Upon first appearances, the building appears dated, but beyond the lobby doors., it is a delightful surprise. I was greeted by name when I arrived and upon entering my room I found a lovely welcome letter with my name on it, a complimentary welcome basket of fruit, snacks and water, quick and easy check in, a great breakfast, guards watching...

Let me first say that this is a nice Holiday Inn Express. I would have likely given this hotel 4 stars had they not charged an extra $50 for a night that included our well behaved dog. To make it worse, we were given a room near exits that could only be used in emergencies and therefore had to take... More

Dear Luv2takepics, Thank you for been a loyal Priority Club Member and for taking the time to review our hotel in Trip Advisor. I understand your feeling about the $50.00 pet fee, I apologize if you feel that it’s to high , but although dogs are well behaved and clean they leave behind dander, hair and other matters that have...

This is a pretty good hotel with not a bad location and - importantly for this trip - pet friendly. The room was clean, nice size, and convenient. There were no issues with lights, plumbing, or television. There were some noise problems with what I believe was a car shop next door, as well as what appears to be a... More

On my first night after a long workout in the fitness room, I was really thirsty. I went to the front desk and had a wonderful conversation with the night manager, Charlene, who directed me to the area where I would be able to purchase bottled water. :) Thanks Charlene!

Worst night's sleep I have had since trying to sleep on an air mattress. Mattress was like a rock, and got no sleep. Tub clogged and had to call front desk to have it unclogged. Electrical covers, and all detail to cleaning, were missed, i.e., baseboards, bathroom tissue holder, etc. Vanity area had not been remodeled, and glass shelf, mirror,... More

I had such a pleasant conversation this morning with Charlene, What a delight. Not sure that my husband and I would fine a "Place in the Inn" last night as we rolled into town, we scooped up the last room available at the Holiday In Express. When getting coffee this AM, I was so fortunate to have time with Charlene,... More

Pros: OK location, friendly staff. Cons: Double beds (not queen), small rooms, tiny sink/vanity area, no movie rental. The double beds are too tight for a couple to sleep in. My husband is 6'-0" tall and his feet were sticking out. When we pay for a hotel, we hope to at least sleep confortably. Also, our family enjoy to wind... More
