Traveling on a business trip, this was just a one night stop on our route. We found the room to be nice and clean and the beds were comfy. There was a breakfast provided but we chose to eat at Cracker Barrel which was very conveniently located to the hotel.

This hotel is marginal at best. There was remodeling going on so the hallways smelled of paint. Wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling off. The wireless modem was waaay at the other end of the hallway, so my room, on the other end, could not get wireless access. I mentioned that to the person at the front desk, but she... More

We stayed here with friends. We were lucky enough to get the last 2 rooms available that day. The room was clean, the air conditioner was quiet & we were able to regulate it. The bed was comfortable. We got a good night's sleep. The staff members that we came in contact with were friendly & helpful. However, the star... More

I was traveling with my 2 year old granddaughter for a volleyball tournament and we had to unexpectedly change hotels. The staff here was very accommodating and greeted us on arrival. The two queen beds were so comfortable and the room was clean. There were nice toiletries. The room contained a fridge and a microwave with a coffee maker. (Coffee... More

First, let me just let you know right off the bat that we stayed here a whole whopping 60 minutes. The room was so worn and outdated that I felt dirty just being in the room. It certainly did not warrant the $104 price tag. I tolerated the room because my 6 year old wanted to go swimming so bad.... More

Room was clean. Toilet clogged when checked into room. Called front desk and they would take care of it. Never sent anyone up - was fixed by very helpful and friendly housekeeping staff. Majority of the staff was excellent and very friendly but this can not be said for anyone at the front desk. They need a refresher in Customer... More

This was the worst Holiday Inn Express stay my family has ever had. The room (especially the bathroom) was in need of an upgrade and the bathroom was filthy. Not sure the bathtub had ever been touched with Comet. Room had a musty smell. The elevator was extremely slow and would not open unless you pushed the button when it... More

fairly clean but carpet had faint musty odor. Nice HD TV. Suite did not have separate area for the hideaway like Country Inn. Decent room service and breakfast had bacon..nice touch. Plenty of hotels at this exit so I'll try another brand next visit.
