Great stay in a new place with clean room, comfy bed , friendly staff, healthy breakfast choices, and great windows to block sound. Loved the convenience off the highway and just a few miles to town. Pet friendly with a small fee.

The location is great as it is located about a mile and a half from central Berea. The room was very clean and comfortable. Front desk staff were really nice on check-in.

We stayed here one night and were impressed. The hotel is clean, beds are comfortable, staff is friendly, and convenient location about a mile or two from the Art District. Good spot to stay if you are in the area. We headed to the Boone Tavern for breakfast so we did not eat at the HIE.

Boone Tavern dining is such a nice experience! We often recommend them for those looking for a 5-star place for any meal of the day. Thank you so much for staying with us!

Any one interested in arts & crafts is ,most likely aware of what is offered in Berea! It's a wonderful little town and Holiday Inn Express Berea is a very nice place to stay when you go there!

Hotel located conveniently off highway. Odd looking exterior but this is only because this is a re-branded property. Yes they improved the interior lobby area very nicely and it looks like a HIE should look like. Not a lot a parking when I arrived and place was busy. Room was nice, Direct TV which featured plenty of channels and internet...

Stayed here over a year ago when it was a different chain, but since Holiday Inn took it over, it is better than ever. Their web site says hotel was fully re-modeled, and they are not kidding. Every room, lobby, breakfast area, elevator, and staircase has been totally re-done. The entire hotel is beautiful and well maintained. The entire staff;...

Thank you SO MUCH for the great feedback!! You pretty much covered everything! It's such an encouragement to us to know that the months of renovations (and jackhammers) were well worth it!

We stopped here for a night. Staff was great very friendly. Room was nice and big. Pool water was a little chilly, the pool and pool room were very clean. Breakfast is a typical holiday inn breakfast. Overall happy with our stay and would stay here again if in the area.

THANK YOU for taking time to respond! I do love hearing good things! Just to reassure you, we'd recently refilled the pool so it's probably just needed some time warming back up. It's usually kept at 82ish degrees. Should be a nice comfy temperature the next time you visit!
