“Convenient location”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

I have been staying at this hotel monthly for over two years. It's located near Valparaiso University on Route 30. It's also near the intersection with Route 49 which makes the hotel very accessible. There are nice restaurants nearby like Kellsey's and Industrial Revolution which are only a few minutes away. The hotel is basic, it's clean and comfortable but nothing memorable. The free breakfast buffet is pretty standard for the Holliday Inn Express chain which includes cereals, cinnamon rolls, bagels, eggs, sausage or bacon, waffles and yoghurt among other items. Again, nothing fancy but gets the job done. The beds are comfortable and new, the sheets are clean. The tv's are all flatscreen and HD but I have yet to see the HD working. I have never tried the pool but the small gym has two treadmills one of which hasn't been working for the last few months, and one stationary bike. There are no free weights. The bathrooms are clean and well equipped. I have never had any plumbing issues, hot water is always available. Even though the hotel is located near a busy highway, noise has never been an issue. For the price, it's a great choice if you need to stay in this part of Indiana.

Room Tip: I prefer the third floor.

Great place to stay. I always stay here when I am in the area. The only negatives this stay include: poorly working air conditioner and no ice on my floor. The staff was super friendly and the hotel is clean, and I am extremely picky on cleanliness.

Room Tip: I always choose the top floor.

Excellent place to stay. Hotel is nicely situated away from noise and close to everything. Weight room has limited equipment. Nice size swimming pool and hot tub. Very friendly and helpful staff (especially Katlin).

I’ve stayed here before and love the location (I have business with Valparaiso University and this hotel is very convenient). There are a few things I’ve shared with the management. We’ve played phone tag but I haven’t heard from them again. The hotel is clean. It’s predictable in all the ways that Holiday Inn Express can be predictable. There are a few things, though, that were not up to the brand standards before and some other experiences were frustrating this time. Simple additions would be nice. Lotion and facial tissues that don’t disintegrate when used and more than grape jam and dietetic grape jam at breakfast would be nice. The frustration this time was that I tried to extend my stay but was told by the evening staff that no rooms were available (I knew a middle school basketball tournament and wedding were also at this hotel). I checked on-line and was able to book an additional night. I tried to stay in the same room but had to check out and move down the hall for the final night. I was there for six nights total. I will be back again but I do hope they smooth out the rough edges a bit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice but I still prefer rooms on the back of the hotel, away from highway traffic.

Not a bad hotel! This is my second stay. I was not upgraded rooms as I typically am for being a platinum club member. The water was from Family Express which was a bit odd to me. Breakfast was typical. Room was an ice box upon arrival. I wish they had a thermostat because I woke up several times adjusting the temp. It was pretty clean so I would stay again!

Thank you for your review of our hotel and being a platinum member with IHG. I do apologize for your room being cold when you arrived. We try to turn the heat on for our arrival rooms with reservations although with walk-in guests this practice gets hard at times. I would love the opportunity to speak with you if possible.

Thank you again for the positive rating!
