Our son's wedding was Sunday 5/17 so we had multiple guests with different room requirements and scheduling. Maryann handled everything to perfection and the front desk staff were superb, especially Chris. The rooms were superb, and there are many amenities such as the indoor pool, the outside horseshoe pit, and the hot deluxe breakfast was abundant and delicious. Definitely a... More

I stayed at this HI Express several times over the last month for business. The staff was extremely courteous and responsive to any questions. I found the rooms to be spacious, clean and comfortable.

Two night stay. Check in was simple and typical to most HI's. Nice lobby and breakfast area that was well taken care of in the morning. Oatmeal, eggs, bacon, cereals, bagels, fruits and your typical coffee, tea, juices, etc...Can't complain at all since it's much easier to eat there than go out and find something. Room was reasonable size with... More

This HIExpress is your typical, older HIE except for....the lobby; It was large, warm and fairly welcoming with a sitting area and gas fireplace and they had a good selection of drinks/snacks to buy with an extra large fridge in the room. The beds were ok...sheets were hard and rather old/bathroom was very small. Again, your average HIE.
