We stayed here on a cross country road trip. It was our first stop out of North Carolina and what a great one it was. The staff was super friendly. Location was great. Rooms were clean and quiet and the beds slept great. The free breakfast was one of the best we had ever had at a hotel. Bacon, sausage,... More

We had visited the Marion area before but had never stayed at the HIE. It was a great place to stay. It is very quiet yet close to lots of eating places and shopping. We had been in the Shawnee National Forest for the holiday weekend and this was about an hours drive from there so it was convenient for... More

Breakfast offerings awesome. They accomadated many here for the science fair by having an ealier than normal breakfast opening. Access nice. Surrounding areas to eat. Reasonable price. Nice rooms- clean. Beds firm. Not too noisy from nearby expressway. Water pressure ok and hot water good. Good size room. Elevators nice and functional. Should be a model for Holiday inn.

We had a pleasant stay. We were greeted by a very pleasant staff at the front desk. The lady that took care of the breakfast area was very nice too and kept things well supplied. The room was spacious and clean. The Hotel was close to restaurants. We will definitely stay here again if we ever pass this way again.

Front desk staff friendly, bed was comfortable, breakfast staff kept the food stations full, despite a baseball team and soccer team staying at the hotel. Room could've been a little cleaner. Biggest complaint is the prices. It's become almost ridiculous what an overnight stay costs. We were traveling on business and usually stay at Holiday Inns, but are finding the... More

We were in town for the weekend and have stayed with a Holiday Inn Express before. The staff is courteous and friendly. The breakfast was yummy! Rooms clean and nicely decorated. Anytime we need to be in the area will plant to stay here. Location to mall and eating is great and easy off I-57.

Hotel was in close proximity to the Miners baseball stadium and within walking distance to several restaurants and Menard's. Hotel was clean and tidy. Breakfast was standard, but hot and ready. Plenty of parking for small vehicles and even larger trucks/trailers. Would highly recommend this hotel if in the area.

The rooms are very modern and clean. I traveled with a group that required 2 rooms and we were a little disappointed they didn't have any adjoining rooms left when we checked in, so if that's something you need, I would recommend booking well in advance. We were still able to get rooms right next to each other so it... More

We stayed here recently while traveling to Mississippi. It was very clean, quiet, and felt practically brand new. It was also a great value. We didn't use the pool or any of the amenities except the wifi which was a strong and fast connection. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.
