This hotel was an unexpected find in a small town. Everything was neat and clean, the staff friendly and the room comfortable. Our only surprise was how easily we could hear the people next door. We slept with the bathroom fan running, and that drowned out the noise. Very thin walls, maybe. Breakfast was hot and good, and we found... More

I would highly recommend this hotel. From your greeting at the front desk, to all the staff, there wasn't a person who wasn't helpful and extremely friendly. It may be out in the middle of nowhere, but it is the place to stay, extremely clean! A special thanks to Diana for making our breakfast experience just a little bit brighter.

Overall, our stay at the Sparta HIE was great. Check in and out were a breeze. Housekeeping kept our room spotless and stocked with clean towels. Diana and Pauline did an excellent job getting our morning breakfast ready. They both understood that we get an early start and accomodated our needs.

Even above the usually outstanding Holiday Inn Express chain. Staff could not be more pleasant and accomodating. If you are reading this review, stop looking and stay here, I travel often and know quality. Rooms were spotless and breakfast had the extra southern hospitality included. Thank you!
