I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and was more impressed with such wonderful customer service. Donna, who works the front desk and the manager Corey went above and beyond to make my stay great. The room was very clean and nice. I loved that the bed had two types of pillows. If I am ever in the area again,...

We usually stay elsewhere when visiting our son at RIT. Due to the recent storms & power outages, most places were full this weekend. We decided to try here and were not disappointed. When booking, I did some looking & it was once a LaQuinta. No more, it was recently refurbished & it is a bright new Holiday Inn Express....

On business, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Rochester University (Visions-Hotels property) as I conducted a ServSafe training session at this property the following day. Directly off the 390 East on East Henrietta Road, this four-story structure had a good sized parking lot, and large covered entry way and welcoming foyer. Motion-operated doors take you through a very open...

Our room was clean. A bit small though, but since we were only there for one night that didn't matter. Large fridge in the room along with a microwave and dvd player. Rating a 4 instead of 5 due to a problem with my key on arrival which the front desk moved my room but went on to imply that...

The property is very nice and management is extremely courteous. The breakfast is nicely done. Unfortunately we were there when a youth hockey team was also there. Apparently youth team stay here fairly frequently. The noise throughout the night was fairly annoying.

We stayed here for three nights while visiting our daughter at school. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good and available very extended hours on the weekend. The fitness center was larger than most (it had room to lay down a mat) and had a nice selection of equipment.

Had to be in the city for 10 days for medical reasons. Location was right by the highway which was convenient for us and close to the airport.

I stayed here for a business trip and enjoyed my stay. The rooms were clean, the bathroom could have used an update, but it was quiet. The breakfast spread was exceptional for a continental. Not being a pork eater, they had turkey sausage! I enjoyed the small packets of hot sauce too. They had plenty of options and the coffee...

Convenient location to local stores (Costco/Walmart...) and restaurants. Lobby/Fitness Room and Pool areas are all very nice. Room was smaller than a normal size Holiday Inn Express, so with a family of four, had to do some tip-toe around kids/suitcases/beds. Nice to have a microwave and bar fridge in the room. Room HVAC was noisy as well, indicated to staff...
