Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stevo8273 Ideal stop off
Needed a stay for one night on our way to NYC. We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived. We didn't have a reservation but the front desk staff offered us a great rate. The room was clean and comfortable...have slept in numerous hotels over the past few weeks and this was heaven. Check out was efficient and friendly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LookingforSleep Don't expect to sleep
Having stayed at many Holiday Inns throughout the United States, I have never experienced such a poor layout which affects the majority of patrons subjected to staying overnight in this Westlake location. Being one of the unlucky ‘guests’ located in a room surrounding the pool and bar area, we were awake most of the night from loud, partying guests which in itself, should not have been an issue. However, with the acoustics from the pool/bar area being as such, everything that was spoken, no matter how loud, drunken, or disorderly was heard crystal clear until the early morning hours and the bits of sleep we were able to acquire was of little value by checkout time. The food was overpriced which can be expected when ordering room service, yet the chicken wings were more dried out than beef jerky.
I would opt for a roadside tent over this location again. I have also now become an avid reader of hotel reviews prior to booking my next adventure, with Holiday Inn Westlake to thank for that new trepidation.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by theman poor food and service
the pork was dry and tough, the salmon was 50-50 warm or cold, had to chase after a waitress to get salads while everyone else was being served the entree.
Had two friends in wheelchairs who had to wait until 4 or 5 o'clock for their rooms to be ready [ I would think cleaning the handicap rooms would be of first priority]. The front counter staff could not tell these friends when their rooms would be ready and were rather put off that they might be expected to find out when or offer any solution.
If I was not an officer in our organization and if there was not a contract in place, I assure you I would not return.
I understand that this property lost its credentials a while ago and I can see why.

Check in staff were very nice and helpful, after that it was all down hill. The rest of the staff had an I don't care attitiude. We were there for a two day event and the food was fair at best. The wait staff gave the impression that we should be gratefull they were there to serve us. Whenever we made a request it was like we were putting them out to get it for us. On our last day, Sunday morning, they had four buses of people and we couldn't even get near the resturant, even though our breakfast was included in our stay. When we inquired about the breakfast arrangements we were told we would just have to wait like everyone else. Taking in that many people, which they knew about in advance, they should have made other arrangements for breakfast. Also, on our second day, room serice didn't get around to cleaning our room until around 5 PM. Totally unacceptable. WOULD NOT CHOOSE OR RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL.

Very nice room - although disappointed that we didn't get the I-LYA rate even though we made the reservation over a week prior to the event.
Hotel is easily accessible from Route 2/I-90. Has nice accommodations for the I-LYA meeting - plenty of nice, good sized rooms, with good equipment.
Hotel is near (one exit away) from an excellent shopping center.
Personal property was left in room. When I returned to retrieve it, the staff had thrown it away. Holiday Inn gave an adequate break on the room bill, and were very apologetic. Sorry this happened, but I'm not upset due to their response.
Look forward to next meeting in the fall at this same location.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SoSad4 Disappointing
At check-in we did not receive anything for being a Priority Club Member. Woke Saturday morning to find a big black bug in my sink. It ran down the drain. Dinner's food in the banquet room was over cooked steak. Potatoes were dry and felt like a rock, veggies were soggy. Sunday morning we went to breakfast which was included in our room rate and we could not eat. There was a group of over 160 people that come every year for breakfast together, as I was told after they arrived by the waitress. Why weren't they in a banquet room together instead of the dining room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tyler53 worst stay ever
We have stayed in several Holiday Inns and this has been our very worst experience. We got there a little early as my husband had a 3 o'clock meeting. Our room was not ready, however, it was because we had not requested certain amenities ! ! Went down at 4 - still not ready. Called at 4:30 and she couldn't even tell me when it might be ready. Received a call back from the room that our group was using as a food prep room at 4:45 and finally got a room. My husband ordered steak at the restaurant that evening (Sat.) and it was awful. My chicken and broccoli was good - perfect amount of garlic. As part of our group perk we were given vouchers for breakfast on Sat. and Sun. Because of meetings on Sat. morning, we were unable to take advantage of the breakfast but looked forward to Sun. morning. When we got down to the restaurant - there were about 50 people in line ! ! ! Did not stay - went to a Cracker Barrel instead.

1. At 3:30, the staff was not ready to assign my room.
2. The room was musty and smelled of urine.
3. Children raised Cain in the hallways until after 11 PM.
4. I received only one Breakfast chit; I paid for my wife.
5. The restaurant waitress brought only one coffee.
Overall, the staff did not seem capable of handling a weekend.
This is about the tenth time I have stayed at this facility. I have been satisfied about seven out of ten times.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MandieB Highly disappointed.
We had booked this hotel for one night as we were from out of town and wanted to go shopping at Crocker Park. This hotel is a joke. When we were taking the elevator to our room the first time, the elevator railing fell off in my son's hand. When the elevator doors opened we were greeted by peeling wallpaper. The hotels upper floors are hot and stuffy. When we arrived to our room our phone did not work, and we wanted to order room service. I called using my cell phone and I was transferred around three times, on hold for over ten minutes, then promptly hung up on when I was transferred to the bar area. Also, I had booked this hotel through priceline. On my hotel confirmation from priceline it is clearly noted that the checkout time is 12. That is clearly not the case. As we were getting ready to check out the door was POUNDED on four times, as well as the final time (around 11:20) a older woman rudely stated that the check out time was at 11. Please do not assume that this hotel has been updated, the only updates are new bedding. The only redeeming quality of this facility is the pool.

