We were impressed esp. with the gals that prepared breakfast. They did a fantastic job with so many guests, keeping the food ready, hot and tasted great.

Best pillows I've ever had in a hotel. No need to bring your own. I didn't use some of mine because theirs were great. One bed was very comfortable, however the other bed (both queens) was a different mattress and way too soft. In the future I would expect the same mattresses on both beds. Very clean room. Smelled very nice. Biggest complaint was the hot water. It would go cold to warm, cold to warm every couple minutes. Never fully hot. Overall, a good experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by corvette98 rooms were good but mini frieg was broken apon arrival
never will stay in a room where the elevators are just on the other side of the room. could not sleep and was not relaxed due to elevator noise and very loud banging down the hall from not sure what. there was no inn dinner options which was a big let down.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mrocka2k 1 year Anniversary Trip
I planned a stay at the HIE months ago, I was so excited about celebrating my 1 year anniversary in Branson. I watched the reviews like crazy so I was so eager to see the hotel for myself. Upon arrival the lobby was beautifully decorated & the front desk staff was nice. They got us checked in quickly we stayed in room 525. Upon entering the room we were meet with a very strong mildew smell which was a bit disturbing but other than that the room was nice. The bed was comfy & the room was clean. I really enjoyed how futuristic the shower looked & the water pressure was awesome. For us it was great having a microwave & a fridge in the room as we did not eat out that much. The breakfast was great but the room was extremely packed each morning which is understandable when you have a hotel filled with guest. The staff worked hard to keep the food stocked & hot. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. On our last day/night the internet stopped working & never started back but that was no biggie. Also I made our reservations with a debit card & was charged $63 more than I was supposed to be. I called the front desk & was told because I made the reservation with a debit card my bank put a hold on those funds plus the price of the room. When in actuality upon check out after mentioning it to the front desk attendant she told me the room rate was entered incorrectly so that's why we were charged more. So she was able to get that corrected & we were on our way. We enjoyed the HIE, & we cant wait to stay there again!!

We arrived at hie later than we expected, about 2am. We were checked in quickly and we're able to get in room and rest. Breakfast was great and kitchen workers were extremely polite and helpful even though they were very busy. Room was nice and clean. Checkout was quick. Love staying here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 33LC33 Great location
The room layout was a little bit awkward. Could not watch TV from the chairs, only from bed. Had to climb over someone sitting in chair to get to frig. Coffee pot on top shelf, which made it hard for a short person to see to put water in. These, in total, were farily small complaints. Heating/cooling system excellent. Bed absolutely wonderful. Not enought seating in breakefast room for morning rush! Like location very much.

I reviewed previous comments from customers and agree with the majority that the rooms are not at HI standards. Your reply to a customer on Oct 3, 2013 stated that you usually perform room upgrades during the winter. I would highly recommend that you replace all mattresses soon. Our first night there in room 518 the mattress was very worn and I could not sleep all night. The next morning we changed rooms to 521 and sorry, but it was just as bad.
We like the hotel location being off of the strip but any future Branson visits we will check out your competitors for a place to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gena57 Good Service
We arrived at the Hotel at 3:00 only to be told they had been full the night before and our room was not ready. I said Ok we will be back later, they suggested 30 minutes. We arrived back in around 45 to 50 minutes only to be told it still was not ready. We waited until around 4:40 before it was ready. The room was fine except when we flipped over the blanket at the end of the bed it was obviously soiled. We immediately called housekeeping and they brought a clean one for both beds. The beds were another story. They were the hardest mattresses I have ever tied to sleep on. Extremely firm, so much so, I was actually sore from trying to sleep on it. I must say the staff was very polite and helpful. Breakfast was good and they did discount our rate some due to the delay in checking in. We really appreciated that. Not sure the hotel was worth the rate charged.

Everything at this property was great, except I could not get connected to the internet. So I had to use the only connection available which was in the lobby, on the public computer, and that printer was operating.

This is a dated hotel that has somehow been awarded a Holiday Inn Express franchise. Yes, the lobby has been remolded. However, there is no "business center" but rather 1 computer at a desk in the lobby. Twice when I wanted to get on-line kids were playing on the 1 computer. The room and bath were simply too small and not up to HI Express standards as I think of them. Breakfast is held in a room that is way too small for a hotel with 120 guest rooms.
This experience has taught me that I cannot depend upon the Holiday Inn Express label. I have learned I need to ask questions before I make any future reservation at a Holiday Inn Express!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UnhapppyPriorityClubMembe Worst experience ever at a Holiday property
First of all our room was not ready at check- in time. We were not recognized as being Priority Club members and did not receive a welcome gift as at other Holidays. Upon arriving in our room it was hot and we could not get the air conditioner to work properly. I called the desk and they told me to turn it on and off 3 times and leave it off for 30 minutes and try it again. That sounded strange to me but I tried it and nothing changed. I went to the desk to complain and was told a maintenance man would check it and he never showed. We were there for two night and our sleep was miserable because it did not work. The staff people that I talked to seemed unconcerned. Our room was not serviced by the maid until after 4:00p.m. She was probably hot too. When we went down for the so called free breakfast there was no place to sit with other people just wondering around looking for a place too. My wife and I went to a restaurant for breakfast both mornings. It is obvious the restaurant area is not large enough for this hotel. So much for a free breakfast!! Upon checkout I filled out the comment card in the room and turned it in at the front desk. It stated right on the front of the card your stay should be satisfactory or if the staff couldn't resolve your problem you would not be charged for you stay. Nothing was said about that when I handed it to the person at the desk. No apology. No refund. No nothing. My wife and I are gold club members and have stayed at Holidays all over the country. It is our hotel of choice but this was absolutely our worst experience ever and we will never stay here again and we go to Branson usually 3 to 4 times a year. I would be interested in your response to these comments. I am not asking for our money back but at least an I'm sorry would be nice.

