I was very please with the room. It was very spacious and clean.
The AC did not stay on constantly even when taken off of auto and put on fan
Clean rooms, excellent hot breakfast, staff friendly, grade A+++, highly recommend...
Room was nicest I have experienced at a holiday inn express. Nicer than some 4 and 5 star hotels
Only problem was finding hotel. They need better signage.
We've stayed at several Holiday Inn Express locations around the country and have come to expect certain amenities that come with their brand. This hotel did not live up to that expectation. THE ROOM MET OUR EXPECTATIONS, AND WE GAVE IT 5 STARS. But the halls were cold, the swimming area was cold and dank, and the breakfast did not have ANY meat or fruit.
Nice accomodations, friendly staff and very clean. We had six rooms in our group and not a single complaint.
