I grew up about half an hour from Valpariso ( everyone I know just calls it Valpo). We were headed to visit family for a baby shower and needed a place to stay. Normally, we stay near LaPorte; but for some reason the hotels there were extremely high for this weekend. My boyfriend booked our room here instead. It's been a while since I've been to this area, WOW! It has grown immensely. There are all types of shopping and eating establishments within a quick couple of minutes drive from the hotel.

As far as the hotel here are my pros and cons:

Pros- Check in was fast, and friendly service. Our room was really big and spacious. The free breakfast was excellent. Good pillows.

Cons- We had noisy neighbors and they talked loud most of the night and we could hear their conversation. I heard a lot of "road noise" with the highway being so close. Our mattress was very firm (just slightly uncomfortable).

The free breakfast is great! Cereals (hot and cold), yogurt, fruit, bagels/cream cheese, hot items (eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, cinnamon roles, and a cool machine that made you a fresh pancake with the press of a button! The usual fruit juices and coffee. The lady staffing the food area was really friendly and helpful as well.

We didn't get a chance to visit the pool/spa area, even though we planned to try to use it.

Our room (333) was a handicap room, not an issue for us, just wanted to pass along that info.

There were several college teams that stayed there while we were there ( the hotel is minutes from Valparaiso University), but overall the hotel was very quiet.

Would stay here again, may even take the place of our usual hotel when we got visit family.

Room Tip: 333 is a handicap accessible room

This was a nice visit. This Holiday Inn Express is well kept. The desk person checked us in efficiently. He was quite pleasant. The room was average. The breakfast was well prepared (as these places go ). I would stay there again.

This is an extrememly clean and well located property. The staff was friendly, knowledgble and cheerly helpful with every need. No problem with an early check in or late check out to meet my family scheduling needs. Great place to stay, I will stay there again when in the area and strongly recommend to family and friends.

Our stay was good, nice location and quiet.
Rooms were average for Holiday Inn Express, wasn't any local pubs within walking distance.
Pillows were good, mattress was a bit slim.
We didn't swim, but would have been nice to relax on the patio have enjoy a drink.
