Good breakfast, Diana runs a great shop. Rooms clean and well appointed. Pool, hot tub and workout area are real nice. Free wi fi is strong and a plus. Very near shopping and restaurants. Pricing was good.

We had the opportunity to stay a week at the Holiday Inn in Sparta, IL with our McKenzie Shooting Sports Team. This was our second week long stay here. This is by far the friendliest staff of any hotel that we have ever stayed. Terry S. at the front desk went above and beyond to make sure that we were... More

First, let me say the hotel itself was nice. Clean rooms, friendly breakfast lady and good breakfast. We checked in late on a Friday night. My husband, son and myself. We were tired and ready to sleep. Apparently none of us flipped the little lock thing over to secure the door. Imagine our surprise when someone opened our door, and... More

During a family trip to see the Arch, we had the opportunity to stay at this hotel. The service is super friendly and helpful ( shout out to the brunette at the front desk), and a special thanks to Ms. Diana - whose breakfast is delicious and fresh - and whose hospitality makes everyone feel welcome. The rooms are comfortable,... More

Clean, comfortable room. Refrigerator in room. Breakfast was good and a nice size breakfast room. Only 3 floors to hotel. Stayed on third floor and was quiet. In the Evening had fresh bake cookies in lobby. Good location. Restaurants in the area.

It's been a year since my last business stay in Sparta at the holiday inn. I was pleased to see that the hotel has made significant improvements in the past 12 months. The most significant and important issue corrected was the service at the front desk. The staff was a complete 180, now very helpful and attentive. Rooms could still... More

Holiday Inn Express in Sparta IL is a clean hotel with a very nice indoor pool and hot tub. The breakfast was great when Diana is there to make sure everything is taken care of... The rooms could update their TV's but all and all it is a good value.

We arrived on Wednesday and stayed until Saturday. The room was clean. The only problem was the maid service neglected to give us new towels, shampoo and lotion. The second day they did not give us towels again and left the trash in the bathroom. The breakfast person Diana was fabulous! Very attentive!
