Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 378 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our first stay This was our first experience at any Holiday Inn Express and we were very impressed with the friendly May 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reservation problem adjusted by helpful local desk clerk I made the reservation on line, Nowhere did I perceive that it was non-refundable. When my plans changed so that I arrived a day later, the 800 number customer service desk wouldn't help me. She did however transfer me to the local hotel desk, who was able to change my reservation after I begged and pleaded. So it was good that the local hotel desk clerk could help me, but it was bad 1) that the website didn't make it CLEAR I was renting at a non-refundable rate. And it was no special deal, it was full price, which is a LOT in my opinion. And it was bad 2) that the customer service number wouldn't help me. The hotel itself was fine, with very comfortable beds. The bathroom was EXTREMELY well lit, shockingly so. May 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great location and staff Wonderful experience. The staff and grounds were excellent. Loved the rooms. Clean cozy little hotel. May 23, 2016
