“Holiday Inn Express kendallville ROCKS!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

I repeatedly travel in different areas. The hotel in Kendallville is very nice, but what makes the stay at this location is the Superb Staff!! They welcome you and make you feel as if you are a part of their family. I have stayed here numerous times, and each time I arrive to check in, I am greeted by name, and asked (quite genuinely) how I am doing. The rooms are spacious and very clean. It is a very quiet hotel, and you would never know there are other guests staying on the same floor as yourself.

Our company, Taylor Made Systems, stays here on a frequent basis. The staff is very good and attentive, from the cleaning people, to the desk clerks, to the owners. The breakfast bar is great and the "happy hour" drinks and appetizers are something you do not find at many Expresses. My compliments to the whole staff! It's a perfect place for our people to stay. There are many nice restaurants in the area to go, if you know the area. I believe they have a pretty comprehensive list at the front desk.....some from my suggestions!

I recently stayed here with a group, from out of town but live relatively close to the hotel. The hotel is in a decent location. It is within a minutes drive of a walmart in one direction, and an Applebees, Taco Bell, BK, and a few other stores in the other. You could probably walk to the restaurants but you would have to cross the highway to get to the Walmart. Dowling street was under construction at the time, but the hotel is still easily accessible. This hotel appears to have been refurbished recently and the rooms were clean and modern. The pool is your typical glorified hot tub you find in the HIE hotels. One turnoff about this place is that they have the gold buying shows, so there was a decent amount of traffic in the lobby from time to time however, there was also free food in the loby provided by the buyers. The overall affect of this wasn't huge, but I would not have wanted a first floor room. Overall, this is a decent place, tarnished only buy the vendors they host.

Room Tip: ask to not be on the ground floor

I spent the night on Monday at the Holiday Inn Express in Kendalville. The club is right off of highway #6 and the first one you come to when going into Kendalville from Interstate #69. The hotel is easy to find and there is free parking. The is some construction going on in the area so one has to maneuver around some tight spots.

The hotel is about 15 years old, but it looks like new carpet and furniture has been placed in the room. I stayed at the hotel on Memorial Day, so the hotel was basically empty. However, there were three people at the front desk, one of which was being trained. The hotel says it offers a managers reception, but that basically consist of two free drinks and some dip and chips out on a table. The “free” breakfast” consisted of sausage links and eggs and cold cereal. There was a waffle or pancake maker available.

My room was spacious enough and had enough shelf area in the bathroom for an over night bag. The shower had a pretty good shower head, but the water pressure what not very strong. Mattress and pillows were a little worn and the pillows were made of foam. The room I had faced an open field so it was nice and quiet. The hotel also has a small pool.

The room contacted a flat screen television. However, the listing of channels was outdated. When requested, the front desk sent up a copy of the correct listing of television channels. The room also contained a small fridge, micro-wave and coffee maker. The hotel is not close to any restaurants, so driving will be required. The front desk did provide me with the names and locations of several restaurants in the area. A 10% discount is offered at the Gridiron restaurant if you show your hotel key.

While this may not be the best hotel I have stayed in, it probably is as good as it gets in Kendalville. There are two other hotels, a Best Western and an Econo-lodge. I drove past both and the Best Western looked okay, but I would stay away from the Econo-lodge.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back away from noise

As Dave N stated it's been 4-5 years in row with the Holiday Inn Express in Kendalville.
The rooms are clean and comfortable as well as the rest of the hotel.
The staff was VERY friendly and attentive to our large group especially Ashish Patel (General Manager) and Jerri Tackett (Front Desk Manager) they went above and beyond what any other hotel in the area (Initials BW...) can provide and they (again BW) will NEVER will match what they have at the Holiday Inn Express.
I would like to personally express my gratitude to Ashish and Jerri for everything they did to make our trip seamless and worry free.
We've got pricing from other hotels in the area coupled with the course we play yearly and hands down this is the place we will continue to stay at every year.

Room Tip: I had a room right by the elevator with the Ice machine close by as well but slept like a baby, no n...
