The HIE hotel is located on the access road along the very busy hwy 57, the hotel is well marked as you can see the hotel from the road. It is a no frills modern hotel.
We arrived for a week stay
having flown in late and check-in was very quick and efficient. Parking is limited, however security will park your vehicle if there are no spots available.
Speaking of security I found that there are always two security on duty 24/7 as is front desk staff. I have to commend Oscar from security as he worked 16 strait hours since a co-worker did not show and also the lady from security, don't recall her name but I found her one day helping out in the breakfast area.
Both should be financially rewarded for going above and beyond.
Someone commented that the hallways were loud but they are carpeted.
Breakfast is typical Holiday Inn express with scrambled eggs, coffee, OJ, cereal, pastries etc. I would suggest adding Sausage, Pancakes and Bacon to the buffet line.
The Holiday Inn hotel is literally next door and I recommend the burger, very good as any you can have in the states, the restaurant is available if you don't care for the HIE breakfast.
The rooms we staying featured a small kitchen type area with small fridge, sink and microwave.
Bedding was very comfortable if a little small. A/C was excellent as was the hot water for shower and the water pressure.
Water for mouth rinsing (2 bottles) was provided free but it wasn't necessary.
WiFi Internet was very good for streaming.
Room Tip: Rooms in upper floors and near the back of the hotel to avoid traffic noise [Less]
