Returning from Myrtle beach and needed a night stay to rest for the rest of the journey. This was easy to locate near the airport. It was clean and offered as usual a good selection of breakfast. We have stayed in cheaper holiday inns express, not sure if just the overall price has gone up since our last trip.

My husband and I stayed for one night at this hotel (we were attending a wedding in the area). Basically, picked it off a list of hotels - did not know what to expect. The hotel is situated right next to another hotel at the top of a hill (great view of the area below). Short drive to a nice...

Our last stop before home. Never stayed here before. The entrance is nothing special. The front desk is off to the left as you enter. There is a dining area near the front desk. Breakfast is not included and costs a bit extra. We opted to dine elsewhere. Easy check-in and our room was neat, clean and smelling fresh. Lots...

We were heading south and stopped here for a night. It is centrally located, and has lots of food in a short drive. The staff is excellent and very helpful. The rooms are older, and as a consequence things don't quite work well. The toilet on our room ran on and off most of the night, and the AC didn't...

It generally me HIX standards. Its easy enough to find with GPS help. Front desk was fine. Food at breakfast was standard. There are not many restaurant close but if drive around the mall a little ways there are many choices. There is also a Wegmans market close and worth a visit.

Let me start off by saying the staff we encountered was very nice and friendly, and breakfast was wonderful but the hotel itself left a lot to be desired. It was looking very run down. Our room was extremely small and cramped. The floors were not properly vacuumed (I found toe nail clippings near our window..ewww!) Maybe the room size...

Stayed with the kids and it had everything we needed. Easy check in and friendly, helpful staff. The pool and hot tub area were great with great hours from 7am to 10:30 at night, which is great compared to many hotels that close their pools way to early for teens and pre-teens. Breakfast was served for 3.5 hours in the...

I will say this that I am a very "no frills" type of traveller. I don't care about wifi, etc that is or isn't offered. I only look for a comfortable sleep in a clean room. 1) Our room was quite small for a family of two adults and two children. A person has to walk sideways between the bed...
