This has been a gettaway destination of the past few years and each time we come we feel like we are coming home and when we leave, we feel energized and ready for the next moment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by fryods Solid room and location, awful internet
I would write a traditional review for this hotel, but because there are many things great about it, but also not great, I feel it'd be easier to simply list out the pros and cons.
Pros: Great hotel staff- If anyone passed me in the halls, such as the housekeeping, they'd check with me to make sure I was stocked on everything I needed. The hotel desk would also greet, or wish a good morning/day when passing through or heading out the door. The staff in the dining area was also very friendly and welcoming.
Location- This hotel is on a main road, but fortunately I couldn't tell; there was no road noise in my room! It's not far from restaurants, and if you're staying here for the base nearby, it's a short drive, as well.
Cons: Internet- I can't stress this one enough. For being called "high speed" internet, it sure doesn't meet what is officially considered high speed. I did a speed test and got 0.68 Mbps. (For reference, the FCC considers 25 Mbps to be "high speed"). Of course, that speed only matters if you can manage a stable connection. There are multiple routers to connect through, yet all of them will randomly disconnect; I was constantly changing from router to router. Hopefully others will have better luck, but if not, you're better off running off your phones mobile hotspot here.
Room itself- The bed was very comfortable, and the dresser and desk were in good condition, but the computer chair was tearing badly at the seams. Also, the ceilings are very low here. I'm 6'3" and nearly touched the ceiling in the shower.
Overall, this Holiday Inn Express does what it can; the staff are excellent and welcoming, which I would recommened this location on alone. But the internet, for me personally, is a total negative. Fortunately during my stay there were brand new mattresses being put into rooms, so perhaps that is a sign of what's to come.

After a long 12 hour journey from the cold Northern region of the country, It was so nice to be greeted by the staff of the Holiday Inn Express in Jacksonvile, N.C. The room was very clean and comfortable. I especially enjoyed the variety at Breakfast! Would absolutely stay there again!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tyme4Me Not quite up to par.
I was really disappointed with this stay, especially in comparison to other Hotel Inn Express stays. The bathtub and one of the walls were both dirty. A swipe with a wet cloth on both showed that a good cleaning would have done the trick. I was there 3 nights for business, but never had either cleaned adequately by the Housekeeping staff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Docmom2009 Highly disappointed
I stay at HIs all the time and this one was the worst I've stayed at. The lobby was upgraded and nice. Misleading. The room had low popcorned ceilings, the beds were comfy but the bathroom was dirty. Like actual toothpaste and water spots on the mirror, soap scum in the tub, etc. The lamps were rusty and didn't work. This was the oddest combination of things that were new and gross nasty things. Also the pool! There was nasty floating swamp looking garbage, debris and whatnot covering the surface of the pool. I wouldn't even consider bathing my dog in it! For the same price, I would stay at the hotel up the street but I decided in the HI due to my awesome past experiences. Bad choice.
