We enjoyed our brief visit very much. Our bed was very comfortable, pillows excellent, very quiet room. Even though we missed breakfast the food service personnel made sure we got basics, milk bananas.

Rooms are clean, very spacious and beds are comfortable. I like a lot of space in my room and this is perfect without having to get an upgrade. Breakfeast is ok and not far from downtown ..still need a car -about 15 min away.

Stayed 3/26 as a 5K reward point night. Had a bit of a problem with room assignment during check in but it was finally resolved to my satisfaction, Asked for restaurant recommendation and got a list of all of the eateries in town but without a preferred pick. Note that this was a Sunday and the better restaurants were all closed. Not much choice in this location and nothing near by. The mid-building elevator took us to a large, clean and mostly well maintained room. Everything worked as designed. Looked at the typical HIE breakfast but decided to eat elsewhere. It was a port in a storm, but would not likely go out of my way to stay there again.

The hotel staff is very friendly and eager to help. The hotel is located less than 10 miles from a Walmart and other stores and gas stations. The facility does need some improvements: The bathroom fixtures were very rusty and the commode with stink when flushed. Wifi was good at times and then bad at times. The buffet was very good. This is one of the few places that have turkey sausage. And you cannot get enough of the mango juice. Its not a bad hotel but management could pay attention to details to make it better.

We were warmly greeted even though we were using reward nights. The facility is well maintained and clean. The room was comfortable and clean with well regulated temperature. The coffee maker was a single serve Keurig. Since we had a supply of K-Cup pods to use where we were going, we were able to enjoy our favorite brews rather than that provided by the hotel. The breakfast was exactly what we have come to expect from HI Express with a good selections of hot and cold items plus fruit. It did not disappoint. Overall the facility and service met our expectations.

Stayed one night for business and it was a typical Holiday Inn Express. The thing that set it apart was the friendly service of the employees. We had a large group there and they went out of their way to accommodate us. Only drawback is that it was just basic. No frills but that's what you get w/a HIE.

Well, I've stayed here on and off for a long time. I love the staff, they are very friendly, and the pool is kept up well. Convenient to the bypass, good C-Stores close by, food not too far away. The owners have just let the property run down. It is bad need to an update and general interior maintenance. I suspect that an update will have to happen soon or they will need to rebrand. I guess this will be my last stay. Farewell old friend.

The Holiday Inn Express delivers what you'd expect--a clean, basic place to sleep. My room was fine and the TV and wifi worked well. That let me catch up on work, the news, and sleep. I don't need much more for a business trip. The hotel also offers breakfast each morning and has an indoor pool (which was not working during my stay).

Needs lots of repairs. Spent one night here then moved to different hotel. Pool out of order. Lots of loud guests. Bad location. Loon at country suites at other end of town. This side of town gone way bad down hill. Did not feel safe. Hole in celing

I was really impressed by how nice this hotel was. The breakfast was great and the staff was super friendly. We were there to see the concerts at the festival. We ran into Coolio at the hotel which really got us 30 something year old women excited. The lady at the front desk also gave us good advice about how to get around town while we were there.
