Modern and very pleasant. Copious and varied breakfast. Parking is $30 but free overnight on the street. Very nice pool area as well, but the water was a little too cool.

HORRIBLE- DON’T STAY HERE! They said there was a special and it would be about $80 with fees. Then parking was $30 for a single night!! From there, there was a $45 incidental fee which should have dropped off. I reluctantly accepted the fees, then they tried to charge me $75 for my ESA upon leaving when they’d reviewed the paperwork for her and approved her stay for free (only stayed one night). The manager then badgered me at checkout saying that my animal didn’t qualify and acted as though they did me a favor letting me stay there and charging me a fee that was MORE than the base value of the room... I was crying in their lobby while he couldn’t show me ANYWHERE on the site that it states a fee would be charged for an animal. She made no mess. After 25 minutes of me saying he couldn’t charge me for a fee I didn’t approve, he finally reviewed my paperwork for her (I have actual MEDICAL needs for her and she’s only a 5lb dog!) he said he’d refund it. I not only got charged the $80 for the room plus fees, but $120 in other fees separately for the hotel with a subpar room, a cold shower, and stressful parking situation. A MESS, truly cruel in their treatment of me. I will NEVER stay at a Holiday Inn Express again.

This hotel was amazing! The room was spacious and beautiful views. The only downside was the parking! They charge you $30 US dollars to park in their parking garage. We paid it and found parking in the afternoon. But as soon as we left for the night and returned around 11 p.m. the garage was packed!! So many people were upset they couldn't find a parking which resulted in all of us having to park in a public parking lot next to the hotel anfd pay by the hour. We spoke to the management at the hotel and the returned our $30 dollars back. Other than that, the rest of our stay was amazing.
