Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mazakengi Very Poor Hotel
I'm not usually a picky person, but this hotel was pretty awful. The front desk seemed not to want to be at work. They were non accommodating and unfriendly. The room was very outdated. The TV was a CRT. The bed was not comfortable. The shower's drain was mostly clogged. The overall cleanliness of the hotel (bathroom especially) was poor. When you combine that with a rude, unprofessional staff, you get a bad review. I've been a platinum member for almost 10 years, so I know when I've stayed at a bad hotel.

Each year that our Team Quest team qualifies for Finals in Chester, we stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Sparta. The children love to swim, and many restaurants are nearby.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Only Hotel to stay at while in Sparta
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is staying in the Sparta Illinois area. Great service by the staff, with great amenities. Breakfast was refreshing and changed up daily. The pool and workout room also were well equipped and relaxing.
Only nuisance I encountered during my stay was a group that was there for a basketball tournament. I was in an end room with the stairway being one of my walls, and kids were running up and down the stairs and giggling in the stairway until 2 AM. Always amazes me at the lack of parenting/chaperoned control of these groups, as the adults also look at it as party time for themselves as well. I understand they are kids, but the adults should lead by example.
Overall, I enjoyed my stay while on business in the area and would recommend this hotel highly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terry6971 Great staff
My stay was very good. The only improvement that is needed is to offer smoking rooms. A person that smokes money is as good as anyones. I understand the cost of cleaning and that a smoking room might be slightly more but this is not a option at Holiday Inn Express.

We were stuck in Sparta during the big freeze that started off the year. The staff went out of their way to take care of us and the maid did an excellent job of picking up after us. Thanks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SouthILTy Clean and Comfortable
The facility is clean with comfortable rooms. The pool was very cold and the workout room has a little left to be desired. The front desk was advised that both of the treadmills were not working properly on December 4, 2013 so hopefully that has been corrected. The area is small but could use some dumbell weights and a rack. Plenty of area for that addition. I will stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by adamlwvdc36 I had fun here this time around
As I said in my first review of this hotel, I pretty much HAD to stay here. I called IHG, and told them about the issues I had at this hotel, they then called the manager, who then called me and let me know that he was unaware of the problems I mentioned.
When I showed up, It was a different hotel. The staff was more attentive towards me and other guests (there were people I was working with that stayed here as well... we talked about these issues). The room needed a little bit more attention when I first checked in but they took care of this the next day.
The guy that was watching tv every morning simply wasnt any more, They even got more towels!!
These changes tell me that the manager does definitely care about his hotel, but needs to be informed of the problems as they present themselves... communication fixed this hotel, and will keep it from slipping again.
Get a guest laundry Is all I can say. The change in simple things made me even not notice things like this so much.
Thanks for the memories guys, and the ability to help your hotel be better.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by adamlwvdc36 Not happy with this stay... but check my second review
I was not happy with this hotel during this 31 day stay. They didnt put the room in my name (even though I paid for it, had to actually call IHG to get this taken care of). The housekeeping staff didnt really pay attention to the cleanliness of my room, leaving several areas untouched weeks at a time. Every morning for the first week I was there, there was at least one thing that was out of order or empty on the breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, almost every morning during this stay (about 90% of the mornings he worked) the one night audit was watching tv in the breakfast room. This is very unprofessional.
I wish this hotel had a guest laundry as well since the only option was to spend a night in a shady laundry facility in town.
The two Terri's at the front desk (dubbed T squared by me) were AWESOME and friendly. There was a "new guy" working there too (dont remember his name) that was great as well.
Based off of this stay, I would not recommend staying here... If it werent for the fact there really isnt anything else in the area that is decent.
However, read my second review of this hotel (about 11 days, 4 days later)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Danny51 Great Location!
This Holiday Inn Express is located near several great places to eat - both fast food and restaurants. I loved the convenience of walking to dinner at the great Mexican place near the movie theater. Staff were super friendly; rooms were perfect. Breakfast staff was especially kind.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terry6971 Top notch staff
The staff in Sparta is top notch, I couldn't ask for better. The only thing that needs improvement is the exterior lighting, it is minimal to say the least. Very good place to stay, they make you feel at home.

This hotel was very clean and comfortable. I read reviews before we went that scared me but they were all false. There is nothing wrong with this hotel. Price was high due to event we were there for (that was expected). I applaud the cleaning staff.....rooms were Great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcf100 Feels like home
The friendly staff at Sparta Holiday Inn made feel like you are at home. The stay was great. We arrived and received a warm welcome from the desk clerk. The check in area was spotless and a welcome signed was posted for "The Grand Visitors." Our room was nice and clean and well stocked. The breakfast was hot and plenty of foods to choose from whether it be fruit, cereal, cinnamon roll, biscuits, gravy , sausage, eggs. They had anything you wanted. At the end of the day when we returned there were fresh chocolate chip cookies for everyone. The room was quite so we got plenty of rest. The beds were comfortable. Walmart, Dollar Store, and restaurants nearby. You can't go wrong staying here. We will be back next year.
