My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights, and everything was perfect. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was especially helpful and courteous. They assisted us with local questions and were always eager to help. Definitely will stay here again. Highly recommended.

This is my third stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Highland and I am more and more impressed each time. The rooms are clean, the breakfasts have hot offerings, and the location is central. But what is really special most important thing is how they, (specifically Lori the manager at the front desk, as one example) go above and... More

The only things good I can say about my room include soft sheets, spacious, large refrigerator. I would NEVER stay here again. First I found a dirty sock on the dresser, next was a black hair on the sheets, and finally (and most importantly) were the bugs. At night I killed a very small beetle on the wall next to... More

Nice and clean hotel that was great for us and our two dogs. Enjoyed dinner at a good family restaurant (called "Farmers") right across the parking lot and a satisfying breakfast provided in the lobby the next morning. Pool looked nice although we didn't use it.

I normally stay at Hilton properties but there was not one close where I was going to be working so I decided to stay here. Great decision! Very clean and fresh, the beds were very comfortable and the staff was extremely nice. I won't be so hesitant to stay at a HIE in the future!

Pros: - The staff was VERY friendly, and that made it a good experience. - The "Smile of a Child" TV station was available at this location. Nice to have a safe and enjoyable children's viewing option! - Comfortable beds - CLEAN - Right across... More

This was our first time at a Holiday Inn Express. We have a small dog, so we need places that are pet friendly. There was a charge of $20 for the pet; also, there was a free full breakfast served from 6-9am. It was very good. Not your typical coffee and Danish (if you're lucky). The room was very clean...

I've always been a Marriott girl, but stayed recently in a couple of different Holiday Inn Expresses on a cross-country move because the chain is pet friendly.

We were in Highland for a family wedding and really enjoyed our 4 day stay an Hilton Place, Highland. The staff was extremely helpful, breakfast was typical for the free breakfast thing - coffee really needed to be stronger though. Rooms were clean and beds were super comfy. Ice tea and water and cookies were available at checkin. Very accomodating.
