We stayed here in April and returned for another visit in early July. This time we had two grandchildren. As others have mentioned and we agree, the staff is very accommodating. The standard HIE breakfast had a couple of new items (improved oatmeal and pancakes). While we wish it was a little less pricey, we like being able to count... More

I often stay at this hotel in Watertown,Wisconsin. It is the best option but wish it had better restaurants within walking distance. What they do have are very average. They serve fresh cookies and staff does a nice job. The breakfast is standard Holiday Inn stuff and I am not a fan of the fake eggs. Wish they could get... More

The front desk staff was very accommodating. . .in fact, we asked to check in early and we were immediately given a room. The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. We held the graduation reception in one of their meeting rooms and the staff did... More

The room is on the expensive side but we were very happy with it. Comfy bed, clean room. We would have liked a thermostat to make it a bit colder. Breakfast was excellent! Overall a great hotel, just a bit more money than we are used to spending.

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

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
