Husband and I stayed here for a total of 12 days during the Covered Bridge Festival. Breakfast very good. The types of eggs and meats for breakfast changed daily. The bread products in the bread case were put out as needed and not in great abundance so they would always be fresh when chosen. The pancake maker was out of order, but still, there was so much to choose from, it did not matter. The room was clean. We liked the HD flat screen TV. We felt like the mattresses were not terribly comfortable, but 4 big pillows per bed made up for that! Shower head was good... that is important to us. Housekeeping did a great job. Desk clerks were wonderful and helpful, as well as the ladies that prepared breakfast daily. We were thoroughly satisfied and happy with our stay at this Holiday Inn! Thank you, Holiday Inn at Cloverdale!!

It served the purpose for us. We spent the day at The Covered Bridge Festival and was nice to drive a shorter distance than back home. Breakfast was enough to start your day.
The Mexican Resteraunt across the street was great food.
We will consider staying here again next year!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NeilW Poor Access
The hotel feels a little older although rooms are clean and comfortable.
There is NO ELEVATOR, 2nd floor rooms require guests to walk up a significant number of stairs.
My room had no Refrigerator or Microwave.
The Internet connection was so slow it was unusable
Premium HBO channel was unwatchable.
As a Platinum Member I was not offered any kind of room upgrade, although I did get a free newspaper and "goodie bag" on arrival.
Overall I think this is the worse Holliday Inn Express I have stayed in. I was happy it was for only a short stay.

Was disappointed this stay. King Room N/S, didn't have a fridge or microwave, as I've had in the past. Was told rooms with them are limited. Will be sure to request these amenities next time.

We were pleased to be able to use our handicap lift with your bed. Too many hotels have platform beds which defeats the purpose of a handicap room. Thanks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by guyin233 Very Relaxing, accomidating staff
The staff were very helpful. When I arrived it was long before check in, about 10:00 am, and I asked when the room would be ready. The desk clerk called housekeeping but couldn't get hold of them. She said it shouldn't be very long after noon. In the mean time, I was walking around the grounds and met a worker that was rebuilding the retaining wall out back. We had a good conversation while he was on break. KUDOS to him. I got the room before noon.
I couldn't sleep and took a walk. The night clerk was interesting to talk with. A little chatty but seemed to be an All American type of girl. KUDOS to her too.
Very relaxing and accomidating

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mar17 Very tired property
This is the worst Holiday Inn we've stayed in. Basically the whole property needs a total makeover. The lobby, hallway and room carpeting is old and dirty. The bedrooms are shabby and the bathrooms were the same. One of the staff nicely moved us from our original room because it smelled like smoke. The final blow came at 6:30 a.m. the next morning when we were awakened to the strong and unpleasant smell of bacon grease and the fire alarm going off. I guess the ventilation isn't very good. We were really surprised to see the condition of this hotel because our experience with other Holiday Inns has been very positive.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Toetags Awful hotel
This hotel is rundown and is under re-model. Dust everywhere. Some of the equipment in the dinning room was "Out Of Orderr" The jucuzzi was freezing and didn't work. Our door wouldn't shut properly. Horrible place!! We had driven 8 hours and was really looking forward to a hot juccuzzi. I hate to see signs that say "Out Of Order" in the kitchen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scottwis1 Always an enjoyable stay
I've been staying at the Cloverdale HIE nearly every year since it opened in 1997. I come down for the Indy 500 and Brickyard 400 weekends each year and make sure to have my rooms reserved here. The staff is always very friendly and helpful, with the rooms always clean and neat when we open the door. The main complaint that I'd have is with the television channels available and the quality of whatever satellite service they use. It seems like there are always a couple of channels with very poor reception and seems like it's usually at least one channel that we really want to watch that weekend, such as FOX when they are broadcasting the Coca Cola 600. Also, how in the world you can be in Indiana and not have SPEED channel on your TV lineup is beyond me! Since most motor sports are going to be on NBC Sports Network and the new FOX Sports One channels, I hope they are added to the channel line up by the time I come back next May... Also, I've never understood why we should to pay more for our rooms because we are staying there for a race weekend. Do people passing by and just stopping for the night pay the same rates? It doesn't cost anymore for me to stay there than it does for the guy just passing through. It's not just here, I know it happens all over the country, wherever races are... We do enjoy the breakfast in the morning and always look forward to the hot cinnamon rolls! Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying at this Holiday In Express.

