After researching the Bad Axe area, I settled on this hotel to stay at for a reunion week-end. Very happy that I did. The front desk staff was very accomodating and the room was clean, up to date, and comfortable. There is a better than average selection for breakfast. Direct TV and wifi was ok.

If you find yourself in Bad Axe, this is about the only chain hotel around. The gentleman at the front desk when we checked in was very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. We were on the second floor above the patio area. They have music playing over a speaker system from about 7 AM - midnight. The constant... More

This really is the best place to stay in Bad Axe. The rooms are clean and has all the standard Holiday Inn Express amenities. Direct TV is the satellite provider and the wifi is about as you can expect in the Thumb. The ladies that work the breakfast bar in the morning were very helpful while the wife was working... More

Didn't have the opportunity to use the hot tub and pool but they looked nice. Would make a great weekend stay if you are looking for an different area... More

The bed was comfortable and pillows were perfect, but there was loud and constant noise in the room, both a high pitch buzzing and a rumbling. It was awful. Neither of us slept well. The pool and fitness center were nice. Breakfast was disgusting. I was invited to join the "rewards club" or whatever and then bothered in my room... More

The Holiday Inn Express in Bad Axe staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We received several helpful pointers for the area at check in, with a very nice greeting and welcome bag with bottled water and popcorn for the family. The staff went out of their way to show us to our room. The hotel and staff were well prepared... More

I am not sure where to begin but I will say that I am an employee of IHG. As an employee we get discounted rates when we stay at other IHG properties. I feel my overall stay was horrible. I'm not sure if I was treated this way because of my rate or if this is truly how they conduct... More
