This was our first visit to this hotel. Our company was in the area doing business, we travel often for work, and this hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel was very well kept inside and out. The staff was very pleasant and attentive to our requests. We will definitely be staying here again.

This is the first time we have stayed at this property. All of your staff from the front desk to house keeping were wonderful. We had one complaint when leaving and it was noted by the desk clerk. Although as I said the room was very clean it smelled musty. Maybe a new filter in the A/C would do the... More

Great location if you are going to the Fairgrounds for an event. Just walk across the street! The hotel was clean and relatively new. My only two disappointments were: Elevators were very slow, 1-3 minutes for a 4 floor hotel. Wait and wait for it to arrive. The second problem was the air conditioning. There are no thermostats in the... More

This is your typical Holiday Inn Express. Not really exciting, but clean and cheap. The only thing is these guys want over $150 a night, so it isn't cheap. For that price, I would rather stay at a nicer hotel. However, at least you know what your going to get with Holiday Inn Express. A clean room, but don't try... More
