Staff needs training

Halls dirty, only decaf in room, breakfast poorly organized, hot food cold, sliced fruit still frozen, computer from the dark ages, staff doesn't always answer phone, this hotel needs a lot of help. But, the rooms were clean and the beds comfortable.

Quick Visit Home

Was looking for inexpensive, convenient to my destination and this fit the bill. Nice to have complimentary coffee/breakfast. Room a bit small but clean and comfortable enough. Would use this hotel again.

Loud and Dirty

I was there for my wedding. My wedding night was horrible. We were kept up all night from someone stomping and running on the floor above us. When we called the front desk to complain they did not do anything to fix the issue. So we were up all night and not for a good reason. Also, the bathroom had a black mold like stuff all over the ceiling and upper walls and the room and bathroom were really dark. The staff was over all very nice though.

That's Good Stuff!

My husband and I only stayed overnight at this hotel but it was overall a great experience. Check in was fast and easy and so was check out. I also loved the fact they had hot tea and coffee at the door and in your room (it was fairly cold when we went). The beds are so comfy, we took a nap around 6 pm and ended up sleeping until 10pm. The best nap ever! It is walking distance from the mall and plenty of restaurants in case you don't drive. The only bad thing that happened to us there was when we were packing our stuff up to leave we found dirty underwear under the bed. EWWWW

clean room

Hotel was a place to stay. Room clean and nice, but hallways in need of major upgrade. Okay place with no amenities, but a great staff. Value for the price is very low. Not what you expect from a Holiday Inn Express franchise.

Go across the Street

Location is great, but the rooms are very small. There's not even an elevator - it felt like HI bought a small, cheap hotel and tried to fix it up. There's a Hampton Inn and a Hilton Garden Inn a few blocks away - go there unless you really need to save a few bucks.

watch for:

The bedding and bathroom were clean,the rug was dirty and needed cleaning. Also there are no elevators. I wish I had know that at the time of booking as we were given a 2nd floor room and my husband recently had surgery.

quick wedding trip

Holiday Inn Express was easy access and easy check in. Really had no complaints, as it fit the bill for what i needed, but was nothing special either.
