Room was great - Amenities? Not so much

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Poor breakfast
We've stayed at several Holiday Inn Express locations around the country and have come to expect certain amenities that come with their brand. This hotel did not live up to that expectation. THE ROOM MET OUR EXPECTATIONS, AND WE GAVE IT 5 STARS. But the halls were cold, the swimming area was cold and dank, and the breakfast did not have ANY meat or fruit.
