I stay at this location and have for the past 9, on a monthly basis for business. It is a great location for easy access, to major roadways. The staff is only friendly and inviting, welcoming me back.

I was on business trip. I stay to that place once or twice a year one week at least.
Very good staff and service.
Should advise customers to respect the silence of the night

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kath623 Not quite up to normal HI Express properties, bunk beds small
We stayed here because we usually really like the HI Express properties - clean, updated rooms, etc. This one was just 'ok'. The rooms were a little dated and dingy compared to their usual standard. This felt more like a 2 star instead of their usual 2.5 or 3 stars.
We also booked this because we had our 15-year-old girl and 11-year-old boy traveling with us, who didn't want to share a bed, and this had the bunk bed 'room' in the main room. The bunk bed felt really small to my (average sized) 15-year-old, and felt very 'kiddy' with the little fort look. This would be great for little ones, but not for older kids.
Also - what's up with the tiny pillows? Noticed this in the last few hotels we've stayed in (not just HI properties). Don't like that trend...
Breakfast was good, up to their usual standards. Pool was very small (we did not use, so can't comment on cleanliness).
Overall it worked well for a quick one-night stay, but wouldn't stay there again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RichH0330 bait and switch
I was in town for a tournament and all participants were promised a discounted rate for staying at this hotel. Once I showed up for check-in, I was charged full price. I made my reservation on Holiday Inn Express's website. The front desk was unwilling to correct this. Since I travel 5-6 times a year for tournaments, I can assure you I will never stay at another Holiday Inn Express.
Also, the room smelled funny and the carpet was filthy. My white socks were black from walking around on the carpet.

The service at the front desk and through out the hotel was way above average. Everything about the hotel was very nice and especially for an inexpensive cost.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scoober Enjoyable stay overall
Everything was great with the exception of the pool being out of commission. I really enjoy a dip after a long day on the road. A hot tub in the pool area would be a nice addition.

"We had just come from 4 days of camping so maybe that affected our perception but the Holiday Inn was great. We arrived before check in and Danielle was very helpful offering to store our bags and making sightseeing recommendations. The room was very nice as expected and the pool was just the right size. Ashley recommended a wonderful cheap local restaurant. After a good night sleep Mary was wonderful on the morning buffet and kept everyone in good cheer. Overall it was a great stay!"

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HK2Kids Cool Kids' Suite
My kids and I stopped at this hotel for a one night stay during holiday travels. I got the "Kidsuite" without telling them. They were happy to see that they had a fort with bunk-beds and a TV. I had a nice queen size bed and another TV to myself.
The kids loved the pool and I found a nice area on the edge to keep an eye on them. After the pool, we had a nice snack of popcorn that was available in lobby in a cute rolling popcorn machine.
My review is not higher because everything at the hotel was old and dated. It was fairly clean (bedding was nice) but there were cobwebs on the walls and ceiling.
The location was right off 90 which made getting on and off the freeway easy.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area, or as a stopover on a trip to Chicago. The front desk staff are very friendly. The inclusive breakfast was excellent, so much variety. The hotel provided good value for your money. It was also close to other restaurants, shopping and the highway to leaving.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nickmish Uncomfortable beds & Dirty Carpets
My family and I really like the Holiday Inn brand so much that we bought into the Club ownership at the Orange Lake Resort in Orlando Fl. It was because of that experience why we have stayed at several of the the Holiday Inn Express while traveling, but this last experience went south fast. There were a few issues we dealt with during our recent stay at this hotel; from an uncomfortable bed my wife and I slept in, in-which we woke up with aching backs, to spiders and bugs in the room, to the phone not working in the room, to the carpet not being clean, the refrigerator humming through out the night, and to the handle on the tube falling off while giving my daughter a bath. As I mention before, my family and I really like the Holiday Inn brand that the Mr. Wilson created some 20yrs ago because it was hard for him and his family to find a hotel that would be accommodating for his family. It is my hope that my family will not experience anything like this again. By the way, it would be nice if Holiday Inn would treat my wife and I to a full massage and spa!!! I was truly disappointed in this visit and hope that this review helps the company do a full renovation for that location. It is well needed and lack care and attention in maintenance. The handle in the bath tub falling off was a lack of attention. This facility does look that bad on the outside but the rooms need some serious attention, because the location is great and near the highway. My kids feet was dirty from the carpet and they had just bath that night and again in the morning and it was already dirty from the floor. I was compensated for room and was happy with that result but overall will probably never stay at that location again until they have done renovations. It is a ashamed because this is the only Holiday Inn Express within 40 miles.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tude Bed is nice
The bed is comfortable. There are no screens on the windows so we had to kill a few bugs including a spider. The carpet could use an updating. The noise from the highway was loud even after I closed the window and killed the bugs. If you want a good night sleep I don't recommend staying here. The pool was cloudy and very small. Not many attractions besides a bar next door for walking distance.

