Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovetofloat Such a great place to stay!
We love this Holiday Inn Express, The room, the breakfast, all first class. Only one downside, no refrigerator, although you can rent one for $10 a night or stay in a suite that cost significantly more. We like to stay here before we go float the Current so a refrigerator is a nice luxury to keep our drinks cold overnight. Love the Subway right next door for sandwiches for floating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MaryLouWho Immaculate hotel and staff that treat you like family
Incredibly clean and neat hotel with surprisingly, almost all of the amenities. The staff was more than friendly, helpful, hard-working and the nicest people around. This was a great little hotel tucked away in the heart of Ozark float country that was a nice, comfortable, conveniently located place to come back to for those who prefer not to camp after a day of hanging out on the river.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karmelcorn Very clean and updated
We had an excellent stay here. I highly recommend it. The rooms were very very clean, as were the public spaces--including the pool, laundry, and breakfast area. The breakfast had a nice variety, including fresh fruit. And all the staff was very helpful and friendly. If we were in the area again, we would most definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stjcanoe Post canoe trip destination
Myself and a group of 20 other roughly 18-year-olds stayed here after canoeing on the Current River for 2 days. They were very accommodating to our large group. We all enjoyed the clean rooms and showers in contrast to camping in the pouring rain the previous couple of days. The breakfast the next morning was great, too. It is in a great location, you can easily walk to a Mexican restaurant, pizza buffet, great ice cream shop, and convenient store from the hotel. This made corralling the group to dinner very easy. The desk staff was very nice, even after their initial shock of seeing 21 unchaperoned high-school graduates show up. As the lead organizer of our trip, I plan on continually reserving rooms at this hotel for the 3rd annual Saint Joseph Canoe Retreat and beyond.
My only complaint is that they cannot guarantee rooms together ahead of time, because they say that they organize the rooms the week of. We were able to get rooms together that conjoined, but it seems like they could carve out space a few months before when I reserve the rooms so that I know we can all get together.
Great hotel, I highly recommend. Canoe the Current, then stay here! Makes for a great get together.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Conmau Diamond in Salem
Recently we traveled to Salem to canoe the Current River (which we have done for over 30 years). We have stayed at this HIE for the last several years, (around 4 or 5, I think). This is one of the best HIEs I have been to. Here is my reasoning. About a month ago we went on a family (the 4 of us) road trip to the Grand Canyon. We stayed at four other HIEs over the course of 10 days. Each one had one thing which I would rate marginally better than the HIE in Salem. But each one also had something (or in the case of Durango, CO, many things) I thought was very sub par. And not to get into specifics, but all the other places could take a lesson from this place. The staff is friendly, the pool is always clean, the breakfast is the best I have ever seen in any HIE, and the rooms are quiet and clean. This place doesn't "excel" at any one thing. All aspects of our stay are simply very good. I give it five stars for being consistently good and a good value. And that is good enough for me!

As always, a pleasurable experience staying @ Holiday Inn Express - front desk clerks could be a little friendlier & helpful @ this location, and a little pricey for the area....

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sammyj1 Less Bacon, More Room Items
We have stayed at numerous Holiday Inn Expresses across the US, so we were expecting the usual items to be in our room. There was no refrigerator or microwave like all other Holiday Inn Expresses have in the rooms.
Also need more variety of fresh fruit at Bfst meal and less bacon and sausage. And please do not cook the eggs in bacon grease.

The hotel itself is nice, clean, etc. but what REALLY sets this place apart is the staff. We were there for an extended stay for work and every single person that works there in some way or another went out of their way for us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheryl71 A great place to stay!
This is among the best hotels I have ever stayed in, if not the best. Yes, the bed was comfortable, and yes, the room was clean; indeed it almost "sparkled" it was so clean! But it was the staff—their friendliness, their willingness to help me, their smiles and interest—that made this a wonderful stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by patratt69 Best Holiday Inn Express ever
If there is any reason for you to travel to the Rolla/Salem/St. James area, this is the hotel to stay at. Melody the manager was so sweet and helpful. Hotel is clean, nice looking, great smelling, and up to date. Pool is big for an indoor style and is clean and well maintained. The room was huge! Beds were comfy. Love, Love, Love this hotel. Breakfast was fresh and had a large variety of chices. I have stayed at over 15 different Holiday Inn Express Hotels throughout the US, and this one was definitely #1

