I also work at a Holiday Inn Express property so I automatically came in with a set of expectations. First thing is that the staff doesn't have standard uniforms. 3-11 shift was wearing a navy blue polo, exposed tattoos and piercings, 7-3 shift was wearing a white button up shirt with a black vest and the audit shift was wearing...

I want to share this find with fellow travelers who traverse the I-75 corridor through Ohio. What a find! The Holiday Inn Express & Suites on 851 Commerce Center Dr. in Franklin, OH (Dayton South) is a quiet, clean, efficient, and relaxing place to come to after the heavy traffic between Cincinnati and Dayton. The fresh cookies and the smell... More

Extremely poor service. Had to make repeated requests for the room to be cleaned; for clean towels, soap, and shampoo; for coffee and accompanying additives (creamer, etc.) I was told by night staff several times that those things were the responsibility of day staff, not nighttime,and therefore they couldn't help me. Out of frustration one evening, I told the night... More

Just a quick stop here for the night. Clean and comfortable, friendly staff, no issues. It is just off of I-75 for travelers, but there was NO road noise at all. Right across the side road is a Walmart and it was super easy to refuel since there are two stations right there. Did not eat the breakfast though, left... More

My wife and I don't travel a lot and had never stayed at any Holiday Inn before but will in the future. We were totally pleased with our stay at this motel! Room was quiet, clean, and beds very comfortable with many pillows both firm and soft. The hot breakfast was excellent, especially the hot cinnamon rolls! The staff were... More

My husband and I stayed here last night because we were attending a concert which was only about a half mile away. We stay at Holiday Inn Express hotels often and are a member of their program. This hotel was VERY clean. The room was spotless and very spacious. The bed was large, very large and I loved it! (... More

We had originally booked a room down the street but it was so bad we couldn't stay. We found this one and it was a pleasant sight after the previous hotel. The manager was super friendly and the breakfast was very complete and delicious. As far as the room goes, it was very clean and comfortable, though the toilet didn't... More

My family of four spent one night in this hotel on a 10 hour drive from the east coast back to the midwest b/c it was conveniently located off the highway. We booked a queen double room and were able to use our points to cover the entire cost. After having spent a week squeezed into a very tiny 2... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on our drive from ON to FL. It was a very clean and comfortable stay. I loved that they offer both firm and soft pillows!
