We were originally going to stay at the lexington here in Festus only because its not a corporate owned brand. When we called to ask about rooms, they had no clue, so we said forget it and try the Holiday Inn. This place has been amazing for us! The breakfast is delicious and offers something for everyone, the indoor pool...

Thank you for the details of your stay. It's a big help in improving our product. We normally don't have the AC issue. Maintenance will take a look at the unit. Thank you again for staying with us!

I was very pleased with my experience at this hotel. The staff went out of its way to make me feel welcomed. I stay at many Holiday Inn Expresses, and although they are almost always very clean, I have to say this particular location was even cleaner than the others.

Very nice holiday inn express. The rooms and bathrooms are updated and wifi signal is strong. Plenty of restaurants and fast food within a mile or two. No noise issues for me.

The manager was very nice in helping us move our prepaid reservation. So, that was great! As I pretty much always do, I called ahead of time and asked for a room on the top floor, away from the elevator and ice machine. When we got there, we received a room on the top floor, which was good. But, we...

We are checking out a day early due to the extreme noise at this hotel. Good luck getting any sleep. The typical guest here seems to have no respect for anyone else. People yelling at each other up and down the hallways, slamming doors and unruly children abound. Won't stay again.

We stayed here for 2 nights and we were very impressed. It's extremely clean and comfortable. We had a king suite, which was very roomy and nicely appointed. The hotel staff were friendly and efficient. Our only disappointment was the breakfast. There was a wide variety to choose from ( pancakes, sausage, eggs, cereal, muffins, etc) but it was all...

Capable and friendly staff. Excellent bed. Nice linens. Quiet and spotlesslessly clean and everything in working order in the room. Those things are necessary starting points which this property achieves.

We had a great stay at this Holiday Inn. We decided to stay here for a weekend trip diving in Bonne Terre mine (thinking the hotel had a hot tub). No luck, but it was very nice otherwise.

We stopped in Festus on our trip to Florida. We we retired and it was late. Jessica met us at the desk and was warm and welcoming. Our room was large and immaculate. We will most definitely stay here again. Thank you HIE for a great experience. Breakfast was good too!!
