The location of the hotel was perfect in downtown LaCrosse. This was the first time I ventured in the downtown area--very fun --lots of restaurant choices. It's very close to the park and river. The weather was beautiful so we got to spend time in the park; took lots of photos and had a great time.

Not your typical Holiday Inn Express. This one has old world character and charm. Warm and inviting lobby. Great location in downtown. Easy walking to restaurants, shopping and bars.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JE38 Soooo dirty
I chose the Holiday Inn downtown La Crosse, WI because of the great location and the moderate price. I expected a basic, clean room with a coffee maker and refrigerator, no extra frills necessary.
Upon arriving I had to sign a waiver saying we wouldn't smoke in the room, which is no problem b/c we don't smoke. As soon as we walked in the room we noticed it reeked of old cigarettes and dampness,

Wi-fi extremely weak all weekend. I tried it at two in the morning, two in the afternoon and other times as well in the two days I was there. Couldn't maintain a connection. I finally resorted to using the computer in the business center in order to get on the internet.
Parking is a real problem. Very small (maybe twenty spaces) parking lot. Hotel has parking in parking garage around the corner. Not very convenient

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jcossey Outdated and Worn
Had problems with the room upon check in. Staff was helpful, friendly and quickly handled the problems. Rooms are outdated and worn. Chairs with holes in the fabric, worn carpet, scratched and dented furniture. Room was also very damp/dank. The lighting was dim and very yellow. Wifi was slow or non-existent. If the hotel is upgraded I would love to stay here again. The staff and the nice location are the highlights of the hotel, the rooms are not.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ttkkaaa Good location
Nice hotel but overpriced. The location must warrant that high of a price. The $5 a night parking is ridiculous, there should be no charge for parking as this isn't downtown in a big city. The cost of the room should cover the parking.
The best thing about the hotel was the location to all the downtown attractions. The covered walkway from parking ramp to hotel is nice but then you have to carry all your luggage down many stairs.

I had gift bags delivered to guests upon checking in, several did not get delivered which made for akward situations. I was also charged for this service, but at a discounted price. This was the only hotel which charged me for this service and the only one which failed to get them all delivered.

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.
