The hotel is a non descript building near the airport just outside the City of Watertown. The room was roomy and comfortable. The breakfast the next morning was a bit tasteless, more geared towards the business man or woman rushing to get out to a meeting. But I have to compliment the friendly and excellent service from the staff.

I drove through Watertown on a short road trip from Minneapolis to Fargo (I took the long way purposely) and decided to spend the night. The building is an odd shape, which makes it unique. Upon walking in, I was greeted with a smile, given my key, and was told each guest gets a shot at the plinko board that... More

We had to pull off the highway in a February blizzard and this hotel was right at the highway exit making it easy to find in a near white-out. The front desk clerk coped well with the sudden influx of customers (some more patient than others - Please, people, it's not the clerk's fault that the prices are too high... More

I stay here every time I'm in the area. The staff is excellent and very friendly. The cookies in the afternoon at the lobby are to die for! Chocolate reece's pieces! Room is clean. The breakfast bar is pretty standard. Comfy room.

My first impression of the hotel wasn't all that great. I was struggling to wheel the luggage cart through the front door and a woman mopping the floor and the front desk person just stood there and watched. I couldn't hold the door open and push the cart trough. I'd say helping someone in that situation isn't good hotel service,... More

I am a priority Rewards member and have never been treated so poorly at a Holiday Inn or Express. Rude, snippy, short tempered! This is how I describe the manager, she needs some people skills. She was rude and at no point wanted to work with the patrons' problems at hand. I didn't talk to one person at the place... More

We were in town for a family weekend and booked this hotel because it sounded like a great place for children to play. The pool was really dirty and in bad shape - lots of broken pieces (up high, nothing dangerous) and the kids slide was ok, but at the bottom was a large piece of plastic that was supposed... More

Overall, the hotel was clean, good breakfast, and the pool looked fantastic for kids. But I came away thinking I probably would not stay here again. The main reason was the room that I had was one of the smallest hotel rooms I have ever been in. Just trying to get to the window to open it was a chore... More
