We stayed here on a rather short notice trip/room request. Upon intitially talking with someone at the front desk, she was very honest in disclaiming that they were in the middle of remodeling/updating the rooms/building. well that didnt deter us from staying there and we were quite impressed with the way the new rooms were set up, very very eligant, comfortable feeling from the new "fresh" environment. We will definitely be staying there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DebbieKS Nice hotel but front desk staff needs improvement
This hotel was being remodeled when I stayed there, but they apparently blocked off the areas where they were working so it didn't cause much of a disruption. My room had been completed, and it was very nice. The bed was very comfortable, with nice linens and pillows. The room was very cool and comfortable on a hot summer day. The breakfast was better than most free hotel breakfasts, with turkey sausage, ham, omelettes, pancakes, muffins, cinnamon rolls, bagels, toast, dry cereal, fresh fruit, oatmeal, yogurt, coffee, milk, tea, hot chocolate and 3 kinds of juice.
The only problem I had was with the front desk clerk the evening I arrived. He was asleep in the little room next to the front desk and I had to wake him up. This was at about 7:30 pm. He forgot to swipe my key, so it didn't work and I had to drag my bell cart back downstairs to get him to swipe it. However, I would stay there again if the opportunity arose.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by best room great staff
The Hotel is under going a remodle. The comon areas should be cleaned more often. The Carpets were full of drywall dust up and down the hall way. Also, on more than one occasion there were beer cans and beer bottles left mixed in with the construction materials, giving the impression that the construction workers were drinking. The scale in the workout room only goes to 160 lbs. Not quit enough for me!!! LOL Also, last but not least, I noticed the hot tub had been filled in. Are there any plans with the remodle to put it back in???? the hottub is a nice thing to have after a long drive.
The staff was amazing....
THX Barbara and staff for everything!!!

This is the third time i have stayed at this location in the last 2 weeks. The desk staff were better trained at this stay and it was all around a better stay. The hotel is being remodeled/spiffed up and some areas have some construction evidence. I believe it is not excessive and much better than other places I have stayed. The rooms were always clean and ready for use. As I stated in a previous review the lighting in the bathrooms is excellent. I will stay here again.

I've stayed at this hotel several times while in Edmond and have always had a great stay. The remodeling is a little strange, the ice machines aren't working and the soda machine is in the hall. The front office said they were going to give us a better rate but that wasn't reflected on our bill. I will stay there again but hopefully it will be in better shape.

we made a reservation at this hotel based on previous stays but were never told about remodeling going on at hotel. The price was higher than we paid in the past and hotels next door were better prices. The hotel should have at least given us the courtesy of what was going on inside. We are rewards members and did stay at another holiday inn express later into our trip. Very disappointed they were concerned more about filling rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lolita P Greeted each time we arrived/departed
We came to stay at this hotel for our neice's wedding. When I made the reservation I was cautioned more than once that there may still be construction going on when we arrived (we had made our reservation a little over a month in advance#. Natalie, the young lady who I spoke to even said she understood if I wanted to check with some of the surrounding hotels. She went on to explain about the construction crew and the noisy hours to expect during our stay. Even with that, I let my husband know and we decided to make the reservation. We were given a discount possibly because of construction #and our AARP discount on top of that# and we were ready to go. When we arrived, much of the lobby was complete and beautiful We were greeted pleasantly upon arrival and departure each time. We found everyone to be super friendly. Our rooms were really beautiful and nice. Our beds were comfortable. The cookies in the lobby were amazing, by the way! We left as we came, happy with our visit and would recommend it and stay there again if we needed a hotel room in that area. Thank you Natalie for all of your help. There was also a young man there who was very nice and helpful and a different young lady when we checked out, as well as Barbara #I think that was her name). Thank you all!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChelW2 Great Place to Stay
I was in town for my niece's high school graduation. When I called to make sure my room was reserved, the front desk gal (I think she said her name was Natalie) was very helpful. She gave me a heads up that they were remodeling and wanted to know if it was a problem. Even with remodelers coming and going, the stay was quiet and peaceful. Not knowing they had a 10 p.m. curfew for the pool, they didn't scold us for being in it at 11 p.m. But, we weren't loud and rowdy either. Breakfast was perfect. Scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, three differen cereals, two different milk options, yogurt, peanut butter, jelly, muffins, bagels, toast, pancakes, orange juice, grapefruit juice, coffee, tea... A definite place I will stay on my next visit to Edmond.

Hotel under remodeling. TV did not work ( I wanted to watch a play-off game ). Heat had been turned off due to the "heat wave". The thermostat made a loud clicking noise for about three hours. Nothing anybody could do about it. No other rooms available. Had to ask for a credit. It was measley.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Charles from Houston Don't Book Here Right Now, Under Construction
This Holiday Inn Express is under construction. We were told nothing and didn't find out until our arrival. We were placed in three different rooms. The first was a handicap room, very small and dusty due to the construction. The second room was a recently renovated room, heat and air did not work. Second room was okay also recently renovated, could still smell fresh paint. No secondary security lock. Rooms could not be accessed from the main entrance, you could only enter via the side hallway entrance. No Ice machines or vending machines or place to purchase anything. Breakfast was in a make shift room on the first floor, fairly small and thrown together at the last minute. I saw the person preparing breakfast in one of the guest rooms down the hall. I did go up on the second and third floors too looking for an ice machine; They were also under construction. If I were the management of this property I would close it until the renovation was completed. Not your typical experience at a Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kaygal Staff - Natalie
I want to specifically praise your staff member, Natalie. After checking out and traveling about 100 miles, I realized I had left a book in my hotel room that is of great importance to me personally and is irreplaceable. I called the hotel and spoke to your employee, Natalie. She immediately went up to the room and found the book. She offered to mail the book and called me to day to let me know that she had done so and to give me the tracking number. I cannot express how much I appreciate her caring service. I will definitely recommend your hotel and stay there again any time I am in the area.
I also spoke to your employee, Candace, on Sunday. She was also very courteous and helpful letting me know that Natalie would be able to mail the book on Monday.

