We have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express a couple of times over the years when visiting family. The staff are always friendly and smile and greet you at any time of the day. Rooms were clean. No problems.

This was my first time ever in a Holiday Inn Express. I asked for an upgrade from a double queen to a double queen suite and the clerk promptly provided me with the upgrade. She advised there was a small increase from regular room to suite. She was very kind & courteous.

The lobby was very clean. Our suite was very nice. The 1st floor suite & bathroom was very clean. The room was spacious and comfortable. The furnitue is a little outdated, but still nice. The bed was a pillow top, which proved to be too soft for me. My sister didn't have any complaints about her bed so it is a matter of personal taste.

We didn't have any outside noise interference, the room was quiet and the air conditioner worked incredibly well.

The hotel offers complimentary breakfast but we chose to sleep in past the 9 o'clock deadline.

On the morning of checkout my final bill paperwork was slipped under the door so we were able to leave the keys on the desk without returning to the lobby.

I found the cost to be a little higher than I am accustom to paying with Best Western.

Overall, I do plan to stay at this hotel each time we visit Magnolia and the surrounding areas for business and/or pleasure.

Room Tip: First floor double queen suite is the only reference I have and it was a pleasant room being both cl...

All together, my week-long stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Magnolia AR was very comfortable and the staff was excellent. Very courteous and helpful. Especially Trena and Diane and Scott, the ones I got to know a bit during my stay. I really appreciated their diligence and friendliness to a total stranger from Houston who traveled to a beautiful part of the country to tromp around in the muddy oil fields. I personally want to thank Trena, Diane, and Scott for making my stay more enjoyable..

Oh, and the breakfasts were absolutely wonderful.

After a horrible experience at the Quality Inn in Magnolia, I moved to this hotel. Clean,quiet,comfortable. All staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast bar was excellent. Would stay here again. All rooms non-smoking,but it was worth standing outside for. This is the only place in this town I will stay at. Great place for the price!
