“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2008

Arrived before check in time with no reservations. Booked our room and checked in. found the room in great condition. Had a beautiful harborside view from our room. We came back from a day out and decided to use the in room movie system and found it wouldnt work for our room. Went and let the front desk know and she offered to upgrade us but found there were no more 2 bed rooms left. The lady at the desk then offered to double my rewards points. Went swimming in the 3 ft swimming pool which had lots of kids in it due to a tennis tournament in town. Had a good time. The breakfast bar in the morning offered coffee, cereal and even belgium waffles. a good spread all around. Checked out and headed home.

  • Liked — Nice view and retreat from the city
  • Disliked — Movie system didnt work

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2007

We stayed for two nights at the end of a trip driving from Chicago out to the west and back again. Found no problems here and by now we had been to few of the motel chains.

This is more like a proper hotel and this is reflected in the price. The location is excellent our room was spotless and was constantly aware of staff cleaning etc.

Breakfast is good in the lobby.

We where on the third floor so where lucky to have two lifts to use to access our floor (one just behind the check-in and one just off the car park).

The staff we dealt with were pleasant and helpful.

Would stay again if the occasion arises.

Stayed only 1 night passing through Kenosha.

Did not prebook hotel but chose when we arrived. Loved it's location right by the water in a quiet location but walkable to downtown. Several nice restaurants within a few minutes walk of the hotel.

Hotel corridors a bit dim and dingy looking but room was absolutely fine - very clean and everything you'd expect from a Best Western.

Breakfast was a bit sparse when we arrived in the breakfast room but within 10 minutes everything had been replenished. Selection was limited though - plenty of danishes, bagels and toast but no fresh fruit or yogurts.

Would stay here again if in Kenosha.

Kenosha is only a small town but the waterfront area is lovely and it's well worth taking a tride on the electric train that goes around downtown and out to the waterfront area.

Had some buisness in town, was there with my 10yr old., I picked it because of location and it had a pool. When i checked in there was no conceierge to help with luggage, the floor plan is screwed up. I had to get to the 3rd floor but you had to go from the lobby thru halls and stairs to get to an elevator to take you up to the floor not from the lobby, really bad design. Lots of noise and people hanging around at all hours, no doubt drug activity. Did not feel safe,would not stay there again.

Stayed July 2006

The Kenosha Holiday Inn has a great view of the lake, and is in a quaint area of the city. However, the hotel is pretty dirty, and very noisy. Apparently, half of the room is rented out to college students, as a dorm, so it does have the dorm feeling. The hallway reeked of chlorine and other unknown smells. However, the rooms were adequate.

I went in July of 2003 with high expectations, having stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Gurnee, IL that was wonderful. Our check-in was delayed by over two hours because the rooms were not cleaned. The hallways, rooms - even the parking lot was dirty with trash overflowing the receptacles. People openly smoked in the elevator and in the hallways. The breakfast buffet opened so late that we gave up and found a restaurant. The worst part was when my daughter found adult feces in the pool. The hotel is in a nice location on the waterfront, but I can offer no other positive comments about this facility.
