Construction is under way...... I am sure it will be fantastic once it is all complete :-) Fire alarm going off at 5:15 in the morning - not my idea of a great stay. No one knew what to do, we all just stood in the hall way. Approx 15 minutes until someone got through to the front desk and we were told to was not a fire. Could not get back to sleep :-(
Staff was friendly.

Recently redecorated. Outstanding staff, friendly and helpful. Nightly happy hour was appreciated after a long drive! Price seemed high, but the stay was very comfortable.

Room was not really ready to be rented out. When it was mentioned to the front desk, the only reply was "Sorry".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cbqjville Renovation Complete
We have stayed at the Janesville HIE for many years. Now that the renovations to the rooms, lobby and breakfast areas are done, it seems like a new facility. The new furniture in the room is very functional and attractive. The renewed bathroom was very well done. We especially like the walk in shower, which for us older folks is a lot easier and safer than climbing over the edge of the tub.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MartyMN Don't plan on staying here again.
hotel was under contruction, glue or some sticky substance all over elevator floors and in hallways outside, in some cases almost pulling your shoes off. My room was apparently recently rennovated, but I realliy didn't like it. The color choices were funky, the hidden fridge was VERY annoying (have to open two doors to get inside, and it's not clear which side the doors open from. Apparently you are expected to sleep in broad day light because you cannot close teh light blocking curtains. The track for them only sits at the outside edges of the windows, so those light blocking curtains are only their for decoration. Furthermore, there is a very annoying lighted headboard that I could not find a way to shut off. I didn't get the point of that at all. And between the two light sources, the room was always too bright. The 3rd floor ice maker makes enough noise to scare the dead. The front lobby is a big open area that they don't seem to know what to do with. The first couple of days, it was just open (which is just fine). There is an electric fire place on one side that is kind of interesting. The next couple of days, they put patio furniture in the lobby, pretty much right in the way of traffic flow. None of these things really seemed to quality for things I'd contact customer service to try to correct other than maybe telling me how to unplug the headboard light, but it wouldn't have mattered with the curtain situation. The only positives I have at my stay are that my room was clean, the bathroom was VERY clean, my door keys worked every time, and the breakfast selection was good. I don't plan on staying here again next time I go to Janesville.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Check in poor, room dirty
We were very disappointed with the check in commotion when we arrived. It was not busy but the staff was extremely uncaring if we were checked in or not. When we questioned why the rate was $20 more than when we stayed last year she said the renovations have to be paid for someway. Then, on to the room....last year was satisfactory. This year the room was generally unclean which was evidenced by dust on the furniture, especially the tv stand and the desk chair had so much junk on the seat we had to place a towel on it before we dared to sit on it. Truly not to the standards we have come to appreciate at Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by David 48 Nice Remodel BUT!!!
I liked the newly remodeled Janesville Holliday IN Express, but they were still having some problems that affected the guests. I went to get some ice on the 3rd floor and the machine wasn't working. I went to the 2nd floor and the ice machine wasn't working. I had to go to the 1st floor to get any ice. The outlets on one side of my bed weren't working. I guess during the remodel someone disconnected it and forgot to reconnect the outlet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sgt717 Nice place
This property appeared to be fairly new and nice. They have a VERY large parking lot which was perfect for me as I was driving a 40' bus despite being directly adjacent to the interstate and my room being on that side of building it was very quite. I will say this there is a truck stop across the driveway probably 400 yards or so away it didn't bother me as I am a truck driver but just FYI over all great place and highly recommended

I have never been treated so rudely by staff in all my life. Because of the rudeness, I will never stay here again unless it is my only option. FRONT DESK is horrible. I work in Customer Service myself, own my own company. I would never treat a customer they way I was treated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hurricanered17 Comfortable beds, newly renovated
Extra construction materials laying around in the common areas, and new hallway carpet hadn't been completely tacked down yet, but it wasn't noisy, and the beds were very comfortable. I would stay here again.

