“Very good hotel and good breakfast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We really liked this hotel although it seemed like the man(staff) wasn't too happy about the coupon we found and gave him that we found at the rest stop, even though he said no problem. He just didn't act very friendly although he was helpful he just didn't have a great disposition. but that was fine we really liked the hotel. The only thing is the rooms are so close you can hear everything going on next door or in the hallway. Some people woke me up that were talking in either thier room or the hallway at 2 am then again at 3am. But other than that the room was nice and the breakfast was good they had a pancake maker and hot eggs with cheese, and fresh hot cinnabon rolls.It was pretty good. we got the room for $69 per night with the coupon so great value. It would have been $119. w/o coupon.

Room Tip: Get coupon from rest stop in the book titled hotel coupons,save $50. per night.

There is nothing wrong with this place at all...there's a lot right though. The front desk was very nice, the rooms were spacious, updated and clean. The breakfast had a lot of variety and was well stocked.....the lobby was nicely done, My gym was only a mile away..... I will be back!

I had to do the average rating, sorry HI Express. Yes you provided with with a clean room, comfortable bed, microwave, refridgerator; and a decent sized LCD TV with Direct TV.

But my internet connection is poor and Im on the first floor. I cannot even watch a 3 minute YouTube video without it stalling out. Also, I can hear every footstep of the person above me. Imagine if it was a family!! So bring your earplugs just to start off on your sleep. I went to the 2nd floor yesterday and every step I took down the aisle thumped. I haven't heard my side neighbors which is a plus. You do provide a nice breakfast, and the pancake maker is a nice addition - to bad it fails on every other cake. Most mornings the attendant is taking it apart, cleaning up the leftover batter. The indoor pool looked nice, but i didn't bring swim gear.

Be prepared on not having any food choices within walking distance; except maybe the Hilton Hotel. I think the closest restaurant is a mile or so away down a very busy Rt-18.

Room Tip: The top floor (4th) so you don't have to hear the thumpers above.

Comfortable & quiet room, choice of firm/soft pillows, excellent free internet - generally all very good. Signs of water spillage around the bottom of the shower curtain. Surprisingly good express breakfast. Public areas all neat & well maintained, staff likewise!
Good value for money.

Booked two rooms for a one night stay with family during the first weekend in October 2012.

The rooms included one with double queen beds and one with king bed. Both were excellent: clean, spacious and comfortable.

A lot of choices for breakfast the next morning.

Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I have been to many Holiday Inn Expresses and they always impress us!

Room Tip: None that I know of.

Found the stay to be better than our expectations. The Staff was very accommodating - any thing we asked for was taken care of quickly and with good spirits (smiles and cordiality all around).
The breakfast was good. Some variety of eggs every day along with fresh fruit, cereals, yogurts, etc. My sons loved the pancake maker. Good coffee too.
Minor issue with the ironing board was taken care of within minutes - tip was gently refused.
Room was left immaculate every day.
Bathrooms were clean and the showers were nice.

Was worried after reading other reviews - totally groundless in our opinion

The Holiday Inn located only a few minutes from the Livingston, Busch, Cook and Douglas campuses served the purpose of our family with a busy college weekend schedule. Not near any retail or restuarants. No frills hotel, clean rooms (we slept 5 with a cot provided by HI) decent pool area, breakfast had some variety, however, was poor in quality. Try to get a room that doesn't face the highway and you will be fine. Our rate was $114 before taxes and included breakfast.

Room Tip: Choose a room opposite highway, on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th floors.
