I entered the lobby and the desk clerk greeted me with a look of indiference and stated, "we have 2 rooms left and they are very expensive." He was 100% correct about that.
No "what can I do for you? Do you have a reservation?" Nothing! I told him I had a reservation and he took care of the booking with the enthusiasim of getting a root canal. I am a Platinmum Priority Club member and I had to ask if they had any bottled water. His response, "sure, if you want it."
I went to my room and found it to be spacious and clean. What I did not expect was to be hit in the face with a blasting wall heater set at nearly 80 degrees. The tempurature was in the low 90's outside and I did not expect the room to be nearly as hot. I called the front desk and was met with indifference.
Breakfast. The breakfast at Holiday Inn Express has a certain sameness all across the country. Here it was different. It was one of the poorest attempts at breakfast I have ever found in a H-I Express. The biscuits were near perfect. The gravy had the consistancy of water, the scrambled eggs weren't fully cooked and there was no meat entree. Pretty well sums it up.
Would I stay here again? Only if I was dead tired, the price was more reasonable and Medford and Ashland were booked.
