Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by opey Very polite and attentive
The whole motel was very clean and inviting. The staff was vey helpful and courteous. Rooms were cleaned everyday. Note was left from housekeeping the she hoped we enjoyed our stay and to have a safe trip home. I have never had the experience before. (that really made us feel important) I would recommend anyone to stay there.

I travel here about once a month and pick this spot because the staff is friendly and I can count on having a good stay each time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HET driver What a let down...
Arrived at the property in the last minutes of the day and was greeted by a drunken wedding party smoking and drinking from open beverage containers. The entrance was adorned with a tatty ORiely Auto parts banner which obviously was representative of some of the guests. ( NASCAR ?)
The desk clerk was a competent young man who apologized for the crowd creating cigarette smoke and blocking the entrance. I have breathing difficulties so do need second hand smoke to compound my illness. Soon after my lobby entry, a guest (mother of the bride) entered the lobby with two other women to stabilize her drunkenness.
Breakfast was "The Worst" of multiple property stays over the past three weeks. The components perpetration and public access were unmanaged and available so multiple personal contact with food stuffs was unavoidable. The boiled eggs were obviously several days old. The powdered eggs poorly prepped and the sausage tasted of old age.
During our time in the breakfast area there was NO wiping of vacated tables and restocking was based on patrons complaints.
Lastly, for me; the business center computer did not work. Reported this to desk manager ... Oh well IT guy coming today. ... No reservations capability for me = brand change tonight! Miffed and maybe Mad by days end.
The hotel public areas and our suite were very nice and well kept.
As a retired business's owner I suggest an unannounced franchisee management review and property operations inspection.
? Time for me to move to Marriott?

Room was so clean and nice! Had a very quiet, restful sleep. It did not have the loud annoying air conditioners that most hotel rooms have. Will definitely stay there again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dayhiker Very impressed
Very impressed with the overall look and cleanliness. Thought and detail had been put into the furnishings of the lobby, breakfast room and rooms themselves. The staff immediately responded to a slight problem we had. The clerk was very friendly as well as all the other staff and made our stay very relaxing.

Great stop along our road trip to Georgia. Our stop was random, but so happy we did. The front desk personnel were pleasant and very helpful. The hotel is convenient to a number of restaurant and we selected La Carreta. Quite good. The hot breakfast was very satisfying and the biscuits and rolls were delicious.

I've been coming to this hotel for business since 2012. I've never had a bad experience, from the comfortable beds, great breakfast, and attentive staff. I continue to come here because of all these reasons, and see no reason to go anyplace else. Convenient to my work site and love the morning staff when I check out. So polite and friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cheetahmom Great job!
Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Always said hello when you came in and a smile on their faces.
The room was bigger than you find in many hotels and allowed us plenty of space as a family to enjoy the stay and not feel cramped. Paid less than another hotel right down the street and got queen beds instead of the 2 twins the other one offers.
Beds were super comfy as were the pillows - selection of soft and more firm. Everything was clean, bathroom was very clean, plenty of towels provided.
The free breakfast is not your typical cereal and pastries. They go all out with ham, sausage gravy, biscuits, omlets, fruits, cereals, pastries, oatmeal, yogurt...selection was wonderful!
I will definitely stay here again if in the area. This was a very nice Holiday Inn Express!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 A Comfortable Home Away from Home
We had a suite and it was terrific for our needs - we stayed four nights. The combination of cleanliness and relaxing spaciousness were delivered in combination with great furnishings and décor and a high-capacity air conditioning system -- when I wanted it cold it really produced. The whole building is smoke-free. Our activity commitment ran from 8:00am to 9:00pm so we were really pleased to have a pleasant place to relax, rejuvenate and rest.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeano61 Very enjoyable stay
The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Breakfast foods were abundant. The eggs were not overly tasty as I think they use the reconstituted eggs, but I was still happy to be able to eat something without leaving the hotel. The pancake maker is awesome and I just wish I had one at home!! Kids ran up and down the hall late at night, but that is not the hotel's fault as there are signs posted asking people to abstain from doing so. Hopefully my "little note" I left the rude guests under their door will remind them to keep their kids in check when staying overnight at a hotel. I would highly recommend this establishment!!

My room was quiet, clean, and cool. I had a desk to work on, a small couch to relax and watch TV without getting into the comfortable king sized bed. Internet was great and fast enough for both my business and personal browsing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by retired1946 Comfortable with great breakfast selection.
Room was large, clean, and comfortable. Hotel in general was quiet and well maintained. We were especially impressed with the breakfast in the Great Room. The gentleman in charge took obvious pride in keeping the selection and cleanliness in top shape. Housekeeping anticipated our needs, even replacing light bulb we hadn't noticed being out and adding an additional pillow (they were very comfortable as was the bed). Appreciated the relatively quite A/C unit and quietness of the Hotel at night. We have stayed in more than a half dozen hotel/motels in the area and this rates at the top for value, although it is not the least expensive. We will definitely stay there again when we are down to visit the kids, grandchildren, and great grandson.

The overall stay is good & I will be back. However, there was pipes or metal knocking noise throughout the day & night. I was in room 315. You could really hear it in the bathroom. Always a great place to stay & the minestrone soup/stew was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doug324 Great Room, but...
Suite was superb, but we never could get the wireless internet connection to work. We alternated using the cable, so many thanks for placing a cable in the desk drawer. The signal to the 5th floor must be too weak as we could find the wireless, but it would not maintain connection. Staff and cleanliness was outstanding as always......Doug, Fairfax VA

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Barbseptember Change in greetings!
This is a good hotel to book for a variety of reasons, but I've noticed the past two times I have checked in that I am not greeted as a Rewards Club member, nor am I offered the usual cookie and water as in the past. Once might be explained by a busy employee, but twice makes me think that there is a change in the practice at this location. Other IHG hotels still greet me as a Rewards Club member.
On the other hand, the rooms are nice, the location is good, and the price is fair value.

I stay here about once a month, tried the other chains close by, but the staff here keeps me coming back. Even if I find a problem with a room, they take care of it. The breakfast is varied enough and has a lot of choices to satisfy. Great coffee.
