Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CIMRobotics HOT and outdated
Every hallway was 85 degrees or warmer. The room AC had to run constantly to keep the room at a decent temperature. Rooms were outdated along with a miserable bed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nebraskacool Old, needs major overhaul.
Lesson learned. Don't stay at any Holiday Inn if there is a convention centre attached. Loud groups at the pool kept us awake. We had specifically asked for a quiet room, as we were travelling cross country and were very tired. We considered leaving, but were already in bed. At 9.45pm When we phoned the front desk to ask when the pool would close, we were told 11pm! The desk told us 10pm the following morning! We tried sleeping with pillows over our heads. The decor is old and dated, the dark hallways don't smell very nice, and we did not feel comfortable or safe there. The room was missing the amenities expected from a Holiday Inn. The attached restaurant was very old and dated, food very ordinary standard. The kitchen staff were friendly though. The front desk gave us a $20 credit for discomfort. We would definitely NOT recommend this establishment.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jmoore16 Very old and a distinct lack of service...
This is a very old hotel and it does not measure up to the standards that the brand has set. Leaky faucets, rusty electrical outlets, stained carpets and quilts are examples...
It also seems like the hotel is going under and they are trying to salvage the bottom line by keeping a skeleton staff on which hurts customer satisfaction. Housekeeping is slow, the food is terribly slow and poor, the bar closes early, etc.
I would suggest that corporate needs to reaudit this property if it wants to protect the brand...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shurlebl Breakfast at Holiday Inn Joilet.
The breakfast provided with our room was above our expectations.
The waitress who greeted us and took care of us on the morning of 7.25.13 was an asset to your Staff at the Holiday Inn in Joilet, Il.
My wife and I commend her on her attention to detail as she took care of all the people in the room.

Our daughter was having spinal surgery on a Friday of a NSACAR weekend. Room availability was for the entire weekend was not available at other hotels, even at inflated prices. We easily had our needs met, and at a very reasonable rate, for which we were thankful. Our room was on the interstate side, and we did not hear the traffic.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ebird123 Very comfortable bed and exemplary service
I have absolutely no complaints about our stay. The check-in desk employees went out of their way to welcome us and answered all of our questions above and beyond our expectations. The room and bathroom were spotless and the bed was "to die for". The mattress and pillows were wonderful. Our complimentary breakfast was excellent and the lady who waited on us #sorry, I didn't get her name# was beyond friendly. We chatted every day. We were in town to welcome a new grandbaby and she kept asking us about her. She even walked us to the front door when we left. We travel a lot and I have never been as pleased as I was with this stay. The only thing that could have made it better would have been if you had a suite. I really wanted a living room and a separate bedroom but was told you didn't have them. It worked out just fine for us. I am a Priority Club member so I got one night free. That was great! We will stay with you again on our next visit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IHGPLAT Cigarette Smoke deeply penetrated in room
Basic hotel next to highway. Cigarette smoke has penetrated entire room, no way around it. Housekeeping is also very poor. Hotel has tried to improve by adding new refrigerators, large flat screen and new furniture, but smoke is there to stay.
Also there are many semi trucks and work vehicles in parking lot, they start up around 6am and are loud. Tour bus was left running at 6:30am.
Staff was quite good and polite.

Rented 3 rooms at this hotel for a local event. The rooms are spacious, clean, quiet, and comfortable. All the staff (front desk, restaurant, room cleaners) are very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend this hotel and will gladly stay here again when we return to the same event next year. Thank you.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Guest27 One of worst HIE I have ever stayed at
The staff was very friendly. The server at the breakfast bar was a wonderfully lady and a great fit to be working with people. But over all this has to be one of the worst HIE I have ever stayed at. We came down for my brother's wedding and the hotel was right of the interstate which was nice. However the outside wall were very thing and you could hear the cars and even people talking in the parking lot. A member of our party even heard someone getting sick as well. Our room was less the desirable as well. It has a strong smell of urine and it could probably have used a good vacuum as well. The first floor must have been the smoking rooms and the windows were open and screens were missing. Property could use a good update.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah78 A disappointment
I had changed hotels to get into the Holiday Inn given the advertisement and reputation. The staff was terrific: kind and attentive. The breakfast was hot, but all foods were high fat with no healthy choices. No juice, cereal, fruit, or breads. Sausage, eggs, hash brown, biscuits & gravy were available. Staff again were great.
The room was uncomfortable and the air conditioning delivered strong blasts of hot air. Even the staff was surprised.
I received a better package for $30 less at a lesser rated hotel. I will not return.

