The Holiday Inn Express - Mattoon is located about 1-2 miles directly east of downtown Mattoon, Illinois. It is also located about a block west of I-57 off of the Highway 16 exit. Surprisingly it was a little difficulty to find the correct exit off the Interstate as there are two Mattoon exits. We were arriving from the South and... More

My husband was traveling for work and this was about a mile from his destination. Staff was friendly, the breakfast staff was super friendly and was interacting with a small boy which seemed to totally make his day! Comfy bed and nice size restroom

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.
