Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveDani Clean rooms and great staff
This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and both visits we found a very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, and a good breakfast selection.
If in this area again, will definitely choose this hotel as a resting place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ANDSONS GOOD SERVICE
We spent a couple of nights at the Holiday inn express in Richwood KY. Our first room had a foul odor and we had to be moved. Our second room was great. It was big enough to accomodate my family. The staff was friendly. The breakfast was fair. We were able to relax. We would visit this property again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Michigan55 2 month advance reservation totally ignored!
On June 24th I reserved Labor Day weekend from Aug. 30-Sept.1st. Two months in advance I requested ground floor since I was traveling with my elderly mother. When we checked in we were given the 3rd floor! I told the desk person that I requested 1st floor and he said "oh well, first come , first serve!" I was told check in was at 4 but the hotel says 3:00. Then, before we even went to our room I had to make an appt. to have the carpet cleaned the next day and I had to be out at noon and the floors would be wet for 3-4 hours. WRONG! The floors stayed wet until Sunday evening and we could not take off our shoes to relax at all. The 3rd floor smelled like it was the smoking floor and I requested non smoking. I don't know if smoking is allowed in KY but I had to sign a paper at the desk saying we would not smoke. Well, someone is because we smelled it every day. Breakfast menu was okay as they offer many items but it doesn't mean whatever is on the menu board when arriving is going to be served. Sausage gravy was only on Saturday and was room temperature as I was the first one served when she brought it out. The one person working the dining room couldn't adequately keep up with the demand of stocking plates, napkins, plasticware, food etc. My mother stayed in the room so I was alone in the dining room wanting to help the employee. Creamer canisters were empty all 3 days I was there so I took the lids off to give the gal a hint they needed refilled. I am gluten free so fortunately there was bananas and yogurt.
The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. We were placed facing the interstate
so needless to say, I had to sleep with earplugs because of the traffic noise. We did not use the pool but the people that did tracked water into the tiled hallway and my mother slipped in front of the elevators where the door is to the pool.
We paid for 3 nights stay and couldn't use our room one entire day because the floors were wet. One more thing, my mother is short #4'11"# and had an extremely hard time getting into the bed so maybe they should have a little stool available. My family camps at the local state park every year and my elderly mother is unsure if she wants to stay here again. I'm extremely disappointed that even with a 2 month advance reservation, our wishes were not fulfilled. I guess we should have been a walk in instead.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lexus112 Nice Location, Right of Highway
I wanted to really give a good review for this hotel. I ask for a quiet location and the first night it was very peaceful, but the next day a group of teenagers was there running around in the halls and being very loud in the halls even the adults that was with them were yelling in the halls at the kids. It probably was a team or something but might peaceful night was no more. The rooms are very up to date and clean but for some reason the floors in the hall and in my room were squeaky and weak. The only thing I liked for breakfast was the cinnamon rolls, bacon was to crispy and thin and the eggs were egg beaters. So I just got a banana and cinnamon roll to go. I tried to use the equipment in the workout room but the treadmill was so loud it sounded like it was going to break and the bike did not work right either. Should have told management but I was just not in the mood to complain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 69Paul Great personal service
I found the staff, especially the front desk, extremely helpful, friendly, and flexible. From keeping two rooms in the same name and different ways to pay straight to allowing extended checkout time when I was involved in an accident. They were personable, knew us by name after check-in, even though this was our first stay, had a good breakfast menu and a well arranged facility.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by meatpie123 Great service! But curtains didn't close all the way..
Employees were great! Our room faced the highway, and our curtains didn't close all the way, so we saw the headlights, from the cars all night. But would stay here again, cause of the great staff that we dealt with!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by YPT1998 A few things to improve
Nice comfortable room but the fan on the AC/heat is way too loud in most Holiday Inns.
The gym is a joke. They should not be able to advertise they have a fitness facility with 3 pieces of equipment. I have to pay to go to a decent gym. I'm wondering if its not worth paying more so I don't have to leave the hotel to workout.
I can never find the stairs, I don't like taking the elevators.
The scramble eggs were gross, wish they would have boiled eggs at all holiday inns.
The receptionist was very helpful at finding a dealer to fix my truck problems.

This property was well-maintained and the rooms were comfortable and clean. Jason at the front desk was wonderful and very helpful. Holiday Inn should really work on grooming him for management. He was so helpful and pleasant with every guest I saw him interact act with during our stay. I would highly recommend this Holiday Inn.

This is the best value of the year for my wife and myself . We have stayed with your competitors and hands down this was the best, I love the size of the shower, the bed was very comfortable .The overall size of the suite was very good . The staff was very accommodating,and Jacob should be teaching how to manage a hotel he is the best. All your managers should be so good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ernie59 Noisy Bathroom Fan and Blinking Light
The bathroom fan was very noisy and woke me up in the morning when my wife got up earlier than I did. At least it could be turned off at night.
What was more disturbing was a blinking light from what I assume was a smoke detector. It blinked about 60 blinks/minute all night.

Nice new hotel. Stayed three nights. Enjoy the pool, but water was colder than most pools. Room telephone didn't work and was not fixed during out stay. With five in the large room we only got room service towels, etc. for three each night and had to go to the desk each day since the phones did not work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SmokingTravelers Convenient, Clean, Quiet, Comfy & Helpful - Ideal!
This location met our needs superbly in every respect. Primarily we needed a good night's sleep after an eight hour drive and a location that would enable us to pick someone up at the airport the next morning before continuing on to the weekend's wedding festivities in Oxford. The hotel is right by I-75 and within walking distance of several restaurants, yet it was serenely quiet and immaculately clean, plus the beds were heavenly, so we had a great night's sleep. After our tasty and nourishing breakfast, the front desk staff was quite helpful with directions for getting to the airport and valuable advice on avoiding potential delays due to the food festival traffic. We hope to return to explore fascinating Cincinnati after this first visit to the area, and definitely plan to stay at this hotel then if they still offer smoking rooms.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pj46 sleeping
The room was great and very clean and kept very clean. The breakfast is wonderful. We also stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Lexington, NC. I was here for four nights. Every night I could not sleep properly. You took in a motorcycle gang and their actions were abominable!! They made so much noise late into the night and morning that I couldn't sleep. I did call the desk and went down to the desk to report it. I was told that they "walk the halls to hear the level of noise". Well, maybe they should have come into my room and try to sleep!!! I talked to a minister and his wife who said they hadn't slept all while they were there. When we were checking out another man was compaining of no sleep because of noise!! The minister told me that the "motorcycle group" was in the dining area every night (which I saw) and he said that he saw them drinking alcohol!!! What kind of a place are you running where there are families and there was a christian group of teenagers with their leader, and people like us and the minister and his wife??? The minister said that he won't be back if you are going to cater to people like that. We won't either. We never had any problem at the Holiday Inn Express at Lexington, NC.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kathy578 Great Place...Seems everything is like new
The staff was so friendly and we were able to get a great nights sleep.
Had a little trouble finding it..our GPS took us to the old location. We were traveling North. We couldn't find it, until we returned to the hwy and headed North. Saw it from the hwy; went to the next exit and turned around and went back. Very glad we did.
Will definitely plan on return stays at this Inn.
