We were traveling south and this was a good stopping place before heading into the hills of West Virginia. I booked this ahead as it was a Friday night and I didn't want to not have a place to stay. Got a good price and we were happy with the stay. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable bed and a great... More

I was very happy to have a nice ironing board, with a clean tight cover on it. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and I slept... More

If you are looking for a place to stop while traveling down 77. This hotel will do just nicely. There place is updated, had DirecTV for TV. A few nice restaurants around to choose from. Staff is friendly and the rooms are cozy. Little more pricey than I expected for the area

We stay at HIE's all the time because they never let us down, this is right off the interstate and a short drive to the Capitol and the state museum. The staff here is very pleasant and there is a good steak place nearby.

We checked in here for one night on our way home from Florida. When we got in the room, we found it to be rather untidy - the floors didn't appear to have swept in a while and even more disgusting when we turned the bed back, there was a large yellow stain on the underside of the comforter that...
