However, the pool was very dirty. Each day it had dead bugs and hair floating on top of the water. Also, the quality of the hot food for breakfast was poor.

The guest services and customer service was excellent as soon as I walked in, they explained how the information for booking the room from a hotel planner was not the same information I was told for holiday Inn, I do appreciate them trying to accommodate me.

"My middle school band and I have been extremely pleased with the service we received from your company. I had many choices for hotels very quickly and the hotels I considered were all excellent. Even after I selected our hotel, your agents stayed in contact with me periodically and even arranged a free upgrade of my room to a suite! What a nice surprise! I plan to book my next trip through them and would highly recommend them to my friends for their group travel plans. Thanks for a great experience." C.C. - Grove Hill, AL
