I booked my room through Expedia. When we arrived at the hotel to check in about 9pm Sat. evening, we got up to the room and realized that they had given us a room with one king sized bed.

This hotel was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and professional. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The hotel is easy to find and in a good location. There was a great variety of hot and cold items for breakfast. This hotel is exactly what we expect from a Holiday Inn Express.
