Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coffee Snob Perfect for my traveling needs
This HI Express is conveniently located off of I-95 and close to shopping and restaurants. My party of 3 was participating in the Palm Coast Half Marathon and could not have a selected a more perfect property for our needs. It was comfortable, clean and very affordable. The staff was super friendly and allowed us to have a late check out so that we could come back to the hotel and shower after the race before we hit the road to come back home. I would definately stay here again.

Great to see the renovations at the property. We were the first in our room and found a few minor glitches, but so glad to see a "new" property to stay in as we use HIE often. Employees were very courteous upon check-in and while we were there. When traveling in the area, we will definately keep this property in mind for a return stay.

Only stayed one night to attend a function in the area. The staff was friendly and courteous, the bed to me was very, very comfortable. No outside sounds. The breakfast was worth the stay. Scrambled eggs, hot Danish and pancakes among other things.
Facility is under construction. Didn't hear or see any workers on the weekend. Looks like the pool needs a little work but didn't use it because of a quick stay. Convenient off of 95. Overall - I would stay here again when visiting the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sirlj Super friendly staff !
We stayed here on our way to Miami for our anniversary cruise. We arrived in the evening and had a super friendly greeting. When we arrived to the room, the air was off. Another stay where our arrival was to a warm room. This is discomforting to say the least. It did cool down pretty quick. The room was average for size. It did look like it was needing finishing at the wall bases. They were not dressed at the floors, and was seen clearly in the bathroom. We were told that the 3rd floor was under renovations. I do not know if this floor was done already or not, but it was not in great appearance. The bed was one of the tougher to sleep in beds for me. I have definitely had better sleeping nights before.
Then for breakfast... I inquired about the sausage gravy that I always look forward to when staying at a Holiday Inn Express. I was told they did not have it on the menu for that day to have prepared. I was confused, as I always have the gravy with biscuits when staying at this property chain. The food staff said they have a schedule of what is prepared on certain days. I am curious now if I only stay at this hotel chain on the right day, or is this something new to maybe save money??? Needless to say, the staff observed my disappointment, and prepared me some gravy without me asking for anything special as such. It was VERY kind of her and I appreciated it. Being allergic to eggs and not one to care for pancakes, this helped with my breakfast options. This is what I look for at breakfast here.
Overall, this hotel was not bad, just a couple undesired features. Hopefully they are still to finish the room walls at the floor base for appearance and start having the Holiday Inn Express staple of gravy and biscuits for breakfast all the time.
I would still recommend this location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigSteve Very enjoyable place to stay
Even though this property s being renovated, it was still clean and comfortable. The gal at the front desk pointed out a great restaurant to eat at along the coast. Everyone was very friendly and made my stay relaxing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Phil1234 Price was right
This Hotel is under construction and that was reflected adequately in the room rate. The business center was being refurbished and there was no computer available for use.
Basically, I received what I expected with a hotel during a remodel with one disturbing exception. I was checked by a poorly dressed desk clerk who did not acknowledge my Priority Club Status and seemed in a hurry to get back to something other than me. I saw two more desk clerks during my stay and although they were friendly, they were dressed in jeans with shirts hanging out. I was disappointed by the lack of professionalism displayed by the entire hotel staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chris28ohm best hotel experience ever....
From the moment we got there Lisa the front desk clerk treated us like we were family. We were having car trouble and had 2 front flat tires. To say that we were stressed, is puting it mildly. Lisa went above and beyond what any hotel had done for us. She gave us a great rate on a room and made me feel like priority club membership was something special.

Room was unsatisfactory. Drapes falling off the wall. No baseboards in bathroom and holes in the wall. Room was damp and smelt of mildew. No ventilation in bathroom (fans). I'm surprised Holiday Inn put their name on this hotel!

The hotel is currently being renovated and its looking very nice. Our room was comfortable and clean. The bathroom was in transition of being remodeled. I would recommend it and stay again, just wish I had known it was in renovation mode and a discount for the state it was in would have been nice.

We had a pleasant enough stay overnight. I booked online, knowing that the Holiday Inn Express hotels are a safe bet.
We have been Priority Club Members for years. When we arrived, it was evident by the dumpsters outside that some renovations were underway.
After checking in, we realized that the work was being done throughout the halls. Our room looked as if it also could use a makeover. I know this is not the high season, and repairs must be made, but would have appreciated a "heads up" on the internet site, or at least a comment at the front desk to say "We apologize for our appearance at this time".
Other than that, the hotel lived up to the Holiday Inn Express reputation we enjoyed in the past. I will not book online again for this reason, and will ask on the phone if construction is going on.

