“Return visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We stayed here in April and returned for another visit in early July. This time we had two grandchildren. As others have mentioned and we agree, the staff is very accommodating. The standard HIE breakfast had a couple of new items (improved oatmeal and pancakes). While we wish it was a little less pricey, we like being able to count on a clean, safe and quite place to stay. We found several non- fast food restaurants a short drive away.

I often stay at this hotel in Watertown,Wisconsin. It is the best option but wish it had better restaurants within walking distance. What they do have are very average. They serve fresh cookies and staff does a nice job. The breakfast is standard Holiday Inn stuff and I am not a fan of the fake eggs. Wish they could get nice scrambled eggs. Other than that, good stay again.

We stayed here while celebrating a graduation. Several family members stayed here with us. The front desk staff was very accommodating. . .in fact, we asked to check in early and we were immediately given a room. The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet. We held the graduation reception in one of their meeting rooms and the staff did everything they could to make sure we had what we needed. The breakfast was great both days . . biscuits and gravy, cereal, fruit, toast, bagels, pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, etc. Pretty extensive. The first night we were there was pretty exciting. . the fire alarm went off about 4 A.M.! The staff handled it well, the police and fire truck arrived, checked it out and let us back in. We had a great time with our family here and we would stay here again!

Room Tip: If you want something special, just ask. They were very accommodating.

The room is on the expensive side but we were very happy with it. Comfy bed, clean room. We would have liked a thermostat to make it a bit colder. Breakfast was excellent! Overall a great hotel, just a bit more money than we are used to spending.

Being an IHG loyalist, I was happy to find Holiday Inn Express at Watertown WI. There are just three hotels in the town and finding an IHG was a delight. The stay experience was great as well. Stayed for two weeks during the chilly January weather. Free and ample parking space was a delight too. Breakfast was the standard Holiday Inn Express breakfast you would find elsewhere. Staff was great, especially Selina, John and Cheryl at the front desk, they went out of the way to help me in every way possible. Selina personally made sure a couple of my packages went out through UPS, this was much appreciated!
Adding a bar to the hotel would be an added advantage, given the town doesn't offer much I would prefer to grab a drink at the hotel itself!

Room Tip: A room facing the main street would be have a better view. A room facing the airport would be quiete...

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!
