I hate writing reviews and usually don’t but this place was bad...for a Holiday Inn. The breakfast staff was great and check in receptionist but the rooms were dirty. I was moving the sheets around and noticed blood stains on mine. Lucky it was the bottom sheet mattress cover and I was out of there the next morning. Our bathroom ceiling was coming apart, literally!!!!! The carpets and floors were also filthy. Thank goodness I brought Lysol wipes and wiped things down. At check out I told the receptionist what was going on in the bathroom and she just dismissed it. If you can, stay elsewhere.

I would like to apologize for your experience with us. I have taken this review to the appropriate department for discussion as housekeeping is an integral part of our operation and since our guests' satisfaction is paramount to our success, these things cannot happen. I am sorry to read that we may not see you again, but please know that your feedback was incredibly helpful and we wish you the best. Thank you!
