Returning to Wisconsin from Nashville, TN, we were looking for a place to stay for the night. Using the IHG app on my iPhone, I found the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites and book a room for the night, a true case of serendipity.

The front desk may have been the most friendly we have ever experienced. Very helpful in every way. After our check in they never forgot our names or why we were there to visit our Granddaughter for her graduation from Vet School. Helped us with suggestions to where to buy a mattress for her bed.

I've stayed in numerous Holiday Inn's. This location is pricier than average. The staff was excellent. Room contained nice large desk and large t.v. Room in desperate need of deep cleaning, nasty stains on furniture.
