They always make feel welcome and have eaten well round breakfast. Have stayed there more than once. Would stay again. Very clean and organized and lots of restaurants around to have dinner at. Easy access on and off I-5 so make it easy to get to.
Very difficult to make reservations. Incompetent people taking reservation. Gave my email address 2X, also, my IHG number. Reservation was made under wrong IHG number. Not able to clearly understand reservationist. Very poor.
The best breakfast ever for a hotel! The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean! The television was nice and big. The lobby was very nice and clean plus the front desk was very helpful!
The breakfast was awesome. The room included everything you needed and the option to get things you forgot. You could tell the building was built quickly and for profit as the corners in the other waist beautiful bathroom shower did not match up correctly. But the bed was comfortable and the bedding good quality.
The hotel looked new (it was) and the staff greeted me warmly. After getting to my room, I noticed it was clean and well stocked. It was a bit chilly but easily adjustable. Bed was very comfy. Great value!

I specifically asked for a handicapped room, we used before, knowing my mother's abilities, and the reservation was made for this specific room the morning of our arrival at Harrisburg Holiday Inn Express. Upon arrival, was told this room was not available, said no other handicapped room similar was available. My mother could not access this bathroom with her walker, or get up from using the facilities. Very frustrating stay, and management did nothing to satisfy our needs. No consideration for the handicapped.
Rooms are outdated. Rooms need to be cleaner. First room we were assigned was not very clean, the shower was rusty and the water was cold to a point that we had to be relocated to another room. After we were relocated I started getting bites on my legs and I realized that these bites are from bedbugs! I would also like to mention that breakfast was cold/lukewarm and bagels/toast stale every day! And, God forbid you show up 10 minutes early to attempt to get a hot breakfast 'cause the staff will scold you for showing up early! I would NEVER stay here again or recommend this place to anyone.
I have had 3 bad experiences with IHG hotels. From the reservations to the conditions of the hotel. They only want to give me points to put towards another stay. I would look otherwise if you are shopping for a hotel that will stand behind what they advertise.
My daughter and I were going to Universal Studios to see the lights, so we book a room at the Holiday Inn Express. An hour later we discovered the park was closing at 6:00 pm and there would be no lights. So we turned around and canceled but was charged full price of the room. So before you book make sure you're going to go because you will still be charged if you cancel!
We had most horrific experience at Holiday Inn Express Roslyn Long Island location, 1053 Northern bold, Roslyn NY 11576. After driving for 11 hours we got to the hotel at 12am got our keys went to our room and opened the door and saw a dirty room. No one had cleaned the room after the prior guest had left. So we went down to complain to the front desk guy named **. He was non-reactive to our complaint and was not apologetic at all instead he said these things happen no big deal.
So after maybe 30 mins he gave keys to another room we went up again to the new room. Now it’s almost 1:00 am we tried to open the door and heard a loud yell “wait“. We did not know what was really happening. We waited in front of the room for 10 more minutes then we started hearing loud yelling and fighting. That’s when we realized that few people are already in the room. Then a man opens the door and tells us that "he is staying in the room..." We were just dumbfounded. We went down. Asked the front desk guy... again same non-apologetic response. His response was he can’t do anything because the guest refuses to leave the room. So we went to nearby Hilton to stay the night. Got checked in there at 1:30 am. Holiday Inn is very unprofessional company. Will never stay in this chain. I am also IHG reward member.
I was charged for a hotel I never stayed at. I had canceled more than two months in advance. I had tried contacting IHG as well as Holiday Inn Express and kept getting the runaround. After finally making many efforts to resolve this I filed a dispute with my bank and then a month later received a letter stating cancellation policy. The guest will be charged the total price if they cancel at any time. Buyer beware!
I went to hotel on 9/1/18... at a double queen bedroom. 1) There was total construction and they did not mention online. 2) At 11 pm when we went to go to sleep, we found one of the beds totally dirty, the sheets were not changed, there was human hair all over it and there was booger on back of pillow and torn old pillowcase. I picked up the phone to call front desk, was also so dirty, sticky, full of small hair stuck between gaps and lines. I told the girl at front desk. She arrived, we both took pictures of the condition of the sheets, and the telephone. She changed sheets and left the other sheets on the floor in the room. When I emailed the customer service to complain about the 2 issues. They did not care at all.
