Hotel has been under renovation/construction for the months. The last two times I've stayed at this hotel, approx 4 months apart, there was ongoing construction that hadn't seemed to progress. Other than workers in the parking lot and hallways the hotel is fine.

I liked that I woke up for work fully rested and ready to start my day and when I returned my room was ready for me to relax the rest of the night.

Although at the time the hotel was going through a renovation. The area I as in was very clean. The temporary fitness center was as nice and well equipped as any I have travelled to despite this construction.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Erniebdog Dirty and Rude
The hotel was under construction upon arrival. No problem but that should have been noted when it was booked. The dirt was everywhere and the room should have been discounted in price because of the mess and problems. When engaging the desk staff about this possibility, they were rude. The breakfast was disgusting both in food quality and dirt level. Way over priced for the service and quality!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sicilian01 Was not informed in advance about total reconstruction in progress.
Hotel fully torn apart in reconstruction with no food and beverage service available, dirty common areas, etc. Poor rating due to lack of notice of construction, yet rooms were still fully priced. Was wife's 50th high school reunion and several couples stayed at this hotel...all with same complaints. No area for common conversation (i.e. bar).

I have stayed at the NU Holiday Inn many, many times and it has always been a pleasurable experience-----This time however, with the construction having shut down the bar, restaurant and business center, it made it awfully inconvenient-----I thought they would have had made alternate plans for each of those things-----Was reassured however, that everything would be back in order when I return in late September

I've stayed at this property several times as they prepare to rebrand. While they are making improvements, it is still messy and they are charging full price. It is nice that they are trying to provide breakfast, but it is not nearly on the same level as other Holiday Inns.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ddobos Great visit despite ongoing renovation
We were a little nervous when we drove up to find the hotel under renovation, however our stay was very nice. Staff were very welcoming and responsive to our needs, the room was clean and quiet and the only real issue was no elevator, but again this was due to renovations. I would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Excellent place to stay between the Twin Cities and Walnut Grove. Staff was very accomodating and even though the facility was undergoing a remodel and upgrade, we felt welcomed and comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by V.V. Quiet, Cool, and Clean
The stay, during the Bavarian Blast, in New Ulm, Mn, was great. There was construction going on, which made some main floor areas temp restricted, but no noise. We stayed in a King room, with desk like table and two chairs, Nice. Free breakfast was good. Pool area was clean, and a big area to gather around. We had a good time. Now we will see what the remodel brings and what we do from here.

We Stay at this Holiday Inn any time we get a chance! This is a great place to be. The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and very helpful! The rooms are neat and clean. If you need anything, the staff is there to help! The Number One reason we come to visit as often as we can, going out of town or coming back thru on our venture home, is the Guy Behind the bar in the evening and thru the night till closing. This guy knows us by name and knows what we like and can always recommend the best meal in town! His name is Hughe*, (I'm sorry if spelt your name wrong.) We are from Central Minnesota and don't visit as often as we like, but this is the best place to stay! ( They didn't tell us they were remodeling, and had to do without water when we first arrived, but it wasn't long and the water was back on! ) We showered, dressed and went to join our favorite bartender! Way to go guys, we will be back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sasha M Staff made great effort to compensate for the pool being under construction.
The pool and gathering spaces of the hotel were under construction during our stay. The hotel made great efforts to compensate for this inconvenience by reducing our nightly rate, offering free vouchers to use other local pools and they even reimbursed us for movie tickets.
Everyone in our large group was impressed by their efforts to satisfy the customer and make our stay a good one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JPG64 Holiday Inn - New Ulm - June 2014
The hotel was under major renovation and yet was charging full price for a less than full experience. The parking lot was an absolute disaster and was made even worse by heavy rains. There was no breakfast included like every other Holiday Inn that I have stayed at. The staff did nothing to go out of their way to help you in the midst of the renovation.

Be prepared for noise and mess of renovation and that pool may not be available. Staff was pleasant. Would have been nice to have a refrigerator and microwave included in price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveS1965 A gem in the making
The hotel was undergoing major renovations at the time of our stay. We could not use the pool area and the outside parking lot and exterior were under construction. When I complained about this the staff, especially Rick the GM were wonderful, helped us find other activities instead of the pool and were truly accommodating. The service was so good we will be back after the remodeling!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MJRX8 Great hotel. The renovations that were the only issue
I thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. The staff is awesome. The restaurant is great. The construction/renovation... not so much. It wasn't so bad that it made me want to check out and go elsewhere but it was definitely an issue sometimes.

