Great experience...I wasn't in a great mood when I arrived at the hotel. Lorna at the front deck was so pleasant and accommodating, I quickly found myself feeling better. The property was clean and inviting and our room was wonderful. I also love the Bath & Body Works products in the bathroom. Most hotels have no-name harsh cheap products. I... More

Waking in the door i instantly smelled a fresh scent and it was very pleasing. The elevators were the same. My room was nice and big worth no issues checking in quickly. Staff was nice and didn't bother me. Would stay here again.

We stopped here for one night on our way south on December 28. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. We were pretty tired when we arrived after a day of driving, so we appreciated the comfortable bed. I have nothing negative to say!

It's always a pleasure to find hotels that are pet friendly. This Holiday Inn Express was very understanding of our need to have a first floor room near a door for ease of access for our older dog. The property is clean and well maintained. The hot water is HOT which is great. Nothing worse than a weak stream of... More

The hotel room in this HIE puts a shame on Hoiiday Inn, Hilton, Double Tree, Crowne Plaza, etc. The desk is huge, the ambient light is just perfect. The size of my room is enormous. There is a refrigerator and bar sink. The breakfast foods are standard fare in HIE. I have not written a review for a long while,... More

HIE is one of our favorite chains and this property is as nice as we expected. Everything was well done and inviting. Most outstanding in my mind were the two clerks we had contact with.

Hotel was just fine. Had a king suite with Jacuzzi tub (nice for a long soak after the ride down). Room was clean and neat. Bed was comfortable. AC Unit a bit noisy, but our sleep was fine. Reception staff was friendly and welcoming. Did not have breakfast. NO complaints for what it was.