Checked into the Holiday Inn Express in Brentwood, CA for 3 nights on 8/14/18. When we got into the room I noticed a sticky spot in front of the coffee pot and wiped it up with a cloth. It was filthy. Notified the desk clerk the next morning & she said she'd bring it to the attention of the cleaning staff. Upon return to the hotel later in the day, my wife took a shower and noticed dirty pools of water where she walked on the tile floor. I wiped the floor again and found the entire floor was filthy. I cleaned the floor with the washcloth and water the best I could, I did not clean in front of the door.
Next morning I brought it to the attention of the desk clerk and she got the GM. I explained the problem and he asked me what I wanted him to do. I told him to clean the room. He asked if the sheets and bed were clean and I replied "yes". He did not seem to think the floor being dirty was a problem and asked me if I wanted to move to another hotel. I just wanted the room to be cleaned. He said they only do a "deep cleaning" once in a while, not daily. When we got back, I wiped the floor molding, a picture frame and the headboard with a cloth, Disgustingly dirty!
On the third day we left in the morning and upon returning that night found the room had not been cleaned, bed not made and the "Do not disturb" sign on the door. We didn't hang that sign. Someone had come into the room, turned off the TV, turned up the thermometer to 75 degrees and emptied the Kleenex box out. There were no clean towels, bed not made and trash not emptied. I won't stay in this place again! The desk clerk, Caroline, was nice and helpful, but the GM was non-caring, obnoxious and arrogant.
I made a reservation through this business months ago. It was a 'prepaid' plan, meaning they charged you immediately. My situation has changed and I called to cancel and they refused to refund ONE CENT. They said--"Sorry, the policy states if you cancel, you lose your deposit" (which is the entire $2500!!). I did not see this particular policy when I purchased it. Upon reviewing the **confirmation email**, lo and behold--there it is. I'm trying to get in touch with the hotel manager (Holiday Inn Express Milwaukee N. Brown Deer/Mequon), and Rosa, the manager has either been "out" or she's "not available", and my requests to either call her directly or have them call her for me have been refused.
When I asked who Rosa's supervisor was, I was told he wasn't available either. The front desk girl RELUCTANTLY sent me to Agis' voice mail, where I left a detailed message. I called back to the front desk and was told the manager "wasn't working today" when earlier I'd been told she was there from 7:00-12:00, and was out for the afternoon. I was assured she would call me tomorrow--when I said, "I was assured she would call me today and she didn't," the front desk lady became obstinate. I requested her to call her and have her call me. She said there was no way to get in touch with her today. I said--"So, if the hotel caught fire, there would be NO WAY to get in touch with the MANAGER?!?!"
Again, she refused. I said--"I know she's on call because the front desk girl yesterday said she was on call 24/7, so please call her and have her call me." Nope, nope, nope. I did get an email address for Rosa prior to getting off the phone. When I tried it, there was no @ in the address. I put one in where I thought it should go, and MAYBE sent it, maybe not. 1,000% DO NOT lose your money with this business and STAY AWAY from the Holiday Inn Express Milwaukee N. Brown Deer/Mequon. I would give MINUS 5 stars if I could, I am so aggravated with getting the run-around. Unbelievable in this day and age of 'customer service'! Never again!
I reserved a room for a one-night stay for a family member at the Quakertown, PA Holiday Express. The room was "non-smoking". I was charged $250 extra because my family member had a cigarette in their car just before registering at this hotel, put it out before they entered the facility and once in the room deposited it in the waste basket. When I called the hotel after seeing the $250 overcharge on my credit card, I was told someone had smoked in the room... which was not true... no smoke detector was activated and no one smoked in the room. I was charge $250 for the maid to empty a wastepaper basket with a cigarette butt in it. Used the hotel website "chat" feature to register a complaint regarding the outrageous overcharge but, of course, was never given the courtesy of a response. Will take my business elsewhere in the future where customer courtesy may still exist.
