Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2012CFLSTC Really great place to spend the night
This was one of the cleanest, friendliest hotels I've ever stayed in.
The room was amazingly clean with a very comfortable bed. The attention to cleaning detail was great, I couldn't find any sign of dirt, even in the corners.
The towels were soft and fluffy, there was a great variety of pillows to chose from, and breakfast was great.
I will definitely stay here in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Old Drummer Very nice
Stayed for one night while traveling back from TN Smoky Mountains. Hotel appears to be only a couple of years old... if that. Room was great, front desk staff was very helpful. Only small negative would be the free breakfast; selection was a bit lacking and pans were frequently empty...but then again, there were evidently several groups of baseball teams staying that weekend, so activity in the breakfast area was very busy. Would choose this location again in the future, should our travel plans have us in the area.

Would have been a nice stay if it wasn't for the fact that we had to plunge our own toilet to use it properly. Doesn't the people who clean the rooms ever check such things?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joyce0619 Perfect stop-over
We were very pleased at this hotel. They should have a sign on the main road directing you to the hotel though. my GPS helped since it is off the main road. The hotel was very clean and the front staff was very pleasant and informative. We stayed in room 102 and it was a large, comfortable room, the bathroom was big and roomy with nice fluffy towels. Everything worked well in the room. The breakfast area was nice and clean. The variety and freshness of the food was excellent. All the staff I came in contact with was very pleasant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by momof3bz Misrepresented location
We reserved this hotel because we were visiting a local attraction and it was listed as nearby...well, their definition of "nearby" and ours were different. We were "28 min" from the attraction, but we refer to nearby as 10-15 min. This was disappointing but we got over it. However, I won't get over the front desk clerk being very rude to my 6 yr old fro leaning on the counter. The breakfast was one of the worst tasting "free" breakfasts we've ever eaten at a hotel. The redeeming quality was the cleanliness of the room, friendly check out clerk, and overall appearance. As long as you are just passing through and aren't traveling with an active small child, you should enjoy your stay just fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kyguy Great hotel, friendly staff
The rooms are the best. The breakfast is great, has a great selection and is kept fresh. The only improvement I would make is the hot tub. It was only lukewarm and the water was not clear and no bubbles from the jets. Overall, though, a really nice hotel. I plan to continue to use this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holipress It's OK
The guests who go to Reds game will check in midnight which means you have to give a new pass word for internet using.
Don't forget it!, because pass word will change midnight.
We (guests) know that, but front desk person don't realize that.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by petvette No working vending machines on 2nd or 3rd floor & Not enough seating at breakfast.
My husband is a diabetic and I will take it up with Customer Care the response I received from the front desk when I reported the urgent need to have a working vending machine available on my floor. I couldn't believe my ears.
Also, while the food at breakfast was fine, many of the guest left to find breakfast outside HIE because there was no where to sit and the staff didn't seem to mind seeing guest standing around with plates of food in their hands and eating while waiting for others to finish their breakfast and leave. What a mess at my hotel of choice! I have never had a stay that made me as angry as this one and I was traveling with my husband along with a 5, 6 and 7 year old. I thanked God several times that I was able to seat the boys by another guest giving up his chair so I could have the three boys at the same table.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doc Cherry Creation Museum Trip
My family and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express while we visited the nearby Creation Museum. The experience was great. It was conveniently located close to a movie theater and many restaurants. The service was great and everything was clean. The hot tub/spa was wonderful, but the pool was VERY COLD! We would return again, and we are very selective about where we stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by agp62 Nice, friendly service
We had an unexpected car breakdown while traveling. This was the closest hotel and that worked well because I am an IHG member. I was happy that it had a suite as we were 2 adults and 3 children. Also, having a pool helped keep the kids occupied.
Breakfast in the morning was nice. Good coffee.
The only problem was trying to keep an even temperature in our room. It was either too warm or too cool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chicagomel Welcome respite to holiday traffic
We needed a last minute reservation and we made our reservations on line. We needed to switch rooms upon check-in, as I thought I'd reserved the extended King instead of the regular King suite. The clerk eventually got us what we needed, but seemed a bit stressed and confused - no one appeared to be waiting. When I came back for change for the vending machine (a pain!) I waited for over five minutes before I realized she was behind the counter playing on her phone. It was fine, she did help. Just wasn't what I would rate as excellent. When we checked out at 6am, the overnight clerk was there doing the same thing. Maybe they should put a bell on the counter...

We attended the Nascar Race at the Kentucky Speedway. We did not spend a lot of time at the hotel before the race. After, we were too tired and it was too late to visit any of the amenities. Maybe next time!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PEN12 STAYED FOR NASCAR RACE
Proximity to Kentucky Speedway was our reason for selecting this property. Overall stay was fine. Main complaint was traffic noise from I-71 and train noise from nearby train track.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ElizabethInCinci Comfortable bed, great service at check-out, not so great at check-in
I checked in after midnight and was disappointed that the staff member was actually quite rude. Now I know it was late but she didn't seem real interested in doing much more than the basics of checking me in. The staff member in the morning who checked me out was WONDERFUL - very helpful and with a great smile on her face!! The beds were very comfortable and, even thought facing I-71, the room was very easy to sleep in. I'd definitely stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuckie123 VERY clean and comfortable.
We traveled to the Newport area and decided to stay a bit farther away to save on travel costs. We chose to use the quality of the Holiday Inn brand name and we are glad we did.
This property was clean, updated, and only an extra 10 min. drive from most of the popular tourist attractions (Newport Aquarium/Newport Levee).
Our room was sparkling clean, the pool was the right temperature and the hot tub helped us relax after nearly 8 hours of walking about museums all day.
The staff is friendly, the breakfast was hot and tasty, and our bathroom area was clean, dusted and wiped down properly. All of the above we noticed less than excellent comments about but we found all were excellent during our stay.
I would recommend this property to all travelers looking for a place to relax, especially those with small kids.

The room was excellent except for the bathroom. The lighting was so bad I could not see good to shave. I don,t know what wattage of bulbs were in the fixtures but I would guess about 40 watt. I would not stay at this site again for that reason because if I can,t see good enough to shave it is not worth the stay!

We stayed in a different Holiday Inn Express on our trip for Saturday night, and was scheduled to stay another night. The experience was terrible, so we checked out early and decided to stay here on Sunday night, the 2nd night of our stay in this area. Let me say that our experience was wonderful. The staff was top notch. The room was clean and had a nice smell. The bed was extremely comfortable. It was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel to any travelers. We had no problems or issues while staying here, and we are making it a favorite hotel for us to visit again the next time we stay in the area.
