Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Orleans60 Always a good place to stay
I have stayed many times at the Ohio's Independence Holiday Inn and have been made welcomed and felt comfortable each time.
On my most recent visit the Hotel was booked only allowing me to stay in a handicap room.
The bathroom flooded from poor shower drainage. When I returned home I called back to speak to their maintenance department. They seemed very grateful for the information and put in a work order for the repair.
I will continue to stay at the Independence Holiday Inn on future visits.

Stayed at the HI for a large gathering. Hallways were hot, breakfast buffet was cold and they sat our party of 6 in an empty overflow room. Great access to highway.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bhalliburton Decent with a few issues
I have stayed here before. Hadn't had really any problems from this particular location. It is not a bad place for the price. The rooms were decent.
I had a few issues during my last stay. On my last stay, the shower was not fully clean. The soap holder in the shower still had soapy water from the previous guests stay. Also, the WiFi was not totally reliable. Connectivity was spotty. I experienced issues trying to get the cable T.V. to work.

Your hotel is excellent. The rooms were able to be climate control. The steak dinner in the restaurant was excellent. Breakfast buffet excellent. My only 2 complaints were that our lunches were not so good for our business meetings and I really missed there not being a frig in the room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 62260 WONDERFUL STAFF NOT SO WONDERFUL FOOD
Travel quite often for this volunteer organization that stayed at your hotel, I was happily amazed at the staff in all areas - courteous, smiling, helpful - from the manager, front desk, cleaning crew, to bartendar.
We did have a few bumps getting linens and towels in our rooms at first, but afterwards, it was okay.
I enjoyed my stay very much, except for the food in general. The powdered eggs were undercooked, the waffles soggy, the coffee weak. The potatoes and bacon weren't bad, but the sausage was cold every morning. I think our presence overwhelmed the kitchen a bit. The beef dinner at banquet was absolutely delightful, but the chicken dry. The young ladies that staffed the banquet were bickering with each other in their language, quite loudly, during our presentations.
All in all, good experience with a few bumps.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete10987 Very nice room & staff
I was there for 6 nights. The staff was kind and very helpful. We had a large group about 450.Everything went very well with the only difficulty being slow service at the banquet. However, the food was excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2travelers A welcome oasis
The urban sprawl of Cleveland was quite intimidating to first time visitors from an Illinois town of 4,000 residents and one stoplight.
The staff at check-in were helpful and courteous. The amenities were excellent. The service and food at the breakfast buffet were outstanding.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ichiban Overall Impression
The front desk staff were exceptional - very friendly - called me after I checked in since I left my sun glasses there on the counter - identified me as platinum member
The breakfast buffet is outstanding - fresh fruit - the serving area was kept spotless - a nice young man insured that the serving spoons were clean - wiped the counter frequently.
On the first day server was not very responsive - did not get my coffee until the I had already had finished my eggs. - this is unusual as I have stayed there at least 3 other occasions and have always had exceptional service.
Our room was on the top floor and the air conditioning did not work well for an unusually hot day in northern Ohio. Luckily the temperature was cooler the next day. The hotel is showing it's age. Would recommend it and I will return again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Elecfarm not treated as a platium member
We were not offered a room up grade, gift bag or morning paper.
Their focus seemed to be to the convention functions.
Directions to shopping and restaurants were very sketchy, at best.
Handy cap parking was minimal and not supervised for those that did not have a hand cap permit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steelworker1010 Great value and Nice rooms!
I travel on business to Cleveland about one a year and this hotel has always been a good value and always very clean rooms. I have to say that the staff is outstanding as well.
Having The Fish bone and Out Back right next door gives you great choice for lunch and dinner.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KAO2958 Nice comfortable property on edge of Cleveland
I stayed here on April 28,2013. The exterior of the Hotel is clean and attractive, with nice landscaping. The Lobby is also very attractive. The check in process was very quick and uneventful.
The room was very nice and clean with what seemed to be rather new furnishings. The bed was very comfortable and the room its self was also quiet, no highway noise from the highways which are very close and easy to access. The breakfast was standard buffet fare but was done well and tasted very good.
Overall I would definitely recommend this property and would also personally choose to stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Arizona2013 Front Desk Staff unwilling to assist guest.
The staff are too quick to pass the call to other departments without taking the time to assist the guest. I'm a platinum status member....I will never stay at this property again....When I asked to speak to a Manager...he or she was not available.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RickyJ NIce Hotel and easy to find location
I visited this hotel for a local Supplier's conference.
My room was big and spacious, and the wireless internet was free and worked well.
I enjoyed the food and staff working during the conference activity in addition to the service in the bar later that evening. I was impressed that the bar had a live band mid-week on a Tuesday evening in April. It was a great feature and I will try to return to this hotel, the next time I am in this area for business.

Me and my husband travel to this hotel from Michigan once a month to go dancing, and we have meant a lot of great people. The staff at the hotel is great, especially Ann Marie at the front desk, and Roy in the lounge.
The rooms are gorgeous and fairly new.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DKagain Old Hotel - Dirty Executive Room on Level 5 - No Supplies
I've stayed here before and it's worn out. The "Executive 5th Floor" which was exclusive and more $$$ had a gathering room where at 7pm all the goodies were gone and a mess remained. Couldn't sit in this room to watch TV as it was filthy. In the morning there was a small plate with a few bananas and some fruit on it wrapped in plastic. Never happy with this old place - value and comfort. Need a newly built HI Express in the area to compete - they are living on the location.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CPD723 Stay was not the greatest.
My family and I were very disappointed with our stay at your hotel. The bed was hard as a rock, the pillows were a joke, the drapes were also a joke they did not block out any of the light. The TV remote did not work like it was supposed to. You would have to push so hard on the channel button to change the channels.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Flade HI Independence, OH
Checked into an almost deserted hotel Sunday evening. Although the attendent was not busy, I didn't get so much as a "Welcome." Asked if they had a bar and restaurant and was told "yes" so I decided not to visit any of the nearby restaurants. In fact, the very large bar was not open so I made my way to the restaurant.
Went in and sat in a nearly deserted dining room. If it were not for one large table with about 15 workers from one company, then it would have been me and one couple. There was one female attendent (who was polite - but obviously suffering from a cold# and one male attendent #who was also polite - but looked like he was dressed as a handy-man). Neither one of them looked like they belonged in a restaurant, serving food. That was it for staff and one could easily see that they were hard-pressed to keep up. I asked about the bar and was told matter-of-factly that "It is closed on Sunday." I was able to order a drink at my table.
After looking at the menu, I decided on the smaller Rib Eye for $18.00 and was told, again matter-of-factly that "We are out of the 12 oz.; do you want the 16oz? Nope, not for $24.00+ I didn't. I kinda felt that any other restaurant would just cook the 16 oz or maybe shave off a couple of ounces in order to give me what I wanted.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ajhawk Nice for short stay only
Hi this is my .02cents as live 365 days in hotels. I have been staying in this hotel fro. Last 4 years and no issues as use to have nice staff which is history now.
However house keeping is a big issue . If you are staying there , you might come back at5 in the evening and chances are room is still no cleaned. And I called every time saying that need late checkout as being priority member it does not work. The cleaning people will start banging at your door at noon even you have called and put " do not disturb" sign. If you are looking to travel abroad and need some extra sleep, this hotel is not for you.
Above we're my reasons to stay as for long term stay I stayed in mentor which is cleaner and much much better.
