Appreciate that Benjamin was cheerful and helpful upon our arrival at check-in, and the rooms and general areas of the hotel were clean and generally in good condition. A few really minor things, each of which alone wouldn't be an issue, but together will have me looking for a different place to stay the next time around: First, a sign... More

I booked this hotel through "Hotwire" for a quick stopover. I don't usually deviate from my 5-star hotels, but since this was more of a necessity stop, I didn't want to spend the extra money (There also are not any 5-star's in this town). As far as actual star ratings, it would be accurate to say this is probably a... More

We enjoyed our stay here. We took advantage of the pool, which was sufficient and clean. My eyes did start to hurt after an hour of just sitting at a table (I never went into the pool). I'm thinking the chlorine was high? Either way, it didn't affect the kids. Beautiful lobby and the beds were firm (which we love).... More

We stayed at this hotel over Labor Day weekend because we got a deal on hotwire.com. It's pretty new and in a good location - walking distance to Walmart, Panera Bread, Pizza Hut, and some other retail and restaurants. The lobby is beautiful. There's a free breakfast, that was just OK - but better than most places. The cinnamon rolls... More

Was my halfway point on a recent trip and got a great deal through Hotwire. It is a typical Holiday Inn. The bed was comfortable, and the room was quiet. Good water pressure and hot water in the shower. The WiFi worked well. Breakfast was hot and ready the next morning and included which is a huge bonus in my... More

Had a family reunion, but 5 people got scolded twice for moving a chair in the lobby and one man for having a beer in a cozy. Told the man to put his drink in a clear glass! Couldn't write the real truth on H.I. site, as they remove, edit and condense anything they don't like. They offered to let... More

We wanted to break up our trip to St. Louis instead of making a straight drive. We were fortunate enough to stay here. We were able to upgrade to a king suite for an extra $10, which was well worth it. The room was very comfortable and clean. The pool was a little too cold, but they just drained the... More

I booked our room through hotwire. We had a great price and were very pleased with the room. The room had a fridge and microwave. The decor had been updated. Beds were comfortable and rooms clean. We did use the hot tub and it was fine. We even ordered pizza and ate outside on one of the tables. The breakfast... More

I am partial to Holiday Inn Express as their properties seem to be a cut above the rest in this mid price range... Not disappointed at all... Check in always quick & easy with pleasant front desk employees. Ample parking, great location, well appointed rooms.....& VERY CLEAN.. The flat screen TV in our room was huge- probably the biggest TV... More

This hotel is pretty new and has an impressive double stairway to the 2nd floor. Rooms were large and comfortable. Very clean inside and out. Much better price than the Marriott hotel where my daughter and her family stayed. However, the breakfast might have been a little better - perhaps adding pancakes or waffles.
