Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJP1 Excellent Stay
Only stayed for one night on trip to West Point. Next time may stay here again. Not too far away (20 mins) and the price was not overly expensive. Room was excellent - not sure how long it has been open, but it had the feel/smell of a new hotel. Since we were there only one night, not sure what else there is to do in the area.

I was on the ground floor and there are only net curtains which means no privacy and the lights from the car park make it difficult to sleep.
Dirty plates and coffee cups were not removed by Housekeeping and there was absolutely no recognition of IHG Rewards.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jacob22 Wrapping up on upgrades
Great location for my business travels.
Hotel was wrapping up carpet replacements and refurnishing their breakfast room, but it did not great any discomfort on my end.
Any hotel that works on upgrades to make it better for their guests is a good thing. I highly recommend this location for price and convenience. it is competitive for what you can get in NY region.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by patty66 Friendly staff. Clean room.
First time staying in the area. Location was great-near resturants and shopping. Front desk staff very friendly. Check-in was quick. Room was clean. AC worked fine. Bed comfortable. Only things missing were a fridge & microwave. Would stay here again.

I'm happy the hotel is remodeling.
It's well needed. Looks much better.
I do not care for walking out the side door
and being hit by the staffs smoking break.
It's very annoying.
The staff needs an area for themselves
out of the guests view and out of the smoke.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pw666 pleasantly surprised
I had never stayed in a Holiday Inn Express before and I was quite surprised and pleased. The room was nice and large and clean and comfortable. The price was right as well. The establishment is undergoing a makeover and while there is adequate signage they really do need to do a better job of cleaning up each night before resuming work in the morning. Simple things like clean carpets in the hallways and elevators would be a worthwhile endeavor.
Nice stay and I will definitely be back through there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Surprisingly Good!
I stay at hotels around the world and always look for comfort and proximity to meeting locations when searching. This Holiday Inn Express was new, so there is not much to say that is negative. I found the hotel to be immaculately clean and visually appealing from a design standpoint. The amenities were fine, not top shelf, but mid-level. For the price, amenities, and courteous staff, I will stay at this location again!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by amanda244 staff breaks
The staff takes breaks right outside the exit doors. This is where they smoke. Its very unpleasant to walk into that, and to see that.
There should be a break area for the staff out of sight of the customer.

The room is very clean and spacious, staff are friendly. My family enjoyed it. Only con point is the side we lived in is facing the highway, the window is not noise proof in the night.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Prodigyzer0 Fix this place up!
I stay at this location monthly. It is the only viable option for where I am doing business. Months ago I reviewed this location and rated the amenities as poor due to the lack of proper function in the fitness center. Review response from hotel was that they "fixed it", not true, went to work out today and the treadmill didn't work, the elliptical machine did not work properly, the bikes had resistance settings that were delayed.
The room's AC was either cold or off.
There were hairs stuck to the walls of the shower.
For the "Executive Room" the so called desk had limited power outlets (only under the desk), the clock was not set properly, an hour off.
I stood at the front desk for a solid 5 minutes with no sign of staff.
As a Platinum member I didn't get my "goodie bag" and my reservation wasn't ready, had to wait for the slow clerk (first time dealing with him) to print my check in paperwork.
The 2nd floor vending machine did not work, at all, and did not have an out of order sign on it.
Very unhappy with this visit. But am forced to stay here due to it's location.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ginger41 Uncomfortable. Mattress pad was not secure.
We felt that the Motel was overpriced. The mattress pad came off under us and we ended up sleeping on the mattress. Ther was no ice machine. Breakfaast bar was sparse. We were missled as to the distance from I-84, we were told it was only 2 miles. Compared to other Holiday Inn Express Hotels this was our most expensive and worst experience.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TLC15 Won't stay here again
The room was large enough to spread out, but the floor in the bathroom was uneven and the grout was coming out between the tiles and the carpet looked dirty. We also had very little water pressure for the shower and 2 of the 3 mornings, we did not have hot water for showers. The general condition of the room was disappointing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NYer34 The hallway smelled and so did one of two rooms
The front desk folks were inconsistent at best. Calls to confirm reservations yielded mixed results, the rooms were wrong, and they initially refused to give a key to the second room that was already checked in. Some of the front desk workers were terrific but others were woefully inadequate. The hall to the rooms smelled, and one of the two rooms smelled terrible.

