This hotel worked out just fine. It was clean, friendly staff and I felt safe traveling alone. They have a restaurant downstairs that was busy. However, I did not get a chance to eat there. There is a pool and exercise room too. The showers are nice and the bathrooms have great mirrors and lighting for make-up application. Ample parking.

The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was nice as well. It was a little loud because our room was right next to the elevator. They did allow us to have a later check out and an early check in, which was nice. I do not recommend eating at the burger joint inside the lobby. Very unprofessional service and food... More

I've stayed at many Holiday Inn Expresses before and this is by far the worst one. First of all when I booked this hotel there was a restaurant listed as something that the hotel has.

I booked here for a conference because I had to make my reservations at the last minute. I was pleasantly surprised as this place was much better than expected.

As others have mentioned, they are currently renovating the hotel, so the ground floor is full of construction and there's no restaurant or bar, though they do have breakfast and it looked like room service was still available.
