We usually stay at a Holiday Inn Express. Now i know why. the rooms were very out dated. No access to Ethernet plugs or enough outlets to plug in chargers, laptops, etc. The Desktop PC available in the business center is virtually useless, as I was unable to open attachments needed for business. the reason....no Adobe acrobat. A FREE application!
The food is severely overpriced. I get the same breakfast for free that this hotel charged 9.99 for, plus I do not have to tip.
$5.99 for a donut and juice is laughable.
When we had maid service, we had to ask for fresh towels, enough Kleenex, more toilet paper,more shampoo, more bar soap and more conditioner.
We were there four nights and not once were left enough supplies. We always had to go to the desk.
The bathroom had no towel bars or hooks, the handle on the shower was "tricky" and we had to be told how to turn it on. There was no place in the shower area to easily storer a towel, warm up or have a place to set something.
The extra toilet paper was in a different part of the bathroom than the commode was.
And no one acknowledged our IHG membership or offer us the free cookies that were sitting out in the lobby all nice and stale.
The staff were very pleasant, but seem to be working under conditions which inhibit their ability to provide top services.
And the building is in serious need of some makeover.
If i can avoid it, i will never again use this facility.

This is a businessman's hotel for the most part, but it also caters to the vacationer. The staff is first class; very professional and helpful. If you have a chance, speak with the gentleman who is in the restaurant at breakfast. He's a terrific guy and is the example that everyone in the hotel should follow. If you got something to say about your stay, good or bad, contact the General Manager. She's quite approachable and ready to do what is necessary for great customer service. Rooms are clean and well appointed, perhaps lacking a bit of light in the evening. WiFi is adequate, but can be spotty when busy. Personally, I prefer wired internet, but that's just my opinion. The hotel's pool and exercise areas are well maintained. Breakfast buffet is very good and high level of customer service. A little history - The hotel is a bit off of Route 53, which is also historical Route 66. Dell Rhea's Chicken Basket isn't too far away, as is a Portillo's or a Lou Malnati's take out (They do deliver to the hotel) or White Fence Farm. All four have terrific food.

I have stayed here multiple times, the hotel rooms are clean and kept up. The breakfast buffet is good and the supper menu is lite but for me it is just right.