I've stayed many, many nights at this property because the staff is VERY friendly and helpful. The location is also great; next to a lot of restaurants and near my client.
That said, I've decided to move on. This property is starting to look very old and the rooms are worn and tired. This is painful since I really like the staff. However, the condition of the property is now such that I've decide to use another hotel from a competing chain until the hotel is given a major makeover.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by VP1234 Absolute worst experience I have ever had
Absolute worst experience I have ever had in all the years I have been traveling!
Fire Alarms sounded at 1:30am. most guest where in the cold parking lot for over an hour. Nobody from the staff at the hotel every told us what was going on. There was a party going on at the hotel (some club) they where loud and very drunk, some of them where standing at the front desk yelling out to the hotel guest to get out hurry the fire is coming!, I watched as many guest, kids to went running out the door, well the staff at the hotel desk said and did nothing! we all wondered if the party people set off the alarm! since none of them left the building. We found on the internet that back in 2004 a fire alarm was set off, I wonder if the same party group was there then! The next morning, at the front desk when I asked about what happened last night they didn't know what I was talking about! Never again will I stay at this hotel. Beware of the rooms too, we had 2 rooms in one the refrigerator froze all our pop! AC and Heat did not work. Door closed to quickly and would not close and latch, had to remember to pull it hard to get it closed. my hand got smashed in the door when rushing out to leaving for the fire alarm. Run the water in the bath tub and the drain stopper would close. There website shows nice tables and chairs between the bar area and the pool, sort of a sit and relax place, but no tables or chairs could be found, I asked a staff person he didn't know anything about it. Not one place for the 6 of us to sit. Beware if you stay at this hotel!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by neveragain2013 Terrible place to stay
The staff at this place is very rude. The rooms are marginal in furnishings, kind of the run down old hotel type. The curtains in the rooms do not close completely so bring some pins to close them. The water is luke warm - there is no 'hot' water. The halls and common areas are extremely hot.....whereas the rooms #at least that I have been in# require someone from maintenance in order to get them to work properly. I went to breakfast and they have scaled back thier offerings and the food was really bad....cold and had been sitting out for a while.

I had flown in on the red eye and arrived at 6am on a Tuesday. I was in because my sister had been moved to Hospice. She passed away that Thursday. The staff was amazing in their kindness and concern Lauren and Tracy and the young man on the night desk- Matt- were caring and compassionate. They say you can judge a company by the quality of the people that work there. No words can ever describe how wonderful the staff at the Westlake Holiday Inn is.
I know when we come back to visit, we will stay there.

by tukn30s terrible maintenance
It is a large hotel. The pool is centrally located so if you have a room looking in on the pool, be prepared to get some noise in your room. My room was on the 4th floor. First, my drain to my tub was completely broken off so if I wanted to take a bath I couldn't. Next I noticed a draft coming from the heating area. Upon further inspection, I found old carpet and socks stuffed under the heating unit used as insulation to stop drafts. Last the thermostat was located right above the heater, heat rises so the unit was shutting off prematurely. I informed the manager and was told she would credit me with 5000 points as a thanks for the heads up. I didn't get the points. I travel a lot and this is by far the worst hotel I stayed in...condition wise.

Stayed all week while in training down the road. Hotel is older and could use some updates but overall a good experience.
Staff was very friendly and courteous, couldn't ask for more there.
If you are planning on using the exercise room, not much to offer. At least one treadmill worked well and I didn't have any competition for it so that was good.
Close to the mall and food (probably not walking).

We live in Westlake ...and it was the weekend before the kids went back to school from Christmas vacation.
What a nice experience for all of us. The kids loved the pool... most of the time we were alone . We swam early and late. They loved to see themselves in the BIG windows at the top front of building. It was like a huge mirror.
Room was nice and the breakfast was great.
Staff was GREAT! Great time for Kids and Us.

Room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Our curtains were broken and would not close all the way. We stayed two nights for a wedding and were very disappointed that we had no microwave or refrigerator in our room. Also, our room was never cleaned on the second day, however our cleaning person was in the hallway and did give us clean towels. She did apologize that she never got to our room. There is no continental breakfast, and the restaraunt ran out of waffle batter, however their service was satisfactory. One lamp in our room was burned out, and there was no exhaust fan in our bathroom.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DisappointedinNY In need of TLC!!
We arrived two hours before check-in after a five hour drive and were told it would be a 12-15 minute wait until we could check in. We got into our room an hour and 25 minutes later! The room was uncomfortably hot from the moment we arrived to the minute we left. We requested a "suite" for extra room but the suites were very small. There was stained and ripped wallpaper in the lobby, halls and our room and bathroom. The carpet was rippling in our room. This hotel has potential. It could be very nice if they would just remodel. The only reason we stayed here was for the pool area. We were visiting family and thought the kids and their cousins would like to swim and didn't want the typical small hotel indoor swimming pool. The pool area was the only nice thing about this hotel. The free breakfast buffet was average at best. I got a discounted rate and still would not stay here again unless it was completely remodeled.
