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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tesla61 Good Stay
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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cap335 I would go back again
My family booked 8 rooms for two nights. We were all very pleased with the staff, rooms, and amenities. The pool was great. The breakfast was the best I have ever had at any hotel. We did notice some dogs in the hotel. I understand that the hotel is pet friendly and I am a dog lover. However, two of our family had fleas in their beds. I am sure that the staff will address this issue. We will use this hotel again regardless of this issue. Thanks for an over all great stay!

The staff was very welcoming. The continental breakfast was wonderful. I enjoyed the cookies available at the front desk. I also enjoyed having the morning paper available outside the room of each guest in the morning. I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Mattoon. I will definitely stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rick311 Very noisy
The people there were great but my room was next to the stairway and every time someone used it it sounded like they were going to come thru the wall into my room and in the morning it sounded like there was a party dancing on my head. I know you can't make people be quiet but I've stayed at a lot of these motels and don't have this problem.

I found the room comfortable and clean with alot of amenities. Had plenty of breakfast foods, just not alot of low carb choices, just scrambled eggs 1 morning and scrambled eggs with ham 1 morning. The desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. Overall it would be a 9.9 in my book.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ext13 not very welcoming
We were told that we could not sit on the edge of the driveway the first night because we could not be in the roadway, but the next night an entire team blocked the driveway and barbecued in the parking lot. The entire team sat in the way of all traffic and nothing was said to them. The breakfast choices never changed. The pool was supposed to be closed to children after 10pm but that was not enforced.

Had a pleasant overnight visit here. Check-in staff was nice, lobby and outside was clean.
My room was nice and clean, bed and pillows were very comfortable. TV had some HD channels too. I also used one of the treadmills in the fitness center, no issues there.
Only problem was at the nearby Buffalo Wild Wings, poor service there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kate74 Best Hotel I have ever stayed in!!
Our two week stay in Mattoon at the Holiday Inn Express was perfect. I never met one staff that was not welcomeing, helpful and eager to please. Housekeeping went out of there way to clean our room on our schedule. The front desk was always smiling and ready to help in any way. I have stayed there every June since it was built and will continue to do so. Thanks for such a wonderful stay.

For a person which travels about 30-40 weeks a year, this is a great stay in a small area, but the hotel offers alll the big town amenities. Recommend to all.

I normally stay in Effingham, but decided to stay in Mattoon on this trip. I found the hotel to be very nice, clean, comfortable and a good value. In addition, it is less crowded in Mattoon than Effingham. This will be my overnight stay from now on.

Very nice newer hotel. Very clean and comfortable room. My only issue is that the breakfast room plastic ware is like I would expect in a gas station. It was very flimsy and not of what I expect from an IHC group hotel.
