Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Dissatisfied with the Booking Company."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The booking company did not communicate my request of two Rooms with two Queen size beds. Instead we received two Rooms with one Bed in each room. The hotel was full and not able to accommodate my request nor would they provide a full refund. We had to cram 7 people into two Rooms with one bed in each room. I will not use the booking service again. I contacted the booking company and was told this would be escalated. To date I have not received any response.

"Overpriced and not very nice front desk lady."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The place is way overpriced for its location. Paid $200 for a view of a hill in the parking lot. I asked for a later check out time and the old lady working behind the desk was very rude about it. Other than that, it was ok.

"Nice room, nice people."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Overall the hotel is a good place to stay. Easy to find, right off the highway. Easy to navigate around town from the hotel and a gas station right next door. The room was nice, staff were very nice and accommodating. Love that it is a pet friendly hotel. We had our dog with us and staff were able to accommodate a first floor room right by the doors. Not too much grass to walk her in, but no issues. Breakfast was included, so that was a nice bonus. If you are looking for all the bells and whistles the exercise room was a total of one treadmill and one bike, the laundry was right off the lobby and the pool was small and the breakfast area overlooked the pool. We did not use any of these amenities. Overall, quiet, clean and accessible.
