Located near family. Close enough for a short visit, far enough away to feel like a break from the day-to-day routines.

apparently my sisters were too loud watching a movie in my room. The guy next door banged on the door and asked us to turn it down. My question is, would that have happened if the voices he heard were men? The night manager called the police on me!

The hotel only cleans room every five days if you are there for a longer stay. I asked them to clean and sanitize my room daily. They made the bed nothing else. They also don’t put garbage bags in the trash cans. The excuse is COVID. Since COVID is high in this area don’t you think a hotel would want to triple the cleaning procedures. Come on! Holiday Inn Express you can do better than this!!

This hotel is very nice.... staff is nice, and the room was nice. The beds are very comfortable. The had a small breakfast set up where you can pick from pre-made items due to covid right now. Overall, it was a very nice place to stay. The area is very nice and safe, as well.
