We had a very comfortable stay here. This is typical of most Holiday Inn Expresses. The staff was very professional and engaging. Check in and out were very efficient, especially since I did not have a reservation. The front desk clerk could answer my questions without checking the computer which was nice. The room itself was clean and the wireless... More

We were in town for a wedding and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for two consecutive nights. Overall, the hotel was as nice as we expected. There were a few hiccups with the room. The air conditioning had some issues and wasn't cooling super well. There was some damage to the ceiling in the bathroom and the drain wouldn't... More

This hotel was so very clean, all the staff so friendly and the amenities were unbelievable. I was there for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. We were allowed to have our dog. We were able to have a couple restaurants deliver food. I appreciated the cleanliness and the friendly and competent staff.

This was our second stay at this hotel since May. We found this stay to be even more delightful than the first time. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast was good with a nice choice of things to eat. Since we travel from Florida to Michigan, we will probably stay here again.

My sister and I were meeting half way between our houses and found Kendallville. The Holiday Inn was a great place for us - Amanda at the front desk was so personable, friendly and professional, we felt very much at home and glad we chose this hotel. The room was in good shape, breakfast was good, the location is good... More

Front Desk was awesome, no stress, super accomodating. Loved the fact that they didn't care when breakfast was over. Never stressed you out. Very responsive to any needs. Nice, clean property convenient to all that Kendallville has to offer.

The only problem is Room 320 STINKS; literally, of cigarette smoke. We tried to open the window, but there was no screen, and because of outside lights, there were tons of bugs just outside the window. My son had room 317, which smelled fine, but there was a party in the parking lot that kept him awake. I'm giving this... More

The servcice we received from all the staff at Holiday Inn was fantastic. We were treated very well during are stay. Breakfast was always very good, warm, tasty and the breakfast area always clean. Also the hospitality suite we were given to use was always well taken care of. Can't wait for next year's outing in Kendallville.

My husband and I stayed here on our way from Florida to Michigan. It turns out that the gal that checked us in is from Michigan so it was fun talking with her. Our room was nice but the air conditioning was a bit loud when it kicked on. If it kicks on a lot, it's difficult to sleep. We... More
