Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express Ohio State Fair Grounds

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Friendly helpful staff, limited frills"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Booked during Arnold classic for $211/night. Not worth the inflamed rate. Appreciated the in room fridge though the "gym" was disappointing. Had to go to another gym to work out. Was mostly quiet until 6am when kids started running up the hall. Room was generally clean, and breakfast buffet was nice. All in all, I will not book this hotel again for the price. Maybe for $100 less! The staff was nice though.

"Everything went great. The hotel and it's Management anticipated our every wish and took care of us. It went so well that I have booked our conference there for next year. I have passed the web site on to others and will continue to do so. The Machinist Union is always setting up events all over the world, and I will continue to pass this information on to my brothers and sisters." S.C. - Biloxi, MS
