We stayed on our way from update New York back to Philadelphia. We chose this location in order to visit the nearby Corning Museum of Glass the next day.
The hotel is very nice. It's not fancy but the room was nice and clean and provided everything we needed. Breakfast is good and was included in our rate - so there's at least $20 we saved right there. The hotel is located right off the highway and is very close to a huge shopping area and to the local airport.
The hotel has an outdoor pool but we haven't used it. It looks pretty nice though.

I have stayed in HIE in the past, and found them ok, considering the "Express" in the title (I kind of associate it with "drive-thru/fast food"). This time though my experience was very different . Checked-in for what I thought was 2 nights, but next day morning I see the bill/receipt that was slipped under the door. Since normally you get the bill only on the day of your checkout, I was surprised by the bill for one night that also had something like "thank you for staying with us, have a nice day". I called front desk, and the lady told me I had to check-out since they didn't have that room for 2 nights, and that I would be checking into a different, non-smoking room with king bed for the second night. I was also told I could keep the luggage in the office, which I did. So I come back to the hotel in the evening, tired after a full day of work and some hiking, and they couldn't find any reservation for me in the system! The lady (different from the one who had assured me in the morning about the room switch) then calls someone, and finally locates the reservation but apparently all they have is a smoking room. Having no choice, I took it even though I hated to have to sleep in a smoking room.

First of all, they did not tell me when checking in for the first night that I would have to switch room the next day; and then they didn't have the room type I was assured in the morning when checking in for the second night. Temperature control in the room was another project - they had three different controls on the wall along with setting for summer heat, summer cool, winter heat etc. instead of one simple thermostat where one could just set the temperature one wants. I was glad to check out of there and I know that I would not even consider that property if I have to be in the area again.

I generally try to stay at Holiday Inn Express's. This hotel does not live up to the brand.
The people were friendly, the location is good, and the room was reasonably clean.
That said, it is an old hotel and the bathroom is very cramped. The toilet is tiny. No wireless and the plug-in ethernet wouldn't work. The air conditioning did not work. It does have a working window, but being next to the interstate, that only invites in noise. I would not stay here again - especially at the standard rates.

Everything was great! Checking in, getting luggage to room, layout of room, cleanliness, bed comfort, bathroom/shower, etc. etc. was really nice. Because we had the Priority Card, we had a 2 pm check out time. When we rolled our luggage cart to the car, the staff was right there to take it back into the hotel. Staff was excellent. Running out of superlatives... Hope you got the idea that this was a good value.

Right by I-86, the convenience to the Expressway is lost if you need quiet to sleep. The Expressway goes all night long. Mediocre is the operative word. Nothing outstanding, just the bland predictability that I find in hotel after hotel. That said, I stayed here so I could get a good night's sleep. Because of the Expressway noise, I did not get the only thing I wanted from the place. Thus, I won't recommend it and won't go back.

I stayed at this hotel for one night this week. I frequently stay at Holiday Inn properties & must say that this one was a disappointment. The accomodations were below average & to add insult to injury, the standard room rate was $169.00 per night, or $190 total inc. taxes. I would have expected this hotel to be an $85.00 per night hotel. I would certainly not recommend it at the $169 per night rate.
