Staff was very accomodating, friendly and welcoming. The rooms were outstanding. More room than I even imagined!!
The beds were very comfortable as well. The suites were definately worth the money!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by men47 Overpriced and dated, needs a good cleaning
We have stayed at this Holiday Inn in LaCrosse several times previously and have always found it to be handy to city life and whatever we were going to be doing. We were disappointed at this stay as it was the most expensive and dated hotel with the least amenities. It really needs to go through a complete modernization. Love the location but will look for optional hotels next time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Handbell ringer Bad Wi-fi service
The room was mostly o.k. although the sofa was not so comfortable. It seemed very worn and saggy. We didn't try the sleeper part of the sofa because of the condition of the sofa. We just assumed it would not be very comfortable. Luckily the King size bed was plenty large for two women to share. The bed was very comfortable.
Our biggest complaint was very poor Wi-fi service. Sometimes it took a long time to get the service and it worked slowly. Other times we were not able to get it at all. This was very annoying.
I also had issues with the perfumey smell in the lobby. Perfumes give me headaches so this was not so great for me, but I understand that it would be a good thing for a lot of people.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DJ Mn Great service from the front desk staff
We were with a large convention group. Our reservations were accurate and our rooms were together. Sean and Ray at the front desk made us feel welcome and checked us in efficiently. Rooms were somewhat small but the beds were comfortable with an assortment of pillows. The carpeting could have been cleaner.
The restaurant was average with slow service.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn and Suites while we visited UW La Crosse. Lobby was inviting and the room was clean. The furniture could use a major updating as it was pretty worn. Beds were comfortable. Did not use the fitness area or pool. It was a Sunday night and the restaurant was not open. Check in/out was efficient. The location is perfect for walking to the downtown area. I would stay here again.

Toilet broke, fixed right away. Front desk were snotty. Parking hard to find with a $5.00 charge where I could have charged ourselves and only had to pay around $3.00. This one is off our use list.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dawn68 Bed and pull out couch need attention
Very disappointing bed and couch in room. Wish I had a picture to show you how badly the couch cushions sagged! We wouldnt even sit on it as I know we'd be on the floor! Luckily brought an aero bed along as I read other reviews online that were bad. We did open the bed to look for bedding and the mattress was so bad which wasn't shocking. Our mattress was terrible as well. This property needs a major face lift.

Pet fee is $50. Laid clothes on couch, and had dog hair from a previous pet on my clothes. Take that $50 and pay the maid to clean the room better.
Room was too humid. Felt damp and musty.
Parking is $5.
Attached restaurant is the star. Great food and fast room delivery.
Wont be back. Just isn't a special place for all the additional fees.

This is the second time I've stayed at this HI location. I really like its location in the heart of downtown La Crosse, and being walking distance to everything. The rooms are comfortable, and the restaurant is good as well (used once for breakfast). However, I need internet access when I travel for business, and this is the second straight time I could not get a signal in my room, and wired access was not available (room numbers occupied in recent stays were 100 and 207). Internet was available in the lobby, restaurant and bar, but that is not satisfactory regarding my work. The next time I come to La Crosse, which will be in August, I will be staying at either the HI express in Onalaska, or the other property up the road that does not provide maid service (forgot the name)--at least those places have internet in the rooms

We came to La Crosse so we could spend some time downtown. The Holiday Inn is in a great location to be able to walk around and for choices of places to eat. We would recommend it also for it's friendly staff and clean rooms. We didn't use the pool but it is fairly large and would be a nice place to bring your family to swim .

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Notoblame Great Hotel One VERY Rude Staff Member
Overall we had a great experience at this hotel. We came for my bachelorette party and used the Winona Radio Special. I called ahead of time and worked with several different people who went out of their way to make sure we could use the coupon. When I called to verify the Winona Radio Special and we were told a voucher for breakfast would be given and when one of the gals who also called with a voucher was also told about the breakfast. We had 3 rooms total, 2 of us checked in within a half hour of each other another, a couple of hours later. The 2 of us who checked in right away were given a voucher for 2 to go to the restaurant for breakfast and the one who checked in later did not and it was because we had used the Winona Radio Coupons. We spoke to a VERY rude lady, Michelle who told us WE weren’t supposed to get the voucher for breakfast because WE used the Winona Radio special. When I was discussing between my sister & I, just talking to say I was told this on the phone, my sister in law, who also called was also told this on the phone, Michelle interrupted us and repeated because WE used the Winona Radio deal WE weren’t supposed to get it. When I attempted to explain to Michelle why we were under the impression she again interrupted me and said WE weren’t supposed to get it….YES WE—implying we were to blame in this game. After Michelle finished interrupting both my sister & I we attempted to tell her it was obvious the staff didn’t know how to handle it and as a member of staff it was HER responsibility (NOT MINE) to notify management and the rest of the staff how the Winona Radio specials should be handle. YES, we had to attempt to explain this a few times until we could finally do it without her rudely interrupting that it was our fault and not the staff’s fault. When we finally did we were blown off and she did not take it serious that it was HER FAULT and the FAULT of the staff at the Holiday Inn why we were upset. Not once did anyone apologize for the mistake of the hotel, but instead wanted to make sure it was mine & my party’s fault for their mistake.
It is a nice stay and a wonderful hotel, just don’t talk to or in front of Michelle she will rudely interrupt you and blame you for the staff at the hotel not being on the same page.

