“Wonderful place to stay in southeastern Kentucky!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2010

This is a great place to stay as well as a great location for all travel access points in southeastern Kentucky! There are different restaurants in the area to select from as well as a convenient shopping center with a Walmart that is about less than a mile from the hotel.
Pro: Check-in was very friendly and fast customer service, room was very clean (my white socks stayed white while in my room unlike other hotels I've stayed at), well maintained hotel both inside and out, bed was very comfortable and not too firm.
Con: Complementary breakfast not that good, chair and hassock in room not very comfortable.

The TripAdvisor review "Best place to stay in London, KY" from Nov 12, 2007 that I read prior to booking a room for my leisure trip is spot on when I stayed in Sept 2010!

This hotel is very neat and clean. The staff was extra nice and helped with getting us a crib for the baby. We had stopped in Corbin,KY, the town just before London. We left the hotel in Corbin (Comfort Inn and Suites), b/c it was disgusting. I was traveling with my sister, 4 yr old son and 3 month old. We were so happy we left Corbin and staying at this hotel. Awesome service!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2010

London, Kentucky will never win any awards as one of America's more exciting cities though night in and night out, it seems to attract hundreds of travelers because of its physical location, roughly midway between Cincinnati and Knoxville. None of London's accommodations is better that the Holiday Inn Express which sits about two-tenths of a mile east of the I-75 freeway that cuts the state in half.

The HIE sits somewhat awkwardly off a side road behind a service station, but it is more than worth the added trouble of figuring out "the how-to" of getting to its front door. The front desk personnel when we arrived were solicitous, open, and extremely friendly. The lobby is hardly beautiful but it is well-appointed as is the adjacent breakfast room. An elevator is easy to access (unlike so many new motels) and the rooms are excellent. The bathroom was filled with an over-abundance of towels and wash clothes, the bedroom was spacious, the bed itself and the chairs were very comfortable, the small microwave and the even larger refrigerator very useful. The dressers in the room offered tons of space for storage should anyone wish it. The work desk was unusually large and each room is fitted with both high speed Internet access and wi-fi which worked without a hitch. The proprietors seem very conscious of trying, in as many ways as they can, to emulate those luxuries usually seen only in the most expensive large city hotels. One would have to be extremely picky to dislike the Holiday Inn Express.

None of the above should suggest, however, that this motel is perfect because it is not. The rug in our large bedroom, for instance, was stained and needed a very thorough shampooing. Though our room smelled fresh and clean, the hallway was somewhat clammy and slightly less than pleasant whenever we had to be in it. The breakfast, while certainly more than adequate, was only "average" and one of the less appealing of the many motels in which we stopped on our most recent ten-day trip. There were other "problems" as well but like those above, all were minor when compared with the far more numerous "pluses."

London's Holiday Inn Express is a solid choice for a good night's rest. No-one ought to hesitate to stop there when in the area.

Stayed over night on drive home to Michigan from Florida. We checked in at midnight. The night desk clerk was very friendly and helpful! He explained my charges and highlighted some amenities at the hotel. Our room was neat, clean and very nicely decorated. The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in away from home! The pillows and blankets were of high quality also! We had a great sleep. The following morning, we enjoyed a complimentary breakfast before leaving. The breakfast was the best complimentary hotel breakfast I've ever seen... biscuits and gravy, sausage, eggs, muffins, bagels, toast, donuts, cinnamon buns, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, orange juice, apple juice, coffee, tea, milk... wow!! And did I say complimentary?!! Again, upon check out, the clerk was most friendly! The hotel was clean, neat and nicely decorated. We also had free wifi. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone passing through or staying in London, KY.
