Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DaddyS2daB Rude staff, expensive breakfast
This was the last stop of a week long work trip. Every Holiday Inn we had stayed at up to this point was conformable and the staff really seemed accommodating to requests. Each hotel we stayed at had a meeting room that they allowed us to work in where we could set up laptops and write reports. Seems like a simple enough request specially if know on is using the meeting rooms. This location however made it their priority to not allow us to use the room because we did not make a reservation 24 hours in advance. They recommended we use the lobby instead which we did. An hour later we were asked to move because they had to setup for a private party. I must remind you that this private party was being setup in the lobby of the building. Without offering us any other locations to work then just started moving things around and being as unfriendly as possible to get us to leave.
Needless to say, the experience was terrible and the staff were horrible. I even witnessed a manager screaming and yelling at a staffer in front of guests because a chair and table were not in the correct location. Beds were lumpy too. DO NOT STAY HERE

I frequent this property for business in the DFW area. Each stay is comfortable and a good experience. The personal service I receive is commendable.
As a frequent guest I am greated by staff members by name and all are anxious to make my stay a pleasant experience.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OffendedPriorityMember Clean My Room!
We were there for 5 nights. Our bed was made the first night we were there and the last night we were there. Three days we came back to our room in the evening and found there were no clean towels. One day there was no toilet paper on the rollers. This property seemed to be more interested in filling their bar and dance floor with parties, rather than looking out for the comfort of their guest. The managers way of attempting to make things right was offering us a free breakfast one morning...I don't think so!
Contact from an IHG service rep would be welcomed to discuss this in more detail.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DUDLEYB 2 stays and bad attitude from different staff members
I have stayed at over 200 IHG hotels and this is by far the most unfriendly staff i have ever incountered. 1st stay i was waiting for shuttle from DFW for over 45 mins. i called the hotel again and was informed that the shuttle driver was just there and didnt see you, we wil send him again. he arrived and as i stepped towards the van he yelled at the top of his lungs HOLIDAY INN. i was only 5 feet from him. he made some stupid excuse about people not seeing him. 2nd visit , i needed to take the 4am shuttle to DFW, so i got to the front desk at 3:53 to find nooen there . after about 5 minutes and some noise making by me i heard a voice from behind a curtain saying" just leave your key" . when i informed the desk person that i was waiting for the 4am shuttle,he told me it had left already. i was quite upset and advised him that this would be my last stay at this facility. i guess i was too loud for him and i appolligized and told him i wasnt upset with him him rudley informed me that if i didnt SHUT UP he would have me removed from the premises. i have since stayed in the dallas area at other facilities and have good experiences. I WOULD NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL AGAIN

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HNLSurfer American Airlines Interview Stay at Holiday Inn
I was surprised at the modern feel of the Holiday Inn experience.
Newer Hotel. Great design, Clean, Friendly Staff. All the amenities a business traveler needs and then some. Great value with breakfast coupon included. Delicious and healthy choices for breakfast. Evening had activities planned for the neighborhood...but parking became an issue on a Friday night. Very close to the American Airlines Conference Center. Highly recommend it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SouthernCT straight out of the rap song
my friends and I stayed at this hotel for the Kenny Chesney concert weekend. This was a mistake. Upon entering the room we were greeted with a large white biological-type stain on the curtain that was blowing in the AC. after our first night, our room was never cleaned, we received no new towels and our bed sheets were still strewn on the floor. To make matters worse, as we returned from the concert, we found no parking available. Apparently the hotel was having a Chingy style Holiday Inn party in the lobby area. Our ear drums were assaulted by offensive rap lyrics, and we could hear it echoing up the elevator. I have called and filed report and just received an email today... one month later.
atrocious. This is not the level of comfort and hospitality I have grown accustomed to from IHG.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Shrugs Try another place first
I would say to book this place if you have to. It's clean and quiet which is really just what you need but I was disappointed that on two occasions, the staff forgot to bring me something I asked for. On Saturday, May 25th, I asked for an extra blanket (their "blankets" are so thin) at 3pm and I was told this would be right up. I never got the blanket and was cold the whole night. My husband and I woke up with sniffles. If we were to have lowered the AC (which is a unit and not central), the room felt too humid so we left it at 74 instead of 76. The next day, Sunday, I asked for 2 extra towels at 12pm before heading out to the Ft. Worth Zoo so we could go swimming when we got back and have towels ready for the shower but we didn't get those either. When I called to complain at 7pm, I was told that I would have to pick up the towels because housekeeping was out. I told them that I asked for the towels at 12pm (before we left for the zoo) and I was told "oh well, you will have to pick them up now". I was surprised. The service here is not the best at all, even when we checked in a lady at the front told us "you will have to add your member points online yourself", I told her flatly that we never have been told to do this and, being gold members, it's not like this is our first trip. Then she changed her attitude and said she would add the points - this was odd to me. Anyway, I wouldn't recommend this place, the towels are scratchy and non-absorbent, the bed is stiff and the "blankets" are nothing more than double sheets. If the Indigo Hotel wasn't in the ugliest place in Downtown Dallas, I would have stayed there, the blankets were plush and I slept comfortably with central AC. Plus, the staff at the Indigo were really nice but I think the building is awful and the decor is a joke - they have stenciling above the elevator that was applied backwards so the words are a mirror image of what they should be.

