Lobby is warm and welcoming, rooms were clean and spacious, and the staff was very helpful to questions we had. The hotel has a nice pool, exercise room, and offers...

The room was spacious and clean. The desk clerk was very helpful and directed us to a very nice local restaurant. Very quiet stay on a busy night when bad weather kept a lot of people from traveling further north.

A very nice hotel, clean and modern across the board. Wonderful breakfast. Surprised to learn no whirlpool... important for one of our party and we should have asked before booking. Otherwise, a fine hotel.

Amazing!! The afternoon/night front desk man was WONDERFUL. I booked a room to have a small birthday party for my 6 year old daughter and they let me do so in the breakfast area. They were very accommodating and the hotel was very clean!! Will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family. Thanks again front desk man!

This one shares the qualities of most Holiday Inn Expresses: clean comfortable (love the choice of soft and firm pillows) friendly staff, bill under the door during the night, updated furniture in perfect condition. Tiffany Drive is the turn off from the highway and a little hard to find if traveling east.
