We spent the night at the Holiday Inn Express Berea on our way home from a weekend away. The room was quiet, clean, and comfortable. The beds have soft and firm pillows, which are always good for those who are not sure what they liked. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, but fairly typical. Recommended!

We arrived an hour after check in and our room wasn't ready, so we got off to a rough start. But overall the place was clean, the free breakfast bar was very good, and it was quiet there. And in a good location for meals and amenities.

Traveled to the area for an overnight visit. The hotel is newly remodeled and met our expectations. Staff friendly and helpful. No complaints. The complimentary breakfast was good and they even had someone there to help if you needed anything.

My husband and I had Friday night tickets to Renfro Valley (Sept. 16) and had booked our room here at Holiday Inn in Berea. We checked in before the show and went up to our room to drop off our bags. We had been given room 202, which had one of those interior doors that shares with the next room....

OH NO!! We're usually really good at making sure those shades are pulled out a bit from the decorative side curtain things!!