I was in town for a job interview and had arranged to stay at this hotel for 2 nights based on the online rate $69.99 veterans rate. It said it has amenities like room service and restaurant on site, breakfast. Heated indoor pool, gym, full coffee in room, new updates to all rooms and just a loaded upscale place. We checked in at 10:25 pm and mentioned we may not stay the second night. For some food from the pantry as there is no food there and none nearby as advertised. Lie one! We were soon to find no heat in the room on a 30 Degree night! Lie 2. No working phones to call for help! Lie 3. No indoor pool! Lie 4. The breakfast was gross and limited to a bagel or a rotten fruit and stale coffee. Lie 5. The list grows. We had to step out for my interview and let the housekeeper know because there weren’t signs To not enter the room.
They not only entered but went through our things! When we came back we got stopped and verbally told loudly in the packed lobby we would be charged $50 for being smokers. Even though they saw my guest go outside to smoke, the smell wasn’t worth the cost to them so they felt they could just charge us without any upfront notice for being smokers. We packed and decided to leave after telling the manager she wasn’t allowed to charge anyone for being a smoker unless they smoked in the room. She refused to show me our bill, refused to check us out. We told the girl at the desk we would not be back and to not charge us for the night we left before 2 pm. We had asked for a late check out the night before and the manager deciding to change that to be spiteful wasn’t acceptable. I was told they allowed my guest to charge food to my card and that also wasn’t ok.I was charged $198 for a one night stay instead of $69 plus tax which should have been 74.54 Nothing more. I got a drink and lunchable and 2 chocolate bars.
The drink was $1.79, bars were $1.39*2 and lunchable $1.39. That doesn’t equal $198. Even with 2 nights the most would have been $157. They overcharged me and refused to give me back the money I am owed which is roughly $118. I am expecting this returned now and if not I will be hiring a legal firm to seek three times that amount and file whatever charges can be filed against your license to continue to operate and use Credit card services. I am also going to report you to all banking venues and local social media for how you conduct business.
My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn at 186 Hendersonville Road in Asheville N.C. and what I saw just blew my mind. First they have this so called manager working there named **. I seen her yelling at the top of her lungs to a nice young man (**) who was nothing but great to my wife and myself and other hotel guests for not doing something because he was tending to us. So ** was actually acting like a big shot for all to see.
About ten minutes or so after that ** stormed out of the hotel (I assume she was going out for lunch or dinner) got in her car a peeled out of the lot going very fast almost hitting two young children with her car. Needless to say the father also seen this and man did he let her have it. People like ** should never be working in public and is oh so lucky she didn't hit those kids with her car. That guy ** should be running the place. He was more than nice and knew what he was doing. I will never stay at another Holiday Inn again because if that's the way they treat their employees and guests? I want nothing to do with them, just a very sad and stupid experience.
I made reservations online thru Holiday Inn Express on 5/19 for 4 days, starting 5/21 thru 5/24/18, I stayed on the 20th and 21st and had a family emergency so I checked out early morning on the 22nd, Holiday Inn charged me for the full 4 days even though I only stayed 2 and refused to refund or credit my account claiming I can't check out early as it was prepaid reservation. I traveled for work for over 30 years staying in Holiday Inn an average 10 days per month, many times I made reservations and had to change and cancel and as long as cancelled by 4pm on check in day or check out by check out was only charged for actual stay. I spoke to general manager of hotel he actually said though, "We are not refunding you and thanks for leaving."
To make a long story short our one year old spilled a plate of scrambled eggs from the breakfast buffet on the floor. My fiancée picked up what she could with her hands and then went to tell housekeeping. This was right before check out. They said not to worry they would get it. Not an hour after check out I was charged 150 dollars on my card. I called to ask why and the manager said the room was a mess. She sent me pictures of eggs spilled on the floor and coffee cups and other trash can items that had been in the trash cans were now spread around the room. The eggs that had been in a pile from the plate dropping were also spread out but still nothing a vacuum can't handle. She even sent pictures of towels on the floor in the bathroom? The sign in the room says please put your towels on the floor if dirty? I Would avoid this place unless you like a shakedown.
