We had a nice stay at this hotel. The front desk staff were efficient and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. We used the fitness center, pool and hot tub during our stay which were all great facilities. The lakeside dining room was lovely, we had breakfast there each morning and the service was fantastic. One bad thing I...

seaoh11596, thank you so much for your 5 star review of our hotel and I appreciate you understanding that we were extremely busy and some people did not receive the service they are accustomed to. Going forward we will do a better job of staffing in the bar when we have a popular event like the snowmobile races. Once again...

I travel for work 75+ nights a year. The Holiday Inn has become one of my homes away from home. Joe and Jackie are just two of the staff that are not just front desk clerks, but friends. Their friendly demeanor and the willingness to extend the extra effort to make sure my stay is the best it can be,...

Friendly and courteous staff. Our meeting room (fireside) had a HVAC system that had a loud fan, causing some communication problems. Room was clean. Coffee was good! The lobby area seemed inviting enough but the elevator was slow. People like me like to use the stairs, so I would recommend sprucing that space up a bit other than the green...

Nice stay after a long day. Right on Detroit lake, close to restaurants. Poolside rooms can get a little loud but nothing to bad. Coffee in the lobby for people leaving before dawn would be nice. And no free breakfast. Rooms are cheaper if your a IGH member Would definitely recommend

We stayed the weekend of May 5th and 6th for a funeral. It was unfortunate circumstances, but you can't ask for anything better than friendly staff members and comfy bed. Definitely worth the price, right off of Detroit Lake, (great views if you ask for a room with a view) with a convenient bar and grill in the restaurant complete...

Hotel has everything you need for a nice getaway- hotel, restaurant and bar- all lakeside- Get the main floor walkout suites- worth every penny to be able to sit on small private patio onto the lake or take a stroll without having to go through the lobby- Even if you get upper floors, choose lakeside as they all have balconies...
