Check-in was easy and front desk person very nice. Room clean and comfortable. We didn't like the location as it was a very congested area making it difficult to get in and out. One of my main complaints with all Holiday Inn Express' is they don't take into consideration people that have to be gluten free. With all of the...

Thank you for your review. I'm glad to hear that your room was clean and comfortable. I am sorry to hear that you were unable to find something to eat for breakfast. We will look into providing a gluten free cereal. We appreciate your feedback and will use it as a tool to better serve our guests in the future.

Although the room was clean and the customer service ok, the beds are simply too uncomfortable to sleep. The mattresses are hard and lumpy, as are the pillows, which feel like they have been stuffed with rags. The parking lot is intensely overlit at night (for safety), so the curtains cannot block enough of the light to make it comfortable...

Stayed here with my family during the holidays and it was our home away from home! Bright spotless rooms, comfortable beds, delicious breakfast and fast wifi. Wonderful staff!

This hotel is quiet and clean. Just off the freeway in the middle of a bunch of other hotels. But we have found it to be a pleasant place to stay. Priced lower than other holiday inns in the area. Didn't care for the breakfast selections but there are other restaurants close by.

Had booked a suite for 4 nights. Couldn't stand the stench in the room or in the hallways. Room smelled horrible. Both mornings, cleaning staff were using very strong aerosols sprays in rooms and hallways to mask odors. Literally made me ill.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your stay. I apologize that the aerosols were "strong". We recently changed vendors and are in the process of finding a neutral aerosol for our rooms. Your feedback is helpful in making this decision. We would appreciate the opportunity to show you that we take all guests feedback serious...

I do like holiday inns, even though the property is in nice shape, the staff attitude has to change dramatically.
