The hotel is conveniently located near accessible interstates and is clean/comfortable. The staff has always been friendly and accommodating. The fitness area is minimal but the hotel does offer the use of a local fitness facility that is very nice. The breakfast options could use some attention; eggs/ omelettes were dried out and cold, the yogurt is often gone for days, the juice machine is very unpredictable and fruit selection is very hit and miss.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jacki43 Comfortable bed and nice decor.
Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Would have liked 2 garbage cans and 2 kleenex boxes. Only 1 in the bathroom and would like one in the main room. But the microwave and refrigerator is a great addition to customer need. Comfortable temperature and quiet. Thank you

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Orion72 Fantastic stay except for.......
Hotel was great. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Room was clean and quiet. I even had a west pointing window to see a fantastic sunset. the one problem I had (and it's a big one) is the wifi was VERY slow and at times disappeared. Couldn't use my lap top for work or my tablet to Skype with my family while I was on the road. Maybe it was because I was on the top floor, but whatever the reason I wouldn't stay there again just because of the wifi. However if you don't care about that. Fantastic stay.

Fresh fruit looked over ripe and not very inviting; OJ seemed a bit watered down; eggs were cold. Rooms and Hotel, clean and comfortable. Easy access from highway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OzarkGuru Great Stop Especially if Visiting Rockford
Easy access. Much preferred staying in Rochelle, IL to staying in Rockford, IL. A smaller designed Holiday Inn Express - smaller elevators, etc.) but rooms were up to the same standard.
Noticed the front desk people must have been very busy as everyone had to ring for help.
No amenities for Priority members. Internet functioned with frequent delays but the hotel was sold out because of a regional soccer tournament.
It is on our list to visit again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DonaldDuck Stinky bathroom
My family and I stayed here for one night a few weeks ago. As usual, Holiday Inn Express provided a clean, comfortable room and a decent breakfast at a reasonable price. We didn't have a working fan in our bathroom, however. I mentioned this to the front desk upon checkout, and the lady said that you have to turn on the heat lamp in the bathroom in order to get the fan to come on. Really? That is the most bizarre set up I have ever run into. She said that all of the rooms in this hotel are set up that way. Whoever came up with this brilliant idea obviously doesn't have to contend with midwest Summer days with all of the high humidity. Why you would want to make a room even hotter just to get the moisture and other stuff out is beyond me. Other than that, good stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JNChicago Outside laundry service
This was the worst I have ever received in my 25 years of travel. The shirt I had sent out look like it was removed from a dryer and hung on hanger. I was embarrassed to wear that day for work. Outside of that the hotel staff and accommodation were great. I realize the hotel uses an outside service and I hope never use the 3rd party responsible for the laundry service.

Bed was comfortable but air condition was not working correctly. We checked in around 10 and turned on the air. We took the kids for a quick swim and put them to bed around 11. The room was never got to a comfortable temp for sleeping.
Overall, I'm very happy with our Holiday Inn experiences, but two out of three stays on our last road trip had minor problems. I recommend this hotel and would stay here again. Staff was great breakfast was good room was quiet.

A really nice stopover enroute to Minneapolis-St.Paul -- away from the hustle of larger cities, yet very near the interstate. Corey was especially helpful with a late night check-in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bucky436 Visiting Dad
We made another trip back from Minnesota to visit my father in a nursing home.
Room was really nice, not as fancy as the one we had used in May but still nice.
Quiet room, didn't hear anything from hallway or swimming pool.
Breakfast did leave a need for improvement. We arrived about 8AM and the dish for biscuit gravy was empty. Hostess was busy cleaning tables and evidently was working alone. We had juice and a roll, waited 20 minutes and still no gravy. She did notice pan was empty and I assume started another hating but never brought it back out. There was probably @ 10 people standing waiting.
We left and went down town Rochelle and ate.

This is our second year staying at the hotel. The hotel staff is friendly, accommodating, and service is great. Each year we get the handicap room, which fits our needs. All your staff is friendly and approachable, but one in particular was extremely helpful and that is Cory!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PB182 Best place in Rochelle
I don't always go to breakfast during my stay but this time I went down and found no muffins, no yogurt, and no eggs. It was a little disappointing. I'm not sure if there was a "shortage". There are two different individuals that work the breakfast area and one is very hard working.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BaseballFamily great place to stay in Rochelle
My sons were in a baseball tournament and several of us stayed at the Holiday Inn. We were even able to check in early. The large outside patio was a great gathering space for the adults and the common area with the large TV was perfect for the boys. The boys also enjoyed the pool. Our room was clean and the staff was great. I ended up needing a pin and sure enough they had a travel sewing kit. For breakfast there were a lot of options and the staff made sure there weren't any empty containers, including coffee. There are several other hotels in Rochelle and I hadn't stayed at any of them. I chose this hotel based on the reviews and am very happy I did.

Great Place to stay, I have stayed here about 2.5 months worth of time over the last 4-5 months. Great place, only grip is that the WiFi signal is weak throughout the hotel and the internet is somewhat slow.
