“Great Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2011

My family and I recently stayed at this property on our way back home from a family Thanksgiving. The drive was long so we decided to stop and take a rest for the night. We typically always choose Holiday Inn Brand hotels because of our Priority Club status. The moment I walked in the door I was greated with a smile. The front desk staff was so friendly and helpful. Not only that but the rooms were very clean. The property looks like it just went through a remodel because it looks brand new. We enjoyed the pool, it gave the kids a place to burn all their energy. I would definetly stay there again.

I was traveling for work and stayed at this hotel. My room was fresh, clean and very spacious. The towels were scratchy, but every hotel I've been too has this. The bathroom & shower were very clean and roomy. The hotel has a nice looking pool, though I didn't get the chance to use it. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
Being a bit of a health nut, I'm always a little worried about hotel breakfasts. I was very surprised to see flavored yogurt, fruit, eggs, bagels and bread, a pancake station, juice and coffee. They also had omelets, sausage links and biscuits and gravy.
Overall, this was a great hotel for a great price. It was easy to find and I would gladly stay here again.

This definately is not an "upscale" location.....just an average hotel. The bedding was clean and comfortable. Floors could have used some work. Housekeeping could improve greatly. While we were there (Friday and Saturday), there were staff visitors --family perhaps, running in the halls and upstairs. They ran around on Saturday half the day, also. There seemed to be workers in and out. Did not feel real safe staying there. The Sunrise Restaurant served a really great Friday Fish Dinner and their staff was extremely friendly and helpful. If this is just a stop for a night and you want a comfortable bed, this place will do. Not much around to do!! Not much for breakfast if you don't want a lot of saturated fat and pork.

This is a family owned Holiday Inn right off Interstate 90. We travel between Cleveland and Minneapolis 2-3 times a year and usually stop here. Very nice place and a good breakfast. We always call and book instead of booking online, they give us a better rate because we "roll in and out" which means in after 10 pm and out by 8 am.

Lots of great things about this hotel- clean, updated, free internet, right off the highway, gas station next store, not a bad neighborhood, front desk was helpful, etc. Only thing I didn't like was the sink was small & barely had space to put out my stuff. But, that wouldn't keep me from visiting again. I enjoy Holiday Inn Expresses when on the road. The rate was about $100 for a weeknight, but I got a gov't rate of around $88. A little more than I wanted to spend- but the peace of mind translated into a good night's sleep. There is also an indoor pool- but we didn't have a chance to try it out. Would also recommend to families.

Nice location along the interstate hwy, nice new hotel, everything neat & clean, nice pool & hot tub, very quite despite being next to the hwy, free breakfast was not as grand as I had hoped. Overall, I would definitely stay there again!! A little pricey but a really nice hotel!
