Impossible To cool the room off. Turning the unit to cool only produced more hot air. This property is very old.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cattlemom Nice hotel, horrible beds
Nice hotel, clean and breakfast options were a plus. What I didn't like was the quality of the beds. 2 double bed room (wish hotels would stop putting in double beds - what couple sleeps in a double bed) The first night we choice the bed that was caved in the middle. The next night we switched beds with the child and that bed was a little better. Holiday Inn Express typically have good beds, but this hotel needs a major overall in the beds. And the noise from the hallway, might have opened the door. Nice hotel except the beds.

Overall the stay at your Holiday Inn Express was very positive. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The road noise from Hwy. 55 was always present. We are walkers and wanted to climb the stairs whenever possible, but the doors to the stairs were marked as emergency exits only.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bspeak Aging Property - Could use some TLC
Certainly understand an aging property and the challenges they can present, however there are no excuses for lack of attention to details. An overall condition of just not being kept as clean as it could be......hallways need vacummed, dust present on tables, bathroom mirros and a slight unclen odor to room. Upon check-in no acknowledgement of Platinum status, bottle water or opportunity for points exchange or upgrade. The bfast attendeent was very freindly and kept that area very clean and the food well presented in AM.
Again, a solid property for its age, but attentiion to details are critical and much needed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tigers' Fan Hotel was nice with a couple of annoyances.
Only two complaints.
1. The room was very warm. We arrived late on a cold January evening with 2 sleeping children so we didn't have the opportunity to adjust the temperature. It was so hot in the room I couldn't even use a sheet.
2. Because we put the children to sleep immediately, I didn't have the opportunity to check the alarm clock as I normally do. It went off at 5:30 AM. It was so loud I literally sat up in bed in a fright. I yanked the cord out of the wall because I didn't know where the shut off switch was. Perhaps the cleaning staff had been listening to the radio while they were vacuuming???
Otherwise, everything was fine. Nice exercise room, pleasant front desk staff, good breakfast, easy parking. easy to get to from I-55.

We had stayed at this hotel on Saturday night. Sunday, a huge snow storm hit. Hotels were scarce and they easily could have raised their rates. Instead, the offered a reduced rate and the flexibility to cancel if we decided to attempt the drive home. I wish I remembered the name of the gentleman working the front desk. He had been there over 12 hours and was still very helpful and polite, I will definitely recommend this hotel to others.

We had a long day of traveling and so by the time we got there we were ready to get out of the car. The front desk was very nice and helpful. We had to do laundry there after being on the road for 5 days and the staff was very helpful with that as well. The Dryer didn't dry but it worked out fine. There was bad weather coming in the next day and they were giving everyone a discount of almost 50% to stay the next night. It was very nice of them.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Redbud Bad experience
This is probably the worst holiday inn experience I've ever had. The room was musty, the toilet overflowed on first use, the cable was out of service, the staff was unfriendly and acted like I was inconveniencing them by the room being substandard. There were no extenuating environmental or weather situations to validate any of the conditions. It's just a badly maintained hotel. Additionally, The walls were damaged in the rooms and it looked like a cheap truck stop hotel that should have an hourly rate. Last but not least, the secondary lock was broke off and the screw holes were stripped out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by USMCDD Nice & Comfortable Bed
Was a very nice and comfortable bed and overnight stay. Upon arriving in the room we noticed one of the pillow cases had a ripped seam. This was immediately reported to the front desk so we would not be blamed for it. The pillow case was not replaced during our stay. I still slept fine. I also noticed dust build up on the back of the bathroom door as well as in the heating/AC unit. Overall still a nice stay.

This hotel stay was a pleasant surprise...great breakfast variety and not the same each day. Cold food such as drinks and yogurt were stored in a mini frig and not just put on ice. EVERY staff that I came in contact with (even in passing) said "hello" or "have a good day"...some type of pleasant greeting. Room was comfortable and I was able to do my work comfortably on the couch or at the desk. Wish all hotels were like this!

