Great hotel with fantastic staff. Stephanie was extremely helpful when I called just 48 hours before my arrival date. Krystal greeted us at check-in like we were old friends and made us feel very welcome. Everyone we encountered-Jackie, Carl, Jason, the breakfast lady-was courteous and friendly throughout our stay. Our room was very clean. There was a good variety for breakfast. Coffee and assorted teas and ice water were available at all times. We will definitely stay here again.

Jason and Krystle went ABOVE and BEYOND to provide excellent customer service. I was to the point where I was going to check out - now I'm staying extra days because they were so helpful and accommodating of my needs. The excellent customer service is why I stay at Holiday Inn Express.

The room was clean and spacious. Lobby and eating areas are nicely laid out with differences in seating preferences accommodated. Staff was genuinely courteous and very thoughtful. Parking lot is well lit. The entrance seems a bit small and almost looks like a back door. Would definitely stay here again!!

I expect a good stay at a Holiday Inn Express, but this one was excellent. The usual comfortable bed ( a little firm but that is what I like), good breakfast offerings, and great shower, but the staff was among the friendliest and most accommodating I have ever experienced. Good location. I HIGHLY recommend.

Room Tip: I Is currency under renovation to be even better but the work caused no inconvenience to me.
