Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 178 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service This is a preferred hotel of my company, and the staff is always very helpful. August 2, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DONT STAY HERE My stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Horseheads was by far THE WORST HOTEL OF ANY COMPANY OR BRAND EVER!!! I am above Platinum Member now called Sprie I believe now and even so should never matter when you stay at a hotel you should be treated maybe a little better but you should always receive good service and are paying for a nice stay. My wife and I were never so offended and appalled by the staff and how they keep up that hotel. I would like to start off by saying my wife and I travel a lot and I even in my posting for reviews did you a favor to say to not compare my review of this place to other Holiday Inn Express's as I would expect more and have stayed at nicer even in Niagara Falls where that too is a deprived city. From day one we walked into the hallway after checking in and there was a smell of smoke and musty air which was even worse in the room. The Air Conditioner was from the 70's loud and not really working well. Should I mention the internet did not work the entire stay. My wife and I both suffer from allergies and asthma. I however have severe asthma and could not breath well even with my rescue inhalers. This was an awful place. Any reviews that say otherwise must have the lowest expectations ever. Day one we checked in as I mentioned since checking in the room was musty and smoky smelling very humid and very thin walls. We could hear anyone walking outside and in the hallways. Internet would not connect but we got in later and I did not have energy to call to get moved to a new room. In the morning I called to state the air conditioning unit seems to not work well and the room smells of smoke and this musty smell including the internet did not work. So the one and only real thing they did was send someone to first check the internet. However, this was worse he knew absolutely nothing about computers or networking and smelled horrible of body odder the entire room lingered when he left. I called to say we wanted to change rooms or we would be leaving. They moved us finally after me threatening to leave. The second room was almost worse as the smoky and musty smell was even stronger. If we did not have plans all day I would have moved hotels but had no times to search. My clothes smelled from this stay including my luggage and bags. Try to take a shower? Of course however, the bathroom is so small the door has to be closed and when you get out of the shower your foot will basically be in the toilet as it's that close. But the worst part even was that night it rained not even hard and sounded as if we were in a microwave with pop corn going off. It was o loud and we could not even hear the TV which only goes up to 30 which again they know the walls are thin so that is I am sure why that is locked down. We had no sleep I am now sick from this stay and my breathing took 2 days to get back on track. This was by far my worst experience ever. Also, when calling that night to explain the rain was so loud I asked the lady 3 times for confirmation she could hear it over the phone and she stated she could which I never doubted due to how loud it was. I have stayed in many places and even outside NYC while a Hurricane came up and never heard rain like this. Even though they stated they would take money off and comp me some points no one even said how much points or what was going to be taken off my bill. Well it was not that much the entire stay should be taken care of as the stay was horrible. Also, when we were checking out we walked in the main lobby and the staff member says "High kiddos are you checking out now?" Kiddos? My wife and I are working adults and have never been talked to that way. To add the wall paper is peeling off, and you can't just cover up the walls with wall paper and popcorn ceiling paint over a drop down ceiling panels when the rooms have been smoked in and that is their way to cover it up. Yeah you cannot do that as the tar is still there. As for the walls being so thin and the roof too, my recommendations demolish this place start over. This place is just disgusting with smells and treatment. Also, I am on to the game that is played too. The front main lobby has a small air machine to freshen the smell when you walk in and comes on each time you walk by. Someone should do something more for my wife and I this was by far the worst experience ever from any hotel brand and we have been very loyal to IHG brand. July 31, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by great customer service but horrible beds Our trip to the finger lakes was great. I am loyal to Holiday Inn and am usually happy with everything. This trip was a little different. I thought the staff was great. Super helpful and courteous. The beds we named " the brick and lumpy". It was so loud ear plugs are provided. I appreciated that but you could literally hear every single conversation happening in the other rooms. The rooms are super tiny and bathroom even smaller. July 30, 2015
