Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Eddie10754 Over charged and poor breakfast selection
The hotel did not honor the quote I received by making my reservation online. They said they were an independently owned facility and did not go by online quotes. The room was nice but the a/c unit was very noisey. during the night when it cycled it woke us up with the noise it made, The breakfast was mediocre. No orange juice; the machine was broke. No bananas or apples; only fresh fruit was valencia oranges. Eggs and sausage and sausage gravy were not hot; more like room temp. Definately not the best Holiday Inn Express I have stayed at. When in Topeka, KS I would look around for another place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mudder13 Gracious front desk and management
This hotel was gracious enough to let us have a very late checkout after completing a mud run event! We needed a place to shower and were much later than expected. They were very understanding and made us feel welcome.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarilynND Awesome Stay in Topeka!
There are so many wonderful things to say about this hotel, that I do not know where to start! It is super clean with updated and modern decor and very comfy beds and pillows! The staff was unbelievably accommodating and friendly during our 2-night stay. The minute we walked in the door they were attentive at all times. I highly recommend the Holiday Inn Express in Topeka. Will absolutely stay there again!

We have stayed at Holiday Inn Express hotels in 14 different cities. While they are all very nice, this is possibly the nicest one we've stayed in. (HINT: upgrading to an "Executive Suite" is well worth it!)
We will certainly recommend it!!

We are never disappointed with Holiday Inn Express. We had a most comfortable room and the breakfast choices were very good. Great value.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mmot Average - Expected Better
This is a very average motel, but we choose HIE consistently because we prefer "above average". Nothing was horrible -- well except maybe the exterior security door that wouldn't close and latch without a nudge. Or, maybe the room-to-room sound transmission issues that involved us in our neighbors' middle of the night conversation. One wonders if this was one of the rare HIE conversions from a building built for another, lesser brand. One also wonders how the HIE Brand Manager sees a unit like this fitting into its image and product consistency when compared with some of the excellent facilities we've stayed in over the past five years. Hard to figure.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1234Dick Personal Attention by manager
We stayed the night of 19 Aug because of medical appointment early on 20 Aug. We did not know how long I would be in the hospital. The manager on duty the afternoon of 19 Aug suggested we extend our reservation un till 21 Aug, but offered a late check out on 20 Aug if this suited us. His consideration for my wife's comfort and removing the anxiety of re-checking if required was above and beyond what we expected. He made my pending procedure easier knowing my wife would have a place to stay a second night if required. When we return to Topeka for a hospital appointment, we will stay at the Holliday Inn on Wannamaker. Please seek him out and thank him for us. We did not do so at 6 p.m. on 20 Aug.

Room was right off the expressway on one side and the kitchen area on the other, so it was noisy. Must have been a smoking room at one time, because the room smelled like nicotine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bubbanut Great service and comfortable room
Stayed on 8-2-13 to8-4-13. Staff was excellant and room was clean,shower good(picky about water pressure) and bed comfortable. 2 firm and 2 soft pillows per bed, nice touch.Good breakfast with decent but not elaborate selection(hot pancakes,eggs,bacon,biscuits,cinnamon rolls) plus cold food. I take that back, that is pretty good for free breakfast. Coffee 24/7. Exercise equipment good(1 stationary bike,2 treadmills and exercise machine), exercise machine missing a part. Small pool as usual,did not use. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by holmesracing1980 the stay was bad.
I stay in a lot of holiday inn hotels this one stay was the worst stay ever. The road noise was bad in my room all night. we went to get on the elevator and the cleaning people jump in front of us and filled the elevator with cleaning carts when we were waiting for a while in all my experiences you let the guest go first, we were there before they was waiting. Breakfast was not very much to choose from. Overall bad place to stay. There was hair all in bathroom too.

