My wife and I stayed for one night on our way to Florida. Room was clean and staff was very friendly. We read earlier about 'locals' hanging out in the lobby and common areas. When we arrived, we were allowed to check in early, which was nice. After a couple of trips downstairs to use the internet in the business... More

Like all Holiday inns we have been to the room was extremely easy to book through the IHG app. It has Friendly and quick service, clean and spacious rooms, very good breakfast and right off thé highway. This was the perfect stop on a thirteen hour drive.

We chose this hotel for an overnight stay on our return from Florida. The staff was extremely friendly, the breakfast was good with a nice variety, the room was comfortable, clean, and well furnished. We were able to get a 2 queen suite with sofa bed which is important for us so the kids can have separate beds. It was... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Emporia on Thursday, Nov. 12. It exceeded any expectations I might have had. The staff was friendly; the lobby and my room were spotless, and I had the best night's sleep EVER in a hotel on the road. The mattress was superb. In the morning I enjoyed a hot breakfast in the...

The hotel is close to I-95 while traveling. The breakfast was pretty good. It had several hot items like eggs, pancakes, mini cheese omelets, biscuits and gravy to go along with normal cold items. It has three floors and is in a pretty quiet part of town with several restaurants close by. The beds are on the firmer side, I... More

Arrived about 9pm, breaking up a trip down south. Greeted by friendly staff, room was nothing special but the cobwebs in the floor and ceiling corners were not very encouraging, nor was the candy bar wrapper on the floor by the bed from a previous guest. Breakfast started at 6; we were there by 6:30. Coffee was hot but the... More

I reserved 2 Queen Beds for $108 per night. I chose this hotel b/c it advertised an indoor pool. Check-in was quick. The clerk gave me my room keys and up to the 3rd floor we went with our bags in our hands (as there were no luggage trolleys available). We get to our room (which was way down the... More

Nicely located, with clean rooms and friendly staff. You can find all you need nearby. Typical for most US hotels, the noisy Air Conditioning system is turned on to cool the room down to frige levels and you can not open any windows to get some fresh air. But that's maybe just a European habit ;-) and there's still the... More
