Stayed here for two nights in May 2015 for business. The room was large and clean, and the hotel staff were courteous and helpful. I didn't hear anyone else when I was in my room. The bed was comfy and the shower was nice and large. Breakfast in the morning was decent for a hotel breakfast. Price was reasonable. Only... More

We were overnighting here on a journey from New Orleans to Orlando. We got a friendly welcome and a good room - sizeable, clean - just what was needed after a long drive. There are plenty of nearby restaurants including Village Inn, Outback, TGI Fridays. The hotel has lots of amenities - a pool, a gym, for those who want... More

I have many excellent things to say about the Holiday Inn Express at 1653 Raymond Diehl Road in Tallahassee, Florida. First, The room was clean and the mattress was very comfortable. Second, the complimentary breakfast was very good. It featured a wide variety of fresh food, including scrambled eggs, meat, cereal, fruit juice, fresh fruit, fresh pastries, etc. But third... More

I checked in on Feb. 27, 2015 and checked out on Feb. 28, 2015. I was attending a Florida State University college basketball game vs. the University of Louisville. My confirmation number for my stay on the receipt was 61187899. I stayed in room 526. Just a bit late reviewing your hotel. Very nice clean and spacious room with flat... More

We often stay at HIE hotels. We were so pleased to find out this was a new location. Although check in, at 1:30am, took far too long (10 minutes, as the clerk was on the phone), everything else was perfect. Our room was clean, quiet, and adequately dark with shades drawn. The mini fridge even held, and actually kept frozen,... More

We stayed here when we came up for a job interview and again when we came back to look for somewhere to live after that. Both times we were very pleased, the second time the staff remembered us and even called us by name. Rooms were very clean and bed was so comfortable that we woke up refreshed and ready... More

Good hotel. Clean. Stay at a lot of holiday inn expresses and they are all privately owned so you never know what you'll get but no problems here. Had a good stay, love the full breakfast and ease off the interstate. Worth your time if you're passing by.

I've stayed here before and enjoyed it, that's why I continue to return. The crew recognizes me which makes me feel welcome. The staff is always friendly, rooms clean and beds very comfortable. Every room I've stayed in has been quiet. The internet is good and free. The don't nickel and dime you. This hotel cares about it's guests

This was your typical Holiday Inn Express. Friendly staff, sufficient accommodations. Only one coffee cup for two people, very hot water in shower, which I like, but no water pressure. Expensive for average person but I figure it's mostly occupied by business people on a company budget.

We checked in later in the evening and checked out early before breakfast so I can't comment on the breakfast area. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and got us checked in quickly.
