We stayed here with a group for a tournament. The hotel has recently changed brands to become a Country Inn & Suites. Our room (king suite w/sleeper sofa) was clean and comfortable. Rooms have a mini fridge which is quite handy. Our team planned to have food delivered to the hotel so the players could all eat together. The staff...

Staff is very helpful and pleasant. The hotel is very clean and the breakfast bar is very good. I have been coming to this hotel for years and have always had a pleasant experience. Avoid the hotel when there are hockey tournaments. The problem is not the children but their overbearing whiny parents.

Our family of 4 stayed at this hotel for our sons hockey tournament this past weekend. Definitely do not recommend! The hotel booked the reservation wrong and had our family booked into a room with 1 king bed. Upon arrival we were told there was no rooms even available. Stink bugs found in room, which I now see has been...

We did not charge you for the $5000 damage to our hotel because we have not gotten a bill to fix it yet. We did not disqualify the team even though we had every right to. I did not hide in my office or go home. I was at the hotel all weekend (and not with my family) because of...

While this hotel is in a great location for any level of shopping, Resturant or pub you might be looking for, it is a fairly average HIE. Exterior appearance makes it look a little more "lodge like" but on inside its pretty standard. Shows a little wear and tear. Breakfast was what we've come to expect at most low to...

Usually have a great experience with this brand, this time was not even close. The only good thing about the property was the location to dining. The staff seemed like they just did not want to be there. Not too friendly or engaging. The breakfast was cold, and the eggs, well, that's what they look like, tasted like it was...

We are very sorry that your stay was disappointing. We have addressed the issues you experienced with housekeeping, breakfast and the front desk staff. I have asked maintenance to check the room outlets and make sure that they are secure. Thank you for your feedback

This hotel didn't seem like a holiday inn express to me. I would say that it is in definite need of some updates. It really seemed kind of worn and musty. This is probably the worst holiday inn express I've stayed at.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are a lodge design, unlike most Holiday Inn Expresses. We think it makes us unique although some of our guests like the new style. We went through a renovation in early 2016 and will be doing more renovations soon. We hope to see you again in the future.

Loved our one night stay at the new Holiday Inn. It opened on September 17th which coincidently is the day we we're very fortunate to find a vacancy on a Notre Dame football game after dumping another hotel in the area that was too horrid to stay at. The rooms are lovely. Beds very nice. Big TVs. Nice sized bathrooms...

My wife, dog, and I stayed here on August 19, 2016. Very good. The front desk clerk, Amy, was nice. Ask for a room on the second floor facing the back of the property. If you have a dog, the cemetery next door is a pleasant place to go for a walk. The nearby Martin's supermarket is a great place...

Unlike others that charge a ridiculous pet fee they are very reasonably priced.Nice grassy area behind hotel for pets business. As a bonus next to hotel is a cemetery with asphalt drive great for walking Fido to burn off some of that energy from car riding.Lovely room,comfy bed and great breakfast plus a noon checkout.
