King bed is so so comfortable with the king size pillows. Water pressure is awesome. Helen at the front desk is fabulous. WiFi eh? Depends on where you are in hotel. I'm told they are working to improve this. Jon, Lori, Wendy and Taylor always take care of you as best they can!

It was a great stay at the hotel. The people were very friendly at check in and the rooms were very clean. The pool was nice. Since it was valentines weekend never made it to breakfast but it smelled good each morning. The king jacuzzi sweet was well worth the 10 extra dollars a night. You didn't hear much from the other rooms besides the doors slam from other rooms but what hotel can't you hear that in.

I came to the Holiday Inn Express for my son's first ever College Track Meet at Tiffin University. This is my 5th trip to this hotel and it never fails to impress. This trip, I came with a terrible cold. I was in the lobby after going to the local drug store to get meds for my cold and Brenda approached me asking if I was in a hurry....? She continued to suggest a bag with handles so I could take stuff up to my room, or a service tray to help me out. I told her I wasn't in a hurry, but I needed to get back to my room to take these cold meds I just bought. She then asked if I was an IHG member. I told her i was. Then she asked if I'd tried tea with lemon yet. I hadn't, so she gave me a few packets of Earl Grey Tea and a few lemon packets to take to my room. I was there for 2 nights, and by the 2nd night, I was feeling better. Thank you Brenda for the kind, personal and caring service!!

Comfortable room with good selection of pillows. Bathroom size isn't usually a high priority for me, but It was nice to have a large, spacious bathroom, . The location is convenient to shopping and other dining options for supper, such as Bob Evans. Nice breakfast area with a friendly attendant and variety of options.

We stayed for a wedding. The Tiffin Carnival cross country race was the same weekend so the hotel prices were high. Accommodations were average. The breakfast was extraordinary. As someone who has a challenging diet, there were lots of options for breakfast. Won me over! The pool was kind of cold and looked like it needed some minor repair. They had a pool but no hot tub. Overall, a good experience.

At the time of our visit, the hotel was being re-roofed. Not a problem, as we were only spending the night. From the moment we walked into the lobby, there was an unpleasant odor. We checked in and went to inspect the room. The hall floors were covered with dog hair, and the room had been smoked in, we had requested a non-smoking room. We decided not to stay there, as the odor and dog hair was unacceptable. The receptionist refused to cancel our room and refund our money, as it was five minutes after six pm. (company policy). We left and drove to Columbus to a very nice Holiday Inn Express near Easton shopping center. As with many small town hotels and motels, I think we wandered into one of those that have escaped the corporate monitoring that helps maintain the standards that we have come to expect. I would not recommend the Tiffin Holiday Inn Express to anyone, except those pet owners that like to sleep with their pets.

The Holiday Inn Express in Tiffin is an adequate place to stay. What stands out is the breakfast area, and one of their employees. Brenda was friendly and extremely helpful during my stay. She assisted me with my bag when it was delivered to the hotel, and always willing to pack a "to go" bag. She is a gem of an employee!!

Stayed for long weekend and slept well in comfy king bed. Breakfast was fresh & plentiful and well tended to by attendant. We had a room at the end of a hallway and stairway door slammed loudly and often. Cigarette receptacles at the side entrance were stinky; every time we entered the side door we were overpowered by horrible stale ashtray smells. Room was clean and comfortable with a small loveseat. Shop around for rate - the price varies by sites. Would recommend based on our positive experience.

Holiday Inn Express is my go-to hotels while traveling, but this one has been the only one worthy of a not so good review. While the room was huge and clean, it still had an odor of cigarette smoke, which played hell with my sinuses. The floor would have been softer than the bed, and the breakfast was not worth eating. If you do stay here, go eat at the Bob Evans right up the road for breakfast.

The room was clean, but the bed was very hard and very uncomfortable. The room had a stale odor of smoke...may have been a "smoking room" prior?? My husband and I both woke up with eyes burning and sinus problems. Once we left the hotel, we both felt better. The breakfast was typical, but no gravy for the biscuits-which were hard as rocks. Throughout our vacation, we stayed at 5 holiday inn hotels-all met our expectations except this one.
