The young ladies at check in last night were very courteous and helpful. Our room was VERY clean, bed was comfy, the shower was nice. My husband loves the Holiday Inn cinnamon rolls so he was thrilled with the breakfast. A very nice hotel that we would definitely stay in again!!

I have always had great experiences with Holiday Inn Express hotels and this stay is no different. The room, and the hotel as a whole, was really clean and the breakfast was killer. Checking in was easy and quick. The elevator was super slow and was easier to just descend down the 4-story stairs and still beat the elevator ride to the bottom. The pool, however, was over chlorinated and burned one of the kids’ eyes. Still a great stay and will definitely be back to stay here when coming back to the area in the future.

My car battery died, and I needed a jump. I asked the manager for help, and he checked his personal vehicle for jump cables. Then he asked his maintenance man to check his car too, and he let me borrow cables to get my car going. This is huge to me. Most people behind the desk would probably say, "Sorry, can't help you." These guys went the extra mile to help me out. The staff also made excellent efforts to provide snacks for our 3-day conference. They even made us fresh cookies! The conference room was nice and clean...good for about 30 people. Tables and chairs were in good shape. The staff made every effort to ensure our comfort & success. Furthermore, the breakfast is very good. They provided omelets, sausage, bagels, warm cinnamon rolls, oatmeal, cereal, Chobani yogurt, fruit, juice, and coffee. I may have left something out. My room was immaculate. Bed was very comfy. All fixtures (tables, lights, curtains, bathroom stuff, etc.) were in excellent condition and clean. The gym has free weights, which I used. The pool looked clean. All in all, I felt I got excellent value during my stay.

This is not a bad option for a pet-friendly option near I-40. On the downside the staff was not the least bit friendly. Our room was poorly stocked (just half a roll of toilet paper) and when I asked to borrow a hair dryer they threatened to charge me $50 if I didn’t return it directly to the front desk. On the upside, the hotel is newish, the rooms very decent and the lawns are large. Not the type of treatment I’m used to as an IHG high-point club member, but this isn’t exactly an Intercon hotel, either.

The surrounding area around this hotel was very nice. Accommodations were very clean and comfortable. Came with a Penske moving truck and had to park across the way in the movie theater parking lot - not really a big deal. Wish they offered breakfast to go for a quick grab. Our primary reason for not rating this five stars was the high cost ($50) for our pet.
