We checked in on 3-17-2015 and what a nice place. The person working the desk was very friendly and helpful. The Room #229 was Clean, quiet, and comfortable! The breakfast bar was outstanding! All in all, we traveled 3453 miles and ALL the holiday Inn Express hotels met our expectations but this one exceeded! Great Place! We recommend!

We have stayed here in the past and it is okay. Over the years it is looking worn and in need of an update. The rooms are clean, but looking shabby. The beds are old and not comfortable. A one night stay is do-able..

If you think about stopping keep going! Worst night sleep that I can every remember. Nut job upstairs was pacing back and forth until 3:30 AM, then started up again at 6 AM. Complained to the front desk and they said it was "hallway noise." Free breakfast wasn't worth the calories digested. Room clean, staff friendly, I would never come...

Clean, comfortable bed. Working TV. Nice warm shower. BF is available in the morning. We left early so missed it. Fresh coffee made for the road. Friendly, competent staff. They have a small pool and hot tub but we did not make use of them. Small work out room too.

Metropolis came up as the stop for a trip that had us traveling on Christmas Day, and this HIE was the right choice. Just off the main highway, and as we later saw, the cream of the crop as far as a local place to stay! Staff was friendly, room was clean and very comfortable, breakfast was surprisingly good.

Everyone on staff was professional, but Phoebe at the front desk went above and beyond to help this weary traveler, making him feel welcome comfortable & right at home. Room was wonderful ~ 5 fat, fluffy pillows was just the beginning of a wonderful night sleep. Spacious & spotless with flat screen TV, fridge/micro, free wifi. Hubby only had coffee...

I studied all the tripadvisor reviews to pick a motel for our trip to Metropolis. You have to turn at the light and get on the frontage road to get to this Holiday Inn Express. During the day it was easy to find but it was very dark at night and would be hard to find. We arrived early. Phoebe...

I stopped here on the way home from an event farther south. The staff seamlessly handled my change of reservation from a Sunday to a Saturday night when I called about 2 hours before my arrival.