- Food has not changed in forever. Even after the previous Food and Beverage Manager was replaced. Good Luck Rosemary.
- I made two reservations 19-22 May (one customer paying) and 22-25 May (another customer paying). Made this clear when I checked in. I work International Programs (Government) and have several countries paying for travel.
- On the night of 24 May the night Manager came to my room and let me know I was supposed to check out 24 May. Not so much. See confirmation's 61206360 & 61213422.
- Not sure what it takes to get an upgrade at this location. Above reservations were made on 12 April 2013. May not have been enough advance to get an upgrade for a Platinum Elite member.
- Only reason for my return to this location was to meet up with a few friends (other frequent travelers# and see Rocket, Becca and a few other staff members that do provide good customer service.
- It is obvious the manager (Richard) does not care about his resources or frequent guests #out of town guests and not the local clubbers that come Friday and Saturday).
- Will not return to this location. It's going downhill fast.

Overall the hotel is great compared to similar Holiday Inn. The hotel restaurant has great food.. but the service has slightly declined. Salad wasn't as fresh, and one of the front desk personnel wasn't very helpful. Didn't acknowledge priority club member at all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MickeyLivesHere Sort of a let down
First, the hotel was great. The overall experience was lacking, but that was related to the personnel. Recognize I am a platinum level member, so I stay at Holiday Inn's frequently.
1. Distance from airport: For some reason it listed this hotel as the closest. With only a few hours between flights I wanted to be rested.
2. Shuttle: The shuttle service was horrible with nearly 1 hour at pickup in the morning and then in the morning, well, we will get to that momentarily. The driver was terse and rude, not very accommodating to other guests.
3. Room: Room was huge with great beds and the typical pillows. I am not a fan of the HI pillows, soft starts with perspective. Overall the room was great. One downer was that I reserved a King and was given 2 Queens.
4. Food: Wings and a salad, nothing spectacular and was a wee bit on the chilly side. Flavor was pretty good, just wish it had been warmer.
5. Staff: Here is where they simply failed the guest experience. first, I called at 03:45 for a shuttle, told me it would be there at 04:00. I arrived downstairs and looked for the shuttle. At 04:02 the desk person came out and stated that the shuttle had left at 04:00. Of course, I was standing there, no shuttle. Turns out the shuttle leaves based upon the front desk clock which is 5 minutes fast, ergo, left at 03:55. The next shuttle would not be available...bingo...another 30-45 minutes. So, I had to take a taxi, at $30. When I asked why she did not state that the front desk clock is set 5 minutes faster than the rest of the planet, she simply stated "Would you like me to call you a cab?"
Truth is I like Holiday Inn. In general they are predictable, regardless of your city. I will classify that and state, people make the difference and between the shuttle driver the previous evening and the woman at the front desk the next day, I simply cannot recommend the hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Workingmom5 Room nice but bad restaurant and room service
Went to restaurant for dinner my first night. Was seated in a very brightly lit dining area and I asked to move into lounge area. Sirloin steak was over cooked and hard. Was told it would take 45 mins to cook new order. Was told no manager on site to escalate to. Then a "manager" magically appeared to say they would try to be faster. I didn't mention how the baked potato was also over cooked because I needed to eat something while waiting for so long on another steak. Second steak came 20 minutes later and was perfect with my cold over cooked potato. Check came with no reduced price on $18 steak or offer to make my martini free. I didn't have the strength to bother explaining how to resolve poor customer service by at least reducing the check.
Next morning I ordered breakfast of Oatmeal, fresh fruit and coffee at 7:15 am and was told it would be delivered in 20 minutes. At 7:55 am I called to find out where my breakfast was. I was told they would get it out ASAP and that they had forgotten about it.
I don't plan on returning to this location. And yes I am a Priority Club Member.

