Great for kids and dog too
Our kids enjoyed the water park. It was nice to have our dog with us since we didn’t have to pay for a kennel stay.

4/10 Fair

Facility needs some attention
Unfortunately this hotel was very dirty! It needs carpet cleaning everywhere and the walls are very damaged. My room was dirty. We found garbage and a previous guest left a pair of headphones. Pull out was very dirty, we tried flipping the mattress but it was even more stained. I don't mind and aged facility. But this facility just needs some attention. I definitely would not pay the rate to stay here again.

Awesome
Wow, what a fun Holiday Inn with a waterpark included in the stay. Free breakfast and parking too. My kids said this was the best Holiday Inn we have ever stayed at and we are frequent travelers so we have been to lots of hotels. Would definitely go back!
