Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pato55 Great Location and Very Nice Hotel
We met family in Winona and stayed here (our second time). The staff is very friendly and courteous, and the location is great for access to many things in the area. The price was reasonable for the fall tourist season and the free breakfast makes it competitive with other hotels in the area.

We were in Winona for a little family getaway and had an extremely positive experience staying at this Holiday Inn Express. The room was very comfortable (atmosphere, beds, etc), our son was obsessed with the pool area, and the breakfast provided far exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this area!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Business Traveler17 Smoking near Entrance
Did business travel here, staff was wonderful. I requested a room in a specific location on the 1st floor to make it more accessible to me and they were able to meet that request! Overall, great place to stay whether personal/business travel.
Only problem I have with them is the Smoking. They should BAN the smoking near the hotel entrance. Everytime i left and came back i reeked like smoke because all of them would be right by the door on the benches. Move the benches over 30 feet from the building. The staff needs to better enforce that because some people with medical problems can't be around that.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by carguys checking in
I want to start out that my first experience was tremendous, this last visited started with our check in being very bad. we arrived at 4pm to check in to find out that our room was not ready due the fact a soccer team decided to go to there game and not check out on family weekend at both universities and all area hotels were booked solid. the young man at the counter was doing his best but the phone was ringing of the hook and no one was there to help.. he was trying to deal with irate customers trying to check in like us and being told the same thing. of course the manager was no where to be found and would not answer her phone. A good manager would know how busy this weekend is to the area and would staff accordingly in case of any unexpected dilemma. I truly like the location to the university and all it offers. I did expect a free stay but with us staying two nights a small discount of some sort would have been a nice gesture. our son will be in the area for the next four years. we will visiting a lot and were driving 6 hrs to get there a little friendlier approach would have been nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sooz67 room temperature
I don't like the fact that the air conditioner doesn't go on unless it is above 50 degrees outside. We had to open the window during the night because it got extremely warm in the room because the fan was on but it was circulating warm air. There needs to be a way to let overnight guests use the air conditioner even if it is cooler outside. Many people like using the air at night even during cooler months while staying in a hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by smumomlc nice hotel, breakfast gal needed help
We had a pleasant stay for our needs at hiexpress in Winona. The bed was very comfortable and room was clean.
Only complaints were that there wasn't a great system for moving air in the room. If we put on the fan it was so loud you couldn't talk let alone sleep. We functioned with the window wide open in 40 degree weather and were still uncovered.
Plus - when I found someone at the front desk - by hollering - he was willing to share some small plates with us in the evening.
Breakfast - there was one woman doing her best, but the that was not adequate for the crowd at the hotel. Garbage cans were overflowing and she simply could not keep up with stocking the food. Staffing should have been adequate for the very full hotel.
Pool area was nice, but your towels are getting thin. Bathroom towels were very nice, clean, and smelled good.

This hotel is a good safe bet for a classic Holiday Inn Express experience. Nice clean rooms and good location on the main busy street convenient to everything.
