Reviewed 28 May 2014

Stayed here twice recently; rooms comfortable and clean, friendly staff, good basic breakfast items. Renovation should fix minor problems with malfunctioning room door latch & misleading TV channel selections (no PBS, 'jewelry shopping channel' instead frustrated us). In both cases, front desk tried to help by switching our room and by contacting their Dish cable provider (couldn't correct problem though ;(

Room Tip: During renovations, requesting a room away from ongoing work is suggested.

I am sure you have heard that expression, but we were so late checking in after a horrific ride in the night, And..... the woman at the front desk was cordial, attentive and responsive to our needs and we felt very welcomed despite the lateness and the fact I said we were on our way by phone to keep this reservation alive.
.
The next morning, I loved the fact that breakfast was abundant, the pool was warm and children were swimming at that ungoldly hour of 7 am, and walking in with towels, the parents looked relieved to have them waddle in the water after the long rides on the road I am sure
Thank you Holiday Inn, our stay was just wonderful.

Room Tip: It felt very safe with adequate lighting everywhere, and yet our room had darkened shades.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on our recent road trip to Florida. It is in a good location where there are several other hotels within a short distance. Everything was satisfactory, except I was more than annoyed when they told me that they would not honor the AAA discount because they only had several rooms available. I specifically used the Tour Guide Book from AAA to find a hotel, and this was recommended with an advertisement stating clearly that they offer a AAA discount. Yet when we booked our room we were denied the discount.

Checked-in just after midnight on a Thursday night / Friday morning to a cheerful and sweet lady (can't remember her name). But I loved how engaging she was, especially for the time that I was arriving. We talked about how I tall was and how her family was as tall as I am... and how - at 5'9"- she was the shortest in her family.

Anyway...the room I got on floor #3 was *not* so awesome: the third floor is a technically a non-smoking floor, but the entire floor had a hint of cigarette smoke throughout. Not the clerk's fault per se, but still a little annoying for a non-smoker.

And...our room was spacious and clean, but was lukewarm due to the A/C not working. The fan function worked, but there was no cold air. This would surely be a bigger issue if we had stayed in June...or had checked in during the day when the sun was out. I didn't bother to complain because it so late and we were only staying the one night.

We did get a late check out at 1pm, which was nice... and the room attendants (maids) were all very nice and cordial when I saw any of them in the hallway.

Overall - the experience was good, not great... But compared to the other motel options off if this exit, HI Express still seems like the best choice.

Everyone was wonderful from check in to check out. The lady at breakfast was so accommodating. The room was very clean comfortable and quiet. I have a small yorkie and this hotel was great for dog owners. I would stay here again without a thought. It's on my snowbird list when I travel N to S.

We were traveling south and needed a place to stay for the night. We booked this hotel based on reviews from Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The person at the main desk had our reservation and everything went smoothly. The room was clean and comfortable. It had a refrigerator with a freezer for our ice packs. The town is small so all the restaurants are close by.
It is an easy on, easy off I 95. The breakfast was delicious and everyone was very friendly. We would stay there again.

Nice place to stay on your travels. We happened into stop on our way to Orlando from Maine. After a 14 hr. travel we were glad to have a comfortable room even for a short stay. The complaints we have are since they didn't have many rooms left they refused any kind of discount (coupons or AAA), also the complementary breakfast didn't do us any good due to the fact we always leave around 5:00 am . Rooms were very clean, updated and quiet. We felt comfortable staying there. Liked how we needed to go through the lobby to get to our room, that made it feel safer. Parking lot was lit very well and were in eye view of our room and the lobby.
