I didn't expect much when driving up to the hotel. It's in an area of a closed out strip mall and bad parking lots. However, it's a new nice hotel. When we arrived there was a pretty glass dispenser with lemon water in the lobby. The room was nice and clean. The breakfast was the best of any chain hotel...

I recently traveled here on business. I always stay at the Holiday Inn Express. It is clean, quiet, and staff are always pleasant. There is a Manager's Reception on Monday and Wednesday evening, where the hotel provides you two drink tickets and snacks. There's also breakfast served every morning, with quite a variety of options. Room was comfortable with small...

Newer amenities included microwave fridge flat screen TV and indoor pool and spa. Breakfast included. Check in was fast and easy. Lower level was good for my sore legs. King size bed was very good. I would stay here again.

I chose this hotel for its proximity to an assisted living residence where my aunt lives. It was a little hard to get to the first time, as it's not directly on the road, but set back behind other buildings. My GPS gave odd directions, but after getting there the first time, I found easier approaches. This was a very...

Hotel was clean and comfortable. I was looking forward to exceptional staff from reviews but pretty ordinary. I thought the breakfast was good but the person working it didn't seem to be able to keep up with the demand. I would suggest the hotel designate a smoking area so that their planters in front of the building would not be...

I stayed here for a wedding for 2 days and was pleased with this hotel. Staff was friendly and clean. Location wasn't bad either. Rooms were spacious and price was spot on. I would stay here again if I was in the area.
