“New, comfortable hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2010

The hotel is fairly new, is very modern and tastefully decorated.

My suite was very large, was very well equipped and I had an excellent sleep. What more do you want?

The staff are friendly and helpful.

The only thing that could be improved is the kitchen's technique in poaching eggs.

The eggs arrived already broken swimming in water, so it was not very palatable. But I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2010

We stayed three nights. We liked its location near the mall, but not too near the mall. Several restaurants nearby. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The pool was nice as well. It was slightly harder to find this hotel, but sometimes that can be a good thing because it's not right in the thick of traffic and such. We'd stay here again (as opposed to the Holiday Inn Express which is closer to the highway).

Our stay at the Holiday Inn at 3155 Boardwalk Drive had good and bad points.

Good
1. Nice gym.
2. Clean hotel.
3. Indoor pool.

Bad
1. Very noisy--doors slam because the property is not well constructed.
2. No manager on-site to address customer concerns.
3. Mediocre breakfast.
4. Bad plumbing

We have travelled quite a bit for work and pleasure and we are surprised that this hotel gets a top ranking, primarily because noise carries and the staff does not seem to care about our concerns...This is unacceptable.......

We stayed five nights in the executive board room suite....it was huge!!! We had a fridge, great card table and tons of spare room. The only downside was the one potty....wish there had been 1.5 ;) but other than that, it was lovely.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2009

In general, I do not care for the Holiday Inn chain of hotels. However, upon reading good reviews of the newest Holiday Inn in Ann Arbor, I was convinced to stay here. The location of the hotel is convenient to I-94, and is located in the south part of Ann Arbor, where I used to to live (and in my opinion, the best part of town to live). The facilities are very clean, modern, and a pleasure to stay in. The desk staff are generally very courteous. My only complaint about this hotel is that they do not offer a complimentary breakfast. The restaurant in the hotel is overpriced and not worth going to given the multitude of options in the greater Ann Arbor area. This Holiday Inn surprised me, and I will not stay anywhere else in Ann Arbor unless I am forced to.

The hotel seemed very new, it was clean and the service very good. we got the room from Hotwire so the price was under $70 which I felt was a good deal. I do not like payining $120 etc... for a hotel room unless I am in a fancy place in a big city.

The value was great under $75.

The linins were very new, lots of amenities, fridge, iron microwave, nice shower and good size bathroom. The room had a nice chair to relax or read in.

I did not use the pool but have a pet peeve about pools that are only accessed if you walk through the lobby. This hotel was designed well, you get off the elevator in an enclave area and can access the pool from there, no lobby marching in a wet suit. The work out room was the same.

It was quite and clean, good place to stay.

It would be nice if HI would provided a free breakfast.

The room had plenty of outlets to plug in all the gizmos and good internet service.
