We stayed in the holiday Inn because we had a free night from belonging to IHG/Chase rewards. When I made my reservation, I was booked into the tower suite. The hotel appears to be newer, as everything was really nice & clean. The front desk was very polite and helpful. Our room was fantastic. We had a separate living area,... More

At 11am ON THE DOT we had housekeeping banging on our door. Refused to stop pounding until we answered the door. Informed us checkout was 11am. Apologized as they didn't tell us at check in and I usually stay at Hilton Garden Inns or Courtyard and checkout is always noon. Well, every 10 minutes someone kept trying to come in... More

I have always enjoyed staying at HI express hotels. Beds are very comfortable, but the A/C needs to be worked on in the rooms. Fan seldom worked. All in all- not a bad place to spend an evening. But I can't recommend for a lengthy stay. Very convenient location (right off the expressway) and very close to the casino. I... More

The hotel is right of the interstate, but heard no traffic at all. Staff was very friendly and helpful when asking about things in the area. Located 2 miles to the beach and about 2 miles to the casino. Indoor pool and hot tub was awesome. Rooms were very clean and breakfast was good! Would definitely stay there again

I have stayed at this particular hotel many times, and in fact have reservations again for an upcoming trip. When I first started staying there years ago this was a great, clean, hotel.

Room was clean, breakfast was exactly as expected (HIE standard). Toilet lever broke, but toilet was operational, and maintenance had left for the night, but had a slight hospitality adjustment, so OK. Mattresses were worn out and terrible. Rate, $110, seemed very overpriced, but it was mid summer on the Lake Michigan shore, so it was one of the lowest... More

Consistent with HIE properties, the room was clean and updated. Spacious room with the usual amenities- comfortable bed and bedding, nice bathroom with granite countertops and everything in good working order. The room was nice and quiet, with a quiet air conditioner. Cheerful staff. Hot breakfast as well as the usual cereals, fruit, bagels and muffins.
