I have never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express this old. Even though the furniture is OK and they have LCD TVs, the carpeting, bathroom fixtures, wall and AC/heating are old. The rooms are decent sized - very deep but not very wide. I guess this is not unusual for HIEs I have been to.
The staff is nice but the early morning staff are not as friendly - maybe it is too early in the day. I left for work pretty early and not a single day the guy looked up and greeted me.
Sound proofing is not so good between the rooms. One night, the empty room next door's radio went off and I could not go back to sleep. I had to get the clerk to turn it off.
The hotel is near the I-96. The even numbered rooms - especially those with lower numbers, are noisier. The higher numbered ones are near the Meijer store so you can hear things too.
The Internet is inconsistent for some reason.
