The location was my favorite part of the stay. Hotel is in a rural setting but only a minute from the highway. Hotel was clean but the room smelled a little off, maybe a former smoking room? Our window was cracked and fixed with packaging tape. Breakfast was good, staff was pleasant. Decent hotel but a little overpriced.

We came here for a soccer match. I could not believe the price of this hotel. I even remarked when checking in that I paid the same price to stay at a resort in Maui. The girl at the front desk said they raise prices when the area is busy. Well I bet you do. We wont be staying there... More

To start, the checkin was friendly and quick. My room was a short walk as it was on the first floor. I immediately noticed the smell in the hotel which intensified once I got into the room. After a while, I became used to it and only noticed it upon re-entering. The room itself was nice but not very well... More

I've stayed here a number of times over the years…Holiday Inn Express is what it is…Usually convenient and a good value for an overnight stay. Not this place….They have again raised their rates. It cost me over $170.00 with tax (local business rate) to stay here. Way too much money. Regular rate would have been around $190.00. They are pretty... More

Our soccer team was FORCED to use this hotel for a soccer tournament which supplies several hotels from a travel agency they partner up with. We paid $150/night with a 2 night minimum. We arrived at about 9:00 pm and the front desk man was not friendly at all. He read through his required "script" and when finished we asked... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express during an AAU basketball tournament. We had a very nice stay and the staff was very accommodating to the many families with teenagers who were at the hotel. I loved the fresh cookies and always- full- glass canister of lemon ice water which was so refreshing whenever we came back to the hotel.... More

Stayed here to visit colleges for one night this month. For the price we paid ($100) it was a great deal. The hotel was maintained, comfortable and the staff couldn't be any nicer. I was amazed by the large breakfast room with free breakfast (lots of choices and everything tasted good and was replenished over and over). The ladies who... More

I love a Holiday Inn- you always know what you get! The staff here were so friendly. Rooms were large. My 12 year old son and i stayed here and had a large bed each. Free wifi. Great selection (too much!) at the breakfast buffet. Only problems were a few bugs here and there in the main entrances/halls, but we... More

We recently stayed at this hotel to stop in the middle of a long drive. The pros were: they had a room and the hotel was very near to the interstate. The cons were: we supposedly got the very last room and they charged quite a bit, the breakfast room was incredibly crowded and we ended up needing to skip... More

My husband wanted to get away. So we looked at prices and they were very reasonable. When we arrived we were greeted and checked in. We asked where our room was and since it was on the other side and my husband smoked we wanted to be close to a door to allow him easy access to go outside. The... More
