Hotels Keep Busy Over Holiday Weekend

Posted: Updated:

DENISON, TX--Many travelers who looked to get on the lake this weekend also looked for a place to stay.

An employee at the Holiday Inn Express in Denison says that business this weekend hasn't been this busy since the Dixie Darling world series. 

She estimates about 80 percent who needed a room were also here to see the lake. All rooms were full except for one by Saturday.

"This is definitely good for business," Candi Slagle said, Holiday Inn Front Desk Manger. "We're in a good spot, good location that brings everybody out here so it's pretty good."

The front desk manager says she kept busy by giving customers directions. Many are still checked in because they're still at local parks.
