I was extremely happy with my experience starting at the pleasant check-in experience, the large and clean room, gym facility, pool and breakfast. Many soft touches akin to a high grade hotel with a very reasonable price

We have stayed here many times and one of the issues of this hotel is the consistency of service. Each time we come it is a crap shoot as to whether the hot tub will be in service. We enjoy relaxing after a day of work or driving and surprise it was not working again when we arrived. The staff...

Stayed here while visiting friends in a nearby town. The front desk staff were all wonderful, very friendly! The hotel was not just clean, but smelled clean as well from the time I walked till I walked out. The rooms were very clean as well. The breakfast was included and wasn't bad at all. I definitely recommend this Holiday Inn...

The entire facility was spotless and well kept. The morning breakfast area was very clean. Diana and Pauline kept the breakfast items well stocked and continually inquired about any needs that we may have. Diana and Pauline started our day on a very positive note. Very nice day by these ladies.

This is a "normal" Holiday Inn Express. Front desk staff were accommodating and friendly. Room clean. Fresh linens. A variety of pillows were in the room to meet the needs of each family member.
