The hotel was similar to other Holiday Inn Express hotels we've stayed in across the country -- good value, comfortable bed, nice-sized room, etc. Our room was fairly quiet and looked out toward a lake, which was a surprise considering its location next to a major highway in a very urban area. Front desk staff were very friendly and professional. The only "odd" thing that occurred during our visit -- and it happened each of the three full days (four nights) we were there -- was having a note placed under our door each morning advising us that because we had a Do Not Disturb sign on our door, our room was not serviced that day. Now I could understand delivering such a note later in the day, perhaps as early as noon, but one day we found it a little after 8:00am. That's a little early to be informing guests that their room "was" not serviced. To Housekeeping's credit, the note also indicated that if we wanted our room serviced to call the Front Desk before 1:00pm, which we did and which resulted in the servicing of our room later in the day. We raised this issue with front desk personnel, suggesting that the note be delivered later (perhaps after the breakfast room closes) and that "was not serviced" be changed to "may not be serviced."
Otherwise, our stay was very pleasant and we would not hesitate to stay here again.
