Not worth it.
Room was to small for my taste. Nothing like the pictures. Paid $125 which was my discount - not worth it.

Holiday Inn quality in an budget area
It is in an scrundgy area and awkwardly placed but it is somewhat updated and cleaner inside than expected for it's age. The service seemed professional and adequate for the price but there was only one bath towel in the room. Bed was super comfy but the room was very small and definitely not sound proof. We didn't use the spa-sized pool because it was Jan and very cold.
