Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Birdie56 Always our choice
We frequently visit Lake Cumberland and the Holiday Inn Express is always our choice. It's always clean and the staff are all exceptional. When we vacation we usually look for "resorts". Although this is not a luxury resort our stay is always pleasant. The bedding is very nice and comfortable. The suites are very nice! The only complaint I have is that sometimes there are rowdy people, mainly kids that seem to like to stomp or walk heavily on the floor. We try to stay on the top floor to eliminate that noise from above. Overall I highly recommend this hotel for a stay.

Toliet was too low to the ground.
The people above our room obviously did not care who was under them as it sounded like a herd of elephants walking, especially at 4am.
Pool area and outside entry way was very slick when wet. This may increase slips and falls.
Breakfast- great selection and the best gravy of any of the competitors. Some people did not understand that they should not sit in the dining room and socialize or work on laptops as others had to stand to eat. (rude guests and no common sense for the handicapped)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jojo43 Very comfortable
I arrived early but could not check in because the hotel was booked and rooms not clean yet. The lady at check in could have cared less and didn't ask if I wanted them to hold by luggage until it was, I had to return it to the car. When I came back to check in that afternoon Someone else was at the desk and was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was clean, the temperature just right and the beds, pillow and linens so comfortable. I was at the end of the hallway on the 4th floor so it was really quiet as well.
My only true complaint was breakfast. The sign posted said breakfast ends at 9:30 am. I got there at 9:20 and some of the items were already put away and the lady tearing down the breakfast buffet was reaching in front of me to try and grab other items to put up. The items that were left were cold and hard. The waffle machine was broken. It looked as if there is usually an assortment of breads and cereals.
I highly recommend for comfort, go somewhere else for breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mari4165 Holiday Inn Express, Somerset, KY
We came to Somerset to go boating on Lake Cumberland. This was our first time to stay at HIE, but it won't be our last. The hotel, grounds and rooms are exceptionally clean. The free breakfast was delicious. The location was perfect for us. The rooms are well appointed, with mini-refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vict42 Very Pleased with Front Desk Staff
I travel a lot and never do a hotel review but I believe the woman at the front desk deserves some praise. We checked in on Sat. afternoon and had the room reserved for 3 adults and one child. Due to a family emergency, I had to pick up a granddaughter along the way. I told the lady at the front desk that I had an extra person so I could be charged for her. She told me there was no charge, and went above and beyond to make sure my granddaughter was just as comfortable as the rest of us in the room. I wish I would have gotten her name but her niceness sent me into shock. We have stayed here the last 3 years when coming into town because of the hotel being so clean and the breakfast being good but they won me for life because of what the Lady working front desk did that night. Very happy customer.....

Clean, comfortable, modern room. Super friendly staff. Only neutral thing I could think to say is it is a little difficult to get in and out of, and difficult to get to. Would absolutely stay again.

the only issue I had was not really with the hotel, but with the lack of familiarity of the hotel from the locals and GPS. Definitely need to get this hotel on the maps. I ask two different locals how to get to the hotel; one said I had to drive to Knoxville TN to find a Holiday Inn, the second said that it was down two blocks and turn right and I would see it. Those directions took me to a subdivision by a high school.
The hotel and staff were friendly, courteous, and helpful. The hotel was clean and in good repair.

Stayed here for work for over a year. Had never had no problems, if you asked for anything, the front desk group was always helpful with information or getting what you needed right away. I would stay there again .

I took my family in the area on vacation and we stayed at this property. My job require me to travel frequently and I stay in a lot of Hotels. This one has a very friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds. The breakfast was good, way better than most. If your in the area this is the place you want to stay.

I'm on the road, an average over the last five years, of 260 days a year. I always try to stay at an IGH brand hotel and am very disappointed when there is not one in an area I am working in. I stay at the HI Express in Somerset, KY and have been for five years. I am treated like a family member, which means I complain if something is not as it has been or should be. I do not have problems when I stay here. The place is clean, clean, clean. The staff is friendly and always has a smile on -even when very busy. I spent eight years in the Navy so I have something to compare the breakfast eggs to and the eggs at this HI Exp are way better than the Navy and better than a lot of other HI Exp units. As for comfort and rest - I never sleep well the first few days of a stay, even at my home after I have been gone awhile but I do love the new pillows. Thanks guys for making me another home away from home.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by swood461 Hard to find
For our vacation we stayed exclusively at HIEs (9 total across AR, MS, TN and KY). We had a very difficult time finding this hotel. The addresses listed on the Reservation website did not register on our Garmin - even though I had just installed the newest maps. When we tried calling the front desk, we got no answer. Well we got an answer, but the system kept cycling through the call program, for 15 minutes. We tried calling Customer Service to get more info, and again got put on hold for 12 more minutes. Finally we located a separate address by searching the Internet. Once we arrived we found out the clerk was swamped with people checking in and she was not very pleasant about letting us know her situation - the only person working. No complaints once we got to our room.