We stayed at this location the week before so we were aware of the work going on, but there seemed to be no leadership this time.
The girl at check-in was excellent, but apologized for the condition of the facility/ she thought the remodeling company had been replaced. The young man working in the breakfast area was doing a good job. There were no restrooms in the lobby area. The lobby area has not been finished. We had to wait a long time for someone to show up at the front desk to check out.
We will not stop at this location until the owners get their act together.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LW2014 Not your Best Option in OKC/Edmond
We needed a room to spend the night in while doing some work on our home. I specifically chose this hotel due to a certain room type (King Bed with Sofa Sleeper) even though the price was a bit higher than some others nearby. When we checked in, they said, "Yes, you reserved that room, but we don't have any available." So, they booked us into a two queen room. Not too bad, but not what we wanted or expected, and we received no discount.
The hotel was undergoing renovations, but this was not noted on the website when we made reservations. My wife has severe allergies, and the drywall dust permeating the hotel was brutal. They should ensure that potential guests know that there are renovations ongoing. We would not have stayed here had we known.
It may be a good choice once renovations are complete, but I would avoid until that time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MikeW36S Incorrect billing, bad breakfast
I received another guest"s bill. My room number was on the bill. The bill was totally wrong. Breakfast was mediocre. The eggs were cold and the bagels were stale. The hostess was sitting on the floor in the kitchen area checking her phone. She got up and picked up a pan of eggs without washing her hands. When another guest complained that breakfast was cold, the hostess acted like she didn't understand English. Hotel was in disarray due to renovations. We won't stay at this property again.

The property is not so bad but the staff is the worest I have ever incountered.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wrdcg Financially over priced
The front desk lady was very accommodating but the renovations make the stay somewhat disappointing. Our toilet was plugged and after we plunged it the toilet worked very sluggishly making us hesitant to use it.apparently this was a ongoing problem with this specific room.We are loyal holiday inn users and felt the reno's and toilet were bit too much. Too pricey considering above. Thanks W Cramer

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by scrapgma Great place to stay
We have stayed at this hotel several times on our way between Minnesota and Texas. The location is easy to find, and we always try to visit POPS (a cool gas station/cafe just a few miles east of the hotel on Route 66 - they sell over 600 kinds of soda pop!). The only mini-downside to our most recent visit to the hotel was that the biscuits and gravy was not hot. It was only "lukewarm", but the attendant graciously took it to a microwave to heat it up for us! (Except for that minor downside, I would have given this hotel 5 stars.)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sleepless Man in TX Don't expect to get any sleep here!
Christmas night, dog tired and needed sleep.
Disturbed from a deep sleep after midnight because they booked a second person into my room! Then they moved that person to the room above me and they were very loud for the next 30 min. Alarms go off a little after 3 am...LOUD! I tripped over the coffee table trying to get out of the bed and room and about broke my arm...it still hurts.
Night man's response - No problem...alarm just "tripped!" Gee, sorry. go get back to sleep.
Ever try to sleep after being awaken by a very loud alarm?
I didn't get the rest I needed and I was late seeing family the next morning.
Manager never responded to my call and request for a return call!
IHG did not respond to survey request to have someone call me!
Called Customer Care...all they can say is "sorry" we will forward complaint to the hotel.
Personnel that checked me in and out were great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by taca59 No hot water and rude employee!
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Edmond because of the location, due to my husband having surgery at the OU Medical Center. We had been told by medical personnel, that area hotels offered a 20% discount if you had medical procedures in the area. We had received such a discount at another hotel during a different stay. When I mentioned this to the hotel desk person, who was very nice, she said that they had a standard Medical rate, and that it would be only a $ .99 savings for us off the rate that we had! Wow! Our room was clean, but worn, and we became aware that there was construction going on-not something that was noted on the website when making reservations. Our first room was located over the laundry and while watching TV and getting ready for bed, the floors shook and there was horrible noise, due to the washers-we were moved. The next morning at 4:30 we had no hot water and when we told the desk person (a grey haired man with a grey beard) he argued with us and said that we did, and just didn't let it run long enough. We had let it run, told him so, and he continued to argue. The shower also did not allow but a trickle of water to come through the shower nozzle and when we told him about this he told us we could move to another room. Since we were on the way to the hospital, we said that this was not possible, to which he replied, "So you'd rather have a broken room than one that works". We had no choice, but to stay the second night, in which there was still no hot water. This was a terrible hotel to stay at during a stressful time-which many guests would be in because of the proximity to the hospital. My advise would be NOT to stay here! We will be questioning our stays at Holiday Inn Express in the future if this is the standard in employees that they employee and the quality of room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AlpacaMan More than adequate stay
Overall, this is a good deal for your money. The beds and pillows were fine. The service was good. They kept my room on reserve even though there was an issue with the reservation credit card. They even provided me with Band-Aids a couple days in a row. Would like a larger bathroom. It's impossible to open the bathroom door while sitting on the throne. The water was never hot in the shower, but it was never uncomfortable. The breakfast was good as free hotel breakfasts go. Especially the cinnamon rolls. The bathroom especially is showing some signs of wear, But was always clean and sanitary.
