Room rates way too high for this hotel. My family and I stayed two nights at this hotel and the only reason we stay the second night is because we had non refundable reservations. We had room 124 which is a two room suite and it was gross. The couch was so dirty and worn I didn't want my kids... More

We got a King Suite with a couch Hide A Bed. Open the Hide A Bed and found HUGE urine stain on the mattress pad! Not sure why that got overlooked while cleaning rooms. We wanted to use that for our daughter to sleep on. The overall cleanliness of the room was actually pretty good. Not worth the $150/night rate.... More

as far as being a business traveller this location has proven to be the worst my company stays at Holiday Inn Express all the time without problem this location seems to have an inability to keep the place quiet.-- last night there were 11 or 12 girls under the age of 10 in the room next to me I heard...

Another exciting time in Watertown, OK I am kidding Watertown is not a hot bed of activity in the dead of winter. This s a very nice HIE if you have kids you are splitting the cost between a hotel and entertainment so bring the pack and have a great time by the pool! So here are some thoughts: I... More

We stayed here for one night on our way home for the holidays. We needed a place that would allow dogs. We booked using the app in the parking lot. Once inside we checked in easily. Requested a room near a door since we had a lot of stuff to bring inside. The room itself was your standard HI Express.... More

I stayed there for business last week. Overall, the hotel was fine; very clean, good breakfast, no complaints on the room. My only problem was the internet was inadequate for business needs - I found that using the hotspot on my iPhone was MUCH faster than the hotel internet. I noticed speeds of 20kb / sec when my computer needed... More

Stayed here to break up a long drive on a Sunday evening. Initial impression was very good as they had the front row parking spots reserved for IHG Rewards Club Members and everything was clean in the common areas. Check-in was fine although they are one of the few I've stayed at that did not offer bonus points or snacks... More
