Love the hotel, nice, friendly, neat. Staff all very accommodating. Breakfast is great. Beds are very comfortable. Rooms quite and no noise from the street or other rooms. I will stay there again when in town.

Just passing thru the area. Hotel was clean, beds were comfortable. There are a lot of restaurants close to choose from. Rooms are big. The only bad thing the pool water was so cloudy you couldn't see the bottom.

Our track team has been coming to this hotel the last 10+ years during the State Track Meet. The rooms are clean, the included breakfast is great, and the staff is top notch as they do all they can to accommodate teams & coaches of 20+ people. Looking forward to returning next year!

My husband and I stayed here recently on a trip to the LaCrosse area. The hotel was easy to find--right off the highway but without the highway noise. We were on the top floor in a quiet room. The room was a standard but large room, typical of Holiday Inn Express. This seemed like an older property, but everything was... More

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

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.

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.

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
