Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MattfromLA Surprisingly Nice
I was quite leery of staying at a Holiday Inn Express. I'll admit I can be a bit prissy when it comes to where to stay. And I must say it was a surprisingly nice experience. Clean room with lots of smaller amenities. Great value. A far cry from the holiday inn's from the day's of yore. I would absolutely stay there again.

overall we had excellent experience,
just didn't understand why we should pay extra 20$ for a bed that was already there....

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DanT2013 Unacceptable bathroom fan noise
In Room 141 when we turned on the bathroom light the fan made a terrible grating noise. The loudness of this noise was exceeded only by the screeching when the light and fan were turned off. Unacceptable for the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricL Convenient and quiet.
This was a very comfortable hotel and so easy to get to. I look forward to staying here again.
I wish they had some weight equipment at this location. The only exercise equipment was a couple of treadmills.
The fridge froze everything I bought at the store (veggies, yogurt, beer). There was no way to turn it down so I unplugged it.
I think the Holiday Inn needs to improve on breakfast selection as there is always only an alternate between scrambled eggs and an egg and "cheese" omlette. Also, their coffee leaves much to be desired.
