I came in with a large group who was relocating from another hotel. Despite the overwhelming situation, front desk employee Miles, was nothing short of amazing. Very kind and respectful young man. I found that throughout the week all hotel employees went above and beyond to ensure customer service satisfaction.

Easy access off I-75 once you figure out they share a driveway with another hotel. The facilities appear quite new; even with its location next to the expressway we didn't seem to notice as we all slept well. Rooms are large and very modern. Nice touch hiding the mini fridge behind a cupboard door. Only complaint would be how cold...

This Holiday Inn is conveniently located in view of the exit with several places to eat close by. The hotel was exceptionally clean and quiet with nice bedding. It is either a new building or newly renovated as everything is new. The breakfast offered a variety of hot and cold items in one of the cleanest hotel food areas I...

So sweet the lady at the desk. Very accommodating. Supplies for things that we ran out of (no charge). I watched her handle a load of people and he reminded me of a butterfly as she listed from side to side of the reception desk. The morning crew was just as sweet. The breakfast lady was ALWAYS around checking on...

Front desk staff were great and very friendly. Cookies were available when we checked in so of course we had to have one and it was the perfect chocolate chip cookie! The room was clean and had the requisite supplies, actually over and above because they supplied make-up remover wipes in addition to the usual soap, shampoo, lotion. Hubby said...

I had to stay overnight with the College's Homecoming festivities and the staff were friendly and welcoming! I loved the rooms and the price was okay for a weekend stay. Did have an issue with fan blower having issues; however, that didn't bother me as I grow accustomed to noises in the background. Great rooms, beautiful hotel, clean and welcoming!...

While on a road trip vacation we came across the Holiday Inn Express. The front desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating.

Great front desk staff, especially Mikola, very helpful and knowledgeable. Perfect spot not too far from Lexington; and the breakfast here has plenty of good options. Make sure to ask for rooms away from the interstate.
