“Nice Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

The hotel was clean, and I was upgraded to a suite. The room was very comfortable. The fitness room was also very nice. The hotel provided a coupon for the restaurant next door, which turned out to be a nice restaurant.

The only con would be that my non smoking room had been smoked in.

Stayed in a room with two queen beds, the room was the largest non-suite hotel room I've ever stayed in. Room and hotel were clean and fairly modern. WiFi was free and worked well. Breakfast was free, we had biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, turkey sausage, pancakes plus other typical continental breakfast offerings.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

We stayed two nights at this hotel during a very busy weekend. It was comfortable, and we were pleased with the staff's efforts to shuffle rooms on a fully-booked weekend so that we could stay in the same room both nights. The hotel itself is fine--generally clean with an adequate free breakfast. The pool is terribly small, but it is nice that there is also a kiddie pool for those with small children, plus a hot tub and small sauna.

We were disappointed with housekeeping, however. Our room was not serviced until almost 4 p.m., and when the maid did finally come, she very obviously wanted us to say that we didn't need anything from her. She was clearly reluctant to do her work and suggested that we could do without housekeeping. When we made it clear that we DID want housekeeping services, having used all our towels, etc., much earlier in the day, she did service our room. However, it was clearly a quick job, as she didn't check the coffee area, etc., leaving out dirty cups and pot, forgetting to restock the coffee, and also neglecting to restock the water glasses and such in the bathroom.

Also regarding housekeeping in general, there were only 2 small towels left in the pool area when we were there in the afternoon, the edges of carpets are dusty, and breakfast garbage cans were overflowing. Maybe this weekend was just too busy for them to do their usual job.

So overall, an average hotel with below average housekeeping, at least in this case.

Dear olliesmom51,
Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your stay. We were pleased to know that the front desk was accommodating to your needs. However, we were sorry to hear that housekeeping did not meet your expectations. The information was passed on to the housekeeping manager so that we may give better service to you in the future. Thanks again.

Rooms and lobby area were clean and accommodating. This was my first stay in a HIE, and I would definitely consider staying again in the future. More options with the included breakfast than I was expecting, so that was a nice plus.

This hotel is next to the previous Holiday Inn hotel (shared lot). The interior is laid out in a very user friendly manner. Rooms are spacious and include microwaves and some with sitting rooms or separate bedrooms.

The pool area is comfortable and allows for your kids to play in a kid's pool, while the parents sit in the adjacent hot tub. There are also a regular pool and sauna in the same area.

Breakfast is ample and changes slightly each day. The breakfast includes cereals, juices, milk, yogurt, waffles, Various hot items and many more items to choose from.

Room Tip: Up grade to the suite at a nominal cost or use your Holiday Inn upgrade. It will be worth while for...

We have stayed at almost every ghost hotel in Winona and we like this one the best. We had a great room with king for us and side room with 2 twin beds for the kids. $185 for the night. Very spacious. Pool was nice versus Plaza hotel next door which claimed that they have a "indoor water park" but really don't. Breakfast was okay. Plaza does not have a breakfast.

standard Holiday Inn but we were as gold member upgraded to a suite and sorry we were only there for one night! This hotel is in an excellent location for downtown Winona as well as Pikes Peak state park and the river. Excellent restaurant right outside the front door. We were made very welcome here and found the hotel clean and comfortable. This is probably the best place to stay in Winona without a doubt.
