Looked for a place for a weekend getaway. Found it here. Jacuzzi king suite was very nice... except for the elevator control room was just outside our door. Sounded like a flushing toilet. That and the WiFi connection was horrible. Ended up staying on 4g most of the stay. That's all the complaints I have. Oh wait, one more. There... More

This hotel still almost new though is slipping some as it ages. The staff could be a bit nicer at times and better trained. The hotel room and hall wreaked of a stench in the morning and every time someone closed a door or walked down the hall the door rattled which awoke me early. Overall it is still a... More

Stayed here for a long weekend while in the area. Was a little leery from some less than savory experiences in small town HIX in the past. Was very pleasantly surprised. Granted, this stay didn't require much but the queen suite was clean, not musty, bathroom was actually clean, and the breakfast was, well.....just the way HIX is. Front desk... More

I have stayed at this facility numerous times in November & December over the past years while working in Rutherford County Schools. It has always been an excellent stay, but this year I was blown away by the overall excellent customer service across the entire staff. From my check by a very attentive and expeditious young man that was great... More

Never been to this area before so wasn't sure what to expect. This room is one of the cleanest hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. The front desk staff was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and in helping with wifi logon. Will definitely stay here again.

Nice, clean place. Great breakfast! Room 114. King bed, kitchenette, whirlpool. Bed was very comfortable. Did hear children running in room overhead. But, kids will be kids. Elevator at room so you do hear some noise. But overall id stay again

We stayed at the hotel recently because we were in town for a funeral and let me just say that this is one of the nicest Holiday Inn Expresses we have been to.
