Nice new hotel. Very nice decor in room and lobby. Comfy beds. Good breakfast choices, however we did notice the lady taking care of the food did not always have gloves on. Training needed, otherwise a very nice hotel.

We stayed at this hotel while in the area for a family reunion. I have seldom been disappointed in a Holiday Inn Express and this one was no exception. Even though our stay was free because I had enough priority points, I had checked the price before I realized I had enough. It was reasonbly priced.

The room was huge. Perhaps one of the largest hotel rooms I have been in for quite a long time. We had a king size bed, comfortable chair, desk and chair, and the refrigerator and microwave were stored in the stand for the television.

The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed two restful nights. On Sunday morning some of the families in the hotel got a little rowdy about 8:30 but I realize not everyone likes to sleep in as much as we do.

Overall it was a very good stay and I would recommend this hotel.

We stay on Holiday Inns and Holiday Inn Express's quite frequently. This particular one is definitely in the upper half where the rooms, staff, and amenities are concerned.

The only drawback is the wireless internet speed. This is the first HIE that we have stayed in where the internet speed is so slow. We could not even get the weather map on weather.com to come up because it kept timing out. We did a speed test on speedtest.net and it showed the download speed was less than 1 m/sec. We tried the speed test at various times during the day and night and it stayed about the same. So, if you are planning on doing any type of web surfing while in the room I suggest that you try a different hotel.

I rated the location as poor because it is extremely difficult to find the way in to the hotel. Once you find it though, it is not difficult. They need more signage to show the way for the first-time guests.

Room Tip: Try to stay away from the pool and exercise room entrances. The doors to these two areas seem to sl...

This Holiday Inn was nearly brand new and very clean. The staff was very helpful when we requested an early check in due to a health problem. The breakfast was the normal Holiday Inn fare but there was plenty of room for everyone to sit at a table. Nice place

There is a group of chain hotels all together just off the highway in Somerset. We picked the Holiday Inn Express because they have queen size beds in most rooms, not doubles.
We were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely room, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast included eggs and fresh biscuits in addition to the usual bagels, cereal etc.
Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful. Clean, quiet, and convenient.
We are a family of four, traveling for pleasure. I would recommend this hotel to pretty much any traveler.

We spent a night in this hotel, and found it to be very clean, bright, and welcoming. The breakfast area is probably as clean as I have seen anywhere. The pool was nice as well. I highly recommend this hotel.
