Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Front desk was especially helpful.
I was very impressed with the friendliness of all of the staff. They went to extra lengths when I requested a safety pin.

I've never met a friendlier hotel staff. There's no feigned "it's my job to be nice to you." They are genuinely happy to see you and they are pleasant people. I didn't see any air fresheners but somehow my room smelled like chocolate every day which was pleasant to come back to after a long day at work. I will continue to stay here every time I am in town.

The rooms were very nice and clean; sufficient towels and items of comfort, e.g., internet, breakful. There were other items we did not get an opportunity to us like the spa, pool and exercise equipment.
The hotel staff were exceptional-extremely helpful to me with a group. Two ladies Jessica and Dawn were outstanding. I would visit and recommend others to this Holiday Inn Express.

THanks to Dawn for welcoming us and upgrading us to a larger room due to our length of stay.
There were a lot of things broken in the hotel - elevator at one time, printer in business room, ice machine on first floor.
Too few outlets in the rooms - esp based on the number of technology items people have now.
Internet was very slow but we were able to always to connect.
It seems the hotel should buy MORE towels. We never got a full set of towels upon room cleaning - they had to wash some after cleaning the rooms and collecting them. Also, the soap dish is a bowl which just captures water and makes the soap mushy. It should be flat or drain the water so the soap remains fairly dry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by edible Quiet stay
Even though the hotel was full during our stay, the room was very quiet. No noises were heard through the walls or from the hallway, and that's a big deal to me. The air conditioning worked great and the beds were comfortable. The staff was pleasant as well. My biggest complaint was the bathroom sink fixtures; they looked nice, but the water only trickled out. The only other issues were probably due to the high occupancy: fairly slow wi-fi at times, the lateness of the maid service on one of the days, and a delay in stocking breakfast items on a particularly busy morning. These were only minor inconveniences and I would definitely stay here again.

I had a wonderful stay this last time I visited this hotel. When I checked in, I was informed I'd been upgraded to a jacuzzi suite. Sweet! It was nice to receive this perk, as I often stay at this hotel when I'm on business in that part of Dallas.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cindy32 A MUST READ! REASON TO LATCH YOUR HOTEL DOOR!
I made reservations through IHG on March 31, 2014 to stay at Holiday Inn Express in Desoto with checking in on April 4th and checking out on April 6th. After getting additional information concerning a tournament we were attending for my daughter, I only needed one night. So, on Wednesday, April 2nd, I called the IHG Reservation Desk to make the change to check in on April 5th and check out on April 6th. The receptionist immediately cancelled my reservation. He could not rebook a room for the night I wanted because the hotel was all booked up. Realizing that, I contacted the hotel directly while still on hold with the receptionist from IHG. I knew that the room that I had booked had to be still available because no additional reservations could be made online, and he had just cancelled them.
The hotel receptionist on duty was unable to assist me but took my information. Thursday morning, April 3rd, Joseph, from Holiday Inn Express returned my call. I explained the situation to him and he proceeded to reserve me another room, but at $40 more for the night. I did not understand since I never ask the rep at IHG Reservation Desk to cancel my reservation, but to modify them, that I should pay more than my original charge. So he transferred me to a manager who told me that although the mishap was not my fault, that it was not theirs either and she had no way of overriding the system to change the amount. She did apologize though.
Since many hotels in the area were booked because of sports events taking place that weekend in the Desoto area, I booked the room for the higher amount for April 5th. After reserving the room, Joseph took my e-mail address and told me that he would be e-mailing me a confirmation number. All day Thursday, I did not receive that e-mail. So Thursday night, I called the hotel, gave my name to the receptionist, and was given a confirmation number of 68116935.
We arrived at the hotel about 4pm on Saturday, April 5th. I gave the receptionist on duty, Linda, my name and she checked us into a room on the third floor (room # purposefully not listed). When we got to the room, we quickly realized by the opened suitcase on the coffee table, and the IPad and vehicle key on the desk that the room was already occupied. This had NEVER happened to us before. We felt very uncomfortable in someone else's room. So, of course, we got out of there immediately. You can imagine how badly this could have gone if the guests were in the room at the time during what hotel guests do.
We go back to see Linda and she basically says "that's not good," and checks us into room 219. No one's personal items are in the room when we got there, but we had reserved a room with two queen beds and this room had one king bed. I called Linda from the room and informed her of this. She told me that was the room I had reserved. I asked her for the confirmation number she was showing. She read off 61422658, which was not the one I was given in advance. I informed her of that and she paused, and said there are no more available rooms.
A little later I went down to the receptionist desk to speak with a manager. Linda told me that Joseph would be in the next morning.
The next morning when checking out I spoke with Joseph. As with Linda, he was apologetic but could do nothing to remedy or recompense the situation. So he told that he would mention it to a manager, who would be contacting me. As of today, April 21st, I have not heard from anyone. I even completed another rating that was e-mailed to me.

I have always enjoyed the comfort of the Holiday Inn Express Chain. I love the décor and comfort of their rooms. I love the cinnamon rolls and pancakes at their breakfast buffets. I have to give special recognition to the staff at this location...they surpass all the other HIE hotels I've stayed in so far...and that's quite a few. I especially wanted to mention Joseph at the front desk who is genuinely courteous and kind...a step above professional. Thanks HIE!

The front desk clerk was very friendly, you walk through the doors and they greeted you with a hello and a smile. Rooms clean, bathroom stocked with plenty of towels. The beds were clean, smelled very fresh, and were very comfortable. Not your ordinary continental breakfast, loved the variety we had to choose from. Didn't have to go somewhere else to eat. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Requested early check in and late check out. They were happy to accommodate me and my requests. We called when we arrived in the area to ask when our rooms would he ready, they asked how long it would take us to get to their location and said the three rooms would be ready when we got there. The only issue we had was the water temperature in the bath/shower area. One of our three rooms had no hot water, the other two rooms had warm enough water to have a comfortable shower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carolinagirl01 BEST STAFF and STAY EVER
I had the pleasure of staying at the Holiday Inn Dallas South-Desoto recently during a business trip. Upon my arrival, There was some confusion regarding my reservation but Dawn, the manager, was quick to resolve the issue with a welcoming smile. As the details were being worked out, we discussed some must see things to do during my visit.. She made me feel right at home. It is obvious that she loves her job and she takes great pride in her work.
The hotel room was clean and spacious, although I must admit, I went straight to bed, after traveling most of the day. The bed was very comfortable and I was able to go right to sleep, great pillows. The breakfast was delicious and the blueberry muffins were my favorite. The room was nice and my only regret was that I couldn't stay longer. Next time I am in the area, I will return to this hotel and I would recommend anyone consider staying here.
