My title says it all, but in a positive way. The main reason I stay at the Holiday Inn Express is that there are no surprises. I know "EXACTLY" what to expect and this is very important to me.
Breakfast is consistent, rooms are near the highway, but the noise isn't that bad. Rooms are dark for sleeping, but well lit if you want that, especially the bathroom. Beds, Pillows, Furniture and general appearance of the room are exactly what I was expecting and that is why I say at Holiday Inn Expresses, almost exclusively while on travel. Staff was friendly, but no wow factor. Food is great if you consider it's free, but to be honest, probably at a McDonald's level of quality.
All-in-all I would highly recommend this hotel as it has all that you need [Less]
