my confirmation #64245665 My stay at the hotel was excellent from start to finish. Quick and pleasant check in, clean and nice rooms, pleasant and helpful staff, and a great breakfast in the morning. A well-appointed hotel for a very modest price. I would highly recommend it for anyone staying in the Hillsborough area.

The Hillsborough NC Holiday Inn Express is a comfortable, medium-priced hotel with good beds, a small but well-equipped weight room, and a good breakfast. The proprietors are friendly and efficient. I have stayed there several times, and will stay there in the future.

Staff was very attentive and cordial at this hotel. Was here for a week for business, and it felt very comfortable. Located in a quiet, but convenient area, this HIE did not disappoint. Breakfast was good each morning, good wi-fi connection. The staff was great as well. Will stay here again!!

My husband and I were on vacation with our six children. The service was incredible with extremely hospitable workers. The breakfast was awesome, waffles, and plenty to eat. The front desk host was amazing.

We got our room July 4th and July 5th from Hotwire - it was a great rate and we chose it as it was between the coast and Portland. We went and got a pedicure and some local women there asked why'd we'd stay all the way out in Hillsboro if there for a Portland vacation. I do have to... More

We spent a week in this hotel and were very pleased with our stay. The hotel was spotless, the beds were extremely comfortable and all the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was what you would expect for this kind of hotel and did not disappoint. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit.

The HIX in Hillsborough is not in the best neighborhood, however, it provides its guests with a quiet place to rest. The hotel provides basic amenities for its guests. The ceiling in our bathroom was badly in need of repair due to water damage. The staff was attentive and courteous.

Fantastic, friendly and accommodating staff, very clean room/bathroom, breakfast was amazing (many options, fresh food, and staff kept it clean & stocked). Best review comes from my 4 year old daughter..."can we stay at this hotel every time we go on vacation?"
