Our sons wedding was held in Shelby, NC this past weekend. We chose The Holiday Inn Express for all of the out of town wedding guest. The hotel is kept very very clean. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The breakfast each morning was appreciated and really very good with omelets, sausage and gravy, fresh biscuits, muffins and pastries.... More

The staff at the hotel were great to work with! The hotel manager Karen has always been so helpful and kind when we have stayed at this location. The room has always been clean and the staff goes the extra mile for their guest. I highly recommend a stay at this hotel if you need to stay in Shelby.

I originally come from Cleveland County, NC and still have tons of family in the area. I'd like to come down more frequently but I do come down often enough to be pretty familiar with what the town has to offer in terms of hotels, restaurants, etc., etc. I was happy to see that Holiday Inn Express had come into...

This hotel is OK but the musty smell in room 113 was a bit overwhelming. I was going to mention it to the front desk upon checking out but didn't see the clerk anywhere. Also, if you say that breakfast starts at 6:30( which is too late of a start anyway) then have it out and ready to go at... More

A group of us from our church stayed her while doing mission work. The whole hotel was very clean and had fresh,modern decor. Breakfast was full of delicous cinammon rolls, pancakes, fruit, eggs, bacon, etc. The pillows on the bed are labeled. Two are "soft" and two are "firm".The maid was extra friendly and went out of her way, to... More

Chose this hotel based on previous reviews. Good of this hotel and bad of other hotels in the area. Once we figured out how to get here from the historic uptown Shelby we realized it wasn't as far from town as we thought. We ate BBQ for lunch and wood fired pizza for dinner and recommend you go in to... More

A comfortable hotel with modern room amenities - clean facility and conscientious staff. Multiple dining options nearby. You would have to drive to get to a convenience store for snacks etc in your room.

I stayed at this Holiday Inn when I most recently came to Shelby, NC for a family member's Homegoing Services and the front desk staff was very pleasantly accommodating. The room was clean and so was the bathroom. The hotel is situated in an area that was conducive for walking to a Shopping Mall and Movies, as well as Ruby... More

I know they don't rate the Holiday Inn Express using the diamond system, but if they did, this little jewel would rate five! You are greeted at check-in by a cheerful desk clerk and the smell of chocolate chip cookies baking. The rooms are always clean and well prepared( we have stayed here many times). Morning coffee and breakfast is... More
