We always stay at Holiday Inns when traveling and usually have a good experience until now. We had a terrible stay. The guests in the room above us sounded like they were moving furniture all night. In addition, our bed could not have been more uncomfortable. We might have fared better sleeping on the floor.

Wonderful Holiday Inn Express! Room was clean & smelled good. The receptionist was very friendly, busy, & happy to be doing her job. The pool was quiet, chlorine smell was strong. I wish there was a hot tub is the only improvement I can find. The cookies & lemonade in the lobby were very good.

I really have no complaints! My room was clean and spacious. I liked the free breakfast in the morning and the delicious cookies in the evening. The staff was friendly. The location was very convenient for my purposes. They have a pool and fitness room. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Traveling the Natchez Trace Parkway, I stayed here for one night. It was a pleasant experience and restful sleep. Excellent breakfast, can't ask for anything more. They seem to be understaffed on the front desk on the weekends, not sure why that is, but you would think they could add another person for peak times of the day. I would... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The bed was comfortable and the room and bath were clean. The heating/cooling unit was reasonably quiet. The breakfast buffet was typical-cereals, eggs, sausage or bacon, biscuits, gravy, etc. We would stay here again.
