We booked to be close to ND...kind of a sketchy neighbourhood. Rooms were good, but a little musty smelling. Beds were comfy. Breakfast was typical...OJ was terrible! Tasted like it was watered down tang. Staff pleasant enough. Nothing remarkable, that I would have to go back. Probably will try the Hampton Inn next time.

IHG's website did not properly disclose the rate restriction and charged a non-refundable deposit equal to the two-night minimum rate about a month before I stayed. I spoke wth the GM to question the charge and he was very polite, but still charged it. Other than that the location was very convenient to campus. Breakfast buffet was very good Friday... More

Traveling thru indiana. Middle of the night with no reservation. Found this hotel and was glad they had rooms. Just expected the "norm" for Holiday Inn, but was pleasantly surprised. Ultra modern room. Very spacious and comfortable and clean! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone to stay here. Very Good Job!

It was noisy, but we travel with a box fan, so we managed to sleep. The hotel is decorated in a sparse, modern look, but was appealing. The breakfast was good and the staff was friendly. They were not very helpful about local attractions because they didn't know the area.

The room was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed for a restful visit. The mattresses were very comfortable and it was quiet. The hot breakfast in the morning was good. It's very conveniently located just off I-80.

As a family with 2 teenagers and a 10 yr old it is hard to find a hotel that can accommodate all of us comfortably. This Holiday Inn was perfect. There was a separate room (with a door) with a king bed for my husband and I, and then another king bed and a sleeper sofa for our three kids.... More

I stayed here on July 18th. I was visiting family in the area. Everyone was nice. Everything you need is in the area. There is a gas station next door. That is good if you need anything. Even filling up your car. The room was very clean.
