We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn over the holidays and really enjoyed the stay. From the front desk people, dinning staff to housekeeping everyone was great.

Average room, clean comfortable; staff friendly and helpful. This is a full service hotel, conference and event center, etc...nice to have bar and restaurant onsite, so you can have adult beverages and not worry. But no breakfast included. Beautiful views of the lake we saw from restaurant dining room. We were just passing through, so didnt know to ask for... More

Stayed at this property while I was working and watching the Rally America race. The staff was very helpful and kind. On the first night, tired and fatigued, they delivered a good dinner at the lounge. I think it was past the closing time for the kitchen, but they delivered anyway. Room was clean and comfortable. Did not use the... More

Great location right on the beach. Fun beach bar with live music on the patio. Food was great. Enjoyed a lake side room on the second floor. Our small dog was comfy on the balcony and we were able to dine on the deck and listen to the entertainment.

We purchased a room for 3 nights so that we could come shower and relax in the mornings. The first day we had black hairs in beds and on the bathroom before we used anything. The manager came up and apologized and was super nice. The next day there were beetle looking bugs on the carpet. We over paid and... More

Very nice and helpful staff, comfortable beds. We had a wonderful time there. The indoor pool is great and the breakfast buffet was really good. We will definitely be back for another vacation. We really enjoyed the location also.

This is a great location for a hotel. The beachside hotel is great for families. However the pool was closed and no one told us when booking or even upon check in. One day it was miserable outside and the pool would have been great for my kids. The front desk also didn't explain anything about rentals of water equipment.... More

Turbomomof2, thank you for your review and I apologize that you were not informed of our pool situation prior to check-in. We unexpectedly (which is why advance notice was not an option) had one of the water pumps go out in the pool area and closed it down as a safety precaution. We did get another pump installed in less... More

My husband and I had excellent service our entire weekend stay. We got rooms through IHG points. We booked online and it said we were going to get two standard rooms. We ended up with a King Suite on the 3rd floor, and a King whirlpool room, beachside. Wow! We couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. There were paddle... More

Beds are very comfortable. Nice water pressure in the shower. Great location right on the shore of Detroit Lake--has a great seating area outside. Downside is that it is a bit dated. A/C is very loud in the room.
