Reviewed February 3, 2014

we were tired after our delayed flight and didn't find a hotel till 1030pm. We saw this hotel and, having stayed at a Holiday Inn Express, we were confident in finding a good place. Esther met us at the desk and couldn't have been nicer or more sympathetic with our tired old selves. We checked into room 213 and it was very nice; king-size bed with a fluffy comforter and perfect pillows. The shower and bathroom amenities were a welcome after a day of travel. We slept like royalty. The next morning we had a satisfying breakfast of scrambled eggs, toast, muffins, yoghurt, juice. My husband tried the sausage gravy and biscuits and was pleasantly surprised at the taste. I would love to visit the area again and stay in this hotel.

The room was immaculately clean and fresh, even though we had a smoking room.

Our suite was spacious but had a very musty smell. Except for the odor, the room was clean though ready for an update. The staff we encountered were all very friendly and helpful. The free breakfasts offered a good variety and were nicely prepared. There was a cold snap during our stay and something on the front doors had broken so they couldn't be closed for a couple of days and while that did not affect us it seemed to be a symptom of the need to update.

From the moment we entered the lobby to the time we checked out a week later, we received outstanding service. The hotel staff was friendly, helpful, professional and had a great attitude. The breakfast was outstanding, with slight variations everyday from western omelets, biscuits and gravy, pancakes and cinnamon rolls. The room was clean, the internet was fast, and the housekeepers never disturbed us, yet provided great service. The laundry room was clean as was the work-out room. We needed a baby crib, extra pillows, sheets and blankets and were provided everything with enthusiasm and no extra charge. The kids enjoyed the complimentary cookies at the front desk and the adults enjoyed the free coffee and juice all day long. We enjoyed our stay mainly because of the great attitude of the staff, and when our family comes to visit us, we are going to make sure that they stay at the Holiday Inn Express, so that they may enjoy the same experience that we did. Thank you for an OUTSTANDING experience!

Room Tip: We had a suite. It was perfect. Nice little kitchen area and plenty of space to relax.

We stayed here with our two small sons in June. The room was very dark, smelled like stale smoke, even though it was a non smoking room, and the carpet felt damp. We decided to turn on the a/c and see if that would help before we left for dinner - it didn't help at all. After we were ready for bed we saw a pretty big "critter" run across the floor and called the front desk for help. The woman was very nice, understood why we were upset, and offered to move us to another room. (The a/c unit was on the floor; we think that's where the critter came in, so she moved us to a second floor unit). Our second room was much nicer. We slept good and had no problems after that. I just think the accommodations are too pricey for what you get.

Room Tip: Choose a second floor room.

Thank you for taking the time out and giving your feedback on your stay. I do apologize for the inconvenience of the ac. I am glad that our front desk staff was able to relocate you to a higher floor where you were more comfortable. We do have a commercial pest control company that services our property 2 times a month. As for the ac being on the floor I will have our maintenance dept. make sure all is buttoned up tight to prevent this from happening again. We encourage all of our guest to report good and bad things. It helps us strive for excellence and create a great hotel guest love to come back to. We do hope to see you again the next time you are in the area.

I recently stayed at this hotel and let me just tell you, the smell of mold filled my nose the moment I walked in the lobby. My room wasn't much better. The staff mentioned they had recently renovated the rooms, well they should have included the bathrooms. My room was infested with ants and when I asked the staff, the only answer or solution they could give me was to move my room. I did so, and that room was worse then the first room. Mold! Mold! Mold!

If you want Quiet, this is the place. Not so much because of the setting, but because there is no one here, literally. There were two cars in the lot and when I had breakfast, i was the only ine there the entire time.i was here for 15 hours and saw one other guest in the hallway. It was like having a private hotel. Rooms are clean, new equipment in the gym, and staff was friendly. I will say the priority gift was lacking, being just a small bottle of water. There are not many places to eat that are convenient, but overall, I would stay again. My biggest problem was the phones. My kept ringing over and over at night, then started again at 5 am. When answering there was a clicking noise, so I am assuming it was something messed up with wake up call service. I finally disconnected both phones to sleep after front desk couldn't figure it out. It is on a beautiful lake, but you can't see it because the willows are so overgrown. Overall, if I am back in the area, I will stay here again because besides the phone thing, it was very quiet, relaxing, and peaceful to stay.
