Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrTraveler5 Great place to stay
We had a great experience at this Holiday Inn Express. The room had an updated feel, the bed was comfortable, the pool was great, and complimentary breakfast was pretty good. Overall, it made for a pleasant and relaxing stay.

Excellent customer service when disappointed about a/c noise in room. The staff were kind, friendly and patient at the front desk.
Room was clean, bathroom was clean, and breakfast had a good variety.
Liked the hot coffee and water available 24/7.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pinktink New remodel but old still shows
The wall area in our bathroom had new wallpaper but you could see it was sinking in by the tub, so it wasn't remodeled well enough to hide the flaws.Avoid going here when a baseball team is here. They pranked our doors until 11 pm while the chaperones sat drinking and chatting. Then there was kids in the pool area without adults ALL under age 14. The beds were HARD as a rock an no comforters just thin blankets. The towels were a plenty and the breakfast was awesome, minus the fact that there was one person to take care of and clean up after the MESSY baseball families and they were messy, guess they don't know how to put away their trash! The desk staff was great, front desk was empty a lot. Very quiet area considering it was next to freeway wouldn't have know it was there. Then when we checked it they assigned us to the wrong room due to my disabilities need. Had to get it changed when I checked in. The lack of handicap parking made it difficult since there were only like 4 by the door and they were all gone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by techiewench Clean, well managed hotel with awesome staff
Everything about my stay here was amazing.
The front desk is professional but caring, the breakfast is very well put together and the breakfast attendant is friendly and knowledgeable. The housekeeping staff is amazing and responded promptly to my request for extra conditioner.
The guests rooms are modern and spotlessly clean, the pool is clear and the chemicals are so in balance they are barely noticeable (just like they should be).
Hats off to both the staff and the manager, you care and it shows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gingy Excellent location and service
Visiting the town for a wedding, I found this place an excellent place to stay. I looked forward to breakfast and the gym before visiting family. My late evening/early morning arrivals were greeted by kindness and a sense of security. The closeness to shopping was perfect!! Will stay here again when I visit in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Atl_Rick Great Staff
I forgot the lady's name who helped me when I first came in. I think it may have been Carmela, but she was so pleasant. She really made me feel welcome. She is simply wonderful. Then the staff called the room to make sure everything was ok, great touch. I talked to one of the ladies that clean the rooms and she was very nice and pleasant also and said that 'if the staff is happy then the guest will be happy'. I travel for a living and I must say Holiday Inn Grand Rapids is one of the best I have experienced.
Thank you very much...

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kayzee6 It is all in Holiday Inn's "lingo" and being a member of their "club."
Beautiful hotel, but reservation was totally mishandled and misleading as far as what type of room I requested and was promised. Spent over 20 minutes on the 800 reservation line while they contacted hotel direct assuring that I could get a handicapped room for my elderly parents close to an additional room for my immediately family. (There were 6 of us total.) When checking in (very late in the evening) once again asked if the room was a handicapped room and was assured it was. Arrived at room (3rd floor) and the ONLY handicapped prevision was ONE hand bar to hold onto when stepping over the edge of the tub to get in. Both rooms were IDENTICAL! There was absolutely nothing in the promised "handicapped" room that made it more accessible for my parents. It was late and we were all exhausted so we just lived with it but asked at the front desk the next morning why the rooms were the same, when I was told that I needed to ask for a "roll in" handicapped room if I wanted one that was more accessible. Not sure how Holiday Inn expects me to know their "lingo" for getting what I needed. Also, asked for a couple of extra hours with a late check out and was told no because I was not a member of their "club." I used to travel internationally over 250K miles a year for my job, and still know many people that do, and I can promise you that if I were still traveling frequently, I would NOT stay at Holiday Inn - nor would I recommend them. The most beautiful hotel in the world does not make up for the fact that my elderly parents and I struggled to get them bathed and settled for the night after I specifically asked for the accommodations that I knew we needed - and was lead to believe that was what I was getting - when it fact it was not....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jerry42 Comfortable bed and the staff was very good.
We were only here for one night as a stop off before traveling to Muskegon to ride the Lake Express the next morning. This Hotel is a little off of the main highway but was very easy to get to. Clean comfortable rooms. Lobby and other common areas were neat and clean also. Did not partake in the breakfast but it appeared to be the same as most Hotel breakfast, not all that great but OK.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kalinda Perfect for our 12 hour stay!
I knew from recent experience with our two-night stay at a Holiday Inn Express in a different state that I would seek out this hotel for our next trip. I appreciated the ease of booking, consistency of amenities, and filling breakfast for our family's early morning check out.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mike262 Leaky Air Conditioner
Upon arrival the front desk did not let us know that the air conditioning unit was leaking water all over the floor. After a few wet socks and and patting the floor around the unit which extended out by the desk area, I went down to the front desk who informed me that they were aware of the issue, but did not seem to think that we needed to know about it upon check in. They simply stated that they would look at it the next day after we were gone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superchop728 Nice Hotel Value
This is a great place to stay if you want to close to Grand rapids. I attended a conference here and was 5-10 drive. Traffic isn't an issue and there are plenty of palces to eat and things to do around the hotel if you don't want to go into town.
The breakfast was ready to go @ 6:00 so no worries there and the item available changed a little each day. Overall I had a good experience and would go there again.

