I had stayed at this property several years ago when it was a Hilton and found it rather lackluster then. They rebranded to a Holiday Inn late last year, according to the front desk clerk, and have completely renovated the property. The front desk staff was great from checkin to checkout. As mentioned, the rooms have been completely redone and... More

First time I have stayed at this hotel. Check in was fast and very friendly. The staff here is very nice. The hotel is recently remodeled. In fact, I think they are still finishing up some areas. The lobby is very nice and modern. It is nicely decorated. There are 4 very large screen TV's for viewing with a fireplace.... More

The only reason I gave four stars instead of five stars was because there was only coffee in the room. When I went downstairs to get tea bags, they gave me two and charged me $2.75. They should have been in the room and free. Little touches like this can make the difference between a "good" stay and a "great"... More

This hotel is going through a remodeling of both its inside and outside. Great staff, clean rooms. Restaurant and bar have a nice combo of kicking back after a work day and a view of the river. Only downfall is that we stayed on the fifth floor and it took at least 5-6 minutes to get any hot water! If... More

The Basilica of St. Mary braved the 6 hour drive to Milwaukee in order to sing their sweet heart outs at the Catholic Home and the St. John's Cathedral in downtown Milwaukee.

Not expecting much from a Holiday Inn, but my stay was very pleasant. Staff is super nice. Hotel is modern and clean. Bar has great beers and the best Caesar salad I have had in a while (with Anchovies and real dressing!).

I believe this was recently remodeled, and is now modern looking and very inviting. Rooms are spacious, loved the large desk/work space in the room. staff is super friendly and always greet you. Lounge bar is awesome, as well as the morning breakfast buffet. Would come back in a heartbeat!

We stayed at the hotel on an impromptu trip. The rooms were fabulous with tons of room. We wanted to find a great place to watch the Wisconsin game and the Lobby Bar and ended up having excellent TVs with great food. The bartender Brian and waitress Jenna were fabulous. So glad we decided to stay here!

Great location along the river. Property has been gutted and redone as a HI property. Will stay here again in a heartbeat. Enjoyed river view room. Food and service was great. Check in was very professional and welcoming. Everyone seems happy to work here. Good value for the dollar. Easy on/off from highway.
