In town to drop off our Freshman at FSU, HIBR was the only hotel with rooms available at a late booking. Probably because it was $150 a night. That being said... Room was clean, and has an 'always on' fan option which I like. Bed was one of the best I have slept on in a non-luxury hotel. Free wifi,... More

Let's start with the entry. It is open, spacious, and very welcoming. They have moved the smoking area away from the front door allowing for a pleasant entrance. It is also appealing even to a finicky traveler. Moving to the check-in area there are friendly faces to assist with getting rooms. Alex and Hannah have proved most beneficial with anything... More

We had a good trip, we thought breakfast was included in price however it wasn't next time I'll eat the "The Rock Cafe " on campus. Pool was nice however the hot tub doesn't work.

Customer service is decent here, but the stay is far from desirable. Our room was dirty. Perhaps not filthy, but dirty: hair on the mattress pad, carpets not vacuumed, and (perhaps my favorite) pubic hair on the toilet seat. The employees were nice at check-in/out, but I would not stay here again. Unfortunately, my husband travels here regularly for business,... More

Located very near Ferris State U and an accompanying golf course, this property is easy to find. It is still in the process of being renovated, but appears very close to being completed.

I was a guest speaker for the Annual Big Rapids Festival of the Arts in February, and they had me stay 5 nights at the Holiday Inn, mostly because it it one of the few hotels in town that has a restaurant in the facility.
