Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Navy Family Impressed!
We were a little worried about this hotel not being right off of 95, but we are so happy we tried it! The staff was so welcoming to us and the room was so much better than we expected. It was clean and updated. We really loved that especially because we had a puppy with us. Normally, pet rooms are gross! Not here. I have zero complaints. The free breakfast was also awesome. They had everything you could want. We enjoyed fruit, bagels, eggs, pancakes, yogurt.....you name it. Very impressed. We will absolutely stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Samtyl Beds are comfortable
The room was a bit noisy this time because of the other guest in the room next door. His conversation was loud and up late at night and early in the morning. My son said that the room was not as clean - other people's hair in the bed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Zolity Great potential, needs a few fixes
Not sure how new this hotel is, as it seems it's fairly new.
It has great potential, it's either new or newly remodeled.
On the down side, there were urine stains left on the toilet seat, which I imagine should have been cleaned by the staff.
Also, the electronic thermostat was completely not working at all, as the weather was warming up and we needed to cool the room a little bit.
Oddly too, the toilet seat was unusually small for the newer toilet.
The front desk person did acknowledge that I was a Platinum member, which is fine.
The hotel is about 15-20 away from I-95 if your seeking hotels off of of the highway.
As stated above, the hotel has great potential if a few of the fixable things can be remedied.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ArnieBarnie13 Great room and friendly staff!!
The manager Mr. James went out of his way to make sure my family was well taken care of! My family of three myself, my wife, and one month old son were welcomed with open arms and treated like family. I only live three miles from this hotel, however, due to painting within my home it was necessary to stay here for two nights with our newborn in tow. I stay in hotels over 100 nights a year due to my job and wish they all were as nice and clean as this Holiday Inn Express!! If you are considering a stay anywhere near Pembroke, NC then this is the place to stay. Thanks to all of the staff for an enjoyable stay!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mml48 Wonderful staff, excellent free breakfast.
I was greeted by staff who remembered me from last year. They were very accommodating in getting my students grouped together to foster easier, more efficient chaperoning. They were very patient with my students, some of whom had never stayed in a hotel before. The staff took the time to answer questions about the beautiful artwork in the hotel.
The property is beautiful with lots of artwork from local artisans. A beautiful display of the Lumbee culture.

We have been coming to this hotel since my son moved down to Red Springs in Feb. 2013 at least once a month. Everyone has always been so courtesy, friendly and very accommodating in all of our requests. They make me feel at home. Always enjoy the stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nursienurse4 Great stopover hotel
We stayed here as a stop over on our way to Myrtle Beach. The hotel is beautiful, easy to find, and the staff was wonderful. The room was clean. We would definitely stay here again. Coffee and breakfast were fantastic as well in the morning.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by triadwheels Probably the best in the area
Probably the best hotel in the area but not really up to the standards of Holiday Inn Express. For a four year old hotel, it was semi dirty. Elevators dirty, staff inappropriately dressed.
I really don't like it when the hotel staff gets on the elevator before the guest. One of the staff walked me to the laundry room so that I could put my used pool towels in the basket in the laundry room. They ( the staff ) were not interested in going above and beyond.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DTRAIN58 Comfortable bed and great service
Anytime I travel to the area I always stay at this hotel...The front desk staff is very polite, and always welcome you with a smile. The cleaning staff does an excellent job of cleaning the rooms and won't hesitate to get you an extra pillow or two if you need one. I travel 250 days a year around North and South Carolina and this is by far my favorite hotel...I highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SouthernBeachBum Great Service & very Friendly :)
What can I say, every time we travel we use HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS, or the other hotels of the IHG Group. I've been staying at Holiday Inns ever since the 1960's when myself and family always drove to Florida every summer to visit my Grandparents, for my Dad was born and raised in Tampa, Florida and we all loved Holiday Inn then and still do till this very day! Thank you all for the very friendly service I had all these years at your Holiday Inns, I'll never forget the great memories! Thank you, Stephen S. Phillips & Family :)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Blackbutterfly73 Would definitely stay again
I only stayed for one night for a family reunion. Wish the stay was longer because the hotel was A-1. I was able to check in early, hotel was neat, staff very friendly. Wasn't able to swim due to the weather but my room overlooked the pool and it was so inviting looking. I'm a stickler for a nice bathroom and I loved the bathrooms and the beds were so comfortable. Only downside is that there isn't much to do within close proximity to the hotel. However the family dinner was held at Mariani's which was about 7 miles away from the hotel and the food/service was excellent.

