I have stayed here on previous occasions. I am impressed that this small hotel is so well run. Simple accommodations, with in-house breakfast that surpassed my expectations for hotel type (Chobani Greek yogurt, oatmeal and boiled eggs: it's like I am at home!). Simple accommodations, clean rooms, helpful and friendly staff, near Hwy and many nearby businesses. I will continue... More

I was here for 4 nights on business. Staff is A+++. Walls are thick, despite a full house there was very little noise from other rooms, occasional hallway sounds but overall very quiet. Didn't feel too clean though. Carpet is a bit sticky, hallways a bit dingy. Didn't really spend a lot of time in the room. Fine for in... More

Bemidji is centrally located in Minnesota - on a beautiful lake. The Holiday Inn Express is next to a McDonald's and many other recognizable food chains - which is important to me as it is important to my 14 year old who is traveling with me. It is also located next to a wonderful grocery store. Small enclosed mall behind... More

They only have one washer and one dryer on the third floor in the hallway. On multiple locations I saw people waiting in the hallway until their clothes were done. It took management's replacement of three refrigerators before I finally got one that worked on their fourth try. Their internet is not secure even though it is password protected. Overall,... More
