The staff was friendly and accommodating, the room was clean, and the breakfast was pretty good. I would not recommend booking through the Holiday Inn Express website. When we arrived, there were more rooms booked than I had reserved and for a much higher rate. Although the staff rectified the error in number of rooms, they were unable to adjust...

Great hotel - great location. Warm and friendly greeting. Early check-in into the room of my choice. Top floor, far away from elevators and ice machines. Hotel was decorated for the holidays. And as always a complementary breakfast. I would strongly recommend this hotel.

We chose this particular hotel bot only because we like the brand, but we were visiting family in the area and were also going to Mohegan Sun. This seemed the perfect spot and to our delight, it was. Only a few miles from family and the casino, we were pleasantly surprised when we found that we were just minutes from...

My boyfriend had booked a room that was supposed to have a queen size bed and when we got to the room, the bed was only a full size. The bathroom was also really tiny and there wasn't a whole lot of space in the room overall. We did have a nice time but for what we paid, it could've...

Stayed here again the other Saturday night and was not disappointed, Room was spacious and very comfortable. Check-in was a breeze as usual. Bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. Shuttle service was a little slow, but the driver is one of the best in the area. Our only complaint was when we called to be picked up around 10:00...

Our room looked tired and could use a good updating. While the staff interaction was good, the room itself just did not sparkle as most HIE rooms do. The breakfast room was alright, but at 9:00 AM, 3 of 5 coffee urns were empty, and only ones on the upper level had coffee.

As the title states, whenever I stay here it's a good stay. The Front End staff has seemed to have changed since the last time I've been here however they still seem friendly. Rooms are comfortable and typical of a Holiday Inn Express. You know what to expect when staying here. My biggest gripe was that the Hotel Wi-Fi was...
