“Good price, good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I picked this hotel because the ones downtown were way too expensive. It was clean, nice and updated, and the workers were friendly. However, our room never got cleaned, and we had to go down to the front desk to swap out our dirty towels for clean ones, and had to make our own bed. I liked that it had a microwave and fridge, and we used the fitness center and the pool, which were both nice (although the elliptical in the fitness center is broken). The breakfast was nice - typical for a hotel breakfast. Also, if you are like us and aren't traveling with kids, just know the pool seems to attract lots of them.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the pool.

Dear LMG1988,

We are glad that you were able to enjoy yourself while you were at this hotel. I do want to apologize to you about the room not being cleaned. We did bring this up to housekeeping to make sure that it does not happen again.

Thank you again!

I stayed here with my husband and baby for three nights in a pool room. Room was clean and property was very quiet. The free breakfast is great--there is plenty to choose from. As it happened, I was at the front desk a few times with multiple requests....asked to turn up heater on pool, needed crib for room, needed towels, etc. The staff, namely Mario and Eddie, were so accommodating! Very friendly and addressed my issues/requests in a timely manner and with a smile. I wish that were the kind of customer service I got everywhere. It really made a difference in our stay...thanks guys!! Pool was great for the baby once it was warmed up a bit. It would be a better pool area if the floor wasn't painted that orange color. Paint chips stick to feet and get in pool...easy to track it into room. Other than that...great value. We'll be back!

Whenever we travel, we look into the Holiday Inn Express properties. We have always been happy with this brand and have almost always found the properties to be clean, spacious and modern. This property was excellent. Through the Entertainment Book, we received a very reasonable price, but even the price without that discount was reasonable.

The location is close to the airport, but there is not much else in the area other than other hotels, a fast food restaurant and one other steak house style restaurant, Branded Steer, which actually had a very good menu which included many vegetarian options.

The room was spacious and we were given a room with a kids suite off to the side which would be great for a family with children. It had a bunk bed and an area to lounge, including a tv (in addition to the one in the main room). Our room faced the inner courtyard pool area, so it was very quiet. Beds were very comfortable.

We would not hesitate to stay here again. It isn't a far drive into town, near the airport (did not hear any planes, however), and a very clean, modern, spacious property. Highly recommended.

Here on business, so my criteria for a hotel was proximity to airport, and access to a shuttle. I was not disappointed in either. As promised by the desk clerk, the shuttle was available within 10 minutes. Pleasant young man spirited me away to the desk where equally pleasant Tony effortlessly checked me in. Like always, the rooms are accommodating with a refrigerator, microwave, great WiFi. This particular room was a mini suite and so there was a great couch, a nice lounge chair and a very functional desk. The room couldn't have been more quiet and the bed could not have been more comfortable. Of note, a small area near the front desk is dedicated to a very comprehensive selection of snacks and items that you may have not remembered to bring. Downstairs, there is a large indoor pool area, a hot tub and a video arcade. Additionally, there is a small fitness room with aerobic machines as well as a multipurpose weight machine. Breakfast the next day at 8 AM was slightly disappointing. There was no fruit and the trays that were to contain sausage and egg selection were both empty and no one was around to attend them. While I was satisfied with hard-boiled eggs, yogurt and cereal, many folks were not. All in all, this was a great property and I would absolutely stay here again.

Not many express hotels have a bar but this one has a free bar on the weekdays. Great staff and rooms. Will stay again. I only wish they would have lemons because my drink of choice is a lemon and coke.
