“Just passing through...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

I usually stay at the HIE when ever I visit the Mt. Vernon, Ohio area. This time stayed for four days and was disappointed with the cleanliness of the lobby and hallways. There was a lot of trash in the stairway and mud on the first floor. Granted, there was a lot of rain but no mats by the "smoker's doors" added to the mess.
Cleaning crew didn't clean or replace towels in my room one day. Front desk said the room was marked "unoccupied". Technically, it was but I usually leave the room during the day.
Hope they just had a couple of "bad" days.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms by the rear stairs. Stairs are wood and very loud.

This is a good place to stay if you are visiting the area. The front desk folks are second to none. he motel is fairly new and in still in good shape. There are restuarants closeby (even a great one next door).

Room Tip: Top floor = less noise!

I was pleasantly surprised at how well kept and clean this Holiday Inn and Suites was upon my arrival. The staff was very courteous and extremely helpful. I called on the phone to let them know I'd be arriving later than my earlier expectations. The room was large and spacious with room to move around and had great air conditioning. Happy to see that they had a nice flat screen tv with full cable. Many small town hotels still have tube tvs, but not this one. The hotel was clean throughout from lobby to hallways to rooms. The walls seem nice and thick because I never heard another guest and the hotel was fully booked to capacity.
Speedy check in and check out.

We were doing college tours and wanted a place near Kenyon in Gambier OH. This was a very solid choice. Nice room with all the amenities. Things were new and fresh and the decor was very attractive. Nice big HD TV too. Breakfast was pretty good too. I thought all these places were exactly alike but then we stayed at another HIE the next night and it wasn't good so its important to point out that this is one of the nicer ones!

A very nice place to rest and relax while on a journey. Pool was small but clean. No hot tub even though on the hotel maps it has one located next to the pool. Located on top of a hill just off the main route, and next door was a multiplex cinema. That worked out great for us as a family. We took in Star Wars Phantom Menace 3D for a change of pace. We walked over from the hotel so it was very convenient and fun too!
