Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tegan7 Pleasant surprise
I had to make a last minute booking in Rockford, and had no clue what to expect. I was greeted very warmly at the front desk, and had everything explained about my benefits very clearly. the room was just what I had ordered, and it led to a very restful sleep.
Breakfast the next morning was generous, quick, hot, and good. All along, I met very friendly staff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DECESARE Comfortable bed and very good staff.
The bed was very comfortable for us though my husband likes it a little firmer. The Quality of the Room is not what it was in the past when we use to frequent Holiday Inn. The Heat was working very good in our room but there was a cold draft all around the back of our Heater so when we got near it to adjust the temperature your feet and hands felt a cold drafty wind. Also I wish they carried a hand and bath soap like White Dial or Marble Dial that had some antibacterial soap for hands and there really was no little bigger Bath antibacterial Soap which would help for winter illnesses.
Please whoever is the Manager go and Inspect your Holiday Inns because they are not the Top of the Line they use to be. Exercise Room and Pool are not appropriately Located for the Hotel guests to find easily. Thanks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paula915 Great Beds & Pillows!
We were greeted with such friendliness as we popped in for a room during freezing rain. After driving over 500 miles we were extremely excited to find such comfortable beds and pillows. The pillow cases were even labeled "Firm" and "Medium". I was greatly in need of a good nights sleep and Holiday Inn Rockford delivered. Even the heater was quiet! Kudos to the hotel staff who worked quickly to de-ice the sidewalks & loading area to provide safety for guests. I would definitely stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gramma Nice and convenient
We stay here when we visit family in Belvidere...it's close and clean but our favorite part is the Scoreboard sports bar and the Hoffman House restaurant ...they are both pleasant and the food is excellent. We ate breakfast in the restaurant , had drinks and munchies during the football game in the sports bar and took dinner to our room. All of these meals were very good. We will stay here again for sure.

We stay here every year as our company Christmas party is here.
Always a pleasant experience. One complaint though, Pillows
are not comfortable for me as they are way too tall and hurt my neck.
Other than that,we always have enjoyed our stay. Thanks
to Kristin and the rest of the staff.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PreshusGem Look elsewhere
Stayed in room 607. Dim lighting in bathroom and drafty windows. Bed was too soft for my liking. No free breakfast. Needs some updating. Heating unit is loud. After I came out of the shower, the mirrors were fogged up like normal, but there was a message revealed in the mirrors. So, if housekeeping isn't cleaning the mirrors properly then it makes me wonder what else isn't really being cleaned properly? I only stayed here because it was the host hotel of a body building competition that my cousin was participating in.

The stay including room, service and food was average. The hotel could be kept cleaner, especially the lobby, elevator and hallways.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DapG Comfortable bed, but staff needs more training
When I called to make reservations, the woman answering the phone put me on hold for a long time. After a long wait, a young man answered and suggested I call the reservation line because they were busy checking in a large group. Why didn't the woman who first answered the phone tell me that?
The bed was comfortable and I did sleep well.
When I went to take a shower, I couldn't figure out how to turn the shower on so I tried to call the front desk. The phone didn't work!! I called the front desk from my cell phone to get the shower instructions and report the useless phone.
I never received any apology for the long wait for reservations or for the broken phone!
The staff needs more training. They are not up to the usual Holiday Inn quality with their people skills.

Good Experience. I would stay at this location again. The Hoffman House is a nice addition to this location. Your sister hotels Holiday Inn Express are new, up and coming with a fresh look, modern and new. I noticed the Holiday Inn locations are older and need some remodeling. The service was great. The location was perfect for those visiting Rockford. Lots of locals visit this location and that speaks for it self!!!!! If you visit this location try the home made bread at the Hoffman House. Out of this world!!!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KLC2013 Musty smells and drippy windows!
We were visiting a college for my son and stayed at this Holiday Inn October 4th-6th. The lobby smelled musty and there was a horrible sewer odor by the elevators. The room was so humid that the carpet felt damp (so gross to walk on). The window had so much condensation on the inside and dripped all night keeping me awake no matter how we adjusted the room temperature. The paint around the window appeared to have water damage and was rusty looking so obviously not a one time problem. We are planning on trying other hotels in the area if my son ends up going to school in Rockford.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PhoJoe Nice room w/ a dark bathroom
This is a large Holiday Inn with many amenities like an attached bar and restaurant, nice pool and a larger fitness room. The staff is very friendly.
Our room was very nice with a comfortable bed. Our only gripe was the darkness of the bathroom and its lack of a fan. There is one light in the bathroom located above the sink. With the shower curtain closed, you're basically showering in darkness. Also, the bathroom gets very foggy in a short time with the lack of a fan.
I'd recommend this Holiday Inn based on its staff and beds.

My family has stayed in this hotel for a weekend in 2012 and a weekend in 2013. MRL soccer weekends. Upon first entry both times, the room had a musty smell. I complained to the desk, but as usual they had no other rooms available. I will stay away from this hotel next time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JT84 Not a full service hotel
The elevators were very slow and always backed up during the day with cleaning carts. No resturant and breakfast didn't open until 7am, plus there was an additional charge. Not kid friendly.

I choose hotel based on stars and reviews, was very disappointed. It has wall paper and boarder from the 80's. The carpet in the elevator stunk like a wet dog. The check out staff were rude and of no help?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Coldguest Comfortable bed but.....
We were here for a wedding over the past weekend. The room itself was okay and seemed relatively clean however the carpet as you walked in was extremely "sticky" in front of the mirror. Your feet physically stuck to the floor so my assumption was that it was hairspray. The carpet did not appear soiled but just felt sticky. Overall, the beds were comfortable and the linens were clean. The bathroom was clean but the stopper in the tub was completely pulled out and I had to repair it myself prior to taking a bath. It had a 3-4" tube like thing that needed to be stuffed back down the drain and so I fought with it for several minutes before it would go back into place. The water was lukewarm at best and so I froze throughout my entire bath, I'm a hot water loving person myself so I wasn't fond of this experience. Elevators are BEYOND slow and stop on every floor. Count on taking the stairs or waiting awhile. I generally do not write bad reviews but the combination of factors made for a semi-frustrating stay.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and each time has been a great experience. The staff is always friendly and helpful.
During this trip I stayed at 2 Crown plaza hotels in other states that did not measure up to this Holiday Inn.
The staff and management at the Rockford Holiday Inn could be a usefull resource to provide training to those other hotels.

Without the corporate discount, would have been disappointed. Overall sufficient, but not overly comfortable stay. Room was non smoking, but clearly there had been years before the rule had been put in place (my colleague had the same experience). entire first floor smelled damp.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jason3333 Very hospitable, but...
The staff was very pleasant, but the room was not to the standard expected. My wife indicated she is not willing to stay at another Holiday Inn because:
1. The room smelled like someone had smoked in it prior and/or dirty.
2. The carpet was moist/wet maybe even lending to the smell.
Seems trivial to me and possibly to others, but these points were extremely important to her.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fogy Bad shower; mediocre restaurant service
Shower valve was defective. I was only able to get water slightly warmer than full cold.
The attitude of the restaurant staff has deteriorated since a couple of years ago. Dining here (I have stopped here for a number of years) used to be an enjoyable experience. Now it seems that no one is concerned whether the customer enjoys it or not.
