Good6.0
We had to change rooms, because it was so noisy in our first room. However, the hotel was very accommodating. Maid service was too late in the day (approx. 5pm).

Disappointing Stay
The location was pretty good however the hotel room wasn't very nice. Also, the 10pm-7am quiet time I saw posted on the sign in the lobby was never enforced. My whole stay there I couldn't sleep due to loud people in the halls and rooms.

This is the worst holiday inn express I’ve ever stayed in. The door to the bathroom didn’t even shut.

Check was quick and the customer service rep was a perfect Gem. Room was roomy and clean and the bed was comfortable. The only downside was the traffic noise in the morning, but we were up already so it wasn't a big deal. I would stay again. Plus was the free breakfast in the morning.
