The hotel is a very nice hotel, the rooms and suites are very nice and well furnished. They had a tv in the bathroom, haha i thought that was clever! Very nice breakfast! However the price was very high even during the week, but you get what you pay for.. Would stay again!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for one night. The weather had been very hot and muggy. The room felt damp from the time we checked in until we left the next morning, even after turning the air to a low temp. We went swimming later in the evening and had the pool mostly to ourselves. The water temp was very nice! The breakfast was ok. There was a wide variety of food, but it wasn't that good. They had a pancake machine there. We had never seen that before and it was fun to try.

We were en route to a family wedding, and this was where we got tired and wanted to stop driving.for the night. It was dumb luck, but a great choice!

The room was large, the bathroom TV was a first, the breakfast was tasty, and the staff were very friendly.

Room Tip: We got a room on the end, which is even larger than usual. We could have waltzed around if we had wa...

I have stayed at this HIE in the past for work, and it did not disappoint this time either. The rooms are clean and spacious with a microwave and refrigerator, and there is a television in the bath. If all HIE were like this place, I would stay at no other chain. Plus there is a Green Mill Restaurant right across the parking lot, and it's very good also. When you're in Winona, do yourself a favor and stay at this hotel. You will NOT be disappointed!

This was a great motel. Very clean and comfortable. The only thing we were not happy with was the a/c. It was cooler the first night we stayed, but since the room had been shut all day, it was still warm and stuffy inside the room. The front desk explained that the a/c units were "eco-friendly" and that when the outside temp drops below 55 degrees, the air conditioning will not come on and you have to switch it from a/c to just fan. OK, but if the temp drops outside in the middle of the night, the a/c stops and unless you get up in the middle of the night to switch to the fan function. We stayed 3 nights and I got up in the middle of each night to try and figure out what I needed to do to cool off the room. We were never comfortable all night any of the nights we were there.
Everything else, breakfast, pool, employees were all great. I would only recommend this motel though during the fall or winter because of the a/c issues.

Room Tip: There is so much to see and do in this area, it is important to plan before you arrive so you don...

This is probably the newest hotel in Winona. It was built literally across the old Holiday Inn, now called The Plaza. They share the same parking lot. As other reviewers have said, it's new and clean. Not fancy. Kind of what you'd expect from a chain. It has all of the amenities, like a nice pool, internet access, and a free breakfast in the morning (with eggs mind you). The staff is friendly and helpful. The room we had was overlooking the highway access and was a bit noisy when the AC wasn't on. I think the Plaza might be quieter, but I don't know the price difference. Overall, a good place to stay.

I stayed here on a moderately warm (75+) evening. AC seems to be set in such away that I can not cool room temp as low as I would like. 67 is the lowest available, and even that I think may be inaccurate ( to save money?). No "fan on at all times" with AC operating for "white noise". Otherwise, convenient dining close by both restaurants and fast food. Very high price though for this area.

Room Tip: Ask for top (4th) floor facing "Green Mill" restaurant to minimize road noise and people w...
