Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robman Trustworthy Staff, but smelly 1st floor rooms
I have Pro's & Con's about my stay there:
The Pro's were breakfast area was very good, the working staff is very trust worthy. I mistakenly left something of great value in the night stand. It was several hours later when I realized what I forgot. I called the front desk and told them what I left and they said that they had my property in their possession. When I arrived back at the hotel I was happy to see that all of the contents were returned. Thank You very much for being honest.
The Con's were that there were several rooms that my family reserved on the first floor that was facing the back parking lot that had wet carpeting floors by the windows, very musky smelling conditions that made sleeping arrangements uncomfortable. The staff was working on the moisture issues while we were there, but it still smelled bad. These rooms should of not been occupied. We did bring up the issues more than once. Management should of reassigned different rooms to us.

We loved this hotel! We stop over on our way from Ohio to the U.P. Staff very friendly. Upgraded us, it was so nice. We never get upgraded, so it was a nice change.

I can't remember when I have had a more attentive and friendly staff. It didn't matter what shift was working, if I had a question or request it was handled promptly and in a positive and friendly manner. The beds and linen were of exceptional quality and the room was very clean and comfortable. I generally stay at high end hotels as I like to be comfortable and cleanliness is very important. My expectations were more than met here, and I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone staying in Brighton. I would also note to read the notebook in your room as it had excellent ideas for dinning as well as some areas of interest worth noting. Thank you so much for helping to make my stay wonderful!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Rachel27 What Happened??
I have stayed in this hotel before and really enjoyed myself. I'm not sure what happened between then and now.
Upon arriving, I pulled back the sheets to discover an old stain in the bed. When I called the front desk, they offered to bring me a new sheet. Last time I checked, you don't have to make your own bed in a hotel. The toilet drained itself and then refused to flush two of the four nights of my stay and the ring under the toilet seat shows that cleaning is clearly a halfhearted effort. Holes in the bath towels topped it all off and I know that the next time I visit Brighton I will stay elsewhere.

We were there for a wedding, so didn't really spend much time at the hotel, but found it comfortable and in a good location. The person at the desk upon arrival was friendly and efficient.

I would definitely stay at this establishment again!! We stayed for our family reunion. Friday was our get-together as family members arrived from other states. We had use of a conference room which was convenient, spacious and clean. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was a WONDERFUL, FULL buffet, as good or better than restaurant fare. Our room was roomy and clean, bed very comfortable. Highly recommend!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Holly57 Toilet did not work
I've stayed at Holiday Inn Expresses before and liked them very much, which is why I chose to stay here. When we arrived in the room we found an empty coffee wrapper and no coffee. We were tired so we took showers (very disappointing shower) and got ready for bed. We then discovered that the toilet was not working; but it was too late to try and switch rooms. When we informed the front desk of the problem, he was not apologetic at all, but said we would send someone to fix it. They arrived as we were literally walking out the door. We were very disappointed with our stay, although the breakfast was very good.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessGuy8982098 The service was pleasant but nothing special.
I've stayed at this location many times and I was hoping the larger room would mean a nicer room. instead the fridge made a lot of noise and nothing was any more updates. The property and fixtures do not show well. They are clean but in no way modern.
I was not recognized as a Rewards Member.
I had to rush out in the AM and when I returned in the evening the ironing board has not been put away. I thought this was odd to walk back into the room and see.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Teri222222222222 Room stank of cigarettes
We reserved this room two months in advance. Non smoking with two young kids... One needed crib. They put us in a room that smelled horrible.... Like the people were smoking in the next room. We called and complained. They said we couldn't move... We're full. And that it smelled because it Used to be a smoking room. We all woke with headaches. I still don't understand why they would put us in there knowing we had an infant too! We had asked for a crib when we made the reservation. They gave us half off he room when we complained the next morning. Won't say there ever again.

Simply not a very good stay. Seems management is weak and lack of communication between departments created poor service. Not getting a room attended to for 3 days is bad. Will not return

