We needed a clean, safe stopover on our way to Southern Georgia and found a gem in this Holiday Inn Express. It is about 5 miles off of I95 and is in a quiet light cation. We enjoyed a free full breakfast and were on our way in the morning. Great value.

We came here because all the hotels in Greenville were booked for homecoming. The hotel was clean. Check in was a breeze. The rooms were pleasant. There was a nice breakfast spread. Altogether a good experience.

This HIE is a tad better than most at which I've stayed. We had a very spacious room with a small fridge and microwave. The noise level of the AC unit was pleasing and consistent, unlike many HIEs that use rumbling, noisy units that repeatedly cycle on and off. We did have a major service issue regarding the cleanliness of... More

We stayed at the Wilson downtown Holiday Inn Express for three nights while attending a wedding. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the self-serve breakfast was a little more extensive than many hotels. Beds were very comfortable.

So clean. So friendly. Pool was open. Breakfast was good. Fine stay! What more can I say. Little off the beaten path from 95. So don't expect a quick 95 exit. Also, about 22 minutes away from Five County Stadium. Go see the Carolina MudCats. Nice.

Wilson is a convenient stopping point if you are traveling on I 95. The Holiday Express has excellent staff and wonderful new mattresses. For the money, we could not have found a more comfortable overnight motel.

Very nice room. In town for a bridge tournament. Very quiet rooms and a very nice free breakfast. All the food was fresh and presented very nicely.

We needed a place to stay en route to Florida and prefer to avoid staying right next to freeways. Being a few miles closer to the center made this an easy and clear choice. Kathleen at the counter was most friendly and helpful, and surprisingly the hotel was nearly empty - I don't understand, because the rate was very reasonable... More
