We stopped here thanksgiving Friday night and were exhausted when we arrived. Check-in was quick, and the staff were friendly. The bed was comfy, the bathroom was clean, and we had a nice hot shower in the morning. This chain has a tasty cinnamon bun with the buffet breakfast, as well as oatmeal in a few flavours and yogurt along... More

This property is in good condition. The beds were moderately comfortable. The size of the room and bathroom were fine. However, the breakfast was substandard. There were few choices and what was there seemed stale. The staff was very nice in all regards. The breakfast really ruined it for us.

We were here on business- the room seemed clean but did smell like water damage. Since my husband works in water damage, he was able to tell. The bed was okay- seemed a bit worn out and we definitely heard the dude in the room next to us snoring all night long. We had an issue connecting to the wifi... More

We loved this hotel! We had been on our road trip for 11 days already staying at a variety of hotels along the way. This was the best so far!

I appreciate it when there are good places to stay between the major cities. There were several food options nearby or, at the most, one exit away. The hotel was clean and quiet. I always have a swimsuit with me and seeing the pool from the lobby sure made it inviting! I opted, instead, to hit the hay and had... More

Though the Vandalia, Illinois Holiday Inn Express is small in size, it's large in hospitality and just what fatigued travelers need; a smiling welcoming face (Amber) at the desk; comfy, clean, well-decorated rooms; a nice hot shower; and tidy little breakfast of choices. We actually found nutrition in some; yogurt, walnuts, raisins, and hard boiled eggs. Fancy? No! Wrong place.... More

Despite this hotel's location right on an off-ramp, I promise you won't hear a d**m thing at night except the blissful hum of the air conditioner. Typical new H.I.E. property. Comfy beds and pillows.
