Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Miramira75 Over the top friendly
We had a great stay in Portage. The staff (especially Michelle at the front desk) helped me save money on my room, gave me advice on the area, and was so helpful to make our stay wonderful.

I definitely enjoyed staying at the Holiday Inn Express this passed weekend while celebrating my 30th high school reunion. It's an ideal location each time I visit my hometown and they were very accommodating to my needs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bradley T. Ok for the price
The staff was friendly and the woman handling the breakfast was quick, efficient and always smiling.
The bathroom shower and floor was not clean. The grout for the shower and floor tile was grey and brown and there was a hair stuck to the tub when I went in. This won't allow me to say what kind but you can guess. You could hear the parking lot and street noise very clearly through the wall as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spokesgirl Great hotel
The hotel and rooms were very clean, spacious and nice. The check-in was very friendly and the process was fast. The free breakfast was very good but I missed the signature Pancake maker that to our find at most HIE properties. Great hotel but the nightly rate was a bit high.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by michaelmjd Awesome Service
Everything was excellent, but especially the service of the staff. The meeting room we used was set up perfectly and the staff checked often to make sure everything was taken care of.
The room was clean and comfortable and just what we needed.
Breakfast was amazing and plenty for our family.

Close to the ball fields, nice view of the fire works and an excellent staff. Would be nice to check in early but system does not allow. We stayed in a king room with the sofa and by adding a roll away was able to fit two extra ball player with ease.
Staff started the buffet in the morning early to accommodate our early game. All-in-all well worth the price and again the staff was great.

Staff was exceptionally helpful & friendly & courteous with our visit and schedule. We stayed for a baseball tournament & allowed early late check out at no charge.
All the staff took the time to inquire about our sons games and standings in tournament, they really made us welcome.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Murphyboy Good location
Everything was as expected at a Holiday Inn Express. The room was very comfortable, TV had a variety of channel choices and room had a fridge and microwave. Breakfast bar was well stocked and cookies were provided in thye evening. I like to use my phone as an alarm but had to move some connected things around to plug in my charger. Really need to put the proper shower curtain liner in the shower. Should be angled to prevent water from going all over the floor.

I really don't stay in motel/hotel, but due to a insurance claim I found myself out of my house for 3 months.
Went to this Holiday express because it was close to my home that was under construction. Did not know what to expect, but to my surprise this was the best decision I have ever made. This over all staff are the BEST.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by D Nee Exceptional Front Desk - Comfy Bed
We arrived late, nearly 11pm, and the front desk clerk was ready to get us quickly to our room. I had reserved a room for 4 people but didn't realize that the bunk beds in the room are designed for small children. The front desk person quickly recognized that our teenage boys were not going to fit comfortably there in my reserved room. She explained the problem and immediately offered to provide a better fit for my family at no extra cost. In 2 minutes she had the paperwork corrected and we were on our way up to our room. Remarkably kind and helpful. Comfy bed - yummy breakfast food - people there were quick to refill the serving trays, clear tables and even clean up spilled milk. Happy, happy!

We arrived exhausted and sore from 10 days of packing and moving. I was immediately greeted as a Premier member and given a complimentary upgrade to a king jacuzzi suite and boy was that appreciated! While we were getting our things, the staff found us a great local restaurant where we could eat and relax. The hotel isn't the most modern but clean and lacking nothing. When we left, we got a hand written "thank you for staying with us" note. That is a first! Of all the hotels I have stayed in around the world, the stay here ranks in the top 5!

Arriva at the Express was great the desk clerk made us feel right at home. The rooms were clean with extreme attention to detail on cleanness. All amenities in the room were right in place. I just loved my stay. This is a regular trip to Chicago for me and I will stop there again.
Also good access to the highway for going to downtown Chicago.
Only thing a missed was a Waffle grill or pancake machine. Just spoiled I guess (LOL)

We were on our way to Notre Dame to visit the legendary campus. We were originally booked at the Fairmont in Chicago. We had a busy Memorial Day weekend planned to celebrate my upcoming retirement. Unfortunately my wife got sick and we couldn't get beyond Portage. The people were especially considerate of my wife's illness. They made us feel very welcome and comfortable.
In the morning we were assured that we could have the room until 2:00 PM if my wife still needed to recuperate. She rallied and we went on our way.
Our stay was very pleasant, and I would recommend the hotel and staff highly.

Staff was excellent! I was promised 500 pts and have received them. I was recognized as a Platinum member and my room was upgraded. Very friendly and accommodating staff (especially the clerks) along with a very comfortable room.. I will be back in the near future as I travel approximately 120 nights out of the year and this will be one of my stopping points

Portage is the perfect stop in a drive to see our daughter in college. We were not at the hotel very long (less than 12 hours), but we're pleased with the location and comfort for a quick stop.

Air Conditioning problems. Cold Air would not stay on. It would cut off after 5 minutes and the room got hot. The morning clerk told me she would give me 5000 points for the inconvenience, however, I did not recieve the points.
