Definately the most conveniently located to downtown. Housekeeping staff should work at front desk as they are way more friendly. In this town many of the rooms used to be smoking. Some have overcome this challenge, but in holiday inn they still try mask it with the most ungodly perfume spray - worse than the cigarette stench. I stay here... More

I have stayed in this hotel many times while traveling on business. The staff is very nice and the breakfast area is always stocked and clean. I REALLY wish they would rebuild in a different part of town...I have often felt unsafe in their parking lot, especially at night. It isn't close to many restaurants, but I will stay here... More

This hotel was exactly what I expected from a Holiday Inn Express - new, clean interior, friendly staff, quick check in/out. It's always nice to be treated well after a long drive from Little Rock! This hotel isn't near restaurants and isn't in the best part of town but I would stay here again if traveling to El Dorado.

Really nice facility, clean, spacious, love the new carpet in the hallways and stairways. The breakfast was OK, typical offerings. I do like the turkey sausage choice. Staff was friendly, and location is good. I hate to rate so low, but the WiFi connection might as well be non-existent! There are 3 access points listed, two wouldn't allow a connection... More

This hotel is fantastic is you don't need to sleep. The air conditioner in my room was so loud that I haven't been running it just so I can sleep. But, when the rooms on either side of me turn theirs on, the walls vibrate. I guess I should be thankful because the vibration of the air conditioner kind of... More

The Holiday Inn Express in ElDorado is a great place to stay if in the area. The hotel is about a block off the main highway so there was no noticeable road noise at night. Also the room seemed to be very quiet, I never noticed people making noise in the hallways. The hotel is not close to much variety... More

Standard Holiday Inn hotel room. Good breakfast; a bit of variety over the week. Free internet. Area driving from here into the downtown is sketchy (I wouldn't recommend stopping at night-or during the day!), but hotel feels safe. Best chain hotel option in town.

I travel quite a bit on business and have stayed in some very nice hotels throughout the U.S. and even out of the country (Hyatt, Marriott, Sheraton, Intercontinental, Ritz-Carlton, Omni, and many others). Service at many of these hotels was very good. I have NEVER received a warmer, friendlier reception and attention to my needs as a valued customer as... More

Professional staff, easy check in and new, very modern amenities. I really appreciated the fitness center, cleanliness and freshness of the fixtures, carpeting, and furniture of this hotel. It was quiet, comfortable and provided me with everything I needed.

I was working downtown. $105 for one night seemed high for the town and location. Room and bathroom were clean with lots of think towels. Breakfast was good. Staff was effective, efficient and helpful.
