The front desk does not identify guest who are reward members....and the check in was a bit scattered. The front desk needs to be trained a little more. I may stay somewhere else next trip to Gaylord. Sad because my hotel of choice is IHG....

This was our third stay at the HI Express, Gaylord. We were very satisfied with the room, breakfast, and pool. We did note, however, that the Sauna was out of order as it was last year in July. We will stay there again as it is an excellent value!

We have stayed at this HI Express numerous times. Until this recent stay we had the same complaints with each visit 1) poor front desk staff; 2) poor internet; 3) breakfast started too late. However, this year THEY GOT EVERYTHING RIGHT!!! Friendly and knowledgeable front desk staff; excellent in-room internet service; breakfast started early enough for us to enjoy it. In fact the room was so comfortable that we nearly overslept! Thank you to the management and staff of this property for paying attention to and then fixing the issues that had been problems in the past. We look forward to staying here again next year, and also have recommended this property to friends for this year. One minor request - could you please have ketchup to go with the eggs for breakfast?

When we checked in the girl that checked us in did not seem to know too much of her job. First of all she says this will be a cash stay. We booked it as a rewards night. She seemed stunned and said well I will have someone else change that for me I told her I have the paperwork in the car to prove it but she said that is OK she did not need to see it.. She never told us what time check out was....nor when breakfast hours were. She never asked us if we wanted 500 points or the goodie bag that a Platinum member usually gets. We asked the desk clerk the next morning if we were given points or not. She said we were given points. Which is what we wanted anyways. If she is new she really needed someone working right along side with her til she knew her job. She did not seem very confident.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrickandFrack Friendly staff and clean room
The Front Desk staff was great and made us feel right at home. Our room was spacious and clean. We really like having the extra sink and bar area in the room, ( room 314). That is a very nice room. The breakfast was good, the area it was served in was very clean and the lady attendant did a teriffic job. This is a well run Hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rosebud777 Great experience, wonderful breakfast, comfortable sleeping
Loved this site! The staff were out-standing (especially the lady at breakfast bar). The breakfast was very impressive! I came to Gaylord to spend time with a friend and we both enjoyed our stay. We were felt to feel very welcome and enjoyed the cabin environment with the fireplace in lobby. I will surely be back!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Barbaro Great Hotel
This hotel stay was excellent, however the breakfast was not. It is no reflection of the local staff or owner/operator. The food quality was extremely poor, virtually inedible. Holiday Inn Express would fair better limiting continental breakfast to higher quality pastries, muffins, fruits, oatmeal, cold cereal, toast, coffee, juice etc. No hot foods as I understand the cost to supply and prepare.
Keep it simple but higher quality.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JRk1974 dated hotel, needs a face lift
Stayed here on business and realized why I stay at other properties in the area.
You cant easily access electrical outlets for medical equipment bedside because they are blocked by the bed.
The fitness room is a joke from equipment to the television.
This is a $60 a night property that goes for a three figure price.

The rooms are great. Nicely cared for, clean as they can be and the beds are up there with the very best I've seen in any hotel. I very seldom get a good nights sleep in any hotel. I drive further just to stay in this place. Not your usual Holiday Inn Express.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel the first time I had no problems what so ever. This time the internet was out and I was there on a business trip so that was a bummer. I needed it to complete some work. Other than the staff is very friendly and helpful! I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ms. B. Kids loved the pool and room!
Two pre-teen boys and I visited Gaylord on our way to view the Straits of Mackinac in springtime, still covered with ice. Our plan was to cross the bridge! The guys had never been up North that far. We had a fantastic time. They wanted to stay in a hotel with a pool. Holiday Inn Express fit the bill, with pool, nearby location, comfy beds and pillows, and, of course, free breakfast! The staff was welcoming, the bowl of fruit in the lobby was a nice touch, and so were the free newspapers. Plus coffee around the clock, anytime, is always a plus.This place rocks. I recommend it!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by George LS Dirty room and poor service
TV remote did not work, took it to front desk and got another remote. It did not work, I was told basically so sad but nothing she could do. Was able to get TV on maually but sound went up so loud and than we couldn't turn it off finally unplugged TV to get it off. Front desk said there was nothing they could do. So after travelling all day from Elizabeth Town Tennesee we had no TV. As a gold priority card holder I expected better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sleepless1054 Construction with no advance notice
I booked a room for a relaxing weekend get away. I wasn't informed of hallways carpet replacement until my arrival. Then the clerk wanted me to take a queen room instead of a King, very persistently. The very noisy construction went on from 7 a.m. - 9.p.m. all weekend. Sunday morning I could not get to the breakfast room without leaving the hotel. When I went to leave Sunday morning, they had my room door taped off so I couldn't leave the room! Inexcusable !!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DempseyZooKeeper Overall great hotel
We used the large suite for 2 nights. It was perfect for us. There were six of us so a second bathroom would have been nice.
Our only complaint was trying to sleep at night. The room was very warm
