Very clean & relatively new. We have stayed here several times & it has been consistently comfortable. It is close to the interstate & easy to get downtown. Several restaurants are within walking distance.

This is, by far, the best Holiday Inn Express I've ever stayed at. The staff went above and beyond to help my 85 and 95 year-old parents in addition to providing me and my sister a room when they were already booked and someone called in to cancel. It saved us in so many ways and even delivered the keys... More

This place was a little pricey but the service was fantastic. Clean! This is the best continental breakfast I've seen in a long time. I would stay here again. If you live in the south and headed to Chicago this is the place to stay.

First time I stayed here and did so spur of the moment. Room was very reasonably priced, very clean, nice bed, good breakfast. What more do you need? If I'm in the area again and I do go past this place, I'll stay there again.

We've stayed here several times and will continue to return. Asked for a room on the top floor and it was quieter than usual. Very clean towels & linens. Excellent night's sleep. Plenty of room to spread out. Breakfast was okay. Good internet connection and business center.

Outstanding front desk service! We were greeted promptly, and provided the most quiet room available. We were impressed that the hot tub and pool were ADA compliant. We enjoyed a quiet weekend away with excellent service and amenities!
