Staff was very personable & entered into conversation with us without seeming rushed or bothered. Hotel amenities and comfort of the beds were exceptional. Angie Minnick's customer service was also exceptional. When the staff learned we were there for a funeral, they immediately offered their condolences & offered any help they could give. We plan on staying at this location... More

Stayed here during the US Open. My company had 6 rooms. The staff was so nice and helpful. The rooms were perfect for our purposes and quite clean. We typically stay at higher end properties but the Holiday Inn Express in Sanford was a very good alternative. Would absolutely stay there again.

Front desk personnel were always smiling and very welcoming. We came to town for a last minute visit to our son stationed at Pope Air Base and were lucky to stay here. Room was very clean (and I am picky about this). Internet worked and was not slow like in most places. Sweet tea in lobby was great! Will definitely... More

This is a nice hotel if you are not traveling with a pet. The rooms that were previously smoking are now pet rooms. The first room we were given smelled like someone had just smoked in it. The 2nd was a little better, but not much. Very musty smokey smell. Our friends who did not have pets had rooms that... More

My daughter and I stayed here without a reservation. The room was clean and comfortable. You could walk to a restaurant. We didn't get woke up by a bunch of noises. The breakfast was nice and so was the lobby room. The people working the desk were very awesome too!

We stayed at this hotel last Friday night and had a taste of southern hospitality. Our room was spacious and spotless. The next morning we were greeted at breakfast by Irma in the breakfast room.

The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. The beds were comfortable and the extra pillows we requested were in the room. Clean refrigerator and microwave. Ample toiletry supplies in case you forgot something. The staff was very friendly and assisted with finding gluten-free dining. We arrived with a small dog and were given a "pet care package"...
