Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express on Raymond Diehl Road in Tallahassee reminded us of why we've abandoned the Holiday Inn Express brand after several years of it being our go-to place to stay during our frequent travels. I am busy right now and it's just not worth me spending a bunch of time providing details, but here are a few of my notes from our stay so you'll know why I do NOT recommend that you stay there: - Dirty toilet, bathroom, and room -- the dirtiness was obvious, which made it obvious that whoever was supposed to clean the room failed to do their J O B - Toilet would not flush -- the front desk person moved us to another room, but that room was every bit as filthy as the first - Very dark rooms -- not only were there not many light fixtures, but a couple of them didn't even have bulbs - Telephone broken -- the cord was broken and detached, so even just a casual observer would have noticed -- again, people are not paying attention or doing their jobs at this hotel (hello, management!) - Industrial noise from HVAC -- the air conditioner was VERY loud; again this should have been noticed by housekeeping and fixed - Broken office chair (would not stay elevated, sat leaning sideways, uncomfortable) --that the chair was inoperative was obvious just by looking at it - Halls had lumpy and loose carpet -- the place is falling apart and taking on a third world appearance This hotel is worse than the worst ones I've stayed at while traveling in some of the most rundown places of Asia, Africa, and the Far East. Do not stop at this hotel. You're better off sleeping in your car.

I wasn't impressed with the room. Looked kinda dirty. Thank goodness it was a one night stay. The Breakfast area were quick fruit, muffins, juice and coffee. The pool was outside standard size. Check in was slow 2 people ahead of me took a bit.

Hi T1844IVannm, We appreciate your recent stay and detailed feedback for our Holiday Inn Express Tallahassee - I-10 E property. Our hotel is committed to providing our guests with quality service amidst this ongoing crisis. Due to the mandates in place for the prevention of the COVID-19, we are unable to serve our usual hot breakfast that our guests know and love. Regrettably, this also includes limited workforce for housekeeping. I am sorry that you find our services unsatisfactory and efforts inadequate. Your feedback will not be left unnoticed. Our local management has been made aware of the impression it gave you and I am confident that your comments will be used to coach our team to provide a better experience in the future. We always challenge ourselves to be better and look forward to having the opportunity to restore your confidence once the restrictions are lifted. Until your next visit in the area! Best Regards, Alice P Case Manager IHGService

The shower has hair in it also had a broken facet handle. It also has a broken handle inside that went to the plastic door. The paint was chipping In the bathroom and caulking was pealing off. The bed was not bad, nothing like your own bed to sleep in. Not worth the price they were asking ($100 a night in a king). More like a motel 6 or super 8 room. ($39.99 or 49.99 a night). Breakfast is a grab and go (not great at all). Maid just walked in the room after me saying please hold on. Luckily i was just getting dressed and not doing other things. Never stayed in a holiday inn before but I can tell you it felt like the worse Christmas present ever. Won’t open that box again aka stay in the super 8 before this.

Good Day Chrisk15854332! It's always our pleasure to receive feedback from our visitors. I truly appreciate your time and effort to share yours, and for choosing us when you were in the area. I'm concerned that our bathroom upkeep and maid service fell short of your standards. All we want is for our guests to be at ease, and I'm sorry to hear that our breakfast choices didn't entice your taste buds. The review of our visitors helps us in taking steps for improvement. I went ahead and shared your thoughts with the hotel's management and housekeeping teams. Please find the time to check the private message that I sent you. I hope you'd reopen your door for us so we can have the chance to make it up to you, and give you a stay full of brilliant basics. Stay safe, Leni C. Case Manager IHGService

Stayed 2 nights. Our daughter enjoyed the pool. We used the laundry facilities. Due to Covid we did need to ask for extra things like towels and toilet paper but that was no big deal. Easy location right off the highway. Lined breakfast but still a few choices. Fit would have been a nice addition but that may not be and option since it isn't prepackaged. We were a bit confused thought because the coffee cups, lids, and stir sticks were not wrapped and could be touched by everyone- especially the stir sticks.... Which I feel is more of a germ spreader than fruit, bagels you can get with tongs, or a paper pad in the room. Just an observation.
