Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pranster Excellent stay
Stayed one night here on business. Hotel was easy to find off the highway. Free parking but parking lot was quite crowded around 3 PM, a bit difficult to find a spot. Check in was a breeze, friendly front desk staff. The room was the largest room I have ever stayed in that wasn't a suite. However, I can't verify that all the rooms are that large. Hardwood floors which were very nice. Very comfortable bed, microwave, full size refrigerator. The normal toiletries, plenty of towels, good water pressure in the shower. Check out was easy, front desk staff very friendly and happy to help at 5:30 AM. Highly recommend this hotel.
As well I found The James, the hotel dining option, to be excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by visitor19938 Not bad and not great
Rooms were nice, bathroom had a door stop that was about 3 inches to long. Kept hitting the door.
Restaurant seemed overpriced and not enough staff for the amount of patrons.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sasha 22 Clean, quite, and for the most part, comfortable.
The greeting at the front counter was excellent. We were made to feel like we were their most important visitors. The check-in process went very smoothly. The rooms were very clean, well lit and the bathroom was in excellent condition.
My only complaints were about the pillows and the shuttle service. The pillows were extremely "lumpy" and not very comfortable at all. The shuttle service was offered to all guest of the wedding. However, there was only one mini-van that held six guest running back and forth to the wedding. As a result, we were late for the ceremony, as were at least six other guests that were waiting for the next shuttle. The return shuttle was just as bad. We had to wait for four trips ahead of us to go back to the hotel. If they knew that they were going to have so many guests using the shuttle, they should have used more shuttles or a large vehicle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by riddle's Nice Hotel
This hotel in general was very nice, although the staff could be more attentive to the customers I feel. We had just checked in and got some of our things unpacked when we got a call from the front desk to tell us that this room had issues and they would have to move us to another room. So we repacked all our things and waited for a staff member to come up to trade keys in order for us to switch rooms....Staff did show up to inform us that there was a mix up and the room was ok for us to stay in but we could move if we wanted to still, so we did. It was kind of weird to be honest with you. We went down to the lobby to use the computer and print a map to our next destination and found out that when you print something it prints at the front desk, therefore you have to wait in line with other patrons who are checking in to get your printout. Coffee was never available (containers were always empty)..Beds were comfortable, and room was clean, did not eat here but prices of menu items were quite high I thought.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wade29 Comfortable room and great amenities
This is one of the nicest Holiday Inn's I have stayed in. The location is right downtown and within walking distance to a grocery store and several restaurants. They do have a restaurant and bar. I would definitely recommend the blueberry pancakes they are really good! Will definitely stay here again if I'm ever in the area. The Candlewood Suites, also in town, is very nice as well. You can't go wrong with either one.

I stay here roughly 20-30 times a year for work and the staff from the front desk to the James Restaurant to the GM of the property are always top notch. Rooms are clean and quiet, food is pretty good, and if your not in the mood for hotel atmosphere, there are many bars and restaurants all within walking distance. I recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Williamsport area.

I have been travelling to the Williamsport area for over 20 years. I have forgotten how many times I have stayed at this Holiday Inn but I know it is a lot of nights. Thanks to the management and staff for always making me feel welcome. The upgrades you have made to the hotel were worth it. I am a Platinum member and I appreciate quality lodging. I will keep coming back for many years to come. Keep up the good work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Never Distracted!
I was able to bring a friend of mine to the Holiday Inn Williamsport for an overnight stay. We both truly enjoyed the pool, the outstanding friendliness at the J-Bar, the incredible food and the overall accommodations and staff. I have never had a better night's rest as I did on the beds we had. This is a Class "A" adventure with all the amenities one needs to be able to thoroughly enjoy their stay. The downtown amenities are not far away at all, if you even desire to leave!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ontheroadagain7511 If You Need Internet Go Someplace Else
I travel for business and the one thing I have to rely on is having good internet connection during my time in the hotel. This one did not on the evening I was there. I will say that when I initially tried to connect and could not get it to stay on reliably the front desk put me in touch with the internet provider who tried to help but nothing got any better. The co-worker I was travelling with was experiencing the same issues.
Ended up in the lobby (which has a cold breeze blow in every time someone enters) for three hours getting work done as this was the only place where I could reliably connect and get enough bandwidth. From the room on the 4th floor I could not even get the IHG website to load up. When I voiced my concerns to the front desk the response was "We had a full house last night so maybe that was the problem."
Since the internet works fine in the Lobby I can only assume they do not have enough routers in the guest room area to cover the load that can occur when you have a full house. If you want to continue to have a full house then you might want to invest in what is needed to make it work correctly.
If I have to stay in the area again I might try the HI Express right next door or the Candlewood Suites on the east side of town but most likely will just go to State College where I know the HI Express has everything I need.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CryoBob21 Good location but restaurant lacked quality
Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express are attached. If I would have known at check in I would have stayed at the Express location. Breakfast was expensive and not worth the money. Hotel is neat and well kept. Good location and easy in easy out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LuckyCharm90 Great Bar Atmosphere
I was waiting for a friend to meet me in the area, while I was waiting, I went to the bar. The bar tenders were very laid back and welcoming. I felt like I was a regular due to the casual conversations and many laughs. The only downfall I have to say about my stay was the fact that there was a guest across the hall that kept slamming their door all night til about midnight, and then was up early in the morning yelling. The rooms are not very sound proof. Very hard to relax when trying to sleep. But that is not the hotel's fault, more so just a rowdy and rude guest across the hall. The room was very clean and everything else exceeded my expectations. Great staff at the Holiday Inn!

My wife and I looked around town for a place to have our reception and finally settled on the Holiday Inn Williamsport because the staff was fantastic to work with and they took care of almost everything. The food was out of this world. They accommodated us with such ease and flexibility. And the suite we got that was included in the package was unbelievably wonderful with wine and chocolate covered strawberries included. If you are looking for a reception of any kind or a fantastic hotel to stay in, don't hesitate to use the Holiday Inn Williamsport!

stayed at this hotel with a guided party. Everything was perfect, rooms lovely and clean, attention to detail everywhere. Was greeting with wine and cheese and on our departure was given fruit, the only hotel on the whole of our trip in U.S.A and Canada who had taken the trouble to make a big party welcome. Would recommend it without any hesitation

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by retff Decent hotel, poor housekeeping
Overall, the hotel could be very good; the location is excellent, the room had nice amenities, and the rates were good. The king-suite was roomy but the bathroom was extremely small. The biggest problem was the room wasn't clean when we checked in, and the bedding wasn't changed all week.
We also had a problem one night with a simple (pizza and a hamburger) "to-go" order from the on-site restaurant. Apparently they were short staffed and someone had to come in from home. They gave us the meal for free and delivered it to the room but it took almost two hours.
The people at the front desk were outstanding they were friendly, very helpful and always courteous.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JK32013 Friendly, Helpful Hotel Staff
Had a very comfortable and pleasant stay. All connected to the hotel were very courteous and helpful. The waitstaff in the restaurant were especially very accommodating, but also the friendly young woman at the front desk, the helpful young men who drove us to and from our wedding destination, and the various maintenance people we encountered (especially when the elevator kept breaking down). We will definitely consider staying here the next time we visit Williamsport,.
