Management needs to take a serious look at it's protocol and standards of business practices. Overall staff was not knowledgeable about the area, had no investment in the facility nor guest accommodations. The pool and hot tub were most likely not up to health code and in fact a real health threat with a greenish brown murky water and slimy ring around the pool. Same for the breakfast that was not kept at a safe temp. for food safety. Had we not pre-paid to obtain a good rate we would have left and RAN from the place but we did not have the ability to pay yet again for our hotel room. As it was, we stayed out of the pool and hot tub, ate breakfast out away from the hotel and moved quickly through the facility so as to avoid contracting disease. While in the parking lot we observed some LARGE vermin on the adjacent lot of the abandoned building a Muskrat, perhaps? We will not be staying in this Holiday Inn Express ever again. Too scary and not within proximity to be considered a hotel for the Sports Complex. Much too much inaccurate marketing of this location/facility.

Would NOT recommend this hotel to ANYONE! And this coming from someone who lives in a town named Colon.

We stayed at this hotel for the weekend because of the Nascar races. It was a distance from the speedway, but it was cheaper than other HI Expresses. The hotel was convenient to get to off of the interstate. We arrived late, close to midnight, and the front desk staff wasn't overly friendly, but she was prompt. On Saturday morning, we went down to breakfast, and there was a nice selection of food, the only problem was the eggs were dry and cold, as was the biscuit and gravy. In fact all the food was cold, this was also true on Sunday. After a long day walking all over at the Speedway and mall, we were really looking forward to hot tub, but unfortunately, it was out of order. The high lights of this hotel is the maid staff. We were offered assistance by 3 different ladies on the cleaning crew, as well as greeted friendly by all of them. They were observed helping parents with young children manage their way through the breakfast area and helped direct people where to locate the ice machines. Another highlight was the rooms. They were spacious, clean and the beds were very comfortable. All in all, I would recommend this place if you don't want to soak in the hot tub, and aren't planning on eating a hot breakfast. The comfortable beds and clean rooms out weighed the negative aspectss.
