Holiday Inn Express Fort Collins
Ranked #18 of 31 Hotels in Fort Collins
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 29, 2011

This is a sub-standard Holiday Inn Express. We stay at HI Express very frequently (platinum members) and this was the worst experience we have ever had. The service is seriously lacking, the rooms are smaller and less equipped than most (no fridge or microwave), the breakfast selections were even more limited than usual, the hotel did not seem as clean as we have come to expect. Our main complaint was the service.

The rooms were clean and well maintained. The employees were friendly and helpful and there was always someone at the front desk to assist us. The grounds were well maintained.

It's been a long time since I stayed in a Holiday Inn but based on this experience, they'll always be a top consideration. Recently renovated, very clean, and a highly motivated staff of younger managers who were ALWAYS available and smiling. A welcome change from the norm I've experineced from many hotels in the not so distant past. The location is not the best for visiting Old Town, but it's also not bad - given the prices of hotels in that immediate vicinity it more than makes up with the staff, the facilities, and the cleanliness. IHOP and Sanfords Pub and Grill are next door for immediate carbo gratification. The indoor pool was obvioulsy a hit with kids and the mini-gym proved a hit with my wife (me as well, but only once -- I was being lazy). Pretty substantial breakfast included in the price as well. Well done Hollday Inn (and Staff!)

My room was cleaned every day and I did stay 11 days but the sheets were old and pilled so were very rough. Breakfast was lacking on most days. Holday Inn says they have bananas but they were only there 2 days out of 11 and some days there were no bagels or bread and I ate very early.

The hotel is fine, however the lack of service and hospitality is complete. As a hospitality professional I arrived and expected this hotel to be what a holiday inn is, a good quality hotel at a decent rate. The rooms were nice but the staff there are completely unaware of what is good service. The standard answer to most basic questions, eg. asking about the safe was " I don't know, I am new here" this answer I received 3 times and then gave up. Upon return home I found that I have been charged double for my stay, upon calling them from overseas the only answer I have received so far is that they have credited the one amount. So an expensive hotel in comparision to the Hilton which was almost the same rate but the standard and service is what a good hotel should be.
