Everything was as good as it gets for this general level of a hotel. I was on a budget on a 3.000 mile holiday driving trip. The staff was super and the breakfast was good, not like the grouch that posted a dim view of it.

Good local steakhouse and bar that the staff recommended was very good.
I found this room to offer more amenities than the Hampton Inn for about half the cost. The rooms need to be updated a bit, but they are comfortable and clean. The staff was pleasant. The hotel was quiet although I know they had many reservations.
I would stay there again.
I was very happy with the room and service and i am ery sure that on my next visits to Marion i will always stay at the Holiday Express. The guy who checked me in was very helpful and made sure i had everything i needed. The room was very comfy
and it felt like home.
