We used to stay at another hotel nearby for our yearly pilgrimage to the homeland (Meridian) but the third change in ownership brought the quality down so we tried the Holiday Inn Express. I had to admit my wife was right about trying it years ago.
We were greeted promptly when we entered and checked in without issue. The room was neat, clean, and the hallways even smelled clean. The beds were fantastic. I travel a lot for work but this was the most comfortable hotel bed I've slept on in a long time.
The gym was cool, clean, and the TV worked well. This isn't always the case. The equipment was mostly new and worked well. The indoor pool was warm and while I was there late at night, it was being maintained and cleaned. It looked wonderful the next morning.
The complimentary breakfast was good. There were plenty of choices and if you don't like it, there's a Waffle House across the street. We ate there on Mother's Day morning and were in and out in a flash and the people there were "down home friendly."
The bill was under the door on the last night and I used the free office set up to get our boarding passes and printed them with no problems. A neat thing was that when I went to clear out the browsing history, it was set up so that it wasn't being stored. A minor detail but in this day and age, it was just another sign that they pay attention to detail.
All in all, it was a great stay and they will see up the next time we're up there.
