Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rm01wurs Great Stay During The State Fair
We stayed here on our way to a wedding and to go to the State Fair. The shuttle to the fair ran about every 20min and dropped you off right at the gate. Not having to worry about parking at the fair and making the journey to the front gate was great. Staff was kind and courteous at check-in and check out. It was nice to have a warm breakfast provided to us before we headed out on the road again. Nothing says road trip like pancakes!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Donna Marie Holiday Inn Express Fairgrounds a great place to stay!
The Holiday Inn Express Fairgrounds was a very nice, quiet hotel. Matthew greeted us at the front desk and was very friendly and helpful. He went out of his way to make our stay nice. The room was a nice size, clean and comfortable. There is a pool, hot tub and fitness center...all very nice and clean. My kids especially liked the cookies before bed and very nice treat! Over all it was a very nice place to stay, I would stay there again and I would recommend it.
The only thing that my family disliked was the toilet...it was very low and we are very tall people. It would be difficult for someone handicap to use such a low toilet.
*I suggest higher toilets or a handrail to help guests get up.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rai4891 Don't count on the shuttle service
We booked this hotel based on the fact that it was close to the fairgrounds and there was a shuttle service. What a joke that was! The first day that we were there, we got the shuttle with no problems to go to the fairgrounds and see a concert. After the concert, we made sure to be back at the meeting point by 11:30 because we were told that would be the last shuttle. There were so many people waiting that it would have been at least 2 more rides before we could get on. We ended up taking a taxi instead and paying $25.
The next day, we had no issues getting there. It was the getting back that we had the issue with. We waited for 20 minutes before calling about the shuttle and were told that it would not be there for 30 minutes because they were waiting for a guest (we were told that it runs every 20 minutes). By the time that we saw the shuttle, we had been waiting for 1 hour. She dropped people off on the other side of the road and took off on us. We called back to the hotel and they sent her back to us after another 10 minutes of waiting and then she tried to tell us that we had to go to the airport with her. We refused and demanded that she take us back to the hotel and it was only then that we were taken back.
My suggestion would be to add additional shuttle drivers on these busy days. One driver is not enough for the amount of people that were staying at the hotel and this experience ruined every other good thing that I could say about my stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PasPaul Nice room, slightly pricy
Room was clean, airy, comfortable. Nice furnishings and extras. Actually slept through the night - something I don't always manage on hotel beds! Room-darkening shades worked. Wireless Internet was easy to connect to, with good enough response time for my tablet. I didn't have time to eat the breakfast, so can't rate that.
Only negatives: A bit of hallway and next-room noise.
Overall, a nice hotel room. Price was a touch higher than I'd have liked for what it is; but not enough to make me avoid it in future.
