I am glad we chose this hotel out of the seven options in Allen. We stayed at a different one last summer and found it to be mediocre. This hotel was a better price and the people were friendlier. Check in was an easy process, which was nice after being in and out of airports and on planes all day.... More

This HIX looked exactly like a HIX from the outside, but the inside was quite different than other properties in the chain. This one had a darker feel, with the dark wood, almost like from the baroque period. The property was extremely busy the night I checked in. Parking was difficult. Then I had to wait in the lobby for... More

RachelDG, We are a busy hotel! I am glad that you had a great stay other than the hall width and the issue with another guest putting their room key into your door. I hope you give us another try the next time you are in our neck of the woods. More

Hotel was very clean and the desk staff was outstanding. Checking was quick and painless. we had a little noise problem that night from upstairs, but it seemed to be taken care of before 10 pm.

I loved my stay on May 7 so much I also stayed on May 11 as well when I was returning to my home in Houston. The room smelled so nice and was very clean. On my return I booked in a suite and loved the extra room.

This hotel was great. The parking is a bit hard to manage as the lot is mainly on the back side of the hotel or otherwise you're parking in a restaurants lot. Otherwise you wouldn't know you were in a holiday inn. The decorations and amenities of this hotel made you feel as if you were in a 4 or... More

This Holiday Inn Express is new and nicely laid out. The front desk staff were all top notch. At least three restaurants are within easy walking distance of the hotel (IHOP and two Mexican). Ample parking and good dining area. They also have a small store near the front desk and laundry facilities.

Nice hotel, friendly staff, good rooms. Nice solid Precor cardio fitness equipment. Issue 1: The A/C has a fan mode but does not function properly--in A/C mode, manually setting the fan should keep the fan running (providing desirable white noise) but A/C and fan would shut off once the temp setting was reached. In this mode, the fan should continue... More

My wife & I stayed here over Thanksgiving 2013. The hotel is immaculate and staff extremely friendly. Our room was beautiful and spacious. Breakfast was of a high standard. We will certainly be returning here when next in North Dallas.
