Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Louisep80 Comfortable,convennient, good food options, service could be better
Have stayed here a few times with my kids in tow, its a decent central location for easy access to the motorway for Birmingham.
There is a KFC over the road which I handy for arriving late at night. Rooms are clean and comfortable but the hotel is always busy at the weekends so can be a little noisy in the hallways. Breakfast was good, the standard HIEX options. Continental options were nice, although not a lot of options when it came to jam. Sausage and eggs were good, beans a bit dried out but all in all a good breakfast for the price of the room. Staff were not the friendliest and not particularly helpful when it came to asking about warming baby food etc - have had better experiences at other Holiday Inn/ Express.
Overall still a great hotel for the price and would definitely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Torimages Great Service and Quiet Rooms
Staff at Walsall HIE are always helpful and offer advice if asked. Rooms are nice and quiet and offer a haven for snoozing. I would say that the only problem with the room is there is not enough in the way of electrical sockets and it would be hand to have one at the bed side so when charging equipment overnight phone/tablet and use as an alarm clock it means for a more natural/convenient wake up.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GerryBhoy Overall, pretty good for what it is
If you bear in mind this is an 'express' hotel, then it's actually pretty good - above standard even. I've certainly paid more for larger hotels that were far worse overall.
The rooms are fine, as expected, but it's probably the toilet and shower where the signs of age are harder to hide - you can tell that things have been spruced-up to a good standard - and they were still very clean and absolutely more than adequate.
I was pleasantly surprised at hot food being available at breakfast (it's an 'express', remember?!) and it was very good indeed. I heard other, older guests moaning about the food availability but they also think the world revolves around coach parties. It does not.
Our only gripe was the state of the ladies toilet. My wife did report this to reception in the evening and it seemed to have been resolved by the morning. However, no toilet should ever be in a state where we prevented our daughters from using it. I could already smell the problem when my wife returned to the lounge area to tell us the floor was covered in urine and sanitary bins clearly had not been emptied - the smell was disgusting and she had to clean her shoes immediately.
Couldn't relax as the hotel was rammed: 3 coach parties as well as everyone else.
Overall, fine for what it is and the price we paid.
