“Good...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Stayed on the first floor, love the very high ceilings.
Everything is clean and a typical holiday in express.
The rooms need new bedding and beds.
At a rate of 70 or $80 it is
worthwhile.
The staff is just fine.
You will not be impressed and you will not be disappointed.

Effortless on and off the pike.Great breakfast bar with many selections. Clean and comfortable rooms and bed was perfect for sleeping.
Room was quiet and well maintained.
Second time we have stopped here. Will plan to be back again.

This was a stop for us midway from Virginia to Chicago along the Ohio Turnpike. This hotel provided a very comfortable room and outstanding service. I really like the new Holiday Inn Express formula a lot. We were given bottles of water and a couple of snack bars on arrival. Our room was very clean and well maintained, including a selection of pillows labeled firm, soft, etc. This hotel is 20% powered by a solar panel array, which further impressed me.

We have tired several hotels in this area, and so far, this has been the best yet. I used Priceline bidding and got the room for about a $30 discount.

Room Tip: We were on the Turnpike side, 3rd floor and it was quiet. No room has a good view.

We stopped in for one night on our way from the Outer Banks back to Chicago. Very convenient and nice amenities. Reasonably priced and very clean lobby. The hallway to our room smelled musty and smokey. We asked for a non-smoking room but someone had obviously smoked in it. The bathroom was nice but the floor had some damage around the toilet bowl which made it feel dated and dirty.

I'd probably look for other options the next time I'm in the area. Non-smoking room means just that and I was very disappointed with that aspect of our stay. I'm being a bit generous giving this hotel 3 stars.

I apologize for the smoky smell. We will be eliminating all smoking rooms with our renovation this winter which should really help the situation.

I don't what it's all about with limited service hotels these days, maybe it's the franchisee, maybe the franchisor, but there's a definite change in the air. In the last couple of of these places I stayed in there was a noise issue at night with a near identical script. At this location it was a baseball travel team there for a couple of nights. It seemed that neither they nor there parents/chaperones had ever stayed in a hotel before based on the way they comported themselves. Maybe it has to do with the general decline in public behavior standards that has infected the country but it was there. The team sounded like a heard of buffalo running through the halls amidst the slamming of doors.

We called the front desk and the fellow sounded frustrated as he called the room where the "action" was originating and the chaperones misled him about the noise source. Sadly, and back to my opening statement, these hotels only have one person on duty at night with the front desk clerk being ordered to stay at their posts unless it's a dire emergency. So if there's an issue and a phone call can't resolve it, you're at the mercy of the front desk provided they're able to get away for a moment.

I feel bad for the employees of these low budget operations, caught between guest satisfaction surveys and ownership demands for reduced costs, it's a wonder they all don't have ulcers, but maybe they do.

You are correct about the limited service hotels really taking off with the leisure market. I'm sorry that it was noisy and busy. We do sell out almost everyday in the summer with lots of team sports.

Thank you for the nice review, but I am not sure it is really for us as we do not have a restaurant other than our complimentary breakfast. There is a great restaurant right across the street (Steamers Stonewall Taverne). The rest of the review does sound like us, although sometimes we get mixed uup with Lima, OH. If it is for us, thanks again!

Reserved for two nights in May for a family memorial we were holding in East Palestine, Ohio. Our room was clean, the two queen beds we had were quite comfortable and the small fridge and microwave came in handy. It appears the hotel had recently gone through some renovations so it looked nice and efficient. Sure it isn't a five star, but for where it is it was nice.

Thank you for such a nice review. I am sorry for your loss and am glad that we could be of service during your time of need. We actually have not renovated yet, but will this fall/winter when business slows down. You have summed it up nicely, in that we are not a five star hotel, but are nice for where we are.
