Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by .Andrew. Great experience despite construction
The stay here was relaxing. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. The hotel is under construction but that did not adversely affect our stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Budman21 Construction wasn't a real issue
I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. As long as your not spending all of the 'work day' in your room, the construction won't be a problem. The breakfast area was kept well stocked and everything was clean as it should be. Would have been nice to have the pool up and running but they didn't advertise the pool anyway so I wasn't expecting it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looking forward! Comfortable bed and great service.
When we arrived the rep greeted us very nicely.
We had to show our college ID and to get the great discount, the service was prompt and professional.
For breakfast the ladies was attentive to our needs, the coffee was not the best but we enjoyed it. We like the breakfast and the service very much.

Stayed here one night last week, very clean rooms and the girl at the front desk was very nice and helpful when I checked out, she even printed directions for me to my next destination. I would defiantly stay here again!

We hated trudging up the stairs. We hated the all day construction noise starting at 8am. We worried that anyone could enter the building through the unlocked construction door.

The Holiday Inn was under construction and we weren't told when we booked 6 rooms. Elevators didn't work, fitness room closed, and construction smells in the building. The staff was very nice. The door handle to our room was filthy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by alcismen53 Problematic Visit
This is a nice low-end hotel. I have stayed there on several occasions and been happy. Unfortunately, on this stay there were numerous problems: Construction in progress. Loud. Guests clustered. Loud guests were not controlled (kids bouncing on beds and running up and down hallways). Not able to check out - after 30 minutes with hotel personnel, had to leave in frustration. No compensation offered for all the problems encountered. Very hard to get any rest/sleep in hotel. In general, hotel personnel were quite friendly and professional.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jnichols13 Worst Holiday Inn Express We Have Ever Stayed In
Your desk clerks were not welcoming and seemed to be uninterested in guests, both at check in and other times. The hall way on the first floor is dark and poorly lit. I suggest that you change the rugs to brighten up this dark hallway. It surprised me that the elevator was blocked off by a sofa. In addition the renovation materials in the front of the hotel didn't exactly add to the charm of our experience. This is the worst Holiday Inn Express that we have ever stayed in and will not stay there again. The one bright note was that the woman who worked in the breakfast room was warm and engaging. She made us feel welcome and we enjoyed our breakfast. You desk clerks could take lessons from her!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SESManager Hotel Under Renovation Not a Good Value
The cost of the stay was not in line with the current hotel conditions. While under renovation the chain should subsidize the operator by offering lower rates to make up for the inconveniences such as no elevator service; stariways that were not very clean or inviting; and construction noise starting at 8AM after a late arrival,
With so many other alternatives in the immediate area this hotel is not worth the price paid while it is being renovated.

I was so impressed with this hotel!
Even though they were under renovation, the service and accommodations were wonderful.
The bed was very comfortable. Room spotless.
Fridge and microwave. Quiet. Great breakfast area and food. Staff very nice and helpful.
I would definitely stay here again. I hope all Holiday Inn Express are this good!

You had a young girl working the 2nd shift and was moving to days, she is the best clerk i have ever had. She needs to be the employee of the month.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TKO Girl COMFORTABLE BED, NOT EVERYTHING IS WORKING.
Was easy to book. For the price, not the best deal around! Breakfast wasn't to great, but the area was very clean and the stuff was friendly. Shower wasn't working, check yours before you take the room. Was difficult to figure out hot to dial a service desk! Fitness center and the pool was under construction I guess. Wanted a double bed, but got a king bed instead, but the manager accommodated me with an extra folding bed. Overall it is ok for 70% of the price. Many other choices around.

WE travel from Florida to Maine and back each year. We stay in the same Holiday Inn Expresses each year. This year the Vernon Hotel was under construction, resulting in an inability to use the fitness room. My wife is rehabilitating from a knee replacement and the use of a stationary bike is beneficial. Aside from that we had no problems with the construction. Staff placed us on the first floor since the elevator was out of service.
I believe I paid the same as in the past with no discount for the construction. The breakfast area construction had been completed and the space was increased and the food was excellent.

All went well; the facility and staff met or exceeded all expectations for this faciliuty, which I have used before. The only slight on the location was that there was no indication that the facilities were undergoing renovation when I booked the room. Also, no one attempted to ascertain my Priotiy Club membership.

Do not stay while under renovation if you cannot manuver stairs or you have expectations of HIE while being a priority member - because it did not work at this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Billybob1 Softest Towels in new England
It's always pleasure to stay here when I am working in the Hartford area. Even through their ongoing renovations they do not miss a thing to make sure that my stay is above the normal expectancy from a holiday Inn Express. Pillows always smell clean and fresh and the towels are by far the softest I have found any where.
Did I mention the great staff? Always concerned that I have everything I need to enjoy my stay. This is not your usual Express, this one is a cut above the rest.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lulu22Twentytwo Just a Couple of Kinks
Overall my experience was a good one. There were just a couple of snafus: the plastic key card wasn't programmed properly and wouldn't open the door to my room. I had to leave all my belongings out in the hallway and go back to the front desk to have it reprogrammed. The television had no sound, and the front desk clerk had to leave his station to come up to my room to discover that cable box's audio wire had somehow become unplugged. There was only one front desk person who apparently was responsible for all the guests, and had to leave the front desk empty if solving a problem in one of the guest rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dunksdecafgirl spacious suite
I stayed at the Vernon Holiday Inn express in room 204 on 11/16/14. This was the suite. Although they are closing for renovations I've been told, the suite was spacious and suited our needs perfectly. The room had dated furniture and bedding but was clean. The Bathroom was updated and there was a "kitchenette" area which included pots/pans and a stove top. The one thing I'd love to see is a bigger refrigerator when they do renovate. Staff is friendly and no complaints on the continental breakfast in the lobby. For an "older" Holiday Inn, still plenty of service and perks. I would recommend this hotel if you're staying in the area.
Also, Angelina's the Italian restaurant next door has 1/2 price appetizers in the bar area on saturday afternoons.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mathgeek00 Accomodating and EXCELLENT breakfast!
After reading a bunch of reviews I was a little concerned about reserving a room here because many folks were upset by the existence of smoking rooms in the hotel (which I've seen management say will be going away in Winter 2013-2014#. But I couldn't really beat the price, so I booked anyway and just requested a room as far away from any smoking room as possible #my 14 month old son was going to be with me).
I was so happy with the results. It's true that you could smell smoke in the lobby entrance of the hotel, but we couldn't smell anything down the hall to our room. The room was clean and smell-free and really great.
And breakfast... best choices at a continental I've ever had. We all had our fill and left very satisfied!

I've stayed at this locations a few times and they stays were fine. However this time there were bad odors. My room smelled of BO and the hallway smelled of stail smoke. This is not what I would recommend or expect from a holiday inn express.
