From start to finish nothing was an easy transition, they couldn't find my reservation, then room was in horrible condition, front desk clerk couldn't help or offer anything, and kept blaming company instead of taking responsibility and trying to help, worst experience, and I usually like staying with Holiday Inn express many other locations are up to par this one is not.

The place was filthy. No toilet paper no towels refrigerator tv and phone did not work and the room smelled and the carpets were badly stained. We asked for a refund and moved to another hotel. The bathroom floor and tub was dirty too and stained.

It is as if you take pictures of your best facility and post them as if all your locations look this way. The property was dirty, the sink in the bathroom drained super slow, the room stunk, and your own employees would prop open the back door to do whatever and people were just coming into the hall way asking for money or cigarettes. Very disappointing