EVERYTHING WAS GREAT EXCEPT FOR THE FOLLOWING:
1) THE COMPUTER SYSTEM WAS DOWN SO WE WEREN'T RECOGNIZED AS A PRIORITY CLUB MEMBER AND GOT NO WATER OR PAPER; AND
2) THE PERSON MANAGING THE DINING ROOM WAS EXTREMELY LOAD AND ANNOYING WHILE ALLOWING CERTAIN FOOIDS TO RUN OUT. WE WOULD NOT EAT THERE AGAIN. OH, I MOTIONED TO THE DINING ROOM PERSON TO PLEASE TONE IT DOWN AND WHILE I'M SURE SHE SAW ME, SHE LIKEWISE IGNORED ME.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vid906 excellent & much appreciated refurbished complex
Just the drive into the lot and seeing the exterior of the building was inviting enough, but to enter the lobby and hear hello Mr. K----- I knew I was at my home away from home, and then to see the decor was much more then I expected. The room with it,s new decor and furniture is very inviting I like the modern touch, the colors are very relaxing. I had a very relaxing and peaceful night sleep. When I entered the dining area I was not only greeted with a very friendly hello Mr. K----- how was your night but if you need any help please let us know. The decor in the dinning area is very comfortable, the food bar was laid out very professionally and makes it easy to find your food and get to your comfortable chairs and table. I can't say or give enough praise and credit to a professional staff that is and as long as I have been staying at this Holiday Inn Express treated me on my business trips. To the Management and staff you have much to be proud of and to those that did the remodeling great job hope you all get an award for your work. Thanks; Paul K
P.S I used to take pictures for the Grand Rapids Builders Association annual awards banquet. You need to enter your building!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bigmum Staffing of breakfast food area.
With a full parking lot, I assume that you were at full room occupancy. Sat March 15, 2014 to Sunday March 16, 2014.
By electing to have only one employee to service the food was not only unfair to the employee, it appeared to make what should have been a pleasant experience mor many of your guests. I felt bad for your only employee serving the food area as it just too much to do for one person. I didn't complain, but I coud see that other guests were not so compassionate and were irritated.
Just thought you should know this information.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KZO-Steve 3 awesome 1 week stays. 5 stars.
I have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express several times over the last couple of months for business. Each stay has been for a one week period of time and each stay has been exceptional. Yes, there has been some construction due to improvements and updates but that's actually a good thing. And, as far as I could tell as of my Feb 2014 stay, the construction is complete. The rooms are clean, stylish, comfortable, roomy, and quiet. Not to take anything away from the hotel itself, but I'd have to say that the best thing about this hotel is the staff. They are ALWAYS courteous, helpful, and friendly. I have always been greeted with a warm smile. I highly recommend this hotel and look forward to my next stay. Thank you to all of the staff and to Holiday Inn Express for making my time away from home as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Keep up the good work!
