Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arlyne Great Kids Suite
We decided on a last minute trip to Wisconsin Dells with our kids and we could not find an affordable room near the Dells so we decided to gamble on a place 40 minutes away.
Our stay was very pleasant and it was easy to get to the Dells from this location. We had the kids suite and my boys were so excited to have their own "section" in the room. Even though there were two TVs, we were able to watch our own shows comfortably.
My only hesitation to my review was the sheets on the bottom bunk seemed crumpled. I didn't know if they were used (meaning housekeeping just made the bed) or not. Based on the condition of the top bunk and our bed, we dismissed it and had no issues.
Overall, our stay was great and we plan to go back again as well as recommending it to friends.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie Net The staff makes the difference
The staff at this Holiday Inn were sincerely concerned that we were checked in promptly, even though we arrived a little before the normal check in time. We met friends that were also staying at this same Holiday Inn, and they were given an upgraded room because the one they reserved was not available. All of the employees would greet us with smiles any time we saw them. It was just a very pleasant experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tracy12345 Nice place, but...
WiFi was not reliable. Our room was clean and comfortable for the most part, the hotel did meet my expectations of a standard hotel (clean, comfortable, good TV programs, pool, unreliable WiFi as I anticipated, breakfast area semi-satisfactory), but I did not think the price was reasonable for what we got.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Viscountyyyyy Nice HIE Near Madison at a great price.
Very nice staff, great bed and although an older HIE very nicely kept and has charm appeal.
Only issue is really not many restaurants other than fast food nearby.
Still an absolute bargain for the price, one of the best value HIE I have stayed at, and I have stayed at many.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chey Clean building and room.
Couldn't ask for a nicer stay and a clean, fresh room! Staff were so pleasing.
The only thing that could have been better was the size of the pool. A bit small if too many people were to be in it at the same time but you just make do.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SB1127 I stand corrected
I want to correct a review that I submitted earlier... I was upset that the specific room we had reserved several months prior to our stay was not available when we checked in because the prior guest decided to stay another night. I posted my review and was contacted by managment. I want to say they were very apologetic and explained the situation that was out of thier control...I did not understand that prior to thier email. I want to say that I was only unhappy that our reservation was not available and there were a few issues with the pool, but that the hotel itself is very nice and clean. I am also sure that things can get busy and it is also understandable that they just hadn't tended to the pool recently. I apologize for my prior review. The managment offered to make it up to us, but appreciate the gesture! We will put this HIE on our list if we are in the area again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SB1127 WHAT GOOD ARE RESERVATIONS?
I BOOKED THIS HOTEL AND A SPECIFIC BUNKBED ROOM FOR MY KIDS 3 MONTHS OUT!!! WHEN WE ARRIVED AT THE HOTEL, THEY COULD NOT GIVE US THE BUNKBED ROOM WITH 2 TV'S BECAUSE THE PERSON THAT STAYED THE NIGHT BEFORE DECIDED TO STAY ANOTHER NIGHT. I FELT LIKE THE STAFF SHOULD HAVE SAID I AM SORRY THAT ROOM IS BOOKED FOR TONIGHT, BUT YOU MAY STAY IN ANOTHER ROOM. WHY MAKE A RESERVATION IF THEY ARE JUST GOING TO IGNORE IT???? I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED. THE CLERK GAVE US$20 OFF A 2 QUEEN ROOM WITH ONE TV AND DECIDED THAT WAS GOOD ENOUGH. WE PICKED THAT HOTEL BECAUSE OF THE BUNKBEDS. ALSO, THE POOL NEEDED ATTENTION. THE DRAINS WERE ALL PLUGGED AND THERE WAS STANDING WATER AROUND THE EDGE OF THE POOL AND SITTING IN THE DRAINS. THERE WAS ALSO SOMETHING NASTY FLOATING IN THE POOL, SO WE DIDN'T USE IT. ON THE PLUS SIDE, THE HOTEL WAS CLEAN AND THE BREAKFAST STAFF VERY FRIENDLY. THE FOOD WAS GOOD TOO.

Friendly greeting, nice staff. Property outdated, noisy air conditioner, paper thin walls. Breakfast area way too small for the number of rooms, no way to even get to the food without a long wait in line.

The front desk clerk refuse to let us park right outside the front doors, even after we explained that our truck got broken into at the last Holiday Inn. He had no compassion and could care less about the safety of our property. I wish there were more restaurants near by.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jeanracine Trip home "break-a-way" night
We were heading home time away at the Wisconsin Dells and stayed here to add one more night on our way home. We have stayed at the DeForest HI Express before and we are very pleased with the cleanliness, friendliness, comfort, and free breakfast that this hotel offers. It is right off the interstate, making it easy to get to and leave from. There are several fast food restaurants right there and a cheese mart across the street. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks for another great stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by timd44 Great stay
I really like the Holiday Inn Express hotels. They are clean and comfortable and conveniently located near highways. For the quality they are also very reasonably priced.
My only complaint - and this will probably sound silly - is that this property didn't have hot coffee/tea in the lobby area in the evening like most HIE properties seem to have. This was a little bit of a disappointment.
Other than this, the property was excellent and I'd stay there again.

I am allergic to cats and dogs and really appreciate your pet free facilities. I did itch a little bit at this hotel when walking through the lobby.
Otherwise we always enjoy staying at the HI Expresses.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RickJ1938 Bad Experience with Reservations
Made reservation by phone to redeem reward points. We asked
for a king size bed and first floor room.
Rewards told them we were coming but failed to say we wanted
a ground floor room with king bed.
They had no kings on first floor so they put us on third floor.
We are traveling haome from Florida and have a lot of food
stuffs to take to room for proper tempatures.
They then put us on first floor with two queen beds. As I walked
toward 123 a large dog srted barking at the door of 119. He
barked as I put a load in our room and allt he way as I walked
back to lobby.
We told girl at the desk about dog and she put us back up on
3rd floor in the king. Next day I talked to the mannager and she
said the computer from points never said 1st and King, so
they did not know.
45 minutes to check in as they had a wedding party comming
Your program for redemtion is not good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gespie Room layout
The thermostatt for A/C is located behind TV and nearly impossible to access.
I feel there is to much furniture in the room for it's size
I also don't care for bathroom layout with sink right inside door. if someone is at the sink you cannot get into the room

My family stayed in this hotel for three nights. The hotel was on the small side but had a full range of facilities. The wheelchair accessible bathroom with a roll in shower was beautiful. The room was a little small for a wheelchair user but adequate. The hotel staff members were friendly and helpful.

I have stayed here numerous times and the staff has always been incredibly nice, the breakfast is always hot & ready on time, the rooms are always perfectly clean & very comfortable.
It's a great stay outside of the Dells for a fraction of the cost.
You have a Culvers, Arbys, McD, Burger King, Taco Bell, Subway all right there.
