I check in today and have to wait on the girl at the front desk who is ranting to someone on the phone about the night guy who didn't seem to do something right...something about dirty rooms, reg cards, two...

My partner's mother lives in Forest City, and we generally visit her twice a year. We have probably stayed at the Holiday Inn Express ten times over the last five years. The rooms are well equipped, clean, and spacious, and it has been a good haven for us. However, our most recent visits have revealed some management problems that need... More

It's a good little HI Experss. Modern decor. Very clean other than a dark stain in front of the fridge...bu the carpet is such that you can barely notice it.

We usually travel to Forest City 3-4 times per year to visit relatives...and have always stayed at Marriott properties 30-45 minutes away. We decided to take a chance (based on trip advisor reviews not a big chance) and are happy we did. Very laid back and friendly staff, spacious room with comfortable beds and good AC.

Nice newer hotel located conveniently nearby restaurants and an Aldi grocery store. I stay here frequently during business travel, and the rooms are always clean. The rooms have a spacious layout. There is a complimentary breakfast including biscuits, pastries, fruit, yogurt, eggs, and coffee. It's a great place to stay!

Terrific Staff. Very clean room. General maintenance is kept up with. Breakfast was good. No pool which was sort of a drag but not their fault if they just don't have the real estate to incorporate one. Great place to stay if you're staying in Forest City. Small town hotels (even name brands) can be scary. But this was really... More
