Reviewed 12 September 2015

In Watertown, there are not a lot of hotel options and, during school events, it can be tricky getting a room at a good price. The Holiday Inn Express was a nice value. Room was spacious, had a chair to sit in, wifi was decent, and the room was clean. Having a small refrigerator really helps cut costs when staying...

The hotel was nice compared to other Holiday Inn's I've stayed at. Our room was in the back so never saw any other part of the hotel. It was very average - what I saw of it - our room was comfortable - but the bottom of the door is raised so you can hear every noise outside in the...

Dear chilpickle, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience the noise levels may have caused you. Although it is disheartening that you only found our hotel at its average best, we highly appreciate your comments. I am confident that our management will continue to do their best...

Stayed one night and there were no bad surprises. Beds were comfortable and had a selection of soft and firm pillows. Room was clean and comfortable with the usual amenities. Breakfast was OK to get the day started, the usual fare for a motel of this price range. Seemed a little overpriced but there was nothing that disgusted me during...

Our baseball team stayed overnight and had excellent service as we planned an outdoor potluck after our games. It started raining and they let us use a conference room instead of standing out in the rain. They also set aside an area for everyone to watch the Blackhawks game! Breakfast had a lot of yummy choices! Would definitely stay there...

Quality of sleep was outstanding - great mattresses & pillows. Room well maintained - very clean both room and bath. TV worked fine. Staff is the big plus here - very people friendly and accomodating. Very nice breakfast area - good selection for the mornings. You will enjoy!

From the moment we checked in the front desk person was very unfriendly. She scowled every time we encountered her and never had anything to say that was the slightest bit friendly. She seemed to hover like a disapproving nanny looking for someone who might be doing something "wrong." I had been forewarned about this attitude by someone else who...

Dear genfur, Thank you so much for your review of our hotel. Our hotel is very proud of its level of service, cleanliness and quality of product. It seems that we were not able to execute an exemplary hotel stay with regard to front office services and breakfast items. Rest assured that these aren't reflective of the high standards we...

All of the staff was awesome and the food selection for breakfast was very good as well. Pool area was average, but kept clean. There was usually cookies or bananas in the lobby as well. Great location with restaurants all around the hotel.

The hotel itself is very nice, clean with a great staff. The breakfast is top notch. One added note is I had an interview while I was staying here and they allowed me to use their conference room for the interview at no additional charge. They truly went above and beyond for me.

Visiting a few dairy farms in the area this was central. A good Culvers across the street. My room had a nice TV, jacuzzi tub (in the bedroom), a narrow but satisfactory shower, and a warm breakfast. Internet access was good enough to FaceTime and Netflix. The dairies nearby were outstanding. Go visit a couple and learn how our food...

With both family in town (in a home too small for us to enjoy with them) and closeness to Maranatha Baptist University and Library, we have found this motel a very nice stop. Rooms are large, we enjoy top floor (less ambient noise) and very nice pool. Breakfast is excellent, well-stocked and comfortable. Especially thought the beds of high quality...
