“Still like this place but I did not care for the pictures in the room this time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Lovely facility - great workout room, great high definition TV in the room, nice towels, quiet in the room - all the things I expected from the Holiday Inn Express.
This time, I had a room on the 4th floor and I am uncertain if the Hollywood Icon photos are in all the rooms, or only some. There was a photo of Humphrey Bogart that seemed to stare at the bed and one of Mr. Bogart that seemed to stare into the bathroom. I would have preferred to have pictures of scenery, still life, some bucolic country setting - these photos creeped me out. But other than that, all was swell.

Room Tip: Ask for a room WITHOUT Mr. Bogart pictures....

Dear Lstew55,

Thank you for your second review and glad you chose us again for your stay. The Hollywood photos are all throughout the hotel and rooms because of our 40s Hollywood themed scheme. On your next visit, we will make sure a different room is provided for you. Come back and see us soon.

Thank you,

The service and the room was great. We will definitely stay hear again. Location was very good. Easy off and on and good restaurants nearby or in the same parking lot. Front desk personnel were very accomodating. We were on Motorcycles and they were helpful for where to park them.

We were pleased and surprised at how comfortable/QUIET/clean this hotel was. They were always cleaning. Nice touch with the Tuesday/Wednesday evening snacks in common area. Good breakfasts variety in common area. Grandchildren ,of course, loved the pool and snack store. Plus cookies at the end of the day!! Only thing--beds were slightly soft which is hard on the backs and missed fan in the bathroom as mirror would steam up--not good for women's hair styles. Desk staff very helpful and courteous. Very covenient to son's home.
Would be nice if could open windows to let in fresh air!!!

Room Tip: Top floor on the back side. However, this may ,in the future, not be as nice as looks like going to...

This was our first time to visit in Allen, Texas. WE arrived at our hotel and were impressed with the outside. Everything was well groomed and very clean. The inside was just as inviting. We were greeted and got checked in in a timely manner and given our priority gift. Our room was on the first floor as we had asked for and it was most inviting.Our stay was excellent. The bed was excellent. The room and the halls were very quiet. Breakfast was excellent and a very friendly staff greeted us upon our arrival for breakfast. We would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and others. The location was very close to our meeting, shopping , and eating.

The hotel was nice. It had everything we've come to expect from a Holiday Inn Express, where we stay more than 60 nights per year. The breakfast was very good. The room was clean. Check-in was fast. We will stay here again.

We stayed here as a stop on our way home from a quick trip and needed somewhere clean, quiet, comfortable and convenient. That is what we found here. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was as expected. We plan to make this our stopping point each time we make that quick trip.

Have always stayed an another chain hotel when in Allen, but because of this hotel's location, decided to try it. Was pleasantly surprised--nice hotel, great staff and comfortable, clean accomodations. Located within walking distance of an Arby's, a Mexican restaurant, and an incredibly long strip shopping center that has a Tom Thumb Grocery (a hefty walk from the hotel) as well as many other shopping options. The breakfast was good (loved the pancake machine!). This is standard Holiday Inn Express facility--nothing fancy, but very adequate for the business traveler. I got a good rate, as well! Member of my work group all shared that we would stay at this hotel, again. The only detraction I can offer was a confused reservation (mine was attached to another member of my party). It had to be repaired at both check-in and check-out. Staff were quick to respond--so it really didn't end up being that big of a deal.

Room Tip: Stay on the side oopposite the freeway.
