“Suited.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

I booked this place based on reviews and location. I just need a place to rest for the night. The room was clean, quiet, comfortable. The staff very friendly and helpful at both check in and out. The breakfast in the morning was pretty good compared to others. The Pancake machine seemed to be a hit with everyone. I would stay here again.

We always choose Holiday Inn Express Central in Tulsa, OK. We visit twice a year for an long weekend of leisure, shopping, and attending local events. We have stayed here for many years and each time it feels like we are being welcomed by "family" and friends. Tonia McGinnis, front office manager, is outstanding! Tonia's friendly manner and professionalism are always consistent. She makes sure our needs and wants are met. I can call on her to make reservations for future stays, requests for special accomodations and attention to any concerns I might have. The housekeeping staff is very dedicated and does a wonderful job making sure the highest standards of cleanliness are upheld. Breakfast for guests is a favorite feature of our stay and Yolanda is there to make sure everything is fresh and that there is plenty of hot coffee. She is so efficient and her warm smile and greetings make our day start just right. Our reservations are already made for our next trip to Tulsa in November and we would not consider staying in any other hotel. The Shelley's

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and Thank you for ackowledging the staff, specifically Tonia and Yolanda. Both ladies have been an integral part of the hotel for over 10 years each, and are deserving of the recognition.

It is very gratifying to hear from a repeat guest that we have maintained a consistent high quality of service throughout all your visits.

We all look forward to your next stay!

Booked this hotel based on other reviews. I have to agree with all the good reviews I read. To be fair, I did not try out any of amenities as it was just a place to rest after a flight from Tulsa Airport on my way to see family in Oklahoma. The breakfast was good. Free breakfast was good as I had the omelette and yogurt and toast. Location is right off freeway so it is easy on and off. It appeared there are several restaurants very close. Area around hotel is okay, nothing to make one feel unsafe. Staff was pleasant and accomodating. Bed was comfortable with comforter and good pillows.

As other reviewers have mentioned this is a nice HIX property centrally located in Tulsa. Easy access to I-44, OK 51/BA Expressway and the airport. Clean, roomy and we LOVED the mattresses in room 210...front desk mentioned they were Temperpedic and we slept like babies not just becuase of the mattresses, but also the sheets; they were nice quality and the bottom sheet stayed tight and smooth. Loved it! ZZZZZZZ! Toilets flushed very loudly, but we didn't hear ones from other rooms. Overall a good stay for 2 nights.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the upgraded mattress.

Can't say enough about the customer service I received from Jason, while helping me during trip to Tulsa for a wedding. They say that employees are the face of the business, if that be so, then Holiday Inn Express Tulsa certainly has the perfect person representing them. Thanks! Jason for a wonderful experience.

I moved to this hotel the second day after staying at another hotel the night before. My prior hotel was a dud compared to this hotel. Holiday Inn Express was located right in front of my job, so it was convenient. The staff was very professional and friendly. The rooms were very clean and fresh and I slept GREAT!!! I had a mini-fridge and microwave in this hotel which I did not have at the hotel I stayed at previously which is why I moved to this hotel (yaaaaay)!! The restaurant served great food and drinks. All in all it was am awesome and stay and when I come back to Tulsa to work I will stay here again!!
