I stay in many H.I. Express', and this one was of the better 50% of them. Everything was up to date, clean, large room with mini fridge (no microwave) and large flat screen tv, bed was comfortable as always with all of the different pillows noted for being soft or hard, was right on the highway but didn't notice any highway noise. I was given a room that faced the indoor pool, so I don't know how the room against the exterior walls are. The lobby and breakfast area were more upscale looking than usual. The room unusually had a shower instead of a tub with seats in it, which was really nice. Water pressure / hot water was satisfactory, room was cooled down when I got there on a hot day, indoor pool area looked very nice and clean (didn't get in). The pool was large. There were a lot of restaurants, department stores, gas stations, etc. adjacent to the hotel. This is a safe, newer neighborhood so there are no worries about walking or car safety. The staff at the front desk was courteous, and had no issues. The only "non-praise" comment I have is that it was pricier than most other HI Express type hotels. ($149).
