“On a bus trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

My husband and I found this hotel to be excellent in every way. Check in for the 44 people on the bus was quick and efficient. Very clean, comfortable and well supplied room. Staff were all very kind. Brenda who was doing the deluxe continental breakfast for 2 of the 3 mornings was extremely helpful and friendly. One of the mornings there were 3 bus loads of people needing breakfast before leaving on a train ride. There seems to be no difficulty keeping up with it. We took walks around town each morning. The location of the hotel is prime.

Thank you for your review. We are used to dealing with large groups. People literally come by the bus full to this area. I will be sure to tell Brenda about your comments. Thank you again for your comments.

Stayed at this hotel for 1 night to ride the train the next day. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable and clean. Very close to everything this city has to offer, and by chance we were there for the Forest Festival. Want to send out props to Brenda who works in the kitchen, she was super nice and helpful! The breakfast could have been better though. Everything was microwaved and tasted cheap, but I was not expecting much. We were able to keep the car parked in the hotel's parking lot even after checking out so we could ride the train. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: bring your own pillow!

Wonderful hotel. Front staff gentleman was courteous, friendly and very helpful. Room was clean and spacious and quiet. We did not use pool, so cannot comment on that. Did go to the breakfast both mornings. They had a nice selection of pastries, cereal, bagels, fruits and the pancakes were excellent. The older lady on duty (sorry I didn't get her name) was extremely nice. She continued to wait on us, hand and foot, even though it was help yourself. You don't find many like her.

We did walk to dinner around the corner at C.J. Maggies. Good food and and huge menu. Also visited Cass Railroad in Cass, WV.

Even with all my traveling this was the first time I have stayed in a Holiday Inn Express. It was a great stay. I would choose this hotel again. We were there for the train ride and found ourselves next to everything. We could park our car and simply walk to what we needed to. The folks were friendly. The rooms were clean and new. The breakfast was terrific. We happened to be there during the Mountain State Forest Festival. This was a great location for the festival and the prices reflected it.

Stayed two nights with a tour group. Our room had two very comfortable double beds. The room was very clean with daily room service. It was had a coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave and blow dryer. There was a nice pool (that I did not indulge in) and a fitness center with two treadmills, bike and stair stepper. All the equipment was in working order. The breakfast was great and featured omelets both days, sausage, biscuits, pancakes, assorted muffins, boiled eggs, cereals, hot cinnamon rolls, toast, etc. The breakfast attendant was fabulous. We had 80 people in our group. She was so gracious and waited on us as if she was a waitress. She kept everything stocked, threw away our trash, and made us feel at home. She did not act rushed and took the time to greet us and make us feel welcome.

My wife and I just stayed two nights at the hotel as part of the American Mountain Theater package. I could rave on and on about how nice this hotel is. It is absolutely clean and sparkling. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is abundant for anyone. Eggs, sausage gravy on biscuits sausage, cereal and all the coffee and juices you want. You won't be disappointed here. Thank you so much Holiday Inn Express for a wonderful stay.
