I don't like booking hotels without having seen them first. Picked this one because they had shuttle service to family day and graduation. I was very happy with this location. Rooms were clean, comfortable beds, great staff! Small pool but everyone enjoyed themselves. RUbios right next door was a bonus! Would stay again for sure!

It was such a relief to find a decent, clean hotel after the horrible place we were the night before. It was comfortable, clean, well serviced. It had a security entrance which I appreciated. The place looked new. The internet worked really well as did the tv, frig, microwave, shower. It had all kinds of places to plug in electronics....

Hotel was ok, barely meets HIE standards but was fine. Rooms very small and not a lot of storage. Pool was also small but was awesome for our six year old to play in since it is only 4 feet deep on the deep side. Hotel staff were awesome and once I figured out how to get in and out...

Was kind of disappointed with my room. It looked as if they started to remodel it and were 80% done but did not finish it. The bathroom was tiny. The door at bottom had water damage. New floor and carpet through out the rest. Complementary Breakfast: precooked omelettes, sausage patties, biscuits and gravy, a machine for pancakes, boiled eggs, yogurt,...

After being shocked at the rate, I was even more concerned nearing the hotel. It appeared kind of old and on the edge of an iffy area. But from check in to check out the hotel facility and personnel were so pleasant. Tiny parking areas. If you're in something larger than an SUV or standard pickup beware. You may need...

Erika was great getting us signed in! Enjoyed the people and stay! We always stay at holiday inn express on all our trips because we have a great experience with the staff and cleanliness. Easy to get to, great breakfast as always. We will be back.

This is a recently remodeled hotel. The hotel was comfortable and the breakfast was great with a lot of different options. With the breakfast and parking included, the rate was great. Only negative I have to share is that the hotel is a little difficult to get in and out of. Only right turn out of the hotel and have...
