We generally seek out Holiday Inn Express hotels to stay in while traveling as they tend to be very consistent in cleanliness and amenities. This hotel was a notch above! Very large rooms/suites. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable, staff is very friendly and helpful, hot breakfast is decent, and price is reasonable. AND---excellent Italian restaurant around the corner (Frank's), AND-- nice 8-screen movie theater right next door. Perfect combo for a nice romantic getaway that won't break the bank!

If I could give hotel a 10 star rating I would! We're traveling with our dog and had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The front desk staff was friendly and extremely prompt with service. The housekeeping staff should be commended for such an outstanding job. The decor is beautiful and the grounds around the hotel is perfect for walking... More

I spent one night here while on business. The hotel was very well managed, clean throughout and the staff was very interesting in making my stay enjoyable. The included breakfast was a notch above most hotels of this caliber. I will definitely stay here again.

Traveling from MA to AZ....stopped every night in a Holiday Inn Express. This way the best so far. Terrific service from the booking call to the exiting. Rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Didn't use the heating/cooling system because we needed a quiet night's sleep after the last visit. Breakfast menu changes from the weekend to week days and that... More

Well, the pool area and fitness room were still out of service. Staff never mentioned this to me at check in. Otherwise the hotel was clean and quiet. I only saw one elevator, I don't know what they do when it is out of service too.
