  1. BlairAdams says:

    It would have more informative if the original name of the hotel was included. It’s misleading. The Holiday Inn was first opened where the Eureka Hotel is. The current Holiday Inn was the Falcon Ridge Hotel. I would anticipate that a writer of history would have better sources in the future.
