We stayed here in August 2015 while on a road trip to Milwaukee. We had stayed in 2013, and felt the property was getting a little tired. The manager posted saying they were renovating in 2014. It seems pretty much the same to me. The location is very good - very convenient to the freeway and a few fast food... More

Joebaba, I am so sorry to hear you felt the property had not improved since your last visit. With the renovations now completed, we replaced all the beds and pillows, furniture, installed new carpet, painted, remodeled the breakfast bar and lobby, and resurfaced the pools. We also installed visual strobe lighting and door bells for our impaired guests. I would... More

Another new Holiday Inn Express, but this one has the biggest and best pool facilities. Besides the swimming pool, there is a large hot tub, a kids wading pool, and a large recreation room. The kids enjoyed this place! The room was also good - spacious and comfortable. There was some sticky substance in the bathroom that the cleaning staff... More

Thanks so much Saskadon for the review. We continue to have guests that believe we are a new hotel however we finished our renovations in Feb. 2015. We are thrilled that it is thought to be a new hotel and we intend on keeping it looking new! Glad to hear the kids enjoyed our pool area and you felt the... More

I tend to favor Holiday Inn Express hotels when I travel on business and this one in St. Cloud is convenient, clean and comfortable with courteous staff and a nice breakfast. I'll keep coming back every time I'm in the area.

This was a clean well-run hotel located right off I-94 on the east side of St. Cloud so about a 5 mile+ drive to anywhere else. Excellent breakfast and a very nice staff. Not much for restaurants or entertainment in the immediate area but close to the college and not far from other local attractions. The double room was spacious,... More

This is a nice modern hotel with good sized room and comfortable beds. The only drawback was the smell of smoke in the room. It's located in a convenient spot if just passing through St. Cloud, but it's away from the center and a better choice of restaurants. I'd stay here if in town just overnight, but choose elsewhere if... More

We stayed in a suite room for one night in June. It was clean and a good size for just the night. The wifi connection was GREAT!

After having issues at another nearby hotel, we Googled "pet friendly" hotels and the other TripAdvisor reviews came up letting me know at a glance that this was a place to try.

This was a convenient location to meet with family to handle a business situation. We enjoyed the variety of the hot items and other items on the breakfast bar.
