Clean and quiet stay! The rooms a were nice and updated. Our family was traveling to Boston and this hotel was not far off of 90. We enjoyed the free breakfast in the morning. There are quite a few restaurants nearby. We would stay here again if we are passing through.

Booked this hotel somewhat last minute for a soccer tournament. Happy with hotel, staff was nice. Hotel was full with families for soccer and baseball tournaments. Breakfast was busy, but for the most part not too bad. Some kids decided to fool around and get the elevator stuck Sat evening, causing fire dept. to come and had to take the... More

We were very happy with our stay here. When we are choosing a Holiday Inn Express, we are not expecting a Full Service Luxury property. I sometimes feel that hotel guests set unreasonable expectations for they are booking. The Hotel Lobby was very bright, cheerful, and modern. The Front Desk staff could have not been nicer. The breakfast provided was... More

My fiance & I stayed here for 3 nights while visiting the area to see family. We had a king size bed and the room was clean. The continental breakfast was great for us to grab something quick before heading out for the day. We were originally going to spend our last night at a family member's house but decided... More

We are rarely disappointed when staying at the Holiday Inn Express. Therefore, when we had a bad experience in Rochester, NY, I was surprised and disappointed. I choose this hotel because it promised a shuttle to the airport, as my daughter had an early flight in the morning. We had just driven almost 12 hours to get there due to... More
