“Horrible WI-FI”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

This is your typical Holiday Inn Express. Rooms were fine and the staff was friendly. However the WI-FI access was a complete joke here. I was unable to get work completed while staying here. It would take 2-5 minutes for a page to load every time I clicked on something.

Typical Holiday Inn, had all of the amenities advertised, easy Check-In, got the last cookie - they should really place more for the late comers:} One note about the Sand Point Area, we needed to get an early start as we were driving to Cody Wy and we could find nothing open before 6:00am but the grocery store where we purchased coffee and scones to have for breakfast.

We recently went to Sandpoint for a funeral and I made the reservations on the wrong date, the booking agency could not change the date. I called the Hotel and they were more than happy to make the change even at the same price that we booked it for. They have a very friendly staff. and the rooms are large and clean and comfortable. We vote for Billy for employee of the year! He was so awesome and took the effort to greet us when we arrived later in the evening and I loved those fresh baked cookies.

There are options when staying in the Sandpoint area, but we were really impressed with the lodging at the Holiday Inn Express. We had a HUGE room. We requested a king suite, and were surprised to see there were two king beds in two rooms with two bathrooms and a sitting room and kitchen in between. The hotel is clean and quiet, and the linens, sheets and pillows appeared to be brand new. Would recommend this hotel, without a doubt!

Recently, we spent several days in Sandpoint ID and found lodging at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites. Our room was on the 3rd floor and looked out on a beautiful meadow, with a mountain stream running through it all on a background of mountains rising right from our hotel to the local ski area. The hotel is quiet, clean, nice linens, bath room, towels, etc. The bed and pillows were one of the most comfortable that we have encountered. This hotel appears to be quite new. They serve a nice breakfast ... pancakes, sausage, biscuits n gravy, sweet rolls, coffee, juices, etc. There is a nice and relatively new restaurant, "Sweet Lou's" right beside the hotel where we had great "fish and chips" with a beer. We have nothing negative to say about this little gem and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the back of the hotel away from the highway. The views are wonderful.

I've stayed here many times for both business and pleasure, and I'm never let down on the niceness of the rooms (try to get one on the west side facing the mountain) and the friendliness of the staff. In fact, back in 10/12, I was travelling with a relative who had a catastrophic right in the hotel; I'll never forget how extremely helpful and supportive the staff was. It meant a lot to me!

The rooms are very nicely designed and maintained. Beds are comfortable. HVAC is your standard Motel-Type which is a bit noisy and has the typical control box for adjusting your temps and fan speeds.

The complementary breakfast is quite good - done buffet-style and .... just good. The breakfast staff are all part-time and generally excellent personalities.

The TV system is one-star at best. They use DISH or DIRECT - but they get the lowest choice subscription which has an extremely annoying habit of wildly-varying sound background noise and channels that are listed but not available - or available every once in a while.

All that said - I would recommend them over the other hotels in the Sandpoint area - with perhaps the exception of the Sweitzer Mountain Lodge (which I have not stayed at) or the B&B's in the area. The desk and management are friendly and helpful. The prices are a bit high but the hotel, being relatively new, is the best choice.

Room Tip: Try for the rooms on the West side. They have serene views of a farm and the mountains, and are sig...
