Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean Freak Mom Comfortable bed
I usually have problems sleeping in hotel rooms but this one was very comfortable. The A/C grill vibrated rather loudly is the only bad thing. The room was very clean and I easily notice dirt.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Lexington KY. We love Holiday Inn Express, you know your room will be clean and welcoming and the staff are always helpful and friendly!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rockyuno Great manager and staff
Clean hotel with the friendliest manager and staff you will ever meet.
The location is great and the breakfast is out of this world.
The beds and pillows are great, they have 4 different pillows that you can choose from when your head hits the pillow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dollar Dug Bathroom starting to show its age, paper pealing
The bathroom was starting to show its age. The wall covering in the shower area was pealing just a bit. But overall, the bathroom was clean. The rest of the room was very clean and fresh, no issues at all.

We use this hotel when we come to visit family in the area. We usually eat breakfast at the Bob Evans that is within walking distance of the hotel. This weekend was graduation weekend at MVNU so the price of the room was hiked sky high. Otherwise nice hotel.

This is a wonderful hotel. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. The morning breakfast is quite nice and well maintained. The rooms are clean and quiet. Many nearby restaurants. Very convenient to Kenyon College. I recommend this hotel highly and have stayed there many times over the past four years..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buddy19 Great stay.
I enjoyed my experience here. The only thing I'll mention is about the room. It was a handicapped room. There was plenty of space in the bathroom for a wheelchair, although we didn't use one, but the toilet is very close to the wall and the towel rack was right above the toilet. We had to sit sideways on the toilet so we didn't bump our heads when getting up. Some people are "wide" and with it so close to the wall, it was uncomfortable. Towel rack needs to be moved, for sure, and when you rehab the rooms in the future, move the toilet away from the wall a little.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ron-sandtown Passing thru-nice place to stay
The people at the front desk and support staff were exceptional; friendly, accomodating and efficient.
Rooms were clean and comfortable.
The one drawback is not having a fitness center on site, but they had one day passes to the local YMCA which my daughter and I used. The YMCA is in the center of town, a couple miles from hotel, but was adequate although a bit aged.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mary S. Mt. Vernon
Out of the 3 hotels in the area, this by far is the best, although the rate is high. We stayed in the jacuzzi room, and although the jacuzzi was AMAZING, it was hard to get in and out of, because the platform around the jacuzzi was wide. If there were rails to hold on to so you could get in, would have been better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KenyonProspect Great place to stay while visiting Kenyon College
Our family stayed at the Mt. Vernon Holiday Inn while our high school senior toured Kenyon College. (All the hotels in Gambier were sold out.) This hotel was clean and easy to find. It took less than ten minutes to get to Gambier. I would stay here again.
The roads and neighborhoods around the property were great for running too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by collegeprowler Good choice
Close to Kenyon College and easy to find at night.
Room was a little too hot despite it being cold outside.
Wish there were two sinks-- 1 in the small bathroom and the other outside of it, rather than just one outside of it.
Comfortable bed and pillows.
Breakfast offerings were just fine.
Will likely stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by twinswimmom Okay if there is no other choice
We were in town for a major swim meet which happens every year, so the hotel should know and be prepared well in advance for the event. This wasn't the case. We waited for 15 minutes to check-in because there was only 1 person at the front desk.
Once we were finally in the room, we found it to be very hot. We tried to regulate the temperature, but all it did was blow a freezing cold breeze across the top of the beds. The beds were AWFUL. The walls are paper thin, so you can hear every person walking up and down the hall as well as the people above, beside, and below you.
Breakfast was suppose to start at 6 - nope. The one person working was still trying to get things out and ready at 6:30. She did apologize and said that she would have come in early if someone had told her that there was a large group leaving early.
Will we stay again? Absolutely not. We stayed only because we wanted to make it a nice weekend for the kids. We'll be driving to Mt. Vernon the day of the swim meet or staying elsewhere. Ditto for many of the other parents of swimmers on our team. That's the thing management team - if you mess up an event where teams are staying, the entire team doesn't return. We also have hours to sit around and talk at the meet. What do you think we shared? Yep, our experience at your property.

Good value, would be a true value added to always have hot coffee available. Property has desk chairs that are tired. The hotel is very busy and early booking is necessary. Excellent bedding,
