We stayed here overnight on our way to Michigan. The staff was great, I was upgraded to a nice clean, well kept room with a great bed and a great shower. HI Express has the best breakfasts in the business, and this hotel did not disappoint. I will certainly stay here again. You should too.

Haven't stayed at a Holiday Inn in about 20 years, so wasn't sure how it would be. Also this is first trip with a pet so additionally wasn't sure what to expect. Turns out this was a wonderful stay. It is definitely pet-friendly. No one batted an eye when my German Shepherd walked in. Really appreciated that. Most hotels have...

The first night I was in a tornado watch. The hotel was laid out nicely for emergencies if needed. The beds were comfortable and the room thermostat was easy to control. The hotel was tucked away in a quiet corner away from the freeway and city. Close to restaurants and the university. I would definitely stay here again

Absolutely love this hotel. My 7 year old enjoys their kids pool and game room. Easy access to the highway and restaurants. Clean and friendly staff. Rooms are also spacious and clean. Parking is easily assessable. Always snacks at the check in. Highly recommended for a weekend stay.

We stayed here with our two dogs, a toddler, my husband and myself. Upon check in, the two ladies upfront, Collette being one of them, were very sweet. She called after we got settled to see how our room was. The room was clean and pretty quiet. The breakfast was great! We had been traveling from Anchorage in our SUV,...

The rooms are well lit, clean and well cared for. The help were all really efficient and made me feel welcome. The best part is they start their really well appointed breakfast at 5 am so you can get up and get on with your day.

The room worked out to $186 American with the $35 pet fee and taxes on both the room and the pet fee. Normally we leave a tip for cleaning staff, but not when pet fees are so expensive. The free breakfast was not very appetizing. The room was clean and the bed fairly comfortable. This was the most expensive hotel...

Reasonably modern. Simple check-in. There were some families using the pool which we didn't need to as we wanted to go straight to sleep in the large, comfortable bed. Wifi worked well, bathroom was clean. All in all, a great value option. The only negative to me was the breakfast. Overcrowded breakfast room with insufficient seating and the food was...
