I love Holiday Inn Expresses.
Pros about this one:
Desk people are fabulous, helpful, and have a sense of humor.
There is always coffee.
The rooms are absolutely clean, and the bathtub/shower is easy to control. (This is more important than you might think).
The room is quiet.
The exercise room has treadmills with BUILT IN FANS! This is a wonderful thing.
The pool area has lots and lots of shade.
Did I mention the delicious coffee?
Oh, and if the desk clerk offers you a cookie... take it. They are magic and will make your day better.
The downside (all minor):
Probably the worst thing is that in the bathroom, the counter space is almost not there. If you don't move the ice container out, you don't have room for anything. It would also be nice to have little hooks to hang your towels on to keep them off the floor.
The mattress was a bit firm for my taste, but certainly nothing wrong with that. You might like it that way.
The wi fi is very slow and sporadic. Yes, they know about it, and they've been trying to get something done. They have a router/node for each floor, so whoever recently set this up still has some fixing to do.
They have no-fat and 2% milk at breakfast, but no whole milk. I curse Dr. Keyes for telling America to go low fat. He was an idiot.
