We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at the end of March 2014, and were very happy with the accommodations! The room was clean, spacious, and very comfortable and the pillows were great! We were traveling with a dog, and had no problem with obtaining a room on the second floor as the first floor pet rooms were already filled.... More

We stayed at this same hotel last year based on cost, location, friendly helpful service, chocolate chip cookies, and for breakfast decadent cinnamon buns. Part of the hotel is undergoing renovation but where our room was located none was visible nor was there any construction noise. Our room was spotless and had a good shower. Wi-Fi is free and rooms... More

After a long drive from Florida, this was a welcome place to stop. The "suite" was decent, the beds comfortable, and breakfast was quite good. The mini fridge in the room did not work, but everything else measured up. The price was right and location just off 95 was ideal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Emporia. It felt like a luxury hotel but perhaps because the hotel seems to cater to business travelers and it was a Friday night we got an excellent rate. It was quite, our king-sized bed was very comfortable and we got a great night's sleep after a long drive.... More

This hotel feels it is alright to allow nonpaying people to just hang out in its Lobby, Business center and Breakfast area's Checked in at 600 pm and they were there up too if not after 10 pm just eating pizza and having a good time. Why would a paying guest have to be submitted to this ? When the... More

Just there. Overall decent, room nice, clean? Need more luggage carts. none available between 7 & 7:40am. They could not be found on the property, so were stashed in someone's room for some reason. Please check bedside alarm so it does not go off at 1am because some JA has set it to be funny. Also, received a call/hang up... More

We have been frequent users of Holiday Inn Express on our travels. We have stayed at this one twice a year for many years and have been very pleased with the staff and our accommodations. Love their mattresses as I have my best night sleep there. Also love the warm chocolate chip cookies when we return from dinner in town.... More

My wife and I stopped here on our way back home and found the hotel very nice. Quiet, clean and the staff very accommodating. The morning breakfast was a sumptuous buffet organized and overseen by a very personal woman named Jean. Puts out a good spread and is very attentive in keeping it stocked. Emporia is a pit stop off... More

While there were some very nice features, the breakfast and the breakfast staff, the hot tub being the highlights. We had trouble connecting to the wifi, the signal strength was very low and we were booted off several times. The staff at the front desk could have been more professional, we overheard them complaining about each other and swearing while... More

Far and away the best HIE we have stayed in, and we have stayed in many. While all aspects were near perfection, the breakfast was way beyond our high expectations. Nothin over or under cooked, great selection and the absolutely best sausage gravy I have ever eaten, and I am from the South, you cannot go wrong staying here!
