Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 89 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by No different from the rest!!! Okay hotel just off the interstate. Manager was friendly. Stay here about 5 times a year. I'll be back. February 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very acceptable All good. This pretty much what I expect from HI Express. Room price is at the high end of the reasonable range, but not necessarily outside the range. I would stay here again. February 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service Service of the front desk and coffee area staff was excellent. February 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great room Great room nice and clean staff was very good and parking area was safe and breakfast area was clean February 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DeForest, WI I have been staying at this hotel for business for the last four months. For its price and amenities, it is a good value. The staff are very friendly. During the polar vortex where temperature dropped to -20, the rental car did not start. The women that runs the breakfast room helped out by assisting in jump starting the car. The only faults that I have would be the lack of healthier foods for breakfast (more fruit) and the TV service. The TV service was okay before, they had switched to HD service from Charter; and now the channels selection and quality are worse. January 29, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Loud popping noise coming from heater unit Noising neighboring rooms. Popping sounds from heater kept me up at night. January 26, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Too warm The overall experience was good. One suggestion would be to lower the temp in eating area and lobby. Breakfast lady was awesome! January 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel - Cheap Pillows I always love my stay at the Holiday Inn, during road trips. It's the cinnamon rolls that keep me coming back. The pillows at this particular hotel were a little below standard, but everything else was top notch. January 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by my over-night stay last year when we stayed here every thing was very good. We preferably stay here because this hotel excepts dogs. It was just very noisy due to the wedding party January 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dog and people friendly. We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express near DeForest, WI. The staff was friendly, courteous, and very professional. We chose this location due to the easy on/off of the interstate. We were pleasantly surprised to find people were allowed to bring their dogs. (We had left ours at home.) We will definitely stay at the DeForest, Wisconsin location again. Next time we will bring our dogs along. It is nice to know there are affordable places that are dog friendly. We will definitely let all of our family and friends know that Holiday Inn Express is pet friendly and people friendly too. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Dec. 2013 January 5, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bk stay did not like the sink area outside of the bathroom and right by the door entrance. room was small for the cost. should of been more around the 65-75 per night stay January 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel all-around Had a great stay while visiting relatives for Christmas. Room and common areas were very clean, front desk and housekeeping staff were very friendly, beds were comfortable, Wi-Fi worked great. Will definitely return next year. January 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Passed through on Holiday travel We stayed during the drive "home from Grandpa's house" just before Christmas, just ahead of, and behind, a couple storms. I was pretty worn out from the road. Friendly, welcoming Staff. Clean, comfortable room. Was especially thankful for the employees looking after us on a Holiday. December 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Beds & Relaxing As a business manager, I travel a lot and stay at a variety of nice motels. I would have to say that the my recent stay at the Deforest, WI Holiday Inn Express was one of the best motels I have stayed at this year. The staff was welcoming, easy check in and check out, nice breakfast. The bed comfort was excellent and the room was quiet, clean and very comfortable. I was also impressed how quiet the heating and cooling units was. It made for a peaceful, quiet, relaxing and restful night. If I travel in the Madison area again, this motel will be my first choice place. November 10, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nice staff need biscuts but other then that everything was great October 18, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great night's sleep Mattress was comfy, and this hotel had the most comfortable pillows I have had at a property in quite some time. On the minus side, the bathroom fan was noisy as others have stated, and for some reason the screws holding the iron / ironing board to the wall let loose during the night. Obviously a freak occurence which could happen anywhere, so no points deducted. Older property, so not a lot of electrical outlets available for todays devices. Not a lot of dining options in the immediate area (fast food only), but close enought ot the East Towne area for most people. Recommended. October 14, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wedding stay Didn't appreciate the added $60 a night from the normal rate and the refusal to give me the wedding group rate. Room smelled like cigarettes. Front desk crew not friendly but rest of staff were very kind. October 8, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Keep going Teeny, tiny room, one sink in bathroom, only fast food nearby. Manager does not honor seniors or military. Keep going to next exit. October 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeForest Holiday Inn Express We love this hotel, located in a very convenient location. The place is clean, the staff is great and the breakfast area is well attended. Our perfect "pit stop" when we travel between Minneapolis and Columbus, Ohio. September 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One of my favorite hotels I stay out over 120 nights a year and this is one of my favorite hotels for stays in Wisconsin. Good location, good staff. September 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Room The room was comfortable and met our needs. Our grandkids love coming over to use the pool. The room off the pool made for a good socializing area. September 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Front desk exceptional Great staff, very friendly and nice. Good value for the money. I stay here 4 times a year for business and each time the staff and facility is excellent. September 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Beds and rooms. Very comfortable room and bed. We were returning from vacation and Stopped short of the Madison area [Game day]. September 19, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by maid service room was clean and comfortable but the maid did not leave any soap or shampoo. When we asked the front desk she was polite but did not know where to find the products she had to call her boss, we finally had the product two hours later. total experience seemed to have a lack of detail. Not the norm for HI Express. September 16, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tired Rooms, Good Breakfast This Holiday Inn Express is not up to the same level of comfort as others I have stayed in recently. The room configuration is poor. The bathroom sink and vanity are in the main area of the room. This is not convenient when you don't want to disturb others sleeping. The light /fan combo in the bathroom sounded like a jet airplane. The sofa and chair were soiled and dirty looking. The bed looked like it had the choice of firm and soft pillows, but all the pillows were the same lumpy old pillows. On the positive side, the breakfast was above average. There was a nice selection of hot and cold choices. The breakfast attendant kept everything well stocked. I really can't recommend staying at this hotel. The room is just not that clean or comfortable. September 9, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing Great staff, value and nice place to stay. Bed was comfortable and staff was nice and attended to my needs. September 6, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great bedding and room was very clean. I enjoyed my short stay at this HI Express and I would definitely stay here again. Staff were polite and friendly. Room was very clean. Price was a little bit high for the area, but otherwise no issues. September 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service. Good beds We go to Mayo Clinic every two months and always stay at this Holdiday Inn Express. Great hotel with wonderful service and people to work with. It is clean and great for a night's stay. Cheese House across the street is a great place to stop and eateries are closeby, August 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice, clean rooms. Very nice rooms. I like the fact that breakfast is included with the price of the room. Very convenient. August 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing breakfast and service by Deb! Our family stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on July 21. The room was very comfortable and it was nice to have a fridge and microwave available. There was a fan in the bathroom, which is great for showers. There are many hotels that don't have a fan which I never understand... A check out time of noon sure was nice so the kids had a chance to get in one more swim. The pool was set at a comfortable temperature too. The kids tend to end up freezing in the pool after a short while at most hotels. I know they would choose Holiday Inn Express in DeForest over other hotels. The best part of our stay was breakfast! This breakfast was steps above your typical continental breakfast. Definitely a great value! There were several hot items available too, such as eggs, bacon, biscuits & gravy, pancakes, and even cinnamon rolls. The breakfast worker Deb provided the best breakfast service I have ever seen! She hustled with a smile on her face the entire time. I have been at many hotels where the breakfast service has been quite poor, to the point that the worker acted as if we were ruining their day by being there. Not Deb! Other than checking out, Deb was the last hotel staff we spoke to prior to checking out. I will be sure to return to DeForest's Holiday Inn Express when in the area knowing that I will receive exceptional service if Deb is working. Thank you for a great stay! August 12, 2013
