Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NurseBee business trip ran long-snow came early
I stayed at this hotel a year ago, and was not planning on staying overnight on this trip. However, the late Spring snow storm had begun, I got lost trying to get to the highway, but somehow as I found the highway I also drove by the hotel. The storm was such, the hour late I elected to stay overnight. I had no reservation, but they had room.

For the most part, this was a very nice hotel. It's close to MSU and there are plenty of choices for nearby restaurants. My only complaint is the way I was treated for the WiFi issue in my room. I initially called the front desk and the lady basically swore I was doing something wrong in trying to connect. Since it was late, I didn't mess with it anymore that evening. The next day after returning to my room in the afternoon, I tried the WiFi again. When I couldn't get logged in, I tried the front desk again. This time, I was given a phone number to contact their technology helpdesk. After spending at least 15 minutes on the phone, the technician told me that he would need to contact level 2 support to get the WiFi problem resolved. He also said I would receive a phone call in the next few minutes. After waiting about 5 minutes, I decided to take a shower. While I was in the shower, an IT service tech left a message to say the problem has been fixed. Sure enough, I was able to log into the WiFi system and it worked great. I have stayed at quite a few hotels and this is the first and I hope the last time I will have to troubleshoot my own WiFi connection problem. Ironically, I was able to connect to the nearby Comfort Inn's conference center's WiFi just fine. Other than this unfortunate mishap with the WiFi, my stay was very pleasant and the room was fantastic. The size of the room and having two separate furnaces/ACs (bedroom and living room) made my stay extremely comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TQk27 Nice stay
We really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Okemos. The beds were great and the room was awesome with a HUGE Jacuzzi tub we weren't expecting. The biggest disappointment was they had gotten rid of the hot tub by the pool in lieu of adding a bigger work out room. I wasn't interested in swimming but I could have really enjoyed that hot tub while my kids swam.

The staff was very friendly & helpful at check-in and throughout our stay. The guest room & public areas were all clean and orderly. The bathroom was large and clean; we really liked the new shower head & plush towels. The pool was warm & we used it with our Granddaughters both days. It was nice that towels were available in the pool room. We thought the breakfast was excellent. The food was fresh and a good variety. It was a great facility for a weekend getaway and we will definitely go back again.

Front desk was very friendly, and helpful! They helped me get into a room at 1pm, they were able to set a room aside once cleaned! They went out of their way to make their guest feel at home! And of course, was granted a late check out...

My family and I stayed while on a MSU college visit. Our room was very clean!!Staff was very friendly and helpful. I've stayed in higher end hotels that were not as clean as this one. We will stay here again if we're the Okemos area again.

I like the feather free rooms, the nearly-firm beds, and the local staff are top notch - friendly, helpful, and promptly attend to requests for help, above and beyond the call. Will stay there whenever I'm in the MSU/Okemos area.

1. For the price, not comparable to other IHG properties.
2. How do they slice that bacon so thin, almost only one side to it.
3. Outdated amenities.
4.IHG loyalty members receive zero recognition on the day I was there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joe F Nice place to stay
Very nice hotel room. Even had the little extras like a clip on the window curtain to keep it closed, not just most of the way closed. Breakfast was very good as well and the pool looked nice. We did not use it but many people were. Go to breakfast early if they are busy because seating is limited. That was the only drawback to this hotel. I would definitely stay here again!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BenBG No help for the restless.
Entire hotel was full of utility workers, which is understandable considering the recent ice storms in the area, but they were drunk and loud from 12;00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. and when we called the front desk for help at 4:30 a.m. ( I am not going to confront a bunch of drunk people) they said they would call the room and resolve the issue. They never called, they never helped and no one even bothered to follow up or even ask how my stay was when I checked out. It was terrible, I understand that they can not control all guests, but to make no effort at all and promise you will. Well, needless to say my wife and I got absolutely no sleep, and for what they charge a night for a stay, I will likely never stay at a Holiday Inn again and recomment others to not do so as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pgwess Christmas Week Ice Storm
We booked 2 rooms during the widespread power-outage that began Dec22. The hotel itself only had partial power too, but the staff still worked to do whatever they could. They were upfront about the partial power outages at the hotel and what we could expect. We were grateful that we had a place to stay and the stay was pretty good under the circumstances.
Breakfast could have been a little better and the jets in our whirlpool tub didn't work, but like I said, we were navigating a power outage at Christmas, so we didn't complain.

We were able to book the room at our local HI after the devastating ice storm and power outage in our area. All went well with the hospitality and accomodations, until the last night of our 3 night stay. Our power was returned to our home at about 4:00 pm. As we had no idea when power would be restored, we were still checked into the hotel for that 4th evening. I arrived prior to 5:00 pm to check out of the hotel. Even under the devastating circumstances and already unusual outlay of money for the hotel, at Christmas time, we were still charged for the 4th night, when we did not even stay at the hotel that 4th night. There was no "disaster rate" offered and only a little sympathy from the front desk, as they indicated we could contact management or Holiday Inn at the 800 number to voice our issues. I have been a loyal Priority Club "Platinum" member for over 20 years and will not let this one bad experience change my mind about Holiday Inn overall. However, I thought my opinion on this situation should be posted.

I am a college student getting into the busy world of business consulting, and I had my first traveling experience for work. My place of work set me up in the Holiday Inn in Okemos, and I was more than pleased. The room was great, the location was great, and I had had zero complaints!

The outside of the location was nice. The inside of the rooms and hallways were a bit dated. We had a problem with the heater in our room ...but the staff stepped up and moved us to another room. The adjustment was nice and orderly. They ( she ) was very helpful.

I was very happy with our stay. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. I liked having the option of having firm & soft pillows. I wished that we had gotten or asked for a king size bed but that was my fault for not asking. Pool area was very nice as well. Over all an excellent stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sparklintan Good Stay
I stayed at this hotel for one night, because I was in town on business. There was nothing spectacular about the hotel, it was pretty on par with most Holiday Inn's. They had a decent breakfast selection and the room was clean. The only thing that would concern me was that I did not see an elevator anywhere on the property. If you have problems going upstairs (my room was upstairs and I lugged my suitcase up there), then request a room on the ground level. Other than that it was good.

Everything was great except that we were unable to change the temp in the room at all. The only we could do was turn off the ac/heating unit. Being that it was late fall, it was pretty chilly and we could NOT get warm!

We stayed on a MSU football weekend and the hotel was very quiet. Wonderful with a wide variety for the full hot breakfast. Less than 3 miles from the mall and easy 10 minute drive to campus.
