Hotel charged us $1500 in error (after promising zero charges) and refuses to refund. Nothing short of criminal. Highly recommend finding honest people to do business with. Manager refuses to answer messages and the company's customer service reps just say that their hotels are independently owned and operated and they can't override management decisions.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on Thanksgiving Day 2016. The staff was gracious enough to allow us to check-in early! We were super tired because we had been driving all night. We got to our room which had two queen sized beds. The room was very basic but clean. The beds were firm and super comfy. The t.v.... More

Misleading photos on hotel website had me expecting a nicely decorated, updated room. I was disappointed, the room was ugly. Worn out, uncomfortable furniture. There was no microwave or refrigerator, as advertised on Hotels.com. When I complained I was told there was nothing they could do and it was a Hotels.com problem. Hotels.com was great and refunded my costs. We... More
