Got a smoking room that I did not book
When I checked in I was told that booked me a smoking room which is strange because I don’t smoke and did not request one The room did smell of smoke but was tolerable

You can't go wrong here.

Try Holiday Inn Express first
Stay was underwhelming at best. None of the perks. No food available without driving. Minimal amenities. And no housekeeping unless you stay over 7 days. They didn’t even allow points toward the ihg because I booked through if we wanted clean towels we had to take used ones to the desk to exchange them. I was needless to say not impressed. The staff was nice but that wasn’t enough to improve my rating.

Excellent Service and Ideal Location
We had such a nice experience at this hotel. We were there for 7 nights. Our room was clean, and we had no disturbances or issues with noise! We loved the kitchenette and all of the amenities that the hotel provides. The establishment as a whole is clean and well prepared for its guests. We will definitely be returning!
