It is the typical USA hotel to stay one nigh, or two maximum. Good installations, near to a hooters and a Arby's. Nothing amazing or above than others, but is a nice place if you're in a trip around the region knowing the place. Breakfast: is the same than others.

We just stayed overnight on our way to Destin, but were very pleased with our stay. Nice lobby, quick check-in, and clean, spacious room. The breakfast was simple, but had some good choices and was just what we needed before getting back on the road. The indoor pool was minimal, and slippery, but adequate for some relaxing. No hot tub....

My daughter and I came here for a concert and the Holiday Inn Express could not have been in a better spot. The Ozark amphitheater was walking distance from the hotel, and Chic-fil-a was also walking distance. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is not the best I have had in a hotel breakfast but it did its job. The...

Dear Danielak00, Thank you for letting everyone know that we are a "great spot" to stay if going to a concert at the amphitheater.
