The first day I arrived I was exhausted from the drive. I was in town for a family funeral. I wanted to rest up from the drive and before gathering with family. However, the people that was in the room above me sounded like a herd of elephants above me. I went down to the front desk to ask about what was going on above me. They ensured me they would call up to the room above me to ask them to settle down. All it did was make it worse, it was like they got louder on purpose. So, I gave up on resting. I knew the people above me wasn't going to allow me to rest. We decided to go on to eat dinner somewhere.
Although the housekeeping came in our room each day to change our garbage and to give us fresh towels, they never replenished our toilet tissue. We ended up having to use our facial tissue and ended up running out of that as well. My cousin stayed there as well in another room and ended up giving us a roll of tissue out of her room.
The room was comfortable, the breakfast was great as well as the dining room. The only problem I had there was other people that was staying there was rude and disrespectful on cutting in front of you and snatching things out from in front of you instead of getting in the back of the line. Overall, the hotel was a nice stay. It was the other people that was staying there that made it bad on occasions.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mikie47 Not a good HIE.
Not a friendly greeting, no priority club greeting, dirty room, cracked tiles on floor. Overall, not what I would have expected at a HIE.

This will be the last time staying at this property. It keeps getting worse and worse. First, I have stayed here at least 40 nights in the past 12 months and as a Platinum Member I was never offered an upgrade. I didn't even know they had any rooms other than 2 Queen beds until a month ago when I had to change my room and they put me into a King room. The last time I stayed, I had to change my room TWICE in 4 days. The first time, the room had a terrible musty smell, which was coming from the mat in the bathtub. It was peeled up and had horrible gunk under it. This didn't happen overnight and it's a shame I had to point this out when they have housekeeping staff that clean the room EVERY DAY. When they moved me to a new room, it ended up being the same room that I asked to be moved FROM the week prior! This room had an air conditioner that was rattling very loudly because the front plastic grill was broken and loose. I can't believe I told them about this the week prior and it STILL wasn't fixed. Obviously the staff and the management just don't care about service and the owners probably only care about making as much money as they can. This hotel isn't cheap either! I've stayed in HIExpress hotels and full-blown HI hotels in other places that were WAY better in service and condition and a lot less per night. I even stayed at a higher-end hotel recently that cost less than this place! Next time I come to the area I'll be staying somwehere else.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pies Good breakfast
The hotel atmosphere was nice but the room had a stale odor and air even with the air conditioning operating. Male at the front desk checking out didn't say good morning or anything else for that matter, and simply handed me my receipt.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charp Room problems
Everytime I go to this place I have an issue with a room. The 1st time the room was not what I asked for. The 2nd time the room had been smoked in and when I told the lady at the front desk she gave me some spray which did not help. The 3rd time the room smelled musky! The 4th time I stayed when I got in my room the A/C did not work. They changed it out and when I walked it it smelled nothing but smoke. They changed it out with one from a smoking room. So, I had to change rooms because of the smell. If it happens again I will change places. I go here every month and stay 2 to 4 days.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FOlv Bad experience
- Not recognition on Priority Member
- Very poor breakfast options
- Can not understand how a smoking section can be mixed with a not smoking section?.. even my room was not smoking room, the aile was full of smoke smell.
-The room was clean but not ok.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DisapointedGuest Great jacuzzi, serious plague problems
Great jacuzzi, big and confortable, but there is a serious bug problem. There were millipedes and spiders everywhere, which made the experience hard to enjoy. Specially breakfast.
Also, there were long hairs on the bed sheets, and some of the towels smelled like cigarrete, which was annoying, considering it was a non smoking room.
This is NOT what I'd call "Holiday Inn" quality, Too bad!
I DO NOT recomend this hotel.

Great place to stay. Breakfast had a lot of variety and was warm and fresh. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and the checkout in and out process was very efficient. I would defenitely reccomend this location to friends and I would stay here again.

This was a terrible experience from check in to check out. This is not Holiday Inn Express quality. I was not greeted as a Priority Club member, had to wait to check in while the clerk finished a private phone call and was then treated rudely.
The breakfast was horrible. Thankfully, there was a Cracker Barrel nearby. We have stayed at this location before, but it has really gone down. Too bad!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MichaelM1012 Just ok
It isn't what we have come to expect from a Holiday Inn Express. They did not have their famous cinnamon rolls (ran out several days prior), and not much to choose from on the breakfast buffet. The refrigerator was broke in the breakfast area so there wasn't any yogurt or milk. The hotel was ok just not what we have come to expect after staying at other Holiday Inn Express'.

We stayed here on the first day of our vacation and found it to be excellent. On the way home from vacation a week later we sought out this Holiday Inn for one more night.
The same woman was on the front desk and she was all smiles from the time we arrived until we checked out.
On the first stay we forgot our laundry bag and when I inquired about it the second stay, it was handed to me with a smile.
This Holiday Inn is a must stay for anyone passing through this area.

I enjoy staying at this location; easy access to the hotel from the interstate and is within walking distance of many restaurants.
The staff is always welcoming. I enjoy coming in from work in the evenings to the freshly baked cookies (only Monday thru Thursday; I don't miss them on Friday's though because I am home) and fresh brewed coffee 24 hours a day.

A clerk gave my room, which I had reserved for several months, and was guarranteed, to someone who didn't have a reservation, but stayed in my room the night before. I was then forced to move at the last minute to a different room.
