We stayed one night after visiting the zoo. The hotel was clean, and the staff was friendly. The bed is very comfortable, and the room was very clean. The free breakfast was good, and there a lot of options, including biscuits and gravy, sausage, fruit, oatmeal, etc. I would stay here again.

The front desk staff were wonderful and friendly. The building was clean and well kept. Our room was large and quiet and the bed was comfy. The a/c unit worked well and the room had a microwave, coffee maker and fridge. The bathroom was good sized and the shower was easy to figure out (very important in my mind) and... More

Starting with check in, late night, with Deacon, this facility is staffed by a GREAT staff! In this day and age it is rare to find front desk people who give 110%. Deacon started the trend here and Matt in the morning finished it! Both were very professional and personable-they should be the standard for the industry! Rooms were clean... More

The traffic is much lighter at this exit than others in Fort Wayne and there is easy access to lots of places to eat. Plus a grocery store across the street. It sits right behind a State Police unit so I would think there is an additional safety factor. The hotel is newer and being kept up well. I've stayed... More

This is a typical Holiday Inn Express. You know what to expect - a clean, comfortable, no frills hotel. This location delivers as expected. Where this hotel stands apart, however, is the staff. I have never stayed at a budget hotel with such kind and friendly staff. The front desk clerks and the cleaning staff were so very friendly and... More

I booked a room for family (2 adults & 4 kids) traveling into town for my daughter's birthday party. My home is small so we made generous use of the hotel over the course of the weekend, including the pool (kid favorite) and the common room for us to all be able to eat dinner together.

Pretty typical Holiday Inn Express. I was on the 4th Floor. There is an elevator. Nice: Large room. Q-tips and Mouthwash samples in the bathroom. Greek Yogurt at the breakfast bar. WiFi Internet was fast. Not-so-Nice: No in-room Fridge. They were working on breakfast at 7 am when I went down.
