My husband and I stayed here for 3 days and our stay was very good. We checked in on Sunday afternoon and then ran out to grab some dinner. When we got back to our room it smelled really back of cat pee and my husband when down to the front desk and they got us a new room right...

We stayed for one night while stopping through the area. We checked in late and nothing around was open past 9 on a Saturday night. The parking lot was full, so we were told by the front desk that we could park at the burger place next door. The room seemed clean and the bed and pillows were comfy. The...

This hotel taught us to look at a room before we decide on staying the night. The room charge was $245.00 a night. The mattress was horrible, the rug in the room was worn bare and I said the room smelled like turpentine all the way to the bedding. My husband said it smelled like paint. We will not return...

We took this reservation based on our past nice stays at holiday inn express. What a disappointment. Carpet and room chairs dirty. Furniture marked and scratched. Beds lumpy. Lighting awful. Bathroom tub had mold around the edge. I do have to say the young man at the desk was very friendly and all the cleaning staff too. Location off I75...

I stayed on January 1 2016 and the front desk clerk mentioned that the 2nd floor had a water leak that was not going to cause us any issues. The room was very warm when we first walked into the room and after turning on the AC for a short while it shut off and it would randomly turn back...

The front desk staff (no matter what time of the day or night) were overly friendly. They never missed an opportunity to say " Have a great day at the beach", or "Merry Christmas", or "Enjoy your day". They always acknowledged us and on Christmas day, they even had a buffet of cookies and hot cocoa for everyone returning to...
