The hotel staff is very friendly and eager to help. The hotel is located less than 10 miles from a Walmart and other stores and gas stations. The facility does need some improvements: The bathroom fixtures were very rusty and the commode with stink when flushed. Wifi was good at times and then bad at times. The buffet was very... More

We were warmly greeted even though we were using reward nights. The facility is well maintained and clean. The room was comfortable and clean with well regulated temperature. The coffee maker was a single serve Keurig. Since we had a supply of K-Cup pods to use where we were going, we were able to enjoy our favorite brews rather than... More

Stayed one night for business and it was a typical Holiday Inn Express. The thing that set it apart was the friendly service of the employees. We had a large group there and they went out of their way to accommodate us. Only drawback is that it was just basic. No frills but that's what you get w/a HIE.

The Holiday Inn Express delivers what you'd expect--a clean, basic place to sleep. My room was fine and the TV and wifi worked well. That let me catch up on work, the news, and sleep. I don't need much more for a business trip. The hotel also offers breakfast each morning and has an indoor pool (which was not working... More

This hotel was exactly what I expected from a Holiday Inn Express - new, clean interior, friendly staff, quick check in/out. It's always nice to be treated well after a long drive from Little Rock! This hotel isn't near restaurants and isn't in the best part of town but I would stay here again if traveling to El Dorado.
