This Holiday Inn Express is similar to what I expect from HI; clean rooms, helpful staff, breakfast. Pool was nice to have as well. This particular hotel also accepts pets at no charge! Great for a family traveling with their pet and who are on a tight budget. We stayed here twice in a week both to and from our...

We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. It was clean and the staff went of of their way to accommodate our needs. The only reason I gave 4 and not 5 stars is because, as with all Holiday Inn Express hotels, the walls are rather thin. This is the best hotel in the area and I would recommend...

What a fantastic staff and nice PET FRIENDLY facility. Dogs were welcomed with open arms and treats. Plenty of space outside and nice big king bed rooms. Overall a great place for our weekend road trip. Will return for sure.

I was here 3 days. Room was clean, bed was comfy, and the intent works great. The staff was friendly but for the most part just left you alone. Breakfast was put out early every morning which helps the early risers.

Think 1993, This hotel is ok, but is in need of an "upgrade", Rooms were clean, the staff was great, but it just seems like-renovations are due. The rooms were quiet, and it sits right on the highway. Also I stayed on my CLC card and no points were givin- Yikes, Wont be back.

Stayed here just one night while heading from Wisconsin to Florida. The gentlemen that checked me in was extremely efficient and courteous (8:30 pm on 1/24/17). Rooms were spacious and clean.
