Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chaz914 Good Stay, but ask for room away from "porch" if early to bed
Good stay. All went well. Good experiences with staff. I wish we had been informed that the "porch" would host outdoor performances during our stay so that we might have had an option for a room on the opposite side of the building. Otherwise beds and sleep were good. Food and service good. Pleased with the stay.

It was a very nice room with a whirlpool in it, in all fairness I did not use it. The controls on the air conditioner did not work, the room was between and 76-79 degrees, no cooler.
There was a musty smell from behind the head end of the bed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hiran1228 Excellent Hotel with Friendly Staff and Excellent Cellphone Reception in the Hotel
I love the hotel, in my room all 5 Bars & LTE on Verizon. It would be nice if Holiday Inn offered Free Breakfast, and TV and Internet would be nice if AT&T U-verse provides TV and Internet and Telephone Service. I would like Holiday Inn to also do some redecorating by expanding the Fitness Room and the Pool.

Do not stay here, the hotel has poor parking with limited access and front desk staff was not informative as to award point useage , Need added security on exterior of hotel base on downtown location. Each parking level shoud have acess to elevator.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Shelly74 Not what I expected!
Very disappointed in this hotel, expected it to be much better! A chair in our room had a big stain and there was a big tear in the bed skirt. The hot tub was unbearably hot and small, there was also a bunch of floaties in the hot tub. Only one elevator in the hotel. No microwave or refridgerator! Requested queen size beds, but they looked like doubles!

The value of the hotel has been greatly reduced by eliminating free breakfast; I was very disappointed. I travel a lot and I will not stay here again nor will I recommend it to others.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brooks87 Nice Lobby - Room a little dated
Overall this is a nice hotel. Located well in the Business area of Muskegon. Rooms are somewhat dated but the lobby area seemed recently updated. Price was good compared to other area properties.

Had a great time with my husband here. There was a lot of fun things to do nearby and the front desk agents were very knowledgeable. I cannot remember the name of the woman who checked us in but she was super friendly and really nice about checking us in a little early. This is a great place and I will be back again with my husband and children.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bertie Girl Very nice hotel
I was in town for a wedding and it was a very enjoyable experience at this Holiday Inn. I would recommend it to anyone. One thing, either the previous guest had set the alarm to go off at midnight or the cleaning people hit the button by mistake while cleaning, but when that alarm went off at midnight I was definitely upset.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tallone Beds exceeded expectations. Great service
Just stepping out the door, housekeeping asked if I needed anything. This was a huge help with my leaky tub/wet floor and getting costumes to dressing rooms! I was in a frazzled state and a housekeeper came to my rescue! Above and beyond job description for him! I told the desk, they did not have to fix the tub right away but they did anyway. Oh, I forgot. I called for a wake up call two mornings in a row and did not receive it either morn. The desk said they would check into it.

Not worth the money you pay. Pool and hotel isn't the best. No continental breakfast again for how much you pay. Some gross things in the bathroom. Coffee pot and cups in bathroom next to toilet. Not very sanitary!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sandray Comfortable room and bed.
The only thing missing would have been a room safe and a refrigerator. When we go on long drives we like to take snacks and cold drinks with us and coolers loose their impact overnight. This was only an overnight get-away for us.

Why go to the commercial area of Norton Shores when downtown is closer to the water and has a quaint atmosphere to relax and/or celebrate some!? I always prefer The Harbor area and Holiday Inn provides all the necessities of comfort and fun. The Bartender is always top notch and the waitstaff helpful and family like.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RAMBI Staff don't care
Front Desk staff seem to be the only people that give any service at this Hotel. We had one bar person that looked at empty glasses didn't remove them or ask if we wanted a drink' she was so busy trying to look busy it was sad. This person was GETTY. Justin was so busy trying to take food orders and keep the folks at the bar happy. No one seems to care. Breakfast staff are just as nasty, waitress did like the tip we gave her so she throw it down on her work station. We were served coffee and think $1.25 is a good tip for 2 cups of coffee. STAFF NEED A WAKE-UP CALL. YOU HAVE GREAT FRONT DESK STAFF ONE GOOD BAR PERSON THE REST NEED TO LEARN GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE WE ALSO HAD TO PUT UP WITH NOISY KIDS A WET CARPET IN ROOM AND THE WORST FOOD AT A HOLIDAY INN TO DATE

