Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EV5120 away with the family
We went away with the family to see friends and family. The room was clean except for the bathroom in the tub area. There was still stuff on the tub walls. One day they cleaned and took the towels and washcloths but never replaced them. they emptied the garbage in the room and did not replace the bag. Parking is good only if you get there early if you are out after 9 plan on not being close to the building. They have enough parking but they have the workers that are staying there for the extended stay park where ever they want with the company trucks. If they are there that long they should park farther away and let the other guests be close to the building.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GolfCoachscott Great Staff and Clean Room
The gentleman at the front desk was very nice. There was a little confusion with my reservation because of the spelling of my last name is different. He took good care of me while checking in and very helpful in helping us find a great dinner. Everyone was very nice and spoke when entering and leaving the hotel. Nice touch in this day of terrible customer service. The room was very clean which is a must!! Thanks for a great stay. Will be back in April

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pattitude2010 Friendly staff / clean rooms
Very spacious and clean rooms. Polite and courteous staff. Friendly, welcoming lobby area. The exercise equipment was in good working order and the fitness room was clean.
Good variety of food options for breakfast, but my husband was disappointed that all of the pre-made omelettes included cheese and he prefers his omelette without cheese.
The pillows were our least favorite part of the accessories.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rowanontheroad unexpected retreat!
I had a wonderful stay! The staff were friendly and helpful with some of my business needs and from the moment I walked in, I felt safe and well taken care of. My room was incredibly comfortable, clean, quiet, cool and the upgrade to a suite was incredibly kind. I was traveling for business, but it felt like a retreat! The bed was beyond comfortable, the water pressure was perfect, it was in a quiet location where the birds woke up with me, instead of the sounds of traffic. I was quite impressed and my loyalty to Holiday Inn has been restored after a bad experience at another location. This place was great. I enjoyed a hot tea by the pool in the evening under a Southern Summer sky, thunder rumbling in the distance. Great hotel.

I've stayed at this location on a number of occasions, and the service at the front desk has been exceptional every time. They go out of their way to accommodate me when I arrive, and the room is exceptionally clean and comfortable,

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ROBPIP43 A nice stay, but...
My 5 day stay wasn't bad but it could've been easily improved upon with a little better customer service. First, I needed to print a document but they were out of printer ink. I told them on my first day there and on two succeeding days. It was always "someone else" who had to fix it but "someone else" never showed up. Similar thing with the internet service. On 2 occasions the service was out but the front desk told me that since their front desk computers were connected, there wasn't a problem (most reputable hotels do not place their front desk computer systems on the guest wireless network for security reasons). The simple fix was a restart/reboot of the router but I believe the staff was new and didn't know how to do it. After other customer complaints about no internet service, they finally contacted someone who told them how to restart the router and that fixed the problem. Also during my stay, the 2nd floor hallways were very hot and the laundry room was steamy hot, with no ventilation. Finally, the toilet lever broke on the inside of the toilet and I advised the maid and the front desk on day 3 of my stay. It was never fixed during my stay and I told them when I checked out. I want to stress that the folks working there are nice and pleasant to talk to. The breakfast staff and room maids are great. The hotel and grounds look good. But it's those little annoying things, that should've easily been fixed right away, that make for a less than desirable stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MAG1 HI Express is always my first choice!
Hotel was easy to get to from I40 but far enough away that you did not hear the noise. Plenty of places to eat and shop nearby. The customer service was outstanding and staff extremely friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. I will be staying again on my next visit!

I grew up here and come back to visit friends and family a couple times a year. This is the only place my family will stay. We get the 2 room suite and it's very spacious for the four of us. Great beds, plenty of room, near Hickory without the Hickory traffic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Old Soilders Reuni. visit Exellent stay but a little expensive
Excellent cleanliness, courteous and polite staff, very good breakfast. Room had a slow shower drain which was fixed when brought to the staffs attention. Convenient location. The only gripe is it is a little expensive.
I do not quite understand the pricing in this supposedly weak economic area (much talk about closed textile and furniture factories.)
There are cheaper hotels in the area, but they were at poorer locations for our needs and in poorer condition with less attentive staff and not very neat or clean.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by wmericl Noisy room next to the elevator!!!!
This hotel looks great... nice grounds and very up to date. Greeted by a front desk clerk with friends hanging around talking to her... Toilet ran almost constantly... door lock didn't work properly... Lock would open fine, but would not allow you to close it without pushing in the bottom of the lock on the side of the door... In addition if they offer you room 218... be prepared... it is next to the elevator room... It is noisy... so you will not rest... Hotel could be awesome if the staff was more concerned with the guests...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Texan grandma unusual check-in
Nikki was working the front desk on a very rainy Friday afternoon about 1 1/2 hours before check-in time. I asked if we could check-in early. She said that we could, but that we might have a little wait because of an unusual circumstance. A youth sports team had checked out, been informed that their game was cancelled, and needed to check back in. The housekeeping staff was scrambling to get all of those fine youth, parents, and coaches back into rooms. She and the housekeeping supervisor (who came to the desk while I was standing there) were just as polite to each other as they were to me. They still got our party into both rooms before regular check-in time. Thanks, ladies.
