The Good

  • Accommodations
  • Positive feedback
The Holiday Inn Express motto is : "Settle in, plug in your laptop and enjoy your stay". With high speed internet access, a hot breakfast and a comfortable room,  Holiday Inn Express is designed with frequent travelers in mind with the intent of leaving guests feeling both relaxed and recharged. However, Holiday Inn Express claims to be more than a basic business hotel. In an effort to prove this, they offer the following accommodations:
  • More free breakfast choices. The  FREE Express Start™ Breakfast Bar offers popular food items such as Chobani® Greek Yogurt**, Kellogg's®, and Quaker® plus the regular buffet-style "go-to" items.
  • Free high-speed internet access for work or play.
  • eHost™ Online Concierge to provide information about your hotel and the local area.
  • A multi-function showerhead and plenty of water pressure in all guest rooms. There is also a curved curtain rod for more space and included fluffy soft cotton towels and premium toiletries.
  • Choice of firm or soft pillows waiting on the bed, along with fresh, clean linens
  • Many locations provide in-room microwave ovens, same-day laundry and dry-cleaning services, fax and photocopying services and Holiday Inn Express'  Forget Something?℠ personal care program.
  • Children ages 19 and under stay free in a parent's room.
Positive feedback from guests typically consists of:
  • The outside is a playground for kids and the pool is big
  • There is also a small laundry room and the price is reasonable.
  • The restaurant is better than average for a hotel. ....and they have a dinner theatre
  •  The rooms are kept in good shape by housekeeping.
  • Front desk staff are very accommodating and the bar staff are superb.
  • Happy hour from 4-7 daily with one munchie.
  • Very family- friendly amenites such as kids outdoor play area, indoor and outdoor pool, basketball court, indoor kids' play room

The Bad

  • Thin walls
The Holiday Inn Express generally delivers on its promises of limited service and low-cost lodging without much complaint from guests. The only issues guests seem to have is that the hotels are badly built by the way they can hear other guests through the walls. Some people have found the hotel to be "basic and boring", thus only viable for a short stay. The breakfast options are welcomed at first, however, those on an extended stay have had issues with having the exact same breakfast options every day in certain hotels. The low price is the only factor making dissatisfied guests want to come back.

The Bottom Line

Designed with frequent travelers in mind, Holiday Inn Express offers the basic amenities of high speed internet access, a hot breakfast and a comfortable room. Its highlights are its low price and family-friendly amenities.

I've used Holiday's several times in different states and they've always left me an impression. Customer service was always good when we were there. Check-ins were quick and breakfast service was amazing (back before covid happened). You can't beat the price and the quality Holiday inn gives you.

Holiday Inn has always been a great place to stay. My wife and I always get a good nights sleep and are happy with the cleanliness of the hotel and rooms. We have always been impressed by the sound proof of the rooms and never disturbed by other guests.

Repeat customer to many HIE properties. Seems like the brand is doing a good job forcing some of the unrenovated properties to update. Would be nice if the older hotels got updated faster (or removed from the system).

Best experiences we’ve had were in the new build Holiday Inn Express hotels. The ones that are rebranded can be old and have poor service and staff but any that were built are super nice and great service. Usually in convenient locations while traveling too and great pricing for breakfast included (love the cinnamon rolls!)

Spent time in a Holiday Inn express on a recent trip to Oregon. Compared to other hotels we have stayed as. this hotel was lacking in several areas. The overall cleanliness of the room seemed to be somewhat lacking. The sinks in the bathroom and the desk tops did not appear to be clean. We took some cleaner from our car and reclined them. Instead of getting small individual bottles of lotion they had a slightly larger bottle of lotion which was partially used. We were concerned about this policy in the time of Covid 19 since we knew the outside of the bottle was contaminated by someone else touching it. When taking a shower I ran out of hot water in the evening and had to use luke warm water instead. The bedspreads appeared old and used. Would not highly recommend this to a friend.

Holiday Inn Express is almost as good as Holiday Inn, a little more affordable which is great for family road trips. Always has a good breakfast selection (except with Covid 19) and average customer service.

Used this hotel for a beach trip in California. Rooms were clean, front desk staff was friendly, and beds were comfortable. We loved being able to connect rooms with family members that were also staying in the same hotel. For the deal we got on the rooms, it was well worth the value.

We needed an affordable hotel close to the beach during a recent vacation in Florida. We were able to book a Holiday Inn Express that was within minutes of Madeira Beach. With a family, we're always glad when there's a pull out bed and comfortable rooms that accommodate our kids. This was a great stay for us, conveniently located close to a Walmart, minutes from the beach, and easy to find. It was a good stay.

Love the convenience we get at Holiday Inn Express hotels. Great environment for a great price. Recently we did a staycation at a Holiday Inn Express to change up our scenery since we haven't been able to travel due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We had a lovely time with family even though we were only a short drive away from home!

Holiday inn express is one of the most family oriented hotels I've ever visited. I think they put a lot of emphasis on being a family friendly zone. When I visited this hotel I felt like their pool area went over and above to ensure the children were enjoying the pool area.

I love staying at Holiday Inn Express! The past few times I have stayed I have enjoyed it very much. The employees are very kind, and the hotel is always neat and clean. The breakfast is one of the better ones, just make sure you go to one that hasn't changed their cinnamon roll recipe, because to me the rolls make it!

We usually stay at holiday inn because of building points with staying there. We can usually find one close to wherever we are working or visiting. The kids enjoy swimming and breakfast. We enjoy the nice comfortable beds - large rooms for us and kids. Wi fi is always great too. Can work and do things while staying there. The workers are friendly and always help out when we ask for extra things we forgot. The cleaning is always timely and fresh.

We have stayed at the holiday inn express in Salt Lake City several times and have had many birthday parties for my kids there. The one is salt lake has a water slide and a theater room. The kids loved the water slide. It was a huge hit for the birthday parties. The rooms were really nice and clean and the price was very affordable. It was so worth the stay.

Holiday Inn Express is one of the hotels I stay at when I travel. I have found that they are one of the usually in good shape and clean. Their beds have been some of the most comfortable. Their free breakfast has been one of the better also, but I'm sad to say they have changed the cinnamon rolls.

We usually always stay in a Holiday Inn express when we are traveling through Las Vegas or are there for sports tournaments. The one we like is in Henderson on Boulder Highway. It is comfortable and in a safe area. The other patron are other families or business people so I feel comfortable. The FREE breakfast is nice.

Loved all my stays at Holiday Inn express. The customer service was always great, clean rooms and morning breakfast was amazing. one word of advise if any would be to switch up the Breakfast, some people can only hand biscuits and gravy for so long.

These hotels are always clean. They aren't anything too special but they are reasonably priced and comfortable so I do not have any complaints. Most the time when I travel I only come to my room to sleep. I don't ever spend much time at the hotel so it's perfect for my husband and I! I have no doubt I will stay at a Holiday Inn Express again.
