Excellent hotel! Room was spacious, very comfortable beds. The free breakfast was the best we have ever had- many choices, all the food was fresh and tasty.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by becky2007 nice people, needs to be cleaned a little better
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.

Came to town for Reunion. Enjoyed the stay at the hotel. It provided a nice respite from all the activities.

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.

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!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by H119 Nice Room and Good Breakfast
My family has traveled for the past week and staying in hotels for six consecutive nights. This hotel is the best we have experienced to date. The breakfast provided the most options, and the food was the best quality during our trip. The general cleanliness and curb appeal of this hotel met our desires and provided a solid value for the night.

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!

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.

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.
