Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bishopovalley Very Dissappointed
The outside and the online photos are not an accurate representation of this property. I travel 4 days a week and this ranks in one of the worst hotels I've stayed in in years. It makes you feel like the management and ownership are not willing to put in any money to upkeep and/or update the property.
All the furniture, linens, bathrooms, carpeting, etc. were worn, broken and dilapidated.
I would not recommend this property to anyone.

Rooms are large and nice. Location is great with lots of restaurants within walking distance. Beds are OK. Chairs and sofa not very comfortable. Many sinks and mirrors are chipped and showing their age.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chrost Great location but no morning paper
Your location is fantastic but you lack the little things. For the price of the room I expected more little amenities. Maybe a morning paper a continental breakfast . You had USA today but it was a Sunday morning. I was told by your lukewarm staff i could get the Sunday paper 5 blocks up the street at Kwik Trip. I t was raining and cold. This may sound like nitpicking but those are things that bring people back. Remember the little things. When you charge a premium price you should get premium service.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nickolai102584 You pay for being downtown
Clearly the steep price you pay to stay at the Downtown Holiday Inn in La Crosse, WI is because of the excellent location in the heart of downtown La Crosse. The hotel is within walking distance of restaurants, bars, shops, colleges, and the Mississippi River. However, the website did not explain that the breakfast was served at the adjoining Busters restaurant, and that it was not a typical breakfast buffet like most hotels, but instead was a sit down restaurant with waittreses. So you feel obligated to tip the waitresses serving you, which adds to the expense of paying an extra $10/ night to eat breakfast there. Also, you must provide a slip of paper to the waitress in order get your breakfast free. The hotel gives you one per night stay. My girlfriend likes to sleep in, so I would go down and get breakfast before she woke up. I had to use my slip of paper then and there to get the free breakfast, but then had to pay for my girlfriends breakfast. They should give you a slip of paper per person, per night. I did not like that. Furthermore, the room did not have a DVD player.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SisterBecky Very disappointed in this property
We had 4 people in our party and reserved a standard room with 2 beds. We were given a king suite with one bed and were not able to get a room with 2 queens. A rollaway bed was suggested, but would not fit in the small room. It also would have been a fire hazard to have the rollaway in the room (no easy exit in case of fire). We also did not receive 4 towels even though we paid the extra person charge to ensure 2 beds and 4 towels. The room smelled like a dead mouse and the hair dryer did not work. Front desk was not helpful and we were told there was no manager on duty that weekend. We ended up making the room work, but were very disappointed. We got the extra person charges reversed, but will not return to this location. Also very overpriced for the room size and quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dawnkk Didn't have room I booked
I booked a jacuzzi suite for my wedding night and called that day to see if I could get in early check-in. They told me then that the rooms were being remodeled and were not available, but would upgrade me to a bigger room. Since I wanted to get ready with my bridal party there, this was actually more convenient- however there was no jacuzzi. The gentleman at the front desk who checked me in was very friendly and I had no problems other than the room I booked being unavailable-which ended up working out better anyway.

A group of family and friends stayed at the La Crosse, WI this past weekend for the Oktoberfest celebration and Maple Leaf parade. The staff at the Holiday Inn were all very welcoming and their hospitality was outstanding. I would recommend this property to anyone staying in La Crosse.

Needed a room for an unexpected trip to LaCrosse. They were so nice and friendly on the phone. I called when I had trouble finding the place and they gave me guided directions and stayed on the phone. So helpful, and convenient to so many places. Thank-you so much. You took one less stress out of my life.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KurtAB Terrific location!
Upon checking, the public front desk was clean and inviting. Sam, the front desk agent was warm and welcoming. He provided me with a wonderful room on the 5th floor facing the river. The room was clean, but needed some updating. The furniture was scuffed and the colors were outdated. The bed was comfortable, however the pillows for this king sized bed in my suite were very small, standard sized rather than king sized. It would've been nice had they been down feathered instead of synthetic. There was a freshly dry cleaned small decorator blanket at the foot of the bed that had a horrible cleaning agent smell to it. We removed it and placed it in the front room. That blanket made the room smell bad, however we got used to it. Overall, the stay was pleasant thanks to the courteous staff.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TSS70 The Bad, the Worse, and the Wet
We had a fairly negative experience at the LaCrosse, WI location on Saturday evening, Sept. 14. The young man on front desk duty for the evening shift gave us mis-information on the hours of two local restaurants, resulting in my elderly parents and I walking over eight blocks for nothing. The room only had towels for two people, even though the reservation was for three. The toilet overflowed around midnight. The only bright spot was the overnight employee. He went out of this way to deliver towels and to fix the toilet. Don't think we'll stay there again soon.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by biking quick repair service, smokefree questionable
The room as usual was comfy and clean.
the first night the toilet ran all night but upon request it was fixed the next day. I had to sign a waiver warning me about not smoking in this room, I am a non smoker, upon entering the room I could tell the room had recently been smoked in. I do believe Wisconsin has been smoke free for 4-5 years now so I found it strange that I should smell smoke in this room. very disappointing. maybe a good cleaning and some deodorizing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Seaglo06 Plenty of Room...But Rundown
Overall the hotel was average. It was pricier than it should have been for the condition of the hotel. The bathroom was EXTREMELY run down. The mirror was broken along the edge with a poor attempt at fixing it with mirrored tape. The sink had big chunks broken out of it that had not been repaired. The tub was chipped and badly stained (at least I hope it was stain, and not dirt). The sheets were threadbare (which is extremely unusual for a Holiday Inn). The curtains on the window had holes in them. Basically it was run down and in poor repair.
The service and staff were good, but the hotel needs an overhaul. Especially for the rates they are charging.
If I return to LaCrosse, I probably would not choose this hotel again. Location was great; however.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mmd14 Bed linens were unchanged and stained
While the staff was very accommodating, we discovered stained bed linens after having slept in them!! They had not been changed from the previous guests! Needless to say we were completely disgusted. The hotel credited us for one night.

