Clean room, decent breakfast. Lots of restaurant options nearby. I work on the Internet and the connection speeds were very slow. Would not recommend for the traveler who requires decent Internet access.

It's a Holiday Inn Express so the rooms are pretty standard to any other Holiday Inn Express. The staff however is very friendly and helpful. There was some sort of tournament and a bunch of children were staying there and kept running up and down the hall. We had to complain about the noise twice. I was reaching for the... More

You know what to expect with HIE. We were not disappointed. It was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. We got a great restaurant recommendation. We would stay here again.

This hotel is nicely located on the main drag near lots of shopping. I was immediately impressed with the size of the rooms. Great sitting area separate from the beds, flat screen TV, large bathroom. The only minor issue would be some mold under the rim of the toilet. Other than that, room was otherwise clean and beds very comfortable.... More

My boyfriend and I were in town for a family wedding when we stayed at this hotel. We found our room to be quite nice as well as the hotel itself. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the breakfast had a good selection. However, the WIFI strength was poor and our room was covered in dust. We also... More

We had a hard time finding a hotel that wasn't completely booked for our fall leaf weekend trip, but somehow this place wasn't sold out. The rooms are nice, ours had a separate living area. The shower was huge and had two shower heads in it. Everything was clean. We grabbed the free breakfast, which had plenty to offer--pancakes, biscuits,... More

WHY DID WE STAY HERE?: We were on a multi-city combined business/fall foliage trip (foliage disappointing). My platinum level partner wanted an IHG property for loyalty points. I looked at Trip Advisor for the Holiday Inn in La Crosse and vetoed staying there because of bad reviews. I had no further input in the decision and we ended up here.... More

I was in town on business for an overnight. The hotel was booked solid, but even full of guests the common areas were clean, including the breakfast area (not a small feat on busy days, I am sure). The room was clean and comfortable. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
