I have stayed at other Holiday Inn Expresses, but this was my first time here. It seems as if this hotel was probably in good shape at some point, but it has not been maintained. The "security guard" mechanism on our door was missing a piece so it could not be latched. The bed was one of the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept on. The shower curtain had mold. The hallway carpet was filthy. On one of the days of our stay, there was a horrible stench of rotten garbage on our floor for several hours. The first morning there were no plates at breakfast; the second morning, there were still no plates, and also no spoons for cereal. On one of the mornings, several staff members were slowly getting breakfast for themselves, but loudly talking and blocking the way, clueless that there were guests waiting to get breakfast as well. The last night we were there, there appeared to be a verbal altercation between two employees in the parking lot.

When I got there they had cancelled both rooms I reserved. Someone else had a room with same last name and they thought my rooms were a mistake. They should have checked the first names and realize they were different. I waited for almost an hour at the front desk to even try to check in, no one was there. They finally showed up and found me two rooms but I am not happy about this at all!