Holiday Inn Express East Jacksonville Fl stayed April 13, 2018. 5/1/2018. Watch your credit card. They billed me twice. Requested non-smoking room because no one in my party smoked. My card was charged twice. They claimed my bathroom smelled like smoke and I am fighting this. The staff told me that housekeeping smelled smoke. Someone at that hotel is trying to pocket $150. I have already filed a complaint with corporate. I don't like being called a liar when I know that no one in my party smokes. Stay away from this Hotel. What a terrible thing to do to your guest and then the manager not even call you back to try to fix the issue! Sure wish I had stayed somewhere else. Thought the name Holiday Inn name "Stood for Something" and had higher standards. I am an IHG reward member but think I will take my business elsewhere!
I have called and left messages and sent an e-mail to Doug ** and have not received any response back. This is for the Holiday Inn Express, Nashville, TN. This is unprofessional and unacceptable to treat anyone this way. Below is the e-mail I sent Mr. ** yesterday and have not heard from him. This has been going on for two weeks now so I emailed every possible address for the hotel and no response.
I made a reservation on 02/10/2018 and my Debit Card was charged $2,378 on 02/15/2018. Because of a work conflict I had to cancel the reservation on 02/20/2018. My reservation was for June 5th thru June 10th 2018 and I know the hotel is completely booked now for those dates because of the Special Event the CMA Festival. I didn't realize or read the confusing statement about cancellations at the time of the booking that I would be charged the full amount of $2,378 for cancellation and I don't think that is fair considering that the hotel is completely sold out. Evidently this practice is ongoing and is FRAUD and should be stopped. This is the last time I ever book directly with a hotel because there isn't any protection from being taken advantage of.
Updated on 03/11/2018: This is an update on Holiday Inn Express and all IHG hotels. I found this article date July 25, 2017 that stated that InterContinental Hotels Group is introducing a policy enabling customers at most hotels to cancel without penalty if they give at least 24 hours' notice. Hilton said last month that its cancellation policies vary at hotels, and an online search verified that. Some properties had 24-hour windows and others had 48. And, 72-hour cancellation deadlines are not uncommon in the industry.
During my stay at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites address 405 N Park Road Wyomissing PA 19610 everything was great until the end. I was charged a smoking fee of $230. I DO NOT SMOKE AND MY BOYFRIEND DID NOT SMOKE IN THE ROOM. I had to call three times to speak to the general manager **. Upon speaking with ** he was very unprofessional. ** would not let me finish a thought. He said, "I smelled the smoke myself." I told him that was a lie because we did not smoke and that I would like to get a corporate number or speak with someone above him. He told me there isn't anyone above him and did not provide a corporate number. I had to find that on my own. I told ** that I was going to dispute it and before I could finish speaking he spoke harshly to me and hung up.
I tried to tell him before he hung that throwing an empty cigarette pack in the garbage does not constitute as smoking. I've worked in the hotel industry and ** knows that he did not smell any smoke in that room. I feel scammed out of money by this hotel. I never stay at hotels not owned by Marriott, my boyfriend decided we should try it and I will never stay at any intercontinental-owned hotel ever again. The way this general manager ** spoke to me was very appalling and unprofessional. When you are in the business of hospitality you need to speak to people with respect. I will not rest until $230 is returned to me.
I work for a company and one of the employees was going to travel to Detroit for business. The employee had a family emergency and did not use the reservation. I called the hotel and explained the situation. The manager, Jessica stated that it would not be an issue to refund our money. I asked her twice. Then I told her that we would rebook for the following week. We did and figured all was well. Anyway, we had to cancel the latest reservation, several days ahead. We were charged, so I called and Jessica was rude. I told her that the reservation was cancelled. She said she comp me the second reservation and charged for the first, however, that was never stated in our conversation. I told her that it was a family emergency, and she said you need to have your ducks in a row. If that is how management treats customers, then she needs to be fired!!! So very rude. I am not a rude person, but she brought out the worst in me.
