Room including bathroom is overall quite clean. Surprisingly, can't hear noise even though it is very near freeway. Front desk staff was very nice and accomodating. Request two Queen beds... More

We were on a short overnite to the area. Not impressed and a bit disappointed with IHG. I'm a new member recently switching from another property and this property is not one I will revisit. A bit old but that's ok if maintained. It was clean. Service was not friendly and room was below average. Nothing to do at the... More

This was our second time staying at this hotel - we stayed for 1 night last summer. The rooms are clean, the staff is very pleasant, the free breakfast was much better than what most hotels offer. The only negative comment I have is that the door that opens to the parking lot behind the hotel always seemed to be... More

My family stayed here for 2 nights. Pros: Clean rooms, great water pressure, and free breakfast. My family stays at Holiday Inn Express hotels frequently. One major plus was that in the morning it wasnt packed in the breakfast area. Literally 2 other people, so it was pretty chill. Cons: I booked the room through Hotels.com. The desk attendent was...

We were lucky to get this room at the last minute, since NASCAR was in town!! This hotel was very nice & clean. The rooms were very updated and very clean. It was also very affordable, given the area, popular travel time, and all of the activities going on. Would stay there again!!!

We only live a few miles from this hotel, but we had a plumbing emergency, so we had to stay at a hotel one night. I was surprised that this place had excellent reviews given it is just off the freeway, and not in a very interesting area. However, the reviews are correct. It is clean, pretty, quiet, and there...

I loved staying here! It the perfect place for me to get away. The suite we booked was VERY spacious and clean. The express breakfast was great! The staff went above and beyond to make sure our 2 night stay was a great one. I will definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

Stayed here for a business trip recently... Check in was very pleasant, it was a late checkin, about 8pm and the front desk clerk was friendly & professional. The room was pretty standard, and what one would expect...clean, comfortable bed, microwave & small fridge. Mine faced I80 and the freeway noise was noticeable at night. The wifi was decent, but...

Don't let the odd location keep you from entering this nice Holiday Inn Express. The rooms are clean, the bathroom is well lighted with a great shower head, and the beds are comfortable. In addition, the breakfast room and the buffet were nicely done. Since we have family in the area and have tried other places, we were pleased to... More
