Out dated, poor wash room facilities, heating did not work and during storm cold air was coming in. Additional charge for parking cars. Very unpleasant and not usual Holiday Inn experience.

Great hotel.

The hotel was great, the staff very helpful. The description of the hotel said it had a restaurant however, it was closed all 4 night that we were there. We would not have stayed at the hotel, had we known there was no restaurant.

  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

This property is UNDER CONSTRUCTION. This is something that should really be disclosed online before booking. There is equipment everywhere, and they get to work VERY early in the morning. It makes the old hotel look terrible, too. Shoved into a dirty corner looking run down. Our room was so-so with old carpeting and a musty feel. The air conditioning was confusing to operate, so we couldn't cool down the room very well. The bathroom was nicely updated, though the shower head could be replaced. The breakfast was okay. Made better by the great coffee. Overall, I am disappointed in this property mainly due to the construction right outside my window.

  • Disliked: Staff & service

What was unique and at the same time terrible was that the hotel is right in the middle of a construction site and you have to find your way past cranes and machinery to get to reception. It is unsafe, very old and is adjacent to a major freeway. We opted not to stay!
