We enjoy staying at Holiday Inn for the breakfast. Although we now feel the beds are too soft (pillow tops and you have to wake up to turn over.) We were allowed to check in a little early which is always nice. We had to get a couple more sets of towels, but hey it was an early check in.... More

We stayed here for two nights while in town for a wedding. The staff was extremely friendly and always ready to assist. There were always fresh baked cookies in the lobby. The room itself was spacious and clean. Our only complaint was that the room smelled a bit musty and the sheets also smelled like they were nearing the end... More

My husband was here for business, so the kids and I decided to go along for something to do. The room was very spacious for all four of us, with two queen beds, NOT fulls! I appreciated that very much. The location was great. Close to the highway and shopping. Plenty of different restaurants to choose from. We were only... More

We stayed for one night for a short nights sleep on our way to New York. We checked in after midnight but it was quick and easy. Front desk clerk was pleasant and efficient. Location was a little off the beaten path, but not too far at all from the Hwy. 80. The room was nice sized, very new looking,... More

When i first found out I had to stay in Valparaiso, IN for a month to do a rotation for my PharmD program, I wasn't VERY excited. I come from a big city and this was a pretty small town to me! Being without my family , I figured I would be dying to go back home! Let me just... More

Second time staying while visiting Valpo. Very nice, friendly staff. Quick, efficient check in. Gave us a choice of first or second floor which was nice. Breakfast was standard fare - pretty good. Beds were comfy, rooms were clean. Only minor complaint would be the air conditioners cutting on and off all night at the wall units. All in all... More

Hello OHcampers, Thanks for staying with us again while you were in Valpo! It's always nice to hear about our guests arriving to a friendly presence at the front desk and a nice, clean room to sleep in. I'm really sorry about the air conditioner intermittently cutting on and off though. During the summer months the hotter nights can lead... More

I am a Gold member and front desk thanked me for my loyalty. I was a little sad they didn't have the Otis Spunkmeyer cookies. I was told that because it was a busy weekend with so many kids, that they chose not to put them out. After a 3 hour car ride I was really looking forward to having... More

I often stay at HI Express properties. I find the quality fairly consistent. This one was better than most -- and they all tend to be pretty good (at least dozen or more I've been to). First off, I rarely comment or care about what happens at the front desk as long as they are efficient. The person who was... More

We were greeted as we stepped up to the counter and thanked for our status with IHG. Check in was done w/o incident. When we walked into the room we got a free gift...a sock had been left on the floor from a past guest. How does house cleaning miss this?? This un-nerved us, but everything else worked out well....
