Holiday Inn Rockford (I-90 Exit 63)
Ranked #11 of 24 Hotels in Rockford
Reviewed 27 January 2014

The only problem I had with this hotel was the heater making clicking noises all night. When we first arrived the room was very hot, we tried turning it down to 60 (heat) but it still felt like 80 so we ended up just turning the air on. I don't know if I would stay again for this reason hopefully it was just our room.
Otherwise, the room was very quiet (we stayed on 1st floor towards the middle).
Room was spacious (had 2 queens, which were more like fulls) plenty room for all our luggage and room for our dogs kennel.
They only allow pets on the first 3 floors.
The shower is amazing, better than my own at home. The water pressure is outstanding and has an oversized shower head. The beds were very comfortable for one night. They had a variety of pillows. A larger fridge than most places mini fridges.
They have room service but I can't attest to that.
Overall it was a good stay very restful.

Ten or fifteen years ago this was the place to go. But with today's competition there are some better choices for the price. The rooms are comfortable enough and were clean. But the bathroom doors were repainted to many times and were chipped and warped at the bottom. Bathrooms are tiny but with great shower heads and very clean. The pool and hot tub were worn looking, stained, looked green and had that strong musty odor. The ventilator fan motor was noisy with a worn rattle sound with it. The elevators were repainted to many times and were kinda rickety. Food trays were left in the hall ways the whole time we stayed there. Carpeting was outdated and looked almost tacky with the wall colors. I liked the desk staff, hotel lay out, the price, clean and comfortable room and the location. This hotel has a lot of potential if a good renovation were to be done. It just kinda reminds me of a nice hotel my wife and I would have stayed at on our honeymoon 24 years ago. Problem is the hotel feels like 1990. Its a good safe and quiet place to stay with a family but just expect wear, age and some odors.

Room Tip: With the layout of this hotel I think any room should be fine. I prefer at least the second floor as...

Check in went smoothly but only one elevator was working and we were on the 7th floor which was a pain waiting 5 min Everytime we needed to use the elevator. Room was clean and nice however all my 6 and 8 year old care about is the pool, and there were some pretty unsavory characters in the pool area and most of them were drinking beer which I do not like around my little girls so I don't think we will return.

Dear meaj4,

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments online. I am happy that you found our rooms to be clean and nice. However, it is regrettable to know that your visit was not 100% satisfactory due to the elevator wait time and unusual incident at the pool facility. We have noted your concerns and we will use your comments to improve what we can offer.

Again, we appreciate your review and our sincerest apologies for the shortcomings.

Sincerely,

Pros: Comfy bed, (Bed Bug-Free), adequate size of room, quiet, very nice lady at check-in (Kristen), pet friendly as of 11/13, pretty clean.
Cons: A few hairs at foot of bed and in bathroom on floor and shower curtain, smoke from others' rooms trickles down in to the bathroom stinking up the room. Would be better if the place were smoke free.

It was a quiet enough place to stay but the property could really use an upgrade. Many of the room items appeared to be very dated.
The breakfast doesn't start to serve until 6am, a little to late for a business traveler.
The restaurant stops serving food at 10pm, a little to early in my opinion.
I think I'll try the Holiday Inn Express next time i'm in Rockford.

I paid for 2 rooms side by side from each other since i was traveling with my wife and 3 kids.Two of them being teenagers and both rooms were clean and comfortable. Customer service was excellent and friendly. We were checked in quickly and off to our rooms. Me and my family will definitely stay there again.

Ended up here because a couple of nearby hotels were full, but this property was fine. Clean room, competent staff, comfortable beds, this is a decent hotel for a quick overnight stay. We got in late so I can't offer advice on the restaurant or onsite amenities, but our room was nice.
