The rooms were clean and comfortable and a pretty good breakfast. There were also two nice restaurants and great shopping all within walking distance. The service was good, but it would have been nice to have a complementary newspaper. The shuttle service to the wedding and reception was great.

4 stars is good. Thank you! Our location is good for restaurants and shopping that is for sure. Also glad you enjoyed the complimentary shuttle to the wedding reception you attended.

This location is quiet considering that it is next to a high school and the heavy traffic from Randall Ave. The front desk staff and hgousekeeping are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in the middle of every restaurant and shop imaginable. The breakfast is good.

Excellent location, staff was extremely helpful with a situation I had towards the end of my stay, and the parking was safe. This is a busy hotel, I was impressed with the cleanliness! Close to grocery stores, gas stations and a very wide variety of dining options. Will book here again!

Thank you for taking the time to review us and provide feedback. I am happy to hear you enjoyed the breakfast, pool area, shopping and local restaurants. I will take a look at the carpet in the room you were in right away. Our hotel has been pet-free since 2010, so I'm pretty confident it wasn't from that. We hope...

We stayed one night at this Holiday Inn Express, and enjoyed a comfortable stay. The king bed was just right and room was spacious & clean. The breakfast area has a contemporary look & feel and great tasting coffee and food. I recommend staying here if you are in the area.

Me and the hubby stayed here for one night. We are somewhat local, we were spending the day with friends and knew we couldn't drive 50 miles back to the city, and this hotel was closest to their home. The lobby and the great room were recently remolded and very pretty. The public restrooms on the first floor need a...

Thank you for the review. I do see you booked a standard room and on the day of check-in all we had available was a two queen room. Our property currently charges for a fridge/microwave cart to be placed in the room, but since you are an IHG Rewards Club member it was complimentary. In addition, we are nearly completed...

We only spent one night here but found it accessible, clean, quiet and well-located for our needs. Our experience with breakfast in most inexpensive hotels is to skip it but the bagels were good, the coffee tasty, the fruit fresh. The service was very good (Gloria the blonde was pleasant, professional and helpful) and the room overall was a great...
