I have stayed on two occasions at this Holiday Inn Express for multi-night business trips. Each time I found the hotel staff friendly, the rooms clean, and beds comfy. I like the convenient location, just off I-75 and right off Archer Road. Less than a mile down Archer Road there are many, many options for meals and shopping. Hope you... More

I made the mistake of stopping here during a lay over in travel. As an IHG Rewards Club member, I was disgusted at the condition of the room. Broken toilet seat, bathroom was filthy, dirt and dust all over the fixtures and laps...well just about everything. Slept with the my clothes on. Stayed 6 hours and ran out the door!... More

After driving for 18 hours, we finally stopped. Can't go wrong with a holiday inn express right? WRONG! Room smelled, comforter was stained with who knows what. Fixtures broken, dirt caked on everything. Didn't even stay for breakfast! We ran out!

We arrived tired from a seven hour trip from South Florida in a 16 foot box truck. The desk person was welcoming and pleasant. The room was more that adequate with a king sized bed, refrigerator and coffee maker. The bed was very comfortable as has been the case for most Holiday Inn Express facilities we have stayed in lately.... More

I made a costly mistake of booking a room at this location. When I cancelled reaervations, I was told that days are required for special event weekends. When booked room, was never made aware of this. In addition, I never heard of any such policy. Since this is a big college town most weekends are special events. Managment is rude,... More

When booking your rooms online the system provides you with a cancel by date to avoid penalties. I do apologize that you still feel like we did something wrong, regarding your reservations, when they are booked online the cancel by date shows on your confirmation that you can print or save to your computer for future review.

We recently stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. It was an ok stay overall. The location is good, close to the university, right off I-75. Our room had a fridge and a microwave, but not all of the rooms do. The breakfast was good, the staff was friendly, and in general the hotel was clean. When staying for 4... More

It started with the reservation, which took well over 30 minutes to make. Pretty simple- four rooms for three nights, one room for one night. One king bed, four with two doubles. One dog. First it was booked in the wrong month, then booked with no king and apparently in the wrong rooms for a pet. Not their fault despite... More
