For a hotel that is supposted to be newish it was as though it was put up in a hurry and then not taken care of.The rooms smelled, carpet in hallways and in room very dirty and stained. Tile in bathroom was terrible. It was like they hired untrained labor to lay flooring using stick on flooring and the seal the gaps with puddy. The grout was gone around the shower wall and the shower door opened inward instead of outward, which made taking a shower very difficult. The furniture was very worn in places and the back of the desk chair was broken off. There was little to no sound barrier between rooms.
Breakfast was terrible. The powdered eggs and frozen biscuits were just plan nasty. Coffee was watered down, the cereal was not bad. Ended up going to Waffel House during our 4 day stay.
Lobby was nice, clean and gave one the impression that this hotel was in good shape. Staff was friendly when they were at the desk. Twice I had to call HELLO before someone came out to help.
Have stayed in Holiday Inn Express in other locations throughout the U.S. and none of them were this bad.
