"Affordable Clean Room in Central PA"
I stayed here for a night with my family. We share a room with 2 queen beds. This room was very comfortable, clean and the shower was excellent. I think this is really all anyone is expecting when they stay at a interstate exit economy hotel. The only dawback was the breakfast. The "breakfast buffet," the eggs and cheese were egg and cheese substitute. […] The sausage was decent and well cooked but the biscuits looked stale and the gravy had an odd color. I would recommend choosing the cinnamon swirl buns only. The staff was nice and personable and answered all our questions. There aren't many dining options so make sure you eat before you get to the hotel if you expect to arrive after 9 pm. The Bonanza Steakhouse nearby closes at that time and the nearest option is an Applebees which is 5 miles away in lewisburg. All around this is a good place to stay if you are heading to a Penn State football game the following morning, which is what we did because it is only an hour and 10 mins outside State College.

"would stay again"
Good stay for the cost. Comfortable and convenient. Freindly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in New Columbia, PA"
Although this hotel looks to have been recently updated, it literally took 5 minutes to get hot water. When we flushed the toilet or washed our hands there was a terrible, loud sound in the wall. You could not use the TV remote unless you were sitting up in bed and raising your hand/remote over your head to so that it could "connect" with the sensor […] on the TV. The front desk employees were very nice and helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express New Columbia"
This was our first time here and we were pleased with our room. Only complaint was there were no towels or wash cloths left in the room the second night we were there we had to go ask for some. There could be a grab bar in the shower also, but otherwise the hotel was clean and comfortable. Nice heated pool and hot tub. We drove to Shade Mountain Winery […] in Middleburg on Saturday which was about a half hour away from the hotel. Nice quiet area and a Bonanza restaurant is right up the street from this hotel. Otherwise it is a quite remote area unless you're there for a specific reason. Will stay agsain next year I am sure! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"stayed one night"
Stayed one night and did not get to use available services (pool, exercize room). For overnight stay was very good. Did not get to check out neighborhood and surrounding area due to length of stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"newly renovated and very close to Bucknell"
This hotel is within a 5 minute drive, right up the road from Bucknell on Rt. 15. Everything in the hotel has been newly renovated (except perhaps the mattresses). The beds were only so comfortable, but everything else was great. The breakfast buffet was convenient, offering eggs, sausages, cereal, coffee, fruit, bagels and juice. Parking was also convenient. […] We went for Bucknell Parent's weekend and wish we could have this hotel for graduation, but they are already sold out for 2012. Word to the wise, Bucknell parents...book your hotel for graduation at least a year in advance. This hotel is very convenient and was a pleasant experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great chain"
This one is like all the others we have stayed in this year. Clean, comfortable, well-appointed, excellent staff. Holiday Inn Express hotels seem to be sprouting everywhere and it's very nice to know that by choosing this chain you know exactly what to expect and you get good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express in New Columbia, PA"
Our stay was a last minute reservation due to a death in the family and they were more than accomidating to us as when we where leaving to go we had to add another person to the room. A rollaway bed was waiting (that was actually comfortable) and extra towels. The staff was very friendly too. Would stay there again when we are visiting family down that […] way.

"Angenehme Unterkunft bei verkehrsguenstiger Lage"
Das Hotel liegt in unmittelbarer Naehe an der Interstate 80 und ist doch sehr ruhig. Der Service war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und wohl aufgrund einer gerade abgeschlossenen Renovation mit neuen Betten und Moebeln ausgestattet. Das Fruehstueck war sehr gut und frisch. DIe Tische wurden regelmaessig von Servicekraeften […] gereinigt und das Bueffet wurde regelmaessig aufgefuellt. Das einzige Manko hier war der Pool, der etwas aelter und nicht ganz auf dem neuesten Stand war. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It looks like a new Holiday Inn Express... very clean and a nice new room layout. It's a little off the beaten path and it's a rough road to get there... but well worth it. The staff was warm, helpful and friendly.

My wife and I have stayed here many times over the past 6 or more years on our way beyond & back. The hotel has been updated, expanded, and renovated several times over our various short stays. It is very attractive & up to date; it has always been just great; super clean and spacious rooms, super bedding, choice of pillow firmness, great bathroom with various amenities. Free internet & wireless. Very acceptable free breakfast: eggs, meats, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts, as well as breakfast drinks. Even coffee/tea 24/7.

