    The staff was very friendly and helpful when we arrived. Our grandkids, ages 4 & 6, loved the pool and slides. The room were spacious and it was very quiet at night. The breakfast was excellent. The kids loved the pancakes!

    The holiday inn express was a great stay. The pool was perfect for the kids. Had a great water slide. Rooms were big enough to hold the whole family. Staff was friendly when arrived. Breakfast was great. Will stay again.
