We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express last weekend because we visited Safari Park. The room wasn't bad, although there was a cigarette burn in the curtain in our non-smoking room. The desk staff did help suggest a local restaurant and drew a map to help us locate it. However, the morning breakfast that we hoped to enjoy was aborted when we discovered at least two homeless people mounding plates in the line with us. They were smelly and unkempt, giving us cause for concern. We walked to the nearby Coco's that more than filled the bill. It was open, staffed by a friendly server and the food was excellent. Unless they are more diligent about maintaining a quality environment in the breakfast area, l would not suggest staying at this location.
