I've stayed a LOTS of Holiday Inn Express rooms over the past year. This one was just like all the rest with premium fixtures, a little larger room, and a super nice spacious lobby. Very pleasant, professional staff also add to the stay. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of the usual 5 was the shower curtain rod was coming loose at one end and there was a little paint coming off over the tub.
I always read Tripadvisor before making a reservation and was shocked to see the negative comments. All I can say is there's too many (7) to ignore and maybe they had a management problem that's been addressed. But for certain as of October 2012 this was just another well above average stay in a premium hotel well worth the few extra $.
