It was a pretty typical Holiday Inn Express. Friendly staff.


Decent basic hotel near the airport.


Everything was fine but the bed and pillows were hard/lumpy. Desk staff were very helpful, helped to mail towels cards I kept by accident back to another hotel.


Hotel was very clean and comfortable, check in was easy. Breakfast was great.


Typical Holiday Inn Express. It was fine.


This was just a half a night stay - but it was fine. Sitting by the pool in the morning was good. The girls at the counter were friendly & helpful.


hotel was nice and convenient to airport a little noisy but did see parrots at the pool


Average airport hotel, perfect for the quick overnight.


Although short lived this stay was very nice. One of the comfiest beds we had all trip and we were greeted with a short handrwritten message from one of the staff members which was sweet.


Very clean room. Breakfast was great. Shuttle to the airport was prompt. What more could I ask for.


Lovely and clean and in a great location.


Good place to spend the first or last night close to the airport. Other than that, it's what you would expect of a hotel chain (except the fact that they don't have a restaurant).


Front desk staff was very helpful. Allowed us to check-in very early on our last day.


Passing airplanes where a bit loud.


Staff was helpful in getting us transportation to/from the city, driver great. We toured the National Theatre and the Gold Museum, and we enjoyed both experiences. Hotel convenient to airport and met our needs.


Holiday Inn is an Okay Hotel. Staff is good


The Holiday Inn was amazing. The staff was extremely helpful. We loved the little brown bag breakfast they gave us, at 3:00 a.m., so we would have something to eat while waiting at the airport for our departure.


Perfect location for early departure from airport. You can pay your departure tax there.


There were issues with the toilet but otherwise it was fine
