Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ketchupandmustard Stayed by accident but pleasantly surprised!
Stayed here after experiencing car trouble and having to stay overnight in Emporia until we could get back on the road. Hotel spotless, all staff seemed to take pride in this property from breakfast server to front desk to cleaning staff. Everyone had a smile and helpful attitude. On entering our room, obvious that the air conditioning not functioning. Called front desk and within 3 minutes someone up to look, declaring that indeed there was a problem. Asked if we would mind changing rooms and when we said we would come down to get a key they said no, we will bring to you, which they promptly did, upgrading us in the process. Since we did not have a car, the front desk provided us with take out menus, making recommendations which were spot on.
All in all - I would rate this hotel and staff Excellent in all respects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mduke Comfortable, quiet and friendly
Comfortable beds, quiet location and friendly staff. Breakfast buffet was well stocked. Even with a graduation party going on, our room was very quiet and we were not disturbed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jiminlewes Very nice place to stay BUT front desk personnel needs training.
Perhaps this person was just rushed or trying to do too many things. BUT - my wife and I felt like we were intruding on her day when we checked in. Totally different than the staff at the HOliday Inn Express at Greensboro, N.C., where we felt totally welcome and they were glad to see us. Other than that everything was fantastic - food, room, other service personnel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Neatfreak1 Okay
The room was ok. I'm not sure if they put in a new rug but it wasn't flush on the floor. I suspect it was new. The wall had a hole in it. I was ok with the room. It seemed clean but the bathtub/shower area was old.....very old. They tried repainting it a long time ago and the paint was peeling and looked gross. The shower head was yucky as well. The killer for me was a roach that appeared during the night. It died in the bathroom. I haven't seen a roach at a holiday inn express ever! Really gross.
They did acknowledge us as priority club members.

Great comfortable beds. Clean room. The only problem I had was that our room wasn't ready by check-in. The staff did get us in right away once it was. But I did have to wait a little while for it. Other than that the stay was great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JB37 HVAC
The HVAC unit on our room blew only warm air even though the setting was in the cool mode and set at 60 degrees. We slept without any covers which was not as comfortable as we expected. I did not notify the desk that night because of the hour and we were too tired to relocate.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by EandK Always a good stay
We enjoyed our recent stay the HIE Emporia location. Good parking, familiar ambience, comfortable room, great breakfast. One suggestion would be to remove a tip bowl left at breakfast. First time we had experienced this, and it seemed out-of-place. Great location that got us back on our journey right away, close to local restaurants and quiet stay!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by UGoFish Below Average
Appeared understaffed. Took awhile to check in two callers on phone an only one attendant. Jacuzzi broken and "heated" pool was cold. The room was adequate but the advertised recliner and ottoman was actually a worn out overstuffed chair. Breakfast was "warm", coffee included (some food items were half covered in tin foil implying leftover). The attendant spent the entire time seated at a table talking to what appeared to be an associate or perhaps manager. We had to bring the coffee to room to heat in microwave. I went by the front desk three times while carrying out items with the intention of speaking to an attendant but none was ever present. I eventually just dropped the room keys and left.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cacey Hot tub not hot
When hotels advertise hot tubs or jacuzzis I expect them to be hot, not luke warm or cooler than the pool. Otherwise, rooms clean, breakfast good.

This Emporia Holiday Inn Express is a favorite stop. We have
stayed often and will return. The lobby is beautiful and the
rooms are immaculate and very comfortable.
We look forward to breakfast and Petra who has been working there for three years makes sure she gets to work by five and has fresh coffee and breakfast by six . Petra keeps the entire area neat and clean.
We will return as often as possible

You cannot pick a better place to stop, it's clean, the staff from the room cleaners to the breaffast staff are great. Best of all you feel safe while your in your room & have no worries about your car parked in the lot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DANNY3904 EMPORIA HOLIDAY INN
I WAS ON MY WAY HOME FROM ORLANDO TO NEW YORK AND THIS HOTEL WAS A VERY PLEASANT SURPRISE. THIS IS PROBABLY THE NICEST HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS I EVER STAYED IN. THE ROOM WAS VERY SPACIOUS, CLEAN AND VERY COMFORTABLE. THE BREAKFAST WAS TYPICAL HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS, BUT THE WOMEN ASSIGNED TO THE BREAKFAST AREA WAS EXCEPTIONALLY ACCOMMODATING. THE LOCATION IS RIGHT OFF OF 95 IN A VERY NICE AREA WITH PLENTY OF AVAILABLE PARKING. IT SEEMS TO BE ONE OF THE NEWER HOTELS BY HOLIDAY INN. THE HOTEL IS A REAL BARGIN. YOU FELT LIKE YOU WERE IN A HOTEL AND NOT AN EXPRESS. I WOULD POSITIVELY STAY AT THIS HOTEL AGAIN AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

female at desk was very unfriendly. 3/23/2013. She acted like I was interupting what ever she was doing in the back room. On the oposite side of the scale the lady in the breakfast room was extremely pleasant.

we were greeted with a friendly smile and a warm reception as we walked up to the reception desk. Our reservations were ready with no hiccups and we were able to get to our rooms pronto.The rooms were sizable with comfortable beds and the temp was adjustable.The breakfast was ready at 6.30 am and we were able to be on our way by 7.I would highly recommend this site to anyone looking for a clean and relaxing place to stay.