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 room are pricey for what you get but top notch staff.
The hotel is nice and clean. The beds are ok disappointed they got rid of the nice soft pillows they had last year. They also stopped the free breakfast which was a let down also. But their staff is always great and friendly. They really try to go out off their way to please you. Their phones in the room don't always work like there supposed to. If it wasn't for the staff and how clean everything is I would not recommend. But the staff is wonderful and hotel is very clean.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Irongirl12 Staff good, hotel not so great
Upon arriving the front desk staff was very professional and kind, and quickly got us taken care of. Once we got to our room, the experience went downhill. Our shower left much to be desired (shower not clean, a PVC pipe for a towel bar in the shower, holes in the shower where the PVC pipe was placed, a frayed and torn shower curtain), and there were pink stains along the bathroom sink counter. The toilet lid and seat were left up (although it looked like it might have been cleaned). Not the best first impression.
The first night we stayed, we didn't get much sleep. Not only could we hear our neighbors through the walls, we could also hear every person that walked down the hallway (our door didn't seem to fully shut all the way, as there was always a gap between the door and front of the door jam). While this IS an older hotel and it can be hard to sound proof, we thought there might be a little more effort to make the walls somewhat sound-proof.
As far as amenities go, many other Holiday Inns still offer a complimentary breakfast, and many offer refrigerators in the room. Neither were available. However, the pool and hot tub were nice.
We frequently stay at Holiday Inns (they're our brand of choice when traveling), but this Holiday Inn was sub-par, and left a lot to be desired. It was not on par with the typical Holiday Inn chain.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DM300 Power Outage Weekend
I do understand that things were very difficult - checked in with no power, first room key that I received - went in the room and it was already occupied, next room, key did not work - had to find an employee to let me in my room - elevators went out, had to use steps from the 6th floor -
spoke with an employee the following Monday and was advised there would be no charge for my stay -- nothing happened with than - call and spoke with a manager Thursday she advised me she would make sure my credit card was credited for my stay -- again nothing happened - called and spoke with the manager again who assured me she requested processing for my credit and she would email me the confirmation - as of this date still no email or credit - someone needs to resolve this - unhappy IHG member - difficult to answer the "guest rating" when the power was out and could not see or use anything

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RoadWarriorAZ Not a great experience
This is an older hotel property, which in itself is not the reason for my lukewarm experience. When entering the building from the parking lot, the facility appears to be under renovation and there were concrete blocks near the threshold for no apparent reason. There was a band in the bar playing so loud that I could barely hear the front desk clerk. I had to ask about options for Gold members and was offered either a drink coupon OR a bottle of water OR points--that seems a little chintzier than other properties I've been at. When I got to my room, it was so overheated that I turned on the air conditioning. When I opened the curtains, small spiders rained down from the upper track, along with a couple ladybugs. Ewww. I didn't really spend enough time in the room to warrant moving, and I managed to kill all the spiders on my own. (No more spiders on the second day, but I left the curtains alone.)

Our group consisted of about 50+ men for a men's church convention. Most stayed here. Their were no complaints from any of the men. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

Our First trip to the area. The staff made some nice recomendations to local hot spots. Our room was spotless.
What was truly amazing about our stay was how the Hotel and your staff were able to POWER through a city wide black out. We were amazed they were able to pull off an exceptional Prime Rib dinner for our 150 Hungry Lions Club members in the dark. It was above and beyond service by everyone. Thank goodness for candles. The power was off for 20 hours and we still had a hot coffee and breakfast in the morning. Bravo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lion Bill Outstanding service
We visited this hotel for a convention. Spent 3 nights and 4 days with nothing but outstanding service. It is our understanding that this property is under new management. We were concerned after reading some of the former comments, but when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised by the overall friendliness and courtesy of the staff. Saturday night could have been a disaster, as we had a rather bad storm go through. Power was lost and the hotel staff managed a first class banquet in the dark. We ate by candlelight and the food was delicious. Our entire convention went off without a problem. Every one of us had a great time. Kudos to the Muskegon Holiday Inn staff. They went the extra mile to make it happen. Everyone from Mia at check in to Sarah at checkout are top notch, friendly, and helpful. Highly recommend this hotel.
