Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kj54 Good night's stay
A good clean comfortable room gave a good night's sleep. The pool area was fine except that the shower by the pool didn't work. The food at the restaurant was very good. All in all, a good place to stay.

I did have an issue with my stay, but when I brought it to the attention of the manager he completely understood the issue and rectified the problem.

Actually, I prefer to stay at a Holiday Inn Express, since I don't need the pool. The Express units have much better bathrooms, refrigerators in the room, larger rooms, bigger beds, and free breakfast along with all the other services you provide. A much better value.

There were 8 of us staying there and no one was happy when they left...too bad...if only employees would have been better trained and had better attitudes...

Well...I have to say that the property has suffered a big change recently. I stayed for 6 nights again this trip and 2 days that my room was cleaned, cleaning rags had been left behind and the room floor was dirty. Then one day they did not get to my room till after 5pm so i passed on that. The GPI corp rate went up and the perks went down. I think we will be looking to stay somewhere else going FW. Seems that the atmosphere at this hotel is going to be different.

The hotel is nice, but has limited number of microwaves and refrigerators. Will probably not stay here again for that reason.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CardsFan82 This Hotel went to the DOGS!
Stayed here for a tour of WMU. After checking in we were greeted by a large dog barking in another room. They moved us to the next floor only to hear it louder. Moved us again to have another dog across the hall. I figured after 3 moves I'd turn up the fan and deal with it! I understand it's a pet friendly hotel but wouldn't you think they would keep the rooms in a block, not scattered around? I think for allergy reasons that would be appropriate. The last room smelled of mildew and the chair's leather was nasty. The bartender I had was rude to say the least! More interested in playing with her phone, never gave a total or said thanks! I'll be in this area a lot in the future and would never stay here again!!

This is always a great place to stay. On occasion I bring my labrador retriever and they always welcome her. Rooms are always clean and I can count on the staff when needed. I'm kind of a bed snob so that is the only thing that could be improved.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler8708 I was only there for 8 hours
For a quick overnight stay I would say it was a good stay. There is no provided free breakfast. Our room window was facing the pool area and the room darkening drapes did not keep the light out from the pool area which made it annoying to sleep if you are used to sleeping in the dark. But at 11pm, I wasn't about to request another room with a sleepy toddler.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mark195 Nice Hotel, lousy bed, lousy AC unit.
It is a nice and very clean hotel. But the Heating and cooling unit is an antique and was unable to control room temperature. Freeze or burn up. Only two choices.
The Bed is the usual Holiday Inn type. Hard as a rock and for me that is a lousy nights sleep.
The noise from other rooms can be heard through the walls which is another bummer.
The Toilet which is the pressurized type is like a rocket engine when you flush. Too loud!!! Then it does not refill unless you jiggle the handle several times and then listen to tell if it is filling or just wasting water.

I have given this location chance after chance to improve and they do not seem to want to nor care about their customers. I could not recommend staying at this hotel and there are far less expensive hotels in the area that value their customers.

Horrible check-in experience. Bed reflected number of stays. It may be that flipping the mattress may help.

We came in late and left early both nights that we spent there, so we didn't use any of the hotel's services. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The fact that the hotel was pet friendly was the main reason we chose it. Would stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JLC14 billing issue
I used points to redeem two rooms for one night stay on 6/27. However when I came back from the trip, I realized that I was being charged twice on my credit card, once for each room i guess for 6/27-7/3. Still trying to figure out what went wrong with the bill.

I have stayed at this facility on numerous occasions. As usual the staff does a good job of keeping an older facility in good shape..The rooms and the common areas are clean. When we have been there, there is usually some large group, this time it was a kids baseball team, that seems to have the potential to overwelm the abilities of a staff to keep up. Yours takes it in stride and doesn't seem to miss a beat. Keep up the good work.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Julie410 Disappointed
We have visited the Holiday Inn in Kalamazoo several times over the past 7 years and had always been happy....till this last visit. When I called to make our reservations I specifically ask for a room that was pool side on the first floor because we would be celebrating our sons graduation and wanted to have easy access to the dome area and the things we had in our room without going up and down the stairs.....I was told "no problem we have a room available" . Well upon arrival I was told that our room was on the 2nd floor and no other rooms were available and that the request was not in my reservations. After I told her I would not have paid the cost of a poolside room if I knew the first floor was not available, she did apologize and adjusted my bill but we had to go out to another establishment to celebrate.
Then when we finally were settled into our we noticed that the air was not working properly so we called the front desk to have someone check it...the service guy showed up quickly and told us that the compressor was just slow kicking in and that it would be fine "shortly". We had told him that we had it on high cool and set at 60 for an hour before we called and it was not working, but he was convinced it would be soon. This just happened to be on a very hot day and the humidity was extremely high...the room never did cool off and everything including the carpet felt very sticky and damp and it was awful sleeping. It was a very disappointing stay on what was a very special day for our family.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eeyore29 Nice hotel, but issues
During our stay, the AC unit made horrific noises. We contacted the front desk, and a maintenance person was dispatched quickly. As he opened the access door, the noises went away. Short-lived. They started back up around 12 AM and wouldn't stop (every 10-15 minutes or so when the unit would turn back on). No sleep.
Be wary of the pool side rooms. We were told twice during check in that kids were to be out of the pool at 10:30 and adults at 11:30 and it would be quiet after that time. Kids were in the pool area until at least 12, and adults were in the pool area until at least 2 AM, even after we called at 1 AM. I don't mind a good time, but put better (read sound-deadening) glass in the windows as it magnified the sound.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clutch61 Great service and friendly staff
The Staff in both the hotel and the on site restaurant were very friendly. The room was clean and so were the hallways and common areas. This is a great location if you have young children with the pool area and game area. If you are planning a couples retreat, be prepared for a little league, hockey team or tennis team to be running around the pool area. The on site restaurant offered a wonderful menu. The food was good and the service was wonderful as well.

As always, Holiday Inn Express tops the chart as the place to stay when you are looking for value, convenience and consistency. Whether in state or abroad, I have never been disappointed with service or staff.

While my stay was perfectly comfortable, I was disappointed by a couple features of the HI-Kalamazoo West:
First, there was no option to reuse linens while staying multiple nights. As a business-focused hotel in a University neighborhood, I expected more. If I wanted to save my linens, I had to put up the Do Not Disturb sign and decline housekeeping services. Its a disappointing and lazy out-dated practice. There was also no recycling option in the room.
Second, the coffee and in-room breakfast was sub-par. There was no way to get breakfast and coffee for less than $15 (in a city where Per Diem rates are much lower), and the in-room coffee and creamer was terrible. Again, I expect more from a business-focused hotel.
