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.

Our room was really nice, very spacious! It was also very clean and the appliances and amenities were updated. I'm always impressed with the breakfasts at Holiday Inn Expresses... I realize that they are nearly the same at each location but I still rant and rave about them. I really appreciate getting a decent breakfast at a hotel, and not... More

Clean room, decent breakfast. Lots of restaurant options nearby. I work on the Internet and the connection speeds were very slow. Would not recommend for the traveler who requires decent Internet access.

It's a Holiday Inn Express so the rooms are pretty standard to any other Holiday Inn Express. The staff however is very friendly and helpful. There was some sort of tournament and a bunch of children were staying there and kept running up and down the hall. We had to complain about the noise twice. I was reaching for the... More

This hotel is nicely located on the main drag near lots of shopping. I was immediately impressed with the size of the rooms. Great sitting area separate from the beds, flat screen TV, large bathroom. The only minor issue would be some mold under the rim of the toilet. Other than that, room was otherwise clean and beds very comfortable.... More

We had a hard time finding a hotel that wasn't completely booked for our fall leaf weekend trip, but somehow this place wasn't sold out. The rooms are nice, ours had a separate living area. The shower was huge and had two shower heads in it. Everything was clean. We grabbed the free breakfast, which had plenty to offer--pancakes, biscuits,... More
