This HIE was what you would expect of a HIE as far as the facility is concerned; it was clean, well maintained, and in good condition. The hospitality set it apart from the rest. Every member of the staff I encountered was exceptionally polite, cheerful, and accommodating. We had one instance in the room where we asked for staff support... More

A customer friendly hotel, very clean, good breakfast, a hospitality evening time with beer, wine, lemonade and snacks. The room layout is excellent, the lobby is nice but the best part of this hotel is the friendly greeting, making one feel welcomed.

I originally went to the Days Inn because it was ranked highest on TripAdvisor. It was on the far east side of town with no nearby restaurants. So I went to the Holiday Inn which had at least two restaurants nearby. I got a room with no problem and was happy to find out that Monday through Thursday they have... More

We stayed one night, and did not have a reservation. The Clerk who checked us in was very accommodating and friendly. The morning desk help, not so much so. The breakfast was your typical Holiday Inn Express breakfast. Always love the free newspaper! The bed was comfortable. The bathroom...well....it wasn't really dirty, but sort of. The bathroom door was dirty.... More

I was impressed by how customer focused they were. The front desk was pleasant and offered me a free bottled water. They put me in a room that was distant from other groups that were staying there for noise issues. The room was clean and comfortable. I was also making mental notes about the detail cleaning they were doing regularly... More

I was here for business as well. I did not make the reservation and didn't know much about the area. The hotel is under some renovation so the parking spaces were limited. That was about the only bad point. The staff was very friendly upon arrival. Rooms were spacious. Beds were a little too firm for my liking but I... More

Clean rooms come with this no frills property. Meeting rooms are moderate but usable. Well worth the money if looking for a simple nights stay. Friendly staff. Have a look you won't be disappointed here.

The hotel is pretty good, great price and very comfortable, but really annoying to get to. There's only one way in and the roads have no U-turn signs. So, pretty annoying. But the hotel itself is really good. The beds were comfortable, the room was spacious, the bathroom was clean, and the Wi-Fi worked pretty well.
