We are a family of five who live in Long Beach NY and had our home destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. After spending four days at in-laws in Westchester County NY, we came back to Long Island on 11/5/12. It was then that we checked in to the Holiday Inn Express. First off, the hotel is very nicely kept and the rooms are new and modern but most important to us were the people at the hotel. From the front desk personnel, who sent several faxes on my behalf to the housekeeping staff who did an excellent job keeping our room clean, we can say enough to praise these people. The free breakfast was also a big hit with my children who between them probably ate 50 pancake in the 12 days we stayed there. In our time of crisis, the Holiday Inn Express showed itself to be more than a hotel to us, it became our home. For that we will be greatful to all the members of the Holiday Inn family. Thank You!