The room was very roomy with 4 adults. Beds and linens were comfortable and everything was nicely clean. Bathroom was exceptional. Nice tub and shower. Would certainly stay again while visiting family in the Chester area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mbhiker Sorry to bother you
Desk staff seemed like we were interrupting them when we checked in - even though they didn't have the type of room we had requested. Then the message light wouldn't go off - when we called, Yeah we know it is on all the time. I'm sorry.....
Room had tears in wall paper inside and outside the room. Property definately in need of some help.
Definately at the bottom of HI-Express we have used.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Smokeresistant Smoky Room
We reserved a non-smoking room. The room was very smoky. The front desk indicated that there were no other rooms. They deducted $20. We were still very unhappy, and we would gladly have paid $20 more for the non-smoking room promised to us. We would never stay again, and we will not avoid Holiday Inn. When asked about franchise standards, the front desk said that they are not bound by any standards because the hotel is independently owned and operated.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Carol11 Cold showers / noisy room
We are loyal to the Holiday Inn Express facilities and hope to continue with that loyalty, however, we were very disappointed with our last visit to the Chester facility. Our room was in the back of the building with extensive traffic noise from Route 17 (next time I will be sure to ask for front of building). Our shower failed to offer hot/warm water during our entire stay. The staff was attentive to our complaint, however, not successful in fixing. As an IHG member, we were a bit disappointed in our entire visit. But I do understand the hotel was booked; a very busy time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yaco2 attentive personnel
My room for this hotel was booked for 2 nights, and unfortunately for me the way my company books rooms for business travel is that whoever is the "supervisor" books the rooms with their IHG (priority club) account which makes things very complex for the person (s) occupying the rooms to attach their own priority club account to the room to receive the credit for the say as they should (we are working just as much if not more than the person booking the rooms). I must say that Bret one of the front desk agents at this property was very accommodating to me and my request to attach my priority club account to this room by means of creating a share to the room and therefore routing all the charges to my portion of the share enabling me to receive the full credit to my account for the entire stay of the room that I occupied. Bret although he was not aware of how to perform this change in the system he was wiling to accept my assistance and walk him through this unusual process of creating a share. I commend Bret greatly in accommodating the guest as opposed to taking the easy way out and saying "well I can not change it there is already a Priority Club number on there" which many MANY IHG employees claim when asked to do such task. As a former IHG employee I greatly appreciate his efforts and give much praise to how he handled a very unfamiliar situation. Great job Bret. General Manager hold on to this guy as he is a very valuable asset to you.Thanks again for your exceptional attention Bret.

Excellent place to stay. Great service at check in and check out, cheerfully greeted every time we passed the front desk (Brett) and excellent breakfast the next morning. We have stayed at this property several times over the past year and hope to stay again in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great Hotel
My fiance and I stayed at this hotel two weeks ago when we needed to get away from the city for a weekend. We had no idea what was up there we just went. The people at the desk told us to go to the Castle and we had the toime of our lives for the whole day and spent $45!! In the city you spend $45 just while your waiting to do something lol....so right away we were happy. The hotel was very clean, very nice people. The pool had way too much chlorine but I guess thats what a hotel pool needs cause lets face it people can be gross. SO thats not their fault. The next day there they told us go to Brotherhood winery so we did and we loved it. Bought a boat load of wine to bring home. So all in all it was a great stay. And I might add the breakfast is really good. Im not a breakfast guy usually but I woke up early to swim and the pool wasnt open yet so I decided to grab a bite and I had 2 plates :)
We will be going back.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bobl61 Nice room and breakfast. Did not know they allowed pets.
The staff was friendly. The room was decent, and the breakfast was excellent. One thing I did not know was they apparently allow pets in the hotel. Dogs barking until 1 AM, then starting again at 7:30 AM. Guests slamming doors until 1 AM. I'm lucky if I got a few hours sleep. Unfortunately due to the dogs, and lack of consideration from the other guests, I cannot recommend this hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by maim Non smoking room?
reserved a nonsmoking room. could clearly smell smoke in room upon arrival. Called front desk, room was sprayed when we stepped out, upon return could still faintly smell smoke, ashes on far bedspread and cigarette butt in toilet.(hadn't previously been in bathroom) Room appeared clean so who smoked there and left their cigarette butt behind? Either the bathroom wasn't totally cleaned or someone with a key had a smoke. then requested a late check out in the am and was allowed a whole 30 minutes extra, not sure if I would stay again?

Gina at the front desk was excellent. She not only gave us a quiet floor away from the softball teams, she told us about a local trail that was beautiful for a walk.
