The hotel was very nice except for the fact that the pool was closed for remodeling which I think they should put on there website or maybe the reservations people should know this stuff. Otherwise it was very nice.

Dear Patti G, Thank you for writing a review about your recent stay with us. We’re glad that you found our staff service and rooms commendable. On the other hand, we regret that our pool facility was a let down that prevented you from fully enjoying your time at the hotel. Please know that this is not reflective of the...

This hotel was a very pleasant place to stay. The rooms were spotless and well decorated. The location was an easy find from the expressway. The area was safe and well lit. But the staff took the grand prize. Everyone was exceedingly cordial and helpful. One employee, in particular, Kim Walker, exemplified what every employer wants. Kim runs the free...

Thank you so much for your kind words about Kim. She has been with us only a short time and has made a big impact. Cleanliness is very important to us for both appearances and for guest safety, especially when dealing with food. We hope to see you again in the future!

We had a large group here for a wedding. I did not have high expectations because there are only 2 hotels, so I was really just hoping for clean rooms. Well what a pleasant surprise! The staff was AWESOME! Every person we encountered here would go out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, including retrieving...

The main downside to this place I the availability of restaurants. There are some here, just not a great deal of choices. We drove 8 miles to a decent Mexican Joint. We used their washing machine and drier, which was reasonable at $1.50 to wash and $1.00 to dry.

I am glad to here that the only down side to your stay was the availability of restaurants. Tuscola is lacking in that department however there are some good choices to visit when you are here. There is a local restaurant/candy shop downtown called Flesor's Candy Kitchen, they have been on multiple news channels and specials as well as the...

I was a guest here on last week. Given a room without refrigerator or microwave. Discovered in the AM that they only come in certain rooms. I was not thrilled and when I mentioned it to the desk clerk she said, "if you want one the next time please ask." I thought all Holiday Inn Express hotels had a refrigerator...

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Holiday Inn Express does not require guest rooms to have refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms, however because of the clientele our location receives we do have rooms that we have chosen to put them in.

I stayed at Tuscola many times as a visiting manager at one of the Tanger Outlet stores. The service was always above and beyond. I only had two issues during about 15 stays, and each issue was dealt with promptly and completely. The rooms are nicely appointed and clean and I enjoyed the pool and fitness room.