I was to have a King room and ended up with two Queens; This hotel has no elevator so be aware. The bed was bad in 212 like kids and jumped from one bed to another and broke it down. As a platiuim Rewards I think I will do better next time to drive on to Indy. Also no decent restaurant nearby. RA

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Murphymae Very nice place!
I booked on line and requested to be on the first floor, but that was not on the order. But the desk clerk was very nice and placed us on the first floor (this place does not have an elevator). I requested a king bed, but we got two queen, which was fine. The only major thing is that their TV stations stink and their breaksfast was not good. Overall, we will stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sunny7 Comfortable
This is a comfortable HIE. The beds are always great and clean, the towels fluffy. The odd thing is there are no elevators, so you have to drag luggage upstairs, I am a fit person, I can do that, but it is worth it to me to be on top floor, for more peace and quiet. It was a little dated, and our room did smell stale like old smoke and this is a non smoking facility. I noticed in the morning the housekeeping staff had room doors open to cleaned rooms, (to Air them out?)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by forgetthisnickname Poor service
Traveling from Kansas to Ohio - returning home with a crew of 4 for business. We had no defined plan where to stop for the night. I estimated this location and called in advance to see if rooms were available due to the race in Indy that weekend. There were rooms, so a little later we decided this would be a good stop. I called the hotel directly and was placed on hold and was never picked back up - repeated calls direct to the hotel were unsuccessful and unanswered. I told my crew this is not a good sign, but we decided to go ahead as Holiday Inn's are usually a good choice. I was forced to make my reservation through the reservation phone line and at that time reserved all 4 room to my name and gold priority club number - when we arrived the hotel we were tired and the check-in took a long time and was as much our fault as I wanted the 4 rooms to be checked in under the names of my crew personnel, needed for expense report protocol for my company and our customers - the next morning all rooms were only registered to one name and not even mine used for reservation. Took a long time to resolve and not certain priority points were allotted to our individual names or to the name of my crew member the desk clerk chose to register the rooms - it was my company credit card used to pay for the rooms and the lady at check out tried to resolve but was a mess due to the poor check-in from an inexperienced or plainly unsupervised staff member. Poor phone and customer service at check-in and unable to check in the rooms to the names we took the lengthy time to register the rooms under, the clerk could not take time to enter our information into the hotel register from our check-in paperwork. Never will recommend or plan to stay there again. Only stayed one night but my room did not have fridge or microwave or work desk so if I was in town for business the room was not up to standards I expect from Holiday Inn Express. Being a Gold Priority Member and two others were priority club members we were not offered a drink of bottled water or anything we have learned to expect at check-in. Very poorly trained and immature staff at front desk in the evenings.

My room was really smelly like smoke even though it was a non smoking room. When I brought it to the front desk attention they gave me febreeze. It didn't help much. The satellite tv reception was horrible, a major crack in the wall and too much noise past 11 PM. I would not recommend the first floor.

I had a good stay. Very typical Holiday Inn, the best hotel in area so I was told by locals. Room was clean. Breakfast was very good! Staff was very nice and helpful.
Hot water is always a plus. My only complaint is the gap under the doors is too big and it makes noise from the hall very loud. Not sure how you can fix this and is a common complaint of mine.
I wouls stay here again if ion the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NCepeda330 Weekend to Remember
I booked the room just for a night because I was told that it was booked the whole weekend because of a horse show. I was really disappointed at first, but right at check out a very warm, sweet young lady said, "I'll check again"...and she was able to give me the same room, for the same rate! I was so excited! I was greeted warmly when I got there, and even better when I was totally scared of not having a place to stay.
Breakfast was good for it being so early in the day but I was there for a conference, so early was fine! Bed's were comfy, I was a little disappointed with the small shower, but hey I love the bed!
Thank you so much for your warm hospitality! I will totally stay there again if I'm ever in Indiana!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tennisfan2013 Worst Holiday Inn I've ever experienced.
It was noisy ... there were bugs in the bathroom ... the breakfast wasn't up to the usual Holiday Inn mediocre standards.
We planned to stay 2 nights, but after the first sleepless night we spent the second night in a delightful place (different chain) less than an hour away.
The desk staff was very nice and did make some accomodation in the price, but I would rather have had a good night's sleep.
Problems encountered included being awakened by a very squeaky bed being used in another room AND loud talking in the hallway early in the morning by guests and staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FFredd Good Clean comfortable
Accommodations are very suitable and comfortable, though lacking in a couple items - microwave and refrigerator. The greatest difficulty we had was that we travel with quite a bit of luggage do to my wife's health and there was no elevator. When we got all the baggage to the 2nd floor there was no cart there to take it to the room which was some distance away. Beyond these things it was a comfortable good stay in a clean commodious room

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerryE Excellent service but not a lot of options for food around
We stayed at this hotel two times in December 2012. The first time we did not have a reservation due to not knowing for sure where we would stop for the night. The second time we did have a reservation for our return trip. The check in on the first trip was good but even better on our return trip a week later. The young man that checked us in actually remembered me before he'd pulled up our reservation which was pretty amazing. The only drawback to this hotel is there aren't any good restaurants near by only fast food.
