Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by E&EG Restful lodging in nice rural surroundings.
We have stayed overnight at this property several times. It is one of our favorites and we use it to compare to other Holiday Inn Express experiences. It is certainly one of the very best, nice friendly staff, very clean facility and the rooms are always near perfect! We look forward to our next stay there.

THE HOTEL IS VERY CONVENIENT FOR THOSE TRAVELING ON ROUTE 90 NEAR ERIE, PA. THE HOTEL IS WELL MAINTAINED AND THE ROOM WAS CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE. THE STAFF WAS VERY COURTEOUS AND PROFESSIONAL.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rojero Nice hotel for overnight
I liked the hotel for an overnight but for multiple nights you really miss having a small fridge and microwave for leftovers and snacks. There wasn't even a microwave in the Lobby (which doubles as a Breakfast Bar) to use if you wanted. Any hotel charging more than $120 night should have these minimal amenities.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by E&EG Quiet and Restfull
This rural location is a very cozy place to get a good night of rest after a long day of travel. It is quiet, clean and the staff is friendly and accommodating. IF you need a really good night's sleep, this is the place for you. If you like to rise early, good fresh coffee and warm food this is the place. The only drawback is on the evening you arrive you may want to eat prior to your arrival especially if you want choices. Otherwise this place is GREAT!

Everything was wonderful. Friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable bed and a good breakfast. There are sitting areas outside and even a basketball hoop for guests, along with the pool. Peaceful and quiet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sabres Coach Enjoyable couple of days
Spent 2 nights at the hotel and met my expectations based on information the site offered and other reviewers comments. Staff was friendly and efficient. Hotel overall was clean and looked recently refreshed. Nice size pool that the kids really enjoyed. Also loved the family room, traveling with two boys that do not want to sleep in the same bed, the family room offered a great solution with bunk beds and a separated partial wall with their own TV and gaming systems.
The only thing I would like to see a minor improvement on was the breakfast offerings with regards to the hot options. Our kids prefer the fresh waffles offered at other hotel chains over the pancakes, although I did notice younger children (our boys were 9

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beckyqtwo Great value, large room, fabulous breakfast
We stayed here to visit Chautauqua for the day and were delighted with the room...it was clean, spacious and well decorated. Breakfast was amazing...waffles, pancakes AND french toast...along with rolls, cereal fruit, eggs with hash and delicious kielbasa. A great place at an excellent value...I am becoming a big fan of Holiday Inn Express!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BarbKV Pleasantly surprised.
This was my first stay in Holiday Inn Express and Suites and I was very favorably impressed. Staff, amenities, room comfort and convenience, and breakfast were above what I have experienced in other name hotels.
I will be looking first for Holiday Inn Express when I travel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sputve Great stay for a hotel off the busy highway...
Great little town! A person at the hotel desk recommended a place to eat in town. Turned out to be a great pizza! Very nice morning breakfast...would easily cost $10 or more per person at a restaurant. It's included in the price of the room! Great Deal!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kevsterama Best Holiday Inn experience ever!
I have never written one of these, but am compelled to do so here for Findley Lake HI Express...
let me cut to the chase:
1) Recognized me for being IHG Gold ; some hotels don't...
2) forgot toiletries---they helped me with it all--even cut myself shaving and they helped me with the bandaids
3) BEST!!! HI Express breakfast I ever had. the biscuits were the best I have ever had and the eggs were top notch!
Thank you, HI Findley Lake... Now I know why you say you're "Award Winning" on the phone!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jjgindy Great alternative in Erie/Buffalo area
We stayed here during traveling when no rooms were available in Erie. This was a great alternative with comfortable, clean rooms that didn't feel as used as bigger city hotels. Also great breakfast served on weekend.

Excellent hotel, 6 miles from Peek n Peak Resort. Would think this would be an excellent ski lodge hotel for the winter.
Walked beautiful 9 holes on the lower course for $12. Beer was too expensive at $5 each. They have 2 courses. Upper is in the mountains. Lower is flat.
Pine Lodge Restaurant was great and open late. Nothing in walking distance around hotel to eat, however.
Easy 25 min drive to Jamestown for work the next morning.
Better than average HIE breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kareebee The Absolute BEST Holiday Inn Express I've stayed at
If all the Holiday Inn Express's were like this, I'd never switch brands.
This needs to be the flagship model of how to run an inn!
Such a pleasure to stay at, will look forward to returning.
Please have other Inn owners model themselves after this location!

Upon arriving, they had fresh baked cookies and a warm smile with very attentive needs. When I asked about local restaurants nearby, I was given a plethora of ideas and they were phenomenal. This was one of the best Holiday Inn I have experienced and the breakfast was incredible the next morning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MJD829 Wonderful stay!
By far, one of the best hotels. From check in to check out we could not have been more pleased. On arrival we were offered fresh baked cookies, various fresh fruits and bottled water. We then took advantage of a beautiful indoor swimming pool. The room was very clean and having 4 fluffy not flat pillows on each bed was great. We were called from the front desk about 10 minutes after arrival to see if everything was OK and if we needed anything. Beds were very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was super. We were offered scrambled eggs, sausage links, sausage gravy and biscuits, pancakes, juice, coffee, pastry, and much more. The staff was constantly bringing out fresh, hot food. This was so much better than any breakfast we were ever offered at other hotels. We were even given "free play" coupons for Presque Isle since we were stopping there on the way home. Thanks to all the staff for a wonderful stay. I know we will be back along with others we have shared our experience with.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sleerost01 As good if not better than other Holiday In Express locations
Because our GPS would not recognize a Route Number to find the hotel, I searched Finley Lake and latched onto a Realtor selling a property with a street name. The GPS was set for that location, and the rest was simple as it took us to the right exit and the hotel.
The person behind the counter was excellent on reception and moving us to a King room with a refrigerator from a Queen without a refrigerator; very responsive. The room was very clean and that started off an excellent overnight experience after coming several hundred miles from a different hotel facility in Columbus OH where a complimentary breakfast was not available. My wife, who was a doubter, began to warm to Holiday Inn and HI Express; this was an excellent stay for her. The towels were crisp and that pleased her. For me, having stayed at Holiday Inns previously, came to expect this and I wasn't disappointed at all. This King room included a Microwave, Refrigerator, dishes, eating utensils, and even a bag of pop-corn ready to go along with coffee and tea bags and a kitchen sink!
When we asked for directions to a department store in the area, the reception desk pulled out directions from a file cabinet that got us to where we needed to go painlessly.
Breakfast was standard fare for Holiday Inns, but it is more than some other hotel facilities offer; even higher priced facilities. The dining room was adequately stocked and restocked over and over as people came and went in the morning. The staff was pleasant and accommodating all morning.
The cleaning staff were personable as we chatted with two in the elevator to and from breakfast.
The only con, if this counts, is that the hot water in the shower wasn't consistent as it fluctuated from hot to cold several times. That's it. Everything else was as perfect as it could be. Of course, the bedding was not as comfortable as our home Sleep Number bed, but did not expect it to be...it was adequate for a pretty good night's sleep...that is all we were after.
