This hotel was quiet and clean. The food at the breakfast bar was awesome and a variety of excellent choices. I have never had a bad experience here. The staff are courteous friendly and willing to help make your stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. I may see you here sometime👍

Good stay at a recent family vacation. Sorta weird getting back to hotel from main road but once there staff was nice, rooms good and clean. The breakfast was average and ended at 10, not good if you like to sleep in on vacation.

I had a late arrival and needed a late check out. The staff was very accommodating of my request, price adjustments, and room needs. I would definitely recommend a stay at this location. Breakfast was good, and service was prompt.

The rooms were clean and comfortable and a pretty good breakfast. There were also two nice restaurants and great shopping all within walking distance. The service was good, but it would have been nice to have a complementary newspaper. The shuttle service to the wedding and reception was great.

This location is quiet considering that it is next to a high school and the heavy traffic from Randall Ave. The front desk staff and hgousekeeping are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in the middle of every restaurant and shop imaginable. The breakfast is good.

Excellent location, staff was extremely helpful with a situation I had towards the end of my stay, and the parking was safe. This is a busy hotel, I was impressed with the cleanliness! Close to grocery stores, gas stations and a very wide variety of dining options. Will book here again!

We stayed one night at this Holiday Inn Express, and enjoyed a comfortable stay. The king bed was just right and room was spacious & clean. The breakfast area has a contemporary look & feel and great tasting coffee and food. I recommend staying here if you are in the area.
