I had occasion to interact with the hotel and their staff when a friend of mine with memory issues became disoriented and drove more than a hundred miles from home. She was scared and sought help from law enforcement (also absolutely amazing) who helped her contact her friends and then check into the Holiday Inn Express until we cold come get her the following morning. The staff were professional, compassionate, very kind, and a little protective. The manager made sure we identified ourselves when we arrived to get her. The kindness of the hotel staff kept her safe and we are so grateful. A stellar display of hospitality!
Could Have Been Cleaned Better

The property was good, we had an issue as the bathroom was not really cleaned prior to our stay. previous guest left a lot of facial hair in and around the bathroom sink area that was not cleaned. the black out shade on the room is AMAZING as you can make it pitch dark anytime of day. breakfast was better than expected and parking was abundant.

I had to come down for a funeral and I was creating video content with my laptop. I ended up leaving it in the bathroom down in the lobby and Joe, the maintenance worker, found it and returned it to the front desk. Nice and honest peeps!
Smelly room, broken furniture, shower curtain too short.
Reviewed 22 april, 2021
This was a really nice looking hotel in and out but we had a bad experience. Room 322 was advertised as a double king room but it was a king and queen bed. Also it STANK! It smelled like urine or backed up sewage of some sort. The pull out couch bed was broken so that you would fall through if you sat on the foot of the bed. The shower curtain was about 9” short and so water got everywhere during the shower. Disappointed because the reviews were so good. Hopefully the management reads this and fixes it.
Large clean room with decent breakfast
Reviewed 18 april, 2021
We stayed in a first floor room. It was very spacious with extra high ceilings. Although it overlooked the parking lot, it was extremely quiet and had excellent sound proofing. The room was spotless, as was the bathroom. Granite counters and granite shower surround. Nice shampoo, conditioner, and shower wash were included. Sheets, towels, and carpet were clean. No bad odors. Breakfast was decent-had yoplait yogurts, a variety of juices, coffee, cheese omelets, and biscuits and gravy. Also had toast, packet oatmeal, muffins, waffles, cereal, milk, and fresh apples. There were no breakfast meats or cinnamon rolls but that was fine with me. Everything was very clean and the tables were sanitized between uses. They also required everyone to wear (provided) plastic gloves before serving themselves which was good. There was an attendant who was constantly cleaning everything which was reassuring, given the pandemic. I liked that they had a card on each table that clearly indicated that the table had been sanitzed...then after you finished using the table you could turn over the card so that no one would accidently sit there before it was re-sanitized.
