Weekend stay for friend's wedding

I stayed at this hotel for a friend's wedding for the weekend. The bed was extremely comfortable and I also enjoyed the delicious breakfast (had eggs that tasted very fresh along with hot sausage and pancakes). I did find a couple bugs in the room (1 beetle in the bathroom and 1 ant in the bedroom area), which is understandable sometimes/ for the summertime, however if I had seen more than 2, I might have complained. The staff was okay, but not super friendly. I was there for a friend's wedding and the staff called me at 6:30am to let me know they had a basket for me (left by the wedding party) at the front desk when I checked out.... They should've at least waited another hour before calling to wake me up and since I had to check out anyway, they could've just given me the basket then. Also check out time was written as 11am and when I checked out at 10:15, the woman behind the desk said "we were waiting on you," which made me feel like I was late for check out even though I was not. Overall, I would recommend to stay if you need a place in Forest City, but not a great or out of the ordinary experience.

The hotel was very nice & quite. The bed was very firm. We left early because the bed was so hard.

Very nice hotel in a small town.

the Holiday Inn Express in Forest City, NC is a very nice hotel in a small town. It is close to the Highway, but far enough away to be very quiet. They have a very nice patio area outside and the rooms are spacious and clean.

Wonderful Experience

This was my first experience with Holiday Inn Express, and it was a great one. The hotel is fairly new and very well kept up. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Do not try to use any online maps in that area, they will lead you to the wrong place. The best restaurants were a bit of a drive, but worth it. The city was nice, but mostly it was just convenient to the mountains and Charlotte. The closet door in our room did not close completely, but that was the only downside.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

The Water Oak restaurant may be one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Just a hint, stay on 74 after turning left out of the hotel. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was unbelieveable, and for a change, it was a nice quiet place to have a good, inexpensive, romantic dinner.

centrally located for area,very family friendly

Staying in a safe inviroment and being clean is top of my list and this hotel was both. Being new and the upkeep in keeping the place that way showed with good favor. The room had plenty of space to move around and had an appeal as you were at home. The staff was there to make sure our stay over was complete and was very helpfull in doing so.I would highly recomend this hotel to business travelers or vacationers alike.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

1. Several eating establishments in view of hotel or a couple of blocks either way. Breakfast,lunch, or dinner. 2. Shopping is one block away with a very popular outlet store ( Super Wal-mart ) 3. Major mountain views are lease than an 45 minutes to an hour drive.
