I was very impressed with this hotel. Usually stay at another hotel in the area, but thought I would give this one a shot and I was glad I did. The staff was great! I travel to Magnolia several times a year for work and I will gladly stay here again!

Great location, good breakfast, exercise room only has two treadmills and nothing else which is the only down side to this hotel. The soft and firm pillow choice is great for sleeping and there's enough to choose from to eat around the hotel.

Our son is on the baseball team at SAU, and we began regular travel to Magnolia four years ago. I stayed at another hotel first, before finding the HIE, and decided quickly this would be our remote home for the next four years. This was the only better-quality hotel in Magnolia until the recent opening of a Hampton by the...

Drove into town for a funeral without reservations. Night clerk very friendly and accommodating. Slept through a huge wind storm so the room, bed, pillows must be very comfortable. Breakfast good however I wish it had name brand cold cereals rather than the off brand ones.

Overall hotel is fine. It is the most decent thing in town for now. There is Hampton Inn being built up the street soon though. The parking was a bit odd, but free. If you are not careful you will drive right past the entrance so keep any eye out once you pass Sonic. Hotel is across the street from...

I had reservations at the Holiday Inn Express in Magnolia, AR for September 23rd and September 25th.
