Great location and the pool slide. That is the two positives. Our Grandchildren couldn't stay in the pool because they started coughing and skin burning after 1/2 hour. The ladies pool bathroom toilet didn't work. There was mold along the poool pillars. I took a picture and will attach later. Front desk staff not that responsive. Didn't go 100% to...

Stayed here for Y tournament games. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms nice. Bed comfortable although the couch bed needed a new mattress. Breakfast delicious with a great selection. Need better ventilation in pool area, chlorine awful. Great location!

Staff very friendly, helpful and nice. Large King Size room, but the bed seemed like it needed replacing, Dusty and dirty around the refrigerator, otherwise nice and clean. This is a kid friendly hotel, with a water park. Just need to keep a quiet wing for those without kids and barking dogs. Nice breakfast!

Very nice clean hotel with courteous staff. We came to town with other families for the state swim meet. The hotel would've gotten 5 stars except that the smell of the chlorine in the pool area was overwhelming and many of the kids started coughing once they started swimming and we weren't able to swim for very long. These are...

Was luck that Serge was there at arrival. He helped direct me to parking and then came to open the back door. He was great. The hotel is what you would expect - the lobby area worked well for a quick pre-meeting. I'll stay again.

I stayed here in May and did not give a very good review for various reasons, but I have nothing to complain about this trip. They stay was fine I had no issues the room was clean and breakfast was hot. Can't really ask more than that. The hot tub was very warm and overall the stay was good.

We travel often to Aberdeen to visit family and always stay at the Holiday Inn Express. Staff is welcoming and accommodating. The pool is perfect for our young kids (ages 5 and 1) to burn off some energy.
