Poor 2.0
Not a good experience at all.
I made a complaint and was told they would contact you to refund me 50% of my charge due to the inconvenience. We stayed in 213 on the second floor. Had to walk through 1st floor to get to elevator. 2st floor smelled like every room was smoking weed it was VERY bad. The people abovr us has someone runnung and jumpong. I called front desk at 8:37pm to complain was told they would call the room and give a warning. It continued I called front desk again after 11pm when it sounded like someone jumped and was going to fall through the floor. They said ok they will contact them. It continued until we were finally able to fall asleep after 4pm. The AC leaked and the floor was soaked. The bedding had stains. It was a horrible experience.

Good 6.0
Highly inconsistent
The location is great. We paid for both nights same price. Learned after 1st night they did not clean the room, did not make the beds or empty trash. When I complained they were kind, switched us to and room. Our room had king size bed and the room was booked for 2 adults. Take away bag with breakfast (Covid 19) was for one. I was told one bed one breakfast. When I laughed at the receptionist she said I’ll give you another one. Room219 had broken sing stopper and did not drain. Room 212 I could not manage to get hot water for shower. I would add photos but don’t know how to do it.

Fair 4.0
Pillows smelled, towels were dirty, air conditioning on the third floor wasn’t on? It was super stuffy and the hotel smelled like if the whole floor was a smoking floor

Not worth it.
Room was to small for my taste. Nothing like the pictures. Paid $125 which was my discount - not worth it.
Yolanda, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
Holiday Inn quality in an budget area
It is in an scrundgy area and awkwardly placed but it is somewhat updated and cleaner inside than expected for it's age. The service seemed professional and adequate for the price but there was only one bath towel in the room. Bed was super comfy but the room was very small and definitely not sound proof. We didn't use the spa-sized pool because it was Jan and very cold.
