I was in town for a conference, and checked in around 4:30pm; the staff was friendly and gave me their undivided attention. The room was clean and the bed was heavenly. What I really enjoyed was the Manager's Reception, which was a great way to unwind after a busy day of meetings. The breakfast was standard continental with a few... More

Nice room, good breakfast, nice people. Couldn't use the pool due to thunderstorms, so no comment on that. Restaurant close by, skeeter barn, good food. Only complaint was the hallway noise, but that really is not the fault of the hotel.

This motel is awesome. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. It is off the interstate a ways so is quiet. The front desk people are helpful and friendly and the breakfast has everything you could possibly want. A 5 star place to stay for sure!

The H I E itself was nice. The room met all our criteria, clean, good beds, good shower. We even had a nice view from our window. Here's the problem....at 5:00 am someone in the room above was taking a shower. The sound of the pipes was like there was someone blowing a horn in our room! It sure woke... More

I would like to start by apologizing for the noise issue that you experienced while staying with us. We strive to make each stay relaxing and unnecessary noise is unacceptable. We will look into the plumbing and see if there is a way to make the pipe noise quieter for all guests. We do hope that you will reconsider staying... More

My wife and I stopped at this hotel with three grandchildren. The staff was very accommodating in terms of our needs and the room was spacious and clean. The children really enjoyed the pool and the fitness room. The breakfast was great, as it usually is at HIE.

We arrived later in the evening after many hours on the road, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was much nicer than we expected; large and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool & hot tub. Excellent breakfast. Great value for the quality of the room and extras.

The Holiday Inn Express brand is very predictable in most cases for newly constructed hotels. This is a newer one off of 80, a middle point between the Rockies and Midwest.

Excellent, clean, modern rooms with a large flat screen TV, free wi-fi, AWESOME BREAKFAST, quick check in and a place I highly recommend for business or pleasure travelers. Appreciate that the staff kept control of the young baseball players who thought they could run the hallways! WRONG, staff responded and made sure the other guests had a quiet, peaceful experience.
