My work requires about 90% travel. I have stayed at lots of hotels in lots of cities. This Holiday Inn Express is definitely a gem to stay at. My king room has a sofa to relax on while watching the nice flat screen tv. I've never had a bad stay here.

Glad to be back at the Holiday Inn Express in Sanford. Starting with Angie and Misty, the entire staff is first class and attentive. Always clean and comfortable. Love the fresh baked cookies! The breakfast area is always so well kept and the food exceptional for a free breakfast. Irma does a great job.

I have to say that the "Holiday Inn" chain of hotels has really improved in the recent couple of years. This particular hotel was clean, but good for a one-night stay, not an extended stay as there was no microwave. It was clean though.

While visiting family in the area, I had a very comfortable stay at this hotel. Beds were super comfy, bathroom was nice and clean, hot breakfast was plentiful. Overall, it was nicely decorated. I will plan to stay here again.

We visited our daughter and her family. We have stayed here in the past. We stayed for three nights. The Hotel seems to be refreshed each time we stay here. Everything was what all travelers want. The room was clean. The staff were helpful and friendly. What more can you ask for?

Very good place to stay. Breakfast was good food every morning. The rooms are nice and clean. The hotel staff is very helpful, and friendly. The fresh brewed ice tea that is in the lobby was very refreshing. The heated pool was very relaxing ever chance I had to swim. I would defiantly recommend this hotel. If I'm ever in... More

Muddy entrance, muddy lobby, muddy elevator. The second floor sounds like an animal clinic with barking and whining dogs. I was awakened before 5am which was way too early, by barking dogs and I was on the 3rd floor. Write this one off of your travel list of places to stay in Sanford, NC

We have a golden retriever and a German shepherd and they travel with us. This hotel is THE BEST! They were very accommodating to put us in a room that was next to the exit which makes it easy to bring two large pets in your room. They also have a secure fenced in pet area where you can unleash... More

I've been here for the last 2 weeks and the staff are very friendly. The breakfast is what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. The rooms are clean and the housekeeping is on top of their game here. Of I'm ever in the area for pleasure I'll definitely stay here again!
