The conditions of the hotel was that you could tell it is really old with dingy carpets, dated looking doors, and dated, old beds which made us nervous. So nervous that we felt the need to check for bed bugs.

Right from the start we were greeted by a very unfriendly rude hotel desk worker. She was very unwilling to even listen to me and was just snappy to say well this what you get and it’s all we have even though I had booked this far in advance and had certain requests. The rooms were clean but not. My white socks turned dark bottom very quick a few minutes walking around the room. The shower had mold/mildew on and around glass shelves. Under the sink was obvious sign of water damage as the veneer on the wood was all gone and just looked like it belonged in a seedy motel off Route 66. Upon waking one person in our party had new bites on body... alerted staff but they didn’t come to check or talk to us at all. And just after checkout I looked at my credit card to find 4 charges from this hotel totaling almost $662 for a room rate I booked at $151 per night. Per room and had 2 rooms. And my billing cycle got hit and I have to pay that to avoid interest while waiting for the refund from IHG! The best part was when I called the front desk that day the gentleman on the phone said He could do nothing at that time that I should call my credit card company it was their fault and it was probably fees they charged. I have never heard of a credit card company putting a hold under IHG name.Not a good experience and I am so glad my future booked trips are not with a IHG property which is sad because I have always had good experiences til now. I will avoid this property all together

Great location at a great price

Pros: Luxuriously appointed rooms, great location, budget-friendly price.
Cons: The hotel is currently undergoing a remodel. Breakfast (not free) is served in a ballroom for now. Exercise equipment could be updated.
Location: Short walk to the Capitol, library and Grant Hospital. I highly recommend Cafe Illyria, a few blocks away.
I booked this hotel to attend a conference in the nearby Sheraton. My room at the Holiday Inn was an easy five-minute walk to the conference and half the price. The room was large, clean and tastefully decorated, with all the amenities anyone would need for business travel, including an iron, hair dryer, coffeemaker, mini fridge and excellent (free) WiFi. Hallways were quiet and the staff was friendly and helpful. Even the parking here was half of what it cost at the Sheraton.
