Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The Vernando Always a Good Experience
We stay here frequently. It's hard to find a better room for the money in the area. Everything is top notch.
That said be advised that gluten-free travelers such as myself have no food options (aside from 1/10 of an aisle at the nearby Walmart). This includes the provided breakfast: Nothing there for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1616 Rooms were nice, beds were comfortable, staff very friendly
I enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn in Vandalia,IL The rooms were spacious, comfortable beds and pillows, staff was great. The only problem was the tv in the room was very dark and could hardly see anything. I was told they were working on it so hopefully it is fixed by now. I guess it was the cable company.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lucy /leo Great room/ Breakfast area
The chairs are filthy and need to be cleaned!!!!! We looked for clean chairs to sit in to eat breakfast, but found none. The carpet could use a good cleaning also.
The guest room was great. We both slept very well.

My almost deaf husband and myself did not get any sleep due to the continues slamming of the exterior door located next to our room. What could have been a wonderful evening ended up being a sleepless night followed by a long travel day.......
On the brighter side, the room was very clean and the jacuzzi worked wonderfully.

Although it was not an issue during my stay, but you had 2 very pretty young ladies working the desk during the night shift. They were friendly and professional but I told my wife that I would have been a little hesitant to let my daughter work a front desk with just another young lady to assist.

We travel to this area to visit our daughter and her family. We have stayed at several hotels in the area and have found the Holiday Inn Express the best to suit our needs. The staff is always pleasant and the facility is always clean and well-kept. We will be staying here more often in the future.

I like this hotel, the swimming pool is awesome! But the room was not dusted and there was hair all over the fitted sheets and pillowcases.

I stayed at the the Holiday Inn Express after a long day on the road. The check in was fast and friendly, and the front desk clerk appeared genuinely concerned about my needs. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by timinator660 Great stay
We stayed here on our eastbound trip (CO to PA) and like it so much we stayed here again on the way back. Everything was very good. Nice choice at breakfast, clean, quiet room, everything in order. We didn't use the pool, but it looks like a nice one. We got very helpful recommendations for eating places downtown in Vandalia from the front desk...and downtown Vandalia is actually pretty interesting (old state house) as well. Definitely recommend. This is a great stopping point for night one of a two-night trip across the country.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jan95 Clean and comfortable
The Vandalia Inn is conveniently located and was our last stop on a cross country 3 week drive to see family. Most important to us was that the bed was comfortable, the room was very clean and the Inn was located near two nice restaurants. Unfortunately, the hot tub was out of service, or we would have taken advantage that amenity.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RadioPhil Ah! Rest!
It was when I eased myself into the hot tub that I realized this was the best decision I had made all year! I felt the hours of driving melt away and prepare me for a wonderful night's sleep. The 3-year old in the room above us eventually settled down and we forgot how noisy it could be with little ones racing up and down the room. The breakfast was diversified and meaningful, and we were ready to move on by the time the 3-year old upstairs got into his/her paces again. Overall a fine experience.

As we were driving across Illinois from St. Louis, my wife started calling hotels to check rates. It was getting late and I was getting tired. We are IHG gold members, I'm a teacher and she is a state employee. We always asks if there are any discounts. The lady at this hotel quoted a price that was in the range that we thought was cheap enough to drive further than I really wanted too. When we finally got there a different lady told us that she could not honor the price even after the first lady came from the office and told her that was the price she quoted us. She was willing to send me down the road, tired as heck and now fuming mad. My wife sent me back in to complain and we did end up paying the quoted price, but I would warn others to have a back up plan if you call this hotel last minute and are quoted a good price... They may just turn you away too.

Our stay was great. The most impressive thing though occurred after we had already left the hotel. We had left a very important piece of medical equipment at the hotel, and the staff went above and beyond the call of duty to do everything they could to get it back to us. THANK YOU!

We had four rooms for my family so we could attend a family reunion. We had a great time with wonderful service from everyone we encountered. All were pleasant and attentive, asking if there was anything else they could do. Other Holiday Inns need to take lessons from them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Omosomimaw Worthwhile smaller town stopover
I like to drive to visit children and relatives who live at a distance. To avoid traffic in large cities, I find it easier to stop in smaller centers that are easy to access and where you don't waste time in traffic. This is why I chose Vandalia, on our way towards the Southwest. The Holiday Inn there provided all we needed for a quiet stopover, close to the interstate and not too far from good restaurants in town.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by paulaj64 Super comfortable bed and pleasant experience!
The staff was extremely nice. Pool area was perfect and totally comfortable. Bed was absolutely hands down the best one I have ever slept on at a hotel! Cannot say across the board that I would stay at every Holiday Inn Express in the future, but this one definitely sways my attitude on preference for the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jennie918 Will stay there again on next trip
The folks at Holiday Inn Express know how to treat weary travelers well. The room was clean. The food was ok. The staff honored my request for a quiet room on the top floor away from traffic. There was no way for them to know the person who checked in next door to me snored so loud it woke me up and kept me up. But the bed was comfortable. I will definitely stay there again - but next time may ask to avoid being next to other customers instead of focusing on traffic!
