“Gorgeous hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We've stayed at several Holiday Inn Express locations, though this one was by far our favorite. With a huge fire-pit ringed with adirondack chairs out back, to an oversized patio off the breakfast room that joins with the pool deck - this place was very well designed.

All the 1st floor rooms are accessible from the outside, while the 2-4th floors had large hallways. We were on the 2nd floor, across from the laundry room and heard little noise.

On the down-side, we went down for breakfast as it opened at 7am, and found that it wasn't ready yet. Muffins, and cold items were out, but we waited for 10-15 minutes for the eggs/pancakes/etc. When the eggs did come out, they were definitely the reconstituted kind, and had a very strong metallic/rancid taste - unfortunately we threw ours out and had to stop along the road to get a decent breakfast.

Check-in/out was swift, and the hotel offered a concierge service which was nice.

Overall a decent stay.

Room Tip: Room 210 is across the hallway from the Laundry room.

Directly off I-90, along a busy access road, the hotel has recently been renovated. It has all the amenities - free wi-fi, indoor pool and hot tub, small gym, and complimentary breakfast. Our room was on the first floor and has a door that goes outside to the parking lot (very convenient for loading and unloading luggage from the car) and one to the main hallway, a king bed, flat screen tv with lots of cable channels, a small frig, microwave, desk & chair, and upholstered chair and futon. Solid room, clean and comfortable. Also, there was a "manager's special" with complimentary chicken Caesar wraps - all the fixings to make your own - plus beer and wine until 7pm. No views and some noise from the interstate since our room faces it.

This Hotel is clean and convenient and has all he amenities you would expect at a Holiday Inn Express. We booked online and upon check-in, the clerk told me he couldn't give me the rate I reserved at; it was $20 LESS! When does that ever happen? They have a friendly Weimaraner who is the resident mascot and the hard-working staff is friendly from bottom to top. It's obvious that they love their work which is indicative of great management. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. Bed was great with choice of firm or soft pillows, the shower was good, but I seemed to lose hot water rather quickly. They have a nice machine on all 3 floors; two of which were broken, making my search for ice an adventure. They had warm fresh baked cookies at the front desk in the evening and a free breakfast each morning, complete with eggs, biscuits and gravy, selection of breakfast meats, cereal, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, toast and bagels, hard boiled eggs and yogurt, coffee and a selection of teas. I didn't use the pool or spa, but it looked nice. All in all, a great choice at an affordable price.

Room Tip: Third floor rooms tend to be quieter.

Mark P,
Thank you for your recent stay with us and the review you shared. You highlighted parts of our hotel that we are most proud of including comfortable & clean rooms, evening cookies, a great hot breakfast, and of course our service-minded staff! Of course our favorite part of the job is meeting and welcoming great guests such as yourself. To address two notes you mentioned, we have just replaced two of our hot water heaters and fixed two of our ice machines. I am truly sorry these impacted your stay, but know that they have gotten proper attention. We look forward to your next great stay with us!

I am a well traveled and very busy person of wealth and high standards. I was raised in Coeur d'Alene and return every few years for both business and leisure. I tell you this because I normally cannot be bothered with requests to fill out online surveys or write reviews such as this. I can merely offer the word of a well meaning, experienced traveler. This hotel satisfied my every need and was 100% convenient and courteous in doing so. I cannot say such things often or of many.

I was particularly pleased that all amenities were open and available 24 hours and that the maid service is well organized as to not bother me unless summoned. Once summoned, the maids are prompt and effective. I live and work in Asia and therefore keep a somewhat nocturnal schedule at times. Furthermore, the phone charger that I forgot there was waiting for me at the front desk two days later.

Room Tip: I loved my single king with extra living space.

I've stayed frequently at Holiday Inn Express and this one is definitely at the top of my list. The hotel is about 7 years old but it still looks very new. The rooms are nicely appointed and very comfortable. It is easy to get to I-90 and to downtown Coeur D'Alene. The breakfast is very plentiful with lots of choices. There was plenty of seating both inside and outside. I had a suite which faced the back of the property and was very quiet. The room was large with 2 TV's, small kitchenette area. If you needed any dinnerware, etc. you only had to ask for it. The pool and spa were indoors. I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back of facility are the quietest.

I always love the Hampton Inns! OUr hosts gave us some good tips for dinner - the Woldf Lodge was one. Very attractive, only one minus. When I was there they were running awfully low on the breakfast bar choices.

Listen, I've stayed at dozens of HIE, but this is the first that had a mascot dog, served free drinks and light dinner, and had a fire-pit with plenty of chairs out back. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday a basic but free dinner and complementary beer & wine is quite nice.
Easy freeway access. Beautiful flowering trees line the road and hotel and the area is very nice. The rooms are clean, with all the typical amenities, friendly staff.
Only awkward moment was the staff in the restaurant in the evening was over active hustling for votes in some sort of contest they must be holding for workers.
Stay here, you'll be happy. Bring your own pillow.
