“Disappointed in the Holiday Inn Express”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2004

My friends and I were pretty disappointed in the Holiday Inn Express this past weekend! We occupied a suite and a regular room for 2 nights, giving the hotel plenty of money! They, in turn, gave us a poor reception at check-in...no happy greetings, no smiles. We did not report it but we found a red medicine capsule lying on the air conditioning unit and a used coffee filter still in the machine. All in all, the suite was not very clean...dirt around the bathtub and all ledges in the "kitchen" area. We should have told the manager at the time; but due to the attitude of our checkin person we didn't think it would help. We had the same clerk at checkout, same attitude. Have to say, the breakfast they serve is outstanding! Cement tables around the pool could use sanding and new paint. Hot tub looked pretty disgusting!

The hotel was clean, very nice pool. The front desk staff were very friendly. We had our two children and they loved the continental breakfast. I loved the newspaper at my door when I woke up. We were very impressed and would definitely recommend staying at this hotel. We stayed there right before the July 4th weekend while we took in the Bluebell factory tour ,the Nuns of St. Claire miniature horse farm, and visited Washington on the Brazos.
