Does anyone know? Apart from the fact that the express one is cheaper I mean . Will the price difference mean I'm missing out on essentials or luxuries do you think? Has anyone stayed at a Holiday Inn Express?
Thanks in advance!
I have. It was really clean new and spacious. (had a double bed and a sofa bed) Breakfast is included, its a cold buffet but quite a big choice. They are more like nicer travellodges than proper hotels; ie no facilities or restaurants, but usually near a restaurant I think.
I've stayed at the Taunton one. It was no different to the Holiday Inn I've stayed at in terms of the room. As far as I could tell the Holiday Inn just had more facillities, like a leisure club, restaurant and cooked breakfast!
According to my dh (who knows these things) the difference is EVERYTHING. The Holiday Inn is better for comfort, quality, size, decent food, extras (gyms,saunas etc), attentive staff ... everything really.
Holiday Inn Express has none of the above.
For Holiday Inn Express read 'Travel Inn'.
Its much nicer than a travelodge, never been to a travel inn. In the one I went to there was a big area with tables, sofas etc. and the breakfast was there. It depends what you want. Obviously a hotel has lots of facitilites but then it costs a lot more. Its more like a motel; for a one or 2 night stop over not an actual holiday or luxurious break.
Oh I don't know what to do now!!! All I want is an overnight stay for the 4 of us, can't afford too much but don't want cheapo accommodation so thats why I thought of Holiday Inn or Travelodge, plus the children would be able to eat free
