Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express & Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Wonderful staff and surprise appetizers!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We brought a group to the Holiday Inn. The staff was great and there was a surprise guest appreciation event with appetizers and drinks. It was a welcomed surprise. The facilities and breakfast were great too.

20-Jul-2017 Verified Review, stayed from Tue Jul 18 to Wed Jul 19 2017 at a $92.00 group rate.
"Great Stay!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Holiday Inn Express Leland provided an enjoyable three night stay for my family. The building is very clean and well kept. The rooms are incredibly spacious and could easily sleep 6 people if necessary. The staff was most helpful and courteous. We were able to wash clothes onsite. A generous breakfast was included each morning.

27-Jun-2016 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Jun 25 to Mon Jun 27 2016 at a $129.00 group rate.
"Beware if Bringing a Group/Team."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The accommodations were OK, but we were "greeted" by the group sales person who immediately told us that they were worried about our group acting up because they had another group of high schoolers in earlier in the week and they had pulled the fire alarm. I felt as if I had to defend my kids before we even walked in the door. She was extremely negative. Then they had our reservation wrong. We had arranged to check-in at 11:00 on a Friday, but the hotel had us checking in on Saturday. I was there with 44 athletes and no place to stay. The manager was helpful and after having to leave, go to the beach and come back, they got us rooms. They were not the rooms that we had reserved. We were supposed to have two double beds in each room, but had to settle for one king and a pull out couch. They acted like they were doing us a favor, reminding us that it was Azalea Festival Weekend. Saturday night, they rented out rooms to several college age groups who were drinking and being very loud. The night personnel called our assistant coach down, threatening to call the police for some of these older kids who were not even ours. They then smugly showed him the monitor of a group of our kids in the hall, who had stepped out to see who was making so much noise. We had several of our high school aged girls who were uncomfortable in the halls while going to their rooms by these college aged groups. Fortunately, they handled the situation well and just ignored them. Never was there an apology for messing up our reservation. I was not impressed with the older group sales lady. We booked through Bookit.com. Beware if you want to book a team/group!

Response from Management on 20-Apr-2015:
Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay. We are disappointed that you felt our efforts were not up to your expectations. To be fair, the signed contract (signed by Rebecca M.) in our files stated a Saturday arrival, not a Friday arrival. When the group arrived and stood at the front desk it was totally unexpected. Yes, it was one of our busiest weekends of the year and we were doing our best to find rooms in our hotel for your students at the last moment. With only 3 chaperones for 44 students we felt that group policies should be reviewed for their safety as well as other guests. It was not our intent to make you feel unwelcomed. We were simply not expecting you and were unprepared for you. I think the staff made what could have been a bad situation into one that accommodated all the group on just 2 floors to be near the 3 chaperones. We appreciate your letting us know about your disappointment. In the future, our sales staff will make an extra effort to confirm the dates with the groups before arrival so this does not happen to another one.
"Outstanding and Reasonably Priced"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
After shopping around for different places for lodging, we picked Holiday Inn Express for its great location for sightseeing and the beaches. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and family. I can't wait to go back on my next vacation. GREAT JOB! Hats off to your staff, especially your breakfast crew. Thanks.