Many thanks to you and the staff at the Holiday Inn Joliet in serving as our host hotel this past weekend. Participants found the rooms comfortable and staff responsive including the bartenders and staff supporting our Saturday evening reception.
Again, many thanks for a great stay at your hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jjthe1 Stupendous Customer Service
The manager was stupendous customer service oriented. The staff acclimated me to the ultimate intensity in every capacity. I was flooded in my home and had to relocate to a hotel for several weeks, the staff and manager was very hospitable and indulgent to my every penury. I would advocate Holiday Inn Joliet Illinois to all my friends and descendants.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by toc1990 room
i use this hotel through my work. what my impression is when i first walk into a room. everytime i have stayed here the light shades are crooked and at least 1 light has not worked(extention cords not plugged in). makes me wonder how much attention has been paid to the linens and the bath. secondly the coffee maker in the bathroom? and everything that goes with it on the table by the tv?plus the city guide instead of being on the desk its put in a night stand out of sight.im sure the restaurant has a high profit margin.lastly im a non smoker and i am usually put on the 4th floor which is non smoking but the trip to the elevator on the first floor is filled with the smell of smoke. doesnt make me want to eat in the restaurant.

The ILLINOIS Women's Bowling Association would like to thank the staff and management for a wonderful 10 weekends while we used this hotel as the host hotel during our recently completed State Championship Bowling Tournament.
Staff was always willing to help with any request that we made and the rooms were always ready when we arrived.
It was a pleasure to work with this facility

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mark427 Food was good but.....
We stay at this hotel for the convenience to the Caterpillar plant. We are there typically two to three weeks per month. As a valued customer, I am disappointed in management's decisions that affect our stay. For example, we were told the hotel only had 20 rooms filled, yet a guest was put right next door to us. Why not space us out so that slamming doors and television wouldn't be a factor.
Also, a large group of teenagers rent a banquet room and after 1:00 pm came to their rooms, RIGHT next to us. Again, why not place them in an area of the hotel with few guests? Especially high usage guests? When we called the front desk to complain about the noise at 3:30 am - the noise continued (slamming doors, loud music, kids in the hallway talking right next to our door#. We finally called and asked to be moved to another room, which they did - right ABOVE the noise. #From rm 118 to rm 218).
On Thursday we rented a conference room for use on Friday, but the front desk did not have record of our reservation or have the key to unlock the door. Hotel management was called in to unlock the door.
House keeping is also not effecient. Trash was left, coffee pot not cleaned, counter tops not wiped down.
Compared to the Holiday Inn at Port Lavaca, Tx - this hotel is not nearly as nice.
However, the restaurant was good and fairly priced. The morning staff was especially friendly.

For a 2 1/2 star rated hotel this is not one of them. Room was not cleaned every morning and had to pay extra for a microwave and refrigerator. The hallways were noisey after midnight people out in the hallways drunk and being loud.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessTraveler77 Property Condition
The staff was friendly and accomodating.
This property however is showing its age and in need of update.
There is an old smell of the building and the room furniture is in need of replacement. I had a chair with a broken arm and one that was heavily stained. The toilet ran and cycled.
The heating / cooling unit is loud and typical of the era.
The bedding was clean and comfortable and made the stay worthwile.
In it's day a fine place, today it needs a facelift.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by protraveler2005 Worst Fitness Room Ever Seen
Even though it was the smallest room I ever have seen, it was not clean, there was no water, nor TV remote control (you have to stop exercising to change the channel.) Informed the front desk who told me that no one is available till 9 am. Shouldn't fitness room be ready in the morning since most people exersice before work? Besides this hotel does not keep any bottled water for their customers, you have to use vending machines!
