“Great place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2007

Stayed overnight in this hotel on the way from NY to FL. Very nice accomodations, and I'm a hotel neurotic! The staff was very friendly and gave a great recommendation for dinner, Percy & Willies (or something to that affect). Room was very nice and clean. Nice, clean bathroom. Very quiet, didn't hear other guests or tv's, etc. Bed was very comfortable. Decor very nice. Looked brand new. Breakfast was not much, but I don't really look for that to begin with. They had muffins, bacon, juice, fruit, coffee, tea, cereal. Grabbing a cup of coffee to go and a muffin was fine with me. The area of Florence seems to be very nice too. Lots of stores around and restaurants. On my trip back to NY I stayed in Roanoke Rapids, NC, which did not compare at all to this area. I wished I had booked the return trip in this hotel instead, but it wouldn't have gotten me far enough up north on the first day of travel. If it had, I definitely would have stayed here again. I would highly recommend this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2007

stayed here for one night on way from Virginia to Hilton Head, its a great place to stop for the night. Hotel is brand new, clean , efficient staff in great location just off I 95. Room was pleasant, a bit small but ok for one night, air conditioning was loud, apart from that no complaints. Breakfast not that great, its all disposable plates and cutlery etc, but for what you pay its fine.

Go to Percy and Willies just down the road for a meal, it was great. Also there's a mall just across the road which is good for a wander round and stretch your legs after such a lot of driving.

Wouldn't want to spend a long time at this hotel but its great for what you pay and what you need from a layover hotel. Also I emailed the hotel before arrival, they were always great, very quick to answer and happy to help with requests.

Stayed here based upon Trip Advisor reviews. The hotel looks brand new, rooms were clean and staff was accomodating. A great hotel has to provide a decent nights rest; the beds were comfortable with decent pillows. I rented a queen suite which to my suprise was not as big as I had hoped for. The website photos made the room appear larger than is was. The complimentary breakfast was nice, everything is self-service-don't expect IHOP. The best thing going for this hotel is it's location. It's next door to a movie theatre, 3 traffic lights from the biggest mall in town, and you're near all of the well-known eateries Red lobster, Outback etc...

  • Liked — The location of the hotel is near all of the shopping facilities in town

Frankly I'm surprised at all the rave reviews here about this hotel.

I found the staff to be professional but not overly friendly.

The room was on the small side. The flat panel is a nice touch except that the picture on the screen was fuzzy and the set itself looked like it had seen better days. Not so hot.

A table was found to be dirty, looked like it hadn't been cleaned from the previous guest.

There was some type of event going on during my stay. There were people constantly running around and yelling in the hall as though they were in their backyard having a party. I had to call the front desk to put a stop to it. Another thing to note: the doors in this hotel slam louder than other hotels I've been to. Almost sounded like I was in the midst of some percussion group concert.

The free breakfast was just average.

Based on the reviews here, we stayed at this Holiday Inn Express on our recent trip to Florida.
Everyone here was right. It was spotless; the staff was terrific; good location; nice breakfast in the morning; free wifi; stylishly decorated.
There is absolutely nothing negative to say. It is a great hotel along the I-95 corridor. I can't recommend it enough.
