Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IanJ52 First time in Texas
My wife and I stayed here while visiting friends in Tyler. Our stay was 2 nights then 1 night. On both occasions the welcome we received was friendly and efficient, being acknowledged as priority club members. The second stay, we were upgraded to an executive suite.
On both occasions we found the rooms to be clean and comfortable .
We had read about the renovations taking lace and the first room we stayed in had a big gap round the door frame.
The service in the restaurant was good as was the choice.
Overall I would recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2italians Fab location and best breakfast buffet in town!
We have always enjoyed our stay with this hotel. It is so conveniently located to fabulous restaurants, many you can walk over to. The Sales team, front desk staff and hotel team in general are so friendly and very accommodating. The restaurant staff and its manager are so welcoming and the breakfast buffet is exceptionally good. By far, this is one of the most pet friendly hotels ever. We will always return and recommend!

Everything was good with my stay. But, my credit card still has charges on my acct. I check out on Sunday 10/27/13 and it is now Wednesday 10/30/13. My rooms were paid for in cash. I have called the Holiday inn 3 times and the charges are still showing on my account. I ask that someone look into this. I was charged immediately so, why should it take a week to get a credit?

The staff at the HI Tyler South Broadway are genuinely concerned about you. Everyone from W.D. who smiles with warmth when he greets you, to the housekeepers who try to make your stay away from home as pleasant as possible, are incredible.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mer77 Always an excellent experience
The front desk staff at this location is always wonderful! I travel between Tyler and Longview and would rather drive back and forth everyday just to stay at this hotel. They are friendly and helpful and I often ask them to make my next reservation as I'm checking out from my current stay. I simply give them my dates and they take care of everything emailing me shortly after to confirm. Stephanie is fantastic always, and the gentleman in the evening (I'm sorry I didn't catch his name) He was there last week 10/21 I checked in at around 6pm. He was so welcoming and friendly, He was multitasking because it was very busy, but I never felt rushed or unimportant as the guest. Thank you to your entire team!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by texman Check in told no points. No water on second night no hot water on third night ???
Upon checking in on 10/13/13 was told i would not get my points because my company gets a cheap rate.Well that does not help me. On 10/14/13 got in from work and had no water for hours. Then on 10/15/13 absolutely no hot water at all. So if u dont like getting your points or taking a shower this place is ok. I guess being Platinum Elite means nothing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky68 A good nights sleep.
I was given my room keys at check-in and proceeded to the 2nd floor to drop off my luggage in the room only to find that neither room key I was given would work. I had to carry my stuff ( laptop, luggage, hanging clothes) all back down the levator and get another key. These keys worked. As a platinum member. I thought I might get a room upgrade but no such luck. The room was clean and the bed was nice. I had requested a pool view room and was in a room that you could see the pool but I was in the corner of the couirtyard and the view was not great and the pool was green. Having stayed at other Holiday Inn hotels prior I was always offered breakfast from the Hotel at no additional charge for being a platinum member. Here they offered me a coupon for one free item from the "pantry". I asked about breakfast and was given a free breakfast each morning and was happy that the lady at the desk did that for me. I also booked my room at the best available rate and as i was checking in heard a person get a rate at about $40 less than I paid and he was not a priority club member. I did spend money in the bar each night and will say the first night service was ok the next night not so much. The girl was texting while she worked and even left the area for a little while. Not very professional. Overall my stay was okay. The room was clean and the bed was nice. Shower was good and the water stayed hot.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kayaks Handicapped & breakfast buffet
I was very disappointed that you did not have proper accommodations for handicapped people. I needed a wheelchair accessible room & shower but after calling several times and being assured I had one when we got to the room it wasn't correct. Couldn't get another room cause the hotel was full.
The breakfast buffet was just horrible. The only thing that was good was the waffle but that is because I ordered it fresh. The scrambled eggs available were RUNNY. The sausage patties were like hockey pucks. The potatoes and gravy were cold.
If you don't need a special room and you go somewhere else to eat then I would give this hotel an average star. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend a stay there.

