Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxed22 Great Service...Great Getaway!
Even though we live only :20 minutes away, we use this hotel to "getaway" from it all:) They provide comfort and professionalism in service. We stayed in the exercise/jacuzzi/fireplace and one of the exercise machines did not work. Not only did they send the maintenance guy to fix it, they gave us a little bit of a discount for our troubles. Would definitely recommend and stay here again. As a matter of fact, we are making this a once a month deal;)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by traveler2155 Mechanicals and lighting need work.
Our hotel room was very clean, ample towels etc. Breakfast was average for a HIE. It was also evident that they were doing some maintenance on floors in one area.
However, the hvac units did not work properly, and some in the hallways actually produced heat on a 90+ degree day. The cable connection was poor. The other issue was the lighting in hallways and common areas. The crystal chandeliers do not provide adequate light. The breakfast area is as bright as a bar. The decor in the entire hotel needs some updating, although it is not in poor condition.
The front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. I was recognized as a Awards guest.

stayed in non-smoking room but with pretty strong smell of smoke as I walked in to the room. However, this poor experience is not the typical one.

I would like to commend the management of this establishment
on the outstanding service and help given during our stay.
They went out of their way to be of assistance and I will continue to use the facilities of Holiday Inn whenever possible.

The hotel was very nice and hotel staff was very helpful. Staff was willing to make some cookies for the kids late one night, which was greatly appreciated. Very nice experience overall, would be willing to stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chippy3 Super friendly and clean.
From the minute we arrived every staff member, from the front desk to housekeeping to the breakfast lady, were all extremely friendly and accommodating. We were in town for a quick 3-day family getaway - and this turned out to be the perfect place! The hotel is super clean - our room was spotless and very comfortable. The breakfast bar has a nice variety and plenty of it. We arrived fairly late each morning and every choice was still well stocked. The pool area is nice & spacious and the pool is wonderfully warm! We also enjoyed movies each night from the free video library. We really enjoyed our stay here and are looking forward to coming back.

I thought that was not a good way to handle gold members, the staff told me the upgrade room was available but she did not agree to give it to me..

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Detroit317 Front Desk
(1) I have asked for a wake up call but did not get the call in the first morning on March 18.
(2) I have asked (and was promised from the hotel front desk) to get a receipt in the early morning of my departure date (March 21). However, when leaving the hotel at ~4:30am, I did not get the receipt and the front desk could not print out one quickly due to the printer problem. The front desk has promised to send me a receipt but I have not got it so far after 6 days.

Great location when in Metro Detroit area. I have stayed several times and the staff is excellent and the rooms are clean and quiet. Ownership is constantly investing in both room and property upgrades. One of the nicest Holiday Inn Express hotels I have stayed in and I stay in about 60 different ones every year!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TGS76 worst holliday inn express in system
I will never say at this hotel again. I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past six years. I have watched it slowly fall apart.since it has changed ownership. I would have have left ,however it was late and I had to be at a meeting first this in the morning. The owner/manager did not acknowledge me as a priorty club member. He told me there was only one rate for the room. He was smug and rude he acted like he didn't care if I stayed there or not. My room smelled like dirty socks. There was very little food for breakfast. I will stay at a different Holiday Inn next time I am in Detroit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jim287 Convenient place to stay for the airport
We stayed at the hotel to facilitate access to the airport for a flight. The room was clean, the staff very friendly and accommodating. The continental type breakfast was self serve and surprisingly good.
I would definitely recommend this hotel

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nikki74 Fireplace and Jacuzzi Tub #1
This hotel is not modern. So don't look for it if you check in.
It is mostly a business hotel cause it is near the airport.
But has not Vintage things around. The decor is dated. But it is suppose to be. I spotted some very nice pianos all throughout the Hotel that were old and unique.
The room was large. Bigger than what I expected.
It was a tad on the warm side. Not sure if that was cause of the fireplace or not. A few times I actually had to turn the AC on and that was in the middle of winter.
I did enjoyt the Jacuzzi Tub though. The room was quiet and the Bed was comfortable.
I didn't visit the gym. But I did get a chance to wake up early to check out the free breakfast. Loved It!
You could have anything you wanted. Better than anyplace I have been too with free breakfast.
Pancakes, Waffles, Sausage, Pastiries, Juice, Coffee, Tea, Energy drinks, Cereal..the list goes on.
The only thing that was disappointing about my stay was that while I was there there was water main break that set off the fire alarm. That scared me and my partner half to death. It got fixed. But I was disappointed that the hotel didn't give a discount to there guest for the inconvience that night, no matter how small it was. The entire front desk area was buried in water. It may not have been in my room but it was stressful for a few hours when we weren't sure what was happening or if it would be fixed or what??

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by travelweary disappointed
When we travel we always try to stay at Holiday Inn,usually this means a clean comfortable room at a fair price. We had stayed at this particular Holiday Inn before and experienced no problems. This time we were not so fortunate. The toilet in our room did not work, which you must admit is a big deal. When notified of this, the person on the front desk, expressed her sympathy but did not offer to get it fixed or give us another room.
On checking out we were asked if we enjoyed our stay. Do they not communicate or even take a note that the toilet doesn't work in that room. Can you enjoy your stay without a working toilet?
The other matter I find far more serious, is the fact I only used my credit card at the Holiday Inn. It had not been used at all until that point. A day after returning home I was notified by my credit cart provider that my card had been comprised. Unauthorized usage had been attempted. My card was duly cancelled . I can only suspect the worse. We were also promised a copy of the bill would be sent to our email address, this did not occur.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by irratated hotel was good but ...
They would not put towels in the exercise room even though I requested them on three separate occasions. I ended up getting towels from the pool area or bringing one from the room. In addition, there was no material to wipe down the machines after a workout. This is very unprofessional.
The rest of the stay was good

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by cmu99 Never been treated like this.
We were caught in a snow storm and stopped at this Holiday Inn Express. The person at the front desk was not friendly at all. Did not care that I was a Priority Club member. Our room was very cold when we went into it. The heat was not on, took most of the night to get it warmed.
The next morning at breakfast my daughter open a carton of milk and it was spoiled to the point of "globs" coming out when she poured it. When she told the staff they told her to just get another one. She did and it was the same. She went and told them again, they said they would check into it. We were there for a half hour and they never checked the milk cooler.
I stay at Holiday Inn Express all the time for Business. So I know they are not all like this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by theworkingman I will no longer be able to stay here
I have been staying at this hotel for years, as I do work with both Ford and Chrysler. I will no longer be able to stay at this location because I can not access my corporate VPN. Something has recently changed with this sites internet security which limits my coworkers (who have complained of the same) and myself from accessing work emails. This severely limits my ability to perform my job correctly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Theswains Great hotel!
We were originally trying to get a good hotel in downtown Detroit, but when the World Series hit town that became impossible. We chose this one despite the fact that there were no reviews at the time, and because we have had good experiences at the Holiday Inn.
It was perfect, one of the best hotels we have stayed at and that includes 5 star hotels. The furniture and bed was very comfortable for a hotel. The pool was room temperature and the weight room had just enough equipment to give you a work out. Nice to have a tv in it as well.
They still had fresh coffee later at night and the breakfast was enough to actually not have to leave the hotel to get nourishment. The staff was as good as I have ever encountered.
There is plenty of shopping available in less than a mile and it feels very safe.
My only complaint is that I couldn't figure out how to get the tv volume to work when we tryed to watch downloaded movies on it via a laptop and an HDMI cord.
