Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ken Doll Looks good, details are lousy.
There were 4 of us staying in the room, but housekeeping always left us only 3 bath towels for 3 straight nights. I had to ask for more, and they forgot to bring them up twice. The elevator was full of fingerprints, as well as the windows in our room, BEFORE we even stayed there one night. Toilet paper was always low, and the Kleenexes were not filled one day. The pool towels were usually empty. The hallways have a lot of dust along the baseboards. there was a Band-Aid in the hot tub area that was there for 3 days, yuck. Breakfast was very good though!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terri16 Clean motel great staff
We stayed at this motel for a leisure trip. The staff was very friendly the rooms were clean, the breakfast was good and the kids had a fun time in the pool area. Great place to bring kids as the pool wasn't real deep.

Clean, easy to get find, great parking, and no surprises.
Rooms were clean and neat, and the floor we were on was very quiet. Breakfast area was neat and clean and the food was maintained as fresh.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doets Great breakfast
Nicely decorated hotel, unfortunately not clean. It needs a good vacuum. The flowers in the pots next to the entrance looked very sad. This doesn't give a good first impression. Drank my morning coffee outside on the patio of the pool and the patio furniture was full with bird poop. The breakfast is great. The pancake machine was a lot of fun and yes, I wished I had a machine like that at home!

We were in the area for a family wedding. While I do wish we would have been able to check in early as we did have to drive back between the ceremony and dance to check-in, the staff was pleasant. The room was on the third floor and very quiet. The water pressure from shower head was wonderful and the hot water was extremely plentiful. The king sized bed was very firm and comfortable.

This hotel is one of Holiday Inn Express' best. For the price, we were very happy with the size of room

Everything was fine but the noise outside the room (from a vent or something) was annoying.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ozarkokie A great surprise!
We only stopped in Winona because it was a convenient driving distance for the day and had a HI Express. Imagine our surprise to discover this charming little island city in the Mississippi River. I wish we could have stayed another night so we could have explored the historic buildings and other attractions more.
We had a one-bedroom suite, and it was the most pleasant room we had during our eight-night trip. Everything was just as it should be, convenient, comfortable and clean. We both slept well. My husband got up first and he enjoyed being able to come into the living room portion and use the computer without waking me up. After our brief look at Winona, we decided we'd like to return. And when we do, we know just where to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by papag Excellent accommodations and nice hotel
My wife and I were in town on business and stayed at this hotel. It was very nice. The rooms were very clean, the beds comfortable, and the overall stay was great!! It was a little pricey, more than we normally would pay for a Holiday Inn Express and Suites. If we are ever back in the area, I would definitely consider staying here.

We rolled in late and were ready to relax. Everything was clean and comfortable. I forgot my phone charger and the staff member at the front desk offered to let me borrow her personal phone charger. That was extremely kind!

Having sampled virtually all of Winona's hotels and motels, the Holiday Inn Express is the best.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mariposie Very spacious and attractive room
We were very happy with our room, clean, comfortable, spacious.
Bathroom very nice also.
I did ask for a shower cap but the desk didn't have any.
We felt the lobby area and especially the eating area was very dark and uninviting.
Outdoors attractive with beautiful pots of flowers at the entrance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jdaddy Home-type relaxing feeling.
The proximity of Holiday Inn Express Winona to shopping, recreation, dining, and transportation routes is a no-brainer for our future stays in Winona. To pile on the benefits, it was clean, comfortable, friendly, and affordable.
The only change I would make would to find a way to add a universal machine to the fitness room, but I'm grasping for something to criticize and that is the only thing I can reasonably find.
We had a wonderful stay!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MickeyS Good Place to Stay
Winona is a great vacation spot and the Holiday Inn Express is sure to enhance that vacation experience. The hotel is nicely located off Hwy 61 and very convenient and accessible to the area sights. You are within blocks of Lake Winona which offers scenic walks and areas to bicycle. Rooms are comfortable and the in-room refrigerator is a nice bonus.
There is a complimentary hot breakfast which includes the standard things, but also scrambled eggs, sausages and biscuits with sausage gravy - all a bit more varied than most free hotel breakfasts. The only issue we had was the lack of a variety of fresh fruit - all that was available were bananas.
As far as the rooms go, try to get a room on the side of the hotel away from the parking lot as this was quite noisy in the evening. All in all a good choice for the Winona area.

There are not many hotel choices in Winona, but this would be a top pick in any other community.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tailwagger Great place to stay
Our room was ready and waiting for us - the King Executive suite is a great choice with the extra room. Housekeeping was very flexible with cleaning when we were ready and the front desk was very friendly. Breakfast was great- my only comment would be to upgrade the coffee or have a stronger choice. WE have stayed here twice and I will stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jayfoto Nice rooms and nice location
This was nice place to stay in Winona. You will find this property a little better than many Holiday Inn Express sites. The room was big and comfortable with plenty of space to relax. The Internet was good, both connection and speed.
The only problem I had was the mattress. It was very hard and I really wasn't able to get a deep sleep.
I would stay at this location again if I was ever to go to Winona.

Have stayed at this motel in the past, has a nice little area for our grand daughter to swim in. Other than the lower TV stations not working it is a nice place to stay with a restaurant across the parking lot, so you really don't have to run around to go anywhere.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by usher00 Housekeeping stole my belt
I definitely left a belt in the room. When I called the next day they said they didn't have it. They definitely stole my belt.
Climate control is awful as well. You can't use the AC when outside temperature drops too low yet that doesn't keep your room from getting to 75 degrees.

Always enjoy the stay at the HI Ex Winona. Great rooms, staff, and hotel layout. The breakfast is great and the rooms are quiet and clean. About the only other thing I could ask for would be to acknowledged as a Platinum member (no bottle of water, etc).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ezweber Beautiful Hotel, Staff needs to smile
We recently stayed at this hotel for a wedding weekend. The hotel is beautiful! We have stayed at other Holiday Inn Expresses and this hotel had one of the biggest rooms we have ever stayed in. We didn't have the kids with, so we didn't check out the pool area. I did peek in and saw they had a smaller pool for younger kids. That is a great bonus for families with multiple age kids.
The only negative was the front desk staff when we arrived. Maybe she was having a bad day, but there was no smile to be found. She did act very professionally, but there was no warm welcome.
Breakfast was typical and good. The rooms were very clean.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 4Boysplus1 Many good qualities but lack of CLEANLINESS overrides them all
This is our second time staying at this hotel. The location, pool, and breakfast options are ideal for our family. However this time, it was obvious that our room had NOT had a true cleaning before our stay. There were bottles of partially used shampoo in the shower, old food condiments on the table (butter and peanut butter), and towels in the closet. Yes the beds were made and new towels were in the bathroom but the other items made you wonder how much had been done. Also, both times we went to the pool there were ZERO clean towels. The second time was at 7:30 am when you would think there would certainly be new towels.
We are hoping that this was just a bad weekend and that the next time we return it will be improved as our stay in the area is an annual event for our family.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by purpleflower They do not recognize Platinum Member
I checked in and I was thanked for being a Platinum member but did not get anything for it. No free water, no points and no room upgrade. The room was larger than most BUT there was a lot of dust/hair on the phone. We checked out early so I did not get to sample the free breakfast. I thought the price of the room was pretty steep.
