“Great Comfort with decent value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Stayed at this Holiday Inn for a Wedding in town.

The rooms and building are very clean and well appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable and i was able to sleep very well.

The staff is very helpful and truly cared about our stay.

There is a continental breakfast which contained the normal hot and cold staples (bagels, english muffins, muffins, fruit, eggs, etc). It was refreshed regulary while I was dining due to there being many people eating at the same time.

The location is good as it's not far off the highway but still fairly close to town.

There is a lightly appointed fitness center with a bike, treadmill and weight machine. It sufficed to get a decent workout before the wedding.

There are two restaurants in the same complex as the hotel but for further dining options driving will be required.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the front of the building or make sure you close your curtains. There is a small a...

This was our first stay (one night) at this hotel and we were very pleasantly surprised to find its location convenient, the building and rooms clean and attractive, the staff friendly and helpful, the bed comfortable and the guestroom itself sparkling clean, attractive and well laid out and well supplied. I did not care for the pillows but when traveling by car we always bring our own anyway. The tv was extra good We own/run/live in a 4-room b&b, so comfort and cleanliness are super important to us. We did not use the pool but it appeared to be clean and safe. I also appreciated that the ac unit in our room was not overly noisy! Nice to be able to grab a cup of good coffee or tea and a bagel for the road, too. Thanks, HIE Watertown!

I'm so pleased to be at another one of these hotels. It's clean, neat. The carpet is a bit worn but nothing I can't handle. Modern, clean lines on the furniture albeit a little dated. Still, I care about location and cleanliness and of course service.

I'm two hours late getting in but I was still greeted in a friendly, courteous manner. My room was all in order and ready to go.

Still have to check out the workout room and the pool. Right now, I'm a happy "glamper!"

Nice hotel. Rooms were big, clean, and nicely furnished. Staff was very nice and friendly. Even the housekeeping crew said "Thanks for staying with us" as we left which was nice. The pool was not so nice. The pool area itself is great but the the water was very murky and cloudy. I could not see my own feet as I stood in the shallow end.!? Cloudy and it smelled like a heavy dose of way too much chlorine. My kids eyes hurt and they were wearing goggles. We mentioned it to the front desk and they said the would take a look. We'll see if they do. The whirlpool water was crystal clear but the pool was not. If not for the pool, I would have rated the hotel very good as everything else was great about it.

Staying overnight to work in Watertown, this is convenient and clean. I was greeted as a Priority Club member, but not give the water/snack that others were given as I saw the next day. They do offer cookies to guest, but being gluten-free, I can't partake. The room was clean & comfortable. The breakfast in the morning offered scrambled eggs, bacon, juice, yogurt, coffee, etc. so plenty for all.

We are riding a Harley, so it's nice to have restaurants and shops in walking distance. There is no front portico to park the bike under , in case of rain. The pool was very warm and hot tub was about 102. Sink/vanity was outside of toilet/tub area...nice for 2 people getting ready at same time. Breakfast was the usual but seemed fresher than most. Cute downtown to visit before checking in. Cheaper than Milwaukee, but close enough.
