We stayed there last week as a last night before getting to the airport next morning. We were disappointed since we are well familiar with the Holiday Inn Express hotels, so our expectations were aligned to our previous HI express experiences, but this hotel does not come close or perhaps we did end up receiving a bad room (304). Since we arrived late we were too tired to complain to the staff or to abandon and stay somewhere else for the night. My guess is that we ended up perhaps in a room that was not yet renovated or somehting.
The room was basically clean, but carpet and walls were stained, old, used... although the outside of the hotel look clean and new, so did the lobby, so were quite suprised. The door to the bathroom looked like there had been a fight or something or that someone tried to break in when the door was closed. There was no shower curtain (though the rod was still up), very nice to discover that in the morning when you are in a hurry. etc.
Would not recommend this hotel (unless we had really bad luck with the room assignment), and will think twice before booking again in HI Express.
