My wife and I really liked this hotel. We used points for the stay and there were a couple of minor issues with the room. Outlets were coming out of the wall (junction box and all) and there seemed to be mold behind the wall paper in the bath room. I mentioned this to the desk clerk on check out... More

Arrived extremely late and everything was ready on arrival. Was worried about the wedding party and noise but was put on a very quiet floor away from the elevators. Staff was great and room was decent. Breakfast "buffet" was actually a continental breakfast that was $8 but if that's the only thing wrong then I'm good with it. Would definitely... More

Thank you for the review, your comments are a very valuable tool to us and they are very much appreciated. I'm going to follow up with the management of the third party leased restaurant concerning your comment of the continental breakfast. My concern is that the buffet is to be a full breakfast of egg selections, breakfast meats, pancakes or... More

We picked this Hotel because of its vicinity to downtown St. Joseph within walking distance to the theatre and museums. The pool area is very nice and large with pool, sauna and hot tub. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean. The only thing that could be added is a free breakfast. We would stay here... More

Our favorite place to stay in St. Joe! Clean, safe, well maintained and great people right in the heart of the historic downtown. Great restaurant and 36th Street bar! Would stay no where else while in St. Joe!

Everyone was friendly, everything was clean. The pool and hot tub were in a lovely indoor atrium. Great ambiance. If anything, the jets on the hot tub were too powerful. There is no free breakfast, but we knew that when we booked. It was a little weird that there was a small refrigerator sitting on the floor but no microwave.... More

Hotel was very clean. The lobby was Beautiful. Restaurant and bar is right off of the lobby. Is in wakling distance of town and the theater was also with in walking distance where we saw Hairspray. The only negative for us was we put in a wake up call which we never got it. We would stay there again.

We spent a Thursday night here and found our king suite very comfortable. Walked around the small downtown area in the evening and enjoyed the old buildings, small parks and sculptures. Museums in easy driving distance and more restaurants around the Beltway. In hotel breakfast was very good. Only negative for us was no close access to the river walk... More

Thank you! We're pleased that you enjoyed your visit with us and St. Joe. Sorry that the river walk area is blocked from your view by the railroad and interstate highway viaduct. I do understand in the distant future the Department of Transportation is considering removing the viaduct and constructing a parkway with direct access to the river front area.... More

I wasn't expecting much from this hotel because it was a reward stay valued at 10,000 points. Upon walking in I was immediately impressed. This is a very nice Holiday Inn. Beautiful lobby, the restaurant/bar is right off the lobby, the pool area was amazing - not your typical small pool with a few chairs - but large and decorated... More

I am impressed with the restaurant great pricing but large portions. The service was spot on. The rooms are clean and the front desk checked us in with a smile even though it was a very late arrival. Large rooms pillows are what I would desire at every hotel.

I was attracted to this location because it seemed to have convenient access to the interstate and downtown locations. The property itself was adequate, but the location was not the most ideal. It seems to be a hotel that it was at its prime about two decades ago, but the neighborhood has declined a bit since then.
