My son and I stayed here for one night after driving all day from Michigan. This was our first stop on a road trip out west. Check in was easy, uncomplicated and the gentleman who worked the front desk was friendly. Our room was on the first floor and next to the pool. It was a large room with a... More

We stayed one night while traveling. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room had two comfortable Queens and a sofa (but no TV in the sofa area) along with refrig and microwave and a nice clean bathroom. Breakfast had hot items, cinnamon rolls, and the usual cereals, muffins, juice etc. Room was quiet. Great visit as usual.

An older Holiday Inn Express, clean but dated rooms. No restaurant on site but several chain restaurants are close by, within walking distance. Upkeep on the hotel is generally good but during my stay, the single elevator went out. My room on the third floor was very inconvenient without elevator service. I didn't see much concern with fixing the elevator... More

Thanks for your feedback! We're sorry our staff on third floor missed assisting you with your luggage. It's unfortunate we were without an elevator for a few hours; however we tried hard to ensure all guests had the assistance they needed. We're glad you enjoyed the rest of our hotel. We hope to see you next time you are in... More

Stayed here for one night on a road trip. The facility is fairly new and very clean. Night clerk at the front desk was very friendly, professional, and helpful. Room was fairly average sized but comfortable. Sleeper sofa was typical and tolerable. Good, free wifi. Breakfast was standard for the brand. Good sized seating area, clean and well-stocked.

I am very pleased with the spaciousness of our guest room. We were traveling with children and it was wonderful to feel like we had room to spread out without tripping over each other. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean, and the hotel is very conveniently located to shopping & dining options. It was also an easy drive... More

This hotel was excellent from the moment we walked in. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was exactly what was pictured. It was clean and super comfortable. The kids enjoyed that the pool was open late as we were getting off the road late on this leg of our trip. Loved the Keurig in the room!

Clean property. Friendly staff. Indoor pool. Typical free Holiday Inn Express breakfast. Room temperature controlled comfortably by digital thermostat. Bed was very comfortable. Plenty of shopping and dining options in the area, including a couple adjacent to the hotel in easy walking distance. No problem recommending this hotel.

As the title of my review clearly states, I'm outraged at the prices hotels charge during high volume tourist times. I get it. It's business. But you had better roll out the red carpet if you're going to charge the same rate I have paid for much nicer hotels in Chicago! First of all, when I checked in, the young... More
