I was sent here for a work on one of the Navy ships for two weeks. After coming back from a hard days work every day, I was greeted with smiles and good conversation. It was very nice to have front staff members who were kind and willing to talk. All the people I made contact with were very professional... More

I usually like Holiday Inn Express (as well as other IHG brands), because you know exactly what you will get, and the value price relationship is typically good. But this was way below my expectations... The reasons? 1. The hotel was dirty! Public areas, and guestrooms as well!! We had three rooms and two of them had the bathroom dirty... More

Nothing extraordinarily good or bad about this HIE. Only niggles were tight parking and a small breakfast room that could not seat everybody at 8am of a weekend. Roadworks outside (not the hotel's fault) made entrance a little tricky and slow but hopefully they'll be finished soon (that was early August 2016).

Clean property with a nice updated room. Rose (Hotel Manager) has put together a friendly and knowledgeable staff that understands and provides what is essential to make for a great stay.

This hotel is OK. It is clean and the staff are all very nice. You do get what you pay for. It is not a fancy hotel and it does seem a bit old although renovated. There is not much to do around the hotel so if you are looking for a cheap place to stay this is the place.... More
