Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GG82014 Good Location
Hotel was in a good location. We experienced the drunk wedding guests as well. Appears they had a food fight in the hallways. Loose food was everywhere. They also disturbed others with their rowdiness into the wee hours of the morning and completely disregarded other paying guests. Also while waiting for the elevator, when the door opened it was obvious the immature males had passed gas and they thought it was hilarious. We ended up taking the stairs to avoid the stench. In my opinion, with all the havoc they caused they should have been asked to leave the hotel. This type of behavior should not be tolerated under any circumstances. Hotel personnel was aware but did not take proper action. They seemed more interested in appeasing the wedding party and tolerating their out control actions during their stay rather than considering the other civil acting hotel guests. Hotel management needs leadership courage to handle difficult situations when they arise. On a separate note, the fabric on the chairs in the hotel room was very worn and dirty. Many hotels are moving toward faux leather chairs in hotel rooms since they wear better over time. Also, the sheets on one of the double beds was not clean. Had strands of hair and spots on the sheets. The daily housekeeping was not that great. Right now this hotel is fairly nice. However, I can vision it looking run down very quickly if changes are not implemented. Will have to give some thought to if we would stay here in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Erin56 Comfortable bed and pillows and breakfast variety
My son and I stayed at this hotel while driving from Michigan to Florida. The room was spacious, clean, and the beds were comfortable. I was surprised to find a little refrigerator and microwave. It was extremely nice that they had Direct TV so there were many channels to choose. The hotel is in a quiet area near some restaurants and a movie theater. There were many choices at the free breakfast and check in and check out were quick. The staff was friendly. There is a free shuttle from the Flint airport so that was a bonus. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Will not allow outside food delivery to the room, not sure if it's a safety issue or not. Won't be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Richie Rich UPS Great front desk staff.
Holly at the front desk was excellent. She was very friendly and helpful in making future reservations. One thing I do not understand. Each day my bathroom sink soap and cup were discarded by the hotel cleaning staff. When I would enter the bathroom the next time I had to open a new bar of soap and unwrap a new cup, inconvenient to the guest. I don't get it, why are these things wasted daily??????

This is a nice hotel. the room was big and comfortable. However I knew is would be a tough night when checked in there was a wedding party of at least 30 drinking at the main entrance at about 5pm. They returned again later in the evening drunk and loud. A drunk lady fell on the stairs near our room and screamed and cried. The paramedics showed up. It felt more like a frat house than a hotel. I have had several bad experiences at holiday inns with drunks and unsupervised youth hockey teams. I wish they could do a better job of enforcing their rules so that everyone could have a restful stay.

A little snafu at the check-in, but they got it straightened out. Otherwise, just what you'd expect from Holiday Inn Express -- quality accommodations. Bonus: Beautiful view of wetlands out the west-facing windows.

We were traveling to Holly Recreation area for a race and looking for a nice reasonable place to stay found this Hotel I was a little leery about the location and the reputation of Flint,MI I was extremely surprised how nice it was and the treatment we received. Rooms are nice and the common area are great with the breakfast.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Canoe86 If you want clean towels, don't leave a stuffed animal on the bed.
We've stayed at this property a few times over the last 4 years, so we are familiar with it. Not sure if ownership has changed or management, but the service has dropped. Let's be clear, this is not a dump by any means, BUT, the overall quality expected for this level of hotel is quite poor.
We had two rooms for this stay, which turned out to be a lucky thing for us. The vast majority of front desk personnel, while not rude, were at best disinterested and flat. An example is, a toilet in one room was not working properly. This was reported to the front desk, with the response of "ok", I took that to mean, it would get fixed......well......two days later....nope. Not an explanation or a follow up which is what I would think is a basic operating procedure. LUCKY, we had another option with a second room and a working toilet.
Two days in a row, there was no towel service or room service. A note was left on the bed explaining since there were personal items on the bed, the room could not be cleaned. So, I guess, we should have packed ALL of our belongings each day. I can understand the beds, if items are on it, but why not at least change out towels? or stock toilet paper? Again, thankfully, we had a second room to fall back on.
One of the rooms on check in, had keys from the previous guest in it, as well as a bottle of cleaning product, and a tooth flosser. Nice touch to check into a room such as that, maybe the previous person left things on the bed and this room can never be serviced again......just a theory.
Beds were comfortable.
Direct TV with tons of channels and probably the best TV quality I've had in a hotel like this. That was a plus for sure.

There were people everywhere....a party in the common area, left no where to just sit as a family group to talk. The people that were having the party were very rude and loud. We thought it was a public area for a reason. Seemed overbooked

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MCWN Best Place to Stay in Grand Blanc/Flint Area
We visit the Grand Blanc area several times a year to visit elderly relatives and find the Holiday Inn Express our favorite place to stay. It is clean, comfortable, friendly and convenient to the places we have to go in the area. As long as the HI Express maintains their high standards, this will continue to be our choice of places to stay on future trips.
The staff in the breakfast area is particularly accommodating and we also love being able to walk through the main check-in area and pick up a nice, fresh cookie several times a day!

I've been a patron of this hotel since it was constructed and initially opened. Since the change in ownership the quality of this hotel experience has diminished significantly. This hotel is one step away from being pulled from the IHG portfolio.

This was my fifth stay at HIE Grand Blanc. We arrived early on a busy Saturday and there were two wedding parties at the busy hotel.
Greta, the desk clerk, went out of her way to assure that everyone was accommodated as quickly as possible. No one was turned away despite arriving three hours before check in time. This
is the type of service that is remembered and creates return visits.
We'll definitely stay there next time. It's a great experience at a great location!
