These folks do a good job of keeping the place clean and inviting and for the price probably on of the best values in town. I stayed here many many times over a three month period and tried a few other places but the level of service and value kept me coming back.

Hotel was clean- wish they can move the breakfast time to 6.30am on the weekends for those of us that are starting early on our trips. Overall the gentleman at the breakfast lady were very helpful in getting us for breakfast before the 7am start time. That saves us another $15.00 we would have spent for breakfast outside the hotel.

My main complaint with all Holiday Inn properties is that they do not have a small "store" area to buy water or snacks. All other hotel chains that I stay at always have this amenity. I was directed to vending machines on alternating floors (which always seem to be empty). My first impression of my room was that it was... More

This was our first time at a Holiday Inn Express and it was a good one. Room was clean and included fridge and microwave. You even have a choice of soft or firm pillows, which was a nice touch. Bed was very comfy and room had a very forceful shower. Located near an exit, it is near shopping and restaurants.... More

Pros: Good size room with comfortable beds; microwave, mini fridge (although it froze anything we put in it), breakfast, and friendly staff. Close location to family we were visiting, that's why we picked this hotel. Cons: Price per night was too high for this type of hotel. House keeping needs to dust furnature & TV, clean bathroom better (dirty hand... More

We were very pleased with our stay. The rooms were large and the beds were comfortable. My room was a bit warm but the other room was nice and cold. Which was important because it was a very warm and humid night. We got a good rate and the hotel was close to the state capital building.

We've always had good luck with Holiday Inn and this one didn't disappoint. The place looks near new-- there must have been some updating in the recent past. Breakfast was good. We would have liked to have used the pool at the Gold's Gym but they will not allow children under five.

The location is great and the bed was comfortable. Overall the rooms are overpriced. When you walk into the room you can tell they Are not throughly cleaned.
