When we first checked in on 3/17/17 they guy at the front desk was very nice but very preoccupied and distracted. We asked him a few questions about the area and he was so distracted he forgot what we asked him and we never got an answer. We wanted to upgrade our room and was told since we paid a...

We arrived in late at night to a very welcoming host and we went into our huge room which was oddly shaped- it was narrow, but long. We had two massive beds and also a separate living space, which appeared to have a kitchen too- coffee maker and microwave and fridge and sink. It also had a desk for work....

Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Maybe a bit too warm overnight as we couldn't open the windows, the noise from the freeway was just too much and the air conditioner sounded like a jet engine. The included breakfast the next morning had something for everyone. I think good value over-all even though the freeway noise wasn't really too noticeable...

Hair dryer was missing from the room and I had to call to the front desk to get one. The fitness room was very nicely equipped. Good breakfast. Back door locked during evening hours (7 pm) and had to walk around the building after parking in the back of the motel as there were no parking spaces in front. I...

My only problem during this stay was the person next door that was coming and going at all hours with no regard for others. Dogs barking when a person came to the door. The breakfast was presented well and kept clean each day. The staff here takes great care of the guests and ensures you have what you need. I...

A happy surprise. This hotel is surprisingly great. Rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, continental breakfast is better than most. Lobby has coffee and cookies all day long. Staff is pleasant. Great location within walking distance to gas stations, restaurants, and shopping. Would stay here again.

Used this hotel for quick overnight, so arrived very late and left early. Room was clean, and breakfast usual HIE breakfast, but bed quality was very bad, as mattress was old and tired, and above all, extremely soft. Wi-Fi fast and reliable, parking free. Just next to highway. Room had microwave and fridge, which is a plus.

This hotel was very clean and friendly. A very nice Holiday Inn Express. The only downside is that if you have a freeway-facing room you will have constant noise. So be aware of that. Breakfast was what you would expect - a nice selection of hot and cold options.
