    I liked the comfort of the bed after a long day in the sun.

    I didn't like the breakfast.

    Excellent central location and covered parking for motorbikes. The pool area looked very pleasant although we did not use it

    The front desk staff was very nice. She informed us of a federal employee discount that we didn't realize we had! We also enjoy the bar downstairs.

    The plumbing was slow. We didn't report it because we weren't in the room that much and we only stayed one night.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn. The value for money was great. The staff were super lovely and helpful. The facilities were excellent - we needed to do some washing and we got a load washed and dried detergent included for $5. There is a free airport shuttle and the location is excellent. It's within walking distance to the centre of town and to the university. 5 stars.

    I liked the location.

    The building inside and out needs upgrading. I was disappointed that it did not have free breakfast due to the expensive room prices. The computers were in a bad place. There was no privacy.

    Location & clean hotel & shuttle to the airport

    Fabulous

    The location was convenient and the room was comfortable.

    A housekeeper broke my travel conditioner bottle and didn't say or do anything about it - I just found it where I'd left it but missing a piece of the cap. Also, the exercise room is right across the elevators, which is convenient for access but awkward when everyone watches you work out while waiting for the elevator.

    Heel vervelend dat er een grote groep punkachtige jongeren incheckten die voor onrust zorgden. Alles werd ontruimd. Het brandalarm is loos door hen afgegaan waardoor wij midden in de nacht buiten stonden. Mss is het verstandig om zulke groepen buiten de deur te houden. Zij schaden de reputatie van holiday inn.

    - Locatie is redelijk goed - Relatief ruime en goed uitgeruste kamers met gratis (maar traag) internet

    - Schoonmaak kan wat beter - Personeel zeer wisselend vriendelijk. Sommige heel vriendelijk, maar sommige ronduit onbeschoft
