The lady at the front desk was very nice & friendly. Checked me in in a few minutes told me everything I needed to know and up to my room I went. Room was clean, TV worked fine, but the toilet paper & Kleenex was very thin so you needed to double up on it. The front desk knew that... More

Rooms were very clean and quiet. I tried to check in at 1 am, but no one was at the desk for over 30 minutes. Left and came back the next day. Little frustrating after driving 12 hours upon hearing the death of my mother. Went somewhere else - but came back the next day due to the location being... More

We're so happy we did win you over. Thank you for coming back. I apologize that no one was at the desk upon your first arrival. Around that time at night we do run to print reports from other departments but are generally quick at getting back to the desk. I am so sorry for the inconvenience and to hear... More

I stayed here for a business trip. The hotel was fine, about what you would expect with a Holiday Inn. The rooms were a nice size, but it could use more lights and more outlets. I was also surprised that while the room had shampoo, there was no conditioner (the Holiday Inn Express I had just stayed at had some).... More

They put a lot of effort into making this low budget hotel into something more. The location by ipfw is hard to beat. The complimentary breakfast is pretty awesome and the staff were wonderfully accommodating to any of my requests during my entire stay (as they had been the two previous times I stayed). The rooms are very clean and... More

Nice wait folks and bartender. nice front desk too. Walls are tissue paper thin. Had to call front desk with noise complaint. It took two rolled up towels and two pillows blocking the door to get it quiet enough to sleep. I'd call it two stars not three. Meh to the meh.

I spent one night here for a business trip and was satisfied with both the staff and room. Everything was clean and the staff was efficient. We also used their board room for a meeting the next morning and had a catered breakfast. The staff was vigilant about keeping things refilled and hot. They made sure we had everything we... More

The staff, restaurant and bar of this hotel is what makes it stand out from other Holiday Inns. The breakfast is best out of any hotel I have stayed in while in Indiana. The rest of the hotel is what is generally expected out of a Holiday Inn Express. The hotel can get somewhat packed and noisy when there is... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn at Fort Wayne and received mixed service levels from different staff. The reception desk staff were nice, house keeping good and room service okay. I believe that TIPS were a huge expectation from some of the staff and the service levels depended on the quantity of tips. They hired us a taxi ( supposedly... More
