Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

Nice property, courteous staff, but WAY overpriced.
Will not be staying here again.
200$ for a Holiday Inn Express ?
Uh, no....

Only redeeming point, it is across the parking lot fr a great Mexican place. Otherwise, I would have left already.

My husband and I stayed here one night here, and things were almost perfect.

The room was attractive, spacious and - most importantly - very clean looking. The beds were comfortable and there were two choices of pillows. I'm particular, so I always bring my own.

Breakfast was adequate*; not gourmet but enough choices to get me going. *The skim milk in the carafe by the coffee was spoiled. I added it to my coffee, and at first I thought there was something wrong with the coffee, but it was the milk. I gave the whole milk the sniff test, it was fine, and the coffee was okay.

Ask for a room on the side of the hotel facing away from the highway. Our room overlooked the highway, and it was noisy. I use earplugs, so it didn't affect me, but my husband didn't sleep very well as a result of the noise.

All in all, a nice stay. AND it's right across the parking lot from a terrific little Italian restaurant called Pazani, which I recommend (see my review for Pazani on Trip Advisor).

The complimentary shampoo, conditioner, etc. were of decent quality and smelled good.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the side facing AWAY from the highway and away from the elevators.

The folks at the desk were really nice and made every effort to help us out with directions to our event in the area. I wish I could remember their names, but the lady who checked us in and out was great. The lady who was serving breakfast also made an extra effort to help us out, we needed some ice for a small cooler and instead of sending us back upstairs to get it from the ice machine she got us some ice from her kitchen. These folks made us want to come back and stay here next year when we visit the area again!!

I had a dead car in the morning, and a lovely maintenance man jump started my car. Then the manager gave me very detailed instructions on where to go to get a new battery installed. Both these guys went beyond the call of duty to help me out and make sure I got on the way to my appointment.

The hotel itself was the nicest Holiday Inn I've ever been in. The room was spacious and comfortable. Not as clean as I would like, but OK. The bathroom was great and I liked the amenities in there. Breakfast was good. I especially appreciated the Chobani yogurt and granola that was available.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room off the highway

Me and my husband stayed in the king whirlpool suite which was everything we needed. The room was nice, the whirlpool even better, breakfast was great, and Jay and the young lady in the morning were very friendly and courteous. We were given a late check-out with no problem also we decided to stay here a least once a month to just have a night to ourselves. Wonderful experience!

This hotel is great! The rooms are large, the beds are comfortable, the bathroom is huge! The free breakfast in the morning may be the best free breakfast in any hotel I've ever stayed in. And I stay in hotels multiple times per month. Eggs, chipped beef, sausage, bacon, cereal, donuts, oatmeal, danishes, and fresh fruit are all available and taste great. Even the selection of coffee creamers is plentiful: whole milk, skim milk, cream, half and half, International Delight, Coffeemate, powder, liquid EVERYTHING!!!
The only thing that is weird about the hotel is the entrance and exit. You have to go thru a gas station parking lot in order to get to the hotel. Weird. But there is a grocery store and a couple of restaurants within walking distance from the hotel.
It is also priced very well and the service has always been great to me.

Let me just say that I do not write many reviews, but this hotel deserves 5 stars. I loved it! I searched numerous hotels and read numerous reviews to find the best place to bring my daughter for an overnight girls getaway for her 5th birthday. I read the reviews for this place and I noticed two words that were repetitive, CLEAN and FRIENDLY. This place is impeccably clean and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was GREAT!!! And they were very prompt about refilling anything that ran out. I booked my room a month in advance and noticed the week of my stay that the room was $50 less than the rate I was paying. I called and the manager, John, kindly adjusted my rate. All that I can say is I will be back again and again and again. It was a little hard to find the road that leads up to the hotel through the gas station, but I'd prefer it this way, its kind of tucked away!

I loved it and glad I stayed here!

Room Tip: The suites are pretty spacious, the living room and bedroom are not really separate, buts its cool.
