“Pretty good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

My mother and I stayed at this hotel after an outlet shopping trip and we'd booked our stay pretty much based on location (i.e.: proximity to the outlets, other shopping options) and price. It was a pretty basic stay, check-in was pleasant, our room was clean, we had a nice, newer flat-screen LG TV, etc. Our room did not have a view at all--so if you're looking for something to give you the "lake" experience, look elsewhere, perhaps something actually ON the lake; however, if you're looking for a nice, clean, centrally located place to stay, this would be it. But the best part of our stay? The breakfast. Lots of hotels advertise "free, hot breakfasts" and few deliver beyond a bagel and a choice of cereal, but this Holiday Inn Express exceeded our expectations in this aspect. Coffee, juices, toast, etc., are commonplace, but they had fresh, delicious cinnamon rolls, sausage, bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy, they even had a pancake maker. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised by our stay!

I am a frequent traveler who is a member of the Priority Club and frequent their hotels as exclusively as possible due to the fantastic benefits.

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and while it is not anything fancy, it is your typical Holiday Inn Express. You know what you can count on - Nothing more/Nothing less!

The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the staff adequately friendly.

For those who are picky...It is not perfect. The wallpaper was starting to peel in some areas and there was some mold on the ceiling in the bathroom above the shower. But, I want to stress again that it was CLEAN.

We do not utilize the free breakfast so I am not able to speak about that other than the area appeared to be clean and spacious.

We will stay again next time we visit the area.

Overall, this is an excellent value. I have seen lots of bugs crawling around inside the rooms of the cheaper local motels. The Holiday Inn Express is clean, has great service, and a very good "free" breakfast. Don't wait until the last minute to eat though, because everyone does that, and the dining area is very small.

Room Tip: No rooms are really any better than others. You're at the mercy of the other guests, who may hav...

You get what you want.....clean, quiet, comfortable......what you really want....no fantastic frills....but no negatives at all......so one is happy to pay for what is advertised and promised....in fairness what more does one want?
Breakfast was adequate...fine. And unhurried....So....I was content..you get what you pay for!

This is my wife and I's third trip back to this property, and it is still just as nice as the first time we came. Very handy to the outlet mall, as well as all the attractions and places to eat in the area. They have built a bypass now for the through traffic on Highway 54, and that helps keep the noise down a little. Nice pool for the kids, and close enough to walk to other kid oriented attractions. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: To keep noise to a minimum, choose a room on thw West end of the Inn.

Hotel needs to be updated, tired old 70's look to it. Furniture, carpeting, etc all needs to be replaced. Its rare these days to find tube televisions in hotels but I did here. The hotel said the fitness room was updated but 3 pieces of equipment in poor to average condition doesn't qualify as updated in my book. Internet service and strength was spotty.
A positive for the hotel is the location. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Try Wobbly Boots bar/grill for some great BBQ and good prices on drinks.
If I wasnt a Priority Club member and didnt like accumulating points I would look elsewhere before I'd stay there again.
