Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by djy12 A good Holiday Inn Express
The facilities at this Holiday Inn Express are very good .To have hot food and drinks available 24 hrs was a bonus. An ideal place to stop if visiting the Birmingham area

Great room , very modern and clean . Found the beds really comfortable , not something that happens often.

Overal great value for money

great value as usual and friendly staff
Only downside was breakfast ,the food was good but the service was disorganised with no apparent system.ie tables not cleared and the breakfast bar was a mess of split food and stocks not topped up until asked .

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by elizabeth526 Good overnight stay
Our room was a good size and had a good comfortable bed. The televisions in the room need updating. The breakfast was adequate, but spoiled by the behaviour of other guests, rowdy workmen, who were waiting for transport to arrive. They left the breakfast room in a complete mess for staff to clear up.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Terry6559 Annoying Staff Member
Overall it was good experience, except one staff member knocked on my door twice asking if I had checked out , which was annoying , especially two hours prior to check out and then again only an hour later, perhaps they could provide their staff with an up to date manifest of the rooms and who is staying and who is not.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BlueDave Disappointed.
Chose this hotel because of location and the fact that breakfast was included. Arrival went smoothly; reception staff welcoming. Reception/lounge/breakfast area not to my taste; too modern for me; prefer more of a 'cosy' feeling. The room was on the small side for me and my wife. I guess it would be ok for one night; we were there for 3. No drawer space so could not fully unpack. Liked the layout of the en-suite; powerful shower probably because we were on the ground floor. Bed was smaller than we are used to; not king size. The mattress was soft and I ended up rolling into the middle; didn't sleep well. So had the sofa bed made up for me so that we both had room to sleep ok. Breakfast was ok for me as I always have a continental breakfast. However, my wife, and our friends, did not really enjoy the cooked breakfast options.
The contact we had with staff was good so my negative views are not about them. I would suggest that this particular chain of budget hotels does not come up to the standard set by a similar chain of budget hotels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GaM33 Outstanding Service
We have never used Holiday Inn Express before but chose it due to its convenient location. We were extremely pleased with the room quality and facilities . The staff were exceptional including the chef who catered for us around our business time restrictions. The breakfast was of a high and varied standard and was kept well replenished. I cannot fault it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheJamJar Helpful staff
It's great when you can say the staff were happy and helpful. Our kettle was tempremental and a new one was delivered to our room within minutes. Extra milk was never a problem.
Room was clean and comfortable.
The only thing I would say is a few extra staff at breakfast time would easy the pressure on staff. Also if guests cleared their dishes away it would help.
We will stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SB81 Could be better but adequate
Staff are helpful and friendly. Room was clean. Only issue we had was the corridor was smelling of cigarette smoke which was coming into our room. Some guests very noisy so could hear them
banging on doors, woke up a few times on the first night. Location is good, breakfast options are satisfactory. Room TV needs to be upgraded.
Would stay again, but will ask for non smoking areas of the hotel!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by expertcat Apart from a horriable smell as you walk into the room
Apart from a horriable smell as you walk into the room the bed was ok...Breakfast don't expect a cooked breakfast....tasteless scrambled eggs, bitty sausages, beans was ok but no bacon.
toast you had to queue up to fight for the toaster....why oh why do they only fill up the bread section a half loaf at a time...
Good point was it was free...opposite was a hotel that charges an extra £20 a night and you get full breakfast and leisure ammenties.
location was good for what we required and its close to a kfc.
Reception staff was ok but beakfast staff mmmmm its the start of the day not the end.
As with most hotels like this its soulless the only ambience is having to hear the tv and radio on at the same time while eating breakfast.

This is a better hotel than described on their own website. The reception is wonderful with a nice relaxed bar and a lovely breakfast with lots of variety included in the price. If you arrive late there is a KFC less than 5 minutes away

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hanibal8 Breakfast
The Toasters ceased to function due to a socket blowout apparentley.
The staff just said they were not working due to reason above and made no attempt to correct the situation by moving any of the three toasters to anothr socket or offer to have the toast done in the kitchen.
The desk Clerk/Manager excused the problem by saying that during breakfast time he was addressing a problem with another guest within the hotel.
At no point were the breakfast staff apologetic or offer anything in way of compensation or ask if the inconveniece caused us a problem. Similarly as mentioned above the desk on checkout offered no solice other than his justification why he was not around to address the problem.
Whilst I believe your chain give value and normally good service, I do not feel I could use or recommend this particular hotel in Walsall again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dylan17 Well worth the money !!!!
My husband and I stayed overnight at the weekend,and were very impressed with our overall experience for the price we paid.
James on the front desk was a very pleasant and helpful desk manager.
The room although fairly basic was clean,bed very comfortable,but what surprised us the most was the complimentary breakfast in the morning,we are not people with large appetitesand were expecting a coffee and croissant, however what a lovely surprise,fresh fruit,fresh fruit juice,cereals,and a choice of cooked sausages,lovely scrambled egg,and beans....
Very impressed and would definately stay here again if in the area and certainly recommend it to family and friends.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Excellent value and staff
Excellent value after coming from a nearby youth hostel which where the customer care was shocking and only £4 cheaper.
Amazingly difficult to find, but on arrival a complementary drinking chocolate for my little boy did the trick, thankyou Ania (I think).
All staff really friendly and a credit to the company, beer could have been better but that's being picky.
Only surprise was no meals on Fridays, but staff more than happy to produce takeaway menus and allow you to use hotel phone to order and eat it in the bar area.
Definitely stay again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Angus92 Good Short Stay Hotel
We have stayed at this hotel previously as it is convenient when visiting family and friends in the area plus it is close to J10 of the M6 so is easy to find.
The room we had was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. All the staff we encountered were friendly, polite and helpful.
Breakfast is classed as "complimentary" and as such has a limited choice but was ok (edible and hot which is always a plus!!)
We think this hotel is excellent value for money and is definitely suitable as a short-stay option i.e. one or two nights only.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pluslad All round a pleasant experience!
Reception nice, clean and bright plus modern. Friendly staff. Clean rooms, comfy beds and good lighting. Nice breakfast except powdered scrambled eggs but otherwise nice and fresh (especially the croissants).
Disappointed with limited TV channels (not Freeview) and not able to play my kids DVD's on it via scart cable.
Weird intermittent noise and vibration all the time but quite noticeable during the night, woke my wife up and that takes some doing(!) - thought there was a train parked outside the hotel on the first night!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 great breakfast and its free
this is our 4th stay at a holiday inn express, and certainly cant praise it enough. very clean rooms a good nights sleep and a wonderful hearty breakfast. I have only one gripe. breakfast is very good apart from the scrambled eggs, there seems to be no taste to it, but everything else is champion and good value for money.
