It was a quiet place to stay, dinner just down the street along with gas. Staff were great, rooms clean, breakfast was just enough. Used gym and pool. Wool stop again when traveling through. Wool be staying on way home next week.

I used rewards points to book this stay on our way back to Wisconsin. I used the IHG App to book the hotel around 5 pm, the room was ready for us at check-in around 11pm. The male employee, can't remember his name, was very friendly and courteous. The room was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast... More

Using the IHG app on my iPhone, I found the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites and book a room for the night, a true case of serendipity. First, the hotel is located just off Lincoln Avenue and the interstate. Thus, it was... More

Clean room, public areas, pool and spa tub. Plenty of variety to complimentary breakfast. Great location to reach anywhere in the area. Easy to keep your vehicle within eyesight. Pleasant interactions with desk staff.

I received a great price on HotWire, and then learned it was this hotel. I went to C-U to attend the baseball regionals, but rain cancelled games and I went to check in to the hotel. The front desk staff was great and kindly accommodated me for showing up a bit early. I was very impressed with the hotel, very... More

The front desk may have been the most friendly we have ever experienced. Very helpful in every way. After our check in they never forgot our names or why we were there to visit our Granddaughter for her graduation from Vet School. Helped us with suggestions to where to buy a mattress for her bed.

Only stayed for 1 night but it was a great stay. The staff was professional, friendly and helpful. The room was clean. I really enjoyed my stay. The location is also perfect to get around. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to the area for meetings.

My fiancé and I attended a wedding reception here and booked a room to stay in after the reception was over. The hotel seems a bit old and could use a facelift. At checkin I was told my room wasn't ready so I needed to wait. (it was right at check in time) After awhile I saw other guests checking... More
