Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnQ Nice hotel. Extremely nice staff
Hotel rooms are outdated. Needs some remodel or upgrades. But even with this, I still had great experience and highly recommend this place. Restaurant next door is great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BigE65 Bacon makes everything better
The front desk did not recognize us as Priority Club/IHG club members at check-in. After getting our room key cards, I asked what perks did they provide Priority Club members? The front desk lady said they could offer me a late check-out. She also said that they give out snacks but only to their Gold and Platinum members. I questioned this stating that at other Holiday Inns I had stayed at they gave out snacks to all members - not just Gold and Platinum. (At one point in my ten year Priority Club membership, I was a Gold member.) Anyway, the front desk lady said she would make an exception for me and brought out the snack basket. Next time I'm in the area, though, I'll stay at a competitor's property and bring my own snacks !
The room we stayed in could use some updating, but it was still comfortable and clean none-the-less. Beds were comfortable.
The reception of the TV in our room was snowy - sort of like what you would see in an old 1960's motel. The front desk lady said it was due to the satellite signal. Too bad. In this age of technology, bad TV does not seem like an acceptable situation.
But, not all was mediocre here. This property serves bacon among its breakfast selections - and they did a good job with the overall breakfast food offering. Everything seemed hot and fresh.
Overall, an okay stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DOEisfun Holiday Inn Express on East coast needs renovating
Just got back from a West coast trip and needed to go to CT. West coast Holiday Inn Expresses we stayed at were great.. new, fresh looking in and out, staff was terrific, and priced very competitively.
East coast Holiday Inns not so much.. starting to show their age.. like this one. While $15 less than a hotel down the road, we were given a "smoking" room after specifically asking for a non-smoking room.. well, it was labeled "Non-smoking" but it smelled like a cigarette smoke factory, The staff tried to get rid of the smoke by putting the A/C at 60 degrees while we were out to supper... of course, that failed... and they said they had no other rooms. Bed was uncomfortable, bathroom had NO towel racks???, toilet seat was loose?? couple of outlets had no power... needs to be refurbished.
This was the last (and will remain the last) HI Express we will stay at on the East coast.
Positive side... staff was friendly and tried to be helpful!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy493872 Missing door lock plate
Our room had a missing door lock plate so when we were out of the room there was no security. We reported this to lady at desk who seemed surprised. Apparently the maid had not reported the problem. Fortunetly nothing was missing. The motel also had a very small breakfast area where the tables were quite close to each other. I also didn't find any pool and didn't receive a welcome gift that Priority club members usually receive when checking in to motel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lady47 Good place to stay.
We stayed here one night, Sat June 1st. When we checked in the desk clerk stated our room was right down the hall. It wasn't!! It was way down the hall. (We are seniors, my husband has a hard time walking any lengthy distance.) We checked into our room, and upon inspection of the room, found human hair globs near the drain of the bathtub. Immediately I went to the front desk, the clerk apologized, stated she would give us another room, one directly across the hall. She apologized a 2nd time. 2nd room was great!
Upon leaving, I inquired if the hotel had handicapped rooms, the desk clerk stated yes. We have family in the area and visit quite often, we will make our next reservation for a handicapped room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rich64 Comfortable hotel
I stay in many holiday Inns around the country and this one is very nice. The most disappointing thing about the hotel is they did not recognize me for being a Gold Priority Club Member. I always appreciate that when I am at the Holiday Inns. But it is a nice place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ruglen Book it!
NIne of my family stayed here and were given a special rate because we were in the area for a death in the family. I was unaware of such a rate and was pleasantly surprised when the staff reduced our rate without our asking for it. All in all, this is a very comfortable hotel and I recommend it highly. Incidentally, try the pancakes on their new machine!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mspiggy71 Outstanding!
As always, we had a great stay at this Holiday Inn. All was wonderful except the pillows were kind of lumpy and limp. Otherwise, the room, the staff and service, the breakfast all were really excellent!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Huskyfan Great Value and Outstanding Staff
I stay at this hotel 2-3 times pers month. The staff are always professional and incredibly helpful. The rooms are always clean, and the hotel is quiet. Breakfast is also very good, although it would add value, if not variety, to consider changing up the breakfast menu periodically.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fogs Accommodating Staff insures Smoke Free room
This facility was slightly higher cost/night then other options but I had a special request to insure the room we were assigned had no remnants of smoke odor (previous nights HIExpress in VA was less than acceptable with major smoke in a non-smoking room). Consandra outlined she would check the assigned room personnally and guaranteed no problems. When my family and I arrived all was fine (no smoke or masking scents). This was a simple need but extreemly important at this point during our short family trip. During our two night stay I witnessed another customer being assisted by staff and this confirmed this HIE location has a conscientious (sp?) staff that understands and responds positively to the needs of customers. Much appreciated! Happy New Year!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beckey Had a great stay
My mother and I were in the area for a mini vacation and the Holiday Inn Express offered us everything we were looking for. The price was reasonable, the facility was very clean, and the amenities were satisfactory. The breakfast was awesome (eggs, pancakes, cereal, biscuits, bagels,etc.) and the staff was super friendly. The gym was small, but clean and had quality equipment. The restaurant that sits right next door was super handy.
Our only complaint was that the bar across the road got a little loud between 11pm and 2am. Our room was to the front of the building and the cars (and motorcycles) leaving were enough to wake us up multiple times both Friday and Saturday nights.
Overall we had a great time!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Speedydelight Late night noise.
The room was great! We arrived back at our room about 11pm or a little later. We were watching TV and I could hear the radio and a bit of a humming noise. I was going to call down to the desk to see if there was a lounge downstairs. But then I finally fell asleep. In the morning when I looked out the window to see the weather I noticed some dryer fuzz outside. I then decided that it was the laundry room late in the night making all the noise.
It might be nice if the night crew could keep the music down.
We were in room 208 right over the laundry room.
