We have to go to Magnolia on business every so often. We have discovered that the Holiday Inn Express is a good place to stay. The rooms are quiet and comfortable, and the staff members are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there again.

We've stayed at pretty much all of the hotels in the Magnolia area, but this one is our favorite. It was during the blossom festival and the staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. The manager was there giving directions and information about the festival and we really appreciated his help. They have an excellent... More

My wife, daughter and mother stopped for the night. Rollaway was set up complimentary for our daughter, and the beds were very comfortable. Swimming pool was wonderful, and front desk services are superb. My mother that uses a cane, had her breakfast served to her by the breakfast attendant to her table. Highly recommend and will stay again. Thanks for... More

Excellent hotel. Our room was very clean. The breakfast was delicious. We have never stayed there before, but will be back. The service and staff were very nice and helpful. Our room was on the third floor and very quiet. Got a good nights rest.

I was very impressed with this hotel. Usually stay at another hotel in the area, but thought I would give this one a shot and I was glad I did. The staff was great! I travel to Magnolia several times a year for work and I will gladly stay here again!

Great location, good breakfast, exercise room only has two treadmills and nothing else which is the only down side to this hotel. The soft and firm pillow choice is great for sleeping and there's enough to choose from to eat around the hotel.

Our son is on the baseball team at SAU, and we began regular travel to Magnolia four years ago. I stayed at another hotel first, before finding the HIE, and decided quickly this would be our remote home for the next four years. This was the only better-quality hotel in Magnolia until the recent opening of a Hampton by the... More
