My husband and I live just a few miles away from the hotel, but this winter has been harsh and froze our sewer line. We found ourselves suddenly with no water and had to stay at a hotel while the line was replaced, which was estimated to take three days. I chose this hotel because my parents used to stay here repeatedly when they visited from out of state and were pleased with it. We found the room very clean, quiet and comfortable.
Repairs took only 24 hours instead of three days. Late afternoon on the second day, the plumber said we could return home. I asked the desk clerk if we could avoid being charged for the second night. He said technically no, because checkout time is noon and we'd be leaving at 5pm, but he waived the cost given our situation. We greatly appreciate his kindness.
An earlier review found the free breakfast uninspiring, but I think it's hard to go wrong with warm cinnamon rolls.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tech teacher nothing special
This hotel is OK but nothing special. Older property and showing that age. Breakfast choices are poor and boring. Cheese omelets almost every morning. No effort or thought put into, just doing the bare minimum to say they did it. Fitness room is almost insulting in the lack of effort. Poor selection of cardio machines, and cheap stuff. Nothing of significance for strength training. If a decent fitness room maters to you like it does to me, go somewhere else. Front desk staff was OK.

The hotel is nice and I would stay again. The hotel is ready for some upgrades, pillows, damaged sink in bathroom, stained carpets. With all that said these were minor inconveniences. The staff was helpful, very quick check in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marry 44 Good hotel
We stayed in this hotel one night before and one after our 10 day international trip. We were able to leave the car on their parking lot and not worry about parking at the airport or elsewhere. Shuttle took us to the airport and then picked us up without any delays. Breakfast was OK, however, their juice machine was broken and there was no cold water or juice. Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and in good condition.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mhinchey Comfortable bed and great service.
I really loved my stay at this location. It was located very close where I had to be each day, staff was really friendly and accommodating, room rate was great, beds were comfortable (room over all was very clean), breakfast was complimentary every day and had a great selection to choose from and there was a free shuttle to and from the airport during normal business hours. I was really impressed – can’t you tell? I highly recommend this hotel to anyone passing thru!!

From the complimentary breakfast to the courteous service, this place is quickly becoming our favorite place to stay when we're in the Chicago suburbs. Right across the street from Mitsuwa, a large Japanese supermarket so you can get your authentic Japanese food fix too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 good choice for Ohare
Since they provide free shuttle to and from Ohare, I dont see why this would be a bad choice~ Typical holiday inn express- clean and efficient. Breakfast is nice enough, great experience overall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MNguy8801 Very Nice Stay!
The room was very comfortable and had an open and spacious feel to it. We had a room with one king-sized bed. The mattress and pillows were very, very comfortable. My wife and I got excellent sleep that night. We wanted a place to stay that was close to both the interstate highway and a Metra train station. While visiting the Chicago area, we stayed out in the suburbs where it was quiet and took the train into Chicago for shopping and sight seeing. This hotel had a perfect location for what we wanted.

I enjoy staying at this hotel. The staff makes me feel very welcome and at home during my numerous trips to Chicago. Special thanks to Szymon, Jennifer, Chris, Roger, Justin, and MIke. These people are courteous, professional, and above all else, my friends. I would not stay anywhere else but here! Another plus is location. This hotel is close to shopping and many fine restaurants.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tealover0508 Pleasant surprise!
This was my first stay at Holiday Inn.
I received the very courteous and professional services from the time I called the hotel.
The entire hotel was very clean especially the bathroom. Linens were also clean and fairly new.
I can't compare with other Holiday Inn since this is my very first stay, but I would definately come back here for next trip to Arlington Heights and highly recommend to others.
As a tea drinker, I would love to have more veriety of tea in the lounge area and breakfast room.

