“Reasonable Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Quick on and off access to I95. Rooms nice and clean although the room deoderizer in the room we are in is slightly strong. Lots of restaurants and gas stations in close proximity. The room is well stocked and everything works. A reasonable value.

We stopped in Emporia on our way back from Florida to New Jersey. It's a great location to stop with lots of motels, places to eat within walking distance, get some groceries, etc. We chose the Sleep Inn because it was newer, pet friendly, and had good reviews on TA. I was traveling with my husband and parents and my 40lb. dog. Pet fee was $15 per night.

All of the pet rooms are located on the top (4th) floor, which is smart, in my opinion. On the way to Florida, we stayed in a different place with pet rooms on the bottom floor and we heard people walking on our heads all night, which in turn, makes the dog bark. On the top floor, not a peep from our pup.

The room was very clean and modern with a large king-sized bed and new linens. The room was also equipped with a desk and chair, flat screen television, mini-fridge and microwave. There was a closet with safe, ironing board and iron. The bathroom was large with a long counter top, and bathtub with shower. These rooms did not have the walk in shower that was mentioned in other reviews. My only complaint is with the pillows. They were the newer variety of short, square pillows and very squishy.

The breakfast was perfectly acceptable with make your own waffles, assorted breads and pastries, cereal, juices and even hot eggs and sausage patties.

Overall we were very pleased with our overnight stay at the Sleep Inn.

FYI, if you're planning on stopping here for the night, don't get gas in this vicinity. The gas was over 30 cents per gallon cheaper one exit further south.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are the pet rooms. I believe they were also the smoking rooms at one time. The hal...

We have stayed at Sleep Inn Emporia since it has opened. This year we stopped again. It is still a very good value, easy access and friendly staff. This year our room was a bit "off" for some reason. We walked in and the bathroom floor was sticky, our footprints easily showing, the toilet seat worn and the room had a distinct strong odor. This is not good for those of us who are sensitive to strong odors. I would have opened the windows to air out the place but most hotels and upper floors have windows that do not open for safety reasons. I asked the front desk if something could be done about the bathroom floor and the toilet seat. Since housecleaning was gone for the day, the front desk clerk came up with a mop and cleaned the floor. She too noticed the stickiness and her footprints on the floor while she was cleaining. I pointed out the toilet seat and she said she had put in a request to change it already. (FYI, the front desk clerk did say she would change our room but we did not change.) She said she would have someone look into the cleaning products to see if that was the cause of the strong odor. The room itself was clean overall. However, our clothes the next day did smell "off" from being in the room and my nightclothes smelled like "pet", although this was not a pet room. The towels are getting a bit thinner, I noticed. Despite that, breakfast choices are good, the computer works fine, the staff most friendly and accommodating. I told the front desk that I wanted them to continue to keep their good rating and pointed out things that needed to be done in the room. I am sure they will get done. This is a good hotel to be at, shopping nearby, gas stations around and easy access on and off the highway.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors. It is quiet and you get a better view. There is a cotton field...

We made this a stop for our long car ride down to Florida from the northeast. We found it to be a nicely decorated and overall clean hotel. Pleasantly surprised by our lovely king bed suite. Tastefully decorated. High ceilings. Flat screen tv, refrigerator , coffee maker in the room. All accommodations for your electronic equipment. IPOD! IPAD, laptops, smartphones and even a hook up for your IPOD to connect with the led alarm clock on the night stand. Small sofa off to the side . Staff was incredibly helpful and had that southern polite charm that just warms your heart. I just love the people that live here. The hotel has an indoor pool. Clean hallways and all other common areas. Hot breakfast served daily. Free daily paper. No tub for a bath but I didn't miss it a anyway, location is ideal. Right off of I95.

When we first rented a room here we wondered if we would walk out. The halls look dirty especially the rugs. Vending machines don't work properly but our room was small but really clean. The staff was very friendly. We sleep really well. Location of this hotel is great.

I have never stayed at this chain and am pleasantly surprised. If they are all this nice i will say good by Holiday Inn Express. Give it a shot if you are looking for a nice and inexpensive place to stay for an evening.
