Spent some time at this hotel because they were the host hotel for the Blue Knights conference. The staff was very nice and they did a great job keeping the property in great shape. Since it sits in a complex of other hotels, it is easy to see they are the top of the group for this end of Lufkin.

Stayed here a few years ago when the place was new, stayed again a couple of weeks ago. Lufkin is a boom town and there is plenty of competition regarding hotel rooms, but we're quite satisfied with this HI and will continue to stay here. What can you really say about Holiday Inn Express? They are pretty much all the... More

The key not working on the second night, the mold and mildew in the bath/ shower. And all of this for $199.00 wow . Manager??? Never knew they had one.

After walking into our original room at the Quality Inn next door this was like arriving in Mecca (or at least civilization). We chose a King Suite. It has a kitchenette complete with a dishwasher which was very handy to wash baby boyttles in. My wife actually gave me the ol (I've never loved you more) after leaving a hotel... More

I stayed at this hotel off and on for the last two months and have enjoyed my time there. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast is okay, and the gym is more than adequate. The staff, especially Crystal, were very friendly and attentive and because of them I have really enjoyed my time there. I have stayed at... More

Don't stay in a room with a Jacuzzi tub because the smell (musty, moldy, mildew) is rather over powering. Think the main reason is the lack of usage causing old bath water to sit in the pipes or tubes. Other than this complaint the hotel is great. I asked to change rooms because the smell gave me a instant headache.... More

My wife and I stay here when we travel. We really love the balconies and ceiling fans. The staff has always helped me with anything I needed. They are always professional. The breakfast staff top notch. They always have restaurant and other advice. We have actually altered our routes of travel destinations so we could spend the night here and... More

Ok, the walls between rooms are made so you can't see in the other room. That's it. Because even if someone is talking in a normal voice, you can hear everything they say. It is ridiculous. I was here for 3 days and on Sunday night 2/3rds of the hotel was empty and quiet. t=Then about 9pm 4 people came... More

This location looks really nice, until you stay there. During my stay Lufkin received 6 inches of rain. I was staying on the 2nd floor ( they have 4 floors) and woke up to water dripping into the room. They did offer to give me another room, but I waited until morning. Then I found the TV didn't work.

Front desk staff was super friendly and welcoming. Room was clean. Huge flat screen television with an excellent selection of channels. Our room had a great big shower (looks like they took out the bathtub and replaced with a shower?) Anyway, the door of the shower opened into the door of the bathroom which was a quirky after-thought design but... More
