We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for one night. Our room hadn't been booked properly, but we ended up with a nice (but unnecessary) handicap accessible room. The room was above average in size, and had nice windows because it was a corner room. There was an odor in the room of some unpleasant kind, but we adjusted to it after being in the room for a while. The handicapped shower was a bit messy because the curtain wouldn't keep all of the water in. It seeped out onto the bathroom tiles, which I wiped up with a towel. Found out that the floor wasn't so clean when I did that. Breakfast was very average for free fare at a hotel.
Modern, clean, great beds, big rooms, great shower, large TV, ample parking. Poor limited breakfast and a bit of a walk into the historic centre. Fair if not great value, no bathtub not a lot in the vicinity.
