Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nash business Nice local hotel
Newish hotel that is clean and close to a couple of fast food restaurants, Aldis, and a Chilis. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Big breakfast with hot and cold choices. If you are doing business in the area, this is a good place to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HHG77 Broken elevator
We were with a group of ATA members and some of them were handicapped. The elevator was broken all weekend and we had to carry all luggage up the stairs. Looks like someone could have gotten it repaired for them.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by muin68 Horrible!!!
The day I checked in, I had to wait while the front desk clerk ranted on the phone to someone about the guy who worked nights and something he didn't do. She ranted and raved about dirty rooms and no reg cards. Both doors were open and it was over 80 degrees in the lobby. Then there were no luggage carts. I'm handicapped so this is a must. The clerk acted disgusted she had to go find one for me. When I finally get to the room, It's 80+ degrees in there. The sun blazing in the thermostat set on 75. I set it as low as it would go, but is only to 65. I waited and waited for it to cool down. Finally I called the front desk and was told that the thermostat only went to 65 and I would have to wait until it cooled down outside. Really??!!! I was sweating in the middle of the night and couldn't sleep! I could hear the TV next door and the heard of elephants over my head all night. When I posted review on a travel site, someone called from this hotel, but it was the manager. It was the same female who had checked me who had been ranting and told me to wait until it cooled down outside. IF the hotel was concerned, the manager should have called. They did nothing. The other thing I hated was they cut the lights off in my room every single day after they cleaned. I do not like entering a strange room in the dark. Yes, the light switch was by the door, but had there been some crazy in the room, they would have already been on me before I could have turned on the light. I also killed 3 bugs crawling across the floor! I hate bugs!!! This was the worst stay ever and I will never go back! I will sleep in my car first. How this facility has gotten any decent reviews is beyond me. Sad. Very sad.

I come around here for work every few months, and the place is good. The one thing I could recommend is that they fix the workout equipment, the elliptical and the treadmill near the window are out of commission.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bobv60 LOUD AND NOISEY,WITH A BROKEN ELEVATOR
Getting stuck in a improperly working elevator that was told it was ok to use . NOT FUN. elevator was not working the entire stay and the staff was no where to be found during our stay. always a sign at the check in desk that said we are out and will return soon! should have been given a discount.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sparky703 Coffee please.
2 out of 3 mornings we had to seek out the DR attendant and ask for coffee. The pots were empty both days.
Other than that and the broken elevator it was a typical side of the highway facility.
Stains on the guest room carpet had me concerned.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TP3850 Disappointed in this hotel
My visit to this hotel started with the elevator being out and my room being on the 3rd floor. I had a long hard day so I decided this was just another issue for the day. When I got to my room, it was hot. The air conditioner was not running but seemed to be ok when turned on. As the night progressed, I realized the a/c did not function properly. I set the thermostat at 65 degrees and the room never really cooled off. The next morning the shower was very difficult to get working. Seems as though the handle that operates the shower head was broken. It took several minutes of working on the lever to get the shower to operate. The only good part of this hotel was the staff. The young gentleman was courteous.
Possibly the worst hotel I have ever visited.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by muin68 Comfortable Place
This hotel is comfortable and close to my work when in the area. The rooms are a bit dated, but the bed is comfortable. The walls are a bit thin as I heard the TV next door until the early hours at a low roar, but it wasn't a major issue for me. The only real complaint is the theromstat only goes to 65 so I never really got the room as cool and comfortable as I like it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie1379 Clean Room / Nice Staff
I was very impressed with this hotel. I would normally stay at an upscale full service hotel; however this hotel was the closest and most convenient location for visiting my family in the area. I was pleasantly surprised with how clean and updated the rooms were. They staff was also very kind. I had to leave very early in the morning before the breakfast was open and the front desk attendant kindly gave me some fruit and yogurt for the road and I didn’t even have to ask.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Good business stay
I usually do not stay at Holiday Inn Express during my business travel. However, due to the location of the meeting I was attending this was the closet hotel. I really was surprised by how nice it was and enjoyed my short stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HHG77 FOOD experience
The last two weekends we have been in a Holiday Inn Express. Both weekends we have had a mediocre breakfast experience. The One in Rhode Island, had FOZEN hard boiled eggs that were off color (obviously been there a while). The second day (Sunday morning) there was some kind of an omelet that had an indescribable filling. Again at this Holiday Inn Express we had the same indescribable filling in the omelet (would have been better with just cheese) and no hard boiled eggs and at both of them there was no hot water and no REGULAR tea, only decaf. There was also no meat on the bar.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lawrenceville Rooms stink
Should have expected what I got when I made the reservation on line and the only rate available was to buy an additional 1000 points. No option for not buying points. I made the reservation anyway since I had business to conduct in the area. At check-in, I was advised that I was stuck in a "smoking" room. THIS ROOM HAD AN OBNOXIOUS ODOR. I was supposed to stay 2 nights but cancelled the second night due to the room odor. I do not understand why, in this day and age, a hotel of any sort would subject their customers to this repulsive second hand smoke and odor. I will definitely never return to this location. When I do business in the Forest City area in the future, I will definitely be looking for alternate accommodations.

I travel regularly for work. I tend to stay at your brand hotels. However, I always look forward to the times when my work takes me to Forest City. For some reason, the staff there has figured out how to be the absolute best in what they do! I am happy to stay there, and have never had anything less than a very wonderful stay at your hotel.
It is always in tip top shape, the breakfast is always perfect, and it is a very warm and comfortable place to visit while on the road.
Thanks for being so awesome!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KHN01 Best in area
This is by far the best place to stay in this area. I lived in this area for 8 years, so I'm very familiar with most of the places offering accommodations and none can really compare. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and anxious to provide anything extra you might need. The amenities are very good. Centrally located with many businesses (restaurants, stores, etc.) nearby. I stayed here when I was house hunting 8 years ago, and now stay here whenever I have to come back to town for business. It can be slightly more costly (on average), but you do get what you pay for in this area. I would recommend this place highly.

Miss Elizabeth is always professional and very welcoming at every chech-in and Miss Jennifer on first shift is always helpful when I need to change my reservation dates as my schedule sometimes changes, as I'm sure we all know. Each and every interaction with any staff member has always yielded a positive outcome - they are all great and make stays away from home much more bearable.
Thanks to you all.

I can usually find something wrong with every situation. Not this time! The bed was great. I had my first-ever enjoyable hotel shower. The water pressure was great. It was nice and hot. the soaps and shampoo were quality. The toilet tissue was soft. The room was clean. The staff was friendly, helpful, clean, etc. We slept thru the breakfast, so no comment there.
We will be going back!

We had a lovely suite that was roomy for 3 people. We enjoyed the free wi-fi and the pancake maker. Very snazzy. Overall it was a good trip. Housekeeping staff was very nice. The only CON we had was the hallways that had the smoking rooms were very strong to walk through. Glad our room was non smoking.

Good complimentary breakfast. Okay service. Our room was supposed to have a sleeper sofa, but didn't. And when asked for a second rollaway bed, they said it was a fire hazard and wouldn't allow it. So our oldest just had to sleep on the couch.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Huskhaven Left room cleaner than what we found it.
The room was non-smoking but room had a musty-old smoke smell. The comforter was tucked too far at the foot leaving a deficit in the coverlet at the top of the bed. The utmost worst thing about the rom was the sticky urine on the floor around the toilet and the floor was sticky with hair spray.
