This was our second stay at this unique Holiday Inn Express. It was brand new the previous visit and had a few quirks they had to iron out. But this visit, four months later, left us greatly pleased. The staff is very friendly, especially, Melany, at the front desk. The hotel is exceptionally clean and well maintained. The breakfast was great--not just the same thing every morning. They change the meat and egg offerings so it's not boring if you're staying there for more than a few days. When we stayed the first time, we couldn't access HBO. They have fixed that, too, even better than we had anticipated. They offer the best selection of channels-especially HD-than any other hotel we visit. The have HBO AND Showtime, which is almost unheard of at most hotels. It is especially wonderful for those of us visiting the Mayo Clinic and are confined to our rooms for some of the time. Thank you for that! Also, their bedding is fantastic. The beds are very comfortable with a choice of pillow selection.There was one problem we encountered, however, which was rectified after a few tries. I reserved a 2 bed queen and specified away from elevators and vending. I placed this reservation 3 months in advance. However, when we got there on a Sunday afternoon, they gave me a room DIRECTLY ACROSS from the elevators. Because they weren't busy at that time on Sunday, I was able to get an acceptable room. If not for that, I would have given them a rating of 5. But, all in all, the hotel and staff were very helpful. I hope they continue to keep their guests as happy as we were!
