Had good time. I did however wish the gym had more equipment. The good was good in the morning, but it seemed to run out quickly. The doors at one point were locked in the middle of the night, but the staff let us in ASAP. Overall we had a positive experience.

Clean and convenient

This hotel is conveniently located. I found the room clean and well appointed. The free breakfast offered hot food as well as the continental offerings. My room was very silent. All in all, it was a good night's stay.

Pretty good no complaints

Just in and out... didn't stick around to long. I came in at 9pm and I was out by 7:30am. Hotel is new so no other issues with cleanliness.

My experience was very good. My only critic is that the towels were very ruff. Very nice and clean place.

Great Stay

The room was nice, the staff helpful at check-in, beds comfy. My teens loved staying there. Mostly new. Breakfast was very nice for a continental style freebie type meal. The coffee was very good and the juice actually tasted like juice. I would stay at this hotel again in a heartbeat.

Good place, like others I've been to

The hotel was nice. It had a pool, hot tub and a decent workout room. Breakfast was well done with an excellent worker that really wanted to please. A good three star hotel

I always like to stay at Holiday Inn Express hotels. They are updated or in many cases newly opened. I like the two choices you have of pillows in every room. The breakfast is quite substantial. All in all a very good spot for a business traveler which is why I am there most times. I have also selected the HIE for pleasure trips. I have never been disappointed.
