Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tim2645 Would not come back again
We had a difficult time finding the hotel because their lighting was out. The room was dirty, hair all over the bathroom. At 8 AM hotel maid service not only knocked on the door but tried entering the room while we were sleeping. I told them we were leaving at 10:30 and to come back then. The same individual knocked on the door one hour later. This was not the quality or hospitality I expected from a quality hotel,we left very disappointed

Our room was musty smelling, the food at breakfast was awful (we went out for breakfast instead) and the chemicals in the pool were so strong that my eyes burned within seconds of walking into the pool area. I wouldn't go back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kathy101 Enjoyed our stay - except for the breakfast/price
We had a good stay last weekend. There was only two issues.
There were so many sports teams at the hotel that when we went down for breakfast most of the food was gone and it took too long for the food to be replaced. The kitchen should have been better prepared.
For the price we paid for a 3 day stay it was a poor value.

I made a reservation for one of the jacuzzi suites for a birthday "staycation". I made the reservation about 2 weeks in advance and paid ahead of time. When I checked in, the woman at the desk was very kind and helpful. The room was nice and seemed very clean at first glance. Unfortunately though when I tried to use the jacuzzi I needed to clean it first. Then after filling it up and getting into it I noticed that there was a very nasty yellowish-green chunky film along the top of the water and forming on the bubbles and the edge of the tub. So we got out and showered immediately. We didn't call to have it cleaned because it was already so late at night and we should never have had to in the first place. Then on top of that the next morning before we checked out I realized that they had charged me for the room twice. When I checked out and told the woman at the desk she denied it and continued to argue with me that they hadn't. When she finally realized that they had in fact charged me twice she said that it would be refunded into my account within a week or so. When I complained about the jacuzzi as well she took my number and said she would have the manager call me. I still haven't heard from them and I am deeply disappointed considering I paid more for a room with a jacuzzi and didn't even get the chance to enjoy it.
I don't think I would ever recommend this hotel or come back again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ann5944n Room Description Incorrect - Disappointed
We came in to town with our teenage daughter for a sports event and booked a suite. The description specifically read "seperate living area with a sofa bed and 32" TV", but all it was is a queen size room with more furniture stuffed in it. The "living area" is not seperated in any way, and there was no TV in that area. We would have been better off with a 2 queen room, at least my daughter would have had a real bed, as long as we were all sleeping in the same room. Very disappointed and feel I overpaid for this so-called suite.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. Usually I take time and read the reviews before I make a reservation. This time a spur of the moment change of plans made me choose this hotel without any time to review it. The rooms were large, clean and the hotel in general very nice. I loved the fresh flowers at the reception desk and on the tables in the breakfast area. Everything was very nice and the staff was friendly and welcoming. What a great location after driving from Montreal!

We had a small family reunion at your property and were extremely impressed with the hotel and amenities. The lobby and breakfast area are both inviting and upscale. Your staff is great. We especially were impressed with the young gentleman who checked us in and then enrolled us in your Rewards program when we departed. Unfortunately we did not get his name but we checked out on Sunday, September 22nd. Were so impressed that we plan to change our hotel preference in the future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mlc0973 Could have been better
We visited the hotel for my twins 8th birthday. There was many kids in the pool area that were unsupervised and were being very unruly and dangerous. We booked the hotel because of the pool but could not enjoy it. I told the front desk but the kids were still there later in the evening. A waste of money for a special day. The room was overall nice but could have been cleaned a little more thorough.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Theodore Friendly staff but poor maintenance
Our room was an upgrade from a suite to a jacuzzi suite as a result of my priority club membership. The jacuzzi however, was in the bedroom and we didn't use it. We thought it would be a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. More importantly, we informed the desk of a noisy refrigerator and a low water pressure situation in the shower. Although we stayed two nights and reported the maintenance needs on the first day, no maintenance was performed and the noisy refrigerator interrupted our sleep. The breakfast was average and needed added attention due to the large number of guests on the days we were there. Some items were not available when we were at the breakfast. This HI Express is not up to standard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MMMom Great for child's birthday party
We did their birthday package for both of our children this summer, two weeks apart. What a fun idea! We got a king room attached to a small meeting room. Both rooms have a small refrigerator and microwave. These rooms are at the end of the hall where the pool is, away from other guest rooms so we didn't have to worry about making too much noice, and had convenient access to the pool. The kids slept on sleeping bags in the meeting room, had a large TV on the wall and DVD player, while mom could relax next door. The kids had a great time on their birthday 'getaway', the staff was great. The room was clean and quiet when the kids were quiet:) Breakfast was included and had a great variety.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CuseIHGmember the non-jacuzzi suite
My wife and I spent the day in the Rochester area. We were spending the night away for our anniversary. We selected this hotel because they offered a Jacuzzi Suite for our Chase Free Night.
When we got settled, we decided to use the jacuzzi. We noticed a couple hairs in the tub. To be safe we decided to rinse the tub with soap and washcloths. The water was dirty looking when filling up. We kept cleaning until clear. (The front desk later tried to say the water was that color because they had hard water. I live in a hard water area and I know the difference. Besides, eventually the water stopped being dirty after a lot of cleaning).
We started filling the tub. Then we found that the jacuzzi jets were broken. After wasting a lot of time with 2 staff members trying to get it to work, I complained to the manager. Obviously my anniversary getaway in a jacuzzi room wasn't going well. The only thing they could offer was another King Suite (non-jacuzzi). I told them I would be complaining to IHG and I would get my free night back or I would be done with IHG Rewards for my business travel. IHG gave me 10,000 points but I don't think that is sufficient. I plan to contact Chase to see if they will be willing to help out as well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 How about some Coffee?
Two of five days guests had to wait for coffee in the morning. This was at 06:15. Hot breakfast doesn't start until 06:30 so our team of 12 couldn't try it, but hot coffee should be provided.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kailab Very clean
Arrived early and hotel appeared empty not a person in sight including any employees. After waiting a few minutes at the front desk, someone appeared, actually startled to see me. Immediately said check in isn't till 3:00 I think , I said no problem I was in the area and thought I would check she said ok I will see what I have. They did have my room ready, I have to say that the front desk clerk was very informative and wanted to share everything with me. Room was excessively large, but had a chemical smell when u entered, not sure what that was, but things appeared clean, including washroom. Was disappointed at the time the breakfast opened, online it says earlier than it actually opened. And I felt as if they might be short staffed because I did see a guest go to front desk to inform someone that the regular coffee was already emptied and the gentlemen at the front desk left there to go to the kitchen, that unfortunately proved to be a problem for me who wanted to check out. I waited maybe just over five minutes, yelled hello to see if there was someone in the office behind the front desk but no show. My guess is the front desk person left his post for a coffee replenishment and forgot to check on the front desk, I left without for,ally checking out, no invoice or anything, I will wait to see if I have a problem when my visa comes. Overall it's a holiday inn express, not the ritz!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GoingElsewhere Hopeless
We arrived at the hotel after midnight with a confirmation number for a booking made over the web. The hotel could not find any record of our booking despite the fact that I could find the booking and the confirmation on the corporate site. No compensation and a recommendation to travel a further 60 miles down the road to a competitor (who had already received 3 other bookings from ousted guests at the same hotel). It has now been a week and the hotel did not seem to care that they couldn't serve us and never bothered to inform the Corp that the stay never happened...

