I arrived at the Holiday Inn Express with a reservation and reservation number to be told on check-in that the Manager had cancelled my reservation. I asked why and the kid at the desk could not tell me.He told me they were full and there were no rooms and there was nothing he could do. I informed him if I... More

With few exceptions we stay at Holiday Inn/Express when traveling because we know they're clean and safe. We appreciated the room upgrade due to the fact our original room wasn't available. But I'm sorry to say this particular property was a disappointment. The outside was clean and well kept but inside was another story. Trash and food crumbs on the... More

We almost always stay at HIE when we travel: Nashville, London, Cleveland, New Orleans, Toronto and even Effingham. Yes, there is an Effingham in Central Illinois. We like to stick with what we know, and HIE has never disappointed, all things considered.

We were visiting northern Indiana to scope out summer housing for my son's upcoming internship. I always choose Holiday Inn Express because they are so reliable, and this was no exception. Spotless, comfortable room, courteous staff, excellent breakfast and I felt very safe. I will definitely stay here again!

The hotel was soooo clean and the staff was amazing. I stay in Merrillville for business and my normal hotel was booked. I am very picky and I was very pleased with the accommodations. It is located near alot of good restaurants and entertainment. I will be back!

We choose Holiday Inn Express hotels for value, service, and consistency in always meeting our travel needs.

I felt like I was staying at a JW Marriot! Ok maybe not all that. But besides being spotless like they cleaned for the president upon my arrival. They were super friendly.

Check-in was smooth. Room was clean and very comfortable. Plenty of outlets and even USB ports for charging! HD tv was a welcome sight. Breakfast had just the right number of options and the breakfast monitor was quick to replenish supplies when necessary. Meeting room and wifi service was perfect for our small meeting.
