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!

There aren't a lot of lodging choices in Highland, but this is a nice option. 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. The staff at the hotel was very accommodating and friendly. The rooms were clean, the rates were excellent and the hot breakfast was very good...and free!!! I might just become a Holiday Inn... More

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.

Let's face it, some times customers are out in the middle of nowhere. I traveled with others who all stayed here at this Holiday Inn. Alone, I would have chosen a Marriott property closer to St. Louis and drive a bit longer to the customer. This was like Highlands 5 star hotel, all other hotel/motels were non name or motel... More
