I was disappointed that this hotel would not honor a group rate or comparable price when upgrading but I was even more disappointed to find out my pricier upgrade was a smaller room than the group rate room. Staff was more helpful at check-in than whomever previously assisted me over the phone & misled me about the layout of the... More

We were a little disappointed in that the Hotel itself is older and, frankly, could use some serious updating. The sofa in our room was pretty uncomfortable. Walls are thin and you can hear everything. Having said that, it was clean and the staff was excellent. Breakfast was included and was quite good. It was our first time visiting the... More

This property was a good value for the area -- which is somewhat pricey overall. The rooms were large and clean, and the king bed we had was very comfortable. The rooms are getting somewhat old, but they are, as indicated large, and they are kept up very well. Large screen TV, as well as fridge and microwave. Bathrooms are... More

We always stay here when in town. Clean, simple, beds and showers nice. Maintenance performance was off this week. Problem with key cards meant the parking lot door was open all night. Things in room were broken, sliding mirror door, lock on door, But the desk said they would be seen to right away. Breakfast is always good. Two minutes... More

Spent a night here during a business trip. Pretty standard rooms with expected amenities. It does have a pool - which is a small one. The fitness center has a few cardio machines. Breakfast was a reasonably good spread and the breakfast staff very friendly. Nothing stood out as exceptional in my experience here.

Room was very clean every day, location was good for me to where I had to travel on 52 and 78, perfect. I would come back, if needed a hotel to stay. Have always liked Holiday Express. You need to watch the news for traffic, could be a little busy when you leave the Hotel around that area.

One of the better breakfasts I've had at hotels as far as choices, freshness, etc. Freshly baked cookies daily, ice water may be cucumber, orange or lemon, and free coffee in the lobby. Spacious & nicely appointed rooms. The staff here are friendly and very helpful. It is close to lots of things to do for kids and adults alike.... More

Very dated property. Popcorn ceilings, tiny parking spaces, so-so beds, threadbare gray towels. Noise from adjacent rooms is high. Some recent updates are OK but overall it isn't as good as other HIE properties. Also extremely slow internet. Almost not usable. I normally pick HIE for good value but this hotel jeopardizes the brand name.
