This hotel has a management problem! The staff was wonderful but terribly overworked. The rooms were clean but stained everywhere and the fixtures in the bathrooms were so ill fitted that the mildew problems were rampant. I stayed here while my husband was in the hospital and the staff was very good to me, even finding me another room when... More

As HI Express hotels go, this one would be low on my scale. The staff is friendly, but the hotel is old and outdated. Not worth the rates charged in summer. The noise level from motorcycles is loud, really loud and it continues well into the night. Room AC's are old and loud, too. At least they work, but this... More

We arrived on Wednesday evening after booking our room just moments before (via Expedia.com). Evva was pleasant and very quick to get us checked in. When were forced to stay in a Smoking Room and I asked that we be moved (to non-smoking) should one come available. The next morning Evva was able to get us moved. Very friendly and... More

We stay at HIE whenever possible. My husband uses them when he travels. No fridge or microwave. We had to throw out our left over dinner. Staff was fine, room was good enough for the night. We have stayed in much better HIE.

We had a minor issue, however it was resolved with care which made us feel valued. When we asked for local attractions we were given many choices, the staff was very informative. My overall experience with this particular holiday inn express was enjoyable. Thank you.

Not a terrible stay, but no great shakes. Expected more from Holiday Inn with all their fancy media blitz marketing that suggests how great they are. I seriously think you can do better for the price. The location is nothing special, in fact it's quite a noisy property close the Route 16 with quite a bit of commercial/retail properties nearby....

Very disappointed in the facilities. The pool was hazy, dead bugs lined the floor edge, dirty pool towels strewn everywhere , and dead leaves under the plants. When we tried to use the guest laundry facilities, the driers didn't work so we were stuck with two loads of wet laundry with no place to dry them !!! Had to find... More
