Holiday Inn Express is a stable choice in my travel plan. This time I booked the least expensive rate available to me. I am eligible for CAA, CARP, military and government rates. The desk clerk informed me that my rate would not be honoured on any future visit. I checked the rate available to me next door at Hilton Garden...

Stayed for one night and the room was recently renovated and very well done. The staff were very attentive each time we went past the front desk to make sure we were satisfied.

Stayed for a week visiting the area. The entire property was clean and well kept. Breakfast in the morning had a nice variety and changed daily. Easy to get in and out while traveling. Great service when needed. Pool but no jacuzzi, the only downside.

It started with exceptional service on the phone making an inquiry and continued right through to check in, breakfast service and check out. Our room was newly renovated. Lovely well appointed and spacious. Had a fridge and microwave. Suite included comfortable pull out couch. Staff were outstanding. Nothing bad to say here. Looking forward to our next visit.

The hotel is two minutes off Interstate 81 and has numerous chain eateries close by, some within walking distance. The reception staff were very welcoming and pleasant. Our room was near the elevator, even though we had requested to be away from the elevator, but there was absolutely no elevator noise or noise from the hallway. Our room was clean...

This is our third year going to the Holiday Inn restaurant for their fish fry during Lent. The meal is generous with fish, fries, cole slaw and salad plus bread and butter. Very nice with a choice of broiled or fried fish. We will be back.

We spent a long weekend here for skiing at Dry Hill and a day trip to Destiny mall in Syracuse. Great value, especially with $CAD money at par. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There were many small personal touches that made our stay stand out from other chain hotels. Movie and popcorn for kids in the evening in...

Room ready at noon on check in with roll away already in room. Clean room. Pool and exercise room nice. Plenty of parking. Free breakfast, your usual fanfare. No complaints from me. Just what I expect as an IHG member. The staff were GREAT. Please give this review a helpful vote.
