So a co-worker of mine is a huge Holiday Inn fan so for the last few months I have stayed at numerous Holiday Inn & Holiday Inn Express'. I was here last week and was a bit underwhelmed by this location based on recent experiences with Holiday Inns. The room was sufficient. I was in a double queen, I get whatever room is available because I usually just sleep a night then move on. This time I was in town for a couple of days.
PRO's- Nice staff and decent price. Refrigerator and microwave in room.
CON's- Not as nicely appointed as other HIE's that I have stayed in. Internet was slooow-my wireless card was faster. Vending machines robbed me a couple of times. Location-close enough to restaurants and shopping but I felt like I was in the country. Breakfast-Ehh, didn't expect mom's breakfast but again not what I was used to based on stays at other Holiday Inn's/Express'.
Summary-OK hotel in a small city. Would stay closer to Chicago and commute on next visit.
