Stayed only a few hours as we were stopping off during a 13 hour car ride. Beds were very comfortable and the decor was very pleasant. The only thing I would mark it down for was the size of the breakfast eating area. Had a nice selection but seating was very limited. There were several seniors choosing to sit at... More

This appears to be a fairly new hotel. There was a rip in the room darkening window covering and the shower faucet/handle was extremely loose (it seemed as though it could easily fall off). I felt that there was absolutely no ability to block noise through the walls of our room. I could hear every little noise from the room... More

Stayed here for one night while traveling. It is easy to find. No odors. Seems new with interior doors. All staff we encountered from check in to check out were very pleasant and friendly. We booked a king suite which was very roomy. The angle of the TV from the sofa is a little weird. Super high ceilings. Great water... More

I had to wait over 5 minutes to check in as there was no front desk staff???? King bed room was nice, comfy bed, too soft pillows. Exercise room was pitiful, 3 machines, TV didn't work, bicycle felt as if it was going to fall apart., no free weights....Breakfast buffet was very good with many choices.

The Hotel was clean and looked nice. Another great stay at a Holiday Inn Express. The pool was a little on the small side, but was okay. The beds were comfortable also. The guy that checked us in was very friendly and was quick to get us setup in our room.