The front desk is friendly and as a priority club member I was able to check in early.The parking is a ramp parking we are not able to park our boat/trailer in hotel parking space. Luckily we have a relative in the area and was able to park our boat/trailer in their driveway. Keep this in mind if you are puling a boat/trailer,

We stayed here during Lax Irishfest. The room was pretty icky....with walls pealing in the bathroom. We simply thought it was a VERY average / poor hotel considering we paid almost $200 for the night in Lax. We could have stayed in downtown MSP at the Graves hotel for that.

Last minute stop on a bike trip, had no reservations, they quickly and easily accommodated 8 of us. Excellent amenities, pleasant staff, very clean, large rooms...a little pricey to eat and drink at hotel, but there are plenty of places to walk to. Not crazy about the charge for parking either, thought it should've been included.

I have stayed here 3 times and love the location and the way the employees treat the guests. It is within walking distance of many bars and restaurants. I love going across the street to the coffee shop and going to the river (about a block away) and watching the sun rise or set.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wedding810 Poorly run hotel and horrible customer service
We got a block of rooms for our wedding which took place across the street. We were excited for the location because the majority of our guests were traveling from out of town with young families. Not only was this hotel extremely rude to our guests as they tried to make reservations, but they also messed up our block so that only a few guests were able to stay. As we tried to add more rooms unsuccessfully, the groom got a phone call saying that if we didn't stop "harassing" their employees then our block would be removed completely. As we are dealing with THEIR mistake we are getting accused of harassing their employees. We filed a complaint with corporate who passed it along to this location's manager. We did not hear one word from him or ever receive an apology. It is concerning to me how badly this hotel is lacking customer service skills. This became the most stressful part of our wedding as we had guests calling us every day telling us how rudely they were treated. When family visits us in the future they will NOT be staying at this hotel and we will be sure to pass our experiences on to others as well. Instead working out details leading up to our wedding we were dealing with this very poorly run hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by busmanatkk Great location, BUT
This hotel has a great location and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Inside the building we found it to be dated and worn with many areas to be need of a deep cleaning and general maintenance . Treated and cleaned spots on the hallway carpets were very noticeable. Wallpaper was peeling in public areas and inside the room. The room chair had large stains and the table was worn and had large dings. The laminate was peeling off the side of small counter top. When I went to get ice I found that the ice bucket contained trash from someones coffee. I will say the bed was comfortable. This is not what I would expect from a room of this price. We were very disappointed that this stay did not meet our exceptions of Holiday Inn.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DerekF Decent Room, High Price
The room was ok. There are better places to stay in DT La Crosse, but there isn't a great deal of variety of places to stay. If places fill up, this is a good option.
The room we had included a wonderful view of the alley. This isn't terrible, but obviously the river view would be nicer. It is very close to everything downtown, which is fantastic. Check-In time for a Saturday is 4 PM, which, if you're in town for any sort of event on the weekend, is NOT HELPFUL. Keep this in mind when looking to book a room here. A Huge Plus though is that the staff was able to get me in my room early, around 1 PM. Thanks!
Another major con for our particular room was that the bathroom bath did not work. The shower was functional, but if I had needed to bathe my infant daughter it would not have worked at all. My wife was trying to wash her feet following a day in flip flops and the fact that the bath function didn't work was not appreciated. The bathrooms are very dated and could use a lot of work.
