Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MJC404 Lots of noise
We stayed at this hotel because it is about midway between Boston and Niagara. We were initially given room 225 but were continually disturbed by very loud noises from the plumbing and/or air conditioning. It sounded as if everybody in the hotel was using the bathroom at the same time. After about an hour of this, we decided that we couldn't stand it any longer, and that it would definitely dsiturb our sleep. We went to reception where the girl, without any arguement, gave us a different room. This was 301 and it was certainly much quieter. At least it was until 6.30 the following morning when the phone rang and the receptionist told us that somebody had complained about our alarm going off for over an hour. This was news to us because until that moment, we had been fast asleep and there was certainly no alarm going off in our room. A few minutes later we heard somebody banging loudly at a door along the corridor, presumably the room of the culprit. It took quite a lot of banging to get the occupant to respond so there was a lot disturbance which prevented us from going back to sleep. A question - why didn't the receptionist check which room was causing the problem before incorrectly waking us?
As we checked-out, the receptionist asked whether everything had been ok for our stay. We told her of all the disturbances and she was quite concerned, asking what she could do about it. Clearly, by that time there was absolutely nothing that she could do. Apart from the above, the bedroom in which we slept was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was perfectly satisfactory.

Friendly front desk staff, clean and new facility. Room was typical of a chain hotel. It has all the things I look for in a hotel--Cleanliess, free WiFi and free breakfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lobsterroll Worst breakfast at a Holiday Inn Express
The room was fine. Clean. What I expect from a Holiday Inn Express. Most of the staff were rather indifferent. Polite because they're supposed to be but otherwise could care less that we were there. Mark was trying to be nice when he wasn't complaining about some previous nights guests (some local sporting event#. Absolutely NO benefit of being a priority club member. Paperwork was not ready when we got there. No recognition whatsoever for being a club member. Hot breakfast was the worst we've ever had at a Holiday Inn Express #second worst of any hotel we've ever stayed in#. The breakfast is one of the reasons we look for HIX when we're on a road trip. The sausage and omelets were dried out and burnt #we overheard an employee saying these were leftovers put out to get rid of them#. The replacement sausages that were brought out when I mentioned that they were bad, were equally burnt #no more omelets#. The cinnamon rolls also tasted day-old. I was told they were exactly the way they're supposed to be, but I've had enough of them to know what they taste like when they're hot and fresh #and they're delicious#. They didn't bother getting the pancake machine going #unless someone asked# because they said the machine leaked. Coffee was not ready #and no, we didn't come down early).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by vttt poor sound barrier
hotel was but sound barriers were poor - could hear women above walking in heals and the next morning what we thought was the shower next door turned out to be the water running from the laundry room beneath - so I was woken at 5 am
if you dont want to identify your clients you can identify thru email?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Clean, Great service & Indoor Pool!!!
This hotel has a business aire with a Family feel_in a good way.
I stayed overnight with my daughters (all under 10) and theyve raved to everyone we know about it. From cookies at the front desk, to an indoor pool (when all utica public pools are closed) to an vast array for breakfast.
Its CLEAN, the staff is FANTASTIC (especially Ana), service always came with a smile. The business room was functioning and the fitness room well equiped.
Across the street from Delmonicos Steakhouse and a 5 min. Drive to the nearest mall.
RECOMMEND!!!!!!! (as long as they always have rooms available for us)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Keep It Up!
I was happily impressed with this hotel. Multiple staff members indicated they enjoyed working there and felt apprciated by the hotel manager, which showed up in the customer experience. I hope the manager stays on with this hotel for as long as possible. Utica could use more hotels like this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Very nice staff
Ana and mark and everyone else were very good . I must say the hotel was very clean and nice. However the pool was very cold and the hotel needed band aids. Other wise it was excellent. I would love to see a bar put in .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sassafras1 Perfect stay
Everything was absolutely great on our last visit to the Holiday Inn.
The bed was comfortable, there was enough pillows (we always need extra), the room was spotless.
Breakfast was very good with a selection that anyone would have
been happy with.
The staff was attentive.
Couldn't ask for more.

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in Utica. This was the final stop of a four-stop road trip, and this Holiday Inn Express was so much nicer than the other three hotels where we stayed. Next time we travel through NY, we'll stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Utica again.

Holiday Inn Express is Utica's hidden hotel gem. It is a new hotel that is very comfortable. It provides excellent value for money. Check out the automatic pancake machine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SUGAR107 POOR MAID SERVICE
Everything about this hotel is great except for the maid service. They need to pay attention to detail and especially how to make a bed. Just pulling up the sheets is not acceptable. We were there 7 nights and had to ask to have the sheets changed. Left coffee one day. No kleenex. One bar of soap. No note pads/pens left. Fridge was too cold and all of my items froze. In the bathroom where there is a picture should be replaced with towel bar. Left soiled towels in shower and left cleaning rags on dresser. These are all small issues but need to be attended to and improved on. This is not what I have come to expect from Holiday Inn Express. Certainly not up to their standards.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SUGAR107 LOVELY NEW PROPERTY
I would have given this property a five star rating if it were not for the lack of attention to minor details by the housekeepers. The first night we were there the fridge was too cold and everything in the fridge froze including my coffee cream. We were there for 7 nights and after the third night I had to ask to have the bedding changed. Bed was never properly made. Sheets were pulled up and pillows just thrown on the bed. Crumbs were still in the bed from the night before. Coffee was left only one time. No plastic bag in ice bucket. No note pads/pens left. No kleenex left. In the bathroom there should be a towel bar inplace of the picture. Would like to see a wall mounted two sided mirror in the bathroom. Soiled towels were left in the shower one day and cleaning rags left on the dresser same day. Bathroom was NOT cleaned on a daily basis. Other than these minor issues the room was very comfortable. Didn't see the need for two large screen tvs side by side in the same room. May be one of the reasons for the rate increases. Breakfast bar was excellent with fresh apples and bananas. Women who worked in there were so nice. All The staff was excellent and very pleasant. Would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pompoms When In Utica You Must Stay At Holiday Inn Exp
Wow. What a great Express and I can honestly say this is the cleanest nicest Holiday Inn Ex[ress I have been in. Of course, new is always best, but the staff made it outstanding. This is a lovely, comfortable place to stay when in Utica. We were there for two days. When it came to breakfast the choices each day were different as far as the hot choices. There is FRESH fruit on the bar and in the hallway when you arrive. Cookies also were a nice touch..

Hotel is brand new and obviously very clean. Water running in pipes is louder than I have experienced at other IHG hotels.
Alarm system worked at 6:30AM but there was no announcement of all clear or any practical reason for the alarm.

We loved this hotel - we were very pleasantly surprised as to how very together this hotel is - new and a great location. We will definitely stay here again. The room was spacious and the amenities were great. The breakfast had many choices. Cookies at check in were a nice touch. We had to go to New Hartford, but everything is in easy drive which was not a problem. For us this was a great find.
