Was a guest here in early December, 2012. No matter how you slice the cake, this hotel is not worth the asking price. The owners are merely gouging customers because so few hotels are available. The rooms are no more clean than other hotels where hotels are plentiful(Sleep Inn, Super 8, and Days Inn). I Stayed in a Days Inn at Deming, New Mexico and the price was a bit over $54.00. It was rather new, clean, great staff, better parking, etc, etc, etc. In short, a clever rip off, especially for a area that is impoverished.

Room Tip: No ideal room location. Hotel is located at the edge of a hill.

Thank you hughb, for taking the time to comment on your stay at our hotel. We rely on our guests' opinions to improve our hotel. We do understand that hotel room prices vary greatly around the country. But I assure you, while our prices seem high compared to some regions, we are actually a mid-priced hotel for this area. And the cost includes a great hot breakfast bar, free wi-fi, and free parking. We hope you will visit us again in the future and allow us to show you how great a stay at the Holiday Inn Express can be.

Thank you again,

Due to a problem at her home, I needed a place for my 74-year old legally blind mother to stay for one night. I was told that the owner of this hotel, who also owns the Sleep Inn in Middlesboro, would not rent a room to anyone who lives within a 65 mile radius. Until they found out we lived that close they were more than willing to rent us a room. We desperately needed this room. I look at this as a direct reflection on Holiday Inn and Sleep Inn. I use Sleep Inn almost exclusively when traveling. From now on I will find another chain to use or an independently owned hotel.

Thank you for your comment regarding our hotel. I am very sorry you experienced this problem. You are correct that the owners do not rent to anyone who lives locally, however in extenuating circumstances we do waive that policy. If you ever have a similar need, please ask to speak to the manager and explain the situation.

We were there to attend a funeral and everyone was very helpful and friendly! I have to say Kim and Wanda went above and beyond to be helpful!! It was greatly appreciated! And our room was clean and well stocked. They also had computer and printer we could use so we could check in online with the airlines and print our boarding pass, very nice!

Checked in with three other groups, ours was the smallest group but ended up costing more. Receipt was for $93.45 but when checked bank account later there was a charge of $214.95 that they claimed was for a damage deposit. When asked about it they said it would be taken off in the morning but when checked out was told it would be 7 to 10 days. None of the others had this charge and the only differance was ours was a handicap room that was not even asked for. If the handicaped room was the reason i consider that discrimination!
Also they have the loadest air-conditioners

We stayed at this hotel June 23 - 25, 2012. Overall i was very impressed with every aspect. The rooms were clean. The staff was super helpful and friendly. The included breakfast exceeded my expectations. I figured it would be donuts and bagels, but it was more. The first morning we were there they served pre-made cheese omelets and sausage. The next morning was scrambled eggs and bacon. It seems like they have various pastries, pancakes, toast, juice, coffee every morning. I was traveling with my handicapped grandmother. there was enough room for her in her wheelchair in the room. As someone else stated, this is a dry town, which limits the choices for a good place to eat. A Cracker Barrel is right down the road which just opened very recently. That apparently is the place to eat in the town. It was very busy. There are typically fast food places around. Walmart is right across the street from this hotel.

One thing to note about this hotel is that a fridge is not standard in the room. You can request one. I just asked the front desk and they brought one to my room.
