As I start all reviews, please take a look and see how many hotels I've reviewed, I'm not a jaded one time traveler. I travel often and feel I have a good base to write a good overall review. I won this hotel on hotwire and can say that it was a disappointment when you think you're getting a 3 star hotel and you get a 2. but I can't fault the hotel for hotwires poor rating system.
This hotel is very central if you plan on taking in the outlet mall or Frankenmuth. If you have business in Saginaw it is a bit of a drive.
The hotel appears to have been built in the late 90's or early 2000's. The interior now has a tired look and is in need of a renovation. The design of the building is almost funny as to where the elevators are located. Very poorly marked.
All the furniture, carpet and walls are in fair condition. The room was clean as were all public areas. My door did not feel very secure and the for some reason the bathroom door needs to always remain closed due to where they installed the heat lamp?
The room has a fridge and micro as well as a flat screen. Which is very nice to have.
Parking was not an issue but the lighting out there was not the best.
The workout room was lacking to say the least. This is an area of disappointment. It was small and equipment was not in good condition.
The morning breakfast is good, I think this is one area Holiday Inn Express hits the nail on the head. Lots of very good food but as with most "free buffet" style please go crazy and act as if they are starving.
The staff were very warm and friendly. In the end would I stay here again? No. There are many other hotels that are higher quality for the same price. Thinking I was getting a 3 star and getting this, I was disappointed but this is a solid 2 star perhaps a 2.5 if you're looking to take advantage of the pool / spa area. Happy travels Cheers!
