrible night. Not only were we not able to have a good night’s rest, but we were unable to shower and have breakfast too. We were forced to find an alternative which unfortunately was a local park where we were able to change clothes and freshen up so we could begin our July 4th plans. WORST HOLIDAY INN EXPERIENCE EVER! Oh and not refunded as of 7/6/21
