I travel to that part of the woods at least 5 or 6 times a year. Sometimes alone for work, and more often now, I’m combining business with some leisure time with my family. I’m making my business trips into mini-vacations for us (plus 2 little ones).
I used to stay at other hotel chains (Country Inn or Marriott) at a more economical price (about $30 USD cheaper), however, I've come to the realization that my happiness and safety during the stay is worth the extra money I'm paying at this fabulous Holiday Inn Express.
Here are a few things about the hotel:
1. Location! Location! Location! Great lakes is right across the street. I love the location. Any free time I have, I’m dashing across the parking lot to shop.
2. The staff - super friendly and accommodating. I was greeted by every single staff I saw throughout my stay.
3. Great breakfast. They have hot food, dairy products…tremendous variety.
4. The rooms are fabulous, clean, quiet, equipped with a fridge and fantastic bathroom. The walls are a little thin. During one of our past stays, we could hear our next door neighbor. HOWEVER, we’ve since then asked for quiet rooms because our kids are extremely light sleepers. They’ve honored that request. I feel that most hotels really just “fit us to the rooms”, instead of fitting the rooms to our needs. This Holiday Inn is different.
5. If you sign up as a priority member, you can check out at 2:00pm instead of 12:00pm.
6. The kids loved the pool.
A couple of things to note…During my last stay, the hotel was fully booked due to an Aerosmith concert in the area. I have to say that my husband and I were extremely worried about the noise level and rowdy guests because we do have young children with us. However, we were pleasantly surprised. By 10:30pm, everything was quiet. We heard very minimal noise from our neighbors and had a great night sleep.
I also want to be honest and say that as a priority club member I have not been offered any upgrades at this hotel so far. While a number of my colleagues have stated that while travelling and staying at other Holiday Inn Express hotels as priority club members they get upgrades to suites on a regular basis.
All and all, this is a great hotel.