We had two rooms for 3 nights. Nice rooms that were quiet, adequate breakfast, very clean, helpful staff. Close to interstate 70. I'm a hard person to please.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maxie19 Great Place!
This is the best property in Topeka, KS. We travel to this area many times each year to visit family. We have stayed at a different place every time we go. When I get home, I have marked off every hotel until now. Finally, we have found a friendly, clean, & accommodating place to stay. I don't need my mark-off list anymore. We know where to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wanderer2 Best room of entire trip
This was not your typical Holiday Inn room! It was a great room with lots of space and a great work and entertainment center. We were very impressed. The location is by the interstate (easy to find and get to), but no noise. Lots of restaurants nearby. For weary travelers, it was terrific!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Feathers1 Overall a nice comfortable room.
We thought we were making the reservation directly with the hotel until we had a change in plans and tried to cancel the reservation. The "CHOOSE A ROOM" advised us there would be a $25..00 cancellation charge. So we decided to let Holiday Inn Express make our plans and decided to stay rather than pay this ridiculous fee. The room charge was greater than what the hotel itself quoted us after we learned of this scenario.
Would be nice if you reinstated the evening cookies. That was always a treat.
Not sure we will ever use Holiday Inn Express after this episode.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MudcatStan Stay here if you get a chance!
Our final night out on a nine night trip was at the Topeka Holiday Inn Express. It was easily the best lodging experience of our trip. The rooms are spacious, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast area is less crowded than any other we visited. In addition, the breakfast staff did a great job keeping tables clean. All around positive experience!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AlfredC This hotel has problems, stay away
Multiple problems on arrival. Wireless did not work. Staff could not find a cable for me. Staff reluctant to help. No followup. Young ladies on reception although very nice personally, not experienced to handle issues, and not good at handling issues. No request for feedback on this one, I guess I know why.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hotelcommission Needs some maintenance
The treadmills and elliptical need to be replaced. One treadmill slips while running and the other one doesn't measure the right speed. Also, the hot tub does not work. The button has been broken for about 2 years. It appears that a $10 replacement switch would take care of the issue, but it remains an issue. You spent so much money on upgrading rooms, why not spend a little bit of money taking care of the other pieces you offer?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Notdebbie Nonsmoking - NOT
I called the front desk after spending a couple hours in the room and told the person that the room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. She gave me an ozone machine and said it would take care of it if I ran it for a bit. She called the room an hour later and asked if it worked. When I told her it didn't do anything to remove the smell, she asked me to bring it back to the front desk. She did not offer to move me to another room. I spent a sleepless night and left the next day with a raging headache. I felt like I had spent the night in a stale ashtray! When I mentioned it at the desk the next morning, I was told that they had changed all the furnishings when converting to nonsmoking a few weeks ago so somebody must have smoked in the room since then. She reduced my bill but that didn't get the night's sleep back for me or get rid of my headache. Someone would have had to spend prolonged days in there chain-smoking to make it smell so strongly of cigarette smoke. Even the pillows, mattress smelled. Ugh!

Even though this was a rewards night stay we were treated like we booked the most expensive room. Since we were in for a long drive the next day, we were in the right place to get onto I-70 and get going early the next morning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nuisance01 WONDERFUL experience here!
Wasn't sure what to expect at this hotel, as I hadn't stayed in this part of town before. But this place knocked my socks off! Incredibly clean property. Close to I-70 and many good dining places. The staff was friendly and helpful. But most importantly, the entire building is either brand new, or completely renovated. I can't tell which; it looks brand new!! The design of the rooms is wonderful too. New, stylish, trendy fixtures in all areas of the room and the bathroom. Not the 'old Holiday Inn' style. This place looks extremely modern. I will stay there again next time I'm in Topeka. Really, really impressed with this place.
Oh, and unlike other hotels, this one had the thermostat set at a comfortable temp in the low 70's when we walked in. Not the warm, stale, stuffy air that you sometimes get hit in the face with when you enter a hotel room. Nice touch.

My experience this time was much better. My room was clean, the bathroom was very clean. I liked the scent of the provided bath products also.
Minor complaint, the eggs were not nearly as good this time.

Upon arrival, we asked for a quiet room and were upgraded to a suite by a very friendly front desk staff. Room was clean, as was the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and property feels new. A very refreshing stay between two 600 mile drive days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BleugrassBoy Friendly staff, clean newly-remodeled hotel - recommended
We were traveling through this area on a combined business/pleasure trip. Being a Priority Club member I was looking specifically for a Holiday Inn Express in the area. There were a couple to choose from and I selected this one based on it's proximity to my route.
We arrived in the evening and were greeted warmly by Jeff who was expecting us. He had our rooms set aside ready to go and we were checked in within just a couple of minutes. After unloading our luggage we were thinking about dinner. I went downstairs to the lobby was able to talk to Jeff some more. He asked a few questions about our tastes and preferences. I was hoping to find a nice LOCAL place to eat (not a chain, not fast food) and he came up with a couple of suggestions. We tried one and were really happy.
The property was recently remodeled and it was very clean and modern. The kids got to swim in the pool - also clean and kept up.
The breakfast the next morning was exactly what we've come to expect from the HIE hotels - it's not exactly fine cuisine but for the price (built in to your room rate) you can't beat it for variety or convenience - especially when traveling with kids!
We got a chance to visit with a few other staff members (housekeeping, breakfast area) and they were all very nice, friendly and professional folks.
There was a shift change at the front desk when we left but that was also easy.
If I'm in the area again I will definitely make it a point to stay at this HIE.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great service, awesome room
We had stayed in a different holiday inn express on our way west and had planned to return to the same one on our way home, but had such an awful experience that we decided to find a different one (this one). We are so thankful we did!! The hotel smells new, the staff was super friendly and helpful. It's right off the highway. The room was very, very nice. And there was a good breakfast.