From the moment we walked in at 10 PM we were welcomed. The gal on staff when we left was even willing to get us something to eat at 5 AM in the morning when we left!!! What a wonderful few hours all the way around after an exhausting day!

We spent a weekend night and explored the area parks and walking trails. The motel was very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and it was very quiet. We enjoyed our stay and will come back again. We also love that we can bring our pets. We highly recommend this motel!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SRW53 My experience overnight.
I arrived later than expected and was quickly assigned my room. The accomadations were perfect for sleeping and I slept well. I was a little disappointed at the breakfast served the next morning. I was eager to start my day of driving another 10 hours until I could reach my next location in Kansas City, KS. I arrived promptly at 6:30 AM and witnessed the breakfast staff of one trying to set up a beautiful food display. Everything was not prepared for the early arrivals and most of the food was not even luke warm. The danish rolls tasted like they were several weeks old and not even heated up properly. The bacon was served very greasy which did not present itself very appealing. I ended up only eating a small portion and stopped later for breakfast that was much more appealing and less greasy. I would stay here again; however, I would think twice before I went to the express breakfast bar. I would suggest that more thought going into a better presentation which appeal to the early risers. Being a Platinum Ambassador does have its perks; however, in this case I felt cheated on the FREE breakfast concept.

The Elev., did not work... Trouble with the TV... The A/C did not work well. The coffee was not good.
We have been Priority Club Members for a number of years, but do not plan on staying at this Holiday Inn Express again. The next time we will go to another motel or go to the next town. We drive by Portage, IN once or sometimes twice each summer and this is a good stopping area for our travel schedule.

The staff were very friendly, and there were plenty of them if we needed anything. I rated the staff and service a 5. The room was clean and comfortable, the only issue was the toilet seat and the bathroom tile were loose. so a 4 for the room. The breakfast was excellent and the lady's working in the breakfast area were magnificent.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by frank49 Worst experience ever!
Upon registration no welcome gift as is the norm for Rewards Club Members. I am a platnium member. Then I am told the elevator does not work and they put me on the third floor. I walk into the room and the carpet has stains. After coming back from dinner I turned on the tv to watch a show I watch every week and the channel does not work. I call the front desk and they tell me to turn off the tv for a couple of minutes and trun it back on. I do this a couple of times with no success. I call the front desk and I am told they have been having this problem all day and there is nothing they can do. Sometimes it works and somtimes not. I ask for another room ans they tell me they have a full house and no rooms are available. Then I go to close the curtains and there are multiple stains on the curtains. Needless to say I will never stay at this location again. I stay at Holiday inns and Holiday Inn Express because of the predictable quality which was totally missing at this location.

The front desk attendant was very welcoming and warm. Tory apologized that the only room available was recently treated duet a previously guest excessive smoking. The room carpet and drapes should be replaced with all new material. The walls should b wash as well. The smell was overbearing. No amount of freshener could take away the awful odor in room 331.
