Clean hotel, nice people, thought the breakfast was good, missed the nightly reception.
Quirk that is out of their control - bathroom fan always on when bathroom lights on, no option for fan off or on. I like to listen to the news/TV while doing makeup/hair - but would have had to turn TV way up. Noticed going down the hallways - heard lots of TV's way up - probably because of bathroom issue - have not experienced this at other Holiday Inn Expresses. Somebody was cheap on electric boxes when building?
Wifi - have to say, it is not adequate per earlier reviews. Note, I did not complain about this as I will be staying here again when back in the area, but be prepared to use your own personal hotspot you might have on other mobile devices, do not yet rely on their wireless network if you need to get some serious work done. It might have worked better in public areas, but not rooms.
All in all, a good stay!
