“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

I checked in on Feb. 27, 2015 and checked out on Feb. 28, 2015. I was attending a Florida State University college basketball game vs. the University of Louisville. My confirmation number for my stay on the receipt was 61187899. I stayed in room 526. Just a bit late reviewing your hotel. Very nice clean and spacious room with flat screen TV. Comfortable bed. Very good breakfast choices! I would recommend the hotel to others!

We often stay at HIE hotels. We were so pleased to find out this was a new location. Although check in, at 1:30am, took far too long (10 minutes, as the clerk was on the phone), everything else was perfect. Our room was clean, quiet, and adequately dark with shades drawn. The mini fridge even held, and actually kept frozen, all of my ice packs.

We all slept very well, as the beds, and bedding were SO comfortable. My kids slept on the pull out sofa, and commented that even that was comfortable, with no springs poking them in the back.

We got up too late for breakfast.

Easy off and on interstate.

EXCELLENT STAY.

We stayed here when we came up for a job interview and again when we came back to look for somewhere to live after that. Both times we were very pleased, the second time the staff remembered us and even called us by name. Rooms were very clean and bed was so comfortable that we woke up refreshed and ready for the nice, free, hot breakfast that they served. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Good hotel. Clean. Stay at a lot of holiday inn expresses and they are all privately owned so you never know what you'll get but no problems here. Had a good stay, love the full breakfast and ease off the interstate. Worth your time if you're passing by.

I've stayed here before and enjoyed it, that's why I continue to return. The crew recognizes me which makes me feel welcome. The staff is always friendly, rooms clean and beds very comfortable. Every room I've stayed in has been quiet. The internet is good and free. The don't nickel and dime you. This hotel cares about it's guests

This was your typical Holiday Inn Express. Friendly staff, sufficient accommodations. Only one coffee cup for two people, very hot water in shower, which I like, but no water pressure. Expensive for average person but I figure it's mostly occupied by business people on a company budget.

We checked in later in the evening and checked out early before breakfast so I can't comment on the breakfast area. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and got us checked in quickly. Our room was OK. A clean hotel room is very important to me. The bathtub had some stray unfamiliar hair in it that grossed me out. The bed was comfortable though and I would have slept better if the room was a little more sound proofed. I heard every sound from the parking lot! The air conditioner was loud also. Our alarm clock went off at about midnight, we probably should have checked it before we went to sleep but didn't think about it. All in all, it was OK.
