My husband, our two toddlers, and our infant, stayed here overnight on the way to visit family and back. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and kind. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The free breakfast had many options (bacon, sausage, eggs, muffins, cereal, pancakes, gravy, biscuits, fruit, and more), the location was great for our needs. It's...

Very nice hotel and very clean. Right off the interstate and good parking. The buffet of Breakfast was very good with lots of options including hearty country favorites.....and staff were exceptionally polite. Only concern is the water that comes from the faucets is slightly tinged in color. No odor, no grit, not dirty, but not color free. Never noticed until...

I'll start off by saying they do have a pretty nice staff but as far as the rooms not so pleasant, the ac quit working, the room had a musty smokey smell, I found BLACK MOLD on the wall I will upload pics and tv wouldn't turn on, seems like it use to be a nice place but not anymore....

We spent one night here on a road trip. It was fine for a 12-hour stay but not up to the usual Holiday Inn Express standards. Our daughter's room had a fridge; ours did not. Our daughter's floor was literally lumpy, with a noticeable slope. Our furniture was rickety. The walls were very thin. And our daughter washed her hair...

The lobby did not look bad. Once you got beyond that point it was all over. The hallways and elevator had a bad odor. We got into our room which also smelled bad. The door had a huge gap where you could see in the hallway. We were extremely tired from a very long drive. Normally we would have just...

I have been staying at this Holiday Inn Express for years. I have never had a problem here, I even wrote a great review of this location, a few months back.

Really nice people on staff. Nice room. This place is due to undergo a remodel but I liked it the way it is. I guess it'll be even better. Clean rooms. Cool air conditioning. Nice tv and fridge. I'd stay here again.

This was my 8th time stopping here and it might be my last. The owners son is a person with a chip on his shoulder. Maybe he should not be working here, as I since he has been here the level of service has gone bad. It has a great location and is a good stopping point for our travels,...
