“Good choice in Flint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Stayed here recently. Good restaurant especially breakfast buffet. You'll be disappointed if you are a big TV fan. There are limited channels. Everything else is reasonable. Lots if airline crews stay here.

This is an older Holiday Inn but the rooms are clean and they do have flat screens in the rooms. The exercise facility is good and has free weights. There is a restaurant on the premises and a few places to walk to. A pretty typical Holiday Inn.

Hotel was arranged by our agent about 15 min drive from where we were doing business. Facility is a courtyard type arrangement and included a restaurant with breakfast buffet, conference and meeting rooms. All services were standard and the price was reasonable. Right across the street is Redwood Grill that gives a discount to hotel guests. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.
My only concern is why guests have to be so loud talking in the hallways so late at night and early in the morning! Please remember there are other people sleeping here too!

Room Tip: Away from elevators and facing outside

Flint MI is not exactly known as a great city, but this hotel is GREAT. I've been here a few times over a span of years. It is a rejuvenated holidome- and that layout does probably seem odd to the patrons who never experienced the holidome back in the day. At my teen aged son's request the manager "upgraded" our room to one right off the pool. My son was delighted (although I know that with the convenience of close proximity to the pool comes noise...). The pool area was very clean. There is a hot tub and pool. The room itself was not really special, but very clean, safe and comfortable. The pool closes up at 10, so the noise from kids having fun in that area ceased by 10. We found the check in process to be very efficient and desk staff were very nice. The lobby are is spacious, but not luxurious. My son and I had breakfast in the hotel resuatrant in the morning. We got vouchers (not sure if it was Priority club status or ??) that triggered the free breakfasts). My son said that it was the best breakfast buffet he'd ever had at a hotel. There are places to eat within a short drive if you don't choose the hotel restaurant. I would stay here again. It is a good value and compared with many other hotels in the Flint region, this is a gem.

Room Tip: Rooms off the pool are fun if you have kids, but expect noise.

My daughter had a last minute softball tournament in Grand Blanc and it was getting very difficult to find a decent hotel under $100. The rest of the team stayed at basically the same hotel for $113, I got ours on Priceline for $65! The hotel looked very nice, very clean, the pool was pretty small- but still nice and served its purpose. The only disappointment was that they did not include breakfast.

I don't understand the layout of this hotel. My room had a window that looked out over an area between the lobby and a restaurant(?). The coffee maker is in the bathroom...No, not the sink outside the bathroom but in the bathroom itself (is that even sanitary?).

The room is cramped and the bathroom door, main door and the adjoining room door all get in the way of one another.

Don't take the stairs to the lobby if you stay here (the door is locked on the first floor - so much for 'getting a little exercise by taking the stairs'). In my home state, that's a fire code violation, maybe not so in MI.

Also, THE HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEM IS VERY LOUD!!!!!!! It sounds like a jet engine is starting in the room and unless you're a really sound sleeper, this is likely to interrupt your sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an EXTERNAL view. Some overlook internal areas.
