“Grea value”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

We came here to see snow, and hit is just right, as we got experience snow and even do a bit of sledding out back. The best value is week days, we paid $69/night by booking ahead, and it was well worth it. The rooms were clean and nice, and the staff was friendly. The pool was good, except no hot tub (seems there is a spot for it though in the future). My only complaint is that the free breakfast was lacking fruit, one day it was expired bananas, the next day no fruit. Otherwise a very good value in a great area, we plan to come back in the summer.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have a better view, and also no pool traffic.

I was not pleased at all with this hotel, When I first arrived my non smoking room smelled like a smoking room. I do not know if the rooms next to mine was smoking but you sure could smell it very strong. The fitness center is a joke. Tried to turn on the treadmill but it was broken. So i decided to go swimming in the indoor pool and to my surprise the pool was dirty and hairs floating in the pool.

I try to stay at HIE's too accumulate points, but was disappointed in this one. Check in clerk was semi interested, and signed non smoking agreement. When arriving on the 3rd floor the smell of smoke was overpowering. We don't smoke, but someone had been. Pool was supposed to be heated, but if it was, sure was not turned up, and no towels at the pool, just dirty ones.

The Holiday Inn Express is an excellent hotel and just happens to be next door to one of our favorite restaurants. The hotel was extremely clean with friendly staff. Although it was not a smoke-free hotel, I don't think they have very many smoking rooms and I'm happy to say I did not smell smoke anywhere in the hotel. The free breakfast is definately a plus. Our room also had a great shower, nice flat screen tv, fridge, lots of pillows and it was also quiet. Can't wait to visit again.

This Holiday Inn Express is in a great location and affordable for a long term stay. However, it is not the cleanest of hotel rooms. The were handprints all over the bathroom door, bring your sanitizing wipes and the floor was not vacuumed in at least 2 days of our 7 day stay that we were aware of. It is convenient if you just need a place to sleep but not for a special vacation. There is no balcony to enjoy your wine and cheese. There were many families with children when we were there as there was a horse show at the time. The lobby is nice with a good seating area and the front desk is very friendly and helpful. There is a free breakfast buffet which is adequate but when the hotel is full the breakfast room is full. Go early to avoid the crowd. The staff does their best to keep it replenished and the coffee is good!
