Despite there being a large motorcycle gathering, the staff was very accommodating and even though I was late for breakfast, the lady said have whatever is left out. The place is very clean and well-kept. The only negative is there is very little place to walk. No sidewalks.

The Holiday Inn Express has a gem here. Should be the model for the company. That is not to say that I've had any negative experiences with the chain. Great stop for a weary traveler.

I certainly don't expect 5 star service at this price, but the overall experience was underwhelming, even considering the price.
