Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gee3 My stay was good!
The room was nice, cold at times during the night, but clean and suitable for my purpose.
Breakfast options were good but an option of bacon instead of sausage would have been better. Also the breakfast dining area was quite small, but I stayed there during a busy w'end! Overall, I enjoyed my stay!

Stopped for one night only. Room was very well appointed and comfortable even choice of pillows. Requested in advance high floor quiet room which we got. Noticed ice machine, microwave and extra tea & coffee by the lifts in lobby although never used. Breakfast was buffet style and there was plenty of choice to set you on your way. Would definately recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wheeliegrandma Very comfortable stay over the weekend
I stayed in a wheelchair friendly room with an adjoining room for my carer. Both rooms were excellent with omfortable beds and mosti importantly plenty of space for me to move around independantly in my wheelchair. The bathroom had a walk/wheel in shower with grab rails in all the correct postitions. I am unable to stand and have to transfer for wah & toilet needs this I accomplished without any fuss.
Staff were very helpful and friendly
All in all a splendid weekend brea
Please use this hotel as facilities of this standard are few and far between!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mutha2boys2 Clean, comfortable room.
We stayed at Holiday Inn Express Oldbury from Friday until Monday our stay was very comfortable, the room was very clean and the bathroom was immaculately clean. The beds were very comfortable even though my two sons (who are not small)! had to share a sofa bed they both slept very well. The only draw back if any was that the room was a bit on the small side for a family of four, but as we felt very relaxed in it we still enjoyed our stay. Everything in the room worked well and it was noted that this hotel obviously pays a good attention to maintaining things as this is not the case in other hotels we have stayed in. Thank you we really enjoyed our weekend away and will stay with you again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HarryLondon Pleasant Stay
Overall I found this to be a comfortable and convenient hotel. I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and been generally pleased with the warmth and friendly nature of the staff.
Only complaint I had on my most recent stay was a "rotten eggs" smell from the cold water in the bathroom sink.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express outside of Dudley twice within 2 weeks. the first time room 114 excellant.quite ,comfortable all you could wish for..two weeks later ,again on a friday we were given room 20, i did ask if room 114 was availble but sadly not.. the room was fine but the location was not, it seemed to be next to a staff entrance / excit which i know has to be somewhere , but the door would BANG shut regardless of time of day or night..we did point this out to reception on checkong out but you know it will never be mentioned again except by the next occupant of room 20.All it needs is a sping damper on the door ..other than that small point a good Holiday Inn right next to junction 2 on the M5 .M.Watts

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Boysie58 Housekeeping Issues
I have stayed at this hotel before and everything was excellent.
On this one night stay the hotel was let down by a bed with springs prominent in places and a duvet that was past it's best.
There was also a hand towel that, although laundered, showed traces of where stains had been.
The problems were reported at check-out, I was thanked for reporting the problems which, I was assured, would be taken up with housekeeping.
All other aspects of my stay were fine.
One good and one bad experience; if the price is right I will give the hotel another chance when next in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnniesBoy Ideal Location & Value for Money
I have stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in Oldbury on a number of occasions as my company head office is located nearby and have found the facilities and service to be of a consistently high standard. The staff have always been helpful and knowlegable and the rooms clean and comfortable.
I also enjoyed an excellent breakfast.
If you do want a change of scenery for a while there is an adjacent pub which offers excellent food.
The location is ideal for access to motorways and is within easy reach of all parts of the West Midlands and Wales.
Good value for money in my opinion.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jaybee100 Comfy bed, good breakfast - Good value for money overall
Starting with positives - We had a one night stay only on excellent rate which included up to 7 nights parking, which we didn't make use of (other than the one night - we were situated on first floor of the hotel. Value for money was v good, room very adequate, and bed was comfy, - now the negatives - it was difficult to get a good nights sleep for a couple of reasons - doors banging all night, and staff taking breaks outside our room every couple of hours during the night - I guess it goes with the Friday night turf and maybe some party-goers and we had windows open because it was so hot - so I guess this won't have helped either - This would definitely have been a better experience with earplugs -which we didn't have - but will carry them next time),
Overall the hotel was really good value for money. ps - I did mention the noise on checking out the next morning, and received a verbal apology from the receptionist which was appreciated.

We have used HIE for several years now, and usually stay here around 5/6 times a year, including New Year's Eve. The standard of accommodation and the service offered by staff has never been anything less than good/excellent whenever we stay. Excellent value for money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Eckythump No problems about the stay
I stayed here ahead of speaking at a conference. I arrived in the late evening, and was greeted efficiently, if not in an incredibly customer-focused way.
The ambience was good, and parking was easy and secure. I sampled a beer in the bar, and was very pleasantly surprised by the prices.
My room was comfortable, if a little cold in what was very cold weather, clean, and in good order.
Breakfast was the usual Holiday Inn Express affair, and was plentiful and well-prepared.
Nothing special, but I would have no problems in staying here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wightie Excellent value and comfortable stay.
My friend and I had a bargain stay here, for a visit to the Gardeners World Live at the NEC.
Room was comfortable, the staff lovely and the breakfast an unexpected bonus, given the bargain price of the room. Although the hotel was full of wedding guests and cricket fans, there was plenty to eat and we sat comfortably in the bar area.
We ate the first evening at the "One and Two Halves" which was good value but very noisy, due to a family disco evening; lovely for a family but not great for two middle aged women!
The second evening, we ate Chinese at the "Travellers' Inn" the other side of the roundabout. It was basic Chinese takeaway fare but in a nice restaurant setting, inside the hotel. For £9.99 for three courses, it was a bargain but there was a reasonably priced general menu too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KentVinny Great place to stay
Good welcome upon arrival. Room was nicely furnished and very clean. Choice of pillows. Good advice given by reception staff as to where to eat, how to get into Birmingham by public transport etc. Breakfast was excellent value and despite the hotel being busy (with the cricket at Edgbaston and an Indian wedding), there was never any wait for any item as the stock ran low. The staff in the kitchen and waiting/buffet area deserve particular praise in respect of this. Walked to the Red Mango about 25 mins away and had an excellent curry. Would recommend this establishment to anyone staying at the hotel. The meal can be delivered to the hotel if you so wish. The only downside was the unavailabilty of Pay to View movies which is advertised on the company website. All TVs have been upgraded to 32" flat screen but you basically get freeview channels. This was a bit disappointing as Birmingham is about 30 mins away by bus, so if you wanted to see a movie then that is where you have to go. Apparently on installing the new screens the company took the decision to cease Pay to View - rather odd as this is a monetary loss.
You will hear traffic noise if your room is at the front, but it was not excessive and didn't keep me awake.
A very nice place to stay where customer service is first class. Ideal if you do not want a hotel in the centre of Birmingham and the associated noise of pubs and clubs turning out in the early morning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Incomesteps Great experience
From the moment we walked in and received the cheerful greeting from reception to the moment we walked out with a cheerful fairwell, there was very little to fault about this hotel. To nitpick, the breakfast room could be larger as it struggles to cope when the hotel is busy, but this is the only small fault I can find. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the bathroom space spotless. The whole staff were cheerful and helpful. An excellent weekend stay. Thank you..

Staff went out of their way for our sons 6th birthday. We arrived to find balloons, an activity pack and a birthday card in the room for him, it made his day!
The pub next door is very reasonably priced and the hotel as a whole is very clean.
