We decided to stop in late at night while traveling. The staff at check-in were extremely pleasant. We had the same experience with the morning crew. The hotel is undergoing some renovations, but we found the hotel to be clean and well-kept. A good night's sleep!

Almost all the good things we come to expect from HI Express. The staff was cordial--at the desk, in the halls, on the elevator. Within easy distance of a number of eateries to choose from. Room was comfortable, as usual. Only drawback, and why I rate it only very good, is that the room, meant to accommodate at least four,...

The building can sneak up on you due to a small sign and an exterior remodel that makes it look like a condo/townhouse complex. The employee I talked to said this was to keep it in line with the town's aesthetic. The parking lot is small, and you have to be careful to not park in the spaces meant for...
