We were on a road trip (en route to Austin from Michigan) and were planning to hit Texarkana at about nightfall - but after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor (both for this hotel and for our Texarkana options) we decided to stop at the Holiday Inn Express in New Boston.
Check-in was a breeze, very polite & helpful staff. She even said that although the pool would officially close soon, she would not kick us out if we wanted to go for a swim. We did get kind of sad when we asked where was a good place nearby to get dinner and a cold beer, and were informed that New Boston is DRY! She advised us of some good restaurants in Texarkana, so we headed back that way in the hopes of bringing a few beers back to our room to relax in front of the television. Unfortunately they don't sell that on the TX side, so we wound up driving back to the state line! We were just sooo thirsty. Anyway, not the hotel's fault - just something I wish I had known when I booked the room, so now you know.
The room itself was beautiful, extremely clean and new. Fresh crisp sheets, great big bathroom, lots of channels on the TV, a desk, mini-fridge, and wet bar. I ask you - what is the point of a wet bar in a dry town exactly? Anyway, we were very comfy and cozy for the one night we stayed there. Shower was awesome, lots of hot water and plenty of space! And the breakfast in the morning was great. Typical for the new Holiday Inn Express; delicious hot and cold options, very filling and tasty and convenient!
Only one very slight snafu: we used Priority Club rewards points to pay for the night, but in the morning discovered we had been billed for the room on our credit card. The young man at the front desk couldn't figure out how to fix it and had to call a manager. They were both nice about it and supposedly got it fixed, but we'll still keep an eye out for the next card statement just to be sure. Overall we were very comfortable and would stay there again if we found ourselves in the area!
