We stay at this facility once a year, usually in June, but sometimes in July because the Holiday Inn Express in Middlesboro is so busy that it is sometimes difficult to book. Contrary to two previous reviews, we found the same comfortable, clean and friendly facility in '07 that we have been experiencing since 2000. The staff is most friendly and accommodating (especially the maintenance man who immediately replaced the hair dryer in our room which had a faulty plug), the rooms and beds are comfortable, and our room was exceptionally clean. We looked for things to complain about, expecially after reading some recent reviews. Sorry, but we didn't find anything to complain about. No, this isn't the Ritz. Yes, the facility is heavily used. That is because it is the ONLY decent place to stay in a twenty-five mile radius. The breakfast area is small and can easily be made messy by an unattended child, but this is not the fault of the staff. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, starting with Chinese, Mexican, Southern regional, buffet-type all-you-can-eat facilities and ending with every fast food chain you can think of. The pool looked inviting, but no one was using it. Inside and outside, this Holiday Inn Express is well maintained. Yes, the motel backs up to an imposing hill, but this is in the mountains after all. The rates are reasonable, a newspaper is free. There is high speed internet (though we did not use it). Lastly , if you are in the area to sight see (and there is plenty of that, beginning with the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park), this is THE place to stay. We will go back next year and we will be staying at the Express. No worries, no problems.
