Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Prairie Girl 218 Our Favorite Hotel
We have stayed in this hotel more than 60 nights over the past three years. From the time we check in until we check out several days later, we are always pleased with the experience. Most impressive is the entire staff. The management/desk team, breakfast hostesses, and housekeepers are courteous, helpful, efficient and cheerful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast is always good, with a variety of food choices and recently even more healthy foods have been added. We are always happy to return to this hotel.

We were in town to attend a softball tournament. The staff allowed us to check in early and check out late to accommendate the game schedule.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gym 21 Good room but poor breakfast choices
The hotel was nice but front desk staff not very pleasant. Did not acknowledge my priority club status nor offer any amenity. The breakfast bar had less than the usual choices I come to expect at normal HIEX.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jack Darling Everything was as wonderful as last year's stay.
The staff at this Holiday Inn Express is truly exceptional in their professionalism, politeness, caring, and compassionate offers to always be of service to the guests.
John, the Maintenance man greeted us warmly from our stay last year. He went above and beyond the call of duty by praying not only for great weather for our granddaughter's graduation/honors assembly from Loyola, but for a dry and safe trip back home to Illinois. Two hours after our bringing in the last piece of luggage, we had a deluge of rain that closed schools and flooded roads. That is known as a direct pipeline to our Father in Heaven.
We would book a reservation at this great Inn in a heart beat!
P.S Loved the popcorn!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kitty14 A little unhappy
Always love my stay at your place, but I was a tad dissatisfied this time.
The television went out during the Bulls game, and when I called the front desk the young man more or less said he didn't know what to do about it. I got over that. No biggie.
Saturday morning my daughter and I left our room by noon only to come back @ 5pm to find it was never cleaned. That was a bit embarrassing especially since my daughter brought a couple friends back to our room.
Everyone is always so helpful and pleasant that it seems to make up for this error.
Thanks for listening.

As a local family, when we don't have enough beds for visitors, this is always our first choice for our overnight guests. The hotel is clean, well managed and the staff is always friendly. Great place to stay! Pet-friendly too is a big plus!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Schaefs63 Great value if business brings you to Mattoon.
If business or fun bring you to or through Mattoon, The Holiday Inn Express is a great place to serve as a home base. Clean, contemporary and convenient make it a great place to end and start the day.

Heat wouldn't regulate. Pillows too soft and
mattress so soft roll to middle--does not
happen in other Holiday Inn Express.

A jewel in the middle of Illinois. Had a wonderful time for dinner and visiting the city. We have traveled this road many times and never considered staying here. Was recognized when checking in. Front desk person was very helpful with directions and recommendations. Room was ready, clean, and comfortable

Everything was lovely with one exception.
We made our reservation over a month in advance to insure that all of our rooms would be together. That was not the case.

The rate was the BEST I've paid in some time (and we stay at a variety of HIE's throughout the year). The hotel was new and clean. Wish I could take this location with me EVERYWHERE we travel.

I have stay at this hotel often. They are always consistent with their services and cleanliness. The staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms are always clean. The breakfast bar is clean and food is good for hotel food. I will continue to use this hotel for my business travels to Mattoon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jim46410 Always a good stay
The staff is very friendly, the facilities are well taken care of. Mattoon has some chain restaurants that other HIE's don't have in the same general area. Come here for work once a month.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SilverEagle Rude desk clerk
I've never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express that had such rude desk clerks. When I arrived, no one was at the front desk. I waited for a minute or two, then called out if anyone was here. A young man came around the corner and acted as though I had bothered him at something. The only things he said to me was an explanation of what to initial and sign on the check in form, and then "you need a bottled water for being a Priority Club member?" (exact words).
Watch out for the utensils at the breakfast, too. They store the tongs for grabbing the biscuits on top of the biscuits themselves, right under the warming lamps. I burned a finger while picking up the tongs.
I passed by this hotel on my return trip through central Illinois and stayed at the Hotel across the street. I travel through here twice weekly, the Hotel Inn across the street will get my business from now on.

The toilet in our initial room hadn't been cleaned or flushed. When we called the desk, we were immediately moved to another room along with profuse apologies from the manager.
We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CPAVIC As advertised
Hotel and grounds in excellent condition. Close access to restaurants, shopping, and I57. Staff friendly and attentive. Internet and daily newspapers an added plus. Breakfast was plentiful with many choices. Bacon not the best. We will use this facility whenever we are in Mattoon.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by avisitor2013 Cancelled my reservation
My reservation was made approx. 10 months in advance. When I arrived, I had no room & was told central reservations had cancelled my reservation the day prior (I later called Central Reservations and they showed my reservation still open). I was sent to a competitor's hotel about 5 miles away on Mattoon Holiday Inn's expense. The room was OK, but I was next to a room with 2 dogs howling. Not a restful time.
When I talked to Central Reservations, the reservationinst asked if I woul like to be contacted by the Manager at Mattoon & I said, "Yes". I was told that it would happen within 48 hours. Five days later, I received this survey thanking me for my stay & asking how it was, as if I actually had stayed there. I'm thinking that I was NOT a valued customer. ikely won't stay there again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rldad1 No room at the Inn
I had a confirmed reservation for a handicapped room for one night. After an 8 hour drive I arrived to find out, according to the staff on duty, that they gave my room away to someone who walked in and said they were going to stay more than one night. Apparently they do not know what a confirmed reservation means. My wife , who is severely handicapped, could not use the toilet in the room they gave us without my help, due to no bars and she could not clean up. In addition, her walker barely could move in the room. We specifically made reservations well in advance to ensure that we had a handicapped accessible room. If Holiday Inns do not choose to recognize confirmed reservations then we will have to use a competitor who does. I was never acknowledged as a Rewards Club member and when I looked at my bill, I discovered that they had used an incorrect Rewards number. I will never go back to this property again. This is a nice place but you can't trust them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Decede Enjoyed our stay!
Absolutely positive experience at the Matoon Holiday Inn Express. Staff pleasant & efficient. Room & bath both spacious & clean. Loved the Bath & Body Works toiletries! Breakfast buffet was a plus, with nice selection of food for the space allotted. I would definitely recommend this establishment & will stay here again if ever in this area! Only one small complaint. No vent fan in bathroom & bathroom mirror fogged up terribly from the shower steam.
