“Ironman staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

I've stayed in a LOT of HI Express locations and this wins for best staff! Even though it was Ironman weekend and absolutely crazy, every staff member took time to greet us genuinely. That was much appreciated considering the extra high cost for an event weekend. I suspect that the staff gains zilch from the price gauging so I applaud them even more. Rooms and other areas were kept clean and the grounds were lovely. We didn't take any of our meals there but it was set up nicely and smelled great!
Great location for heading in any direction. The beds and pillows were comfy, the room was quiet. It may be ready for updating but as long as it's clean, comfy and smells fresh, I'm happy!

Lou H,
Thank you for staying with us this year for the Ironman weekend and for sharing your experience. Our staff takes a lot of pride in the service and amenities we offer and I am glad we were able to attain a top spot for the best staff. It is our mission to 'Impress Guests' and it is a pleasure to hear that we have fulfilled that for you! We also love to hear how clean you found our hotel, but if you have any specific ideas of updates you would like to see, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. Thanks again for your feedback and we look forward to seeing you here again for Ironman 2015, if not sooner!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

This was booked as an overnight stop and when we checked in we were told we had been upgraded to a larger room (not that we needed a larger room there being only two of us). The room had the usual two huge beds and a generous en-suite plus a sitting area in-between. This meant the sitting area was dark and not very inviting. There was a fridge, microwave and the usual facilities - all ok and clean.
We left the hotel and drove into Coeur D'Alene for a wander around and to eat dinner, returning early evening.
We decided to sit outside on the terrace in the evening sun with a coffee (no bar or restaurant at this hotel). We had only been sat down for 10mins or so when the terrace was overun by hundreds of noisy teenagers eating pizzas provided by their guardians. We left to try and find somewhere quiet to relax but it was impossible. Everywhere was overun by noisy teenagers. They were running along the corridors, in the dining room, lobby, pool - everywhere. We were told that there was a music festival on in town and the hotel had booked 70% of its rooms to the teenagers and guardians.
I asked to be moved to a quieter part of the hotel but was told that there wasn't a quieter part of the hotel and the teenagers were spread around the hotel - why? Why couldn't they be booked in a block together or other guests to occupy, say only the top floor. We retired to our room at about 9pm thinking it might be quiet - not so.
Outside our room was an ice machine, a soda machine and a snack machine resulting dozens or noisy teenagers congregating outside all the time.
To be fair to the hotel they did say that there was a curfew at 10pm when all teenagers must be in their rooms and quiet and we were relieved that this was adhered to after a reminder by a guardian.
We decided that an early start for breakfast would probably beat the huge queues to the coffee and snack food areas we had seen the night before, again - not so. At 6:30am there were hundreds of teenagers in the dining room, no tables free even if you could have got some food. It was an hour before we could get a table, which we had to clear ourselves to be able to use it.
The breakfast was basic but filled a corner.
I have to stress that the teenagers had to stay somewhere and they were only doing what teenagers do - this was a management failure to recognise that there was a problem to its other guests. We were not the only guests to have a problem.
On checking out we complained to the reception that if they had told our travel agent that 70% of the hotel was booked by teenagers we would probably have booked elsewhere. To us this was a failure of the management and we will seriously consider wether to book cheaper hotels in future that we consider might be frequented by people looking for a basic overnight accommodation.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms when 70% of the hotel is filled with noisy teenagers spread around the hotel

Sedgtrav1,
Thank you for your candid feedback. I do apologize that you were not able to enjoy our hotel to the fullest extent.
We did have a group book almost all of our hotel rooms and I apologize that we were not able to assign you a room away from the group; but it was a true statement that this group had booked rooms on each floor and each hallway due to their size and room type selections. Every possible accommodation was made to pick the best rooms possible for guests not associated with the group, including generously offering many complimentary upgrades. I understand your concern in attaining this information in advance, but in our efforts of protecting privacy, sharing information about other guests with potential reservations is not something we do. What we do enforce with our groups is a code of conduct, including a quiet time or 'curfew' that, as you mentioned, we were able to follow through with.
Please contact me directly to further discuss your concerns and what we can do to invite you back to Coeur d'Alene.

Wow, I can't say enough things about this place. The rooms were extremely comfortable, breakfast and free dinners were excellent, but the staff is what made this such a wonderful place to stay.
We traveled there for my father's 90th birthday, who lives down the street. On the morning of his birthday I brought him for the breakfast, and the staff came out with balloons and a cinnamon roll with a candle, way beyond the call of duty, and he wasn't even a guest there.

Judy at the front desk found for us a fishing guide and charter boat to take him fishing on their beautiful lake.
And Laura in Housekeeping made my brand new blouse spot free after I spilled coffee on it.
Lovely fire pit area for relaxing, and sparkling pool.

Everyone who works there is very warm and professional, so glad we chose this place to stay!

Room Tip: Forget everyone else, this is the place!

We Have stayed in many HI Express locations, and this property is at the top of the list for the chain. Front desk customer service was first rate as were all the staff that we had interaction with. The location adjacent to I-90, makes access very convenient. Ideally located near downtown makes this a great place to stay. Very clean, nice linens and comfy beds, couldn't ask for much more. After a long days ride in the jitney, this is a great place to stay in Coeur d'Alene.

Room Tip: As always we prefer the top floor because of noise. We were on the back side and didn't notice...

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!
