Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by roadsavvy Easy access to 95
Like to stop here because the staff is very pleasant and the free breakfast is good. The room is roomy and clean, the shower spray strong and the pillows are comfortable. There are a few fine dining restaurants in the area, which weren't open on Sundays, but there's an Applebee's close by that has good food and service. The only drawback is the noisy air conditioning unit.

This hotel is always clean and smells great when you walk in. The rooms are quiet and I like having a bathtub with a shower. The staff in the breakfast room are very attentive.

Nice room and close to I-95. Very clean and comfortable. Friendly and efficient staff. They had an excellent selection for breakfast. The eggs were powdered (I think) - not the best, but everything else was great. Would recommend and will stay here again.

Our car broke down on I95 near Emporia. The staff at HIE made us feel at home and gave us extended checkout next day so we could solve our transportation issue. Bought a new Ford Focus at Owen Ford. They were awesome! So were State Police, AAA and O'BerrysService Center.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bastet317 Great hotel when traveling N to S or S to N
We were looking for a doggie friendly hotel, and came upon this one. I am a neat and cleaniness freak and my husband and I travel with our small Yorkie. I had nightmare hotels that were filthy and disgusting that I wanted to sleep in our car. This Holiday Inn Express is wonderful. Great beds, clean, clean clean, quiet, and nice breakfast. I will be staying here again on my trips up and down from Florida. Thank you for a nice experience.

The room was decent but the bathroom needs serious attention. The shower curtain rod was falling off the wall and did absolutely no good keeping the shower curtain in place. Water was everywhere.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MMDA Great experience.
My husband and I are always very happy with the service we receive in a Holiday Inn.
Bed is super comfortable and the bedding is incredible.
In Emporia I must add that as usual the breakfast fantastic and the employee in the dining room on Easter Sunday was just amazing, nice, courteous a very pleasant experience. She deserve a gold medal.
Keep the same way of serving your customers and will keep visiting you!

Wonderful staff working the weekend night shift. The am breakfast staff was generous with offering to look for fresh fruit. Enjoyed staying at this location.
Side note: the rooms were clean and fresh. We are accustomed to soft beds so we needed to adjust to the firm mattress.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Child10 Room okay! Beds comfortable except the sofabed.
Had a problem with my reservations King size bed for 5 adults. That was not going to work. The Lady at desk gave us another persons room for one by mistake. She was very sorry for the mixup. We did finally get the right room with two queens and sofa bed. We use this hotel while traveling. Very pleases once we got correct room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fdb123 Tried using the hot tub....
The room was nice and comfortable. However I tried using the hot tub in the pool area and sorry to say it was disgusting. It needs to be taken out of service. It is useless, decrepit and the lukewarm putrid water can be a health hazard.

No where near the best or the worst. Hotel is priced right. The staff and breakfast is always good. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel just needs a few updates but it's still a great place to spend the night.

Stayed at this HI twice-drive to Fla and return trip back to Pa. Both stops were very good experiences. Great breakfast, friendly staff. In fact, we left a toothbrush charger behind at hotel and the staff mailed it to our home. We also enjoyed a dip in the pool and relaxing in the hot tub. Would definitely stop here again next year.
A must stop for food is Wilson's Bar-B-Q and Grill.

STAFF TAKES GREAT CARE OF ME WHILE GOING TO SAINT AUGUSTINE, FL. I KEEP MISSING THE WARM COOKIES FOR THE GUESTS. THEY KEEP THE ROOM CLEAN AND NEAT. THE BREAKFAST HAS MANY VARIETY OF GOOD THINGS TO EAT. THEY EVEN HAVE A REFRIGERATOR FOR MY MEDICATION. EMPORIA IS HALF WAY POINT FROM MY HOME IN PLYMOUTH, MA AND SAINT AUGUSTINE.FL. ASK THE CLERK TO SHOW YOU THE WAY TO THE GAS STATION THAT THE LOCALS USE.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kewbrick Overburdened clerk and Incorrect room type
Stayed here on the return trip to NY from Florida. Used points since only 10,000 were needed. Made the reservation thru the IHG web site. Selected a room for 5 as I had my wife and three older children. Arrived around 8pm. Reservation was ready and check in went as expected. When I went to the room on the 3rd floor, my room had two queen beds. No pullout or any other sleeping accomodations for a room that was listed as 5. When I went back to the desk, was told nothing was available but a rollaway could be provided. Not ideal, but for the one night no problem. 30 minutes later, no bed. Back to the lobby. It seems that the poor girl at the lobby desk was the only employee as droves of people where checking in. I felt bad for her. I left and returned 30 minutes later, still packed. My wife called the desk and told her to forget it (it seems she already had) and we used an aerobed we had with us to provide the extra bed needed.
2 problems - website incorrect and overworked / poor service to resolve the issue.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BubbaWiggles Internet Service was terrible
When I checked in as a member I was given a code to access the Internet. After driving for 10 hours, I took a long bath and then just wanted to relax and check my email. An hour later I still could not get on and called the desk, the girl on duty said I could come down to the lobby and get better access. I did not find this at all helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jake111111111 Great Mattress
Clean room, great mattress - these were definitely THE selling points.
No restaurants in the immediate vicinity and cumbersome 'U-turn' to return to the Interstate and dinning were minor cons.

Third time we stayed over night at Emporia's Holiday Inn Express on our way from NJ to our southern destination of Marathon, FL Never have we been disappointed in the accommodations, breakfast and overall experience! Probably would not stay elsewhere. Thank you for having high expectations met!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wolfie51 Bathroom not in working order
The shower head in the our bathroom was held on by a zip tie and unfortunately we were not able to adjust the shower head! We were in a handicap room because they had no other king rooms even though we had a confirmed reservation for a regular king room. Also the jacuzzi was not working and the front desk clerk did not realize it until we went and told her! The staff was very nice and apologized for the problems she offered to credit our priority club account with a 1000 points. We enjoy staying at Holiday Inns but were a little disappointed in our stay this time.

This is s great place to stay. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, the room is clean, spacious and well appointed. Bathroom is large and amenities are good. Breakfast is terrific. One drawback is that the nearest good bar and restaurant is a bit out of the way, and usually very busy, but the Express is worth the inconvenience.
