I am often in the Charleston/Mattoon area for Eastern Illinois University business as well as visiting family. I have been staying at the Holiday Inn Express since they opened in 2009. The staff has been consistent in all these years. Friendly, helpful and always... More

I stayed here with my husband while visiting family. The room we stayed in was very nice. This is the best hotel, in the area, to stay in. It's not too expensive. And the rooms are nice. The staff is super friendly. Next time we visit, we'll be staying there again for sure.

This is one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. The continental breakfast contained many and varied items. There was something for everyone. All the said hello or good morning when they saw you. I have stayed here several times in the past and have always found it excellent and good value for your money.

Extremely clean, very friendly staff, over-large rooms. And as a previous reviewer noted, windows that open easily, allowing something other than the usual rarely-replaced-filters that plague so many hotel air systems. Really loved the lack of bolsters and questionable bed covers; everything was white and crisp except the foot warming blanket, which appeared clean and new. Breakfast was all right,... More
