2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was conveniently located close to the Telico Gin. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast had a wide selection and was included in the price. Holiday Inn Express is our go-to hotel whenever we have a quick stay somewhere.

The main lobby of the hotel is still under remodel, but this did not negatively impact our stay in any way. The kids loved the saline pool. Breakfast was included and had the usual continental fare items. The rooms look like new and were very comfortable to stay in. Nice and quiet even though the hotel was crowded. If we return to Ennis, this would be my first choice.

Made our reservations 2 months in advanced and I wish I would have looked back at their website before we checked in. We came to Ennis to take our oldest to Diesel Nationals at Texas Motorcross and planned on letting our youngest swim, for him to enjoy something. We get here and pool area is closed due to remodel and all of first floor is under remodel. So our youngest didn't have anything to do and there's really nothing in this area unless you drive to Dallas 30 mins. Hotel was clean but you can tell it is time for remodel. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was ok, if breakfast is not a big deal to you and you just want something to put on your stomach. There is a " hall monitor " lady in the breakfast area and I say it this way because she was watching me fix a plate for my 2 children that were in our room still sleeping. It was like I was stealing. Which she failed to realize how many people are in our room and my room rate included breakfast for all 4 of us. She just was gawking at me like I was doing something wrong. Anyway, I just wished I read this hotel website before checking in. Lesson learned. There is a little restaurant right next door that is pretty good. Walking distance. Cotton Patch

The biggest problem with this hotel is the horrible Breakfast room chairs. I was amazed that each chair had the seat ripped in many places. In reading the reviews I see they have been like this a long time. If the Hotel does not have the funds to replace the chairs after all this time , where else might they be cutting corners ? Really bad chairs ....I was and continue to be astonished by the shape they were in. We are loyal HIE customers quite surprised. Breakfast not so great either ,,,, we had just spent two nights at the HIE in Marble Falls , Texas and the Breakfast was much better. On a more positive note: Room was large and seem to be clean tho a bit outdated . Staff friendly . Why can't you replace the chairs ? You know they are really bad . Sorry to slam you , I don't usually but really the cutting corners to such a degree really bothers me.,

This past Friday we took our clan to ennis like we do every year to go to the drive in theatre and we always stay here for the indoor pool bc we all LOVE swimming and it's too cold to swim outside right now. Unfortunately the pool was closed due to renovations so that was a number but the gentleman at the front desk, Nathan Burke, was extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to make our stay as excellent as possible (giving us extra ihg points to make up for the pool being out of commission and even gave us extra pillows and blankets since the pull out bed didn't have any). We will def be going back next year but we will make a point to make sure the pool is up and running beforehand but I understand that was in no way anyone's fault and look forward to swimming in the new pool area!

We stayed here while in town for a wedding and the staff was wonderful. Because we had booked under a wedding block, they had a small gift bag for us.. The front desk personal was very friendly and helpful.

The staff was very nice. The room was clean and comfortable. I was concerned about possible freeway noise, but I heard nothing. I was there for a meeting and had to pick up pigs in blankets in the morning, found it easily with directions from the staff. Breakfast was very good as always. I stayed in Ennis because I am soooo not a morning person. I didn't want to go back out to eat so I grabbed a dinner from the freezer in their little store am enjoyed my room in peace and quiet.

We stayed at this hotel during the NRHA fall race in Ennis due to a mixup at the hotel in Waxahachie. The room was clean, AC was cold. My hubby loved the high bathroom sink. Was surprised no safety bar inside the tub. Drains were running slow. Bedding was clean, but sheets were a little "thin" and worn. Internet access excellent. TV service met our needs. Staff was extremely friendly. Breakfast was excellent, well stocked with a wide variety of items. Biggest complaint would be the extremely worn chairs in the dining room! Decor was beautiful, but the worn chairs took away from that. They definitely need recovering--now!!

Well I was looking for a decent motel to spend the night in. first off the motel luggage cart had flat tires. Room was clean with king size bed ac was cold. Breakfast down stairs in the morning we found most of the chairs cloth seat torn and in need of repair. Breakfast was decent. AAA discount was only $6 next time I will keep traveling until I find a Hampton inn or a marriott

Nice, clean comfortable room. Spacious and modern decor. Only spent the night and had a mishap. The way it was handled by the GM, disappointing. She gave us a complimentary stay, unfortunately a called from her and a apology would have been sufficien. However, if a free night is given, I will not complain. We did not asked for anything, only to have it fixed, it wasnt. The rest of the staff are very friendly and courteous. Great place to stay, hopefully you won't run into any issues.
