“Good hotel, Fantastic Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The hotel itself is older, but is clean and well kept. Legends is a great bar and it's nice not to have to drive after having a couple of drinks! I've stayed in many Holiday Inn properties, and this hotel is on par with what you expect from the Holiday Inn name. Location is ridiculously great, it is right smack in the middle of everything in St Cloud.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the first floor, if you can. The elevator is not convenient, you'll find yourself...

Have stayed at many Holiday Inns. This one was by far the nicest. Very friendly and helpful staff, very comfortable bed and all around a very nice place to stay. Could not believe how big the pool area was and a great place for kids. Would most definitely stay here again!! Took advantage of the Sunday Brunch at Legends. Fantastic!!!!

We have stayed at the Holiday Inn MANY times with a large group of people. The kids always have fun with the video games, basketball, volleyball, Face Painting and other activities.
The "Crane" games seem to be easier than at most places (kids are constantly winning)

The pool needs some help. All of the kids got rashes. I think they need to balance more than just the chlorine.

The Suites are nice, good size. The beds are pretty good but not great (I have been on MUCH worse).

Hotel staff accommodated a need for early arrival and make every effort to assist us in last minute Christmas dinner. They gave us room early and situated us near an open area that we could have our large family join us.

Room Tip: poolside , but not atrium.

This was not our first time staying here. We love the large pool and the large area for kids to play. The last time we stayed it was so cold and it was freezing again this time in the pool area so it wasn't a fluke. My husband doesn't think they have heat in that area. You can feel such a temperature difference when you walk from the kids zone to the large pool area. It's such a shame because the pool is so nice; a person should be able to sit out by it without having to wear winter gear. The sauna is awesome!!! The rooms are clean. They gave wrist bands this year to wear in the pool area but nobody had them on. There were large parties and lots of outside people in the pool area who took up all the tables and chairs; very crowded. I think that's what they are trying to eliminate from happening with the arm bands but it's not working. Want to stay again; really hope they get some heat near the pool!! water warmer than air!!!

Room Tip: I would get a room in kid zone instead of pool side next time (pool side is very cold)

One set of sheets in the room was stained with some sort of greyish stain, which for me is just not acceptable at a hotel. The one thing that should be absolutely clean are the sheets. I mean the whole point of being at a hotel is to sleep on the sheets. Other than that flaw the rest of the experience was pretty good. The only other thing was that there are no really quite areas to go in this hotel so if you're looking for a quiet hotel don't go here. Also, you can smell the chlorine from the pools as soon as you step out of your room, which isn't really the hotels fault because whoever built the hotel didn't build anything to enclose the pools so you can always smell it.

I recently stayed at the H.I St. Cloud while on business. I've stayed here several times in the last year. This is a large hotel with many rooms and some long walks to the lobby. Had a bad stay over a year ago in the larger 'Suites' due to the strong smell of bug spray. However, last several stays near the pool in the older part of the hotel has been very good. Rooms are clean, bathrooms - while small, are decent with good showers. Nice TV's with many choices. Not a huge fan of the attached bar but will say the staff is always nice. Breakfast staff is nice as well but their menu is a tad pricier than other full service H.I's. ie "best 4Value Breakfast"

All that said.... there are many lodging choices in St. Cloud and in close proximity to this H.I. At under a $100, I'd consider this H.I a good pick. Pool area (aka Holidome) is large and clean. Location is great with many dining establishments close and even within close proximity.

If you have Kids looking for a nice place to stay, I'd recommend here.

Room Tip: Prefer standard rooms poolside closer to the lobby.
