Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ITravelforwork Travel for work.
I travel at least monthly for work, sometimes several times a month. I often stay in a room priced lower than this room and while cheep for MANY people, the rate was more than I spend. The bed was very stiff by my standards, and caused me to be very sore the following morning. The room was very clean. I had to check in VERY early and they were cleaning the rooms from the night before. This was above and beyond as they were at max capacity the night before with the race day weekend.
My overall experience was good, however, I almost left to find another option in the area. I did not like the price and the person checking me in was VERY rude. I offered my debit card for payment and was asked 3 times if I had a credit card. In addition I was asked 2 times if I had enough balance to pay for the room and still have enough on the card to run a check on it. I was traveling for work and paying out of my own account, and I do not use my credit card as often as other people. I am not however a bum, un-employed, or broke. I did not represent myself that way and did not enjoy being treated that way either. For the price there are several other hotels in the area that must compare and lack the rude treatment I received.
The room also had no curtain to cover the window, while not an issue for me, my wife would have refused to sleep in a room like this. The curtain was light see thru material, and did not have a privacy curtain to pull close.

As a member of Holiday Inn Priority Club it has always been a pleasurable stay with Holiday Inn properties. Rarely do I experience anything negative. Holiday Inn remains one of the most consistent and accommodating hotel chains. Holiday Inn Express gives a great balance between cost and quality of stay. Well done.

Staff great, friendly and helpful. Food choices great and good quality. Room clean, smells fresh, large good amenities and great bed for sleeping. Staff went out of their way to help find dinner. Check out easy. Coffee of good quality in room. A/C cooled room down quickly. We will stay here again when traveling. Great experience all the way around. Good parking for pulling a trailer also. Easy access to interstate.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GlenAR Good Staff and Service
Staff and Services were very hospitable and helpful. The staff eased our family stressful experience with their kindness. The common area provided a very comforting atmosphere. However, the beds weren't at the IHG comfort level we've experienced in our travels.

We cannot say enough to adequately express our appreciation to the Staff for their professional, courteous and friendly service. They made us feel right at home. The room was well appointed and comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was fantastic! We rate the Bryant Holiday Inn Express 5 Stars all around and we will be back to stay with you. We highly recommend this property to all our friends and family. Thank you!

