Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The hotel is exactly as expected from a Holiday Inn Express. The staff are friendly, the parking easy and it is very convenient for the M6. I was not disturbed at all by motorway noise. The breakfast is typical Holiday Inn Express. The only issues are the beds are too soft for my liking and there is no electric charging at the hotel or in its vicinity.

Amazing staff - thank you Sharnia! I really hope I’ve spelled your name correctly! Thankyou so much for making us feel so welcome, it made all the difference after a tiring weekend in Cannock Chase forest, especially when we arrived back in the storm. Hope your employer sees this and passes on our gratitude. You really went the extra mile and it was genuinely appreciated. From the Forestry England peeps 🌲🌿☘️🍀

First time staying at this hotel. It's really what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Staff were friendly, rooms were the standard size and clean. Breakfast was buffet style, and included cereals, toast, croissants, sausages, etc. Food was fine, but nothing special. The twin beds were too soft for my liking, but that's just down to personal preference. Our only complaint was that the lift wasn't working. A member of staff carried our cases upstairs for us, but I felt bad for him that Holiday Inn had put him in that position. I'm sure carrying heavy bags up and down stairs isn't good for his back or part of his job description, and I think it is unreasonable of management to expect this of their staff.

Parking was easy. Check in very simple. The room was nice and had everything you needed. I really liked the double door system so you can have just the toilet or the bathroom together. WiFi was decent. The bed was the softest mattress I have had at a hotel, and I absolutely didn't expect it! Also the breakfast was very nice and all you wanted for the price. Bad points; . Room was very hot (But they do provide a fan) . Lift was broken . Beer draft was out of order

Great location for what we needed to break a long drive up. Friendly welcome. Basic room but fine for one night. Lift out of order which was a pain with a big case. Room key stopped working a few times needing a trip to reception. Breakfast was nice. Free parking.

I am an IHG member and have stayed in this chain of hotels several times. However, this time when I checked in at the Holiday inn Stafford I was turned away because I only had cash. The girl on reception told us on arrival that she couldn’t accept cash since COVID. When I argued that I didn’t have a card with me, she got the supervisor, who retorted in a very rude manner, we couldn’t have our room since we weren’t paying by card. We were then turned away. We felt humiliated treated like a couple of criminals for wanting to pay by cash. Will never stay here again

Hello Lisa. We have operated as a cashless business since COVID-19. None of our locations accept cash, It's stated in our welcome email.

I’ve stayed at HIE Stafford a few times now. The rooms are clean and spacious enough with a USB charging port by the bed for your smartphone and TV and tea making facilities in the room. Great access to the motorway and a McDonalds and pub in the complex. Breakfast is included and a great way to start the day. I have to give massive props to the staff here who were so incredibly helpful and made the stay that much better.

We usually choose HIEs when having a short break, and chose this one, which is neat and tidy, with ample parking space. We were greeted by friendly staff. Rooms are quite large enough for two, with a sofa and also a desk and chair. There is the usual decent breakfast offering and friendly waiters. There is no noise from the nearby motorway, but don't book here if you need a good night's sleep, thanks to inconsiderate guests who think it acceptable between the hours of 10.30 pm and 12.45 am to walk along corridors like a herd of elephants, talking at the top of their voices, and then slam doors. As if this wasn't enough, then there was the sound of bathroom fans and presumably showers running until well past 2 am. Eventually I fell asleep, only to be woken at 5.30 by the whole process starting again. Not really the hotels fault but it did spoil my stay
