This is a nice HI Express at a good location along I-75. Our room was perfectly clean and the bed was plenty comfy. The "Soft" pillows are still a bit firm, and the internet slows down quite a bit when everyone checks in in the evening. Breakfast was plentiful. As we checked out, the only luggage cart in sight was... More

This was the nicest hotel. Rooms were very clean... Beds were very comfortable. The pillows were soft and fluffy and the tv had great channels and our room also had a DVD player which was a nice treat. They have a sauna/pool and hot tub. Pool was warm and clean. You could smell the chlorine as soon as you walked... More

Comfortable beds, updated guest rooms, microwave/fridge in room, nice towels, clean bathroom with granite countertops, nice TVs with good channel selections, free/fast internet. Front desk staff was courteous and helpful. Only complaint - the floor/ceilings let a lot of sound through. Sometimes it sounded as though the guest in the room above me was going to fall through the floor.... More

I stayed at this property on 7/7/2014. Over all it's a nice place. I'm sure it was a different hotel before it became a Holiday Inn Express, but they have done an amazing job remodeling to fit the Holiday chain. Lobby is spacious, clean and up to date with furnishing and the fire place is beautiful. There is a small... More

Overall not a bad hotel. The Holiday Inn Express chain is pretty consistently good for all their hotels. Everything was clean and comfortable. The rooms have a small refrigerator and microwave. The breakfast area was well stocked even though it was busy. Seating at breakfast can be a little tight since there are 10 or less tables. The indoor pool... More

Stayed for one night with family of five. Rooms were decent size, clean with comfortable beds. Nothing to wow you but provides a nice, pleasant stay. Not a large hotel but had a decent size breakfast bar area and pool with hot tub. Not many name brand hotel options as you get this far north or on the east side... More

Stayed twice in ten days; once on our way down to southern Ontario and once on our way back home. First time: didn't exactly get the best reception; felt like I was bothering her; got a little resistance when I asked for seniors rate and a room on the ground floor since both of us are handicapped. Second time: got... More

1st time I've ever given 5 stars and that may be a little generous, but we really enjoyed our 2 night stay. Convenient location and friendly quick check in.

We stayed in the Grayling Holiday Inn Express on our way home recently. Great overnight stay, beds were great and it was very quiet even with all of the children in the hall heading to the pool. They have staffed the breakfast room very well, especially on Sunday to make sure everyone if happy and fed. I congratulate the manager... More
