Last month I took a trip to East Texas for my nephew’s High School Graduation. The trip from my house to Marshall, Texas would take approximately five hours and I was traveling with all four of my children, ages 4-19! Getting to the graduation ceremony, being held at East Texas Baptist University that evening, was certainly a struggle and a very long drive, but we made it!
Thanks to Holiday Inn Express, of Marshall, we were provided with a complimentary room for our weekend stay.

This was with out a doubt, a god-send…My sister was expecting a fairly large turn-out for the graduation and graduation party, so staying at her house was probably not the best idea for my crew.
Upon arrival to the Holiday Inn Express, we were greeted by the desk clerk, registered and given access to our room very quickly. The room was very tastefully decorated, exceptionally clean and ready for us to relax in comfort before preparing to attend the graduation ceremony.

The hotel provided a complimentary breakfast every morning and it was awesome! My kids and I were very pleased with the food variety, taste, quality and quantity available of each item. There was an attendant available during the allotted breakfast time for anything that we may have needed and there was plenty of space to sit down and enjoy the meal in comfort. My kids chose to take their breakfast back to the room so that they could watch television and eat in their pajamas.
Not only did the hotel provide complimentary necessities such as shampoo, toothbrush, razor, etc…but also hosted a mini-store for countless other items that guests may want. There was even ice cream! What a nice amenity to include so that guest don’t feel the need to travel outside of the hotel for snacks and other convenient items.

The pool was definitely a hit for us! The temperature was just right, there were plenty of lounge chairs and tables available and even a small BBQ area which would have been a great place to relax and hang out if our time had allowed for it. There were other accessible amenities such as a Fitness Room, guest laundry area and Business Center for guest convenience.

All in all, this hotel experience was delightful. I could not have asked for anything more from The Holiday Inn Express in Marshall. Our stay was short but incredibly comfortable. My family and I would certainly choose to stay here again in the future.
