I stayed in HIE Exton for six nights in the beginning of summer and the overall experience was good. This was my first time in HIE and I´m pretty sure that I will be using these hotels in the future too based on my Exton experience.
The hotel is located in the middle of shopping area a bit outside of the town of Exton. I found the location good, cause there were lost of shops and restaurants even within a walking distance, easy excess to the highway and a train station to Philadelphia pretty close. The area was quiet enough in the nights and I felt safe there.
The reception staff was nice, polite and friendly all the time and I felt welcome. The hotel itself was a bit outdated and shabby, but well maintained, clean and fresh. Breakfast was basic American breakfast; eggs, sausage/bacon/patties, toasts, yogurt, fresh baked cinnamon rolls/muffins, juicy and a pancake machine. Coffee was served all day in the breakfast room. There was also a tiny gym with some basic exercise devices.
We got the room from the third floor and it was huge. As the hotel, the room was clean, but a bit shabby. Flat screen tv, coffee maker, fridge, huge king bed. It was ok, not bad at all. The only downside was extremely thin windows. It felt like we were having the window open all the time, cause all the sounds from the outside could be heard so well (but luckily there wasn´t much noise at all). And the windows were not as well able to keep the stink bugs outside. I read that those bugs are huge problem in Pennsylvania area especially in the spring time, so can´t blame the hotel for that. But maybe some info about those nasty bugs would have helped in advance, so I wouldn´t have freaked out about those in the first place...For those who are not familiar with those bugs, they are not harmful, just nasty.
However, I can recommend the hotel everyone, who is looking for an accommodation from this area with reasonable price and good location. I would stay here again.
