The front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. After inquiring about where to eat, he provided suggestions for a couple of good-food restaurants.The hotel was easily accessible with coffee provided right by the front desk, as well as restrooms close to the front entrance. (An important feature if you've had a long drive and 'waited' to get there.) The rooms...

When you drive up to this hotel it is not appealing. It is tucked away behind an office building/bank and the parking lot is a bit sketchy-feeling. The front parking lot was full and so I drove around back. The back parking lot leaves much to be desired. The entrances to the hotels feel like darkly lit corner doors. The...

Nice rooms, quiet with no hillbillies slamming doors, nice morning buffet. White collar professional appear to use hotel. Across the street from a Perkins Family Restaurant, which serves very good food. As with many hotels, the desk help often are a mixed lot. They are often younger people who lack inter personnel communication skills and act as if they would...

I'm sort of on the fence about the Holiday Inn Express in Bemidji. I first must point out the entire staff from the front desk to housekeeping were all very friendly, always greeting you with a smile. The location is good, near restaurants and shopping and near the Interstate. I'm iffy for the following reasons...the hotel is a bit older...

This hotel is showing some age and obvious lack of maintenance. The PTAC AC units all rattle, I moved from 1 room because of this and the next one was worse. Everything is dated and worn out. The staff is excellent and the rooms are clean but I stay in a Express at least 1 time a week and this...

room was clean...hockey teams staying there and had to ask at 11pm to stop the above room from jumping off beds or playing hockey or whatever. They must have talked with them because it did stop. Breakfast was good and check in and check out was quick and efficient. Would stay again. Next to mall and close to everything.

The exterior and common areas look more like a Super 8, nothing like any Holiday Inn Express I have ever stayed in. Rooms themselves are OK and look standard for the brand. Located in the busy "big box" area of Bemidji. If you are paying near or over $100, there are likely better options even on the lake. Staff were...

The staff is excellent - Jessica in particular (manager) was extremely helpful, genuine and a wonderful person to deal with. The property might be a bit older, but didn't notice, everything in our room, lobby, breakfast area, and parking lot was extremely clean and we were really happy with our stay. The workout room also looked updated and also clean....
