4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Very nice place. Clean and comfortable rooms. Nice bed and sufficient size room. Breakfast was very good. It is a little pricey for a Holiday Inn Express. Although very comfortable and nice it is not comparable to other hotels at the same price.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

During a trip to Fort Atkinson in late June 2014 my wife and I spent two nights in the Holiday Inn Express. We found it to be quite satisfactory—clean room, comfortable bed, good shower. The staff was pleasant and efficient. The small fitness room contained a few treadmill machines and a scale. The nice breakfast included omelets, sausage, a variety of cereals, bananas and apples, bread, and pastries. Although we were happy with the facilities and service, we were a bit put off by the high price relative to other Holiday Inn Expresses in the Southern Wisconsin region (a result, we suspect, of a lack of competition from other decent chain hotels in Ft. Atkinson).

Rooms were okay, nothing special. My issue was the staff and breakfast. To start, the housekeepers were loud throughout the hallways, and don't speak English to even understand you when you tell them something. I told one lady to please keep it down, and she gave me a rude look and didn't even respond. Then, breakfast was ready and it was horrible. The coffee was cold, the eggs were all liquid like they came out of a bag and they just warmed them, the cinnamon rolls were so fake it was not even funny. The only thing I ate without feeling grossed out was the oatmeal and that was because I knew how it was made considering it was still in its original package. Let's just say, if you want to spend 170$ for an okay room and horrible service and food, this is the place for you!

This was my first time staying in the area. The hotel was very nice and clean. We happened to be there when they had a dog show going on in town so, we saw several different breeds of dogs out and about. We stayed 2 nights for business. Thursday morning, the breakfast area was pretty quiet. On Friday morning, we ate a little later (8am) and it was full. There was a tour bus of Seniors staying there that were touring the Wisconsin area. The only complaint I had about my experience was that it was tricky to find the entrance to the hotel. They really need a sign next to where you need to turn. We came from the town instead of the interstate and I would have had to turn around if I hadn't had someone with me that had been there before.

Room Tip: If there is a tour bus scheduled, make sure you get to breakfast early. Otherwise you might not hav...

We were at this Holiday Inn Express for a quick overnight so did not use the pool. Rooms were clean. The beds were triple-sheeted, but the mattress was too hard for me. The breakfast was noticeably better than most and the dining room was a nice size so guests were not crowded and did not have to wait in line to eat.

We rate this hotel highly for several reasons. First, they were happy to accommodate our request for early check in (by 2 hrs) which was extremely helpful with a toddler desperate for a nap. Secondly, the overall hotel and room cleanliness was excellent. It was fresh, clean, and comfortable. Third, they offered a King Suite with a bunk bed in it - how cool. This was complete with a custom-built wall panel around the bunk bed so it was almost like a separate little kid room. Worked great for us. We also appreciated the mini fridge. Fourth, we enjoyed the pool and it was nice that they had lifts so it was accessible to people with a disability. The pool, hot tub, and room itself were nothing amazing in our opinion, but still a great feature. Lastly, the free breakfast rocked. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, the works. We enjoyed our stay very much. Staff was friendly as well.

Room Tip: Ask for early check in - they will likely accommodate

Our overnight stay was pleasant. The room was spacious and there was plenty of bathroom counter space. The bedding was comfortable although we found the pillows to be over-stuffed for our taste. The frontage road leading up to the inn was tricky to find, so we’d suggest better signage from the main road. They serve simple but decent breakfast choices. So overall, we were satisfied and would return.