The hotel was very clean and nice inside. Nice atmosphere. Rooms were clean, no outside noise or cleaning noise could be heard (and our room was right beside housekeeping). The woman who checked us in, Michelle, was awesome. She was very friendly and helpful (and we required her help numerous times). She even signed me up for the rewards program which I was unaware about. The woman in the morning, Renee, was very very rude. I asked about getting some items on the breakfast bar refilled, and she promptly bit my head off (she yelled loud enough that the entire room of breakfast eaters heard), she then yelled at an employee, and told him to tell Mary (the woman who was supposed to keep breakfast stocked) to come refill the breakfast. Breakfast (with the exception of low amount of food when we went down at 8am), was good. The cinnamon rolls, seemed a little stale (I was looking forward to a cinnamon roll, I'm not big on breakfast in general), and I was hoping for some bacon (this was one item I got my head bit off for). They do serve turkey sausage, so why not some turkey bacon as well?! The pool was a bit cold, it could've been a little warmer as it was an indoor pool. Check in and check out went smoothly. I would stay at this hotel again (but would hope to not deal with Renee). The Regional Director of Sales, Ty Gemberling, was very helpful.
"Great for a Quick Night!"
08/07/14 LER627 Washington DC, District of Columbia
We stopped here on our way to Rochester for Thanksgiving, when the snow just got too heavy. Service was good, as they were able to make us a last-minute reservation and our room was warm and awaiting us upon our arrival. Got there very late at night and so we pretty much just went to sleep, but the room was adequate, the bathroom clean, and the beds comfortable. Slept well and when we were ready to go in the morning, we had a filling breakfast at the included continental breakfast area. Check-in and out were both easy, and we were on our way in no time!
"No hot water"
Upon realizing we had no hot water in our room, I call the front desk. She told me she would check the hot water heater and to try again in 10 minutes. I tried 10 minutes later, still no hot water. Call the front desk and the response was basically, you're the only 1 with his problem, sorry. Well, I need to bathe my children so what can we do? Her solution was to move rooms. With a 5 year old, 3 year old, and two suitcases full of things unpacked, that was out of the question. Could we take a shower in a different room? No. Why not? They would have to clean 2 rooms if they moved us anyway, right? After she called the general manager, she allowed us to shower in a room a floor above. Not accommodating whatsoever, not helpful, not a good experience.
"Here for a wrestling tournament"
07/17/14 Fran C Ridley Park, Pennsylvania
Property is just average. We stayed here 2 nights for a wrestling tournament. I feel as our room was extremely dusty, not dirty just dusty. I noticed that there was dust strings hanging from the curtains, and ceilings also the furniture was very dusty. My 10 year old pointed it out to me right away. There was a white powder like baby powder on the desk chair and the door of the dresser. Before getting settled in I had to take a damp tissue and wipe everything down. Other than that the bathroom was clean and beds where not bad. Pool was nice kids used it 3 x while there and 2 out of the 3x they had no dry towels. I would stay here again but would look into booking somewhere else first. Just a bit dissapointed since I stay at Holiday Inn express before and they seemed much nicer.

Standard Holiday Inn Express. Clean, decently sized rooms with microwave and fridge. Comfortable bed. Standard breakfast. Almost nothing in walking distance, but plenty a short drive away. Close to the highway but I had a room on the back side and wasn't bothered by noise at all.
"Nice Functional Hotel."
06/17/14 Erik K Emmitsburg, Maryland
We stayed here while at a swim meet at Bucknell University. Some families wanted to camp, we did not, so a hotel near the camp ground was chosen. A somewhat modern hotel in a rural setting. A well kept, nice and clean travel hotel. About 15 min from Bucknell, a mall, a movie theatre, and chain restaurants. My only knocks were that the pool is small (even after swimming all day they still want to go to the pool), every day we had to ask for a forth towel (4 people in our room) and the pillows were terrible (usual hotel stuff). All in all a great value in a central location. Would definitely stay here again.
"Great value for the money"
Great value for the money. Just know that it is a short drive (5-10 minutes) to Lewisburg. The front desk people were very nice. The complimentary breakfast was average, but the hotel was clean & felt newer. I would stay there again if traveling in Pennsylvania.
"Great Overnight Stay"
05/28/14 NJ-Tennessean Newton, NJ
We stayed here for one night before heading to Knoebels Amusement Park. The location is conveniently off the interstate. A number of restaurants and stores are available a few miles down the road in Lewisburg. Overall I was very pleased with everything about the stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the rate was reasonable. They have an indoor pool which my daughter enjoyed using. Internet service is available in the lobby. The breakfast was more than adequate and had a decent variety of food options including many nutritious options which seem to be lacking in many hotels. It met all my expectations so I would definitely stay here again.
