Holiday Inn Eau Claire South I-94
Ranked #4 of 25 Hotels in Eau Claire
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

Nice new hotel. Staff is very nice and helpful. Check in was quick and easy. Only down side is the hotel is still to new to be on most map and gps programs and Trip Advisor only had the reservation number listed (no good for directions). DO NOT TRUST Trip Advisor s map or directions. Call the local number (715) 830-9889 for directions. The hotel is in the corner of Wisconsin highway 53 and Intestate 94 on the very South end of Commonwealth Ave. Just off Bullis Farm Road.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled on business

Stayed here for my husband's Christmas party, The hotel was lovely, really liked the chic decor. For Eau Claire, WI this hotel and restaurant are upscale. Check in staff were nice and the event coordinator and night manager were very helpful. The room was spacious and really liked the walk in shower.

Our room was away from the highway, but traffic noise still was an issue. Can't imagine what the noise level must be like closer to the highway! The automatic fan in the bathroom sounded like we had left water running in the bathroom. Room noise into the hallway was also not good. In passing other rooms in the hallway I could hear conversations coming from the rooms. Could see into the hallway from our room under the door..too large a gap. In addition, don't book rooms over the conference rooms as people in those rooms were complaining that the DJ in the neighboring conference room was disrupting their stay. These noise issues would be understandable if this was an older hotel, but it's brand new!

Also, did not like that no breakfast was included. Like other reviewers, I would rather stay at a cheaper hotel and receive a breakfast. While it was nice to stay here one time, probably won't be back as there are many other hotels in Eau Claire that offer overall nicer accommodations. Sorry!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from I-94 and not above the conference rooms

Checked in night before last. First, the room was NOT what was requested -asked for a room away from traffic noise...my assigned room was next to the busy, noisy interstate. Called to ask for room change. No one at the desk to answer phone to request a move. Walked to desk, finally found a "manager" looking person. He looked at the computer to check available rooms, then he said he couldn't read the screen...he'd lost his glasses. WHAT...this is the guy who helps people check in and assign rooms??
Finally got another room. He went ahead of me as I wheeled a large suitcase and large computer bag...no offer to help. Opened the door on the hall, went ahead of me and let the door shut as I got there...he just kept walking. Customer respect??
Next morning the restaurant was a disaster. NO ONE (server, wait person) there...finally I took a seat, and finally....I went to the buffet line (only option is the 9.99 buffet breakfast). Poor selection of food; 3 pieces of fruit in a bowl...no juice, no coffee, no wait person to ask....yikes! If it hadn't been snowing and roads slick, I'd have gone somewhere for breakfast. Finally someone came out - said they were really busy - only one other person in the restaurant. I had to virtually beg for coffee and juice...she treated me like I was not important and she'd get to the drinks when she had time. Brought drinks...finally...didn't return until she whizzed by dropping off the check...what service!!
OK - I learned my lesson: NEVER stay at this place again. It may LOOK new...but service is almost non-existent. Count me GONE!!

Room Tip: Stay someplace else...

We had a wonderful stay, our room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was beautiful and had a very nice shower. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool area was clean and the water was warm. Our children loved it. The breakfast buffet was very delicious with lots of choices. It is a great location, right by the mall and restaurants. We will stay there again!!

Stayed for business. Worked w/hotel staff to accomodate our group. They made sure every detail was taken care of. Atmosphere & food was superb in Johnny's. Meeting space is awesome. Not sure what else to say. Highly recommend.

Ok so it's brand new....... Everything here is nice. Rate could be a little less but we'll cut some slack until the honeymoon is over. What's not to like? Great rooms, big TV - the most channel choices including premium movie channels you'll find anywhere. Like the showers instead of the tub. On site restaurant (Johnny's) is very good. Food is excellent and priced fair for a hotel. The bar area is very big and has a great vibe. Friendly service everywhere. Only slight downside is the location. Right off the side of I94 but tricky to find). Might suggest a continental breakfast of sorts or at least a bowl of complimentary fruit.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade. Maybe they'll "comp" you one.....

Stayed here for one night on business. The hotel is easy to get to and appears to be very new. I usually avoid Holiday Inns but this one is much better than the others I've stayed at. Room was spacious and the TV had DirecTV with channel guide - a very nice touch. Bed was very comfortable. Bar had a good selection and breakfast was very good for under $10.

A couple downsides - even when turned off the room a/c would click on and off constantly. I had to unplug it to get to sleep as it was louder than my white noise app. I also heard the person above me walking around.

Room Tip: Request top floor
