Decided to leave early to try and drive between 2 east coast storms. Made it to Emporia and stayed at the usually reliable HIE! Close to restaurants and I-95. However, it might have had the thinnest walls ever, as we could hear noise on both sides of us. Not what we've come to expect at HIE's.

Stopped here for overnight stay on way to Florida. Was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. We had a king sized bed and the rooms were very nice. Would stay here again. Lots of places to eat. Near lots of restaurants

I gave this place four stars because the next morning was much better after having the breakfast that was served. I also noticed that the wifi in the other hotels is via wire, while this one has free wifi. Now that I have told you the good, I will get straight to the ugly, upon walking in you notice the...

We were driving to Florida for February vacation. Emporia was a good mid/stopping point for our trip. This hotel had everything we needed at a reasonable price. Beds were comfortable. Rooms were clean quiet and well maintained. The best part was the complimentary breakfast the next morning. There was a wide variety of good breakfast options and the staff kept... More

Never before have I had such an experience at a Holiday Inn. From check in to check out it was the worst. Outsiders are permitted to use computers,they informed me the printer has not worked in some time. By 9 the front desk person was asleep on a chair in the door way. The pool was not heated. The hotel... More

We stopped at a Holiday Inn Express in Florence SC on the way down to Hilton Head and another one in Emporia on the way back. Rooms are decent. I really liked the free breakfast that offered more than the typical continental. While I didn't bring a bathing suit, I would have if I knew they had heated indoor pools.... More

We used to drive to Florida from New York on a regular basis (round trip). We always stayed here at this hotel. It is always clean, quiet and offers a free breakfast, which is really good with plenty of variety foods. They have an indoor pool with a hot tub and an exercise room. The area is a great place...

My room was very comfortable; the hotel is in the process of being renovated which is why I did not rate it 4 stars. The breakfast was great and the staff was wonderful. You couldn't ask for a better group of people.

Great experience from beginning. I called before I arrived to request a 2nd floor room that faced the woods (not the road) & the staff was friendly and accommodating. The lady at check-in was very pleasant & informative (w/o sounding like she was reading a script). She even offered me a list of local restaurants. (I decided on Cracker Barrel.)... More

We stayed there on 1/6, and were very pleased with its location. It was very clean and comfortable. I believe they are still trying to renovate. The breakfasts are great ! There were many choices for breakfast. It was nice being asked if we enjoyed our stay. Even though we did not use the pool/ jacuzzi or the exercise room,... More
