“One of the BEST!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is without a doubt one of the best Holiday Inn's I have stayed at. Yes the rooms were very large, the hotel was very clean, and breakfast was always ready and waiting every morning. However, what made this hotel better than the rest was it’s extra amenities and extremely helpful staff. This Holiday Inn had things like the manager’s happy hour from 4pm to 7pm Tuesday -Thursday and had an extensive DVD rental library. I have never experienced this while staying at another Holiday Inn. Furthermore, the staff was beyond helpful. Gary went out of his way to make sure my team and I were always taken care of. If we ever find our way back in the Vancouver Area they will definitely get our business again.

We stopped in with no reservations and were immediately impressed. The desk staff was very friendly, checked us in efficiently and had great suggestions for surrounding restaurants - of which there are many. Our room was well appointed, very clean and the breakfast was one of the best we have had in hotels that have a similar offering. Another nice touch - they have a managers reception in the evening for all guests.
I would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights in a double queen suite room. We're a family of four and had ample space in our room. The beds were comfortable, neither too firm or too soft. The hotel is quiet and nicely decorated. The front desk representatives are very customer oriented and really try hard to please the guests. The bathroom was a good size and was well supplied with shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and mouthwash. The shower has an adjustable shower head. There is a heated indoor pool that the kids had a lot of fun swimming in. Breakfast is included with the room and is constantly being refilled. It consists of juices, milk, coffee, hot chocolate, yogurt, cooked eggs, hard boiled eggs, cereal, pancakes, an assortment of breads and fresh fruit. The only problem with the hotel is that the outside noise invades the room. We had a room that faced the street, instead of the highway, but the trucks going by literally shook the room. However, otherwise we were very pleased with our stay.

The front desk gentleman did everything perfectly; we were very pleased with his service. The hotel seemed new and it was nice. The room was large and clean. The bed appeared to be a pillowtop - soft (which I like) but not too soft for my partner who prefers a firm bed. I was very happy with the comfort level of the bed. We were very satisfied with the breakfast - it was as good as any other HIX I've been to, and I've always been satisfied with their breakfasts.

There are a couple of things that weren't a big deal to us but might not work for everybody. 1. My partner felt that the walls of the hotel were too thin; I was wearing earplugs so I didn't notice thin walls. 2. Some hotels have the option of programming the fan to run all night, which I prefer; this hotel doesn't have that option, so the fan kicked on and off all night long, which tends to wake me up (this isn't a deal breaker for me, though).

I definitely recommend staying at the Holiday Inn Express. It's close enough to Portland and far enough that it gave me a home away from home experience. I loved how it was just minutes away from Downtown Portland, yet peaceful without all the hustle and bustle noises of the city. The location is just off of i5 and my drive to Portland for business was easy in the am and the evening.

The breakfast was a nice little surprise. With their selection of coffee, tea to pastries and fruit- it was just what I needed as I was running out to my business meeting. Their wi-fi is fast and they have a great selection of TV channels. I look forward to staying here again for my next business meeting.

**HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Room Tip: Get the 4th Floor ;)

Dear Kirklandtravel:

On behalf of our hotel staff, I am writing to let you know how delighted we were
to receive your kind words and praise during your recent business stay with us.

Given the very nature of the hotel business day or night, great service depends upon people willing to give their very best at all times. That's why it's truly rewarding when a guest recognizes our staff’s efforts, and takes the time to say thank you.

We accommodate many guests each evening all with unique tastes and expectations, and we strive to make their night's stay a satisfying one. The principal goal of our hotel is to provide exceptional service to all of our guests at reasonable prices. But, it's only through your eyes that we can accurately assess the quality of the accommodations and services we provided.

Again, let me thank you for your kind words. We're committed to total guest satisfaction, and we look forward to your next visit.

Sincerely,
