This is a nice, clean property and the staff is friendly. We got a good rate on our suite, I think because of the construction. It is within walking distance of several nice restaurants. After the construction is finished, it will be very nice.

Visited this location on 10/7 for a one night stay! Although the lobby and pool area was being refurbished and I'm sure will be a nice upgrade I found my room #114 especially the bathroom to be dirty and needing some work! The baseboards were filthy! The floor tile cracked and toilet needed several flushes to work properly! The mattresses... More

I am very sorry that you had a sub standard stay. We are working hard on improving everything at the hotel and we realize there are other things to improve. A full remodel of the rooms with new bathroom tile, mattresses, and furniture is the next thing we have scheduled. Your next visit I promise will be a much better... More

It wasn't until I got my credit card statement that I found out that I had been charged for Thursday night . The manager refused to remove this charge from my... More

Let's start by saying that. The Hotel is currently under renovation, with that said, Jesse went above and beyond to accommodate me. I travel every week and always wish I could encounter front desk personal like Jesse. Don't let her fool you with her youth. She is very professional, courteous and knows how to make a guest experience the best... More

Holiday Inn Express does a good job of always giving the traveler a similar experience, and this hotel was no exception. Even though they were undergoing renovation, the check in area and staff were pleasant and the room was nice. The location within walking distance to a Panera's was an added bonus when we arrived late and just wanted a... More

My credit card was charged more than the bill received at checkout. The vending machines on the 2nd floor weren't working. Not very clean, although this may be due to construction. The wifi signal was inconsistent. The bed & pillows were very comfortable.

My Wife and I stayed here so we could tour the Buffalo Trace distillery. This location is next to restaurants and close to the highway. We found it to offer a good, quit, nights sleep with a passable free breakfast.

I would recommend this HIE to anyone! Very nice rooms, friendly staff. Close to some good places to eat. They have an indoor pool, guest laundry, elevator and a fantastic breakfast including PANCAKES!!!! Some of the Wyndham hotels could learn from this one.

Had a bit of trouble finding a motel for the night. Glad they had a suite room available for us. Was surprised to find the jacuzzi in the room and not in the bathroom donut didn't get used. The suite rooms are spacious. Beds are very comfortable with a mix of pillows from soft to firm. The motel is clean... More