This Holiday Inn has great location to the DFW Airport - close and easy to get into the airport from the hotel. Great Amenities, lots of eating establishments in and around the hotel with sidewalks for walking - and room to breathe. The only downside was the lighting in the bathrooms - poor due to design, not because of light bulbs.

Holiday Inn DFW Airport South was a lifesaver! I was in day two, city #2 of a snowstorm delayed trip home when I needed a place to rest. I called from the hotel, and literally within 10 minutes I was on the free shuttle and within 30 minutes I had showered and getting some rest. Thanks, you saved me!

The shuttle driver was rude with our group of four, we needed a couple guests picked up from another terminal and he pretty much expressed his dislike to do this with a horrible attitude.
I told him that we could take a taxi if this represented a problem, very unpleasant experience. His name was Rigo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GeeR Free room upgrade
Stayed at holiday Inn on Friday night to attend concert in Grand Prairie. During check in I was greeted as a rewards member and because I'm a platinum member I received a free room upgrade at no extra cost without asking which was great. Parking lot had excellence lighting and I felt secured with my vehicle parked their because I have had my vehicle broken into at other area hotels. Dance was going on the night I stayed, because I was on the upper floor did really have a problem with any noise. The only complaints that I have was the pillows were to small, Television didn't have high definition and all channels were available as listed on print out.

This holiday inn is a fairly new hotel in a new area close to the DFW airport and the American Airlines training facility.
It is clean and well maintained. Staff are friendly and the shuttle service is dependable.
Location is good if you have a vehicle to travel to the larger centres for shopping and restaurants. There are a few restaurants within walking distance and the hotels food is good and not over priced!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by agcntry Front desk staff lady is rude
Have stayed at this hotel the last three weeks during the week. Every week I have to fight with the front desk lady(Angela to get a coupon for breakfast. I'm told that my company doesn't get it. I check with my company and am told we do with the rate I'm being charged.
Go back and depending if the rude lady is at the front desk, can usually get a coupon the next day for the remainder of my stay.
Hotel is clean and parking lot is well lighted. Don't expect any free breakfast, coffee, etc. They charge for everything. Better hotels for the rate, that offer some ammenties.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LoneTraveler976 Not a bad place to stay most times
I have stayed here several times and the staff most generally is friendly. The hotel is clean and fairly new. They do have an issue with safes not working in the room a lot recently and sometimes their rate published have been inconsistent. Overall better than most in the same price range. Wireless service does get slow of an evening but it is free. Priority Club is not as good as it once was nor has it perks which is to bad. I would still recommend for the price overall. You do have to tell them you want the breakfast for $5 extra which is much better than the $13 charged without it.

My housband and I travel all over the country. On most trips we stay at Holiday Inn and have had a very good experience from the time we check in to the time we check out. That is how we became Priority Club Gold Card members. Our recent stay in this hotel was terrible. Shuttle service only picked up at one point even though the van drove by our gate and a shuttle service stop. Reception staff was rude and slow. Priority Club Gold bennefits were nonexistent...no early check in or check out, no discount coupons, no nothing! We will never stay at this hotel again. It does not meet Holiday Inn standards. .

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dres Too Pricy for the Service, Room & Parking
We stay at many Holiday Inn Hotels throught the United States and always enjoy our stay; however this was one of our worst experiences. There was only one person at the front desk , so the wait time to check in was too long. There was no parking due to a dance in the hotel. We had to park on the street and this is just not acceptable for a paying hotel guest and for the cost of the room - which was way too pricy for what you get. Our television would not work and the front desk told us to replug in the TV; which meant that we had to move a large piece of heavy furniture ourselves - we are in our 50s & 60s.. The bathroom was not as clean as it should have been. People were loud and partying in the hallways until the wee hours of the morning. We would not suggest staying at this hotel on a weekend night. We hope that this was just an "off night" and not their regular manner of operation.
