The main part of the room had enough light around the edge of the room. Three lamps were on the switch by the door; including the two bedside lamps. The light in the bathroom was over the doorway. Very little light reach the shower stall. The vanity is in the main room. The room was clean and housekeeping did a... More

We stay here when visiting our daughter at Etown. It's close to campus and rooms are celan. The rooms were on small size, but staff was nice and courteous. There are not a lot of options in immediate area and does the job for a night or two.

Also tried to charge us $250 extra because they found a cigarette butt in the trash can, even though no one was smoking in the room...snakes... some nerve charging over $200 to begin with check your credit card people...never dealt with anyone like this. 2...

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

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
