“Thank You! Thank You John!”
Reviewed July 16, 2005

On July 3, our group experienced problems with our reservations at another establishment . So...here we were in Wilmington on a holiday weekend for a softball tournament...with no place to stay. A local person suggested we try the Holiday Inn Express. We arrived at Holiday Inn express and John Hendrix (guest services) went above and beyond to assist our party in finding a room. The time and effort John put forth is commendable, he handled our situation with true professionalism. Not only did he go out of his way to assist us in finding a room and then took the time and effort to follow-up with us to make sure we were enjoying our stay.
We travel quite often to Wilmington and will not hesitate to stay at Holiday Inn Express!
All I can say is Thank You! Thank You! Thank You John!

The staff was extremely friendly. Some of the best I have encountered. The rooms were spacious and mine had a fridge, microwave and coffee pot. The only problem was that for a non-smoking room, I constanly smelled smoke. Why do hotels put non-smoking rooms directly above smoking rooms?..... HELLO.... smoke rises. Overall the hotel was good and was in a convenient location. I would stay here again.
