Just stopped for the night traveling through to another destination. It was very conveniently located ,just off the highway. Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel is in need of a few small repairs/updates, but overall it was clean and comfortable. If the Marriott two doors down had been completed, I would have definitely stopped there.

Very large room. One of the cleanest inside and out. The staff was excellent and friendly. We had reservations from the night before, so check in was less than 5 minutes. Convenient access to the interstate. Great stay. Highly recommended from a frequent traveler.

Spent the night here after working in the area. Beautiful new hotel that is located right off of I 65. Best housekeeping I have ever seen anywhere and I travel constantly. The only slightly negative was the noise from people walking upstairs. Perhaps 4th floor would be quieter but overall it was great.

I agree that this hotel is 5-star quality. We had one of the larger rooms for the family and were pleased with the quality of the furnishings and the room in general. Everything was clean and the bed was great and everything functioned as it should. Breakfast the next morning was also quite good. We will definitely stop here again.

My family was in town for a funeral, and the Holiday Inn Express was the only one that had room availability. Little did I know that was for a hidden reason. The housekeeping service was horrible, and when we went to check out on Sunday morning the front desk agent didnt know how to simply change the method of payment.... More

This was 5 stars all the way. Check-in was easy and the young lady who checked us in was very polite. There were cookies for the guests at check-in. The room was very spacious. This is one of the cleanest rooms that I have stayed in in probably 10+ years of travel. Normally, you may see some dirt in the... More

The hotel is very nice and recent but the side on the highway is awfully noisy and you can hear trucks all night. Without the noise issue, I would have given a 5 to the hotel. The bed is comfortable and the room of decent size. Breakfast is also good.

Hotel was very busy but customer service was still good. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. The breakfast was hot and contained a good variety to choose from. I have stayed there a few time when in the area on business and the price this time seemed a little high for the region.
