“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Having stayed at 4 different Holiday Inn Express locations in the past week and a half, this was a HUGE disappointment. Yes, the lobby and breakfast area are updated, and the rooms are too, sort of.

Peeling new paint in the bathroom, AC worked, a little bit. Very muggy and humid despite AC being turned low. Very nice comfortable beds, and celing fan in the room was great. But... I guess we were spoiled coming from the HI Express in Gonazales, LA, which is brand new. And... the worst part is that the new, fabulous HIE in Gonzales was about the same price as this TIRED HIE in Oxford. About $100 a night is WAY too much.

The breakfast was also a far cry from other HIE locations we have visited.

We also recently stayed at a HIE in Commerce, GA. It's an "older" property - but it was about $70 a night. You get what you pay for. $100 for Oxford was ridiculous.

Stayed June 2013

Had a quick trip pop up to Oxford, one of my favorite places. I used to stay at this HIE bout 10 years ago, so I thought it might be dated. Far from it! Like new hotel, lobby and room are great. Very well appointed; I would stay here again. High recommendation here.

The property was recently renovated so it fees like it's brand new. The lobby area is very nice with a sitting area where you can watch tv or use the business center. The rooms are also new too. If you like the updated version of Holiday Inn Express - this hotel will meet your expectations. Staff is also very friendly.

We stayed here to visit Ole Miss. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and quiet. The linens seemed especially clean. The breakfast room space is comfortable and the choices were quite good. We would definitely stay again.

We are from Alabama but have always thought Mississippi is the friendliest state. Sorry but haven't been to Hawaii, Oregon or Alaska. The HIE was my last choice because I wanted a B&B but everything was taken. The room was perfect and the employees were delightful. I met 6 new friends while I was having breakfast in the hotel. We had read the music review in the current Southern Living so we went to Oxford and Clarksdale. It was outstanding. I plant to write a review on the City Groicery and Boure, two of the best restaurants in Oxford or the world for that matter. I really wish Londoners coould experience Mississippi. You are taking a chance to speak to Londoner you don't know and I promise you that 50 Oxford folks I didn't know spoke to me. The Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale was incredible. Thanks, Dave

Good location....clean & nice. exactly what you would expect from a holiday inn express.
the free breakfast was good, but not like a hampton inn breakfast. good for quick and easy weekend getaway. would stay here again, however the hampton inn right next door has an indoor pool and probably will stay there (the kids never pass up an opportunity to swim)
we did not have any parking problems. the fitness room is adequate for an express hotel. one of the treadmills was not working.
