This Holiday Inn is modern, spotless and either new or newly renovated. Staff was very cordial and responsive upon check-in and check-out. Fitness Center was well equipped with 2 treadmills, recumbent bike, free weights, exercise ball, etc. rooms were very comfortable, roomy, and quiet. Pool and hot tub are small but indoors. There is a small restaurant off the lobby....

This is a top quality hotel. The rooms are very clean, updated and spacious. I had a king jacuzzi suite for a 5 night stay for a conference and it was excellent. The tub works great and is in a good location in the room, perfect spot to sit back, relax, and have a drink while watching tv. Bed was...

We recently stayed here traveling from Houston to Northern Michigan. Like the other 3 times we have stayed here, the staff were very friendly and the rooms clean and comfortable. Since we always arrive late, it is nice to know the restaurant is open til 10pm and the bar is open until 1am. Staff strive to meet our needs and...

We were at this hotel for a family wedding. We arrived on Friday and were greeting by the front desk and given our keys. When we got to the room, the keys didn't work and that was a joy to get corrected with two kids under the age of 2 and all your luggage. The next day, we left our...

Had to stay at a "regular" Holiday Inn to redeem a certificate and was VERY pleasantly surprised by the AMAZING facility, complete with AWESOME restaurant and Conference Center!!!

Stopped in Effingham enroute on a personal trip. I found it easy access on/off the interstate; obviously well built because we did not hear any traffic. The lobby was welcoming, full of light and open. The full service restaurant accessible without anyone in the lobby having to watch patrons eat. Excellent breakfast. I'll stay at HI Express more often this...
