“Very nice”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

Second time staying here. Each time a very pleasant experience. Things are clean, and the breakfast is great (by HI Express standards). Staff very friendly. Check-in / check-out was a breeze. Definitely will stay here again!

the room is a typical hie room. no suprises, the check in was efficient, though the priority club check in sign was hard to find. I got the "welcome" and we see you're a Plantinum member" spiel. the staff was helpful. the breakfast was fair, the flavors of yogurt could be better. I would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in late July. Hotel was clean, staff was friendly, breakfast was good. A criticism would be the very small workout room - hot and stuffy. All in, I would recommend this Hotel for anyone looking in the Dekalb/Sycamore area.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Sycamore June 18-20th, I am a travel agent and had reserved 5 rooms for extended family. There was no confusion at checkin...it was prompt and efficient..they suggested place behind hotel for light lunch Sweet dreams..good suggestion.
Breakfast was excellent, much more extensive than most. I didn't eat the biscuits and gravy but others did. They served scrambled eggs one day omelette another, in addition to cereals, fresh fruit. Cinnamon rolls were a pleasant surprise...warm and oh so good!!! Only downside was fitness center room was warm. Internet access in your room as well as in business center.
Will have clients stay at this property. One person had a service dog and they accepted the pet with proper documentation.

Very good location

I made reservation for this hotel over 9 months in advance and they gave our rooms away the day we arrived. I confirmed and changed my reservations twice less then 4 days before arrival but for some reason they gave our rooms to someone else. The manager was no where to be found and left the whole ordeal to some poor front desk staff. I had to call customer relations and they atleast paid for us to stay at a another hotel. The staff person was rude and could care less and was not helpful at all! I will never stay at a Holiday Day Inn Express again evan though the customer rep said what happened is not their policy! Stay here at your own risk and good luck!

Stayed March 2010

We apologize you feel we gave your rooms away but we require a credit card guarantee and have a 24 hour cancellation policy. If a credit card declines we have the right to cancel the
reservation as their is nothing holding it. We are within our rights to do this and you were fortunate to have someone help you that didnt know the correct procedure. When a credit card declines we do try to contact guest if a phone number is available, In your circumstance we did call and a message was left with the individual that answered.

Stayed here one night for a swim meet just around the corner at the YMCA - can't get any closer. Accomodations were good, clean and staff was friendly. Plenty of restaurants, etc close by and convenient to Dekalb, Sycamore and Aurora too. Value is hard to judge, since we stayed here on Priority Club points. Our only complaint is we had reserved a "King Bed Suite". I think the only difference between a regular room and a suite is about 3 foot longer from door to window and cabinets/sink along the wall in the front. There was no door/partition between the bed and the fold-out couch. We just thought a suite would provide a little more. However, we would gladly stay here again if in the area.
