When I inquired about the charge I was told that its privately owned and Holiday Inn Express allows for each owner to charge this extra fee..not cool Upon arrival there were...

Overall stay experience was bad. Hallways, elevators and room itself was not very clean. Parking was very limited and hardly any lights for the parking lot worked, very dark parking lot location.

Hoped for some separation from the fold out sleeper chair but it's all just one big room. That is the skinniest fold out chair/bed I've ever seen but the teenager reported it was better than the floor. Queens were comfortable enough. Had to ask for more towels as it only had three sets and we were 4. Little kuerig with...

Stayed there last night. Friendly staff, overall appearance is "tired", dead plants out front, weeds in the flower beds, bed very lumpy and have the feel of needing an overall cleanup and refurb. Breakfast was fine. Elevators creaked and groaned. Overall a little below the HI Express we have stayed in other places.

We only stayed one night for an early family function, but I would stay again if necessary. Clean, comfortable, decent price, and located near the airport and a few miles from downtown. My only slight complaints were slow elevator due to one of them being out of order, and no fan in the bathroom. The hotel is up on a...

As usual the breakfast was good and the bed was comfortable. The room was clean all except the bathroom floor and was really sticky. The coffee pot didn't work as well, but I was able to go downstairs and get coffee. We've stayed in lots of HIE and won't hesitate to stay again. Thanks for a good nights rest!
