Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Snowsled1 Great Hotel Overall
The hotel was nicely updated. Enjoyed the linen on the bedding. Nice bathrooms! The main issue we had, as many people probably have is parking. The parking lot isn't very big, especially for such a popular snowmobiling area. We had a large trailer and weren't able to get up there till later at night. By the time we got there the main parking lot was completely full

We had a good stay here. The pool and hot tub were good for relaxing after skiing. The breakfast was great with hot sausage, cheese omelettes and good coffee. It does get a little crowded on the winter weekends, with snowmobilers, skiers

I always have a great experience when staying at a Holiday Inn Express. The staff are always friendly and make me feel very welcome and like family. When ever I am looking for a hotel to stay in, I check Holiday Inn Express first.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Detroit Area Guest Great stay at Christmas
Stayed 2 nights for family get-together at Christmas. Family recommended this place, was mildly concerned when I read negative reviews. However, we found the staff to be very outgoing and attentive, the room was spotless, and we could not believe all the choices for breakfast (sausage or bacon, simple cheese omelet, fresh biscuits, juice, 3 cereal choices, variety of coffees, tea, sweet rolls, pancake machine, etc.). Can't figure out what hotel the gripers were staying at; some people like to complain, or maybe they are the type that are angling for freebies or money back. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by unecessary Convenient and good breakfast
Good overall stay. Side door stuck in open position creating security issue and leaving out heat. Room heating controls didn't indicate temperature and even at lowest setting seemed hot and somewhat uncomfortable
TV guide too limited. Could not tell what shows were available since no information was offered.

Our granddaughter got married on Dec 29th in Gaylord. We live 88 miles from there. When we arrived we were given our room right away. The wedding was at 4pm and we got there at 12 noon and viola we were able to dress and relax way before the wedding. The room was a senior friendly room. It had safe, refrig, Tv and all the things that we needed. It was newly up-graded and beautiful. There was 2 beds..We only used one. We are seniors but we like closeness. We will always go to the Holiday Express when we go to Gaylord...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by traildog Should of asked for room change. Constant banging and smoke.
Should of asked for room change. Room was not clean and heavily worn. The outside door next to the room was constantly banging from smokes stepping out. Smoke filtered through the loose window. I have in profile NO first floor but got first floor. Then I find out my credit card was fraudulent used the next day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Visitor20131026 Good value
Comfortable quiet well appointed room - nice to have a large fridge, microwave and 2nd sink/vanity. Less breakfast options than the other Holiday Inn Express we've been to, but acceptable. Unclear whether the missing items (no bacon or eggs) had been consumed by the other guests or simply not provided. My husband enjoyed the pancake machine.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Worker2013October not like it used to be
Carpet dirty - compare the hallway floor carpet with where it goes up the wall.....big color difference. The carpet is dirty.
Staff overworked - 7 people in line at check-in on a Tuesday afternoon (10-8-13). Not enough staff or the check-in process is not efficient.
Breakfast - scrambled eggs hard and overcooked.
Shower head---what's up with that? How about a regular shower?
Overpriced for the quality / cleanliness of this property.
Toilets...too short, like sitting almost on the floor. Must be made for short people.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jmlo Clean Rooms!!
This was one of the cleanest motels I have stayed for a long time. I stay in a motel at least six times a year and this one rated at the top in everything.
Room was clean, beds were comfortable and you really didn't hear very much noise during the night from the hallways or I-75.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YooperSue Perfect for extended family get together
Our extended family (five grandparents, daughter and spouse, and two grandkids) have been getting together for a fall weekend for the past several years, usually at another area hotel. Due to a $30 room price difference, I decided to try the Gaylord Holiday Inn Express this time. We definitely will come here for our next gathering in midwinter!
We had a king room and loved the couch, chair, desk, refrigerator and microwave. The bed was comfy (not too soft) and the linens were smooth, not scratchy. The bath towels could have been softer, but they were better than some others we've stayed at. The room and bath were super clean and the only negative was that the carpeting, especially in the entry area of the room, needs replacing (badly stained). The pool and hot tub were excellent (pool was pleasantly cool but not too cold, hot tub was perfect). I wish the sauna had been operational.
The breakfast was probably the best free hotel breakfast ever - premade egg and cheese omelets, hard-boiled eggs, a variety of bread/muffins/bagel, lots of bacon, a cool automatic pancake maker, and variety of beverages (juices, milk, coffee, tea). The hotel was full so it was busy, but the attendant kept everything well supplied. That has not always been the case at other places we've stayed.
Check-in was smooth and we were able to get into our room prior to the posted time. However, the night clerk didn't know if the vending machine had microwave popcorn. The check-in clerk also was going to check on HI rewards (haven't used it for years), but never followed up and I forgot, too.

Our overnight stay met our expectations and will choose this hotel again when we are in the area. A minor complaint was the musty order of the shower curtain.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by uperonce Nice - needs an update
Nothing wrong with the service, or the staff. The hotel is looking/smelling a little long in the tooth. Could use some new carpet in the halls and the no-smoking room we had smelled an awful lot like stale cigarette smoke - it was clean, but it the smell was there.
