The only negative was that they were re-tiling the hallway and getting to and from the room was very messy. Otherwise, a typically good stay with HI-Ex

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dan1970 Rude patron
While waiting to check-in behind two other gentleman last week, I unfortunately had to witness an extremely rude, muscularly challenged, female paramedic scream at the front desk agent. She was upset because she was unable to connect to the Wi-Fi. The same Wi-Fi that I had connected to every day for the previous two weeks while in town for work, the same Wi-Fi I connected to shortly after checking in that day. The same Wi-Fi I'm typing on right now, a week later.
This "lady", I use the term very loosely, actually thought the agent should walk away from three customers checking-in to explain to her how Wi-Fi passwords and computer settings work.
I ran into the same type lady today. Except, I work for a large utility, and when I knocked on this lady's door and identified myself, and she responded "We're not interested.". I get to say "I'm not asking, I'm telling.". She really liked them apples. She was so used to being rude to people it was a reflex.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Henderson127 ****UNDER CONSTRUCTION****
The facility is under construction and we were not notified of this at the time we made the reservations. Although the work crews are only there from 9am-6pm it is definitely noticeable at all times. The paint in the swimming pool is pealing and was found attaching to my kids when they got out of the pool. I had found dead stink bugs in the corner of the room and the lighting is very bad in the kitchen area of my "suite". There was only one TV in the suite as well which seems kinda silly if I am paying the extra for a larger space. The internet is sparse and did not work in the business center at all. When I had asked for help to print some documents I was told by the front desk person that she would be right down. After 10 minutes of waiting, I had gone to the desk and she told me she had forgotten about me. This may be a great hotel when the renovations are complete and the staff retrained but in the mean time I will not stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ohio Girl 2014 Good location, friendly, helpful staff and okay rates.
The staff was excellent upon check-in. Made a big impression on me! Lobby and Fitness Centers were under construction. We had our breakfasts in a meeting room. Everything was still very nice. I don't think we got a discount for the disruption of the premises, but the rates were better than some locations. However, we were asked at booking if the renovations made a difference and did we still want to use this facility. So we were warned ahead of time; very thoughtful of the booking company. The construction didn't matter to us. We were never going to use the pool, but others had. We were told it gets improved next. We were able to use our AAA discount. Maybe some attention to hallway vacuuming would be my only real comment.

The biggest disappointment with our stay was the lack of cleanliness in our room. It appeared as though the room hadn't been stayed in for some time due to the amount of dust that was in the bathroom. The floor in the bathroom appeared to have not been swept thoroughly. Despite this, my family and I were flexible due to the hotel undergoing a modernization of the rooms and amenities.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jrighteousfatih Great Place to Stay
This is a great convienent hotel to stay. The rooms are clean and renovated where you can still smell the new room smell. The first floor and common areas are under construction for this hotel. Outisde of that the rooms are amazing with the nice beds and bathrooms. The only thing I did not like was the yellow warning lable on the TV mentioning the fine if you steal the TV. I felt this was a little tacky for such a nice hotel. The location is great. Also the amenities was nice as well. The staff is friendly at check in. However, the guy manager was unfriendly. When I was ready to check out he ignored me and continued to speak with his staff. The staff member interrupted him to acknowledge me. This gave me the impression that he did not care or apologize for the delay to check out. Overall the hotel was nice for the location and highly recommend it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappy Guest w/infant Poor Customer Service and Room quality
The original room we were put in smelled of smoke (and it was a non-smoking room). We were offered a "spray bottle" to mask the smell but after some discussion with the front desk they moved us to a new room. The front desk staff wasn't the friendliness and they never once apologized for the inconvenience of having to move to a new room. The new room we were put in was spacious and overall fairly clean. Although, I did notice some grime in the tub.
Regarding sleep quality: IT WAS HORRIBLE. The bed was comfortable but the walls are paper thin. We heard every footstep of the room above us. Also, the walls would rattle when the next room's door would shut.

The staff was friendly, but the stay was not great.
The room was hard to cool down, the internet was slow, and the room had a strong odor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PackerMike68 Renovation
I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel considering the renovation work that was going on. We stayed in a recently renovated room, so everything was great (except the night light in the bathroom did not work). They did a great job at separating the renovation work areas from the open areas.
The pool leaves a lot to be desired. Nothing like on the pictures. My three boys didn't even want to swim in it. Yes, three boys walked away from the pool. Little disappointing considering that was one of the reasons I chose this hotel.

