This was my first time stopping here and is the best option in Forest. The staff was pleasant and it had all the amenities you would expect from Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast was decent; about the same with any other HIE. However they need to procure more luggage trollies.

I have stayed in the HIE atleast a half dozen times over the past year and they have all been great. Even during the recent renovations the staff was great and always took every opportunity to go above and beyond to be helpful and accommodating. Breakfast is great and offers a wide variety of food and drinks. Muliple food options... More

This property offers friendly service, clean rooms, and more than meets your basic travelling needs. The hotel is very conveniently located - within walking distance of several fast food eating options and Walmart. They offer a modest continental breakfast that will get you started. The best part of the hotel is the friendly staff.

I have stayed at the Forest, MS Holiday Inn Express six times over the past two years. It is one of my favorite places to stay. Maria at the check-in desk always welcomes guest with a big smile and sets the tone for southern hospitality at this location. The rooms and lobby have just been re-modeled and are very nice....

Will stay there again. Was there for just one night but the service and the cleanliness of the hotel was amazing. The breakfast was very good and all the staff was very attentive. I would definitely come back when I go back on my road trips.

Stayed one night (4-24-13). In the Forest area for some family business prior to attending a business meeting in Memphis. The staff and the facility could not have been nicer. Upon arrival, the front dest was able to "bump" us to a larger room to give us, (4 adults, 1 room), more space. The room was clean, well appointed, and... More

while traveling to Florida at Thanksgiving time I always stay either in Vicksburg or Forest as they're good stopping points for me on the first leg of my trip. Very clean room & I always reserve a handicap accessable room. At my age it's hard to get in/out of a tub to take a shower after traveling that day. wonderful... More

Check in was quick, friendly greeting, warm popcorn in the lobby. King suite was clean and well appointed. Breakfast was excellent. Although my room faced the highway, it was quiet. I appreciated the fitness room's recumbent bicycle.

You just can't go wrong with a Holiday Inn Express. They are always clean, great breakfast, and the lady at the front desk was great. My family stopped here for the night on our way back home in Texas after a two week vacation and would deffinatly stay here again.

Checked in with my name and told the clerk I had a reservation. (online prepaid)When she asked for the card I made the reservation with, I thought it was for "incidentals.". She ran my card for the room again! No paperwork then or when I left. When I gave her my room key she took it and waved goodbye. Since... More
