Dear Kalamazoo, Thank you very much for staying with us! You made a good choice with the presidential suite - everyone had the opportunity to sleep late and the early riser could move around at his leisure. We enjoyed having you stay with us and look forward to your next trip. Happy Travels! George Sandona, General Manager More

Hotel was clean and beds were comfortable. Staff were very friendly and took care of our needs. Loved the ice cream hour for the kids. The only problem I had with this hotel is the suites are not large. It was a little difficult having play time with small children.

Hotel was filthy. Pool advertised open from 9 AM and was closed. Stains all over the carpet and chair. This property has a FOR SALE sign. Bathroom filthy. There also was a bug walking on the floor. Room smelled like humidity Don't stay there Such a disappointment!!

Dear Cecilia, I am so sorry that you had this experience but I am sure that this is not the location that you stayed at. Our hotel is not for sale and has never had any sign like this, and our pool opens at 6:00 AM, rather than 9:00. I appreciate your concern, however, for future travelers and would love... More

As a frequent business traveler, I’ve stayed at my fair share of Holiday Inn Express properties and have unfortunately had several stays that were little more than adequate. Happily, this was one of the best Holiday Inn Express hotels I’ve ever encountered. The hotel is located a couple blocks off the main drag (the very busy Bruce B. Downs Blvd.),... More
