We were here in July, for one night (just passing through) and thank goodness for that. The staff was very helpful and everything was clean so I had high hopes..........then bed time came! The mattresses on these beds are as worn out as any dorm room in America. After driving for 650 miles that day the beds were so uncomfortable... More

Decent hotel, outstanding tasty breakfast with wide selection Very personable gal in charge of dining area. Downside is the bed was like sleeping on the floor! Otherwise, a typical mass produced room, so I think, overpriced for what I got.

This Holiday Inn Express is really no different than the rest. The staff of course were friendly and very helpful. The grounds and lobby were well kept. They were able to accommodate me at a moments notice with my reservation. My room was upgraded from a double to a king and smelled fresh and clean. Great right? Wrong. Definitely needs... More

Checked in and discovered that this property was originally owned by another hotel chain and then converted to a Holiday Inn Express. It is located in a downtown area, a few miles from the I80 interchange. The ceilings in the room are probably 12 feet high which makes them feel spacious, but actually creates echos and makes the room seem... More

Staff is very friendly and welcoming. Rooms are very clean and kept up-to-date. Completely met our needs and expectations for the 5 rooms we needed for a family get together. Conveniently located close to downtown. We have stayed at this hotel many times and have always been completely satisfied.

Well pleased with our overnight stay in Newton. Our room was good sized (king bed with sofa and workstation), very clean and quiet. We are very conscious of the cleanliness of motels, especially the bathrooms, and this one was spotless. Very often the bathroom floor corners gather all types of crud. This wasn't the case here. We didn't use the... More