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WGB66 Air conditioner filter problem
My stay was successful and I enjoyed the facilities. My problem was the air conditioner filter was coated with dust and it made breathing difficult. I have no allergies but the amount of dust was causing me to cough and sneeze and made breathing challenging. Thanks for the manager for coming to my room and addressing the matter quickly.
All filters should be cleaned as a prractice routinely since they are washable. Your customers would be happier with this simple act.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Canuck13 Grandaughters swim spoiled by out of control football game at pool!
We always stay at Holiday Inn Express. We were treating our grandaughters to a nice hotel and swim on their way home from vacatioining with us. 10 minutes into our swim eight -14 year old boys came to the pool with a football and drove everyone else away!! I called the desk to complain, but it did little good. The boys parents then came down to the pool and watched the football game.
I would not recomend this location if you expect to relax around the pool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MA59 Staff was wonderful
The staff was absolutely wonderful - they met every need and went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Breakfast contained a variety of foods and they didn't rush to close, which was great after a late wedding night.
We stayed in a Queen suite and it was big enough to handle all 6 of us. Got a little tight getting ready for a wedding, but it worked.
Could use a few more electric outlets for charging phones.
Can walk to IHOP and Target and close to downtown Brighton (lots of shops and restaurants).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nate26 Quality stay
This hotel was standard, but in a good way. Everything about the room was quality, and I found my room to be nearly spotless. The amenities were quite comfortable, and the breakfast is a tier above your usual continental breakfast. The staff were friendly, and noise was never an issue. For the record, I was in the wing off of the main lobby, and not near the pool. The fitness room was a cut above similarly priced properties. Overall, a nice place to stay. Should I be back in the area, I'd definitely stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jarek Not a good property
This was not a pleasant stay to sat the least.
The room was not only always cold, but also felt wet/damp.
Each night I came back, it smelled like wet socks.
Breakfast was not what I am used at other Holiday Inn locations: some things were cold, some pastry looked old.
Work out facilities: equipment looked old, was worn, very small room with inadequate ventilation. I was only one working out and it got very stuffy in a matter of minutes.
Good points were service-people were great! Very helpful and acommodating. Pool and hot tub very nice.
And beds very comfortable.
I will not stay at this location. I will look for another nearby.

We used this hotel for a block for our wedding guests. They were very helpful with getting these done and getting guest booked. The only downfall is that they did not have a shuttle.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JHS1 wet carpeting
I have stayed at this location before and had no issues. This time they decided to clean the carpeting in the hotel and had to walk on wet carpet the entire time. sound petty but when you work 15 hrs it would be nice to have the comfort I usually get. They should let the customer know of any inconveniences before booking. I could have booked at another location if i had the choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sandnsun Holiday Inn Express, Brighton, MI
Booked a Suite with 2Q, 1 sofabed. Our room was on the lower level, poolside. We were a little worried about the room being so close to the pool, but it was very quiet and you couldn't smell the pool chlorine in the room which was a big concern of mine due to allergies. Breakfast was typical hotel breakfast fare. We were there for a wedding and taking the shuttle bus from the hotel to the hall was very convenient. Staff was very pleasant. Would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bjod drive the extra miles
Traveling in Michigan for business I would find myself driving a couple of extra miles to stay at this HIE. The staff is always outgoing and freindly. Never do I have to ask for an upgrade, if there is one available I get it with a smile. Work will have me spending less time in michigan and I will miss the service i got at this HIE. I've stayed at over 12 HIE in Michigan and this is my favorite.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jasper94 Recent stay
The hotel is decent and clean, breakfast was served too late on a Saturday and we were not able to grab anything on our way out. The evening before the power went out and we had a very important engagement to attend. This made getting ready impossible. Since we were out of town we had no options, I realize this was out of the hotels hands,but it made for a very uncomfortable stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 85JJDee Most comfortable bed anywhere!
Face it, the purpose of a motel is to sleep. With a bad back, I need a firm bed and that is hard to find. We have stayed at numerous motels, chains and independent, and rarely find a bed as comfortable as we had here! We have a memory foam mattress at home, and found this one( a traditional inner spring) gave us wonderful support similar to ours at home.Now, that's not to say it was Hard, just supportive. Also, the pillows have cases marked "soft" and "firm" - and yes, I checked, the actual pillows within are different. Marvelous! Slept as good as I do at home. The heating unit was quiet and the room was dark - good quality curtains. Although right off the freeway, there was no road noise at all. The bathroom lighting is the new energy saver kind, so when I first turned on the lights I was fearful that it would be too dark. However, it just takes some time for them to get to full power how that saves energy I don't get it, but the lighting was sufficient to put on my makeup. The shower head was a large 'rain' type(?). It was either very soft or very 'hard' not much in between, but I was satisfied with it. OK, let's move on! The breakfast was very good, although I would have liked a fresh fruit bowl. Fresh bananas and oranges were available . Only Regular and Decaf coffee. Cold cereals, a Pancake machine(!) and hot cheese omelettes. Kept well stocked; when I told the server the coffee carafe was empty she immediately refilled it. And let me finish with the fact that the room and facility were extremely clean! Would definitely stay here again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by familywithkids Great hotel, kind staff, wonderful pool area
A very nice hotel. Great open air indoor pool with hot tub. Breakfast was always well stocked..never ran out of anything. Manager was very friendly and accomodating...was always asking if we needed anything. Very clean! Nice queen beds. Carpets could use an updating and room smelled a little musty..probably from older carpet. But would definitely stay here again! Good location...stores and restaurants right there.
