My family was very pleased with accomadations; the professionalism and the hospitality. Everyone enjoyed their stay at The Holiday Inn flint, Gateway Centre. The scenery, the pleasantness of the staff. The service was excellent. Whatever, we needed, they made sure that were satisfied. Again thanks for the enjoyable event that was pleasing to my family.

Room Tip: They were very Spacious, and pleasing to the eyes.

I don't understand the layout of this hotel. My room had a window that looked out over an area between the lobby and a restaurant(?). The coffee maker is in the bathroom...No, not the sink outside the bathroom but in the bathroom itself (is that even sanitary?).

The room is cramped and the bathroom door, main door and the adjoining room door all get in the way of one another.

Don't take the stairs to the lobby if you stay here (the door is locked on the first floor - so much for 'getting a little exercise by taking the stairs'). In my home state, that's a fire code violation, maybe not so in MI.

Also, THE HEATING AND COOLING SYSTEM IS VERY LOUD!!!!!!! It sounds like a jet engine is starting in the room and unless you're a really sound sleeper, this is likely to interrupt your sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an EXTERNAL view. Some overlook internal areas.

We enjoy your facility...love the patio off the pool! The rooms are clean, the staff is pleasant, professional and helpful. The free breakfast is awesome...a full breakfast buffet. This will be our third year booking a block of rooms here for our baseball team. Krista, from the marketing team, went the extra mile to quickly get our rooms booked. She was very professional. All contact I have had with all staff over the years has been a pleasant experience...always respectful and pleasant. Great location...great place! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We will be back! Thanks for another great stay. Coming back in June and again in July!

Nasty bloody sheets with stains in 4-5 areas on bedding. Sheets should have been thrown out! Called and asked for clean sheets. They handed them to us at the door. Went to change sheets and mattress was stained and dirty along with comforter. It was disgusting. Hair and sticky spots on bathroom floor. Worst nights sleep ever in a hotel. Spoke with manager and was comped $25.00 off price of room!!!! What a joke. Warning, it will leave your skin crawling.

Our stay was excellent. The staff worked with us well in every way. When we needed equipment, extra chairs, new tables set up, they were on the spot and efficient. The food was excellent. I couldnt recommend them more highly. We will be back again in the future.

Returned to this HI for the third time with a large group of 200+. Everything turned out great. Started with the office folks arranging our visit ... Krista Mayhew is a GREAT contact there ... very helpful. Front desk personnel were very professional. Dominique and Hope were two of the front desk employees I had personal contact with ... some small snafu about a credit card ... they were just awesome. While helping me on separate occasions there were interruptions by those folks that are too important to wait for their turn (we see them everywhere, don't we). Both were very good at handling the situation ... we had a party in one of the banquet rooms on Saturday night ... everything went very well .. the food personnel and bartenders were excellent .. all in all a wonderful experience and we look forward to returning with the group.
