My husband and I stayed in this new Holiday Inn Express on May 9 & 10th 2021. I was in the shower and reached out for the safety bar and IT WAS NOT CONNECTED at the top! I grabbed the glass door for support and caught my balance. I immediately called down to the desk and reported the issue as soon as I was out of the shower. As we were checking out the next morning, I also told the day shift desk clerk about the safety problem. I’ve tried to contact Holiday Inn Express by email and phone to complain and cannot get through. The phone system has kept me on hold up to 37 minutes before I finally gave up. The Contact Us email wants me to sign up for their awards program and jump through hoops to send a message. I am absolutely disgusted with the lack of customer service from this company. I have VIDEO of the handle loose in my hand. I showed it to the day-desk clerk. I wanted to send the video to customer service but cannot get to them. Very disgusted and disappointed.

This is a brand new hotel and they are still working out some things....like Staff etiquette. When I checked in, the individual had no clue what he was doing and when I handed him my form that needed to be added to my bill, he said he had never seen anything like that before and I asked him to just save it for Management. I was not recognized as a "Gold Member", so the whole check in thing was not good. On check out, the young lady tried to get the "form" correct and did make the necessary adjustments, but again, was not told anything about adding my points, to which I still don't know if they have been added to my IHG Rewards account, but will check soon. She was a little overwhelmed by telephone duties and dealing with check outs, apparently no one else was there to assist and the desk was in some sort of disarray and not organized. I guess they are hiring college kids to man the front desk, not your best option, also, see my photo, a sign was displayed stating I had to wear my mask as it is "required by law"....Well it isn't required by law only recommended, so don't let that scare you, there is no law and IHG Corporate has been notified to rebrand it's signage. I travel the state and thought I would try this place out, not sure I'll be back, we'll see.

As a (former) regular customer of IHG for the 25 years, the hotel and room was way overpriced. This is the first review I’ve ever written - and I’m writing it because the experience was so poor. After checking in, the rate on their website was significantly lower than what we were charged. Politely asking for a price match was met with a snarky, condescending response. Her answer was obviously no with an “I don’t care” attitude. It’s the most frustrating travel experience I’ve had in a long time.

Thank me later. My daughter was exposed to coronavirus and plays for a college basketball team and the team was not allowed to travel. We called and asked to reschedule, and were denied, and my card was charged the second we hung up. Yes it was during the non cancellation period, but a little courtesy and help would have been respected. Instead, we got a very rude and i mean rude manager that would not work with us even though we have stayed previously. Pathetic! I will never stay there again and neither will the team, after I told them what happened. I mean, we rescheduled and were coming back, but not now. They charged me $177.00 They're management is beyond rude. It wasnt nice to begin with

Don’t book this hotel in the days of Covid-19. We had to cancel after 6pm the night before due to our daughter being exposed to the virus. We were charged 172.04 anyway. They were rude and unhelpful! We didn’t come anyway because we didn’t want to expose anyone! Very frustrating! They advertise free cancellations until 1-7-2021. In a pandemic this unbelievable!
