We stayed here for a third time over the last couple of years during our travels to our summer vacation spot. Due to my allergies to cigarettes I requested a non-smoking room on a non-smoking floor. While our 3rd floor room was now "non-smoking" it had a funky "sweet" odor of air fresheners. Conversations with desk staff gleaned the information that the third entire floor was once a smoking floor. Only one room is marked for smoking now, but some smoke odors continue to persist, in all liklihood through the ventilation system when it is shut down at night. Smoking is still allowed at this hotel on the first floor which made it very unpleasant to walk through the first floor corridor to the back of the hotel where our car and boat trailer were parked. Yet again the pancake machine was not functioning (the 3rd different Holiday Inn Express I've stayed at this summer where this was the case). The bed, as always, was very comfortable as were the pillows. Because of the smoke & air freshener residue, I gave the room a lower rating than I would have otherwise. The breakfast staff and desk staff were friendly and helpful. But the persistent smoke odors in this property are a game-changer for me. While Holiday Inn Express is a brand that I stay in often, I will try to limit my stays to 100% non-smoking properties from now on.
