Nice hotel. Nice town. Great staff. Good Breakfast. Lots of nearby restaurants and stores. LOVED the area--Mississippi River, Bluffs and Lacrosse. I loved visiting Grandads Bluff, Lacrosse, crossing the river to Minnesota and relaxing in the room.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express this past weekend and had a great stay! We almost stayed at a slightly cheaper hotel (Comfort Inn) but after reading the reviews and looking at maps, found this to be a better choice due to the location and reviews. I'm so glad we chose this hotel! Unlike the Comfort Inn (which is... More

We received in the mail a flyer for a campus visit special. the flyer stated we could stay at the Holiday Inn Express For $89. The coupon stated it would expire Jun 15, 2015. We booked a room for April 18 to visit our daughter who is attending UW La Crosse. Took the coupon with us and showed the front... More

Thank you for writing a review! We did recently negotiate the change with the school on the UWL rate this year. It rolled over on the 1st, and we sent out those cards long before that. We are so sorry that this wasn't more clearly stated before your arrival. If there is anything we can do to make this better,... More

I was passing through & needed a room for a night. Usually I don't stay in Lacrosse due to the cost, but this hotel is affordable. The location is good - near restaurants & is quiet. It is not the newest or nicest HIE, but it is clean & comfortable and the staff is friendly.

We arrived late but our reservation was still available and they had all of the paperwork ready to go. Room was clean and updated and everything was in working order. My daughter (13) slept on the pullout sofa and said this was very comfortable. Clean bedding and pillows for the sofa sleeper were available right in the room - a... More

Check in was quick and room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was fine. Great location, close to restaurants and shopping. Staff was very friendly. The pool area was nice and the kids loved having the pool to themselves mostly, since we stayed in the middle of the week. We requested a late check out and it was granted even though... More

Stayed here for two nights with the family. Rooms were clean, staff was friendly, kids loved the pool, and breakfast was fine. Great place to stay. Our room was right next to the elevator but i never heard it once.

Since late fall, I've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express in Onalaska (Lacrosse Area) 6 different weekends. I have come for graduate work at Viterbo University. Shawn and his staff have never disappointed. The staff at the front desk are efficient and friendly. The rooms are always meticulously prepared, and the hot morning breakfast (I especially enjoy the fresh pancakes!)... More

I enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Onalaska. It is very convenient to get to. Great places to eat close by. Shopping close by. The rooms are clean and quiet. The breakfast is amazing for travelers. Even when the hotel is full, the hallway are kept quiet at night.

The room was nice and big but the bathroom was not clean and we found long, black hair inside BOTH beds. The fitted sheets were very old, gray and dirty-looking. Not what I would expect from a Holiday Inn.
