We stayed here for a night while traveling. We had an above average experience with this Holiday Inn Express. It started with the night clerk going above and beyond making us feel welcome and giving us a military discount we didn't know applied. Our room was very clean and comfortable. One major drawback: the shower in the morning was cold,...

Very clean, QUIET and friendly staff. Had bad experience with a [female] front desk employee, but supervisor took care of it [and apologized] next day. Rooms are not huge but comfy enough.

This should be the standard for all HI Expresses. We have stayed several times, always a rather late arrival, but check in is quick. The whole place is clean and everyone is friendly. Breakfast is well stocked and we never feel rushed. The rooms are always in top notch condition, including the linens. Convenientally located.