I have stayed here a number of times for both business and pleasure. The property is relatively new, it's easy to get to, and the price is reasonable. Out back there is a 1 mile walk around the lake that can help you destress and get some exercize. They have the typical Holiday Inn Express breakfast. Coffee is great !

Stayed with my wife, daughter and grandson while visiting my aging mother and step-father in Webster.
The staff at this hotel are to be commended on the great service that they provide. On every coming and going, I was greeted with a smile. On one evening when my daughter had dislocated her knee, the two staff members on duty at the reception were most helpful and even enquired the next morning as to how she was doing. Any organization is only as strong as the staff working in it and this Holiday Inn Express really has something to be proud of. I only wish that there had been bacon every morning as I am not a great fan of sausage or the mash that was offered on the other mornings; personal preference. Otherwise, excellent breakfast choices. When I brought the fact that the pool was not yet open one morning to the reception staff, it was looked after immediately and my grandson was able to get a swim in before heading to his great-grandmother's for the day. I will definately stay at this hotel on future visits and recommend it to other out of town relatives visiting mom.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sparks13 Happy in Webster, NY
This was the second time I stayed at this location and was pleased yet again. Specifically the evening/night front desk staff - they are very kind and seem genuinly interested in the guests. I was always greeted and engaged in casual conversation when I was coming in at night, after a workout in the gym, bringing in dinner - it was nice to feel that someone was paying extra attention to me and interested in my activities.
The only reason I did not give the facility a full 5 Star review was the lack of a 2nd treadmill during my stay. One was down for repair/maintenance when I checked-in and sometimes juggling use of 1 treadmill was a difficult with all the guests. I was hoping during my 5 night stay that would have been addressed by the facility.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TerriSt Not a bad stay, but a few things could be better
First and foremost, I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a quiet, clean hotel with easy access to the major roads. Next time I am in the area, I will certainly return to this hotel.
That being said, I see a few things that could have made my stay EXCELLENT as opposed to GOOD.
1. There was no recognition of my Priority Club status. Many hotels give you a goody bag upon check-in as a bonus for your club status. Nothing at all here.
2. The pool doesn't open until 9 AM, but breakfast hours end at 9:30 SHARP. Typically, my family likes to have a quick swim, breakfast, and then check-out. We had to do breakfast before the swim, which admittedly isn't a big deal, but if you listen to your mother, you shouldn't swim after a meal. LOL. I just wish the pool opened earlier for people who want to take a quick lap before getting on the road.
3. The staff who manned the breakfast area weren't the friendliest. One walked around with a frown on her face while the other raced around the area getting in the way of the guests. There were no acknowledgements of the guests (a "hi, good morning" would have gone a long way to making people feel welcomed instead of in the way). Garbage cans were filled to the brim when we arrived for breakfast and had not been emptied by the time we left.
4. The vending machine for drinks on the fourth floor took my money and wouldn't vend anything. The staff member at the desk gave us a bottle of water to rectify the situation. However, a note was not put on the machine indicating that it was out of order so other guests would not have the same issue. The machine was still malfunctioning and there was no indication not to use the machine on the day that we left. Again, this isn't a big deal, and I suspect that a vending company takes care of the machine, but shouldn't a staff member have dealt with alerting others of the problem so other guests wouldn't lose their money, too?
5. On the second day of our stay, our room keys decided to stop working. We were carrying a sleeping toddler and multiple packages to our room when this occurred. We trudged downstairs with our obviously full hands to get the problem rectified. The woman working the desk gave us replacements and turned back to her colleague to continue their discussion. I kind of expected to hear an "I'm sorry this happened. Please accept our apologies". But, nothing was said other than "here's some replacement keys".
This hotel has potential to be a superb hotel with some minor changes. I hope management takes reviews seriously and makes the necessary changes to improve guest experience.

My time at the Webster Holiday Inn Express was very enjoyable.
I had to stay there due to business commitments for over two weeks, and had to extend my stay twice. The staff was able to advise and accommodate me which was a great relief. The staff there are very friendly making for an enjoyable experience.
