“Best Express by Holiday Inn that I've ever used”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2008

This is the hotel in Keith Street. Hamilton. No car park but there is a public car park next door and my car was safe enough there.
I stay in loads of Holiday Inn Express thingies and Travel Lodges and don't write a review unless they are very good or very bad. This is very good. Exceptionally clean, helpful staff, air conditioned room and I;ll stay there again when I'm in the area. It was good value and, as I say, by far the best Express by Holiday Inn that I have ever used.

  • Liked — Clean and good value
  • Disliked — No hotel car park but a public car park next door
  • Stayed September 2008, traveled on business

I recently spent a night in this new Express by Holiday Inn at Hamilton. It was very easy to locate, just off junction 6 of the M74. When booking however I failed to note that the hotel does not have its own parking. This threw me completely when we arrived and I ended up parking in front of the adjacent Vue cinema where prominent notices declared there was a 4hr maximum parking time...

When checking-in the hotel staff assured me the car would be okay until 1pm the following day as the car-park was only monitored between 9am-5pm. Happily we were away by 9.15am the following morning and encountered no problems.

The hotel public-areas are modern and attractive and our room - 323 - was the same. Breakfast was fine (though lacking in bagels which I usually enjoy at a HI Express breakfast buffet).

The next day we headed into Glasgow city-centre via the M74/A74/London Road. From the Express by Holiday Inn Hamilton this was a quick and easy journey.

All in all a very satisfactory stay.

Stayed July 2008

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a 3 night break and we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is fairly new, staff helpful, rooms modern and has excellent access to the motorways system - minutes away from the highway.
Its a 2 minute walk into the lovely town of Hamilton, nice restaurants and pubs to wind down.
Definately would recommend the hotel to others and infact my wife have booked another weekend stay in 2 weeks time.
Municipal parking area opposite the hotel, alternatively, one can use the supermarket parking just behind the hotel ( restrictions apply). Breakfast is Hol Inn Express fare, no better, no worse - enough said!
Hamilton has easy access to the central belt which encompasses both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Liked — close to the town, within easy walking distance
  • Disliked — same 'ol breakfast - hot would be nice
  • Stayed February 2008, traveled as a couple
