I reviewed many other hotels in the area on TripAdvisor before choosing this one. Sure, it's located a couple miles east off of Interstate 94 but well worth the few extra minutes of travel ! It's just south of Highway 50 on 94th Avenue in a quiet, safe area that is well lit at night. Besides the front desk, entry into the building otherwise must be made by guest room keys 24 hours a day. That's a plus for security I rarely see when traveling! There are several strip malls very close by (west and east on Highway 50 to the north of the hotel) with easy access if that's one of your pleasures while staying here.
I called the hotel directly and booked a 2 Queen bed room for one night's stay for 4 adults. We travel frequently, and calling any hotel directly has always been the best way to book a room for any length of stay and gets the best results. May I recommend that you reading this do the same.
Our room was clean and comfortable and up to date. TV's are large screen flat panel with many channels in HD and a good selection to choose from.
The room's floor plan layout made for plenty of room to navigate around freely, so was pleasantly surprised when checking in.
Bed's were comfortable and we all slept well. Bathtub/shower combination was clean and worked fine, and was properly stocked with wash cloths, hand and bath towels for 4. It's nice after a long trip to find your requested room properly stocked with the correct amount of bathroom utilities.
The breakfast was AWESOME for a Holiday Inn Express! A lady named Debbie takes care of the breakfast area and is very attentive to keeping the food and drink items available well stocked. The hotel was at least 50% occupied the prior night and she did an exceptional job of keeping the breakfast area clean as well. We didn't feel any pressure to hurry-up and eat and vacate the breakfast area like some hotel's we have stayed at. Everything went smoothly, and the noise level was pleasant as well.
I always critique properties we stay at closely for the value I'm paying for.
Overall, we agreed that this hotel meets TripAdvisor's 5 star rating for excellency. As a frequent traveler and TripAdvisor user, may I highly recommend this hotel when needing lodging in the Pleasant Prairie/Kenosha Wisconsin area. This is a jewel you will want to experience and not pass up.
Thanks again to the staff there for a courteous, pleasant experience with an exceptional breakfast! The hospitality was appreciated!
