“Best Hotel in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

I've stayed here on and off over the past year, doing work for the nearby paper mill. I've stayed at two other hotels in town when this was full, and both times, i've called them every day to try to get in here if someone left or cancelled. Its a standard Holiday Inn Express, nothing special, and kind of expensive as far as Holiday Inn Expresses go, but the manager and front desk workers are very nice and accommodating, the maid staff is good, and it is definitely the best hotel in town. Near the highway.

Room Tip: Higher floors are less noisy

This place meets all of the standards you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. The staff is friendly, rooms are clean and the normal breakfast. It is right off the Interstate and easy to find. If you like pizza Cucci's pizza is close by.

We stayed here one night and very nice. The front desk staff was very friendly and the room was very clean. Only thing we noticed was the bathtub was dripping a little but nothing that keep us awake or anything. Very nice nights sleep and the breakfast in the morning was good. Personally, I feel the price was a little high but if we are in the area again, we will definitely stay there again.

I arrived about 1 a.m. and the night desk clerk could not have been more awake and friendly! The room and bed were exceptionally comfortable, breakfast was delicious! Close to the main road - even though my room was at the front of the hotel I heard NO road noise :)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Ok, obviously this is not a 5 star hotel! However in light of the area and your options, this is a must stay. Most people are coming here on business. The paper mill in town is one of the few reasons this town still exists. Rooms are clean, the hotel staff is friendly, although they seem understaffed. This is a very beautiful area and walking out of the front door in the morning after a good nights sleep to see the mountains in the morning mist and fog is refreshing. The hotel staff puts out chocolate cookies each night, but you gotta get 'em quick! There is a pool at this location. As far as restaurants there is a new locally owned sports bar right down the road. Fairly convenient acces to I-64. If you come to the area you should stay here.
