Overpriced For The Small Rooms

The staff were friendly and helpful but the rooms were very small. The walls , floor, ceiling are paper thin so the noise from the other rooms come through. We did not get a goodnight sleep the few days we stayed at the holiday Inn we actually decided to move down the street and check in at the courtyard marriot.......huge improvement. I will not recommend the Holiday Inn to anyone.

great till stuff went missing

I had a great stay at the holiday Inn express and suites. It was great except for a few things. The pool was over chlorinated. The day before I left when my hotel room got cleaned, one of my $40 bras went missing. we went and talked to the clerk at the front desk and left phone number with him. I have since emailed the hotel twice and have gotten no reply. I am not very happy about this lack of customer service.

Good stay

The room was clean & the staff throughout the facility were very friendly & helpful. The breakfast was very good & the young man who was in attendance was very friendly & willing to help with any problems that would possibly occur. We enjoyed our one night stay. Convenient to shopping & restaurants & the expressway.

Navy Graduation

We went to our daughter in-laws boot camp Navy graduation. The hotel was less than 5 miles from the base and situated on a very quiet lot. The facility was clean and the staff was more than accommodating. They would go out of their way to answer questions and look information up on the internet for us. We always recommend the Holiday Inn Express and have yet to be disappointed.

Lumpy beds

The room furniture is in dire need of replacement, especially the matrasses. The overall value just is not as good a deal as other nearby hotels.

2nd stay

Second stay in 4 months and you couldn't ask for a better place for the price. Don't know if we will ever get up that way again but would stay again if I did.
