Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Everything smelled very clean and the breakfast was awesome. The girls that managed the breakfast area did a wonderful job! I wish there was an ice machine in every floor.

The hotel was okay. Not exactly the level that I expect from Holiday Inn Express. Disappointing was the hot tub. The website shows a hot tub but when we arrived, we found that it had been filled in with concrete. Very disappointing after a long day of travel. Breakfast was just okay. Lacking things we have some to expect from the brand.
