Big suggestion: try not to get a room near an exit door. People are not considerate of sleeping folks when they have to go to work. The staff are very nice offering good suggestions of places to eat or get takeout. Breakfast was good, certainly filling.

Room was ok, typical for HIE properties. What was atrocious was the lack of sanitation at breakfast, and even worse, the front desk attitude when it was brought to their attention. Hotel had a large group of foreign travellers. They were reaching into the food buffet with fingers and directly grabbing out food. There were serving tongs readily available, they...

Front desk people nice. This hotel needs a renovation. Starting to get worn out like a Hollywood actress who has hit 40. Not in a pretty area. Clientele a little blue collar. Vaguely smells like cigarettes smoke.

Reggie R, General Manager at Holiday Inn Express Wilson Downtown, responded to this review

Dear Alzor S, We will be undergoing a makeover this year just like any other Hollywood actress at 40 does. Hopefully when you return we will be at your Kardashian standards. Thanks again for your VH1 review.

We had been on the road for a long time (Motorcycle) and were very tired. We walked in without a reservation and Tammy was very helpful. She was very good, polite, energetic, welcoming us with a great sense of humor. Thanks Tammy for your welcome.

I work for the state and so am sales tax exempt. I could not print of my form because the business center printer had no ink, but Tammi helped me adjust my folio to get the state tax taken off and was very nice as she did so she was great. The only 2 negatives were the heat in my...

Staying here due to weather concerns for my job, but if I had to stay in Wilson, this is where I'd stay. Probably the best hotel here. Room is clean. It's rather quiet. Bed is much more comfortable than I expected. Because of my work schedule, I have been sleeping during the day. Housekeeping did not bother me at all....

My family and I drove from Philadelphia to Wilson North Carolina for a funeral. I made reservations for two rooms for one night.

Front desk personnel are very rude and confronting in the evening. I had a small issue and the front desk person followed me to the elevator and was yelling at me!! No thanks!!! I travel way too much to be treated like that...avoid this place at all costs.

We needed a clean, safe stopover on our way to Southern Georgia and found a gem in this Holiday Inn Express. It is about 5 miles off of I95 and is in a quiet light cation. We enjoyed a free full breakfast and were on our way in the morning. Great value.
