This is an older hotel yet they told me it will get a remodel starting later this year. (That means it will be under Construction!) We stayed here before and it was an OK hotel. This time, it was less than that. The hallways were terribly musty. The bed was so squishy, I had to sleep on the edge of the bed. We requested a room with firmer beds and they said this was one of them. I would hate to see how much more squishy their non-firm beds are! They use an A/C sensor so the A/C turns off if there is no movement in the room - meaning we woke at 3am sweating hot! The desk/table area is too high for the chair supplied which means you can't easily type on your laptap sitting on that chair! The tub didn't drain however, the shower had excellent water temperature and pressure! There was no bathroom fan so the bathroom got steamy very quickly. The room had a medium size frig in the room. And the room was very clean even though it was an older hotel! This hotel has gone downhill a bit since my previous stay this past summer. I'm glad when it gets a much needed full remodeled.

I stayed here for a conference. The hotel is nice but has an older / worn feel to it. Who ever built or remodeled the bathroom did a poor job. It was done very sloppy (see photos) The beds were a bit on the soft side. Breakfast was good, the breakfast attendant was very nice! Near the TV was a bright yellow piece of paper titled "Room Maintainance" (yes, they misspelled maintenance) - however, this told me they are very concerned with keeping their rooms in the best shape & if a guest notices a problem, they appreciate knowing about it so they can fix it before the next guest! We would stay here again!

Let's first say that there is no longer a hot tub - filled with concrete. When we are traveling with kids, it is a necessity. My wife asked if there was a pool and the lady could have filled us in at that point. The pool was so cold we could only swim for a few minutes. Also, the breakfast was...well we wouldn't know because they didn't bring out any more food. We had a family of four along with a couple more people show up to no food and they didn't even try to replenish. They eventually brought out 4 sausage patties. If you have young kids, you will understand the seriousness of this. The room was average and the shower was below average. We were very disappointed.

It was a planned stay on our trip since we like that most Holiday Inn's. Check in very friendly and went back to front desk to ask about food delivery. Very,very helpful with information on local restaurants which really helped us get us a good local Place! Good to have staff that really cares when you ask questions need information!

I found myself in need of a place to stay this past week and stopped at the Holiday Inn Express in El Dorado, Ks. I stayed there the first several weeks that this hotel opened, in fact I made the first reservations at this hotel before they opened. This hotel remains clean, well kept, and as friendly as they were then. The staff is always willing to help with whatever they can.

For the price, it was fine, but it was not the nicest Holiday Inn Express I've stayed at. The lobby was super cute, but the rooms and beds were not fabulous. Plenty of room for two couples in the double room. The TV was not on the correct input and the front desk clerk had to come and fix it and it was not an easy process. The room had a Keurig. The breakfast had lots of warm and hot options, but none of us cares for any of the warm options. The coffee was good, though. The room definitely needed work done on it, grout and tiles in the bathroom needed repair.

We stayed here with our family because they had a pool and gave a veteran discount. I want to first give kudos to the lady working on breakfast because we got there at 9:30 with two hungry kids. She made us a few things and allowed us to eat. The room was really big and clean. The beds were perfect. The only complaint I have is with the pool. It was ice cold. I froze my tail off because my daughters love to swim.

Our family stayed here when traveling through. We had two rooms and both were very clean and updated. The pool was clean and easily accessible. The front desk was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was hot and delicious. All the service was good. Will stay again if we come through here again. Wifi was included with the room and easily connected, a definite plus!

It's been several years since I've stayed at this HIE. I'd been staying over in Wichita a lot on my trips to Music programs at Circle High School in Towanda. I decided to stay closer this last trip and I must say, I just felt so at home there. The bed was very comfy and the breakfast was great. Their omelets for breakfast were the best I've ever had at a fast serve hotel breakfast. They had cheese, veggies, and some ham in them. Very tasty. The staff was very friendly and I even had a house keeper offer to help me with my luggage when I was leaving. Guess she felt sorry for this old Even with most of the guests being male, I still felt comfortable and safe being a female staying by my self on this trip. I will def book here again.

Kids had a great time and pool area was perfect. Staff was very friendly. We enjoyed being in the town we lived in but having a weekend get away feel. Beds were extremely comfortable and room was very clean.
