This hotel is just inside of town. Expensive rates for a Holiday Inn Express. Very overpriced for this location. Short staffed, worn out carpeting in room, and in need of a remodel. Didn't stay for breakfast, so I can't comment on that.

I have stayed at many Holiday Inns during my traveling career. I have never been disappointed until I stayed here in Watertown at Holiday Inn express. This hotel needs some serious upgrades. It is old. In addition, staff at night were far from pleasant when we checked in. I believe I would stay away from this hotel until they decide... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights this past weekend. We were very pleased with the room-clean & comfortable. The breakfast was very good-I liked the biscuits & gravy, & the coffee was excellent. I complimented the lady who was attending to the breakfast area that the provisions were better than some higher-priced places I've stayed at. Pool is... More

We found the service to be friendly and the breakfast to be about what you would expect. It's kind of nice that they have a "to go" bag for fruit and yogurt to take back to the room. While our room was clean, the property is really starting to show its age - cracked grout in bathroom, scratched wallpaper, mismatched... More

We had some family business in this area, so when shopping for a hotel, this was the only name that I recognized. We arrived about 11pm and stayed 3 nights. There was plenty of parking available. The front desk folks were kind and friendly. It was easy to check in. Our room had a kingsize bed and the room was... More

So proud of my hometown hotel. I was home to attend a funeral. The staff were professional and very kind. Softest pool towels ever. Quiet room. Awesome pillows. Fantastic breakfast. Room smelled clean and fresh. Watertown is great and having a nice place to stay makes it even better.

Its an older hotel but in good condition, just kind of dated, long dark hallways, old carpet, etc. It is clean though and fairly quiet (uncaring parents letting their rowdy kids run up and down the long hallway at 10pm was not the hotels fault). There is fast food and shopping nearby. Did not use the pool/hot tub/exercise area but... More
