Well, I got your attention. The hospital trip was to see a relative. It was just to visit and to be a support. All went well and they are recovering nicely. The folks in Van Buren did a great job helping us on short notice. Many thanks to the staff.

This property was pretty good. Staff was friendly. We loved the Van Buren area and would like to go back but we will be staying in a different hotel. The beds were good and everything was exceptionally clean. I guess the only problem I had was it was overpriced for a Holiday Inn.

We prefer to stay at Holiday Inn Express when we travel. This time was no different. I booked our room online with my Visa debit card like I always do. The morning we were to arrive they hit my account for the balance we owed. Also not unusual. We didn't arrive until later that night and my husband went inside...

Ms. Mary, I understand that it is frustrating to have the money held up from your account. As much as it seems that hotel was holding up money, I assure you that hotel do have very minimum control to this situation.

Great room, everything was stocked, breakfast was good, especially the cinnamon rolls. The staff was very helpful and they recommended a great place for us to go for dinner. The pool was nice, but there was no jacuzzi. The gym was nice to visit after sitting in the car all day. No complaints here. Everything was perfect!

this is our "go to" stop when we are traveling southbound from Wichita. Location is just far enough off the interstate to be quiet, there are restaurants and gas stations near by. The rooms are clean, comfortable and convenient. A great stay