The HI needs to change out the sleeper couches in the rooms...they are the same in all the rooms Ipve stayed in the last three times. They are tired looking and when you sit on them you're almost on the floor!

The bed was broken down and uncomfortable. The sheets were scratchy. There was a convention and the dining room and bar were filled with loud, drunk people on a Monday night. At midnight the same drunk people were running around the halls yelling and laughing. I had to pay to park in the hotel lot! The two men at the front desk were not the friendliest. I've stayed at Holiday Inns all over the United States. I had planned to stay at this one a minimum of two. I guts a week for the next year. Not now! I will find a different Hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Janie J Bad to worse!
Came to LaCrosse for a pool tournament.....
Check in experience was good. Very friendly gentleman at the front desk when we checked in...That was the best part of the stay!
Friday when we got to the room, we found food in the fridge and a pair of ladies underwear between the bed and wall....yuk
Saturday afternoon when we came back to the hotel it smelled like a backed up sewer. Made my eyes water to walk in the front door! Saturday night we had a group of partiers drinking in the hallway of the 3rd floor at 10:30 p.m. Called the front desk and was told someone would be right up to get rid of them...yeah right! Same girls at 3:00 a.m. drunk! Called the front desk and there was no answer! Called again...same result...No sleep the rest of the night...Next morning...beer bottles, empty glasses, straws etc. littering the hallway...looked like something out of Animal House!
Sunday morning checkout....Told the older woman at the front desk of the 3:00 a.m. experience and she blamed it on the pool players....as I was standing in front of her holding my pool cues...I corrected her and stated that I knew these were not pool players and she stumbled on her words and said oh must be a bachelorette party....She was the rudest person in the hospitality industry I have ever ran into. How dare she generalize a group of people instead of just apologizing for their bad service!
That woman should NOT have a job dealing with the public!
The young man at the front desk with her was at least nice and accomodating to us, apologizing for the problems we had and gave us 30% off our stay.
Will never ever go back to the HI in LaCrosse....I will forego the Priority Club and stay across the street....
I also plan on notifying the vendor of the tournament to make sure that they do not recommend the HI for any players coming to LaX in the future. This way the front desk lady doesn't have to put up with us "nasty" pool players....

We have stayed at this hotel many times for conventions at the La Crosse Center. The staff is always very professional and friendly. We often are traveling with our young kids and the staff makes sure we have everything we need. In this past trip I called the hotel before we arrived and mentioned that we had a sleeping toddler in the car. The staff set up the crib for us prior to our arrival and made check in super easy. The rooms are always clean. Our kids enjoy the pool area as well.

Both queen sized beds had visible wear - both were "U" shaped. Would have been really tough to sleep with anyone in these beds. Had to sleep in the middle of the bed. Cold water was shut off in the bath room.

If you are attending an event at the LaCrosse Center, you can't ask for a better hotel location. The only issue I had with the hotel is that there was a cold breeze coming from the outside wall around the heater. We put extra blankets over it to slow it up a bit.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by lakzok Surprisingly marginal experience
Typically, I've had a great history with Holiday Inn.
This stay was the exception, rather than the rule.
- Upon check-in, I was offered either a free drink coupon or 300 bonus rewards points. Since I was being charged for parking, I asked instead for the parking fee to be waived. Request denied.
- Heat in the room was wildly variable. One minute, it'd be uncomfortably hot; 15 minutes later, it was too cool and the unit wouldn't kick on.
- Either my neighbors were super-loud, or the walls are thin and poorly insulated.
- I'm guessing lack of insulation on the interior walls - I could hear every bit of water [loudly] anytime the upstairs ran shower/sink/toilet.
- No free breakfast of any kind. Given the price of the room and charge for parking, I at least expect some cereal and milk.
- The fitness center was decent, though a little cramped and missing any free weights
Like I said - the exception to the rule. Holiday Inn's tend to have a better standard than this experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dg1955 Outdated-over priced
As a "frequent flyer" business traveler, 3-4 nights out each week, I am pretty savy at picking the right properties and avoiding those like this one. There is little convenient parking which means you pay extra to park in a garage around the corner. The rooms are very outdated to say the least. The staff was friendly enoug. I wont book this one again.
