Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OffensiveFoul Avoid if you are with a sports team
The management & staff of this property do not cater to sports teams well. Because they have had issues with some poorly managed teams, they treat all sports teams poorly. Their practices are borderline creepy. My team was in my suite playing X-Box & the door was cracked using the safety latch. One of the employees stuck his head in the room to ask what they were doing & then thanked them for being well behaved! My wife & teenaged daughter were also in the room. They put a hold on my son's credit card because he arrived with my coach before I could get there even though earlier in the day I faxed a credit card authorization form & confirmed that they received it. Joy of the Game recommends this property but they shouldn't. In all my years of traveling with sports teams, this was the worst we have been treated.

We were awakened many times during the night when the heat would kick in - it was very loud. We'll think about coming back after you've done your upgrades.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 No hot water
Everything was good except the water would not get hot in the morning. It was only warm. I called the front desk and they said they were not aware of any problem. However, my water, which I let run for 10 minutes was still only warm I was on the first floor. Showers that are not hot are not so enjoyable and when I look at the price of the room, everything should be good. No way to start the day.

TV would not pick up HD channels on arrival. Was told someone would come to room...no one did. Next morning, reiterated issue to front desk, who said they would have it fixed...again, no one came.
Had to go 3rd time to desk, maintenance could not resolve and had to switch rooms.
Breakfast - same thing everyday. And only fruit is a bunch of bananas. Poor choice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Timbo53 My favorite hotel group!
On my most recent business trip I stayed in 3 Holiday Inns. I always find the staff to be excellent and the hotels to meet all my needs. I love the fact that you provide a variety of pillows on the beds. The free breakfast is also great value and helps hold down my travel expenses. Keep up the great work!

I ended up staying here a lot longer than expected and the staff was exceptional. I really appreciated the excellent service and bright smiles. They really go out of there way to take care of you. The rooms are clean and nicely equipped and made you feel like a home away from home.

This was a nice HIX. The only issue we had was that the vending machines are made to take only credit cards, and not cash. This was very annoying. Room was comfortable and clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dlord001 Hotel shuttle only takes you 5 miles
The room was well kept and clean. The location is ok, but you need a rental. The hotel shuttle only takes you within 5 miles of the hotel...AND THE HOTEL SHUTTLE DOESN'T PICK UP GUEST FROM THE AIRPORT.....what's the point in having the guest shuttle?????

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve42 Great !!
On a business trip- checked in early(noon)-was pleasantly surprised to receive a suite. After driving from Denver, it was a welcome unsolicited upgrade, which made my stay much more comfortable. It was my second stay at this hotel, and both have been very satisfying. I am always gone before the breakfast, so no opinion there, but the staff has always been great, the rooms clean and comfortable.

Got to my beautiful room late-8:30pm and it was sooooo hot in there---finally cooled off by bedtime.The bed was so comfortable and I slept so well! The breakfast had a welcome assortment! The pool and hat tub area looked clean and welcoming. WILL STAY AGAIN!

We have traveled a lot and this was one of the best stays we've ever had. The bed was so comfy that my husband slept longer than he usually does. The personnel were very well trained. The breakfast was delicious.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ruth77 Disappointed
While the staff was friendly, the room clean and the smell and taste of the cookies was good I was disappointed in the room not having a refrigerator or a microwave. Would never have stepped foot in the hot tub (green). The breakfast was average or slightly below in choices. Scrambled eggs daily? And when we were booking the room the charge was greater than other sites due to it's location. Other Holiday Inn/Express sites in general area offered more for less. Will shop around the next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happyVisitor Wonderful! Wonderful!
I travel for my business and found this hotel to be above par in all respects. I particularly appreciated the towels...thick and soft. The breakfast was wide ranging and, to my delight, every sort of condiment: as in, not only cream cheese for the bagels, but light cream cheese and cream cheese with strawberries. All of the items were well-stocked. The breakfast staff was outstanding. When I was there, there were several other groups, and the coffee was never empty but promptly refilled.. While I did not use the swimming pool, from all observation, the water looked refreshing, clean and the entire area was well-lighted and inviting. I am thrilled to be writing this review. I told the staff when I left that in my opinion they had a superb property.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sam1 Avoid rooms in the centre of the building
I appreciate staff relocating me from one room that has an awful smell to it. However, they relocated me to a room adjacent to the attic dry value room. This device turned on about 11:35 pm and did not shut off for 20 mins (even tho the desk said it would be five). It was a loud noise that cause vibrations in the room that made sleep impossible. I had similar experiences in other rooms nearby on previous visits, but was far enough away to still get some sleep at night. Staff said they are trying to do something about it, but until they do, try to avoid rooms near the centre of the building.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ChuckR Convenient with a helpful staff
The man who checked us in saved us time with recommendations of local restaurants. I worked in the area 13 years ago, but much has changed. My old haunts were gone and this fine fellow found us a fine place for dinner with good wine.
The rest of the staff was very helpful and friendly. This place was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was tasty and abundant. There was a good selection of coffees and teas. Like all Holiday Inn Express facilities, the juices were substandard..
Overall, this sis a fine hotel!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MisterFunnyOne Nice place to stay but...
Had a good experience at this hotel. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is good, the location is good. However, the staff just has this attitude like that don't care if you're there or not. I never did talk to anyone in the hotel that didn't seem to either be irritated that I asked a question or seemed to interrupt them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MBC6 Glad we stayed here.
Our recent stay at this location worked out very well. The room was clean, and the staff was nice--especially the gentleman who manned the front desk in the evenings.
The breakfast choices at all HI Express hotels are the same--not very good. Fake eggs, cholesterol-laden gravy and pastries really doesn't do it for me, but I knew that in advance and we chose to eat elsewhere.
Overall, everything was fine and I would recommend this location. Easy on and off the interstate.

I do a fair amount of traveling and I must say that the Riverwoods
Holiday Inn Express is one of my favorie places to stay. The entire staff has been friendly, courteous, and eager to help with anything from local restaurants, directions, and even a tube of toothpaste should you run out. The rooms are comfortable, the beds are great and overall one of the nicest places I've stayed.
