    Great visit!!

    Hotel was clean, employees were friendly and helpful and the complimentary breakfast service was awesome. Everything was delicious, the kitchen and dining area was pristine and Becky was a superstar making sure the food stayed hot and our tables were clean. Definitely recommend staying here.

    Great place to stay!

    We really enjoyed the 4 days we spent at the Holiday Inn Express in Clayton! The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful (thanks Tim on front desk especially - coordinated two reservations so we didn't have to switch rooms)! Rooms are modern, clean, well decorated and equipped. Bathroom is large with plenty of room for two people. Now the breakfast area is pretty cool. Someone put a lot of thought into designing it to be easy to use, keep food fresh and hot - best breakfast area I've ever seen. The best part is a wonderful, sweet lady who keeps everything stocked, fresh, and hot. She is friendly with the guests and makes sure everyone gets what they need. We had a great stay and highly recommend this hotel.

    Wonderful stay

    [This is not a paid review.] Our family has nothing but good things to say about this hotel. Words to describe our visit: clean, courteous, well-stocked, and accommodating. The staff and their service exceeded our expectations. They were all exceptionally friendly, and one staff member went out of her way to make another omelet & sausage- even though the breakfast area was closing (we didn’t ask, she offered!). The room was tidy, the bathroom was very clean, and all the linens were fresh. We very much enjoyed our stay at Holiday Inn Express and feel confident that you will, too!

    Good Location, Comfortable Bed

    We stayed here one night while visiting family in the area. We arrived a little after 4 and when we checked in we had to wait because our room still needed towels. Two queen beds but one is so close to the wall that it would be tough for a person on that side to get out. The one we slept in was comfortable. Breakfast area is large and well stocked with a lot of options. Pancake machine and very yummy cinnamon rolls. There were 3 hot trays with scrambled eggs; egg white omelette; turkey sausage; pork sausage; sausage gravy; and biscuits. A meat other than sausage would have been nice. The AC was noisy/rattled while on and it was a little noisy in the room (highway and hallway noise). It is in a convenient location at 40 & 42.
