“Loved It!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This was a very nice and clean place. I was very comfortable and relaxed. I would totally recommend!!! They had a continental breakfast in the morning that was very good also. I most likely would return.

This hotel is unsafe and is misrepresented online. Unsavory characters congregate in the parking lot at night as well as sit in the lobby all day. Rooms are outdated, not as seen in pictures. I had booked a 6 night stay for my mother and I . We checked out after first night and holiday inn Express REFUSED to reimburse us. We were scared to stay there! Under the same circumstances I would do the same again. Got a room at the holiday inn express in Grand Blanc. Great, safe and clean.

I stayed here along with my bridal party this weekend. I was getting married at Crossroads Village so my bridal party and I stayed the night before as well as the night of and I cannot say enough great things about this place!!! They gave us a great rate and the rooms were amazing! I was upgraded to a jacuzzi suite for both nights and the room was awesome. Very clean and nice. They even called me the morning of check in to let me know that they had my room ready early for me so I could get checked in and not have to worry about waiting around until the normal 3pm check in. They provided their airport shuttle to take us to and from the venue on Saturday and were so friendly that even I was a little surprised. One of the girls checked into her room and it smelled like the previous visitors had smoked in there so they immediately got her a new room on the same floor without any hassle or waiting.

Norma that does the breakfast is the BEST! The day of the wedding the hotel was pretty full so she opened up a conference room for the girls and I to be able to have breakfast together and kept checking on us asking if we needed anything else. She literally acted like we were the only ones she was focused on and I loved seeing how she walked up to each guests tables while they were eating to make sure everyone was taken care of. You can tell that she truly loves her job and it shows.

After the wedding the shuttle driver called the front desk to have them open a conference room back up for us so we could continue to socialize and enjoy our night without having to worry about disturbing other hotel guests and they gave us the number to have pizza delivered to the conference room for us.

I highly highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area or having a wedding nearby. Everyone there was so excited to see pictures and hear about the wedding and it was great having such wonderful people taking care of us during our stay. We will surely be back on our next trip in town and love how close it is to everything in the area!

First, I have to say that we were only in town because of a family member's passing and to attend the funeral services. No one actually visits Flint, MI for pleasure, do they? The room was TINY. I booked 2 for our 6 person family. One with 2 Queens and one with a King & Sleeper Sofa. The only reason we went with the Holiday Inn Express was because they are the only hotel within a 10 mile radius of our location that had refrigerators in the room, guaranteed. If not for that, we would have chosen the Comfort Inn which was about 7 miles away or so. Also, I thought they had an indoor pool for some reason which I hoped would be a nice distraction for the kids under the circumstances...wrong, they didn't have one. Anyway, the rooms were tiny, barely any room to walk around in, and definitely uncomfortable with a baby and toddler and all of their toys/gear! We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights and I'm sure housekeeping only came 1 of those days. We also requested a crib when we booked the rooms and when we arrived, they said it (there's only 1 crib for the entire hotel!!!) wasn't available. So the baby slept in the bed with us the entire time. Also, the walls are so thin that the the folks next door to us woke my kids and myself up 3 times in 2 nights having sex so loud I thought they were making a porn video. I actually ran into the guy the second day in the hallway, with my family, so he was aware we had kids in the room and they still went at it the next night. I had to call the front desk the second night at 3 am and they said they'd send security up but that never happened. Look, I'm not against people having sex, but have some respect for your neighbors. And if you know they have kids, do you really want them to hear that? This isn't Motel 6! Moving on...there were no real restaurants in the general area and we had to drive approximately 10-15 minutes to find fast food. I'm not blaming the hotel for this...I'm blaming Flint, MI. Anyway, overall, the price wasn't bad...we paid about $85/night and the breakfast in the morning was the best part of staying there. Sausage, scrambled eggs, pancakes, pastries, fruit, cereal, coffee, juice, the whole shabang. The kids definitely enjoyed that. So, if you're looking for a decent place to stay by yourself or as a couple, and enjoy a free breakfast, this is the place for you. If you're looking to be near shopping and/or restaurants or are staying with small children, this is not the place.

A nice, clean and cheap place to stay. Don't be fooled with their driving service-- they are over worked and VERY SLOW to respond to calls! Close-ish to downtown, but the shuttle service's slowness really negates any continence to be had!

It's an average hotel. We book it ever year for our family reunion in Lapeer or Flint. (Now I hear there's a new Holiday inn in Lapeer) No pool. No bar even close. Not even a gas station or corner store. Vending machines didn't work except for first floor. Nothing has changed since we last stayed here. This is our last year coming to this hotel.

Oh yeah.....Staff was nice except the one girl who wouldn't give me a late checkout for being an IHG member but gave the rest of my fam of 7 rooms a 1 or 2pm check out. I asked before them and after them and I am the only IHG member in the group. But whatever ;)

Our travels to the Upper Michigan began here and was a great experience. The area was chosen to allow a good rest before a marathon 4-day tour, and it was a great choice. We have traveled for years, and the "free breakfast" deals have many times been "vending machine" options. Not so here; the breakfast fare was extensive and well prepared. I cannot recall the name of the hostess, but she was fantastic. There were 53 in our group and we all agreed it was far superior to the menu at the #1 rated hotel in Mackinaw City, MI. The facility was clean and the staff was attentive to our needs. The area around the hotel is limited, but the pizza delivery and "party" in the lobby as we headed home made it a memorable end to a enjoyable week.

Room Tip: As there are no specific sites in the area, any room would be acceptable to me when I visit again.
