I've never been more impressed with a Holiday Inn Express. We will stay here the next time we travel to this area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kareng412 Convenient location for an overnight
I have adopted this location as my overnight stopover when driving from my home in Texas to my family in Ohio. It is a good location, convenient to I-44, close to a multitude of restaurants, car service, Target, Starbucks, etc. There is a steak n shake that is walkable.
When I stayed there going westbound, the evening staff recognized me from previous stays.
The bedding gives the right amount of cushiness and I slept much better than other hotels. Love the big tv mounted to the wall!
That is the good part. The bad part: there is an ongoing renovation that I hope ends SOON. Some minor issues that I hope are noted:
*The elevators are small and look like a construction zone, and rattle..
* There is only one ice machine, and it's in the lobby. I traipsed all over two floors, following signs, including the map in the room before I figured that out. How hard would it be to say "pardon the mess"
*You can't close the bathroom door unless you wedge yourself between the toilet and the vanity... which is too large for the size of the room. Good thing I was alone.
*The renovated rooms are very contemporary, which I find to be a cold, sterile style. The floors are a light wood laminate. I suppose that makes it easier to clean but I hate it. Between taking a shower and getting into bed, the bottoms of my feet got dirty. How is that possible, unless they did not mop the floor? I had to go back, wet a washcloth, and wash my feet while sitting on the bed. Yuck.
*At least internet is included in the room charge. I still find it ironic that when you are in the budget properties, breakfast is included, but not in the supposed "full service". I chose to go to the IHOP across the street and not the on-site restaurant that did not have the same selection.
I will continue to stop here because most of this issues are fixable, or potentially fixable.
