Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sharkhotel Room and overall experience
Hotel is in need of face lift. Carpet dirty, hallways stale and old feeling. Trouble with keys to room working, trouble with wifi, trouble with keys working working on outside entrances. Tried to get something to eat at 2:30 pm in restaurant. Closed till 4. Staff at front desk not well trained. Windows did not open. Fresh air Would have helped alleviate staleness in room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by paul4511 toilet in my room dirty!
I am a loyal holiday inn business traveler. this holiday inn was the worst I ever encountered! I had to clean my toilet before using and the room smelled musty! I went down to the lounge for happy hour and even more disappointed. the appitisers were all gone after the 1st hour and were never refilled for the guests. The lounge area was dirty, floor sticky , bar sticky. the restaurant was clean

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bsuz27 a perfect end to a long day
We were on the way back from Colorado & we were having trouble finding a place to stay. We had used Holiday Inn the whole trip so I called the 800 number & they found 2 rooms for us. We were so happy to be out of the car after 13 hours and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was and the staff. Would highly recommend this hotel chain & it will be my first choice in future travels.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Deafracer Too much to pay for minimal anemities
If there was a breakfast included for free at all times of the week then there would be no complaint. However; we arrive to find that breakfast is in a restaurant that is shared by another hotel chain and the selections are limited and pricey, 10 dollars for a basic American breakfast!? which consisted of "tater tots", 3 eggs, sausage, toast, and a juice. The server asked if we had a room discount card which we find out that the hotel only gives on Monday to Friday but not on the weekends. The person working the desk was curt and unpleasant when asked about the discount. The server in the restaurant was awesome but since they don't work for Holiday Inn this is not a positive for the hotel. I could have stayed down the road for better service and a cheaper price. This is not how a Priority Club member should be treated and we come to expect better thinks from Holiday Inn.

We stay at this Holiday Inn often for my husband's medical appointments, and we are never disappointed. As usual, the staff is great, the rooms clean and comfortable (the small refrigerator/microwave is a real plus), the cost is reasonable, and the shuttle is very convenient in order to get to the "impossible-to-park" medical centers.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IowaHawkeye Never Again
I have the "opportunity" to spend 100 plus nights in motel rooms throughout the year. I have stayed in rooms that were excellent and then there was this room. I will never stay here again. I was not welcomed as a Platinum member, the people working the front desk didn't seem to care if I was taken care of or not.
There were no bath towels in the room and when I tried to call the front desk, the phone did not work. I reported this to the front desk in the morning and was told they had been busy and probably did not have time or forgot to supply the room with towels.
Holiday Inn properties have always been a excellent to work with and I was extremely disappointed in this property.......never again!

The front desk staff was rude and inattentive. Questions went unanswered and normal hotel requests were rebuffed with hostility.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WeddingGuy Nice enough place for a night, unfriendly staff
This is a mediocre hotel with an unfriendly and unhelpful staff. While the cost is certainly fair for what you get, and the rooms were comfortable enough, I was incredibly disapointed with the attitude of the desk staff. They were uninterested in customer service and frankly, just plain rude. It's a fine place to stay for a night, but nothing more.

Value/Services ratio is not acceptable, you would expect better for the price
WIFi was terrible, I had much better signal from next door, one night I had to use my phone hotspot to work

Did not feel welcome when checking in nor when we checked out did the staff on duty ask about our stay. Different feel than other Holiday Inn Express we hav e stayed in.
Carpet must of been shampooed as floor was damp. Smallest bathroom I have ever seen.
Would like to have free breakfast in the morning.

The bathroom was extremely small and the Air conditioning does not reach the bathroom; thus is was extremely hot. It istTime to invest some money at this facility.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Scott45 Room smelled
The staff was great, the food was good but I am a non-smoker and my room reeked horribly of smoke. I could not wait to get home and wash all my belongings.
The fitness center was a joke with old and broken machines.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CMDRE68 When visiting Hoover's Museum, stay here!
The folks at the Hoover presidential Library and Museum recommended this property. I am glad they did. Even if is a little far, i.e. 13 miles, from the Museum it is worth it. Quiet, well run, excellent staff, a most pleasant manager's reception and a restaurant immediately adjacent to the property. After a rather disastrous stay the previous night at a Holiday Inn, this property restored my faith in the chain.

Thought I was reserving a room at the Holiday Inn Express that I have stayed at before. Found it was a full service location. I enjoyed it more.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Travel3 Great room, but!
The room was great with a separate area forth pull out bed which is what we wanted. The only problem was that there were no sheets or pad for the pull out bed. The front desk sent someone wit sheets but they did not have a pad. Then Mattress had a plastic wrap that made uncomfortabl with just a sheet over the top. It really b needed a pad. Also, the room was more then our reservation stated which the desk cork could not explain or do anything about. The difference was only $10 so no big deal but still poor customer service policy. The room service hamburger was one of the best room service meals we have had.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fromdaupeh Warm and friendly
We stopped in early for the night to avoid a storm and it was a great move. We were greated warmly and once checked in got a great recommendation to a local restaurant. Although the motel seemed crowded with some sort of reunion, the staff made all guests feel welcome. The room was clean and set up nicely. I had stopped in town last year to visit one of the local sights, but now I regret spending the night then. Will surely remember to stop again if in the area again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nicole88 Horrible experience
First of all I had trouble checking in because I got charged twice, so by an inconvenience my friend had to put it in her card, which I still haven't got a refund for the original charge. Also, there was still coffee in the coffee maker when we got to our room which is gross, the sheets were stained and no toilet paper.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sueandkids Excellent Pool Size and Hot Tub!
The pool area and hot tub was fabulous! The water temperature and cleanliness was top rate! Having the restaurant attached for convenience was an added feature along with excellent food.
The rooms were good sized with comfortable beds. We had a very good experience and would recommend this hotel to others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wildwendy All's good but the food
Great location, nice enough staff,decent rates. Comfy rooms except the bathroom is so small and ill-designed that you have to negotiate around the door when it's open--it blocks off the tub and limits access to the stool.
Breakfast in the cafe was maybe the worst I've ever had--dry, uncooked instant oatmeal floating atop some tepid grey water. First meal I ever sent back. One poor cheerful server ran the entire show and customers had to call into the kitchen to find her to pay the bill. Maybe it's better for lunch and dinner.Understaffed would be an improvement.
Overall, I'd definitely stay again but not chance eating there.
