Even though the room was small it was very comfortable and quiet. We found the staff to be very helpful in giving directions. We will stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Recruit 29 Comfortable bed, good service, horrible bath tub
It's a great value but the bathroom is bad. The shower/tub is outdated and after 5 minutes of taking a shower, I was standing in 6 inches of water.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie Guy Room needed a good cleaning
We've stayed at numerous Holiday Inn Express and this one was the WORST. The room needed a good cleaning and dusting. All the counters, lamps, coffee pot and TV needed a good dusting. The bathroom floor needed to be clean, especially in the corners and around the tub area. There was bits of toilet paper floating in the toilet, even after you flushed but the worst was the tub wouldn't drain because there was a gauze bandage in the tub drain, which I cleaned out. The tub still wouldn't drain, so I called house keeping and they put some drain cleaner in but couldn't take a shower for 30 min.
Being near a US Marine Corps Base you'd assume the rooms would meet the min standards of cleanliness. Unsatisfactory

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kelly2302 Very Unhappy
I have to say that this last stay i was VERY UNHAPPY with the service i received. To start I have stay several times at this location due to my son being stationed at the Marine Base. I called to make reservation gave them my name as i do EACH time i call and she could not find anything in the system, first time this has happened they have always found my name, so i give my husband name "nope not there, we will just start over give my your name and a credit card number". NO NO you already have all that information and you are telling me you cant find it. No sorry i will call back when i get my rewards card. end of call. I get a call back I found you im sorry can i make your reservation now, sure. So I give my date from 5/23 til 5/26 two rooms please king size beds. Next i get my conformation it read s check in 5/23 check out 5/24 NO NO so i call explain the reason for the call she says im sorry i everything in fine in the system no worries. Friday May 23 comes we check in that is three rooms correct one night NO NO two rooms 3 night, oh sorry its wrong in the system let me correct that. The next morning we awake to a BILL under the door thank you for your one night stay, OMG REALLY back to the front desk i go. started all over again. WHY??????

The multiple stays have been what is expected from Holiday Inn Express , clean facility, friendly and courteous staff and suitable breakfast. The only disappointment which appears to be a trend at other locations is the WiFi quality, extremely difficult to wrap up business at the end of the day when you do not have the connectivity you expected.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dallas5 Service was Good
Overall the experience was good. The front desk ladies were always pleasant and helpful. Liked the little 'sweetness' of the fresh cookies and tea for the guests. Breakfast overall was okay, have had better at other Holiday Inns. The food should be fully stocked until the end of breakfast vs being picked up prior to where there is nothing for late arrivals. Rooms need to be checked more often for repair maintenance - nothing major, just would help with the comfort of the rooms. Linens are thin, need a better comforter or blanket cover.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Southern at heart Nice Hotel Great bed and Breakfast was excellent
The room was nice, but the bathroom is a little small with the sink in with the tub and toilet. The bed was very comfortable.. nice touch with the pillows indicating firm or soft. The room was able to darken with darkening curtain. The breakfast was very good. Had an excellent variety and nicely arranged. Cute little ready made Omelettes, Turkey, regular Sausage, Biscuit, gravy, pancakes, yogurt, oatmeal, muffins, cinnamon rolls and other assorted items.
They even had cookies available in the lobby in the evenings, Ice tea and fruit in the daytime.
All in all a very nice stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TtT409 Excellent staff and super rooms
The staff was overboard in their actions to fill my every requests. The room was nicely appointed and the bed was very comfortable. This was one of my many stays at this property given my experience there in the past. With grandsons in that area due to the Corps I expect I'll be there again the future. I have in the past brought other friends and relatives to stay at this property and would recommend it to anyone looking for accomaditions in the Jacksonville area. Overall on a scale of one to ten they get a 13.7!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dirt57 Had to change rooms
My first room had a very dirty microwave and counter area by microwave very dirty. Went to front counter and she was great. Moved me to the last room open. Room was fine.
Go down for breakfast at 6:15 A.M. and the milk was frozen in cartons and no pancake machine as it was out of order.
Just not one of my better stays with Holiday Inn Express.

