Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GuyBSC Overall Review
The hotel is run down. It is in major need of remodeling and updating.
Dining room staff needs training. Front desk staff was excellent and the rest of the staff I had contact with was very good..
This was my second stay as I did not want past judgement based on one visit. I had better comfort at several Holiday Inn Express than at this Hotel.
I would rather stay at the Hampton Inn in Enfield than stay at this hotel again or go up the highway to Springfield, Ma in the future.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Saudermfgco The Room 504
504 was a clean and well keeped room stocked as it should be the houskeeping was very good. The room was a large room, It had a King size ( what I asked for) there was enough empty space to put another bed in there so the room was not a warm place to relax there was nearly an echo. I felt as if I was in a large storage area they happen to put accomidations for sleeping in with a TV and love seat. The bathroom was very small and the closet area was larger than the bathroom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by maar Overnight stay
The rooms were nice, and very comfortable, however there was an issue with the showers. I had two rooms and both of them experienced the same issue - you have to turn the temp regulator all the way over to the on to get hot water, and it was only tepid. Also the hotel was very busy and there was not really enough seating for the breakfast with that many people there eating. Also the food was not hot, and some of the fruit was spoiled (and it came from a can).

Got a last minute stay at the Holiday Inn, thanks to Hurricane Sandy, but could only stay one night given sold out booking levels. I must say I was very pleasantly surprised. Hotel had undergone substantial (and ongoing) renovations. The room was very nice, newly re-furnished, clean and comfortable, although the smallness, old small tile, and a tub drip in the bath gave the age of the hotel away. Given the current renovation work in the hotel restaurant, we received a free breakfast buffet, another nice surprise. I asked for extra pillows when making the reservation and they were in our room when we arrived! On the minus side, room soundproofing seems a little thin, and hall noise carries. We were awoken with the electrical workers leaving at 5:30 am the next day, deciding to use the outside stairwell to bring down their wheeled luggage. Thump! Thump! Thump! for two floors......staff was apologetic but not much they could do at that juncture. I would recommend, especially if the room not near a stairwell, or renovations are completed. Oh, and the large indoor pool looked very inviting, but alas, we had no time to use it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GSP101 modern room, great bed & TV
Easy access to the private floor, quiet room in the back of the hotel.
One short flight of stairs and we were in. Breakfast was nice with bacon, eggs, potatoes, sausage, fruit etc.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MEN201 Dirty bathroom
Light fixture broken and had to be replaced. Thermostat broken so had to manually turn on and off AC. Bathroom with dirt and hair on floor. I've been staying at this property for years and I never had these problems when Crown Plaza owned the property.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TOFWMom Quite a bargain!
Staff was exceptional, breakfast buffet was wonderful. Room was comfortable but bathroom is very old (the ceiling was very discolored) - that's the only negative about the whole experience. Would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone.

This property needs a complete renovation from top to bottom. I was told they were going totally Non- Smoking when I arrived. Can't have guests possibly smelling smoke but the entire place smelled like a wet dog when I walked into the lobby. Was treated very unprofessionally by the staff while checking in with no mention or any type of recognition for being a Platinum member. Did recieve vouchers for a free cold breakfast? It was $5 more to upgrade to the Buffet which I did do on the first day and found it to be disgusting. Carpets, furniture, and rooms in general are out dated and stained. Won't be staying here again when in the area on business!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MehOnTheHolidayInn Comfortable but annoying
We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Enfield, CT, for three nights because my sister blocked a bunch of rooms there for her wedding.
The hotel room was comfortable enough, but the staff and the policies were obnoxious.
I've NEVER had to pre-pay a night in a hotel room before (and I've stayed in some pretty questionable places), and was shocked to have to put my first night's payment down at check-in.
We went to the hotel restaurant for the breakfast buffet the first morning we were there and were approached by three different staff members for payment during our meal. We were also asked how two different groups of children were paying for their meals; we did not know the children.
I did use the fitness center, and while I was pleasantly surprised to find heavy dumbbells (ranging up to 50 pounds), I was unhappily surprised that there were no weights ranging from 9-19 pounds, and the treadmill was not able to handle race or sprint speeds, so I wound up running outside in the rain instead.
Overall, I can't recommend the Holiday Inn in Enfield, CT. The value was simply not there, particularly with respect to the service we received.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nissah Nice big room and desk, comfortable bed, adequate bathroom
I enjoyed staying here. Even though it was in Conn, close to all the attractions in Springfield, MA, like the Basketball Hall of Fame and Springfield museums. Plenty of parking close to the entrances.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jon2042 Great place to stay
We had help from the Holiday Inn l-800 staff to make these reservations, and we were very pleased. The reception staff both at check in and check out were extremely helpful and very friendly. The two ladies when checking out were very accommodating in helping us make a reservation for the next nights stay.
The restaurant was disappointing. Saturday night and we were the only customers at the time, and no surprise. The soup was warm - not hot. My sandwich was overdone. We have stayed at this property in the past (while still part of another hotel chain) and were pleased with the restaurant then.
Rooms showed some wear and tear, but they were clean and well appointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gina40 Great value
We were visiting Six Flags and decided to stay over at this Holiday Inn. When I initially called, Robert , was very helpful to ensure that we had two adjoining rooms and that my son, who is handicap, was comfortable. When we arrived we were treated very well. We were able to get a discount for breakfast. The only issues were that the indoor pool way to warm and the resteraunt needs updating.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jims property needs work as well as some QC standards
Have stayed here almost weekly for 3 months. While the staff is friendly, the property needs to be upgraded. Different problems occur almost weekly:
- tub plumbing not functioning well
- toilet not flushing completely
- desk lamp missing
- door does not open with key
In addition, there seems to be no consistent houselcleaning standards. The room is usually done reasonably well, but inconsistently
- a different number of towels left
- soap is not replaced
- pillows are not put back on the bed
- bathmat taken and not replaced
- plastic cups are not replenished
