Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bryndog great if you have a pet
It was great that we could bring our little dog for this overnight break in our journey from a holiday down south. There are not so many pet friendly hotels, so we will be looking at Holiday Inn Express Hotels first in future. this is a dog-lovers country, so you are onto a good idea Holiday Inn! £10 per night for a pet to stay with you seems reasonable to me.
We had a visit to Shugborough which was a very good finish to our holiday.
The staff at this hotel were very polite and caring and the accommodation is a good standard for the price. We had a evening meal in our room, brought over from the pub opposite. Our little dog really enjoyed being able to sit in the bar area at breakfast time (he enjoyed a sausage too!).
I think this hotel is ideal for business (free wifi) or for a one-night stop over like ours.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jumbogut1 Great holiday location
Ideally situated for Alton Towers, Monkey World, RAF Cosford, Ironbridge Museums combined with access via motorways to all areas. I found the room clean and comfortable and the staff more than happy to point out areas of interest and to give directions. I will stay there again next time I visit the Midlands.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PPP75 Not disappointed.
Location good, close to motorway so good access when travelling, plenty of parking space and not too much traffic noise. Staff very efficient and friendly. Wifi works well all over the hotel. Pub opposite offers family friendly atmosphere and good choice of food & drink.
Negative points, the rooms are on the small side and our bathroom floor was permanently damp in a small area suggesting a leak from somewhere, but otherwise the room was generally clean and well maintained. Good choice for breakfast but the scrambled egg best avoided! Overall, not fantastic but I wasn't expecting 5 star for the price so not disappointed.

We had a problem with the shower. Staff were advised of this as we went in for breakfast and it was repaired before we returned to our room. The free internet was very useful and much appreciated. Excellent service all round and very friendly and helpful staff.

Great Choice for visiting Alton Towers, Great value and discount tickets available as a room package. Very easy to find just off junction 13 M6.
Only negative is rooms were very hot, fan provided in room but noisy to keep on overnight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arakapas A fabulous stay
We have visited Stafford many times to visit old friends, but our first stay in a Holiday Inn, we loved it and we will be back in October. The staff were great, the room was quiet, comfortable, and our whole stay was very relaxing.
We are staying in Edinburgh later in the year and we hope that the Holiday Inn there is just as good.

The toilet had not been adequately cleaned. The shower looked dated.
There was limited choice at breakfast: fruit (only a few oranges), yogurts (vanilla and fudge) and cereals (rice crispies and cornflakes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Betsie7 clean and comfortable room

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by oxo27 motorway break
Needed an overnight in Stafford area. Hotel was fine, but the exterior is a bit industrial and off putting at first. Choice of Chinese or Pub to eat in. Overall a good stopping point.
Just one caution. When leaving in a car and turning right towards the motoway it can be a little dangerous as traffic is coming at you fast round a bend.

Have stayed at Holiday Inn stafford on many occasions and this time like previous was very impressed with the high standard of both the hotel itself and its staff. Added to this there are 2 excellent places to eat on the hotel's doorstop.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pink kid Not the best
Hotel staff were friendly and hotel itself was ok!
Our room was on the ground floor. It smelt damp, the cover on the sofa bed was covered in stains and needed a good wash and the runner along the bottom of the bed was also stained and covered in hair as if a small dog had been sleeping on it!!
Breakfast was poor - sausages, beans and scrambled egg which didn't look very appetising!
We got a cheap deal and only stayed for 1 night as it was a friends wedding at the Moat House!
Didn't asked to be moved rooms as we were only using it to change and sleep but I did mention all of this to the receptionist when checking out!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by swissericsister Handy location
This hotel is in a good location if you are travelling down the M6 or doing something in Stafford and the area.
The hotel is comfortable even though the beds are only doubles.
It is a shame there is no Air Conditioning as the rooms can be very hot and stuffy.
We found the breakfast choice to be quite limited and the items were not replenished very often.....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rossco1990 Good for the towers
I recently travelled here to go to Alton Towers. on arrival I was greeted and checked in. very friendly staff and our room was also easy to find. Room was Spacious good view over seeing parking lot no room noise or not that I could here and bathroom was in great shape.
Though no Plug sockets were available near beds there are two how ever one was taken up by a fan.
the problem we had it was way to hot and the fan did not really work we ended up taking the duvet out and just using a sheet but it still felt way to hot. in the morning went and had the breakfast and you get a lot of selection but not a lot of selection there were options of HOT Sausages Egg(which I don't eat from buffets) and beans continentals cossets of quasongs and a few sweet bights toast. you also get cereal and yogurt's.
Also IF you have your key card to close to anything electronic or credit cards you wont be getting in to your room anytime soon

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shakatak A Firm Favourite When Travelling to Stafford
This is a well placed Holiday Inn and easy to find. The facilities are of a very high standard and just what you need after a long day travelling round Birmingham!
I would recommend this hotel, the staff are pleasant and the room was comfortable and clean. There is everything you need for a good nights sleep.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Giverblue13 Not as good as other holiday inns visited
Whilst the location was excellent, adjacent to the motorway, not much else was memorable about this stay which wasn't negative. The aircon provided consisted of a fan in the room. The food offered included an up market chinese restaurant and a family pub chain. The pub was selected and the food found to be abysmal. Firstly the generic menu didn't match what was on offer, and the food was bland and tasteless. For this reason we will not be visiting this holiday inn again. In fact on our journey back we opted for a different hotel chain and were pleasantly satisfied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RozR First class customer service
The staff at the Holiday Inn Express Stafford couldn't have been more helpful when we arrived en route home from France. Having driven all day we just wanted to relax with some food from the great Chinese restaurant across the road. The staff were more than happy to provide plates and cutlery so we could either eat in our room or in their lounge.
They were very friendly, explained everything we needed to know and were keen to help in any way they could. A first class effort in customer service!
Hotel was really easy to find - it's just off the Stafford junction of the M6 so easy to leave and re-enter the M6.
Free, inclusive, buffet breakfast was a great bonus making the stay a great price and the fact it was a relaxed buffet was great for the kids.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Peeky Good overall stay
Unfortunately and not for the first time I have had a room over the main entrance and experienced talking,shouting & laughing at all hours of the night and early morning from smokers at the entrance to the hotel. I stay with you quite often to break my journey during a long drive so wish an undisturbed night's sleep. Could the smokers not be 'put' elsewhere so as not to disturb people like somewhere across the car park. I mentioned all this to the receptionist as I was checking out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simon69 Nice and clean, handy location
This is the about the eighth time we have stayed in this hotel, we book two rooms as it is a family if five, three adults and two children, one of the children has special needs, the pullout bed is like sleeping on a bag of rocks! We also left micro chips in the kitchen for our youngest child's breakfast as he has Autism and only eats chips in the morning, but these were thrown out of the kitchen! As so he had no breakfast. The rooms are too warm and need air conditioning. The location brings us back to this a Hotel, but I will have a look at what other Hotels are around. The staff on duty in the mornings are very rude and do not even talk to you, so breakfast can be a help yourself, and good bye affair.
