Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jlzlgz13 Wonderful Room
Large room, not cramped. Comfy beds & linens. Very clean. Enjoyed the hot tub, but were unable to get in the pool due to the large number of young, rowdy children. Good food nearby

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy2B Over the top friendly and clean
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Made us want to come back. In fact, we have already chosen this hotel for the next time we will be in the area. This is a well-maintained property and provided a very good night's rest.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sosoquilter room and comfort
The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The only downside to our stay was that the blow dryer didn't work. We tried all we could think of to make it work to no avail. The outlet worked, just not the dryer. We were wanting to get on the road, so we didn't pursue it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flip826 Second stay, both were great
Our family stopped here on a road trip a couple years ago and enjoyed it, so on the road trip two weeks ago, we stayed again. Staff was helpful and friendly, coffee flowed at all hours (important to me), daughter loved the pool and son liked the weight machine. Clean as a whistle. The night was quiet. The beds very comfortable. Great shower and everything you'd want for breakfast. Even a free, local excellent newspaper. Already looking forward to our next road trip to stay again. Thanks for our home away from home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnKS Great Place To Stay!
If one is ever driving I-70 and needed a place to stay at I highly reccommend this hotel! For a small town you cannot beat the quality of service and comfort you get from this hotel. The staff is very good and they know their stuff, just ask them how to get around St. Louis and they will tell you. The rooms are extremely comfortable, and their swimming pool is top notch! I stayed here with my wife and 4 nephews so that we could visit some family friends in town and go to the St. Louis Zoo (St. Louis is only an hour drive to the west of here). The breakfast was delicious (always is from Holiday Inn Express hotels), but the only "Con" I can give this hotel is that they need to hire additional staff as their front desk covers to breakfast area as well. They need to hire a true breakfast attendant as this hotel fills up each and every night and always has a huge crowd for breakfast.
WAY TO GO VANDALIA HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS!! I will stay here again when we come back to vist our friends in town.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by luckybum two visits in one week
I stayed at this Holiday Inn Express from 5/21 to 5/23 and again from 5/28 to 5/30. First time to visit family. Second time for family emergency. Both rooms where exactly what you would expect from this name brand chain of hotels. From the linens to the staff ( 5 star) Indoors and outside everything was neat and orderly. Well lite at night-no need to worry about security. Breakfast buffet has a huge variety from hot or cold foods. .fresh fruit muffins ,teas, coffee ,meats ,eggs . Friendly staff . Not the fake kind of friendly but the kind of helpfulness you show your family. I will be returning this hotel in my future visits.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carol57 Comfortable bed and good coffee
The room was very comfortable. My only complaint would be that breakfast choices were limited and the attendant wasn't available while we were down for breakfast. The pancake machine wasn't working, there were no hard boiled eggs and the scrambled eggs were almost gone and what was there was dry looking. There wasn't any fruit out. The attendant showed up as we were ready to leave and started to refill things, apologized that she had been in a meeting but we had to leave so just ate some yogurt and got a coffee to take with us. The coffee was pretty good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doug1ofFew One of the Better HIX
Stayed two nights (two separate bookings). Easy on/off from I-70. Both rooms were excellent. Nice furniture, flat-screen TV, bed, refrigerator. Quieter than most. Larger than average bathrooms. Nice breakfast/commons area. Breakfast typical HIX offerings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PanzersDad Great Stay!
Wonderful stay. Staff couldn't have been nicer or more friendly. Breakfast was very good. Wished for fresh fruit. Room was clean and well maintained - as was the whole property. Gym, spa and pool were very nice. Only drawback was the Wal-Mart next door had semi trucks idling all night. Even then it was still pretty quiet. Get an even numbered room. As with most hotels - the black out curtains didn't transect, but barely met in the middle. Carry a clothes pin.
Will say that even the in room coffee was good - and that is a REAL rarity.
Thanks much for a good stay.

Great room. Friendly staff. Was very tired after driving 900 miles. Rested wonderfully on the very comfortable king-sized bed. This hotel is top-notch. Will stay again if/when passing through the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dmcprint Our Second Stay
This was our second time staying at this Holiday Inn Express. We returned because of our previous experience and the fact that this hotel accepts large pets. We travel with our two dogs, a retriever and a schnauzer. Each time, we were greeted by friendly staff and had a clean modern room with amenities. We stayed on the first floor which made it easy to take the dogs out to potty and grab a quick breakfast before leaving. We'll choose this hotel again when traveling on Interstate 70.

our stay was very good except for the regulating of the heat/AC unit. The pool and spa were very warm and hot. A great way to end the day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LyndaLu17 Very nice Holiday Inn Express
This was a very comfortable stay for us. Clean, spacious room, clean spacious bathroom. The pool was exceptionally nice, and the hot tub was hot and relaxing.
Good breakfast, although nothing spectacular.
We stayed in four hotels on our trip this time and I liked this one the best!

An awesome stay for the money. The hotel, pool, and rooms were very clean, modern and comfortable. It is a smoke free hotel which an added bonus...all area's smell fresh and clean :0) We we also really pleased with the extended pool hours. The breakfast was hot and well stocked, with a wide variety of items which pleased all 5 palets. The hotel staff was very nice, courteous and accommodating. Check in and out was quick and effiecient. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MarshaandLarry Almost 5 out of 5 but a good 4
At check in we were not acknowledged as a Priority Club member but I saw water but none was offered unlike other locations we stayed at. We stayed 2 nights, the place is nice but next to a truckstop so noisy at times, after 1st night went out for day and when came back the room was made up and new towels were in place---but no new soap or TP..had to get a roll from desk, also the toilet water runs or sticks on at times and the door knob on bathroom wouldn't latch at times...was a very new place so surprised at the small issues

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelSalesGuy Great Hotel- Highly Recommend
I have stayed at this Hotel a few times now, when business calls fo rme to be in the area. It's location is excellent and the staff is top notch. Unfortunately, weather can be an issue in spring and summer but the staff handles weather warnings with professionalism and makes sure everyonte is safe. Great rooms for the busines traveler, large and comfortable, with good beds and refrigerator. Highly recommend.
