My family of 4 (two kids, ages 5 and 3) stayed one night while on a road trip home from vacation. We had a king suite room. The room was spotless and large. It had a sitting area with a pull out sofa bed and then plenty of space on the other side of the king bed for a blow... More

The hotel was well situated off of I-95. Room was large, long and nicely decorated. We reserved a king bed and bed was comfortable and very clean and new. Desk was friendly. The breakfast had both hot and cold selections. The cheese omelets were very good. Muffins were moist and selection of juices were included. I loved the automatic pancake... More

After searching all night for a hotel with vacancies we spoke with Yolanda at the holiday inn express and she was super nice. They were booked beside one room that someone complained had smelled like someone smoked in it. She gave us a discount and we happily took it after about 10 other hotels with no vacancies. Everything else was... More

The staff at the desk were very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean, upscale, and very comfortable for a one-night stay during an I-95 road trip. And the breakfast the next morning was ready an hour ahead of the scheduled time and whomever made the sausage gravy and biscuits should be given a medal because they were outstanding.

This hotel was easy to get to off of I-95. It was clean, and quiet, even though we were near the elevator. The pool was clean, and just right for kids to cool off after a long ride in the car. It seemed that the night desk was a little short staffed, but VERY friendly. I would stay here again... More

My husband and I made this reservation in Emporia to accommodate a business appointment. I booked a king room through Hotels.com.

We have been coming and staying at this establishment for 5 hrs now. As always, met with a smile from Mia at the front desk and her GM Syed. They are the main reason we come back each year as we pass though. Rooms are well maintained, gym and pool area are as well kept as any overpriced snob hotel.... More

Great place for our overnight stay. Friendly staff, clean and well maintained facility and great breakfast for a reasonable price in a convenient, but quiet, location. It ranks very high on our list of stops on our frequent trips along Interstate 95.

This was just a one night stay to rest during a long car trip. The room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. The staff was courteous. There is a microwave, coffee pot, and small refrigerator. However, neither of the phones worked, so we couldn't contact the front desk without calling the 800 number from the cell phone. It's alarming... More
