We've stayed at a lot of Holiday Inns, and this was definitely sub-par. The staff was nice enough, but everything was in need of sprucing up. Among many examples: our bathroom ceiling had a hole in it, and there are large holes where the clothing hooks had broken off the door. The bathmat towel was soaking wet - not changed... More

Stayed 2 nights for business. Staff was friendly and breakfast was good. Rooms were a good size and clean. The only complaint I would have is the walls are very thin. I could here the room next door tv and a man coughing all night.

A good solid hotel. Maybe in spots beginning to show a little wear, but nothing to keep me from staying there again. Check-in was quick and easy. The rooms were clean. TV stations were plentiful. The breakfast was excellent.

This is the poorest quality Holiday Inn I've ever stayed at and felt disappointed that it was under the holiday Inn express name. It was very outdated, dirty, and the service was poor. We were on a long trip and decided to stay over instead of driving through Chicago. Next time I'd just drive through instead of wasting my money.... More

My son and his fiancee were traveling back to the Chicago area during a snowstorm this afternoon. They got off the highway and could not get to the ramp to get back on. They had their dog with them, this is a no pet hotel. I can understand that but in an emergency they were turned away. This is a... More

No complaints about this property. Was a bit difficult locating the property off the exit since the access road is hidden behind a fast food restaurant (and was snow covered at the time). Check in and out was easy and rate included wi-fi and breakfast. Room included a king bed, microwave and refrigerator and was clean. Bed was average and... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the past couple years. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean, beds are comfortable and the breakfast is what you would expect. It is a convenient stop right off the highway with a few restaurants near the property and more in town. The water pressure in the... More

I was verbally acosted by a rude, abrasive representative who called me a "b***h" when I refused to "hurry to my room" after leaving a family event. This woman forced her way into my room, yelling and calling me "mouth" while ignoring the fact that I was TRYING to go to bed! I would never, ever go to this nightmare... More

We just decided to go to the Purdue football game a bit last minute and the hotels closest to the University were all booked. Typically, a Holiday Inn Express is a good bet. This one is in much need of repair. It was old and outdated. The "mini fridge and microwave" in the room looked as if I took them... More

We are a nature lover's paradise with several famous wild life preserves near the hotel including the resting place for the Sandhill Cranes on their semi annual migration. We are 'Your Natural Destination' hotel. We are also the closest hotel to the new Fair Oaks Dairy Adventure attraction (11 miles).
