Stayed here 3 nights for the US Rowing National Championships. Very convenient location only 5 minutes from the venue. The hotel is less than 1 year old and is above average for a Holiday Inn Express. Bed was very comfortable. Staff was nice and friendly. Free wifi and breakfast. No room safe; which is one of my must haves since I always need a safe for my laptop. Breakfast is minimal - basic juice, coffee, milk, cereal, bagels, cinnamon rolls, yogurt, waffles, eggs, sausage, and instant oat meal. Same every day. Room was clean, but faucets and towel bars were low quality and already starting to loosen up. My room faced the back so was very quiet.
Location is not great, but I was here alone so it was ok. I didn't feel threatened but this is definitely not a location to walk around at night. I pretty much got in my car every evening and drove into Knotsville. Would not choose this location if my family was with me. Next door was a thrift store, dollar store and K-mart. Front door is locked at night and you have to ring the door bell for the front desk clerk to release the automatic door. At night, the rear parking lot is full of large trucks parked for the night. Seems like lots of truckers stay here.
