Back to Watertown for business after 2 years. .. Nice to return to the welcoming and pleasant HI Express. Clean rooms and your usual Holiday Inn features. Nice warm breakfast of course. ... And the Bonus Tuesday evening manager's happy hour(s) is always nice to enjoy some Wisconsin brews and snacks. Until next time. ....

I recently stayed here for 3 months while working in the area and enjoyed my time while I was here. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the pool and whirlpool and sauna and the exercise room. The daily breakfast was also a nice treat. I also used the computer in the lobby area on occasion. The freshly baked... More

Clean room and common areas with nice cool air conditioning. Like a breath of fresh compared to the Super 8 across the street (which we initially had reservations). Nice pool and hot tub. Breakfast was good.

The room was average clean. I travel for work and use the iron and ironing boards regularly in hotels. This is not the worst setup I have seen but close. The iron was filthy underneath and I had to figure out a way to clean it. The pad on the very old ironing board was almost a rag. It took... More

Following a major, negative experience with this hotel chain last summer (see Trip Advisor review at Frankenmuth, MI, July 28, 2015), we needed a positive Holiday Inn experience, and Watertown delivered! Everything was in order, as we've come to expect, following years of patronizing Holiday Inn Express. Our reservation was in order, check-in smooth, and the room was comfortable, clean,... More

In Watertown, there are not a lot of hotel options and, during school events, it can be tricky getting a room at a good price. The Holiday Inn Express was a nice value. Room was spacious, had a chair to sit in, wifi was decent, and the room was clean. Having a small refrigerator really helps cut costs when staying... More

The hotel was nice compared to other Holiday Inn's I've stayed at. Our room was in the back so never saw any other part of the hotel. It was very average - what I saw of it - our room was comfortable - but the bottom of the door is raised so you can hear every noise outside in the... More

Stayed one night and there were no bad surprises. Beds were comfortable and had a selection of soft and firm pillows. Room was clean and comfortable with the usual amenities. Breakfast was OK to get the day started, the usual fare for a motel of this price range. Seemed a little overpriced but there was nothing that disgusted me during... More

Our baseball team stayed overnight and had excellent service as we planned an outdoor potluck after our games. It started raining and they let us use a conference room instead of standing out in the rain. They also set aside an area for everyone to watch the Blackhawks game! Breakfast had a lot of yummy choices! Would definitely stay there... More

Quality of sleep was outstanding - great mattresses & pillows. Room well maintained - very clean both room and bath. TV worked fine. Staff is the big plus here - very people friendly and accomodating. Very nice breakfast area - good selection for the mornings. You will enjoy!