We had our family reunion in Branson this year.
I had never been to Branson before and found it to be a wonderful family experience.
The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel lobby is beautiful. Breakfast was great and the breakfast hostess was one of the best I have ever met.
The only negative was the rooms. My room was not swept and the air conditioner was loud and room smelled musty.
Other than that it was a great stay. The people in Branson are the friendliest people around!

We loved this location as it was so comfortable and friendly. The staff went over board in helping me with my room reservations. Thank you staff.
The room was in perfect condition and was clean and peaceful. I was completely satisfied with my stay at this location. The location was clean and the staff friendly.
The pool was great and the Jacuzzi was working made it even better.
I was concerned with the location being off 76 main drag but not a problem
Thank you to all the staff for a relaxing time. high 5's

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IL2013 Great Hotel!
This was a great stay for us. We have been by this hotel several times, but never stayed - so glad we did this time. I would stay there again on our next visit. The only suggestion I have is the lighting by the single basin - it needs to be brighter. The bathroom light is great, but if you need to use the extra mirror for makeup, etc, it's hard to see. The beds were comfortable & everything was clean. The staff was very friendly. Great pool area & plenty of parking & grounds were well kept. Breakfast was good & there was a variety - Juice was good & not watered down. Just a nice place to stay!

I stay here almost always when in Branson,for many years. Young lady at front desk ( wish I could remember her name) dark hair was wonderful. Lady in ticket shop was good. The breakfast lady was great. Our housekeeper was very good. My only negative comments are that the rooms are beginning to look a little worn,(lobby is beautiful). And maybe Iam just a grouch,but don't remember all the singers comming in while we were trying to eat breakfast.That was kinda annoying. But I will stay again,have reservations in Dec.

We enjoyed our stay in Branson by staying at the Holiday Inn Express. Everyone is friendly and ready to serve in any way they possible can.
The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast room was great serving good food and plenty of it.
We will return again many times as it's the place to stay in Branson!

A large room with a sofa, chair with a foot rest, jacuzzi, and a very comfortable king size bed. The only benefit missing was the lack of handicap equipment in the bathroom. The service was A-1, a friendly staff who were quick to smile. We will stay here the next time we visit this area.

We usually come to Branson 2x a year & stay here!! Everyone is SO friendly & helpful. They serve a nice variety of food for breakfast. We like the location not far from our favorite shows & shops;) The ONLY thing I would say they need to upgrade is their carpet.

The young lady who greeted us at the front desk is a definite asset to the Holiday Inn Express family. We have been switching from Holiday Inn Express to another chain, and HIE will be our first choice from now on. We love Branson, and recommend this as a definite place to stay. Great breakfast also.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Niki55 Not coming back
upon our arrival the first thing we noticed was the carpeting in our room was beyond filthy. my husband and I were unable to remove our shoes in the room. I politely pointed out to the service desk after our arrival about our problem. she responded, I am sorry, I will make a note of it. there was no offer to change our room. on leaving the facility one time I was able to look into another room that was being cleaned only to find their carpet was as nasty as ours.
the overall cleanliness of the room was ok, but it was very uncomfortable to have to place your shoes by the bathroom door to slide into after your shower. I saw that the hotel parking lot was pretty full when we left so I assume cleanliness is not a issue with some people. if it is , then I would NOT recommend this hotel. couldn't use the iron either, it was black on the bottom so, I went wrinkled.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mofan1 Another Fantastic Stay in Branson!
My two sons and I always try to stay at least once in Branson a year. This was our end of summer trip and it started as almost a catastrophe before we even left to get to Branson. Apparently I made the original reservations for the wrong weekend and only for one day. I didn't realize it till I got the survey email from IHG and was shocked. I checked my bank account and I had been charged for the night as per the hotel's policy. I called and spoke with a lady there and she said the day guy handles that and she took my info and told me theyd call me back. I didn't want to wait so later that day I called back and found out that they had credited the charge to the reservation that I had made once I figured out what a goof I was. So I only ended up paying for one night instead of an extra one. Great Job HI Express. The room and amenities were great as usual. The Wifi was a little spotty on the 5th floor but that wasn't that big of a deal. Definitely will be staying here on future trips to Branson.
