Super nice and efficient check in. Room is adequate; beds are in need of replacement--mine had a large dip in the middle of it. The handicap bathroom is spacious but the tub is so tall that I can't imagine a handicapped person being able to get into it. Certainly not a wheelchair accessible tub or shower and you would have...

I haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn since I was a kid and we were road tripping to the Dells. The lobby was spacious and comfortable. The hotel and rooms were clean and bright. I thought the Marriott beds were great, honestly, the Holiday Inn beds are just as comfy. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was delicious and and... More

We booked holiday inn express one year in advance because it seemed like a nice hotel for our wedding block. However when we called to confirm the block when we were told to they had lost the room block. They apologized and could only offer 10 rooms opposed to the 20 to 30 and doubled the price to $189.

Dear Drewuofu, I understand your disappointment and assure you that if there was a group contract or reservation confirmation numbers, we would honor that commitment. Since nothing was actually booked or confirmed, I am unable to displace Guests that have confirmed reservations.

Typical Holiday Inn Express. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, breakfast was very good. Staff was friendly. I did not notice any loud noise for a Friday night. Price was in my range for this type of hotel.Hotel is due for an update this summer and it does need it.
