This is not your regular Holiday Inn Express and Suites it is an upscale Holiday Inn Express & Suites. The moment you enter the lobby you can tell that they owner/staff members take pride in this property. The breakfast is the same as all the others.
Instead of taking a change at the Holiday Inn Express around I-81/77 conjunction near Bristol VA that they would have a room available we stopped at Kingsport TN. Be warn when you arrive at night fall you do need to paid close attention to the turn off, the turn is on a crest of a hill and it is very easy to miss. What a surprise as we drove up to the entrance to see that the owner/staff took the time to put out Christmas lights and it didn't stop there. As you walked into the entrance we felt like we were walking into someone home at Christmas time. Very cozy lobby that was all deck out for Christmas with wing back chairs around the fire in the fireplace. In the dining area there were three decorated Christmas trees, in the glass show cases-Christmas tea pots/coffee cups, cookie jars, in other words Christmas decorations everywhere. Very tasteful done.
When you are on the road about 200 days out of the year for decades you appreciated the extra effect that hotel staff members do. From all of the Holiday Inn's, Express, that we stayed in not one when out of their way to decorate for Christmas or in fact other Holidays like Kingsport Holiday Inn Express & Suites.
If my battery didn't die on me there would have been more pictures posted.
Will stay here again.
