Spacious rooms, comfortable stay. Staff was friendly, room was clean, and room was bigger than expected. Breakfast was convenient and fast, we enjoyed the variety of choices. Check out was a breeze and there was plenty of parking. Overall would stay again if passing through.

Everything about this hotel impressed us! Very nice room, extra large bathroom, clean pool (although a tad chilly), smiling staff, very large hot breakfast! Nice place to relax before we begin the rest of our trip. 😀🙌

For a small town hotel, there's definitely room to breathe around here! I've always found the spaciousness of our rooms and pool very impressive! Do come again the next time you're traveling through!

Convenient location. Clean hotel. Staff was very friendly. As a IHG member we had our room upgraded to a King Suite with jacuzzi tub. It was nice but did not use tub. Although the room was really large, I found it to be not very well lit.

We were returning to Michigan from Flordia and was looking for a place to rest and found this place. The hotel looked new and everything was great.

The Holiday Inn Express in Berea, KY is exceptionally clean and convenient for those traveling on I-75. This hotel provides a comfortable place to stay when visiting Berea College and the surrounding area. The only negative aspect of the room was that noise from adjacent rooms was easily heard.

Berea College is a great place! We have special rates for parents of students and alumni so make sure you ask about those. So sorry about the noise - if you're ever being disturbed at an unreasonable hour, just give us a call at the desk and we can see what we can do.

This H.I. really does a nice job. Seems to be a newer location and it nice to have a H.I. in the area of Berea for traveling purposes. I did not have a reservation and hit a weekend that had a local festival in the area - my bad! But they made us welcome and gave us a great room...

We were traveling through Berea, Ky on the way to a funeral further south. We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Our room was clean, odorless and had updated features. The indoor pool was actually heated which made it nice for a quick swim. The breakfast buffet was hot and had a good variety. Very friendly staff.

I booked this hotel using the 1-800 holiday number. As I was booking the room I asked if they accepted cash and after researching their notes they stated they did.

Oh my goodness! I am so sorry to hear about this miscommunication! We're on the ball to make sure that our reservation department now knows that, while we do accept cash, we also do always require a credit card to be swiped and authorized at checkin. This does result the in the bank associated with the card holding that authorization...