Like most HIE's the value for your money is low. Rooms are nice but too expensive. Lots of noise with all the contractors made it hard to rest.

After I checked-in I went up the elevator to my room, as soon as I stepped out of the elevator I could smell paint fumes, and the smell of drywall dust, it smelled that way the entire time, 4:30 pm until 6pm I could hear construction on the first floor, pounding, sawing, and a screw gun being used. At 8 am the construction started again, the fixtures in the room has a rough surface from the over spray of paint. The smell was the worst of all, I woke up with a sore throat and a headache. The parking lot had construction equipment parked on it, along with sink counter tops and other room parts. I will never stay there again

This is a hotel we have used several times in taking road trips across the Midwest. It is, above all, convenient for an overnight stop on the way home, and we appreciate its cleanliness and good room sizes. The complimentary breakfast, too, is superior.

Picked this place to take a break during a long drive. Was fully satisfied with my stay. Very well maintained property. Carpets, walls, furniture, etc. were clean. The staff were very friendly. The parking lot is well lit, which provides an additional sense of safety. I also saw a police vehicle monitoring the area from a neighboring business' parking lot. The free hot breakfast was great - the manager was so sweet and asked me to pack a box for the road. Overall, I would highly recommend this place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cyclist1 Nice, but a few glitches
While this facility was, in general, quite satisfactory, we experienced several "irritants": They had no local map, no list of restaurants, nor a hot tub. In addition, the orange juice at breakfast was terribly watered down, there were not enough electrical outlets in the room, and the WiFi connection kept getting dropped.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Big White Truck Nice staff
Enjoyed our stay but for one complaint, which turned out to be significant: The room was very warm (yes, it was very cold outside), uncomfortably so. We had turned the heat down to 65 but it seemed to stay in the 70s. I couldn't sleep well; actually got up at 1:30 a.m. to turn the unit to a/c, which didn't seem to do much.
Room was nice and clean, bed was comfortable, breakfast was nice (omelets, canadian bacon or ham, etc.).
Entryway was very slushy, as if the staff hadn't done a very good job of clearing it, but that's picking nits.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ConstantlyTraveling Good Hotel for Area
Hotel is in a good location for access to Interstate and to Boardman, Ohio. Restaurants, Shopping Mall and walk in clinic are close by. Express breakfast was excellent and all of the staff, from front desk to housekeeping and breakfast were very knowledgable, nice and efficient. Apparently the hotel is scheduled for renovation. The beds were older and were not what I was accustomed to at a Holiday Inn Express. I had no security concerns whatsoever. We had a noisy family (kids running and jumping on the floor above) and the staff corrected the situation immediately. TV Channel selection was good.
Overall cleanliness for the room and bathroom I rate a 3 out of 5. It appeared that something had been dumped on the backside of the bathroom door and had never been cleaned.
I would stay there again if I was in the area. Staff was immediately responsive to any thing I asked or needed.

This hotel was chosen for its proximity to the funeral I was attending. It was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and courteous. I was on the first floor and did hear guests in the room above me walking around in the middle of the night; however, that is to be expected and I was not bothered by it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nana2Go Mixed experience
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in North Lima, Ohio both driving to Philadelphia and driving back, 8 days later. Overall, it's a satisfactory stopping-off place for this sort of I-80 drive. The first night we stayed there, all was well BECAUSE we were on the 3rd/top floor. Coming back, however, we were on the 2nd floor and at 4:30 in the morning, the folks above us decided to get up and start packing. Turns out they'd been there 2 weeks so they had a LOT of packing to do, which involved walking around, opening and shutting drawers, etc. From 4:30 to 5:30 a.m. We faced a 10-hour drive the next day ... on little sleep. Mike at the front desk was great when I complained at 5:30 and he tried to get them to stop, which they did -- for 15 minutes. So the staff was terrific; Mike was truly apologetic and helpful. But if you are on the 2nd floor, you are at risk if you have a noisy person above you. Ask to be on the 3rd floor!
