Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by regular jim Beds are OK.
I stayed at this hotel on and off for about 90 days, in four different rooms. For the most part the rooms are ok, but the best part are the mattresses and pillows. Very nice.
The staff, while friendly, can be unorganized and unhelpful. On one occasion, I was told there were no rooms available even though I had a reservation, except for the other 7 rooms which were available, which weren't rooms, but they were suites, smoking rooms, pet rooms and king rooms. I understand my previous sentence doesn't make sense, but it is what I was told. Also, I was told I couldn't have the empty suite because someone else might want it later, and that it costs more, which I wouldn't mind paying for.
On more than one occasion, my "DO NOT DISTURB" sign was removed from my room and placed on the knob so that the cleaning crew wouldn't have to clean it. Usually though, they would come in and make the bed and sometimes the trash, but not vacuum or leave bath towels. Although sometimes they would on leave dirty cleaning rags and feather dusters lying about.
My heater made an awful racket and my bathroom sink wouldn't drain, but after I contacted the staff about it, they ignored it again and again. They never got fixed during the 6 weeks I was in that room.
The swimming pool is about 8 feet long and 4 feet deep.
Jean the Breakfast Lady was always nice and had the breakfast out early for us. But Jean was off on the weekends and we never knew what we were going to get.
If you can find another hotel to stay at in Emporia, you should.

We have stayed here many times. Always good service and clean rooms. I forgot my adapter for my computer. They had one that was left behind and let me borrow it. We will be back again for sure.

I stopped at this location out of convenience and was presently surprised at how nice the Holiday Inn Express Brand is. The property was beautiful, staff was friendly and I have to say I am sold on this brand. Extremely good value!

If you are looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay in the Emporia area, this is the place. It is close to eateries, easy to access from the highway, and you are treated in a friendly, welcoming manner. The breakfast offered has more variety than I have usually seen in breakfast-included hotels in a similar price range. If you are sensitive to noise, I would express this to the front desk to get the proper room. There is a little bit of traffic noise since you are close to the road, but I did not find it objectionable at all. All in all, it was a great stop-over on the way to a more southerly destination.
