Guest Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 211 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Compared to Others in the Area The best part of the hotel was that the rooms were up to date, it had free breakfast, and the price was good. I stayed at this hotel before, when it was new and the room was cleaner then, but the breakfast has improved since then. I like that they now have a pancake machine, since the quality of the other hot food is lacking. The cinnamon rolls have improved since I have last stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. The rolls used to be worse than the one's out of a convenience store package, but now they are pretty good. Too bad the eggs are still microwaved, powdered eggs and the sausage patties looked shriveled and dried out. In the room, the bathroom was clean and had towels in good condition. The showerhead could have used a cleaning as it was clogged with hard water deposits and didn't spray very well. The room had a refrigerator and microwave which was convenient, but I prefer having a freezer compartment to refreeze ice pack at night, so I can use it in my lunch cooler during the day. I like that both firm and soft pillows were provided on the bed, since I am picky about pillows. The room was not as clean or as maintained as it should have been. I found a wire hanger on the floor, under the suitcase stand, the mount for the flat screen TV was loose and the angle of the TV could not be adjusted anymore, so the TV hung crooked. Also, it would have been nice if the headboard for the bed had been wiped down after the last guests. It had greasy handprints and something splashed on it...gross. Oh, and the ice machine outside my room blew air into the hotel corridor that smelled like a wet dog, but at least the smell did not get into my room. The room was odorless, as it should be.
