Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WarmthSeeker Friendly Staff
We stay at this Holiday Inn Express at least twice every year because we are snowbirds. We always enjoy the chips and salsa and chocolate chip cookies waiting for us when we arrive. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. The parking is good because sometimes we pull a trailer and it is nice to have room to park it. The Chinese Buffet next door is great and we can walk.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Baffled Service? What's that?
In every way your 'run of the mill' Holiday Inn Express, except for the service. There simply wasn't any. From the time I arrived and until check out, not a single person (3) looked like they cared that I was alive.
I arrived at the shift change between the swing shift and the night auditor. While you might think that would afford me even more and better service... nay, nay. The outgoing guy was to busy finishing his outgoing duties and the incoming guy was to busy arriving.
Another guest came to the front desk and asked the incoming auditor if by chance the hotel had "glass" drinking glasses, so she could enjoy some wine. Without ever looking at the customer the auditor grunted "nuh". Not understanding the response the guest asked the question twice more and got the same answer and again with zero eye contact. Exasperated she spun around on her heels, shrugged he shoulders and walked away.
Meanwhile my check in was going on and I was asked only about about form of payment, nothing else. Now as a platinum ambassador, I'm accustom to a few more questions and a few statements. They were not to be on that night. Filling in his own paperwork was far more important to him than caring about me, the guest. So to bed I went.
Twenty minutes after getting to my room I called down to the front desk for the internet password (not provided at check-in) and got no answer. It took 15 minutes for for the night guy to answer the phone. Sadder still is that I made a conscious decision not to go to the front desk in person because I didn't want to run into that guy. How sad is that?
The room was acceptable and average in every way making it a familiar night's sleep. Not bad.
Upon leaving in the morning I went to the front desk to ask if the manager was in and was told "no". Inquiring further for a business card for the manager, the answer was again "no".
There was no inquiry as to the nature of my need or problem. She clearly didn't care. All this time she continued doing whatever she was doing on her computer.
While one could chalk this up to the difference between 'city folk vs. country folk', that would be too easy. Hospitality is a service only business and when you add a national chain to that, there come some standards of which this team is oblivious.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Karalee80 Not up to standards
This property definitely did not live up to the standards I've come to expect (and love) about Holiday Inn Express.
Room was very noisy - bathroom had the sound of rushing water through pipes constantly. Pillows were lumpy and poly-fill. Hallway carpets were filthy. Front door was broken.
Breakfast was not served until 7:00am, and for those of us leaving early, only muffins were available (I've stayed at wonderful HIEs that had cinnamon rolls, yogurt, fruit, and oatmeal out as early as 5:00am).
Desk agents were not great and were not pleasant. I was not given the choice of a welcome bag or hospitality points at check-in, but had to pursue it later. I asked for points, which I still have not gotten. The morning agent had a very difficult time figuring out adjusting our bill to allow us to pay in cash; and this was after we had to track him down to ask him to come to the desk.
Horrible price-to-comfort ratio. I would stay somewhere else in the future. This is not what I expect from Holiday Inn.

Just brief stay but enjoyed completely. Good clean room with very comfortable beds. Excellent hot breakfast that was kept well stocked. Lobby very inviting upon entry and staff very attentive to needs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tshan not a good value
over priced. We had a much nicer room in a Holiday Inn Express near Wichita and it was $30 cheaper. They gave us the Senior rate which we didn't get in Grants
