My first stay at a Holiday Inn Express. In spite of construction underway in the lobby, it was remarkably clean and pleasant. The staff was helpful, and responsive, and, for the most part,
everything worked well, except the DirectTV, which went out briefly during a thunderstorm (which they obviously have no control over). The bed was exceptionally comfortable...so much so, it actually surprised me. They were delighted to see my dog, which is always a plus.
My only complaint: the bizarre, 1980s fluorescent lighting in the bathroom, which seemed on the verge of dying during my stay. Honestly, the only reason that stood out is because everything else was so nice. I'd stay here again. [Less]
