"Hotel Stay"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Very clean facility; breakfast was hot and good. Room was a little stuffy smelling, but otherwise good. Parking directions guidance was not clear prior to arriving.

"Not very accommodating and room selection."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Registration (check in was not pleasant. Though I am a Gold level member, I was not recognized nor would they look up my membership for points. I don't know if my points were recorded due to making a fast reservation through a non Holiday Inn agent. The room did not have a chair for the desk so I could work and the one finally received malfunctioned but I survived with it to do my work. Check out was, “you made reservations through another agent so you will get a receipt via internet. Worst stay yet!

"It was a normal experience."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Nothing outstanding to note,within walking distance of my meeting which was a plus. Parking was limited and I had to park next to a large truck that squeezed me into a tiny spot.

"Good downtown location, good luck finding the elevators."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Hotel is located in a good spot in down town baton rouge. Reasonably clean. modest breakfast. The only real problem I had was that there are absolutely no signs pointing to the elevators and the floors have odd layouts with several nooks that look like the hall to the elevator but not. I walked laps on the floor and even ground floor looking for the elevator.

"Trouble at checkin."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I work for the state of Louisiana and reserve all rooms through hotel planner. The approved in our office who handles prepayment for our rooms faxed the form needed and received a confirmation that the fax was received. The lady at the front desk was very disrespectful and said she leaves work at 3:00 on Friday so if was sent after that she doesn't have it. I checked in on a Monday. It wasn't the fact that we had to resend the form but her attitude. I will not use this hotel again for business or personal travel. Nor will I recommend the hotel to other state employees. I also had an issue with my key card not working three times. I wonder about the security of the guests since I simply told the clerk all three times that my key was not working and they reprogrammed without verify I was the occupant of the room.

"It was just ok!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The room I was in was right next to the exit door to the super small parking lot. I had to park on the street and get up super early to make sure I didn't get a ticket. The room next to me had dogs that barked all night. The room itself was not well lit and very dark. The bed was so high I had to jump up to get on it. The bathroom was nice. The breakfast in the morning was wonderful.

"Holiday Inn Express Hotel Review."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I really enjoyed my stay the breakfast was excellent, the bed was HEAVEN I slept like a baby. My only draw back was parking, the parking lot behind the hotel is very small; I was able to park at a close by meter once a hotel representative informed me that the meter maids stop at 5:00PM.

I enjoyed my stay, even though I was homesick and wanted to get home to my babies but the hotel was very clean, my room was clean, nice and pleasant. The workout room was peaceful and clean. The breakfast was also pretty good. I really enjoyed it Friday because they had bacon on the buffet. I would return.

"My Stay"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
It was okay. This was my second week staying at this location due to work. This time the bathroom bathtub was dirty, it had a ring around it, every time someone flushed their toilet next door my toilet would run. But, other than that I had an enjoyable stay. The attendants at the front desk was super nice and professional. The breakfast was good, I wish the smoke area was not facing the busy street because I could not enjoy my nicotine (even though it is unhealthy for me)without people passing by rolling their eyes at me like I was smoking crack or something or asking me for change. I would more than likely come back though.

"The room was good, breakfast, not so much!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The room was comfortable and had everything I needed. It was clean and the A/C worked. The breakfast was mediocre at best. No biscuits for the sausage gravy. No milk for the cereal. The juice machine wasn't working and the manager had to be hunted down to turn the key for it to come on. The hostess kept repeating that the truck hasn't arrived yet. As soon as it did she'd put out the missing things. That truck didn't make it before my co worker and I left for our meeting. The butter hadn't been put out and by the time it was the pancakes and toast we made were cold. The one thing I was looking forward to was the breakfast.