This is our 2nd year in a row to stay at this hotel during the Scott Firefighter Challenge. Great proximity to everything. The wonderful Breakfast buffet was excellent way to start our day. Both times everything was great. Looking forward to next year!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BKC001 Not great, not bad... so-so
I would wait until the remodeling gets done before staying here. Hopefully they decide to put a little money into the rooms as well. My bathtub had some pretty serious drainage issues.
Staff was friendly and courteous.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by chelsea30 NOT ABLE TO USE BALCONY
The reason I chose this hotel was because I knew they had balconies. So when we got to our nothing special room I saw a sticker on the balcony door with a lock. They said they are not able to unlock the door for insurance purposes. We then someone should have told us that. What the heck would I want with a pool view if I cant even step foot on the balcony. I could have gotten a much better room elsewhere that had all the amenities I was looking for. DO NOT RECOMMEND. Also there where lots of dings/holes in the walls. They really need to do some maintenance work!!!

I really have to commend the staff at this Hotel. Good eye contact, greets you anywhere you are. The staff saw me on a walker and carried my bag for me and helped me with the elevators.
The bed pillows were very comfortable, as well as the bed. Room very clean. Bathroom updated and quaint and clean. If you get breakfast or purchase it WELL worth the money! I enjoyed the fresh made omelet stuff with several options. HI got it going!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by stateemployee0001 just ok
I was given a room at the back of the hotel. the staff didn't know whether the pool is open so that i could walk through. i drove to the back. the key couldn't open the door. the door of a service room closeby was open and i knocked. someone came out and helped to open the door. there's a dead beetle right on the floor close to the sink. he said the town was 'visited' by many beetles recently. when i presented my state tax exempt form, i was asked for a state employment ID with photo. i was never asked for that anywhere else. no free breakfast for the no-so-cheap price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by luckylwsw Avoid until they COMPLETE/FINISH all upgrades
I reserved this room for 2 nights (king w/pull out sofa) for myself, wife, and 3 small children. When I arrived they told me they do not have that type of room any longer because some guests decided to stay longer and offered me 2 doubles. I told them no that would not work and why would they let someone stay longer without reservation when I reserved it. The manager was nice and offered the king suite which had a seperate living room with fold out sofa and I asked why they would offer that in the first place especially me being an Elite Platinum member (I spend a lot of money at IHG).
All was good till we got to the room and the key card would not work. I had to go down everytime and have the room key re coded and it still took multiple tries to get the door open. The shower had a shower head on a vertical adjustment pole and it would not stay up, it kept falling to the bottow at waist level. The A/C said adjust temp with thermostat on the opposite wall and after searching for a while, I called front desk and they said it is on the unit itself. We couldn't get the room temp comfortable (either hot or cold). I could tell the mattresses were not new. The fridge was not cold. The wifi did not work. I could go on and on. You can tell it is an old location and they are trying to upgrade it, but they need to do some QC work. When we checked out a day early the girl at the desk wrote my room # and name on a list and I asked what it was and she said it was the complaint list. I would say consider another hotel for at least the next 6 months while they finish remodel. 8/13

The hotel is in a great place in Tyler close to many restaurants, walking/jogging trail, mall, etc. With that said, there is no reason to dine out as the food in the restaurant is excellent! The staff at the hotel is super nice and very accomodating. I stay there every two weeks for business and it is one of the best decisions I have made.

I was just coming from another Holiday Inn in which I had spent over a month for work, so I had similar expectations for this property. The other hotel was smaller, but they truly made me feel at home.
For this stay, I had requested a room with a pool view, but I was sent to a room overlooking a terrace with all the AC units. Not only I did not feel safe, but the room also had a bad smell. I requested to be changed, and there was a room on the same floor with pool view and no smell, which tells me that my request was probably not even read. Room was good size, but balcony doors are shut closed - I guess for safety, but in my case that is one of the features that attracted me to this property. I walked around and pool pictures posted on the web were probably taken with a wide lens as size of the pool was much smaller. Since I arrived TV was not working (No signal), so decided to have dinner and wait to see if the problem will be resolved by the time I returned. Nothing happened, so I called the reception and they were supposed to send an outside technician. I waited until close to 11 PM, nearly 2 hours later, and nobody showed up to get this fixed. I could not go to bed waiting for the tech, and at the end nothing was fixed.
I was planning to extend my stay, but after that first night, it was my last, I moved to another hotel. I love the Holiday Inn brand, I am a platinum member with IHG, so I have stayed in many different hotels. This one not only did not met expectations, but I found staff not very attentive or willing to solve problems.
