He had stayed previously at the other two major hotel chains in Sanford and wanted to try the Holiday Inn Express. We were very pleased with the room (king room) which had a little sitting area also and... More

Everything about this hotel is above average. I've been in numerous hotels around the states and this is one of the best. Walking distance to many local stores and restaurants. Free sweet tea in the lobby and good free breakfast every morning. The staff went above and beyond, just what you'd expect from southern hospitality. A welcome experience after returning... More

I travel to Sanford every week and have been staying at the Comfort Inn and Suites directly across the street from the Holiday Inn Express. I was staying at the Comfort Inn mainly because it was the newest hotel in the area and had a good rate. This week we had several people from our Corporate office come to Sanford... More

Very nice hotel. Good clean rooms, great service. Great free breakfast with good food to choose from, sweet ice tea available all day, very refreshing. As expected for a Holiday Inn Express. Nice to have free in room wifi and a work desk for your laptop computer.

Staff was very personable & entered into conversation with us without seeming rushed or bothered. Hotel amenities and comfort of the beds were exceptional. Angie Minnick's customer service was also exceptional. When the staff learned we were there for a funeral, they immediately offered their condolences & offered any help they could give. We plan on staying at this location... More

Stayed here during the US Open. My company had 6 rooms. The staff was so nice and helpful. The rooms were perfect for our purposes and quite clean. We typically stay at higher end properties but the Holiday Inn Express in Sanford was a very good alternative. Would absolutely stay there again.
