Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by knitpicker41 Quiet and comfortable stay
If you want a quiet, comfortable experience, this destination should be considered. We had stayed at this motel three years ago, and based on that experience, decided to make reservations at the same motel again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jmeisbre Better than it's local competitors
While this hotel is better than it's competitors in the immediate area by a long shot, I still have a hard time considering it a good value. A quick drive up to Kalamazoo will at times save you up to a 1/4 of the cost per night. I had the need to stay in town during my last visit, so I didn't take that route. As for the room, it smelled like moth balls, which wasn't horrible, but I didn't exactly find it pleasant either. The staff was very courteous and helpful, and I found that they made my stay more pleasant than expected. The building is showing some age though as the exterior has obvious patterns of weathering and the bathrooms were starting to show signs of over use as well. Overall, this hotel is still leaps and bounds better than anything else in the immediate area, but that's mainly because the competition is just horrid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jenney12 Poor value, but no other choices
This Holiday Inn Express is an exceedingly average Holiday Inn Express. There is nothing exceptionally wrong with this hotel, except for the nightly price. While this is the nicest hotel in Three Rivers, MI, compared to other Holiday Inn Expresses it is only average. In comparing this hotel to other Holiday Inn Expresses in more urban settings, it isn't as updated and it is more expensive (for comparison I stayed in Cleveland the following night and Holiday Inn Expresses near the airport were less expensive than this one).
Regarding the overall condition of the hotel - it is well maintained. I've stayed in this hotel previously and haven't had issues with an overly soft mattress, but this stay I was in a room with a mattress too soft for me to sleep comfortably.
The hotel staff is friendly and accommodating (the night I stayed they were full and no other rooms were available for me to switch to).
The breakfast does offer many choices, but they are budget choices and average or below average what the more updated Holiday Inn Expresses offer. They do offer hot breakfast items as well as a reasonable choice of yogurts, breads, and pastries.
