“Exactly what I envisioned”
Reviewed July 10, 2010

My young daughter and I stayed here during the PGA golf event in the Quad Cities. Location was important to us, and this was almost perfect. There is a nice playground, fountain to play in, and biking/running trail along the river 2 blocks from the hotel. There is also a good brewpub about 3 blocks away. Parking was no problem. Our room was quiet and decent (good size, reasonably clean). You have to understand in advance that this is not going to be an upscale, tightly run hotel, but it is decent. There were some dirty spots in the lobby, a check-in computer crashed, and we received a bill under our door even though we had booked through priceline, but no big deal. Wifi is free (thanks Holiday Inn!). The pool was okay and the fitness center looked very extensive (treadmills, weights, punching bag, etc.) The shower head was low and the sink faucet leaked badly all over the floor when you turned it on cold. The staff was very friendly and helpful. To us, the location was the thing. We could walk to restaurants and live outdoor music events in the evening. Overall this was a quiet, comfortable hotel.

Received a good Hotwire rate for a last minute overnight on the Fourth of July. We planned to be at the casinos and dining out, so we weren't too worried about the room. Beds were a little too soft for us and the hotel overall had a dated feeling and a fusty odor. Bathroom didnt have an exhaust fan for venting steam during showers, which added to the musty fusty odor. Room windows opened slightly though and with fresh air and AC alternating, and maybe getting used to the surroundings, the situation improved. Free ample parking on the holiday weekend. The nearby brewpub was closed on Sundays which would have been a walkable destination, and only one other bar in the area was open to walk to. Not that we are booze hounds, just that we had left the kids at home and could have some adult time out. The coffee shop across the street, Theo's, was outstanding for breakfast, lingering over coffee and bagels, very nice staff and a highlight of the stay in Rock Island.
When staying in the Quad Cities, we usually stay at the Radisson on John Deere Commons. ... we will probably go back there next time and not choose this Holiday Inn.

Located in the “District” of downtown Rock Island, IL, the property has seen better days, years ago – upgrades can only do so much. However, the age of the property should not discourage folks from staying at the property.

Why?
- As any good realtor would state, three words describe the real estate market, “location, location, location.” Located in the heart of downtown Rock Island, the “District” is making a revival – many bars (to include the Blue Cat Pub, Rock Island Brewery) and restaurants are within walking distance. If you need to drive to the arsenal, it is a short five minute drive! Running/jogging is a joy – use the bike path paralleling the Mississippi River or run across the river to Iowa (Davenport) to explore the area.
- Gym – the gym on site is abysmal consisting of a treadmill, elliptical machine, and bike, and pool…however, attached, via the pool entrance is a complete commercial gym. Enter the gym by walking through the door with the awning and go to the front desk to sign in – just give them your room number and sign in. The gym has an aerobics room (elliptical machines, bikes, and treadmills), two weight rooms (1) dumbbells (5-110 lbs), machines, (2) barbells (complete with benches, squat racks, etc., room to do aerobics, etc. Needless to say, a full gym to work out is always a plus!
- Hilton calls it Manager’s Receptions – Holiday Inn calls it Priority Club reception, where domestic bier, wines, and a few snacks are provided. Do not imbibe too much because you will not be able to enjoy the bountiful of tasteful brews available at several of the local microbreweries. You receive a $5 voucher for breakfast to use at the Bennigans attached to the property . If not at Bennigans, there are two diners across the street.
- Staff is professional and friendly, very knowlegeable of the local area, cuisine, and attractions.

Others have already mentioned it, but…parking is limited. Thus, you may have to park on the street – not an issue if you have to leave before 0800. Signs on the street state two hours between 0800-1800; probably get ticketed if you stay too long. No refrigerator, iron, or microwave – not too big of an issue.

Definitely worth staying if staying in the area.

Surprisingly nice hotel in downtown Rock Island, very nice room with great view of the Mississippi River, reasonably priced, a few decent restaurants within walking distance. Definitely recommend this hotel to others.

We stayed in this property for one night and found the rooms and service very good. The only complaint was that we could hear the adjoining room's conversation very clearly even though they were talking in normal voices.

Nice location. However, the hotel did not issue a parking spot for hotel guests. I can not find any parking at anytime. Since it locates in the entertainment district, anyone can just park at the hotel "FREE parking". Therefore, the real hotel guests have no place to park! esp. fri&sat night. No complimentary breakfast like the other hotels in Quad cities, no iron (only the board), Gym equipments are only treadmill(NO weight, not even a dumbbell), Business center is available, but you can't open some files that require Flash. Room service and the on site restaurant is not 24/7 and I found it's closing too early for the location.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Holiday Inn in Rock Island and it will not be my last. I frequent the QC from Southern California once or twice a year and this is the best hotel I've found in terms of convenience, staff friendliness and overall value. The hotel is older, but it translates more into charm than age. The hotel is very clean and pool is very nice. The restaurant (Bennigan's) is the only downside. It's average at best, but there is an EXCELLENT coffee shop across the street named Theo's. I would highly recommend this hotel to any business or leisure traveler!
