My usual hotel was booked in Salisbury so I ended up at the nearby Holiday Inn. It was a tired and uninviting place. Despite being in a non-smoking building, my room smelled of cigarettes for my entire stay. The real story of how sad this hotel is was at the end of the hall. When a hotel needs to put bars and grates on the vending machine inside the locked doors of the hotel, it is a rough place. I was glad to pack and leave at the end of the week.
