Stayed at this hotel one night on business. Hotel was clean. Everyone I interacted with was extremely friendly - front desk helped switch me from a double queen to king with no issues, the woman working the breakfast was extremely helpful and pleasant. Room was clean but a little dated; but nothing horrible. TV is not a flat screen so... More

I checked in on 6/20/2013 for one night. I reserved my room online which caused problems for the Hotel staff when checking in. They had the wrong credit card on hand. They worked to fix it and I thought they had to later ding out they had not. The room was large but had a "minimist" feel to it. Outdated... More

The hotel is updated and clean with plenty of room in the breakfast area and lobby for chatting or relaxing with friends. When we arrived our room was ready around 3. Oddly, even though the room was clean there was small curly black hair all over one of the pillows and the door did not lock when shut. Anyone could... More

Stayed here in 2012. Not a bad hotel. Clean, staff was friendly. Can't complain. I was only there a couple of days but was a pleasant experience. I know there aren't many places in town to stay but still wouldn't have a problem picking this hotel even if there were other options. Good location and access was east to where... More

The only real hotel in town and we only stay here b/c our family all live nearby and its easier for us to just stay in a hotel when visiting. The Breakfast is DISGUSTING! Don't bother.

My husband/family travel internationally about twice a year so we do travel frequently. This hotel is your average Holiday Inn Express. It's fine. There really aren't any other suitable options in Sparta or even close to Sparta. So quite simply this is where you want to stay. We live just 20 minutes from this hotel and stayed the first time...

Not much to choose from in this small town so I would suggest to spend the extra money and stay at this Very Nice property! Other hotels are Motels! Great clean rooms and very nice pool and breakfast! Friendly Staff

So, you stay here because you have too. If people had a choice they would have to step it up a notch. It seem that it's a newer property, but it's not well taken care of. I had 2 lights out in my room and the elevator was absolutely disgusting. The floor looks to not have been cleaned in years.... More

This Holiday Inn Express offers large rooms that are well equipped, quiet and comfortable. It compares well with hotels in much larger communities. No complaints whatsoever .

This is, without a doubt, currently the nicest hotel in Sparta. However, I think they could benefit from a little competition. The service and housekeeping standards were fine. That is, they were completely acceptable and nothing more. The front desk staff wasn't rude, but they weren't that nice (a feeling I got just from phone conversations with desk clerks weeks... More
