Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value for the service! We stayed at Holiday Inn Express in Richfield near Brecksville because our son was having surgery at Cleveland Clinic. We travelled from Colorado to do this so we needed a relaxed stay and that was exactly what we got! The staff was very helpful and friendly and the overall service was great. Knowing that our son was going through a difficult time they actually called up to our room and said that some fresh baked cookies would be available soon! They wasted no time letting us know that all we needed to do was call if we needed anything. Breakfast choices were about the same every day. Omelets with bacon, yogurt, cereal, biscuits and gravy and bananas. There was also muffins and Cinnamon rolls. Juices, coffee, tea and lemon water was a daily stable. I would have liked to see a little more variety in the fruit section, but breakfast was included, so we were just glad we didn't have to leave and go somewhere. We enjoyed the pool and the exercise room! We recommend this place :) November 5, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great place to stay in the Cleveland area We stopped at this hotel on the way to the Poconos and we had such an excellent experience that we booked a room on the way back home. It is an exceptionally clean hotel with a friendly staff. It is located close to several restaurants and to the Ohio Turnpike. October 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Nice Hotel We have stayed in several Holiday Inn Express hotels and this one was one of the nicest. October 11, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Happy swimmer We had made reservations well in advance of our stay. Unfortunatlly when we arrived we found the pool closed ( one of the reasons we chose this hotel). We immediattly complained and the gentleman said he was sorry and see what he could do. When we returned from dinner he had made arrangements with a neighboring hotel for us to use their pool and reduced our rate to compensate us for the inconvience. We were satisfied- thank you for the extra effort. October 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fire Alarm The fire alarm went off due to a small fire in micro wave. The lady at the front was only concerned about getting all the hotel guest out. The whole incident was handle professionally and courageously. September 26, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Refused me points even after I paid ! Make sure if your office makes a group reservation, the room is in your own name otherwise you will not get the deserved reward points, but they will of course take the Credit Card in your name ... annoyed !!!! September 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our Stay We enjoyed our stay at your hotel. It was convenient for us coming from Chicago and close to the R/R Hall of Fame that we were visiting the next day. We would stay there again. Staff very nice and very helpfl. September 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent in Hotelry great staff helpful and friendly. good sdlection of breakfast items, very clean, inside and out would use again I think the Daubers recomemded your hotel September 21, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by No problems Staying with my wife and mother and law. The room was a handicapped room which was a bonus. The shower was awesome!!! The people at the front desk were really nice. A really long road going back to Washington from New York was a bonus of having a nice place. Free and awesome breakfast was a bonus. The pancake maker is cool. Easy come and easy go!! Hope to visit again. September 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy on off Good place to stay right off the highway. Hotel lived up to other Holiday Inn Express' we have stayed in. Room, service, staff and breakfast were good as would be expected. Hotel was about 10 minutes from a very nice upscale mall and restaurants. Would definitely think about stopping here again. September 18, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by smelly rooms The 1st room we were given smelled like wet feet. We asked to switch, and the woman in the lobby was very polite. She gave us a new room, but they were all out of king beds. We took the new room, but this one smelled smokey. September 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by outstanding!! Outstanding experience. I will come back for sure. All personnel is very considerate of their guests September 9, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Was able to relax after a long day staff was friendly and made me feel welcome after a long drive from Wisconsin. August 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable beds, very good breakfast the beds were very comfortable, the breakfast had excellent choices. I would recommend this location to anyone wanting to visit the National Park, or just going east on the turnpike. August 30, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bad Experience I checked in late (1:30 am), late flight from Dallas. I was given room key but when I enter room, it was occupied. I immediately exit the room because I didn’t want to be shot. I returned to front desk and hostess called the room. Yes it was occupied and the man yelled at her for waking him up. I was told I had to stay at the Motel 6 behind the Holiday Inn. Bad Experience. The Holiday Inn staff on Friday did upgrade my room. Room was great. It was tough taking this as a Platinum Elite Member and not having a room at the Inn. I had to load my car up three times and finally got to bed at 3:00 am. The noise and room at the Motel 6 were terrible. I will think twice about staying at this facility in the future. August 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by how it should be from the moment we arrived to the momment we left...the staff at this Holiday Inn Express was above and beyond. When we arrived around 10pm without a reservation, Dan took great care of us and get us settled into a nice room quickly. Thank you! August 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by easy check in and polite service from staff After driving all day we needed to stop and rest before continuing our journey home. Stopping here was the best thing we did and had no problem getting in for the night and then enjoying breakfast before getting on the road. Thank you Cleveland-Richfield! August 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simply excellent The facility is very clean and the crew are very, very, very professional. August 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great stay! I booked 7 rooms for a business trip and the stay was everything you would expect from a holiday express. very satisfied with all off the services. I had an issue with my television were it would not turn on. on my way to the pool I mentioned it to the clerk and by the time I was back in my room after a quick swim my t.v. was fully functional. my wake up call is very important because I am a very heavy sleeper, I have personally stayed nights at hotels where they forgot to give me a wake up call. at this holiday inn I had o issue. August 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Accessible Location - Clean & Friendly Very nice for the level of expectation. Hotel is not fancy but it is clean and neat with good breakfast options. It is right off of I-80 and I-77 so it is easy to get to Cleavland or Akron. August 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed but stinky room The mattress was awesome, not a brick like most hotels. My room 408 had a distinct sewage gas smell, not sure if it is escaping around the toilet or where. This hotel has not had a decor update in awhile, but the staff was excellent so that makes up for the appearance. August 19, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Advertised discount not available While the room was clean and comfotable, we were disapointed that an online advertised price was not available to us. We requested the discount but the management said they were not aware of the offer. August 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Front Desk Lady!!! Super Very clean, room upgraded, Front Desk lady was exceptional......people make all the difference! August 12, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value, great location This was a comfortable hotel - older, but clean. We were travelling with our disabled son and having the accessible suite was very helpful. It was large and the bathroom was very roomy. However, there was only one TV in the suite in the bedroom area, so once our sons went to bed, my husband and I were left to either go to bed ourselves or go downstairs to the common area. A Tv in the sitting area would have been nice. The staff were generally helpful except for the woman on the desk on the day we checked in. We were a bit early and understood we might not be able to check in right away but she was impatient, bordering on rude. Other than this, our stay was good. Close to Cleveland and about 40 miles from Canton. August 12, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel This hotel was a stop on a longer road trip. The front desk staff member was pleasant and prompt in checking us in. The room was clean and comfortable. Overall, we had a good experience at this hotel and would stay here again. August 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel to be at after a long day of driving Great hotel to be at after a long day of driving. Rooms clean, nicely furnished, quiet. We plan to stay here again on the drive home. August 11, 2013