We have stayed at your hotel each time we have visited New Ulm over many years. We visit relatives. Overall we enjoy our stays. The most important is that you accommodate our 2 small dogs. Room is spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Restaurant food and service is excellent. The hotel is going thru remodeling so the amenity of the pool and hot tub was not available for 1/2 of our visit. That was our only disappointment. A small fridge in the room would be nice. We will return in the fall and look forward to seeing the remodeled hotel.

We stayed in New Ulm last weekend with a group of friends.
Front desk staff were very efficient and helpful at check in.
I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't some sort of discount or comp (a free drink or appetizer) due to all the remodeling, especially when guests are paying full price for the rooms.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Axelg2 Not terrible, but not bad
When we arrived, the entire parking lot was filled with potholes. Furthermore, these were not even paved, they were just full of rocks. No continental complimentary breakfast, though the waffles at Torge's weren't bad. The doors were all unlocked during the day and workers were constructing quickly and quietly. Thankfully, the sleep was impeccable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Elizabeth W35 Get it together
We won't be staying at the Holiday Inn in New Ulm, MN, any time soon. Pricey compared to other Hotel's in the area. It's under construction, very out dated, in need of a major face lift, junk everywhere. The parking lot is horrible with pot holes filled with rocks. The painters were working on a holiday weekend, in the pool area, so we had to listen to the lift peeping every time they moved it. The hot tube was very noisy, didn't want anyone turning it on. No continental breakfast, no fridge or microwave in our room. Only coffee was offered in the lobby. We ate at Torge's, the food and service was great! My family and I thought it was very tacky that the painters sat in the restaurant drinking beer. Don't care if it's your break or not. I would suggest looking for another hotel for a more relaxing stay!

Fantastic pool and hot tub area. But extremely disappointed that some jerks threw trash and bottles into pool early Saturday morning so we couldn't enjoy the pool on Saturday. Not staff or hotel's fault though. Suggest installing cameras and recording machine so pool area can be monitored and any vandalism can be reviewed by police.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Polo92198 Great Business Stay!
I recently spent 10 nights at the Holiday Inn New Ulm, and had a wonderful, productive stay. Based on other reviews, I was worried about both the construction and an abundance of children interfering with my very long work days -- but if it had not been for the full parking lot, I might have thought I was the only guest in the hotel. My suite was in the back of the hotel, directly up a flight of stairs from the parking lot. I had privacy, quiet, and easy access to the washing machine and ice machine. I used the business center one time; it was completely adequate. The in room fridge (with a sizable freezer!) and microwave, combined with a 24 hour Hy-Vee grocery right next door, helped me to avoid the pitfalls of 'road food'. The front desk staff was wonderfully pleasant, attentive, and accommodating! I have no doubt that had I encountered any problems at all, they would have found a way to make them right.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tob8576 Poor Restaraunt
I booked this room on line with the breakfast to qualify for the Big Win promotion. I was given a $20 voucher for breakfast and was the only one in the Restaraunt when I arrived. I ordered the cottage cheese with fruit, oatmeal 1 egg scrambled and OJ. I had to wait 25 minutes for a small dish of dis colored fruit without cottage cheese and was offered fresh fruit when the waitress saw it but by then she had delivered uncooked oatmeal and cold eggs. I stated I could not eat these items and was told there was no problem because they were on the voucher. I was not offered another voucher or refund. I am a Platinum member and was stunned by this experience.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by camn More appropriate for families than business travelers
This hotel is strongly family-oriented (large family pool is at the center of the hotel); but as a business traveler I was disappointed in both the service and the cleanliness. If I had been with my children I would have been content because the environment let's kids be kids.
Multiple times I had to hunt down help as no one was at the front desk during regular business hours. I found the stairwells to be unpleasant - food stuck to the carpet, etc. In addition, in both of my recent stays the hotel card key failed to work, which led me back to the front desk to get the card fixed, at which point I couldn't find help at the desk....
I would recommend this for an informal family stay or for a kids birthday party, but I would not for business travelers.
