Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Perfect hotel for family reunion!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My sisters and I hosted a Family Reunion August 3rd thru 6th, 2017 approx 80 family members. This was the perfect hotel. First of all let me say that with the assistance of Mandy Loeffler from start to finish, this was one of the best family reunions we have had. The catering staff was phenomenal. The rooms were great. There was a pool and a park for the kids. Hot tub and sauna for the adults. Free buffet breakfast. Bar/restaurant on premises. Shuttle to/from the casino. Shuttle pickup to/from airport. Shopping mall approximately 10 mins away. Waterpark 20 mins away. My family had nothing but praise and a great time. I would definitely recommend this hotel for group functions.

"Excellent Hotel for Teams/Groups."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Traveling with 15 11 year old boys is sometimes difficult. Not this time. Check in was quick and the rooms where ready and clean. The only downside to the rooms is no refrigerator/microwave. Having a restaurant on site was great. Food was good and kids eat free with an adult entry. Good selection on menu from appetizers, to burgers to entrees. The pool was awesome. Not just a small pool but a full size pool, sauna and steam room (sauna and steam room adults only). Thanks! Breakfast buffet was included in the room charge and was excellent. Fresh cooked eggs, bacon, sausage, cereals, fruit, baked goods. Thanks for a great experience.

"Great Time!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This hotel would have gotten a 8/5 from me but I had some trouble on the day before my wedding with the room block and with getting information the final week before my wedding and that was an added stress I didn't need. When I was booking this hotel the party person I was dealing with told me not to go with 50 rooms and to start with a block of 35. I wish I had listened to my gut because my guests did not all get to stay together because there ended up being two other wedding blocks at the hotel. I wish they had called me to let me know, so I could have added more rooms or looked else where. We hosted our Welcome dinner and our farewell breakfast at the hotel. AMAZING! The food was absolutely delicious and I could not have asked for nicer service. Their staff catered to me and my family and really did their best to make our events special. The hotel room that I stayed in was clean and beautiful. It was spacious and the bed was comfortable. I would recommend the hotel for wedding blocks or just a weekend getaway.

Response from Management on 02-Oct-2016:
Hello Danielle,Thank you so very much for your review. We are thrilled that you chose our hotel for you wedding, and very pleased that everything went so well. I do wish that we had handled things a bit differently for you when you asked for your room block. One of the reasons that having a hotel host the wedding is to keep everyone together. I'm truly sorry that there were some that could not stay with us. We thank you so very much for taking the time to honestly share your experience. On behalf of the entire team, I express our gratitude for allowing us to be of service on your wedding day, and we hope that you will return to see us again in the future!
"Great Place to Stay"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I booked a reunion for my college friends here. Starting from the first time I talked with Mandy in group sales to the front desk clerk saying good bye, it was a great experience. The staff, especially housekeeping, was very friendly, helpful and efficient. Price was reasonable, accommodations, and very nice although I personally would have enjoyed more water pressure. The breakfast buffet and service were very good. The pool, fitness center and outdoor gazebo were great assets as well.

"King Family Reunion"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Holiday Inn staff was wonderful. They treated us with great respect the whole weekend. It was great. Mandy the Sales Manager made sure of that. She is a sweet heart. The only problem we had was with housekeeping but other than that, all went well.
