Had a great stay here- the staff was courteous, the hotel is very up to date and clean, and was very quiet. For people who complain about price, shop around, it's very competitive for a college town that makes its money off visitors. I highly recommend this place, great location as well.

We've stayed here since it first opened under another name. Holiday Inn Express must be doing something right, because the hotel seems much busier than it used to be. A complimentary breakfast is available and it's not bad...scrambled eggs, turkey and pork sausages, cereals, oatmeal, toast/breads and sweet rolls. Juices, coffee, etc... Rooms are generous in size, in addition to...

When traveling we normally stay at Holiday Inn Express. This one is pretty much the same as all the others but because of its prime location next to VT the hotel feels it's okay to charge quite a bit more. Because of this I probably would choose to stay elsewhere in the future. One definite positive was Juan the breakfast...

I am normally a fan of the Holiday Inn Express hotels but not this time. Check in was fine. I was informed that breakfast was served at 6:30. I asked if coffee was available prior to that time and was told it was available 24/7. The next morning I was up early and headed down for coffee about 6 am....

We booked a king bed suite with kitchen. When we checked in, I asked if we would be away from the elevators. Allen at the front desk said that the room was not too close to the elevators. Surprise! The room was right next to the elevators. We complained to him to see if we could be moved, but he...

Very nice location, friendly staff and an excellent breakfast. Rooms are spacious and only problem was noice from outside as there was some renovation going on. Front area is small but clean, the staff was very helpful. Breakfast area is also small but the food was very good. The wifi was very slow and I used the free xfinity.

What an awesome staff. I have been here for several weeks and have been overwhelmed by the kind and courteous staff. I can't remember all of their names but Margie and Sandra went above and beyond what one normally expects. Great hotel. Will definitely be back soon. Hopefully for a wedding in the near future.
