"Hotel Review"
The staff was nice. Just the insulation is really bad where you can easily hear noises from floors above you and rooms beside you. I had to transfer to various rooms to get to that sort of decent quietness. But later part of that stay, it was just bad so I couldn't really do much about it.

"Wanna B "nice hotel" in the Ghetto!"
This Hotel looks nice from the outside and lobby. So I thought that for $150 a night "non Smoking''It was worth it. Well I was wrong, I walked into my room and it smelled like a stale and musty ash tray. The phone in the room was yellow and old looking. the caulking in the tub/shower was peeling off and moldy. The entire time I was there I worried about my truck getting broke into. Definitely try to stay clear of this ghetto hotel……………….

"Not the best of HIE hotels"
The staff was great and the breakfast satisfactory. However, the water was off for the first six hours of our stay making it necessary to go to a local Taco fast food place to use the toilet. The Washing machine and dryer were out of service the entire three days of our stay. No offer was made to apply credit for the inconveniences. We are regular Holiday Inn Express patrons and this one was a major disappointment.

"A nice affordable hotel with good service"
Only spent one short night here but the staff was very responsive and the room was great. The room was very spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. The location was not the best but I guess that is why you get a great room for the low price. Despite the busy location I was surprised how quite the room was. The free breakfast had a pretty good variety. My only complaint was there was no hot water for the tea or oatmeal, but as soon as we asked a staff member she got some for us right away.

"Helpful staff."
I accidentally booked an extra night without the cancellation option as I miscalculated with my flights and time change. I know it was a long shot, but I asked at the desk if I could change my dates and get a refund. The girl behind the desk (and I'm gutted i can't remember her name) went out of her way to call Expedia, change the booking, and sort me out a refund. She did this all while answering the main phone and helping other guests all without being flustered and taking it all in her stride. Talk about multi-tasking... I can barely walk and chew gum!

"Clean Hotel next to I-80"
This hotel is similar to other Holiday Inn Express hotels we've stayed in. It's clean, well run and the staff is helpful. The free breakfast in the morning was OK but the one young attendant couldn't keep up with customers by himself. The beds are a little too hard in my opinion. The TV is high def with a lot of channels. Wifi is free. The rooms overlook I-80 on one side and the back of a shopping center on the other side, so if you want scenery, this isn't the place. However, it was close to where we needed to be and convenient to many things so we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

The room was clean and suited our needs. Nice size refrigerator in our room which help the groceries we had brought with us. The woman at the desk was very friendly and helpful, giving us extra pillows and helping us find some place for dinner. The only complaint was that the beds are the typical, hard matress beds we find in most hotels.

"All that it should be"
There is an expectation of good service and clean rooms associated with Holiday Inn Express hotels and this one met and perhaps exceeded my expectations. The staff were friendly, the rooms (my brother was staying there too) were well appointed and very clean and the complimentary breakfast was very good as well (and the staff were present during the breakfast hours and kept everything stocked). I would recommend this hotel to family and friends. It is also very convenient to I-80, so easy to get on the road to your destination.

"Not the greatest experience"
When i arrived at the hotel someone else had been booked in my room. it was extremely late and i had been traveling the entire day. I had to wait at least 30 minutes before my family and i were able to get into a room. The guest before me received some item for the inconvenience. I on the other hand received nothing. . . I was not pleased with my stay here and do not plan on returning.

"Better than expected"
We were told to cancel our reservations at this location due to high crime in the area. We had booked it as a non-refundable so had no alternative. We were pleasantly pleased with our experience. The location was not threatening at all. Would definitely return. As others commented, there were a few experiences with the front desk that weren't as friendly as others. Most specifically the late night/early morning staff were a bit rude and less helpful than the day staff.

"Not good service"
I booked a suite and when I got there, none were available. I even went so far as to called the hotel directly after I booked the room to confirm that I had requested and paid for a suite. They told me that I wanted a King bed and I got one. They were not willing to do anything for me, other than to say sorry, and not even in a sincere manner.
