We needed a clean, convenient place to stay as we travel through the south on our summer vacation, and found this wonderful place. It is fairly new, and is spotless! We had a wonderful room, big flat screen TV, wonderful bathroom, near restaurants and we even made a short visit to the Walmart just down the street. It is so... More

This place was tops from start to finish. Awesome breakfast, kick-butt rooms, and a seemingly rad pool. Staff was extremely polite and welcoming. The fitness center was nice, though it is typical for a random hotel gym. We were just passing through, but MAN are we glad we picked this place! I'd imagine it's one of the more expensive in...

Restaurants are within walking distance of the hotel. Our check in was friendly and efficient. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Wifi is free and works well. Beds are comfortable. We... More

All Holiday Express Inns have the same expected standards, however the staff at this location seem to be a little more friendly and respectful. The hotel is clean and the breakfast is good. Many of the visitors are long term and very friendly.

Our room on the first floor appeared to have been re-modeled recently. Very nice and the bedding very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was standard and equivalent to most other hotels. The only negative was getting into the hotel; when exiting I-20 you have to go past the hotel, make a U-turn and then enter the hotel's parking lot.

Enroute from Huntsville, AL, back to East Texas, this was welcome sight. And it is what you expect from a Holiday Inn. The rooms were new, clean, and well kept. The facilities were abundant and fully functional. The staff was very helpful. While you could not see it (very well) from I-20, it was easy enough to find. We slept... More

Stayed a single night as I had a meeting nearby the next day. Although the rooms are clean, my room was on the third floor and it smelled like it was a former smoking floor. My room even though the bath had new tile and sink and the room had new carpet, STILL reeked of smoke. That said the rates... More

We enjoyed this hotel so much, we stayed again on the return trip home. Good breakfast, clean, close to the highway, no problems parking and leaving a loaded tow rack. Recommend staying on 2nd floor. Military discount.
