I spent two night here with my husband and adult daughter. We received a very friendly greeting when checking in and found our room to be clean and comfortable. Besides the 2 queen beds there was a sofa and small sitting room. The water pressure in the shower was good and there was plenty of shelf space in the bathroom....

Stopped here on our way to Atlanta, GA for one night. H.I. Express is one of the few chain hotels we will stay at, and we found this one on par with most of the others where we have stayed. Clean room, friendly staff and an adequate free breakfast. WIFI could be stronger, but over all we enjoyed our stay...

I stayed here for one night this week while traveling for work and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. This hotel is filthy and old-- it's in dire need of some renovations. The dust ruffle on the bed was very badly stained (it did not appear it had ever been washed), there was dust around the furniture, and...

First, let me extend my sincere apologies that my team member did not handle the situation concerning the "distressed woman" in a more appropriate manner! What is added to the matter, is that the front desk did not report it internally either, so I was completely unaware of the issue for follow up. Please know that I will personally address...

Very middle of the road Holiday Inn Express. I've stayed in worse and in better. The staff was nice, the room was clean and the breakfast was spot-on. The facilities themselves are a little dated and could use some freshening up.

This is a typical holiday inn express, The front desk staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms were roomy and comfortable. The hotel is situated directly across the street from Downey Park. Like all holiday inn express hotels, they do offer breakfast every morning.

Let me preface this by saying I cannot say enough about the staff. They were always very friendly at the desk, and housekeeping was so grateful for a tip, she actually left me a note. The room was clean, but really needs some deep cleaning. The dust under the lampshades is thick, as well as on the draw fan in...

Holiday Inn Express has become our "go to" hotel for short trips and this location did not disappoint. The hotel overall was clean and quiet, and the staff friendly and helpful.
