Checked into the HIE on the way through Ohio. Had stayed here before and it was ok; the pretty typical HIE which is usually good. Now I have a IHG card and am a frequent flyer with HIE and usually get a decent room; not this time. We were given a room on the second floor and after dumping our...

We were in town for work. The location was convenient to our job, food and shopping. Overall the room was clean, spacious and comfortable for our week long stay. Breakfast was good.

In town for a horse show. If you are showing at Roberts Arena World Equestrian Center, this is one of two nice hotels nearby at which to stay, Hampton next door being the other. Not too far to run back and forth from the show grounds. Hotel is slightly newer, clean, no maintenance issues, friendly front desk. Added a night...

Husband and I were traveling back home from a Memorial Day trip. Could not find a hotel room on our route (all booked) so we went 20 miles further and got the last room which was a handicap room at this hotel ( no big deal). The room had a bad urine oder. It needed a good cleaning with bleach....

We had a nice time in Wilmington and this hotel was in a nice location. Staff was friendly and the room was clean. It was a smaller community and the other visitors seemed very kind. There was an Aldies and Family Dollar right next to the hotel and Wal-Mart and a plaza of other stores very close by. There were...

I use IHG brand hotels every chance I can because they are always staffed by friendly people, clean rooms, and a good complimentary breakfast (at most). My only complaint here is that this one was close to our daughters volleyball tourney, and I told them they could swim and enjoy the hot tub. Our 2 girls were excited to use...

NateD, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I totally understand the disappointment of your two daughters when they found that the hot tub had been removed. Unfortunately, we had to make a very difficult decision about that hot tub, sometimes those decisions aren't always the popular ones with the guests, but have to be made...

Service was excellent. I was most impressed with Jeanine following up with me the next day to let me know I had left my Kindle behind.
