I was supposed to fly out yesterday evening from Deer Lake but I missed my flight. I'm on a flight this afternoon and needed a place to spend last night.
I drove up to the Holiday Inn Express (on Bennett Avenue) and asked if they had a room even though I didn't have a reservation ... and they did. In fact, I was upgraded to a larger king room. The room rate was $139/night.
Here's my room ...
It's only about 10 minutes from the airport so I didn't have far to go. I had a conference call this morning so was able to have a late check-up. A complimentary hot breakfast was included (I didn't check it out). WIFI (it's fairly speedy) and parking are also complimentary. Apparently there is an indoor pool with an 80 foot waterslide ... alas, I didn't have my bathing suit to check it out. There is no restaurant onsite for supper so I ordered a pizza for delivery from Pizza Delight.
