My other half & I just recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express, & were very impressed on ALL levels. Unfortunatly we were there to attend a funeral; The staff was extremely 'Warm & Welcoming,' rooms are clean & comfortable, & breakfast in the morning was delicious. If I return to the area, this will be my go to hotel!

Thank you for taking the time to review my hotel. I apologize for the cool temperature of our hot tub, we were having some issues with our boiler; however, those issues have since been repaired. I am also pleased to say that over the next year this property will be undergoing renovations. When these renovations are completed we will have...

Unfriendly service on check in, not rude just could care less about making us feel welcome. We also did not receive room cleaning service during our stay. When we asked if there was a reason why we didn't receive it I was met with a blank stare and was told that "maybe it was because they were short staffed because...

Location seems to be in an area where the neighborhood did not feel safe. Rooms were OK, the Gym equipment had 2 pieces out of 5 broken, that was disappointing. The Holiday Inn Express counter people had a challenge with English and checking us in was a little bit of an adventure. Not so welcoming.

The facility is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is standard hot and cold fare...the counter space could be better laid out. There is no hotel restaurant for dinner and not much to choose from within close walking distance (it was bitterly cold while I was here and two blocks was all I could make). There...

Your standard, run-of-the-mill hotel room in this class with one exception: BEST WATER PRESSURE EVER (of any hotel I've ever been in)!

When traveling I use Holiday Inn and affiliate hotels and collect points from this chain so I have stayed in Holiday Inn Express (HIE) hotels extensively.

Nothing special about this rather tired out HI Express. I did not find the room to feel that clean-- lots of guest stays on the odometer; finger prints on furniture, well worn and used armchair and desk chair, saggy bed. I will not be back to this property and I am an active Priority Club member. Not worth the money.
