We love staying at Holiday Inn and Suites when we travel. This particular hotel was pretty bare bones, nothing fancy at all. Could use some updating in fact. But what it lacked in sparkle, it made up for in the super friendly staff and ample breakfast.

Nice clean hotel appears to be pet friendly, simple hotel, housekeeping comes early and the breakfast crew shuts down early and could couldn't careless if you get anything from there. Service was acceptable, less than enthusiastic about the breakfast crew.

Stopped here on a three day trip as the first leg. The room was a 2 queen suite for my wife and two children. Not certain about the quality of the fold out bed but my son did not complain about it. The breakfast was as expected and was hot, not a mediocre temperature as I have experienced elsewhere. We...

We got a 2 queen suite for three adults for one evening during a family trip. The room was quite large, but unhappily, that's the only positive we experienced at this hotel. Typical Holiday Inn with terrible pillows: I would throw every one of them in the trash if they were in my home (I take my own pillow along...

our first stay was a random stop - second stay was intentional. Same young man on the desk - very accommodating. Just by coincidence we were given the same room - very convenient to breakfast room and front door. will be through here again in the Fall and will definitely stop here again.

Very clean & relatively new. We have stayed here several times & it has been consistently comfortable. It is close to the interstate & easy to get downtown. Several restaurants are within walking distance.

This is, by far, the best Holiday Inn Express I've ever stayed at. The staff went above and beyond to help my 85 and 95 year-old parents in addition to providing me and my sister a room when they were already booked and someone called in to cancel. It saved us in so many ways and even delivered the keys...

This place was a little pricey but the service was fantastic. Clean! This is the best continental breakfast I've seen in a long time. I would stay here again. If you live in the south and headed to Chicago this is the place to stay.
