I have stayed at this place before and I was always happy. Unfortunately the cabinet with the TV on it was broken and when I reported it, they could not do anything and said they'd fix it the day after. They never did and didn't offer anything instead. The room was also missing soap and when I asked for it, they told me to go and get it from front desk.

Liked the location, it’s a 5 - 10 minute walk to the casinos. Lots of restaurants nearby. Pioneer Trial dead ends right at the entrance which means you get a light to pull out onto the main road (very nice when during the winter). Only thing I would have liked the room to have is a safe.

Power outage happened the night I got there, not the hotel’s fault, but they are not prepared for this events, dont even have a backup generator so I had to spend the night with no power, super cold because it was snowing (18 grades F) and the next morning of course there was no breakfast and nobody to help remove the snow from the parking area at least so we could be able to leave this “hotel”. So on top of everything I had to shovel a lot to be able to leave.

Everything in the property was great . But for no reason they charge my credit card twice “ for incidental “ and only one charge was reimbursed. Although I paid in advance thru EXPEDIA App .

Hi, I booked and paid for the rooms ($333.06) via Expedia on Friday 11/18/22 before we arrived at the hotel the next day Saturday 11/19/22, we stayed there for two nights, at the front deck I specifically told the clerk Fabian that I had paid the rooms already, he looked at the computer screen and agreed, but after we checked out and came home, Fabian sent a receipt via email and charged us $406.70! Then I called the hotel manager Ann to inquire why I got double charged, She looked at the hotel computer system and said that I booked the room directly with Fabian! that was not right, I booked that room only via Expedia directly, Never talked to Fabian before, it looks like Fabian deleted the Expedia reservation and changed to a directly reservation with him so he could charge me more money. This is wrong. It has happened before when I booked hotels via Expedia, and then got double charged by the hotel, Hilton namely. When I talked to Fabian when we were checking in the hotel on Saturday 11/19/22, I sensed he was not honest already, sure enough he is a crook, I demand an answer for this so other Expedia members won't be wronged in the future, if this is not resolved, I will take legal action against both Expedia and Holiday Inn Express to protect my rights as a consumer. Regard, Ken

Staff was very friendly. Great location and the free breakfast was decent. Room could have been cleaner, had a musky smell and the TV channels were extremely limited.