I have stayed at the Springfield Holiday Inn Express and the nearby Crown Plaza on multiple occasions. I was able to confidently recommend this hotel to a colleague. What the Holiday Inn Express may not have for amenities, the Crown does have, which are available to Holiday Inn Express guests. Thanks for a great business trip!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JudyM Convenient for conference next door
Adding some kind of covering over the walkway to the Crowne Plaza would have been the only thing I would have changed. The back entrance was SO MUCH better than having to walk through the parking lots but on the day we were there - it had started to snow and none of us wanted to brave the cold to try out the beautiful pool next door. I realize it is also a driveway - but I am sure a configuration could be designed.
Loved having the choice of pillows, the beds were were quite comfy and breakfast had plenty of choices.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ivy48 Bring back the waffles...
I am a fan of the waffle bar, but what ever, it should be at the end of the breakfast bar. The line is bound up waiting for the hot cakes .
People are not sure how to use it and it sure slows down breakfast. Other than that little glitch, our stay is always good. I do miss the popcorn in the evening. We stay once a year for the weekend and enjoy it.

As you can see from for frequent stays, we have been in a number of your establishments.
One troubling thing I have noticed is the failure to vacuum the cold air returns....From what I have seen this is not anything that is part of your regular maintance program, I would highly recommend you take a look at it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by stheison Race weekend stay - ALQMA
Floor/carpet was sticky, needs to be cleaned. Hotel rooms were very sensitive to the hall noise and there was a lot of it at 11:00 when trying to get to bed to be back up at 4:45am.
The hotel is overpriced given the fact that there is not a pool onsite and guests have to go next door.
Lastly - our race club president was told ALQMA would receive a discount for renting numerous rooms, however I booked online for the same "discounted" price. Not a very good deal for bringing our business there.

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years, always a good place to stay. Breakfast is very good and the service is good.
I am disappointed in Holiday Inn making the decision to not allow smoking in rooms.

I visited Springfield with a few friends for one night and stayed at this hotel. We found the staff to be efficient, organized, and helpful. We were there for a conference with many other women and thought breakfast might be a problem since there would be so many of us trying to eat very early and all at the same time. We were pleasantly surprised to find the had opened up extra seating and did a pretty good job of keeping breakfast supplied.

Medical condition required freezer/fridge. Got the fridge but it had no freezer. First floor was needed. We got it. It was the furtherest from the lobby that was possible to have. We made it fine. Breakfast is one of the best among the chains we stay with.

While the hotel hallway was under renovation, we had to enter through the very back, in which our key did not work twice, so we had to walk all the way around the front to get the key re-swiped. All the while our take home food was getting cold. The room and towels smelled of heavy cigarette smoke, so much so that we had trouble sleeping, as we are none smokers. We tried to lay towels at the bottom of the door to prevent the smoke smell from getting in the room, however it seemed to even come through the A/C.
After complaining to the front desk in the morning, they offered to put some points back in my IHG account, which they did not do. i would not recommend this hotel to anyone else.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Obbie101013 Not worth the money
The room was not clean. They were doing renovations and put us in the construction area and still charged us full price plus extra for the dog. Most hotels will give me a military discount but this one refused and over all charged too much money for the quality of the room. My Husband and I will never stay there again and will choose other hotels over Holiday inn express in the future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Marissa102 Room was comfortable, hotel under par
I am quite familiar with the Holiday Inn Express hotels. I was disappointed with my visit to this HIE. The first room we were put in was a nonsmoking room that smelled like smoke. The next room was an original on smoking room and smelled fresh. Two other aspects were disappointing to me. The minimal selection of fruit and other healthy food at breakfast and the fitness center was being used for storage for the construction that was being done. I was looking forward to a workout after a long drive. On the positive side, the temperature in the room was easy to regulate and the room was quiet. Also the bed was comfortable and I slept well. I am hoping the remodeling will make a big difference with this hotel.
