2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were in town visiting family last week and stayed for 5 nights. The room was clean, the staff were all friendly, and breakfast was wonderful!! The hot tub was great, the pool was a little on the cold side but still enjoyable. The location is great, close to lots of food and shopping.

This was a quick get away for my husband and I. We had a dinner to attend and afterward was looking forward to enjoying the Jacuzzi room we paid for. When we arrived there was a very large cock roach, had to move to another room in which we found (after our dinner out) 3 more small ones in the tub and on the coffee area. Not very pleased at all. Couldn't sleep, worried they would crawl on us during the night! At this point we left very early and did not complain because we knew we would not be back so what good would a free room do us? Due to the bug issue we will not be back......

I'm relocating for work and found this hotel to be the best in the area. I spoke to the GM on the phone and Marjorie is delightful. The hotel accommodates your every need. Hot tub is great after a long day at work. Rooms are cleaned spotless daily and staff is very friendly.

... at a decent price. The room was up to date and in good shape, and the breakfast room was competently handled. We are not giving this place a fifth star because housekeeping was knocking on our door BEFORE we had checked out. And, it was still an hour and a half until checkout time.

Traveling with tractor-trailer for Black History month always a challenge to try to find a place to stay that has a parking lot large enough.The staff was great on the phone and even better in person.cannot say enough about this hotel

I was at this hotel for almost 3 weeks. The staff was accommodating and friendly. They cleaned my room every day. Coffee anytime day or night and Marie fed me in the morning!!! Thanks for giving me a pleasant stay!!!

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.,
