Spent a night here in the way to final destination. Bed is good, shower was great, breakfast is what it usually is for a Holiday Inn Express. Everything was good. Quiet room on top level. I will definitely stop by again when I come through.

The location of this hotel is great. You are walking distance to many of the restaurants and shopping. The staff that checked me in was nice as was the cleaning staff. The free breakfast was good for being a free breakfast. My bed was comfortable and clean. However this place needs some serious maintenance and upgrades. The shower head and... More

Well we were just about ready to give up on Holiday Express because they are pretty much hit and miss as far as cleanliness and updating. Decided to get a free points night since we had enough and give them one more try. We got lucky. This was a good one. The room was very clean and updated. The sheets... More

My son and I stayed here for one night after driving all day from Michigan. This was our first stop on a road trip out west.

We stayed one night while traveling. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room had two comfortable Queens and a sofa (but no TV in the sofa area) along with refrig and microwave and a nice clean bathroom. Breakfast had hot items, cinnamon rolls, and the usual cereals, muffins, juice etc. Room was quiet. Great visit as usual.

An older Holiday Inn Express, clean but dated rooms. No restaurant on site but several chain restaurants are close by, within walking distance. Upkeep on the hotel is generally good but during my stay, the single elevator went out. My room on the third floor was very inconvenient without elevator service. I didn't see much concern with fixing the elevator... More

Thanks for your feedback! We're sorry our staff on third floor missed assisting you with your luggage. It's unfortunate we were without an elevator for a few hours; however we tried hard to ensure all guests had the assistance they needed. We're glad you enjoyed the rest of our hotel.
