Very Good 8.0 From 429 reviews

Fair 4.0
Hotel was really run down and typically Holiday Inn Expresses are pretty safe. Checkin took forever, just stayed there 1 night after our beach house ended on a Saturday. I won’t be back there!
Heather, us1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Not the best
The hotel property is VERY old but you can tell they are trying their best to keep it in shape. Carpets need replacing and hotel is pretty noisy. My biggest complaint is the local area...kind of sketchy...not the hotel's fault but I definitely wouldn't stay here again. Second morning I woke up to man and woman screaming and cursing outside. I didn't feel really safe.

Not a happy camper
I would have given this hotel a higher rating if not for the rude check-in staff. I found them rude and not helpful at all.

Poor 2.0
Unclean Bed
I arrived after 11 PM. Check in was fast, but when I got in to the room and started to get ready to go to bed extremely tired from a long trip, I lifted the cover to find some stuck bodily fluid in there. I called the front desk using the room phone, and no answer. I was rerouted to their national call center “as no was available in the lobby”. After two calls, and because I was so exhausted, I just slept over the covers. The place is noisy and old.
