Good not Great

Posted Jun 15, 2015
Pros: There was A/C
Cons: See my review
Location: We went for the Superman Celebration, so there was that. Otherwise there is really nothing to do except go to the Casino I suppose
Hotel stall was fine and the rooms were adequate and clean, no issues there. The one and only elevator broke and wasn't fixed while we were there, no idea if or when it was fixed. The continental breakfast was really low end, eggs either over cooked or overcooked, sausage that tasted like meat but maybe not sausage. Again, for free it was fine. It was a non-smoking hotel yet the hallways smelled of smoking. This hotel was and is a 3 and nothing more. Would I stay there again? Highly unlikely

Limited sleep

Posted May 31, 2015
We were on the 1st floor and we could hear EVERYTHING above us until 1:00 in the morning. I don't know if the people above us were just being really loud or if the floors are just poorly insulated for sound. Either way, we got very little sleep. We called the front desk 2x and got little reprieve until the people above us went to bed. It was very frustrating.

Not the best by any mean. The staff was not at desk upon arrival, and he was very awkward. The breakfast food was not fresh. The room was clean.

Overall excellent! Friendly staff! Had my dog with me, they have a big grass field in the front and back, works perfectly to let your dog run loose after a long day in the car!

Pros: Close to Paducah.
Cons: Water pressure. No outlets.
Bed was Uncomfortable dipped in the middle. The shower was great if you like a cold shower. When trying to turn on the hot or warm water there was no pressure. The knob went all the way around and to turn the water off was difficult also. I talked to the front desk and they said that the lady the night before said the same thing?

A home fit for Superman!

Posted Feb 17, 2015 on Hotels
My husband and I are repeat customers for this particular hotel, not only because we have family in the Metropolis area, the home of Superman is a fun place to visit. During our stay we sometimes go to the Purple Toad Winery in Paducha, KY, which has become our favorite and is just a hop, skip, and jump across the bridge. From my experience, the Holiday Inn Express has always accommodated any needs we've had, which have included gatherings in their meeting rooms which, sometimes, moved into the lobby for photographs and socializing. The staff is always very friendly and inviting. The rooms are very clean and the beds are quite comfortable. They have a full complimentary breakfast that includes biscuits and gravy, and a machine that makes fresh pancakes on demand just to name a few things! We will definitely stay here again when we're in the Metropolis area.

OK place but isnt as nice as other Holiday Inn Exp

Posted Feb 3, 2015 on Hotels
Stayed in a suite room but its no larger than some regular rooms at other hotels. Room smelled very stuffy and old but looked nice and bed was comfortable. Breakfast was not good. Could drive nails with the biscuits, pancake machine broken and not a lot of choices. I would stay here again but lower my expectations of this location compared to other Holiday Inn Express's I've stayed at in the past.
