“Adequate accommodations for business in the Manchester area”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

I stayed two nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Manchester while on a business conference at the Gossick Leadership Center at Arnold Air Force Base. The Holiday Inn Express makes a very convenient location for business at Arnold AFB and the Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC). The hotel is located just off of I-24 is only about a 15-20 minute drive to the Leadership Center and even less to AEDC.

As for the HIE itself, I found it to be clean and comfortable, as well as affordable, but nothing really outstanding. The staff personnel who I dealt with (all at the front desk) were very friendly and quite helpful. Beyond that, it is really just an average or a little better establishment. Here are some observations:

I was in a king room on the first floor. The room had plenty of space and was well appointed. In the main area was the king size bed, two night stands, a large chair and footstool, desk with an office chair and a dresser. Appliances in the bedroom included a flat screen TV (not sure of the size, but not huge), a small refrigerator and a microwave. Overall, very well appointed. The bed was comfy and I slept very well.

The bathroom was good size and had all the niceties. There were plenty of towels and all the little bottles of stuff (shampoo, conditioner, lotion and mouthwash). There was a hairdryer in the bathroom as well as a coffee maker along with fixings for coffee and tea (I drink neither, so no idea if this stuff was really useful).

There is free wifi available in the rooms, which is a plus. But there were negatives as well. It was a little noisy in the room. The air conditioning and the refrigerator both were a little loud (not significant but it could be an issue for a light sleeper). Also there seemed to be an issue with the hot water. Now there was plenty of water pressure, but the water temperature never got steamy. Both when showering or shaving, I had the facets turned to full heat but the water just got to warm (comfortable enough for a shower, but certainly not hot).

The HIE also offers a free breakfast, which is a nice touch, but it is a limited selection. The only fruit were green bananas. There were bagels, breads and muffins, plus hot and cold cereals and a few hot entrees (biscuits and gravy, eggs and bacon or sausage), plus a pancakes. Good enough to get your morning started, but also an artery clogging experience if you do not choose wisely.

There is a small pool and fitness center (two treadmills and two elliptical machines). The fitness center opens at 5:00 AM (not sure of the closing time). There is not a business center in the HIE, but there is a computer in the lobby for the guests to use for printing boarding passes and checking email.

I was a little discouraged with that the cleaning carts were lined-up in the hallway to the rooms early in the morning. It is just not that pleasant of a sight to see all the cleaning carts waiting there as you come and go from breakfast.

My stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Manchester was adequate. The place server my needs but offered no frills, not that I was looking for any. I would stay here in the future, but I would also be open to other options in the area.

The front desk staff were very friendly and called me by name. They made me feel welcome. The room was clean, but could use a little updating. However it is still a good value and in a convenient location just off of I-24. The breakfast was good, seemed to be fresh, and the lady keeping everything stocked was very friendly. I did not use the pool or exercise room, so I will not comment. They also have a meeting facility if you need it.

This was a nice surprise after a long travel day. We had a room at the end of the hallway, very clean and comfortable beds. They were repaving the front parking area, but it didn't cause any problems. Just stayed for one night- very easy on and off the interstate, with a Starbucks right next door that had a drive through. Although the breakfast was just fine at the hotel, too!

In order to tour some of the state parks of Tennessee, we needed a "mid point" to stay and launch some photo oppotunities. the Holiday Inn Express in Manchester fit the needs perfectly. I had no issues in the room, with the phone, tv or internet. They all worked great. I would stay there again any time!

The facility and room were clean. The front desk was friendly and efficient. Two complaints - the pool was not open. Brad said "it was that time of year" , it was Labor Day weekend and after a hot eight hour motorcycle ride, the pool was badly missed.
The room AC groaned when it ran, loud enough that I turned up the temperature control to reduce the amount of time the unit ran.
