This is a newer clean facility. The location has easy access close to major roads. Note: the 2 queen room does not have a microwave or mini refrigerator. This was not a big deal for us as we were only there for the night to catch an early flight out. We left prior to breakfast so we can not comment... More

Loved the location, within blocks of the cute historic downtown. We had many restaurant choices within just a half mile or so. Booked this on Priceline and was very pleased. The staff was very welcoming and the hotel is lovely. The room was spacious and quiet, and there's plenty of free parking. I'd definitely stay here again.

Stayed two nights, just to go to Mt Rushmore. Was disappointed that there wasn't a hot tub. Kids did enjoy pool, but hubby could have really used a hot tub, after day at Mt Rushmore and other sites in town, especially considering the size of the room the pool is in, they could have two and still have room for...

Thank you for your stay, Jrtoots01. And I can understand your concerns in regards to a hot tub, it can be relaxing after a long day. We are in the process of a "property evaluation", and we will have that as a topic of discussion. Once again, thank you for your stay and your opinion is valued. More

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 The staff is friendly, but the hotel is old and outdated.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

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.

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....
