Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LongKeyHomeowner Great Property I'll Visit Again
Overall, a high quality experience that will bring us back during our visits from Virginia to Denver. Initially our room temp was set quite low probably by a previous guest, so we made good use of the bedding while waiting for the room to warm up a bit. Breakfast was OK, tarnished only by an unpleasant taste in the gravy. There were other choices on the breakfast bar that still made the breakfast a hit. Aside from those small glitches, we loved our visit to this property and will add it to our favorites list. A friendly welcome awaits you and we look forward to returning!

I had a wonderful stay. Could not have asked for a better hotel. Extremely clean. Both front desk staff and house cleaning went well above making me feel at ease. One of the best Holiday Inn Express that I have stayed at.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillyTheVirtualLibrarian Perfect Sleeping Here
Exceptionally good and attentive staff. Exceptionally comfortable beds greeted us at the end of a hot long hot day traveling with our 88-year old mother. Staff were sensitive to her needs and did a lot of things to help her feel comfortable in a room that was quiet and very comfortable/welcoming. Right off of the highway, next to a truck stop, and having an interior pool full of kids, the hotel was amazingly quiet. Had three types of blankets---so sensitive to people's varied needs. The only disappointment was the breakfast. We picked the hotel because of the rave reviews about breakfast, but to us it was disappointing. Just a cut above average (big plus was the yoghurt, hardboiled eggs). The "two kinds of meat" listed in the description were apparently two kinds of greasy sausage and the egg-cheese things were, well, weird. But, others obviously love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by heathn101 Nice place to stay after a long day on the road
This hotel was perfectly placed, situated just off the highway. The hotel was nice and clean, and the staff polite and friendly. There were a few restaurants and stores in the area, making it very convenient to get dinner and do some quick shopping. The room was clean and quiet, making it the perfect place to get some quality sleep after a long drive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sjljomo Best Holiday Inn Express!
As a Platinum Reward Member, I have traveled to a variety of Holiday Inn Express hotels. The HIE in Vandalia is by far the nicest, most well kept, and professionally run HIE I have stayed at. The front desk clerk was one of the most friendly, accommodating, and caring front desk personnel I have experienced at any hotel -- she even offered to make fresh cookies for our party when she learned there were six of us and only four cookies on the cookie platter! I cannot say enough good things about HIE Vandalia. Even the breakfast bar was far above quality than other HIEs where I have stayed -- with fresh HOT food and a very friendly staff member making sure everyone's needs were met. This will definitely be my choice of hotel any time I travel through Illinois in the future. All six in our party was very impressed with everything about the Vandalia Holiday Inn Express!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tookiebean Best HIE yet!
We stayed in four Holiday Inn Expresses on this trip and this was by far the best and cleanest one. And the staff was terrific. The young lady at the desk knew who we were going to see and drew us a map that would cut off some miles. We did so appreciate her help and then to return to such a comfortable room was great. It was the only Holiday Inn Express where we stayed two nights and will be back in a few months for a weeks stay. We, of course, told our friends how good your inn was. The word will pass on, I believe.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by suegar Great service, outstanding breakfast and the beds were comfortable
The ladies at the front desk welcomed us as if we were family and we didn't have reservations. The next morning we experienced a outstanding breakfast and the beds were very comfortable.
We stayed on our way to a family reunion in Kansas and because of the great experience we decided to stay on our return trip. Keep up the quality of people and the facility.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by looks on the bright side Comfortable bed and good breakfast
Holiday Inn Express has the nicest bed with choice of firm AND soft pillows. I could make the bed warmer or cooler by removing some of the blankets, and the room thermostat worked to this same end. Blackout curtains let me sleep as long as I needed.
There was a comfortable chair with ottoman for relaxing, sufficient closet space, luggage space, refrigerator, flat screen TV with programs that I get at home. I didn't use the internet, but it was available.
The breakfast buffet had so much to choose from, including eggs, sausage, biscuits

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bart15 Very clean and comfortable hotel
We thought this was a new hotel, but learned it opened in 2007. The financial downturn that began shortly afterward most likely hurt its business, but the hotel has been extremely well maintained. The breakfast room is very large, yet quiet and inviting. The food selection was large and well presented in a large space. The scrambled eggs were the best I have ever had at a roadside hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, with a lot of initiative.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sillyilly26 Great one night stay
No complaints. Have little one that couldnt wait to get to the pool area. Pool area was nice and big. Water looked cleaned. Breakfast area was clean. Food selection was great. Surprised to see new pancake machine, versus the waffle machine. Daughter had the pancakes and thought they were good. This seems like a better idea then the waffle makers and the mess that comes with those.
Our room was on the Walmart side and we had no problem with sounds of trucks in parking lot all night.
If ever in the area again, would definitely stay at this hotel.

We have family in this area and bring our kids occasionally for some pool time! The staff is so friendly! Very accommodating, they treat you like a friend, and they treat the kids with great respect. Also, I noticed some of the other reviews stating that they did not get their rewards points; I guarantee this issue has been resolved. The moment I checked in, they informed me my points were added to my IHG account. Also, there are two new restaurants right next door (same parking lot). This is our mini vacation spot. We love it!

This hotel is very clean and cozy to just relax and take a break from the road trip. I always travel with items of value in my vehicle that I can not always bring into the hotel room and I was assured by the staff that the parking lot is very secure and patrolled by local jurisdiction. Marked it has a great placed to stay on travel through this region of the US.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by db602 Weekend Snow Storm
Had business in area and after hearing of coming storm, decided to "weather it out" at the Holiday Inn Express! As happens lots of times here, I was upgraded. As always, received a nice goody bag upon checking in. Excellent clean room. With the winds outside at 30+ mph, the temps down to -12* and 10-12" of snow, the powerful hot shower and nice room heater made for a care free attitude inside. I really appreciate the staff who battled the elements to make it in, so those of us staying here had all the amenities available. The young man in the dining area even had breakfast ready early! All the staff were very friendly and helpful (as usual), so was easy to "endure" the storm outside!!