We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express in preparation
for Fireside Play and it was excellent; outstanding staff,
comfortable room and we felt safe; had some problems with TV, but staff solved to complete satisfaction.. Breakfast was better than most and was
happy to learn that they had "happy hour in the pm".
Overall, a great experience in a newly remodeled
facility. Very comfortable and clean.
Thank you all for a great staff and experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by idoc4jc Nice Stay
The stay was wonderful. My kids enjoyed the pool and I enjoyed the hot tub. The pool temperature was perfect which made the swim bearable. Typically indoor pools are too cold.
The breakfast wasn't exactly high quality but there were plenty of healthy options and the breakfast staff were extremely helpful.
The only suggestion to make this stay even better (and for future customers): The happy hour (which includes free popcorn/beer/sodas/wine) was from 5-630 pm which I found to be a little weird since that is typically a person's dinner time. I would have found it a lot more helpful if the time frame was moved up a little bit from about 3-530 when people are checking in and it's a little too early for supper yet the stomach needs a little snack to carry over until dinner time. Regardless, the gesture of actually having free popcorn and drinks for people is wonderful customer service.
The rooms were clean, updated and the beds were so comfortable. The overall appearance of the hotel was modern and beautiful. This new renovation is a huge change from the previous look. We stayed at this hotel approximately 5 years ago and had excellent customer service at that time as well. Thank you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WLP1227 Fantastic Experience!
The stay at this hotel could not have been any better. It was perfect. The staff was very friendly, and even more helpful when we had questions about where to go for certain services.
The hotel looks very elegant in the main entrance, and still elegant through out the entire hotel to the room.
The breakfast is plentiful, and there are many choices to choose from as far as food an beverages.
The hotel offered a "free happy hour" on the Monday we were there, and it was fantastic. They literally have a bar tender popping pop corn and serving wine and beer to guests. Unbelievably generous.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jill 2025 New hotel! Would recommend, convenient location
I liked how this was a newer hotel. The bed was soft and comfortable. Convenient location for us.
A couple of suggestions, simply because it is new and I don't think have been noticed yet:
The hot tub water was uncomfortably hot. Like, VERY HOT. A few people couldn't stay long in it because of it being very HOT.
I stayed in a King suite with a pullout sofa. The sofa was perpendicular to the bed. When having to use the pullout, can't do so because it bumps into the built in end tables. We had to move the couch to be parallel to the bed to be able to use the pull out bed.
I would stay here again, friendly staff, especially those that prepared the breakfast. Convenient location, soft beds, great water pressure. It was still being worked on, but no noise really.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kever Worst ever
If you don't want your card key to work more than 60 percent of the time making you go down to have it redone - go here
If you like to not see out of a clean window -go here
If you don't want your coffee maker to work - go here
If you don't need your room temperature to go below 72 degrees - go here
I you want a shower head to fall down all the time - go here. I needed to get PVC and cable ties to keep it up!
If you don't want you door to close properly -go here
If you want to be kept up until 0300 because of noise -go here
On the bright side (the only one) the breakfast person and food were above average
Honestly though this was one of the worst HIE I have been during my entire traveling career. Hopefully the management will make corrective action.

Both of the ladies that serve the breakfast are fantastic, especially Charlene. They are so quick in replacing low items and actually pick up the guests plates for them...I expect to "bus my own table" at these types of breakfast but they are too quick!
The pillows are way too long. Seemed difficult to get used to but once I did they were fine.
Our air conditioner in the room went out and they were VERY quick to replace. Maintenance staff are wonderful.

It would have been nice to be advised that the hotel was under construction when I made the reservation. Full rates should not be charged when the hotel is being renovated.
Breakfast was DISGUSTING!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HMMMMMMMMMMM Nice but loud bathroom fans were very annoying--unavoidable.
Nice new renovations--however the fans were way too loud in the bathroom--making us want to use the bathroom in the dark to avoid the noise. The room heater/AC was also super noisy.
We appreciate the pillow choices and bedding and wifi and TV. If the bathroom lights worked without all the noise, the entire experience would have been way better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hockey parents Checkout time
As a group we were a little disappointed with the lack of flexibility offered by the front desk on 2/23/14. We were in town for hockey games (several families). One game early am and one mid afternoon. We simply asked for a 12:30 exception to better accommodate our schedules and were denied. When you travel all winter it is the little things that make a difference, some positive, some negative.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Walter52 Shopworn and cluttered
The ground outside the main entrance was carpeted with cigarette butts. Inside is cluttered. I know they are remodeling, but they don't have to have construction clutter stacked everywhere. The remodeling is at least 5 years overdue and I might say 10. All the furniture in our room was very beat up and worn. I use a computer monitor that is bigger than the TV in our room. Cleanliness was good, but the room was overall shabby. Basically, organized, neat and tidy is not a priority here. I might try it again in a couple years after the remodeling is done. Not what I expect from HI Express.
