One of the best Holiday Inn Express I have stayed in. Must be new or recently remodeled, the lobby was nice and roomy. The room had multiple USB ports which was very helpful. Very clean and the staff was very friendly no matter whom you spoke with.

My husband and I have stayed at this property over the last few years as we head south for the winter. After a 9 hour drive, it is a welcomed stop. The hotel had been remodeled over the past summer and I was very impressed with the room decor. A fresh, airy appearance with a
