We stayed here this past Weekend. One of the best HIEs I've encountered. Large & comfortable room, nice pool & hot tub, great staff & breakfast. Special thanks to Diana who serves a TERRIFIC breakfast with a friendly smile! If you're staying in the Sparta area, I highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here while visiting friends in a nearby town. The front desk staff were all wonderful, very friendly! The hotel was not just clean, but smelled clean as well from the time I walked till I walked out. The rooms were very clean as well. The breakfast was included and wasn't bad at all. I definitely recommend this Holiday Inn...

This is your average Holiday Inn Express. Nothing fancy, but a comfortable stay for a good price. Good service, clean rooms and hot coffee with breakfast to get you going in the morning. Easy to book and check out was simple. The only issue was late at night there were guests that made quite a racket and we could find...

The entire facility was spotless and well kept. The morning breakfast area was very clean. Diana and Pauline kept the breakfast items well stocked and continually inquired about any needs that we may have. Diana and Pauline started our day on a very positive note. Very nice day by these ladies.

This is a "normal" Holiday Inn Express. Front desk staff were accommodating and friendly. Room clean. Fresh linens. A variety of pillows were in the room to meet the needs of each family member. A couple of things in the room need "maintenance" but they were quick to clean and repair. We were on the 2nd floor - above the...