The staff was extremely helpful especially with helping us find a place to eat and finding a local bank for my son to open up an account (he is moving to the area). Hotel appearance, clean, fresh and neat. I highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ibanez2551 Close to UNCP
This hotel is only a half mile from UNCP. Breakfast was good, especially for a hotel breakfast. Rooms were clean and modern (shower handle fell off but snapped right back on..no issue).
Staff is very friendly!
Only issue is the business center. This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. While I thoroughly enjoyed the stay, both times the business center was not working. First time, computers were broken. Second, the printer was broken.
Overall, a good experience and I recommend for anyone staying in the Pembroke area!

Great staff at this hotel - will do anything they can to make everything right. On a previous stay, they even tried to help us when we had mechanical problems with our mobile lab bus!!! We ended up having to leave early and they cancelled our reservations without hesitation - understood our situation!! Rooms are clean and comfortable, including the bathroom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EDM3 Best place to stay
It is hard to beat the friendliness and customer-orientation of the staff at this HIX. And the hotel itself is clean and comfortable, with more amenities than you would expect for the low price. I recommend this location of HIX most highly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crusky Off the beaten path but worth it.
We were driving up 95 from Georgia to Northern Virginia and we were looking for a Holiday Inn that took dogs. We headed off 95 into the country side. My husband was full of doubt as we drove through farm land but when we got to Penbroke what a surprise. The front desk sent us to a great seafood restaurant. And they offered to tell us a faster route back to the highway without being asked.
The hotel was lovely and everything was in working order. Not worn out by the 95 volume travelers.. They ran out of Cinnamon buns (which is a very important part of our visits to Holiday Inn Expresses) but there were a ton of kids there.that had hit breakfast hard,.
We will go out of our way to stay there agfain.

This Hotel is almost like brand new. Very Clean and nicely decorated. Carpets were very clean and seemed new. The only complaint I have w/this Hotel is the bathroom sink, which is too high and on an awkward arrangement. Everything else was awesome! Breakfast was good too.

We really enjoyed our stay at the HI Express. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The warm breakfast and pool were an added bonus! It's located nearby Papa Bill's restaurant which has some of the best BBQ and side dishes in America!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SoBe1Sparky Other Holiday Inn Expresses should train their workers here!
Ever feel like you are the hotel's only customer? Like to be treated with smiles and a genuine warm welcome? Want to hear as you leave, "Thanks again!"
This property in the little town of Pembroke, NC, just west of Lumberton, NC, is one of those exceptional gems of hospitality. The people just like to see you, want you to feel welcomed, and want you to return...soon, if you please. My recommendation: It's well worth going a bit out of your way to stay here.
I visited 11 IHG (parent company of Holiday Inn Express) hotels for a total of 17 nights on the my spring road trip, and this one tied as being the best, most enjoyable stay. Almost universally, the HIX product is of high quality featuring the pool, exercise room, breakfast room with hot, fresh foods, free parking, spacious welcoming lobby, etc. The rooms themselves are clean and well maintained, many with micros and refrigerators. I like the consistency of this high-quality product. As HI used to say decades ago, "The best surprise is no surprise." I would change it to "Our hospitality is consistently high quality."
There were no issues whatsoever at this property. Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves at work, from the front desk managers and clerks to the lady planting the summer flowers at the entrance outdoors. The breakfast lady checks to make sure you have everything you need to have a great start to the day.
The accommodations are standard HI Express, nice mattresses, LCD TVs, free wifi, lots of adjacent electrical outlets, full bath with amenities, plenty of soft absorbent towels and wash cloths, etc. It was well maintained and spotless.
I found out while I was there that Pembroke is predominately a native American community, without casino, thank goodness. For being such a small town, it has a great self-serve car wash and plenty of "average Joe" restaurants to meet your tastes. If ever in the area again, I will be sure to return.
That "thanks again" I heard gently shouted by the front desk manager as the automatic sliding doors closed demonstrated the hospitality and warmth of the Holiday Inn Express Pembroke.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Beautiful Hotel and Fabulous Customer Service
I am a female who travels a lot for business and on this particular trip was traveling alone. The front desk associate that checked me in was careful not to say my room out loud and even went as far as shielding my paperwork from the customer in line behind me. It's the small touches that go a long way for me. The hotel was extremely clean, comfortable, and modern. I can't say enough about my trip to the Pembroke Holiday Inn Express!
