The employees of the St Charles Holiday Inn on Elm Street make the extra effort of insuring I feel welcome during my stay. I appreciate the personal touch provided during my visit.
Thank you to the Holiday Inn Staff on Elm Street!

This was a nice hotel, newer one. My family and I came for a short last minute get away, my husband checked in before I did but due to him accidently leaving his wallet at home they would not let him check in without a confirmation number even though I told them I had the information for my priority club and I was told that didnt matter, the clerk finally called his boss and finally let him check in before I got there. Then after I arrived I had to ask for my priority club welcome "bag" which consisted of a rice Krispy treat. I am not one that usually makes a big deal of things but I felt they didn't treat their club members very well. Felt very uncomfortable when I parked on the closest side to the end door and a gentleman was there smoking weed. One of the teen children from a sporting team walked by my family and snapped a picture of us, was very uncomfortable here.

We stay at Holiday Inn Express whenever we travel (about 10 nights a year). This property disappointed us. It was more expensive and had less amenities. There was no "Happy Hour" or even warm cookies and the pool had salt water. The beds were OK, but I hope I don't have to stop in St. Charles again.

I stay at this hotel just about every week while working in St. Charles. They are consistently excellent in all categories. The staff are extremely courteous, and rooms are clean. I only mark the breakfast as good because once you've had Holiday Inn Express breakfasts as much as I have, it gets old, no matter which HI Express you stay at. I do wish they offered a health breakfast shake alternative, like Muscle Milk, but I realize that is asking a lot.

I stay at this hotel frequently since it's close to a business that I visit several times each year. The hotel is only a couple of years old, but it does not appear to be maintained very well. During this stay I noticed that the wallpaper is peeling off the wall signifficantly in the bathroom. The bathroom has poor lighting, which makes it hard for shaving. There's a railroad track located behind hotel, but I always stay in a room on the front of the hotel and rarely hear a train. The staff does not go out of their way to act friendly or to make you feel like a valued guest.
If it were not for this hotel being located close to the company that I visit, I would consider staying at another hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Greg45 No Hot Water
Checked in Friday night good experience. Went to bed got up next morning went to take a shower could not get any HOT water in shower There was HOT water in sink but not in shower. Had to leave early so did not have timew to mess around. Let person on duty at the desk know I did not have hot water in the shower and he said that he thought they had that fixed so it was a problem before that had not been fixed. He said there wazs nothing he could do for me that I would have to call someone on monday morning. Not satisfied at all with the service at this hotel believe they should have comped my stay or at least part of it without having to call someone two days later. Lost the number so wont ever stay at this hotel again.

This hotel is a bit out of the way, but easy access to I 29 makes it worth it.
We found it difficult to find a place to have an adult beverage and a meal without being inundated by cigarette smoke in the surrounding businesses.
The room itself was comfortable, but could use a good vaccuming, ie, move the furniture.
We appreciate it being a no pet facility.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jake613 Weird Location fair hotel
This hotel is poorly located if you are engaging in local activities.
In an industrial area that is dark and poorly marked and well away from local restuarants and atractions.
The rooms are standard HE fair and below average cleanliness.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lakesidesail Lovely hotel but....
The hotel was very nice. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was very good. The rooms were decorated well and the bed was very comfortable.
I have two problems with the place.
1. The area surrounding the hotel had very high weeds. It made it hard to tell where the entrance was or see the driveway sign. It was in an industrial area so I'm assuming Holiday Inn is not responsible for the surrounding area maintenence. The actual grassy area of the hotel was well kept but I think they should either contact the city about mowing the surrounding area or do it themselves for asthetics. We missed the driveway and sign the first time we went down the frontage road due to the high weeds etc. I was hesitant about going on in to the hotel because I was afraid the inside was taken care of in the same way-just gives a bad impression and that's too bad because the hotel was very nice.
2. What is with some of the Holiday Inn shower heads these days??? Ridiculous to have a shower head that is set 8' above the tub. I had to jump to even reach it to face it down and I'm 5'7". It was so high that there wasn't enough pressure to rinse my hair.

I've been a frequent visitor for over a year. Like with anything, if you do something enough, you may eventually run into a challenge or two.
I would rate my most recent stay as "average." Normally I would rate my experience in the good to excellent range.
This stay, I was provided a room on the third floor. Overall, I would rate the room as "adequate' with the exception of the bathroom where the overhead light contained several dead insects.
My only question is - it was a third floor room. How did all of those bugs get up there - and end up in the light fixture?
