This hotel is probably a 2 or 3 star, but was clean, spacious and had a good breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful. I gave it a 4 because it had a great location and staff and was a good value.

I booked a room in advance at this hotel because I knew bad weather was coming and needed to be closer to work since I have to go in. Everything was confirmed. Then while I was driving to the hotel on check in day, they called and left a VM on my phone to simply say they were cancelling my reservation “because of the weather”, but I could call them for more information and “have a great day!” No other explanation given! I immediately called back several times....no answer. I ended up having to scramble last minute and stay at a friends house. This hotel cares nothing about their customers. I suspect that when increased demand for rooms came in, they simply chose to rent the room to someone else for 3 times the price. Not sure if this is a typical Holiday Inn policy ( I’ve had an experience in the past at a different location where the room type I booked months in advance was not available when I arrived) but this location absolutely sucks. Beware if you book here. They won’t hesitate to cancel you and give your room to someone else.

We have visited this hotel several times this year, even when no one else did because of COVID-19. The customer service has been ok but we had reservations this last weekend and we were needing to check in early but when we arrived at almost noon, the manager told me there was no way to check in because the rooms were not clean yet. I ask her that if we went and ate lunch, could they have a room for us when we got back. She flat out said No, without even trying to help us out. So needless to say, we cancelled our reservations and we will NOT go back!!😡

Hotel is very nice and clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are roomy and up to date furniture. One issue if you're a light sleeper, ask for top floor and a room not facing Cooper Street. Our room was 237 and I could hear some road noise before I finally drifted to sleep. Otherwise, a very nice stay at this hotel. Close to shopping and restaurants.

Stayed 3 nights in January 2020. Quick, easy check-in; Ana was pleasant. Upon settling in the room, recieved a couresty text to ensure things were in good order. Recently renovated, the hotel has a modern, clean feel. Room (King) was well laid out; plenty of power (both AC and USB); large TV. Good breakfast as one would expect from HI Express. Maria was very nice and always aimed to please the customers. Free laundry (1 washer/dryer). The only knock on this place is the rather thin walls; you could hear your neighbors, those above (recommend 3rd floor) and in the hallway when folks stream in late night or early out. That killed any possibility of a quiet, restful sleep. Was woken up each morning between 4:45-5 am by others. Close to many restaurants and things to do.
