“A nice find on top of a hill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2008

After ten hours of driving my husband and I were just looking for a decent place to stay when we stumbled on this Holiday Inn Express. It was still called a Hampton Inn in our GPS and apparently has just changed. It appears to be almost completely renovated. Because it is at the top of a hill and a little hidden by an office building it is a bit hard to find. However, it is a very pleasant find.

The carpet and all of furnishings appear to be new. Our room had two very nice queen beds with both soft & firm pillows. There is a large flat screen TV and a refrigerator. The bathroom is lovely with a new tub/shower and sink, great towels, and a nice shower curtain. However this is where we found a couple of strange things: there was no place for the toilet paper...it sits on a self, and there are no towel racks. Perhaps these just haven’t been installed yet. Breakfast comes with the price of the room.

The young lady at the front desk was quite pleasant and helpful. When asked for suggestions she recommended a casual Italian restaurant named Leggio’s that was just about ½ mile away and had great food.

This place seems to be trying very hard to please its customers. Hot drinks are available at all times in the lobby there were cookies sitting out when we checked in.

  • Liked — All furnishings seemed very new; front desk very helpful
