Hey, it's a Holiday Inn Express next to a motorway. This is the second time that I've stayed here (in the same room, oddly). It's perfectly fine.
The hotel still contracts out their internet service to Swisscom, which unfortunately is both expensive and woefully inadequate (VERY slow, like dial-up slow, spotty service) even when I paid for the more expensive "business class" option.
I ended up using the free internet (and having a nice meal and a pint) at the pub across the parking lot. The management of the HIE is aware of just how terrible their internet service is but I would guess their hands are contractually tied because all they could offer me was a well practiced (and frustrated) apology.
If you're traveling on business and need internet, there are other hotels closer to downtown Stafford that have free and good quality internet, or be prepared to eat the pub across from the HIE a lot!
