Despite the glowing reviews, this is an average/below average Holiday Inn Express. Staff was friendly and helpful, but we only know this because we had to ask for things that should have been in the room. Rooms were OK, a bit worn, a bit musty. Pool had a strong odor, but water was OK. It's not worth the detour to... More

We stayed here twice on our trip from OH to MA. This hotel was almost exactly halfway between both points. The breakfast was nice. The checkout time wasn't until noon, and the night staff was willing to negotiate on the rate. Plus they were very sweet and attentive to our request for pillows, ashtrays, blankets, or whatever. The hotel is... More

Very odd location. Good thing I had my GPS or I would have been convinced I was going the wrong way and bound to end up in a farmer's field! Besides that: very easy check-in, immacuately clean, quiet room, fantastic pool for my kids (warm and clean, and at least at 8AM, well-stocked with towels), nice fitness room. We got... More

The four of us really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Syracuse/Fairgrounds. Although away from the city, it is very popular and I beleive that is because the staff make you feel comfortable and they go out their way to assist you in any way they can. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and I will... More

From the moment of making reservations via phone to arrival to departure, I experienced the best of the best. The Holiday Inn Express staff was always professional, courteous, and went out of their way to make a tiring day a place where one could rest in the comfort of large, spotless rooms. Additionally, every morning, a continental breakfast was provided... More
