Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RCFK Shortcomings for this stay.
I am usually very satisfied with my stay at the Holiday Inn in Defiance, Ohio. The breakfast is always top notch and the overall atmosphere is very welcoming. However, during my stay on July 18 and 19 of 2014 I experienced some shortcomings. First of all there was a leak in the toilet plumbing. The fact that the floor tile had iron deposits suggests that the leak had been there for a while. My major objection was being placed right next to a family with little children who allowed them to run up and down the hallway at 11:30 at night. The managements solution was to allow me to move to a different room the next day--which I objected to. My position is that with a half filled hotel the families with children should be placed away from other people.

We were there to attend a wedding reception. We don't normally stay at Holiday Inn Express properties but were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and size of the room. We would definitely recommend it.

We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Defiance, Ohio. We were visiting family there for the first time in a number of years. The hotel and its amenities were as we remembered them. All was clean and neat, the staff were helpful, the breakfast was great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MultifariousMusician Great staff, but the plumbing needs work
There are only a few things that I absolutely MUST have when staying in a hotel: a clean, comfortable bed, a feeling of safety and security, and a functioning bathroom. Yes, the room was clean and comfortable, I felt safe and secure, and the staff was very helpful, but the plumbing was an issue. The shower gave off a high pitched "hum" after the first few seconds that sometimes went away, and sometimes didn't. I can overlook that. But the toilet was a real problem. It backed up three times. Yes, the staff did come and clear the problem, but it kept recurring. When I have to go downstairs to use the toilet in the middle of the night, it affects my entire outlook on the stay. It's not the fault of the staff - they did what they needed to do. Someone in maintenance needs to do some major overhauling.

Only problem we had was the shower was a little bit noisy but other than that the room was great and comfortable. My husband said he noticed a slight smell when we arrived in the room but I didn't notice anything and thought it was fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bigfish good long term stay
As a business traveler I spend multiple nights out of town - primarily at HIE's. HIE Definance is a good value. Spent two weeks here. Comfortable rooms, well appointed with mini fridge and micro wave. Beds were firm with choice of pillows. Breakfast pretty standard fare that are at other HIE's. Breakfast staff friendly, helpful and pleasant. Front desk personel willing to help and suggest restaurants - the Country Club open to all guests is the best bet for nice dining. Would like to see all HIE's upgrade in -room desks to better suit business travleres. Once you put a laptop on the desk, not alot of room left for paperwork. Rate this HIE a 9 on a 10.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Skibo Very Good Overall, Staff needs ServiceDog Training
Overall experience at this facility was very good, I would recommend the staff be trained on current ADA/Service Dog rules and regulations.
We were questioned about our daughter's golden retriever service dog, almost to the point of feeling a little "grilled" so I took the opportunity to educate the evening manager on Federal guidelines. Once completed, the manager and staff thanked me and there were no further issues.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by busines35 Great front desk staff-average cleaning of room
The front staff at this hotel is great-always friendly and ready to serve. I travel for business and this staff always makes me feel welcome. The only minor issue I have with the hotel is that this is the only holiday inn express that leaves an envelope for tips for housekeeping. the room is always clean yet they forget minor things like leaving additional coffee for the following days of your stay etc..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Flo15 Updated rooms
The rooms were updated and are clean and fresh looking.
I wish the breakfast had some more choices of fruit. The yogurt was out of date. However, the cinnamon buns are quite tasty. I arrived one morning for breakfast at 8:45, they close at 9:00, the hostess was not happy that I had arrived. Noone else was there. I said I'll just have an English muffin and be on my way, so you can clean up, still not happy with that.
It was very quiet and the cleaning staff were very nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bubbagumper6 Average Holiday Inn
The rooms are nice, supposedly recently (within the past few years) renovated. The beds are about average, definitely not the best I've slept on but adequate. Even the basic rooms include a microwave and fridge while the suites include a small kitchen. The breakfast is pretty bad but I guess that's to be expected. The Hampton Inn across the courtyard has a better selection but also costs slightly more so I suppose that's a wash. My biggest complaint is that the hot tub is terrible. It is NEVER hot and now is out of order so it's not even usable. They also don't have a very good "office" for guests, it's merely a computer in the lobby with a printer attached (a scanner would be nice!). It is VERY close to Buffalo Wild Wings though so walking to/from the bar is no problem.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Maxr New Years Stay
I booked this hotel for an overnight vacation stay for New Years. After checking in earlier, I was acknowledged (not greeted) at 7:00pm by a surly lady without an ounce of personality.
I stopped to request the normal late checkout for Priority Club, she gave me a bit of a hard time about it, but said she would note the time of check out. Well obviously, that never happened, as we were awakened at 8:30 the next morning by housekeeping wanting to clean the room!
Considering that it was New Years Day and the hotel was not that busy it seems a bit of attention to the request of a guest could have been given. As much as HIEX charges for a room you would think there would be no reason for a guest to be dissatisfied.
