Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by grandmato4 Don't travel much
I don't travel much so really don't have much to compare my stay to. Although I recieved a discounted rate due to needed to travel for a medical proceedure, I was a little disappointed that there was no fridge or microwave in the room. The surfaces in the room had a layer of fine dust. But considering all things, the facilities met my needs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Roachinbathroom Roach in bathroom
Need I say more? I found a roach in the bathroom, tried to kill it but it ran into the room and the carpet was so dark and lighting in the area by the door was dim so I couldn't find it to know if I killed it or not.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Usual great experience turned poor with a pet
We have stayed at this particular Holiday Inn Express multiple times and enjoyed our stay each time.....until now. First we were greeted to be told that all of the government rate rooms ( I am military) had been sold and they couldn't accommodate. After I said I had a confirmation number for that room rate and wasn't going to accept that answer, I was told that it would be ok but not to say anything to other guests. We had never traveled with our pet and this was the first time. We expected the room to have a bit of a pet odor but this room was HORRIBLE! The door was tore up by a previous pet, there were "wet spots" all over the floor, dog hair so bad in the bathroom that you couldn't step on the floor without your feet being covered, the tub drained very slowly, outlet and fan didn't work in the bathroom and to top it off.....DIRTY SOCKS left in the corner. On a positive note, the bedding and towels were very clean. I didn't have great expectations for a pet room, but I think that maybe more than just the bed being made should have been done. We did not complain due to the hassle of actually getting the rate we had confirmed and the fact that we got in late and left early. The breakfast buffet was subpar and the kitchen staff should probably have uniforms because I didn't know who was running it from the customers.

We got the last room available - the pet owner who smokes. Neither applied to us but we had a very relaxing night in a clean and odorless room. Thanks again!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hookie Pets can stay, but it's not pet friendly
This is the 2nd holiday in the past 5 plus years we wouldn't stay again. The other was Gainsville,FL. 1st when we arrived at Mt. Vernon at 4:00PM our room wasn't ready-check in time is 3:00.. The attitude of girl at front desk was not good to say the least. Also, outside the entry door there were 5 signs to take your pets away from the property to do it job. To where that was we don't know. We walked around the entire building and could find no "designated area". Most pet pet friendly holiday Inns & other hotels have a basket & bags for pick up &to place in the basket! One last thing the attitude of one we were in contact with for breakfast was same as one checked us in . The one only bright spot of our stay was the bartender, she was very pleasant, even tho she was not our server. Our server was ok also.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by For the love of cars A little disappointed with housekeeping & breakfast
Very clean comfortable room. We stayed 2 nights. Our room was not serviced after our 1st night. Beds not being made was ok, but we needed clean towels & toilet paper. Called the front desk and they sent some up, but we should not have had to ask.
Breakfast was good, but we were disappointed that we had the same thing Saturday & Sunday. I really expected for breakfast to be changed up a little. We also found the breakfast staff was very unfriendly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good Value
The hotel is too close to the interstate and not insulated enough for all of the road noise.
Holiday Inn needs to go modern and provide power outlets on all tables for charging devices.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pathtepackrat No complaints with this hotel!
The beds and bedding are to die for. Wish I could have brought them home. I've never slept that well before. Very quiet rooms.
Very clean, crisp and neat inside and out
They accepted my small dog which alot of hotels won't.
I won't stay at any other hotel in this city but the Holiday Inn.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul in South Carolina WE ALWAYS STAY AT THIS HOTEL
When traveling cross country on I-24 / I-70 we always plan to stay at the Mt. Vernon, Il Holiday Inn. It's updated, clean, spacious rooms, friendly staff, has a great indoor pool that my wife always swims in. The only minor concern I have is that if the hotel is very busy the hot, buffet breakfast replenishment is slow (some foods run out and are not refilled quickly). Other than that, a keeper!

This Holiday Inn was the last stop on a long trip home. It was the most affordable and the nicest hotel we stayed in on our trip. We slept wonderfully and enjoyed all the TV stations they offered. If we are ever in Mount Vernon again, we will stay here!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KCtraveler21 Way back to KC
An outstanding place to stop between KC and Knoxville. Old Holidome that has filled in the pool and resort area. Older facility but very well maintained. Breakfast bar leaves a lot to be happy about. Limited selection but good food. The most outstanding thing about this unit is the quality of the staff. They are second to none. Great service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lynne33 Clean and friendly
Our room was clean and nicely decorated, with plenty of space handicapped guests to move around. Towels were plentiful and in good shape. The staff is friendly and helpful. Common areas are also clean and lovely. The continental breakfast exceeded our expectations with a nice variety of breakfast items. This is an excellent value for the money.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jv512 Not what I expected..
I booked a room that was suppose to include a fridge and microwave and the room did not include either of those. I found hair all over in the bathroom and on my towels. The breakfast did not have very many choices either. I will not be staying here again the next time I am in the area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Travelin'Girl Holiday Inn Mt Vernon
We pulled in after driving 880 miles to find a room that left much to be desired. The sheets were not crisp and clean looking and the air conditioning unit fan was very low and didn't do much of a job drowning out the highway noise. We just came from a Holiday Inn the previous night in Wyoming and the experience was good so what we found in Mt Vernon was unexpected. To cap it off, the breakfast the following morning was one of the worst continental breakfasts I've ever seen. Based on this experience, I will think twice before staying at another Holiday Inn.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NC guy breakfast was lacking
I stay at many Holiday Inns and this was the most lacking breakfast I have seen in years. Small selection, only apple juice and it was so hard to get it to come out the staff helped older folks and acted put out about it.
Sorry but you all can so much better. Left there and went to McDs which I don't like but needed something for the long drive. Disappointed.
Room was OK and bed was fine.

My husband and I were really impressed with our one night stay. We wished we could have stayed longer. Starting from the welcome at check in until we checked out, we enjoyed every minute. The breakfast buffet was really upscale and included which was a surprise. Also glad to see they use re-useable kitchenware. Pet fee was reasonable as well. All in all this is a four star hotel. Front desk was very friendly. Thanks Travis!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Travel Weary Front Desk Unbelievable
We arrived at this Holiday Inn after a long day of driving. My husband was not feeling well and we struggled with getting him comfortable enough to sleep. At 6:30 a.m. in the morning the front desk calls and says another guest has reported an alarm going off and wants to know if it is in our room. What on earth would cause her to do this? Did she call all the rooms on the floor or pick a room at random? Wasn't it possible for the complaining guest to go out in the hall and try and pinpoint the alarm or better yet, an employee come up to the floor and investigate? After this we went down to discover a breakfast buffet that provided cold eggs and cold ham.
