My Wife and I from Missouri and friends from Indiana and Wisconsin met and stayed at the Holiday in early December 2014. This is an annual get-together to visit and to view the Christmas lights in the city. We were treated with special attention by Julie (the Owner), and stayed in clean, quiet and comfortable rooms with recently-renovated bathrooms. Continuous... More

My daughter,grandaughter,and myself stayed at the Holiday Inn to watch a show that evening. Our room 121 was nothing to brag about. Stains all over the carpet,baseboards cracked and breaking off in bathroom. Went to take my shower and water only came out of a few of the holes on the shower head. Was not worth the money it cost...

My fiancé and I have stayed at the Holiday many times. The rooms are clean and the staff always friendly and willing to help in any way they can. The hotel restaurant offers very delicious home made food and yummy desserts. The pool area is very quiet and clean. We always feel at home here and love it so much... More

I spend my weeks on the road and stay in lots of hotels. It is very hard to find updated and clean hotels in medium to small sized communities. The Holiday in Olney is clean and the rooms are updated. The beds are comfortable with large fluffy pillows. The staff is friendly. I had a buffet dinner in the dining... More

I travel around Southern Illinois, Western Indiana, and Eastern Missouri for work. Any time I am working within an hours drive, I make sure to stay at The Holiday in Olney. Not only is it clean and neat, comfortable beds, and conveniently located, but the staff is absolutely fantastic and make you feel like a close friend or family member.... More

I always try to look on the bright side of every hotel, after all everyone of them has something negative. They all cant be four star hotels. I have stayed at this hotel more than once on business. With only two hotels in town, this one is the better of the two. So lets start with Pros: it is clean.... More

My family's recent stay at the Holiday in Olney was comfortable and easy, and management was attentive and courteous. In addition to 6 clean and fresh rooms, the Holiday catered a reception for our friends and family that was outstanding. Thank you Holiday for your kindness and support.

My boyfriend and I just went to the restaurant today after his uncle and cousin told him how good it was and we were in the area. Well the place was packed! But I don't know why. We were seated and after we ordered it took a long time for the food to come out! And all I got was... More

The hotel seemed mice in the lobby, but I felt quite unsafe as I approached my room. I had to cross a large banquet room where all the lights were off. I soon realized none of the side doors to the parking lots were locked. There were many unlit areas and the front desk was through two closed doors. I... More
