Decent value--they honored a coupon we had. However, bed was not as comfortable as other Holiday Inn Express we've stayed in although this one was advertised as "Brand New". Fortunately we had two queen beds as one squeaked every time we moved so we switched to the other one after a short time. Shower was difficult to adjust and not...

But, of course, first impression is not everything! The suit ( I cannot call it" the room"!) had a very spacious bedroom with the desk, king size bed and large TV and a living room with a fully equipped kitchenette and, again, a very large flat screen! We were all smiles after paying for "all these" $99! So , if...

Reviewed 11 October 2014

Stayed here on way back to South Carolina and found it to be a very nice hotel. Usually the comfort of the bed is my biggest concern and the bed here was very comfortable. The room was clean and the breakfast was adequate with the normal items usually available in HI hotels. The front desk clerk was stressed when we...

We recently stayed for one night. As we requested to be on the top floor, away from the elevator shaft, ice machine, and stairs, we had a quiet night. Unfortunately the A/C was not operating properly - the compressor was not coming on to cool and dehumidify the room. Because the outdoor temp was fairly cool, we didn't realize the...
