The room was average clean. I travel for work and use the iron and ironing boards regularly in hotels. This is not the worst setup I have seen but close. The iron was filthy underneath and I had to figure out a way to clean it. The pad on the very old ironing board was almost a rag. It took... More

Following a major, negative experience with this hotel chain last summer (see Trip Advisor review at Frankenmuth, MI, July 28, 2015), we needed a positive Holiday Inn experience, and Watertown delivered! Everything was in order, as we've come to expect, following years of patronizing Holiday Inn Express. Our reservation was in order, check-in smooth, and the room was comfortable, clean,... More

In Watertown, there are not a lot of hotel options and, during school events, it can be tricky getting a room at a good price. The Holiday Inn Express was a nice value. Room was spacious, had a chair to sit in, wifi was decent, and the room was clean. Having a small refrigerator really helps cut costs when staying... More

The hotel was nice compared to other Holiday Inn's I've stayed at. Our room was in the back so never saw any other part of the hotel. It was very average - what I saw of it - our room was comfortable - but the bottom of the door is raised so you can hear every noise outside in the... More

Stayed one night and there were no bad surprises. Beds were comfortable and had a selection of soft and firm pillows. Room was clean and comfortable with the usual amenities. Breakfast was OK to get the day started, the usual fare for a motel of this price range. Seemed a little overpriced but there was nothing that disgusted me during... More

Our baseball team stayed overnight and had excellent service as we planned an outdoor potluck after our games. It started raining and they let us use a conference room instead of standing out in the rain. They also set aside an area for everyone to watch the Blackhawks game! Breakfast had a lot of yummy choices! Would definitely stay there... More

Quality of sleep was outstanding - great mattresses & pillows. Room well maintained - very clean both room and bath. TV worked fine. Staff is the big plus here - very people friendly and accomodating. Very nice breakfast area - good selection for the mornings. You will enjoy!

From the moment we checked in the front desk person was very unfriendly. She scowled every time we encountered her and never had anything to say that was the slightest bit friendly. She seemed to hover like a disapproving nanny looking for someone who might be doing something "wrong." I had been forewarned about this attitude by someone else who... More

All of the staff was awesome and the food selection for breakfast was very good as well. Pool area was average, but kept clean. There was usually cookies or bananas in the lobby as well. Great location with restaurants all around the hotel.

The hotel itself is very nice, clean with a great staff. The breakfast is top notch. One added note is I had an interview while I was staying here and they allowed me to use their conference room for the interview at no additional charge. They truly went above and beyond for me.
