Staff very friendly and helpful. Maid service was lacking but overly room was clean. Had nice breakfast which we enjoyed every morning. Manager was great, explained our concern with maid service which she addressed that same morning.

I can't say that wifi reception is bad in entire hotel but don't stay in room 214. To send emails I had to turn my phone into a hotspot as wifi signal was too weak to use to connect to for email or Internet use in room. Hotel information in book in room had a 800 number for support that...

I came to check in at this location for an overnight stay because of visiting family. Upon arriving, the front desk gentlemen was sitting in the back.

I was there at what must have been a trying time for them - during a widespread power outage. That said, it was a better than average interchange hotel. I try to avoid these as one is always a slave to your machine to get anywhere to eat or imbibe. And, during the power outage everything nearby was shut down...

One of the best Holiday Inn express I have stayed at. Very new and nice. A bit hard to find but a very good night sleep with a decent price. I like the new style door locks. It is a little bet far from downtown Festus but right off I-55. Great place to say for sure.

As we entered our top floor room, we found the thermostat was set at 60 degrees. As we unloaded our cooler into the refrigerator, we found a solid chunk of ice the height of the interior on the back wall. We then found someone else's leftovers on the top shelf of the refrigerator and a dirty, sticky bottom shelf. Both...

This is a nice place to stay and is very convenient to the highway and restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Making the reservation and the check-in process was very easy and pleasant. I was a little disappointed that we did not receive an IHG welcome gift like we have at some other Holiday Inn's.