All the reviews that said this place is bad are correct. First thing when I checked in was that we were in a room with two small beds even though I reserved a king and called ahead to make sure that I had a king sized bed. After an hour I get a call saying they have a room available, and this was at 1:30am. Got to the new room and it was okay except that it was dirty. the bed was made but there were wrappers in the window and a half consumed soda next to the tv. Then the phone rings and I go to pick it up and the cord comes out of the back of the phone. I then had to go downstairs to tell the lady that the phone cord was broken and she said that there was not anything she could do tonight but she started to fill out a sheet that looked like what you would fill out if something was broken for maintenance. Came back to the room at around 3pm the next day and the bed was not made and there were no towels and the phone was still not fixed, so I went downstairs again to tell them these things were not up to my standards. I was told, "I will see what I can do" and the girl turned around and walked away. Guess what? When we came back from dinner there was still nothing done in the room for towels/bed making and even though I had had it I knew I was leaving the next day I did not waste my time telling anyone the problems again. The next day we were called at 8am for some reason and when I went downstairs to see who had called the lady said she wanted to know if we were checking out at eleven because they needed the room and I told her that if the phone had been fixed in the three days that we were there I would not have to come down here to tell her that we were platinum elite members and would be checking out late, as was a perk of platinum status. She did not say anything, just stared at me and went about her business. So I went upstairs to go back to sleep and we get another call(even though I still cannot answer) and went downstairs AGAIN and was asked by another person what time I would be checking out...Thoroughly done with these people I just got my wife up, we packed up and left. I will NEVER recommend this property and will tell every Marine I know that this place is the worst hotel I have ever been at, and that is something because I have stayed at $5 hotels with "ladies of the night" out front of them in other countries that I would go back to before I would even think about this place again. I know that someone from the hotel is going to respond in the manner of " we are sorry you had a bad experience and your problems have been addressed with the staff, and we will re-train our people to better serve your needs better" but the bottom line is that these employees are some of the worst I have ever seen and need to be fired.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Worst experience ever at a holiday inn express
Rooms were not very well insulated! Could hear everything going on in halls and rooms next to you. Called front desk several times during the night an all they did was give the people next door a phone call. Will not be staying here again and don't recommend it to anyone wanting a goodnights rest. I you plan to stay up and run the hall and party then this is the place for you.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TKink1 No Hot Water - Poor Customer Service.
Out of the two main items you expect in a hotel - comfortable bed and a hot shower, this stay fell short. When I got ready to go to work in the morning there was no hot water. When I asked the front desk if they were aware that there was no hot water, they simply said "Yeah, it has been out since yesterday. Sorry about that" and slid the bill across the desk to me. I asked if they considered communicating this to me when I had checked in the following day and all she said was, "Sorry about that".
I then sent an email to Customer Care and was again told they were sorry about that and they would let the hotel management know. I think they were already aware. In all my years taking care of customers if I was unable to take care of the basic requirements, I would never expect the customer to pay for their bill. This company fell short.
I did follow-up with Customer Care and let them know that I would not be using this hotel chain anymore. I travel quite a bit and there are other options. They did follow up and say that they would let the hotel management know again and would put some points on my rewards club account. I think that defeats the purpose since I do not plan to use your hotel again.
I would have excused the lack of hot water, but the poor service is what put this over the top. There was truly no concern by the hotel staff or frankly your Customer Care staff. I was simply a number and they were simply going through the motions.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rhelms57 Poor cleaning service, out of regular coffee in-room
Used towels were removed from the room but not replaced with fresh towels. Bathroom was not cleaned. Used drink cups were not replaced, and the hotel was out of regular coffee for in-room service and coffee pot was not cleaned. The front desk personnel were very understanding and helpful, especially the young girl in the evening, and the only reason this stay was not a complete disaster. Housekeeping was not acceptable.
Our son was recently assigned to Camp Lejeune and we intend on visiting him frequently, this was our second stay at HIE. Our first stay was fine.
It is, at this point, our intention to not totally condemn this HIE and consider this May have been an isolated incident and will probably try another stay on our next visit.
Sincerely, A.R. Helms

The manager's reception on Wednesday evening was very convenient. It allowed me to have dinner and go directly to my room for some computer work for my job as well as to do some on-line school work. It was also a very cold evening so I didn't have to get out in the cold. Breakfast was nice too...Holiday Inn Express has the best cinnamon buns! All the staff were professional, courteous and helpful.

Please consider changing the address of this hotel. The actual address is different than the one listed on the website. It took us over 15 minutes to try to find it and then we had to pull over to call the hotel and ask for directions. This was the only inconvenience that we experienced with Holiday Inn. Otherwise, this was a good hotel to stay at in Jacksonville, NC.
