“Great Stay/Close to Highway 70”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Greeted by pleasant staff member and HOT chocolate chip cookies. As a Priority Member, received a bottle of water and a piece of candy. Room was large with: microwave, refrigerator, flat screen TV. Great bed linens and pillows. Bathroom had great light. Amenties were: hair dryer, soap, shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. Only complaint, very rough towels. Easy check in/out.

Room Tip: Rooms on southwest side face highway.

Staff was wonderful just wish they would've mentioned members club...would've joined. Very nice and clean rooms. Breakfast selection nice. The only things that would've made it perfect: less hall noise, better latching doors, facilities such as exercise room open all night, adjoining rooms or a suite to equal at least four beds and two bathrooms....but this was great and I'm going to stay with holiday from now on:) tired of being disappointed with others and I've never had a horrible experience with holiday Inns. Thank you.

Excellent stay. Entire staff was very friendly and helpful. Place is clean and well maintained. Has a nice gym, pool and hot tub. Breakfast was consistently good. Only complaint was that fresh fruit wasn't replenished and of course that the black out shades didn't meet well in the middle. A very common problem at most places. Even the "in room" coffee was good, a point I always rail about.
Talked to people that stayed at the two other "major" hotels here in town - sounds like this is the place to be - even if it costs a bit more. We also liked the later check out. Kudos to Holiday Inn Express Vandalia! It's located conveniently right off exit 61. Wal-Mart, Ponderosa, a BBQ joint within easy walking distance. Go to the liquor store down the road and pick up a token for the "fire breathing steel dragon".

Room Tip: I'd suggest getting an EVEN numbered room facing away from Wal-Mart (eastardly)as semis by the d...

I've stayed in this hotel many times while traveling for work in Southern Illinois, or on my way to St. Louis. The staff has always been so polite and helpful, the breakfast is typical Holiday Inn Express fare, but it's always well stocked and clean. The workout room and pool are usually in good working order and well maintained. The rooms are always very nice, and have been recently updated. Plus, the price is great! One of the best value hotels I've stayed at.

Room Tip: I usually request a 3rd floor room for a little quieter stay, and generally, more upgraded rooms.

What a great hotel in the middle of almost nowhere. I noticed a sign stated the pool heater was down, strange for such a new hotel. The hotel and staff were great. you can always count on Holiday Inn for a great free breakfast.

Room Tip: Pool heater was down but hotel was great

We checked in around two am one night traveling across the Midwest. The front desk was extremely helpful on locating a crib for us. The hotel looks brand new. This was our third Holiday Inn Express on this trip and it was by far the best. Everything was just nicer than the rest. The breakfast was slightly better too- fully stocked, pancake machine actually working, two types of yogurt etc. Plus check out was at noon! Great stay.
