I haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn for years, but just because I travel a lot and been able to get Marriott, Hilton and Hyatt hotels for great prices where ever I've gone across the globe. So when a friend and I were planning to do a series of meetings across seven states in the midwest I let his secretary... More

The staff was incredible! Loved staying here. I spoke with a couple the front desk staff. They were extremely nice, especially the redhead lady on Thanksgiving evening and the one the Friday night! I will be staying here on any and all future visits. We felt so comfortable during our whole stay!

I was in town this past weekend for a wedding. The hotel was absolutely amazing and we had a great time staying here. We had a 2 bedroom suite which was very nice to be able to have privacy while staying with my family. I cannot say enough great things. The pancakes are the best at breakfast.

We stay here approximately twice per year, and I have consistently found the staff here to be helpful and accommodating. I have stayed on several occasions with small children by myself, and they have gone above and beyond to make our stay easier. Bonus that it's also near Walmart in case you forgot anything.

Overall your standard Holiday Inn express, with clean rooms, good breakfast, etc. The piece that I thought set this apart a little from the rest was the friendliness of the staff. Little notes written on the bananas and a nice thank you on my bill tells that the staff truly cares!

Much larger hotel than your typical holiday inn express and my room was also exceptionally large. Check in was very simple and they had a manager reception going on with free beer. It's in a fairly nice area in town with several things around it for both dinner and shopping.

This was a nice quiet, clean, and comfortable Hotel. It was a nice place to park the motorcycle after a long day on the road. Eunice and Kelly were very helpful as I was having problems with my app and wanted to use points. They were just very nice. Restaurant/Bar next door was nice with a great waiter.
