“A Good Holiday Inn Express”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Favorable reviews here influenced me to book a room at this hotel. The staff is eager to please customers. We were pleased in every way except that we would have liked to be nearer to the downtown area.

There was a gal by the name of Lisa D. in the food service area who is a HUGE asset to the hotel .............. We have stayed at this facility frequently over the past 5 years and in our opinion... you can't get a much better employee than her!!
Sincerely,
Arthur C. Damiano

This hotel is nice but it needs a couple things. Neighbor in non-smoking room down the hall was smoking. I don't know what they can do to prevent this, but it is he smoked up the entire hallway. The main problem I had with this room was the air conditioning-heater. When you went to turn it on, you noticed all the mold gathered on the surface of the cooling fins where the air comes out. I don't usually notice this but it was easy to see. I was just getting over a cold so I noticed this and then decided not to use the AC. Luckily, the temperature was mild so it was not a problem. I would rate this hotel good except for the mold.

Room Tip: Check A-C to see if they are ever cleaned.

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We found that the breakfast was very good and Lisa and Shirley really kept up with replacing the food when it ran out. Lisa and Shirley did a fantastic job of making us feel right at home. The breakfast area was very clean at all times. I would like to thank both Lisa and Shirley for making us feel right at home.

My wife and I had reservations for the day after Christmas , we arrived a day early due to impending bad weather. The staff here was amazing, so polite and welcoming, they managed to find us a room we could stay in both nights. Breakfast was the highlight of our day,Lisa whom sets it all up was so nice and accomadating , she made sure everyone started their day off right. What impressed we most about this Hotel is: that I felt the staff here really cared and took pride in their work. We would definately return,

The room at first seemed very nice but looking down at carpet was gross and sticky. Pillows lumpy, beds very soft and no bath towels (only hand towels). My husband snored so we asked him to get a different room :). They only had smoking rooms left. He went across street to best western. He was amazed! All new rooms with hardwood floors. Bathrooms clean and bed was firm. Go there until this place gets a makeover.
