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!

I stopped here because I had some rewards points and didn't want to drive anymore. This place is in the middle of nowhere but the hotel is great. It's quiet and clean. The room was nice. The best part of the morning breakfast. It was a Sunday for me. Diana was the manager in charge of breakfast and was wonderful... More

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