Staying in this place was very relaxing because the staff starting it off with great greetings. Then on top of this was the free water and chips. The hostess in the breakfast area was very polite and was very helpful in every way possible. The room was good and dark which made the night sleep a lot better. I will always stay at this place when traveling.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UnderwhelmedInPC Property under remold
I am a guest who uses a wheelchair.
Property was under an upgrade remodel and this was not mentioned on the property's website.
The room assigned to me was on the second floor of a three story building. The room was of extremely poor design. for one thing if i had to use the bathroom, I literally had to roll my chair into the hotel hallway because rather than the bathroom door opening to the room, the bathroom door opened to the hallway making it difficult for a wheelchair person to use the bathroom.
The reason given to me why I could not get a room on the first floor was they were in the midst of remolding the first floor.
The desk clerk did suggest the Hampton Inn as alternative. I declined the suggestion because I made the reservation through Holidex and since it was after 6p when I checked in I did not want to be charged that one night.

Hotel under renovation, however very little care in hiding areas under construction. Rooms occupied mid-completion, no baseboards so gaps from walls to floors. Plastic hanging to cover work area.

Literally they are ripping up the floor area in reception and in the vicinity on the ground floor. There was no mention of this when booking or any mention of disruption when checking in. The workmen use the entrance by the pool which, if you were using the pool, was not very private or pleasant. The rooms, especially the bathrooms, are in need of an update, but serve their purpose. Pleasant breakfast with plenty of choice. When checking out, again no mention or apology regarding the ongoing work, the sounds of which we could hear on the third floor!! Also a young child was seen wielding a hammer and chisel lifting the floor tiles in reception area!! No safety measures were in place, just a sign apologising for the dust!! Don't visit in the next couple of weeks if you want peace and quiet.

In spite of undergoing a remodel of the main lobby flooring, the desk staff outdid their selves in providing for our needs during our stay. The rooms were clean and quiet. The breakfast times ran smoothly, even though they had to be relocated to a conference room. The staff was friendly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jonc55 Maybe ok when it's finished
We weren't pre-warned but they are currently updating the hotel but during our visit there was a lot of dust and half finished areas. We are assuming that the bathroom on our suite was unfinished as the door had splashes of something on is and the skirtings were unfinished.
There were never many people at breakfast so we assume the hotel very full
The breakfast was the standard Holiday Inn Express offering but each day there was less available. On the last day the were no Biscuits, No Gravy, No Fruit, No Pancakes, two yoghurts (both Strawberry) 3 Cartons of milk.
I did get the impression that they were running down prior to a full closure to do the fefurb, but could be wrong and it may just have been bad organisation
Not the hotels fault but our room had a child next door that was constantly grizzling and crying from the time we got in until way past 11 each night before starting again around 7:30. Then they put a yapping dog on the other side.
Would I stay again?, probably not.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rosemarie7500 Exceeded All Expectations!!
After reading past reviews on this site I have to admit I was apprehensive. But we love Holiday Inn Express Hotels and this was the only one in Palm Coast, so I said a prayer, crossed my fingers and booked our room. Yes, when we walked in there was construction going on in the lobby, but they were cleaning up and there was no more work during our stay. But we figured we were renting the room, not the lobby! Lisa at the desk was great! I asked about refrigerators and microwaves in the rooms and she said the regular rooms did not have those amenities yet so she gave us a suite which included both. I asked about late check out and they were very liberal. She handed us snacks that made my kids very happy. All I can say about our room is WOW!! Clean, beautiful and huge. We like Holiday Inn Express for their breakfast choices and we were not disappointed. There was something for everyone in the family. Thank you Lisa and everyone there who made our stay so special.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Craftymom1 Good service while under construction
The hotel lobby although under construction has great promise with the hand-painted curved ceiling. I was surprised that only suites, and not standard rooms, had refrigerators as indicated in the AAA book. This caused us to upgrade our room, and thankfully there was one left. Since tile was being laid in the laundry area, we were unable to washing machine. Breakfast was very good with a variety of items, pastry, breads, cereals, yogurt, and hard eggs. I am hopeful that when construction is finished, this will be a more pleasurable place to rest. Overall, it was still a very good value for the money.

We have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express on numerous occasions and have found it to be very comfortable and the staff very accomodating. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is large and varied, and all of the staff are very helpful. We travel for business and appreciate the amenities at this locale. We would recommend it to all travelers who are looking for a very nice, very affordable place to stay.
