This Holiday Inn used to be a nice place to stay. It has become rundown and the redesign of some of the rooms is poor. The bathroom was so small I had to stand between the toilet and shower to shut the door. The bed was not comfy with springs poking through as the mattress was very old. The shower...

This hotel was clean, comfortable, and the people went out of their way to make sure we were doing well. Food was pretty good. Fitness Center very nice. Room was small, but that was ok since there were only two of us. We needed another chair in the room; and it was brought to us right away.

I was on the 3rd floor. The curtains did not close. The shears did but not the heavy curtains. They were put up that way. During the day the sun was shining in while trying to sleep, and at night the light from the Holiday Inn sign and a street light were shining in. Not great for sleeping. Also, the...

Stayed here over Christmas visiting friends in the area. Room was great! Flat screen TV, microwave, mini fridge, Keurig coffee machine. Our bathroom was small. I'd have to say that the continental breakfast was awesome! They had Quaker oatmeal cups that you could add walnuts to, cinnamon rolls, a pancake maker, juices, eggs (tasted like fake-boil a bag eggs), sausage,...

The last time we drove to St. Louis, we stayed just outside of Bloomington, and paid about $30 more. It was worth driving a little farther. This hotel was right off I55 in Lincoln, and we really had no complaints, though we were on the highway side, and my husband noticed the traffic noise, as he is very sensitive to...

Reviewed 18 October 2016

This hotel was certainly an adequate facility for an overnight stay - clean and comfortable. However, it was far below typical Holiday Inn Express caliber. Very small lobby space with no seating. Business center was a counter across from the check-in. Very small breakfast area.

If there was anything I would change it would be to offer a stiffer bed. The beds are a little soft for the back issues I have. Other than that the staff is always friendly and are very easy to talk to.

I originally reserved a room with two queen beds and if possible on first floor. When I checked in I was told that I had requested a king suite. When I got to the room it was one queen bed. Also it was on the third floor right across from the elevator and adjacent to the noisy ice machine. When...

Mr. Pahnke - I apologize for the experience during your recent stay. I can understand all of these frustrations adding up to a negative experience. I have personally reviewed your reservation and it's history. Most of this confusion stems from it being reserved at booking.com. This is a third-party site that we have little to no control over. Your reservation...
