Being an IHG loyalist, I was happy to find Holiday Inn Express at Watertown WI. There are just three hotels in the town and finding an IHG was a delight. The stay experience was great as well. Stayed for two weeks during the chilly January weather. Free and ample parking space was a delight too. Breakfast was the standard Holiday... More

Stayed at this Holiday Inn for a Wedding in town. The rooms and building are very clean and well appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable and i was able to sleep very well.

I'm so pleased to be at another one of these hotels. It's clean, neat. The carpet is a bit worn but nothing I can't handle. Modern, clean lines on the furniture albeit a little dated. Still, I care about location and cleanliness and of course service. I'm two hours late getting in but I was still greeted in a friendly,... More

Nice hotel. Rooms were big, clean, and nicely furnished. Staff was very nice and friendly. Even the housekeeping crew said "Thanks for staying with us" as we left which was nice. The pool was not so nice. The pool area itself is great but the the water was very murky and cloudy. I could not see my own feet as... More

Staying overnight to work in Watertown, this is convenient and clean. I was greeted as a Priority Club member, but not give the water/snack that others were given as I saw the next day. They do offer cookies to guest, but being gluten-free, I can't partake. The room was clean & comfortable. The breakfast in the morning offered scrambled eggs,... More

We are riding a Harley, so it's nice to have restaurants and shops in walking distance. There is no front portico to park the bike under , in case of rain. The pool was very warm and hot tub was about 102. Sink/vanity was outside of toilet/tub area...nice for 2 people getting ready at same time. Breakfast was the usual... More

When you're booking a Holiday Inn Express stay, you're generally looking for a somewhat "factory-made" and basic room, at a reasonable price. It met the expectations. Nothing fancy here - but it's probably what you're looking for if you're booking a Holiday Inn Express.

Holiday Inn Express has become a family favorite. Unfortunately, it has become the favorite of many families through the years so book early. Location is midway between Milwaukee and Madison with travel time equally short in either direction should you elect to visit either city. What's nice about this clean quiet, inviting place is that we have been enjoying it... More
