The room was nice and updated but the bathroom was poorly lit, needs more lighting for anyone putting on make up. Bed was comfy, it was easy to find, and the check in was quick. But I'm a priority club member and not even a bottle of water.

Handicap room, third floor. Roomy, comfortable, and clean. A/c was very good...too good in fact. We were very cold, and had to request that the A/C be turned off, which it was. the access code for the wireless wifi did not work, and I had to take my mobile device to the front desk (she did offer to come to...

Exceptionally friendly staff and very reasonable rates. Breakfast was hot and fresh with good selections. Very comfortable bed. Paint on walls and furniture could be updated. Humming from in room refrigerator annoying in middle of night. Would stay again after first checking the room.

I read all the average and poor reviews be for selecting this hotel in the hope that I would not encounter the problems mentioned. My experience was different. I could not find any of the negative things mentioned. Just the opposite, all good. The newly renovated lobby looked nice. Food was good, bed comfortable, no unusual smells, staff was friendly....

Tried many hotels midway between home and Hilton Head and this is the best of them all. It is immaculate, modern and updated, quiet and conveniently located just a minute off I44 East. Take the bypass northeast and miss the Knoxville traffic. There is a really nice restaurant with southern style home cooking across the street - walk over if...

Thanks to TripAdvisor reviews we booked a night here on our way towards DC. The hotel is very clean and looks freshly updated. The front desk staff was friendly and check in was swift. We had a double queen with a view of the back parking lot and woods past it. Refrigerator, Keurig machine in the room, amazing water pressure...

While the lobby appeared freshly renovated, the rooms certainly could use some attention. Hallways and rooms seemed musty, tears and fraying stained carpeting. Cracked tiles and bathrooms in need of general updating. Room was clean and breakfast acceptable, but compared to other Holiday Inn Express locations this one falls short. Pool area also extremely small. We will look for another...

This hotel is easy to reach from the interstate. It is well-appointed and clean. Our room was attractive, comfortable bed, pillows. Great shower, but shower curtain was hard to keep closed. Simple breakfast, but sufficient with varied offerings.
