We've used Holiday Inn for over 30 years as we travel since most of the hotels take animals. We chose the Holiday Inn for that reason. On the site it states pet friendly. But after traveling 10 hours, they told us we could never leave the dog in the room. We had to take our dog to dinner in 90... More

Stayed here a couple of nights with a group for business. All the staff I came across was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and fairly quiet. Hotel was a little dated, but clean. Breakfast was the standard HI fare. The cookies that they offer in the afternoons were delicious.

The staff at this hotel is great from the moment you arrive. Front desk is friendly, outgoing and greeted us and recognized us right away. Housekeeping was very accomodating of our schedule and very attentive to our needs. Great recommendations for nearby restaurants and anything we needed. Big city service in a small town!

It's fine but nothing special. It's seems to be the best choice in the area. It's a bit outdated and run down. It has an odd smell that I really don't want to think about too much. The water is not good, bring bottled to drink. We only had 3 towels in our room (there were 4 of us). It's... More

Location - good if you are traveling, right off of the highway. The hotel was a bit dated but very clean. The pool was small and noisy from the highway, but had a nice patio. The elliptical was broken in the fitness center so that basically just left a treadmill and weight machine, which was a bit disappointing. Pillows and... More

We visited my husband’s family in Indiana and being a born and bred New Yorker, I was pretty nervous about where we would stay while there. I read other Trip Advisor reviews about this Holiday Inn Express and they were all very good. I agree. While this HI is not at all luxurious, it is clean, the beds are very... More

Upon checkin, the staff was friendly and welcoming. I was issued my keys and wifi instructions, given breakfast and checkout times, and directed to the elevator - very efficient. I was a warm day, but the hotel was cool and comfortable. When I arrived at my room, I noticed it was a bit warm, and I proceeded to adjust the... More

Room comfortable and clean but could use additional electrical outlets and better lighting . A good value for anyone visiting the Rensselaer area. We were part of a group using a meeting room for a party and the staff was very helpful.

Located just off I-65 very near St Joseph's College. Spent one night and found the hotel to be clean. The carpet was very old in our room and needed a cleaning but otherwise all was spotless. The beds were good - slightly on the hard side for my tastes but I know many like a very firm mattress. Breakfast was... More
