It was an okay hotel for one night. Clean enough. Recommended dinner next door which was okay. The only issue I had was security. I asked for my bosses room number to bring him dinner and he told me. He should have called his room and let him tell me.

I booked 2 rooms at this Holiday Inn Express online over 4 months in advance for my family of 4.

Was surprised at the high rate ($152.night) but stayed here under the assumption that it would be a newer facility with higher standards than the local alternatives. While I don't know about the relative standards between the competitors, it is not a newer facility, but a run-down one. The surprise came in the humidity of the room, which was excessive.... More

We stayed two nights. It was a very nice stay. However, I was looking forward to their indoor pool, but it was shut down during our stay. It kind of looked like it was a small pool and the hot tub was cemented over. Overall, as long as you're not going for the pool this place is great.

Our bed was comfortable. The only complaint I have is that the AC was so drafty, even in the bed across the room from it. Felt like a north wind blowing when it came on. Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit options even along with all the hot food. Desk service was great - friendly and efficient.

Very nice and clean hotel. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and area was very clean. Very quiet! I would highly recommend this hotel, very close to Amish Country and Mt. Vernon is a very nice town. Movie theater next door to hotel.

I stayed one night during the week. Overall the stay was decent. As mentioned in another review, though the room was clean, it was a little dark and felt older thus giving the impression of an unclean room.