I travel for business and had booked a stay at Holiday Inn Express for several days. Due to a change in plans I had to check out early. However, I was charged with the full amount. Holiday Inn said that since I had booked in advance I could not get a refund to my charge card for the day that I was not there. Very upset with this business.
Consumer beware! Like other reviewers I inadvertently made a reservation with an “advanced purchase rate”. When booking the reservation, I assumed my credit card was used to hold the room not purchase a rate. I tried to cancel my reservation FOUR MONTHS in advance. When I contacted the hotel directly, the staff was rude and condescending. They would not issue a refund and I was out the money. Lesson learned. Never do business with IHG hotels. Hopefully IHG will review this terrible hotel reservation policy.
We unknowingly booked an "advance purchase rate" as the total of $273.39 seemed well within the “normal rate” charge for a 2 night stay at Holiday Inn Express. The cancellation of this reservation was made a full 10 days prior to the reserved night due to the cancellation of the event we were to attend. The IHG guest relations customer service representatives keep referring us to the hotel GM who refuses to refund the money and refers us back to guest relations. Talk about a scam! Didn't realize that Holiday Inn was that hard up for money that they would institute such a policy and leave no room for grace even when cancellation was made a full 10 days prior.
When we 1st arrived to the 1st room the refrigerator wasn't working correctly. Then the heat was not working either. There was no remote for the TV. They brought us one but we were told it probably won't work. In which it did not work. The lightbulb in the bathroom was out & had to be replaced. Then they decided to just move us to another room. We froze our behinds off that night! The heat did not work in that room either! First thing in the morning that was addressed. When it was told to the woman at the front desk she got an attitude. They said they would have someone to fix it.
I realized there was a pair of my earrings missing. We went to the front desk and the General Manager was called to the front desk. She called both people to the front desk and told them that we are claiming a pair of earrings were lost. But she told us that that is unheard of from her employees. So the only thing you can do is call the police and make a report! She was very ignorant and unconcerned.
We went out for breakfast. I called back to speak to the GM to ask her if she could see to it that no one goes into our room because we were very uncomfortable with anyone in there. She says "Well when are you coming back because I rented out that room for the day!" I was in a state of shock because we were not due to check out until the next day. She also claimed she would give us 2000 points more for the other inconveniences but she never did. This behavior is unacceptable as a General Manager! I only gave it a one because it couldn't been a nice stay with better service!
Delafield, WI. Nice hotel just needs a little better maid service. A smaller Hotel but in a very accessible area to restaurants, shopping, movie theaters and gas stations. We always enjoy our stays at Holiday Inn Express. Nice pool, and complimentary breakfast.
This post is regards to my interaction with Ms. Vicky **, GM, at the Holiday Inn in San Pablo, CA. On Tuesday at 12:45 AM, I contacted the property requesting to cancel my reservation due to a family emergency. My father and travel companion was admitted to the hospital. A very nice rep advised to call and speak to his manager Ms. Vicky between the hours of 9AM-5PM.
Around 11:00 AM. Ms. Vicky answered the line and I restated my situation and offered proof of my dad's hospitalization. I asked an exception to either refund my entire stay or pay a 1 night penalty. Ms. Vicky was unmoved by my situation and began to recite the terms of my purchase. This manager had the authority to turn this unfortunate, unforeseen situation into a positive engagement but she choose not to do so. Why don't companies realize you can make a lot more money in future business just by extending a lil bit of compassion especially when you can provide proof!
The hotel was nice. The rooms are good. My only concern and issue is the management and how they treat customers. I was staying at the Holiday Inn Express in Mesquite Nevada on the 10th and 11th. That weekend my son was down there for a soccer tournament. Since I’m a member they said I could have a late check out at 2 PM. His game was a little bit later than that. They said it was OK to stay till three and then it would not cost me anything extra because no one else was checking out at that time so we did. Few days later I get a charge for 6250. When I called to talk to management about it she was very rude and unprofessional and would not take it off. Now she’s tack on more money. It’s up to $87.44 now more. This is not OK.
