We enjoyed our stay at this Holiday Inn Express. The lobby and dining area are big and it almost has a large hotel feel when you walk into their doors. Their staff was friendly at all times of day. Parking was well lit and it seemed like no parking spot was far from the front entry way. Breakfast was good... More

Very clean, comfortable beds and pillows. Mgmt was excellent--remembered our names when we arrived and throughout the stay. Breakfast was good--nothing special, but decent. Slept very well. Unexpected surprise from a Holiday Inn property. Great shuttle service. Will stay again.

A friend and I stayed here and it was very clean and well maintained. We were in for a local dog show and got approval from the manager to bring our 2 - 45 lb dogs in. The room was nice but don't know which one it was. It had a small sleeper sofa, microwave, fridge, paper plates, plastic ware... More

Very clean, well maintained facility. Stayed in a "Suite" which was really nothing more than a large room with two beds and tiny sleeper sofa. Appears new, but sure wish they had considered the neighborhood before constructing.

We stayed two nights. Super comfortable beds and great continental breakfast. Easy access to interstate. Friendly staff. Plenty of fast food around and a Wal Mart but not any fine dining. Quiet rooms. We were on the interstate side and could not hear any noise.

This hotel is super! I am a road rebel and travel extensively for business. I chose this hotel because it is not in Downtown Dallas but only a few miles east and I did not have to pay outrageous parking fees like I do when I stay in the Downtown area. The parking is free as well as the high... More
