Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 138 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not the best The service was just fine but the room was not. It was clean but the layout/furniture placement was terrible. The room was dark;there was a table to work on but in the darkest end of the room with no lamp nor outlet near; the King bed was shoved up against the wall on one side with no light for the person on that side who had to crawl out the end of the bed. The mattress was lumpy and one could feel the other persons every move. The bath towels should have been retired long ago...they were thin and shredded at the ends. We were on a two week trip and stayed at Holiday Inn Express over half the time. This motel in Benton Harbor was not up to the HIE standards we had become accustomed to. October 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't try to checkout late Property is slightly below average for Holiday Inn Express. Morning breakfast was inedible eggs. What really turned me off though was no flexibility on 11AM checkout. As a property that attempts to cater to the business traveler this is unacceptable. I was forced to get off a conference call at 11:03 because I didn't realize checkout was 11 and they refused to extend my stay by 30 minutes which is all I asked for. October 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice room We for sure would come back to this Holiday Inn Express, the staff is so kind and helpful. Our room was so comfortable and we can not say enough good things about the breakfast at this hotel. We will be back in the area again and will stay here. The best part was knowing we were staying in a nice clean hotel and close to everything we were in the area to do. Top notch place. October 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by My Stay I was very pleased with the hotel staff and general layout of the common areas. My room was very nice and I did not have any negative issues with amenities. I definitely would stay at this hotel again in the future! October 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and Comfortable Had a great stay at this HIE - staff were very accommodating, the place was clean and well-tended to and the expectations for the Holiday Inn Express were met - we always stay at HIE whenever possible! September 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place for the night On our way to Sleeping Bear Dunes and we needed a room for the night. Accommodations were wonderful, comfortable pillows and bed, good breakfast, friendly staff. September 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by special treat, dinner and breakfast My wife and I stopped here on the way to Canada and were very much surprised by a dinner which they have Mon.-Wed. evenings. Had a very enjoyable stay here just passing through. September 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great bed, responsive staff Great experience at the HIE, Benton Harbor MI, while staying in town for a wedding. Staff at every level were visible at some point during our stay and all were friendly and knowledgeable, as well as quick to make us happy! Beds were more comfortable than I have ever experienced, including some high-end hotels in large cities. This is probably the best experience I've had at HIE! Also, close to many other amenities necessary in the area. Would definitely stay here again and encourage others to do the same. September 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HIE Benton Harbor, MI the sign of Pipestone Road is so small you will probably drive right by; look carefully. Otherwise a very nice HIE September 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by business Great place and easy access to the interstate. Staff makes effort to please. September 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good Basic Room Nothing exotic, good clean functional room. Mattress could use an upgrade. Staff was responsive, easy access. September 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Always a pleasant stay HI Express came through for me again. Comfortable bed, clean, fresh breakfast choices, and a control to have the fan for the in-room HVAC stay on all the time. I will be back if I have a chance. September 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service Comfortable bed and great service Comfortable bed and great service Comfortable bed and great service Comfortable bed and great service Comfortable bed and great service September 6, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Breakfast Everything was fine except for the Breakfast. It was so busy there was no place to sit. The scrambled eggs were empty. No biscuits. When you are that busy the girl working the breakfast needs more help. September 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by my "go to" place to stay I have stayed in many hotels in this area and this one is always my favorite. It is clean, comfortable, quiet September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 traveling coast to coast... We stayed at Benton Harbour Holiday Inn Express as I was travelling from east to west for work relocation. I was travelling with 2 children under 7 and a dog. The hotel impressed me from the minute I arrived after finding it with my NAV system. The hotel was close enough to the highway to allow easy access but far enough away as to not be noisy. The parking lot was clean and the exterior of the hotel very nice. The staff greeted me with a cookie and were happy to answer my questions. That night was complimentary chinese food for guest. The manager was on scene and engaged the guests. The rooms were nicely decorated and modern. The wifi was quick and easily accessed. The next morning I was surprised to see such variety at the complimentary breakfast. The staff and hotel impressed me and my kids. The pool and hot tub were nice as well.. Great staff, great amenities and a nice break after 550 miles on the Interstate.. August 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Professional customer service A pleasant experience away from home! Staff could not have been more efficient, friendly or helpful. This is "my kind of place" when traveling. August 31, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxing Evening A quiet, comfortable and relaxing night at the inn. Good value and would stay again. August 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Concern of staff Manager of hotel greeted us in common area and asked how we were doing. I also saw him walking around the outside of the hotel and checking for make sure grounds were clean. I saw him pick up a paper wrapper on the ground. August 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, comfortable room, good hotel breakfast., Thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay here, but our room facing the expressway had more traffic noise than I'd have liked. August 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel with Friendly Staff Found the staff to be very friendly, attentive, and responsive. For a high volume weekend the staff kept their cool and the breakfast staff did their best to keep everything well stocked. The location is adjacent to a major interstate so there could be a little better sound insulation for the rooms on the north side of the hotel so could affect a light sleeper. Liked having a refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave available in the room although only used the fridge. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay! My stay was everything that I expected with no issues. I would recommend this hotel if in Benton Harbor. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great experience The GM was extremely helpful with a billing issue caused by the worldwide reservation center. He was also helpful in recommending places to see during our stay. The front desk staff and housekeeping were very friendly. We had 2 rooms and found the rooms to be clean and comfortable with very little noise. Breakfast had a variety of food that was kept constantly full. My only recommendation would be to have a bathroom fan to use during showers. Overall it was a very good experience and would return. August 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff, excellent value The staff at the hotel were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast selection rotated each day during our 4 day stay, which was nice when traveling with kids. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that during our stay this location offered a dinner 3 nights a week (Greek one night, Chinese another and then Fiesta night). Conveniently located, it's a short drive to Silver Beach, restaurants and shopping. The pool was clean and perfect for entertaining a 5 and 3 year old. The only concern was that the person staying above us was heavy footed and we could hear them walking around at 6AM. Didn't bother the kids, but woke mom up. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Service! Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Staff went out of their way to make sure we needed nothing. Quiet at night with no outside noise. Called the front desk to ask a few questions and they were extremely helpful. August 12, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great service clean, and friendly staff, the pool was just to cold to even get into, other then that this is a good place to stay. August 6, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Will not stay here again I will not stay at this hotel again. The Guest Room was dirty. My shoes stuck to the floor! Also, the front desk was not helpful at all. I ask for maintenance to be sent to the room to fix a falling bathroom light fixture. No one came...I had to fix it myself. When I checked in, my holding credit card had been charged, and I did not want it to be. I was told there was nothing they could do, and the front desk clerk told me in the future to call the hotel directly so issues such as this would not happen again! August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Staff This was a perfect no-nonsense hotel. The Staff and Housekeeping were awesome July 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ok if you cannot find a condo We stayed in this hotel because we could not find a condo. I felt the room was overpriced for the type of hotel. The continental breakfast was better than most. The indoor pool was very clean and the water was quite clear. We had a problem with the toilet and was offered "a plunger to borrow." Apparently there were no maintenance staff there are about 6 PM. They said they would address it first thing in the morning. We checked out about 1030 and it never was addressed. July 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff The front desk clerk was the most congenial clerk we have ever encountered anywhere. Very friendly with a great sense of humor. Our interaction with her was most enjoyable. Also, arriving at this hotel after a tiring day of traveling to find that dinner was provided, was most surprising and welcomed. Didn't have to go out in a strange town to find a restaurant. July 27, 2014
