“Very pretty and polite -- too bad it was uncomfortable, too!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2007

Before I begin with the not-so-great aspects of this hotel, I want to start by stating that this Holiday Inn Express is one of the nicest no-frills (non-luxury) hotels I have been to in quite some time. The use of marble (and other stones) throughout the property, coupled with its relatively new decor (the property is fairly new) was very pleasant. The staff were nothing but polite and courteous during our stay. The continental plus breakfast was adequate, if not inspired -- it filled the void, but that was about it.

Having said that, I would not recommend this property. The rooms were nice, perhaps a little larger than the norm, but in a hotel I need two things: a hot shower and a comfortable bed; the former was accomodated, the latter was not. The bed was one of the firmest I have ever attempted to sleep on (and I like firmer beds, as compared to my wife). Niether my wife nor I were able to sleep more than a couple of hours at a time over the course of our two night stay. That's it, really. It was an uncomfortable bed. But at a rack rate of $120/night (which is unconscionable for this level of property -- in the last year, I've stayed at the Intercontinental in Houston for less!!!) the room was completely and totally unacceptable. In retrospect, I should have mentioned my concerns to management after the first night, but out stay was a busy one and it did not occur until after we left the property. Having said that, there is absolutely no excuse for such a new property to have such unforgiving bedding.

BTW, if you are considering the Super 8 that is right next door to the Holiday Inn Express, I have heard some horror stories there as well, for only a few dollars less.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2007

I am a member of their Priority Club and was looking for a place for 2 nights. This was one of the options when wanting to use my points so I thought why not. It's only approx. 15 min. south of FW off of I-35. The hotel was very easy to reach and a great area. There is a Chili's within walking distance. Several options for shopping and eating are within 5minutues of the hotel by car.
The lobby was very nicely decorated with big plush chairs, an added plus was a indoor pool and hot tub. The exercise room had 2 treadmills, nice free weights, 2 ellipticals along with 2 televisions. The contential breakfast was the ususal, cereal, fruit, yogurt, a variety of juices was available along with some hot items (bacon, french toast and cinnamon rolls).
The rooms were nicely decorated also with big comfortable beds along with soft or firm pillow to choose from along with an extra blanket at the foot of each bed if needed. Free wireless internet is also available which is a nice plus. There was an easy chair that was big, comfortable along with a footrest and a little side table. The only problem I had with the bathroom was that when you turned on the light the fan also came on. Rather bothersome in the middle of the night. The hotel is also adjacent to Fort Worth Spinks Airport, a small municipal airport, which would also be nice to fly into and get a room here.
All in all, we definitely enjoyed our stay here and plan to return the next time we need a room in the metroplex. The only "bad experience" I ran into was not the fault of the hotel but of the guests. One morning there were several girls (10-12 years old)having breakfast unsupervised and once the bacon was brought out they grabbed handfuls of it. These were also the same girls that ran amock in the pool area and tossed the pool towels into the pool. After that you needed to obtain your pool towel from the front desk.
