We have stayed at this property annually for the last 5 years. Think my last review was something like "almost outstanding". Well folks, this year you ARE OUTSTANDING! Spotlessly clean room with new carpet. Loved having one sink in the main area with the microwave and fridge, and a separate full bathroom. Made getting ready so much quicker. Beds and... More

This is the best hotel in Gaylord. I've stayed at two others in town and this one has a lot of advantages! The place is updated, clean, and has good service. The pool and hot tub areas were relaxing and clean. The breakfast was typical of a Hi Express. Would definitely stay here again!

This property is fantastic! Location is perfect as it is right on Main St. and off of I-75. Rooms are clean and modern, restaurants within walking distance, and a great value for the price. I have stayed at this property for pleasure and we use this property for business travel.

Stayed here a number of times and it has always been good. Service at the front desk was excellent. My room was very comfortable and clean. This hotel is right off I-75. There was a Mexican restaurant right next door that was very good. It was nice that I did not have to get into the car to get something... More

I was on the road and called ahead to get one of the last rooms on a Friday night. The lady working the front desk was nice and helpful. The hotel was clean, warm, and inviting. The only issue was the number of snowmobilers. There were quite a few that unloaded their sleds from the trailers and parked them in... More

Thank you for the feedback regarding your stay. We are happy that you overall enjoyed your stay with us, aside from the parking situation of course. Our parking lot does tend to become a little messy come snowmobile season and we do try our best to communicate with all of our guests what correct parking protocol is. I apologize that... More

A group of us regularly get together for XC skiing this time of year, and we couldn't all get reservations at the Hampton, which is our regular gathering spot. The Holiday Inn is convenient being on the main street, and close to the interstate. Our rooms looked like they were recently redecorated, and they were comfortable and quiet; lots of... More

Great location close to everything. The front desk gal when we called and checked in was really helpful and cheerful! Great to see someone with a smile on their face after a long days drive. Nice Mexican restaurant right across the parking lot.

Anybody who's ever been to Gaylord Michigan knows that it's pretty much the last stop for up north. There's a whole lot of old hotels that are definitely run down and definitely need it need to be torn down or renovated. This was not one of those is brand-new and the staff was nothing but nice and we had a... More

This hotel is clean, has friendly / very attentive staff and seems to have been recently updated. Good place to stop while driving "up north". The front desk had a wine opener at no extra charge. The breakfast was just fine, and really convenient to have.