Great price,very clean. But the Beds are so uncomfortable!!!! They need to upgrade their mattresses bad! There is a frig in the room, but no microwave. The breakfast was not that great,not as many choices as other hotels. Juice machine gives you warm juice.My room was across from the laundry room and the staff was so loud in the morning they woke me up!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tgabs Room comfort good, service average
To many kids using lounge area computer's unable to get use. tried again later but NO internet communication. Needed the computer for business print transaction. Tried again later, still no internet,. However, hotel manager was kind enough to let me use the staff computer and I was able to complete my transactions.
Breakfast was average although staff could have done a better job cleaning tables after people left. To bad some people are such slobs and don't clean up after themselves.
Location is excellent, check in was excellent, parking is excellent. I would recommend this hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DDS79 Sold my Reservation
I made reservation on Hotel website 3 weeks prior to coming into town. Flight was delayed 3 hrs, arrived at 1000pm to take shuttle. I was then notified from shuttle driver that my reservation had been sold to someone else. Another person on shuttle stated she had just got a room at hotel from one of those 3rd party hotel websites in 1 hour of landing.
Hotel finally gave me and wife 2 double bed for 1st night and then our king I originally reserved for the 2nd night.
I brought up the point that they had my cell number from reservation and no one called to notify me.
-If I were to cancel my room I would be charged.
-What's the point of making reservation?
-They gave me $16 of my room rate, which is probably the normal cost of a double bed room.
No manager every took responsibility, simply blamed it on the airport for telling them about the delay. "it's not our fault"

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ztrip Emergency Stayover
I had a flight cancellation with no other option than to layover until the next available flight the following morning. My normal hotel, and all those immediately around it on River Road were booked full. When I checked with the Holiday Inn Express on Manheim they too were full but the attendant told me she saw an opening at this Holiday Inn Express so she transferred me to reservations to book it. The booking went fine and the booking rep informed me that there was free airport shuttle and to go to door #2 and the shuttle would run every 30 minutes for this hotel. After approximately 40 minutes I called the hotel and asked when the next shuttle was be at the Shuttle Pick-up door #2. She said about 30 minutes. I told her I had already been there 40 minutes and was told it ran every 30 minutes. She said "No we don't run every 30 minutes, they told you wrong". 45 minutes later, 1 hour and 25 minutes total waiting to be picked up at O'Hare, the shuttle arrived. I had not missed any previous pickup attempts, this was the first time it picked up during an 1 hour and 25 minute period. I had called back one other time and the same female attendant told me "yeah he's running behind". There were no appologies for any of this by the front desk or the driver. A simple "I'm sorry" would have gone a long way under the circumatances or a "I'll make sure reservations is aware of our shuttle times and doesn't give out improper times in the future" but got neither or anything for that fact. This made my decision to never book at this hotel again.

There is a Japanese Super Market in the neighborhood. It has a shuttle bus to Chicago O'hare airport starting theb hotel at 5:00am, it will be much, much better for us to fly early in the mording.

We came up for the Arlington Million and stayed at this Holiday Inn Express. The staff was great, the rooms were nice and big and the breakfast had a great variety of choices and was a nice surprise. We booked early online and the savings was well worth it!

Stayed here for a coaching clinic, staff seemed frazzled and the computers were down. Chris was a great help getting things up and running so a special thank you for him. He saved the Staff and Service rating on this one. I'm chalking this stay off as a "bad day" for the hotel, and will stay here again if needed.

This is a fine hotel for overnight stays by business travelers. There is no pool and modest fitness facilities. The hotel is generally clean but a little tired and has a slight dank odor on the first floor. Staff is friendly. Close to Metra a big bonus and right off 90. Wouldn't choose this site for long stays or vacation.

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. After driving for 7 hours, the staff allowed me to check in early. I really appreciated the early check-in as I was tired from my trip. Staff was very helpful in directing me about the restaurants in the area. Breakfast was available each morning. Except for being a long way from downtown Chicago, I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.

This is by far the best Holidays Inn Express I have stayed in. The staff goes above and beyond to accommodate your needs. The hotel was very clean and has a beautiful lobby. The room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. I loved the hot breakfast. So many items to choose from. I really enjoyed the pancakes. It is in a great location close to many good restaurants. I will recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kobus Shuttle is not 24 hours, despite having balled before the booking
The room was good and comfortable, equally was the complementary collection from the airport.
Was really disappointed to hear that the shuttle only started operating at 7am, and that we would need to get a taxi to the airport for a 6am departure, despite the fact that I called the hotel prior to making the booking to confirm the complementary shuttle service.
The 'conditions' were never given....