It was a great location. Traveling with a very loaded car, the parking lot was light and secured and we felt that the car was safe. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and we
will definately come back.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Therevdrmom Not up to HIE standards
This inn looks, smells, and feels like a Lesser Inn rebranded. While the staff was Great, the room had old and soiled carpet, a crudely patched ceiling, and a very dated bathroom. The bed was the worst I've slept on with a cheap mattress and a flimsy mattress protector the wrinkled and rolled under me all night long.
As a Choice Member who stays in HIE exclusively, I feel this was not worth my money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 On our "We Like" list.
Reared in Litle Rock, married to a Tennessee wife,we for a number of years haved lived in Texas. Thus, traveling to Tennessee in business, and that my lady might visit relatives and friends, this motel is well located for a restful overnight break in the journey. We have often chosen this break-point - friendly greeting upon arrival, reservation handled accurately, room always clean, quiet and inviting, breakfast area clean and well arranged, menu about average (compared to my wife's gifted culinary skills!). The Bryant Holiday Express has served us well for a number of years, and we likely will return, God willing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by trucker86 You almost get what you pay for...
Front desk night manager is not overly friendly, not mean, just indifferent. 2 1/2 hour window for breakfast (even on weekends) is shortest in business. Rooms are not set up for business travelers - no outlets in convenient places, ACs kinda suck, Wi-Fi is intermittent, no hotel directory in the rooms, remote control was dirty, HBO guide was for previous month, fridge is nice, but cheap w/o microwave... no priority membership perks or recognizing or even getting the room to a comfortable temperature in the dead of the summer heat. Beds are nice, clean, but everything else is dated, stained, or gross. Coffee is terrible, way too much styrofoam use and no recycling options. Little things are being ignored. Definitely not the best or even good HIE. Would not pay more than $75.- and thankfully, didn't. Daytime clerk was clueless.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LisR disatisfied with staff
We recently stayed at the Bryant Holiday Inn Express. We stay often at Holiday Inn's and have been very satisfied in the past. I was not satisfied with the front staff during this stay. I get to my destination and he will not give me the government rate. I have never had problems getting the government rate before. He told me I should have been informed of that when I made the reservation and kept referring to the website. I made the reservation by calling the hotel directly and not the 800 holiday inn reservation numbers or by website. I was not told I couldn't get the government rate. I also couldn't check the website he was referring to because I was standing in front of him and I didn't make the reservation via web. I will not stay here again due to customer service. Everything else was as expected.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dan38 Older property, needs remodeling
We were assured that new beds and other remodels are coming. Current status not up to HIE standards; my guess is that it either will leave the chain or will receive a major overhaul.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by michaeld101 Nice place
Last minute find in the middle of a long road trip. Staff very friendly and got me a great rate compared to the other hotels around it. Only problem I had and was nothing to do with the hotel itself but its in a dry county so if you want any kind of beer you have to go to the next county. It was only a 5 mile drive but still a little inconvenient.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by headachestill Big Room, comfy chair, terrible bed
I walked into the room and was pleasantly surprised. It was large and the king size bed looked inviting. It was early evening, so I dressed and went out for supper, which is conveniently located across the street. When I came back, I bathed and went to bed. The bed was so hard that I had to fold up the duvet just for some padding. Finally, at 3:15, I sat up in the chair and tried to sleep there. There was a pad on the bed that had a plastic inside. I haven't slept on a urine pad since I was four. It was a terrible night. I left, even though I had two more nights that I had reserved. I went to another hotel, but I did check the bed first. On the other hand, David was nice and the breakfast was yummy! And, you can't go wrong with Bath and Body Works shampoo! Nice choice!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by notimpressedthissiteis Housekeeping left my door open after cleaning
Housekeeping left my door open after cleaning. I was gone for the whole day with my door open. Good thing I took all valuables with me, because the staff is not competent enough to simply close a door. The uninterested manager came up to the room to test the doors as if I was ignorant.. He said sorry and left.
I am a platinum whatever member, but treated as if this was no big deal.
Now looking to patronize another chain. I spend approx. 100 nights a year in hotels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by magnoliajill Great location and staff
The only reason I am not really liking this particular Holiday Inn Express is that there is no business center and no gym facilities.
For me this was a little inconvenient. Otherwise the rooms are clean and the staff is nice. The location is awesome. Very close to nice restaurants and shopping.

The room smelled extremely mosty. For the rest (service, bed clean, confortable) all good. But I will never stay again in this one because of the musty smell. I can't just not stand musty smell, it make me feel like everything is dirty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unable Comfortable room, not so good breakfast experience
We have stayed at this location many times and have always been very pleased. Except for our breakfast experience this stay was no exception.
At the breakfast facility, the usual selections were not kept well stocked, so we skipped the breakfast and ate at the Cracker Barrel across the street.

I am from California - there was a Tornado Warning - I didn't know what to do or where to go. I believe that it would be AWESOME customer service to have that information readily available - or a notice to the rooms for out of state visitors.
Outside of the emergency weather matter - my stay was comfortable. Thank You

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ElizaJewell65550 Need renovation
This hotel is in need of renovation or not be a Holiday Inn. Our room was damp, beds linens and carpet felt wet. Smelled musty. Bathroom was not as clean as expected. Tile dirty and paint peeling. Mattress lumpy. Staff were all very nice and friendly. Breakfast as expected. Our previous nights were at a top of the line Staybridge Suite. I know HIExpress can't compare to Staybridge, but should be up to the standard for Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ethan90 Great Coustomer Service and Good Breakfast
We enjoyed our stay at your Holiday Inn Express in Bryant, Arkansas. We booked our room with your hotel on the phone right before arrival on the 20th and enjoyed a warm reception by Cynthia.
Cynthia was handling multiple bookings at the time and accidentally put us in a room with one queen instead of two. When we were returned to the desk, Cynthia was quick to apologize and was sincere. She took it upon herself to upgrade us to a large room at no charge.
This kind of customer service doesn't happen often. Cynthia is one to hold onto. She has made a loyal customer of us if we ever stay near Little Rock.
Additionally, breakfast was delicious and hot!
Thanks for your great service!

This hotel is showing its age. The rooms have a musty smell and you can tell its been a while since the place was updated. Staff were non-attentive. Breakfast was also so suspect.
