For a HIE, we thought the place was kind of run down, dirty floor on elevator, no luggage racks. Will not plan to stay here again.

When we tried to check in after the 4pm check in time, we were told it would be at least 45 minutes due to lack of staff. We were assured that we would have the room we reserved (suite with 2 beds and a pull out) would be ready when we returned. That was not the case, we returned several hours later to be told our room was not available but they held us two rooms instead (rooms were not adjoined or even next to each other). We are traveling with minors and there is no way to separate and have the minors properly supervised. Very disappointed with this out come. So, our reservation is now cancelled….. we’re driving 3 hours in the wee hours of the morning exhausted. Had we been notified the first time we tried to check in that our room wasn’t going to be available, we would have had time to book elsewhere. I would like to have a refund of the insurance I paid because the cancellation was not my fault, and that should be charged to the hotel.. not me.

The front desk clerk was tremendous. The breakfast staff were great as well. It is noisy because of the location. It is dated. They put forth good effort. For the price it was worth it.

Couple negatives and a couple positives. Negatives - I guess it’s hard keeping plentiful workers these days. While the cleaning staff definitely kept it clean, we could not check in for two hours after posted check-in time. Also, as they are working on the road leading to the hotel, we had to wait thru five (5) light cycles to make a left onto the man in road! Finally, the phones weren’t working and the bed sagged towards the middle and I could hear way too much from my neighbors, if you know what I mean. Positives - The front desk and breakfast staff were phenomenal. Breakfast was very good, with both hot and cold food and good, strong coffee. The room was clean.

Housekeeping great needs to be improved. First room we got was not clean and was missing a quilt and shower curtain. Second room was better but then saw soap in the shower from the prior guest was left on the soap rack. Gross! I had previously stayed here prior to the pandemic without issues however I will never stay here again.

The carpeting in the hallway of the 4th floor was filthy. In our room, 427, the phone didn't work, one of the bedside lamps didn't work, the blackout curtain was hanging on one or two clips, not enough towels or washcloths, no bathmat, no laundry bag-although the desk clerk did provide one at my request, the a/c in the elevators was not working, the floors in the lobby and at the entrance to the elevator on the 4th floor, needed to be swept and washed. Needless to say, we will not recommend this hotel to anyone and are going to eliminate Holiday Inn Express Hotels from our list of possible places to stay. Hotels in this condition are ruining the good name of Holiday Inn Express. I will say the night clerk who was not on duty yet in the morning was excellent.
