Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SkyhawkN Great Offsite (Close) and affordable location outside OshKosh for EAA
Great Town, Great People, Great historic district. You MUST stop at Fatzo's Sub and Pizza, Downtown Manitowoc. Subs/Hoagies are HUGE!!
This H.I. site is great for folks late making their reservations to EAA Oshkosh. Also seemed like the perfect venue for company conferences.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RegularGuest2013 Good but could be better
First, I'd like to say that I stay at this hotel once a month, so the following comments are meant to help you fix some of the issues you have to make my stays better.
The staff at this hotel, especially Patty & Dave at the Front Desk, and Leann at the bar are awesome, however, I won't even drink in the bar if Paul is there.
The facility is falling apart. They've promised a complete remodelling for over a year now, and it never seems to happen. The carpeting in the hallways is a hazard. Management needs to decide if they are going to fix the place up, or let it fall down on it's own. They also need to do something with the restaurant. The same old menu get's pretty old after you've stayed there a few times. The Chef's appear to be talented, so how about you let them come up with a special of the day, or perhaps a whole new menu once in a while? Also, WIFI in this hotel is terrible. It drops out constantly. If you expect to lure in business travellers, you need to make this a top priority.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CharleyB16 Not sure how they maintain the franchise tag
The building looks nice from the outside but goes downhill from there. The room smelled of smoke and there was no water pressure. When I opened one of the exterior doors, the handle pulled off. Someone had ordered room service for dinner and the leftover tray of food sat in the hallway all night. This hotel also lacks the meal or drink discounts that many other Holiday Inn's have. Breakfast cannot be done on a budget and the restaurant was understaffed.
Staff in general was friendly however, I would recommend staying somewhere else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BNLN1 Friendly staff
Overall, had a great stay. The staff is some of the nicest people I have ever encountered in a hotel. The man that checked us in was helpful, accommodating, and friendly. Pros: Requested and received a late check-out (2 pm), free WIFI, coupon for Starbucks, beds were comfortable. Cons: Room was out-dated, and I didn't love the fact that the room overlooked the central lobby as opposed to the outdoors. Overall - staff and service make this a great hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OctGirl Great service and quiet stay
Clean and quiet!!! Staff were friendly and accomodating. However, guests are allowed to smoke right outside of all of the doors. I am in Manitowoc for business and heading out in the mornings I have to walk through a wall of smoke to get to my vehicle and then smell like I myself had been smoking. I work in healthcare and do NOT appreciate that smell lingering on me and/or my dress clothes. To be perfectly honest if this hotel was not preferred by my employer I would stay elsewhere for that simple fact. But, overall a quiet place to relax and sleep.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by burger24 Convenient location and great staff
Corporate rate is hard to beat.
Huge hotel starting to really show wear. Needs an upgrade (signs say it is on the way)
Coffee shop with Starbucks products in the lobby is a real treat.
Employees are extremely friendly and helpful.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dingmo Time for the Bulldozer!
This has to be one of the oldest Holiday Inns in the US! The rooms are dark, lack plug-ins and have a musty feel (esp. interior rooms without windows to outside.). At least they compensate by having very high rates and an outdated 24 hr cancellation policy.
I travel to Manitowoc about once a month on business - this is a hotel I won't go back to again. Unfortunately, there aren't any other IHG properties close; probably the only reason this one stays open.
Great location - I say bring on the bulldozer and put up a new Holiday Inn Express!

The plumbing in the rooms is in dire need of updating. The faucets fall apart, the shower faucets get stuck and are difficult to operate.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sojen March Snow
Always been a good place to stay...But they were unprepared for the snow storm at the end of February... I would have expected that the parking lot be plowed out by 6:30~7:00 am...or in process. However, I had to bust through the 3' of drifted snow behind my car...No biggie but got stuck in the bank behind the row of cars behind me. Front desk lady was not to be found for 5~10 minutes and no shovel for me to dig my car out. When she radioed the plow guy, who was someplace else at that time, even he didn't have a shovel (this is Northern Wisconsin btw I would think they know enough to have a shovel or 2 on hand). Eventually got unstuck but I feel this all could have been avoided if the parking lot was cleaned out in a timely manner.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pharm28 Decent hotel, needs updating
No problems, hotel appears to be in early stages of planning a remodel which would improve my rating. I usually stay at Hilton properties and couldn't believe they don't even offer a free cup of coffee in the morning ... They have a cafe on site, but you have to pay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dick70 Comfy rooms but poor dining
The room was comfortable. The carpeting in the halls were deteriating. The carpeting wasn't taught in the halls. The drinks were excellent. The food was a different story. The mashed potatoes were very lumpy as though they weren't completly cooked and then mashed . The chunks were very big and a lot of them. It waw hard to get them out of the bowl. The turkey was hard to cut with your knife and the chicken wasn't very tasty. So my experience was very mediocre. I understand that they are going to be remodeled. I hope soon and I hope they do something with the kitchen.

I can not wait to come back to see how the renovation/up-date went. I believe it will be very pretty when it is done.

My room was readied earlier than regular check-in time, which was a great advantage for the amount of items I had with me for the weekend events. The food was delicious and plentiful! The staff were courteous, helpful, willing to go above and beyond their job descriptions. Jennifer was wonderful to work with prior to and during our event and usually available immediately should a need or question arise. Thanks to all for a grand stay and event!

They do not have a breakfast here.
Close to lots of places to eat.
For the price that it was, I would stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by captaindan166 Poor Facility
Usually I've nothing but good to say but this isn't one of those times. This facility, most of all the room, was not one I would recommend to anyone. The room felt extremely musty and humid. The A/C was noisy & in ill repair and did nothing to help the environmental condition in the room. This is one of those stays that I thought seriously about selecting another facility.
My review of the room does not reflect upon your staff, they were as helpful as one would expect.

Had problems with need for oxygen and with goes with it...walking etc. Staff went out of way to help in a crowd of 400 plus people in serving line and making sure we had everything including a place to plug in. Front desk best I have seen and we do at least three trips a year.
