Complimentary breakfast with standard run of the mill Holiday Inn Express fare, WiFi, parking, pool, fitness center, business center, guest laundry room, etc… All the basics you need for a mid-level business class hotel.
Check-in was quick and the room requested was immediately available. Some first floor rooms have parking spots in front of the outside facing room doors so if you’re driving and would like to park your car in front of your room be sure and make a special request. There is a large parking lot in front of the main entry for the upper floors access via the elevators. My room appeared to be recently built out and in good repair. It was clean and comfortable for my needs on this extended business trip.
Complaints are few and mostly minor. The biggest complaint though isn’t so minor and isn’t so easy to remedy: the noise level. There was not enough sound proofing built into the walls, floors and ceilings of this hotel. As a result I could her the two women in the room to one side of me arguing about something at 12:30 AM, I could hear the family with small kids playing in the room on the other side of me and could hear what sounded like teenagers wrestling in the room above me until 04:30 AM in the morning. Once they finally gave up for the evening all of the 5 AM risers started waking and I could hear just about every shower and toilet at my end of the building going off in succession. Just to add insult to injury do you remember that beautiful view of the Umpqua River from every room? Well when the ever busy I-5 Pacific Highway is less than 100 yards from the hotel that river makes for a sound tunnel. So that is a long way of saying if you stay here you better bring ear plugs or you’re going to find sleeping difficult. The hardest of sleepers would have trouble here.
Other than that the only too minor complaints I had were the toilet and toilet seat were loose in my bathroom. Maintenance fixed up straight away the toilet seat but the toilet itself rocked and rolled during my entire trip In addition the bottom of the bathroom door was in rough shape most likely from water damage or a small dog scratching at it while locked up. Neither of those issues would keep me from returning.
Since Holiday Inn Express Roseburg is the newest hotel in Roseburg it tends to be booked full on a regular basis. Every weekday morning I dined in the breakfast area the room was pretty much packed and just about every parking spot out front taken. Therefore be sure and make a reservation as far in advance as possible.
Conclusion: Holiday Inn Express Roseburg is the hotel to stay at when visiting or simply passing through Roseburg, Oregon.
