We stay at the HIE in Morehead about eight nights a year on our way to and from visits to Pennsylvania from Illinois, and we've been doing that for almost ten years. We chose it because it's about halfway, it's dog friendly, and we think HIE is good value. We have always been satisfied with our stays there. But this... More

No real complains with this IHE. No issues with smoke smell as discussed in other reviews. Comfortable beds. The rooms are not huge, but sufficient. The staff was kind and dealt well with a rush of customers and a storm that knocked out the satellite. Everything was as clean as you would expect. My only issue was the sound the... More

After traveling for over 8 hours straight, for the third time in a weekend, my wife and I needed a place to rest. The Holiday Inn Express in Morehead was very accommodating.

It can really make for a long and stressful day, when you have been driving for hours. It can also be really nice when you can find that one place where you can rest and feel comfortable and even a place where you might feel at home. I am glad you found that place here.

Quick check in, only 2 floors but there is an elevator. Breakfast is ready sooner than at most places. Indoor pool. Next door is a wonderful Mexican restaurant. Speedy check out. Flat screen TV's, small bathroom, but very clean and well stocked

What a surprise to finally find a hotel pool that was heated to a comfortable temperature. The front desk staff was very friendly and checked us in very quickly. The room was handicapped accessible as requested and was set up very well. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was very could including the cinnamon rolls.
