We stayed here on a road trip back from Florida. The hotel itself was typical of a Holiday Inn. Not 5 star hotel for sure, but clean and everything you would expect from a holiday inn. The pool was clean, the workout room was limited in equipment but clean, the beds were comfy and we all got a good nights... More

We stayed here for an overnight trip to see family members. The staff at this location were truly accommodating and made sure we were content with our room. The beds were comfortable and we had a decent sleep. While this location is within a small town, you still get that down-South feeling, in addition to the people you encounter. For... More

First let me say that when I complained to the front desk, they did refund my room rate, in full. It was apparent that I was not the first guest to complain about this issue. I am fairly certain they were roaches, but either way they were bugs and there were many of them! My other issue is the fact... More

Stayed with the family on our way to Disney from Pennsylvania. The hotel was simple to find and provided a decent night's sleep. Although, I believe the price was rather high for the plain accommodations.

Decided we needed to stop on the way home from Myrtle Beach since it was already midnight. Never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express but thought it should be decent for $125. Called ahead and felt lucky to get "the last available" room. After some confusion at the front desk, we were told we were getting the "emergency" room. Brought... More

The Holiday Inn Express is one of our favorite places to stay, so when we found ourselves near here for the night, we checked in, even though it is one of the more expensive motels at this exit. The hotel and the room appeared to be clean, as we have come to expect from Holiday Inn Express, so we were... More

The hotel is better than average. PLUSES: The Staff is warm, friendly and respectful. Overall, the place is clean. The rooms are large with granite in the bathrooms. The room was very quiet!

We are IHG rewards members so on our way to FL we would only stay at their hotels. This one was in a small town right off I-95 and easy to get to. The hotel staff was friendly and greeted us as reward members. They offered us our goodie bag or 500 points. The room was spacious. Looked recently updated.... More

Stayed here twice recently; rooms comfortable and clean, friendly staff, good basic breakfast items.
