My family and I stayed last night to be close to a wedding in Berea. Check in went smoothly, we were treated well by each staff member, the room was immaculate, the pool was clean, the grounds were clean, and breakfast far exceeded our expectations. Do not know the name of the staff who worked the desk morning of the... More

Thank you so much for your feedback!! We work hard to keep the hotel immaculate and it's great to hear when it's appreciated! I believe the lady working at the desk that morning was Mikola - I'll let her know of the compliment! She's great! :) More

Stayed here over a year ago when it was a different chain, but since Holiday Inn took it over, it is better than ever. Their web site says hotel was fully re-modeled, and they are not kidding. Every room, lobby, breakfast area, elevator, and staircase has been totally re-done. The entire hotel is beautiful and well maintained. The entire staff;... More

Thank you SO MUCH for the great feedback!! You pretty much covered everything! It's such an encouragement to us to know that the months of renovations (and jackhammers) were well worth it!

We stopped here for a night. Staff was great very friendly. Room was nice and big. Pool water was a little chilly, the pool and pool room were very clean. Breakfast is a typical holiday inn breakfast. Overall happy with our stay and would stay here again if in the area.

THANK YOU for taking time to respond! I do love hearing good things! Just to reassure you, we'd recently refilled the pool so it's probably just needed some time warming back up. It's usually kept at 82ish degrees. Should be a nice comfy temperature the next time you visit! More

I love a fresh top to bottom renovation, and I think I stayed within the first month of opening, so there was still some construction/renovation going on, although it never disturbed me. I booked a suite, and was looking forward to a proper suite with a separate bedroom, but they don't have any of those here. So we just had... More

After experiencing the hell that was the red roof inn in Berea, this Holiday Inn Express was like heaven. Clean, welcoming, super friendly staff, and professional. Did I mention clean!

Haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn Express before! It was perfect for our one night stay. Loved that it was pet friendly...didn't mind paying the $25.00 for our dog. Staff was very friendly. Nice breakfast selection. Will stay there again.
