In town for a graduation and chose the Holiday Inn Express for my brief visit. InitIally impressed becuSe upon check in to my room I found everything to be unplugged and out of place.

Very nice holiday inn express. The rooms and bathrooms are updated and wifi signal is strong. Plenty of restaurants and fast food within a mile or two. No noise issues for me. I spent the week on the second floor in a king suite and never heard another soul. Will stay here again if business brings me back to the... More

The manager was very nice in helping us move our prepaid reservation. So, that was great! As I pretty much always do, I called ahead of time and asked for a room on the top floor, away from the elevator and ice machine. When we got there, we received a room on the top floor, which was good. But, we... More

We are checking out a day early due to the extreme noise at this hotel. Good luck getting any sleep. The typical guest here seems to have no respect for anyone else. People yelling at each other up and down the hallways, slamming doors and unruly children abound. Won't stay again.

We stayed here for 2 nights and we were very impressed. It's extremely clean and comfortable. We had a king suite, which was very roomy and nicely appointed. The hotel staff were friendly and efficient. Our only disappointment was the breakfast. There was a wide variety to choose from ( pancakes, sausage, eggs, cereal, muffins, etc) but it was all...

Capable and friendly staff. Excellent bed. Nice linens. Quiet and spotlesslessly clean and everything in working order in the room. Those things are necessary starting points which this property achieves. Unexpected extras: comfortable and usable bathtub with real slope on which to lean, fluffy, lovely towels, lightly citrus scented soap, correctly softened water (none of the slipperiness that won't rinse...

This was a huge surprise of how nice staff and room was. It was extremely clean and very new looking. The front desk lady was extremely helpful and gave us a great suggestion for a place to eat. We loved it. The pool was clean and the water was warm. Definitely would recommend this place if ever in this area.
