Traveling on I-10/12 on a recent trip from Austin to Tampa I pulled over for the night and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Hammond. From my experience of HIE's theres two types, the renovated older hotel and the newly built. This hotel was newly built within the last few years. The location is a bit odd as its behind a few fast food type places and some other retail shops. The lobby was very nicely done and spacious. All of the hotel employees i encountered were very nice. This hotel has a bar that was open till 12 and passport members get a free drink which was a nice touch. The room I had was clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable, only drawback was the tiny pillows, not sure the point of having 4 3/4 length pillows but they worked. The bathroom was small but everything was clean. You'll find a lot of oil workers in this hotel since it has conference rooms, unfortunately this also drives up the price, little bit higher than I would expect from a HIE in this area.
