We were driving home to Florida and needed a place to stop on I-24. We spotted this hotel and decided to give it a try... and we're glad we did. The young man at the front desk was very polite and friendly. Our room was perfect. Very clean, plenty of space, a nice comfy King bed, lots of pillows, EXCELLENT... More

Really nice people on staff. Nice room. This place is due to undergo a remodel but I liked it the way it is. I guess it'll be even better. Clean rooms. Cool air conditioning. Nice tv and fridge. I'd stay here again.

This was my 8th time stopping here and it might be my last. The owners son is a person with a chip on his shoulder. Maybe he should not be working here, as I since he has been here the level of service has gone bad. It has a great location and is a good stopping point for our travels,... More

Hotel was clean, room up-to-date and comfortable. Front desk check-in was easy and clerk was very professional. The morning breakfast was very good. I will stay here again when passing through the area.

Not a bad property but one of the more lacking hotels that I have stayed in with the IHG family of hotels! Room appeared to be clean and bed was comfortable which is the good! The "badish" is a slight musty smell in rooms (had to switch once as the AC didn't work in the first and smell was in... More

On our return to Tennessee from Kankakee, Illinois my husband and I found ourselves needing a place for the night due to inclement weather. Holiday Inn Express was chosen due to proximity from the interstate. Our next visit will be because of the excellent service and accommodations we received. We were welcomed most warmly by Phoebe upon check-in. She could... More

Only stayed one night, but the rooms were updated and clean. The beds were comfortable. They had both soft and firm pillows on the bed to choose from. They do offer a free breakfast. Although we ate elsewhere this is a very nice option.

The only thing "Holiday Inn Express" about this property is the exterior appearance. It appears to be a converted Quality Inn or something. The entire (non-smoking) 3rd floor smells like someone was burning incense. There was some kind of air purifier running in the hallway, but it did no good. I called down to the front desk around midnight considering... More

This was a nice, clean, comfortable hotel. The clerk was accommodating and the breakfast was very good. The only down side like someone else already reviewed there was some stomping overhead and it went late and started early. We are wondering if there is some remodeling going on overhead. Overall I would stay here again.

We were traveling through to Chicago & stopped overnight to get some rest. The hotel was really nice & clean. The only problem was you could hear who ever was in room above us up walking & making a lot of noise most of the night. The continental breakfast was great & gave us a jump start in the morning...
