“Family Christmas in Corydon, IN.......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We are from Wisconsin and have family in Corydon and the nearby area we visit each year. We stay at the Holiday Inn Express each time and will go back again next time. A brother and sister come with us from IL so we get adjoining rooms which are comfortable and clean. Even our little 9 pound pup said she appreciates all the staff cause they are very kind to her. She was also thankful to have rooms on the top floor so we could get our exercise by using the stairs while my husband used the elevator cause of back problems. Breakfast is always good and the pool/spa entertains the adults as well as the kids...... I always bring food along and the HIE lets us use the breakfast area to have a luncheon for the whole family. We'll be back next time..........

My wife and I stopped at this hotel on a road trip from the east coast to the Midwest. We stayed one night on both the drive out and back. We found the staff friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean, well stocked and we got a good night's sleep. We had stayed here before and had a concern about staying again (it seemed a little run down), but the hotel management has stepped it up and really improved things. We'd have no hesitation booking a future reservation here!

Took the family skiing in Paoli, 40 minutes away, and stayed at Corydon-Holiday Inn Express. Rooms were clean, comfortable, quiet, and well stocked. Staff was pleasant and helpfull. Breakfast was hot and plentyful not just pancakes or waffles. Several fast food and sit down restaurants to choose from in close proximity. We all enjoyed our stay and would go back again. Was pleased that the rooms didn't have the typical cigarette masked hotel smell. Pool and hot tub were inviting and clean.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor had less noise, and no possibility of feet running around over your head.

I travel for my business and stay 120 nights a year in hotels, and here is my story:

My family and I were traveling from Atlanta to Chicago for the holidays. We decided to stay at the HIE in Corydon for the night. We chose this hotel solely on the basis of it accepted pets and it had a hot tub.
We were warmly greeted by the staff and they had "home made" Christmas cookies ready for the folks staying at their hotel. Very nice. Seeing we had a pet they switched our room to a first floor room, thinking of us.
Once I got my family unpacked and into the room they checked up on us. We hit the hot tub and it was perfect temperature and it worked!
The night was quiet and the mornings breakfast was fresh and warm. The staff made it a point to come by our table and ask if we needed anything. That is very rare.
We had such a good time there we rebooked our stay for the following weekend as we traveled back home. QUALITY HOTEL AND STAFF - STAY THERE

Had a great stay at the Coydon H I Express. Arrived after dark and checked into a perfect 3rd floor room. Very clean, very comfortable. Recently remodeled with contemporary colors, fixtures and trim.
Lobby is very open, clean, and inviting. Big flat panel TV mounted on wall of the lobby dinning room. Very nice, contemporary tables and chairs. The breakfast was the usual fair but, with some pretty tasty "institutional style" eggs. Some china plates are available - nice touch. The coffee was hot and the milk was cold - just the way I like em.
Jessie worked the front desk in the morning. She helped me send some important papers by FAX back to my office. The fax machine was a little iffy and it didn't phase her - she re-faxed and confirmed it. Great job Jessie. Your efforts were truly appreciated. I have the sense that the hotel runs a little more smoothly thanks to her conscientious efforts.
The hotel is a little hard to find as you exit I 64 southbound. Drive south of the Walmart and turn west at the Arby's restaurant.
The shopping plaza located north of the hotel included said "walmart" plus shoe store and a sporting good store.
Try the Frischs "Big Boy" restaurant located just north of the I 64 exit. Nice, new building and offers good menu selections.

Room Tip: Ask for a 3rd floor room and arrive by 5 pm to enjoy some complimentary adult beverages and snacks.

We stayed here as a family traveling for the holiday. The hotel is not too far off the highway though you can't see it from there. It is right in the middle of an area with lots of retail and restaurants so a good stopping point.

The room was nicely sized, not huge but we weren't all crammed in. The pool was warm enough to use and the exercise room was small but had two treadmills and a tv so it worked fine for us.

Interestingly the microwave was too far from the outlet to plug in so we had to do some maneuvering but it worked eventually. Husband and kids walked over to the Culver's in the parking lot and enjoyed their meal there.

No extra perks, not even a paper outside the door for being a Priority Club member.

All in all it was fine and we would stay here again.

Thanks for the positive comments. We have three sizes of rooms from standard to oversized two-room Jacuzzi suites. We are conveniently located within walking distance to the 24-hour Wal-Mart and several restaurants. Our guests love to walk after being in the car all day.

We will look into the microwave plug-in and the newspaper delivery. We have newspapers in the Great Room area for guests during breakfast. I will mention this to my staff. Thanks for staying with us. We appreciate your comments and your business.

We flew into Indianapolis, rented a car and headed toward Corydon. I had read reviews online, and actually stayed at other Holiday Inn Express locations, so was fairly confident we'd find a similar level of cleanliness etc at the one in Corydon. We got checked in, went to our rooms only to find that both rooms smelled of stale cigarette smoke. My room was so bad that I actually requested to change. The carpets are dirty in hallways and rooms, not sure if this is where the smell is coming from. Beds were pretty hard, but tolerable. On the surface the maid service seemed to do a fair job, however I noticed that there was an odd film on the toilet seat the night we checked in. The next day after being out all day, I returned to my room only to find that the same film was there on the toilet seat - indicating that while I had clean towels, the actual toilet hadn't been wiped down. Overall, the staff was friendly, the breakfast was acceptable, but the cleanliness level was disappointing for this big chain of hotels at this location.