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kayrnkay alcohol at the pool area
the accomodations are GREAT!. i do have a problem with guests being allowed to have a BEER party with rap music very LOUD! being at the Salem MO Holiday Inn was very very disappointing. i took my grandchildren there for the indoor pool but could not in good concious let them swim with the beer drinking in public-a case of beer sitting on the table (no disceretion at all)! The manager said it was allowed as long as it was not in glass bottles! REALLY? As paying guests i feel the beer party could have been held in their room instead of in public where the children are. by the way, they had 3-5 underage children with them at their "party"- i dont think this is the clientel i would cater to but apparently Holiday Inn has decided to downgrade from a 'family' hotel to a " less desirable" hotel. Very disappointed!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leon43 Totally Awesome Visit
I stay at Holiday Inn Express in Salem two or three times each month for business reasons. I have done this for several years. It is always one of the most inviting stays that I have anywhere.
The number one attraction is BREAKFAST. It is the best one anywhere I have been including other HIE hotels as well. It is a full breakfast with all the items one could wish for.
Their friendliness is outstanding. From the check in girl, to the breakfast cook, to all the attendants---all are professional at what they do. Any problems a guest has will be addressed immediately.
HIE Salem goes above and beyond to make your stay outstanding. What else can I say---they deserve top rewards.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ColdPool Great Room but Cold Pool
We mentioned to the staff that the pool was too cold. They admitted that other guests have complained about the pool being cold. They said it is 82 degrees and that the desert air in the room makes the pool feel cold. My husband is a Heating and Air Conditioning specialist. The pool temperature was set at 60 degrees and the desert air was set at 78 degrees. We could not swim in the pool as it was way too cold. The hot tub was HOT though. There is no microwave in the room but a microwave available downstairs. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was good and nice to wake up to.

This Holiday Inn Express in Salem, MO is the best I've stayed in. The front desk staff is knowledgeable and rapid with check-in and check-out. They are friendly and most accomodating. The rooms are top-notch as far as cleanliness and design! I know this hotel has been around since 2004, and it still looks and smells new. The beds are comfortable and overall room atmosphere is great. TVs are all flat-screened and have a great picture. The weight room and pool area are very well-kept. The outside of the hotel has ample parking and is pleasantly landscaped. The breakfast bar is fantastic! Food is hot, and there is always plenty to eat. The breakfast staff is friendly and willing to do anything to make your breakfast experience great. There is no reason to go away hungry! My husband and I have stayed many times, and we always look forward to our stay. It is a hotel that you can count on always meeting your expectations. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone! You can't beat it! I have stayed in Holiday Inn Expresses all over the U.S. and abroad. This one is the best!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Benn Good after room change
My stay at this hotel improved greatly after I was able to change rooms. The original room had a noise problem due to some unknown machinery located adjacent the room. Most of the Holiday Inn Express Hotels have refrigerators in the rooms and this room did not. Perhaps it's an older Hotel. Other than that my stay at the hotel albeit short was very satisfactory. The staff was very accommodating, but I think that the noise problem should be fixed before they rent out the rooms affected by it. I enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn Express Hotels, because they have been overall very good!

People are friendly and the hotel is neat. I am given a good service each time I visit them. The only thing I would recommend is to have a microwave oven and a refrigerator in the rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by greene12 Salem MO, HI Express
Stayed here two times and planning to come back many more. Very clean and fresh rooms. Great front desk staff. Breakfast good and typical of HI Express. Quiet rooms (sound insulation, and heating a/c units allow constant fan running for white noise)and I have gotten great sleep here, which is often difficult for me at hotels, Scoops ice cream and Subway a short walk across parking lot. Highly recommended from a frequent business and family vacation traveler. Nice pool and hot tub.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brooks Great place but.....
I love staying at this hotel and they are so friendly and
courteous to you. I've made a friend at the front desk that I
enjoy seeing every time. Rooms are comfortable, bath is
great, and breakfast bar is fantastic. If you go away hungry,
it's your own fault.
The but...... is please heat the swimming pool. I've stayed
here quite a few times but have never got in the pool because
it is to cold. A heated pool would be greatly appreciated!
I only use the hot tub in there.
