“Very nice hotel for the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

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.

Thank you for your very nice comments. We appreciate the positive feed back and I will share it with our team members here.

The only correction is, we are not a Holiday Inn Express but rather a full service Holiday Inn. We get that a lot and it may be due to the new Holiday Inn logo.

Warmest regards,

Gretchen M. Twickler

Great rooms. Two queen beds and a fold out sofa. Separate TV for the kids. Perfect for our family of five. This hotel is our favorite place to stay on our way through Louisiana. (Usually after LSU games.)

Hotel looked great from the outside. Lobby was very nice and fancy. However, when we got to our room on the 4th floor, it had an odd smell to it...almost like it had been wet, but the smell was only in the hallway, not in our room.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It is our goal to provide exceptional service as well as product and we are glad you were able to enjoy your stay.
As far as the smell on the fourth floor hallway...judging from the date of your review, it sounds like the same day we were having the hallway carpets cleaned. I am sorry for the smell as I know it can be annoying to the senses.

We hope you come back again soon and if I can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

After a long day, it was nice to stay at a hotel with such a friendly staff. The room was extremely clean and the bed was so comfortable! The hotel does sit back off the road so you don't hear alot of traffic however there is a train that runs and much to our surprise you could barely hear it. New outlet mall right across the highway. My husband & I didn't eat in the restaurant but we did have drinks at the bar. The young lady behind the bar was sweet. We will book this hotel again.

Nice place to stay. Not in a beautiful location but if your looking for a hotel that is clean, affordable and centrally located it will do. The pool is small but its okay, no glass beer bottles near the pool!! lobby was clean as were the rooms and pool. The bartender was friendly lend us his personal bottle opener for the 2 nights, thanks. I'd recommend this place to other travelers

We were looking for a place to stay close to the medical center. This hotel delivered more than we expected. The lobby area was beautiful, and the bar/restaurant was lively without being obnoxiously loud. Rooms were nothing special, but we're comfortable and attractive. Set back from the highway, it was very quiet (though we did hear a train during the night). Its location directly across the highway from the mall was convenient for shops and a variety of restaurants. All in all, I recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Okay, I actually stayed here a year ago in 2010 when I, and dozens of others, were called in to work for the Coast Guard. We stayed at this hotel for close to two months and their service was outstanding! In particular I wish to give a belated thank you to John the chef. He not only was a great chef, but he actually became a friend to all of us; he definitely went beyond the call of duty. Sincerely, Captain Steven Craig, (retired) Goodyear, AZ.
