This was a great place to stay on our Dinosaur Diamond road trip. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and quiet, and had everything we needed. We liked that the shampoo/soap/conditioner was in bulk dispensers (I wish they did this for lotion as well). The breakfast had good options for us (we're vegan - they had fresh oatmeal, fruit, toast, and cereals). Likely still due to Covid, all the bread was individually wrapped in plastic, which seemed wasteful, and the utensils were all package in plastic so if you needed one fork you got a package of stuff you didn't need.
We'd love if IHG could switch to reusable or compostable utensils. This location was close to several dining options. We will definitely stay at Holiday Inn Express in the future.
