We stayed here for a wedding over the weekend. Our room was neat and clean. The one thing though is the breakfast area seemed to be very cramped. None of the holiday inns had a cramped breakfast area like this. Pool and fitness room were very nice. The breakfast was delicious, the blueberry muffin was my favorite. It was a...

Between the flashing lights of the airport next door, the illuminated tv sensor, illuminated cable box, illuminated smoke detector...it was like trying to sleep inside a disco. Poor cleaning job in tub and toilet. Noisy walls. Place needs updating.

Hello Jody L, Thank you for choosing the Holiday Inn Express Watertown, WI. I appreciate your candid review. I'm sorry to learn that your stay was not as comfortable as it should have been because of the flashy lights and the tired condition of our hotel. These do not reflect the brand standards that we'd like our guests to experience....

The room was comfortable--not a new place but clean. The staff was helpful when asked. The location was nice. If I ever have to stay in town again, I will ask for a room near the front door. I didn't like being in the back of the property, although it was quiet. There was, however, a strobe light rotating all...

It was a breeze checking in, the room was well appointed and clean, and the breakfast was fantastic! What more does a guy need for a business trip! One drawback...it's a long walk from the front desk to the rooms at the end of the hall...on the positive side, you can park in the back lot once you check in!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel offers a swimming pool, hot tub and sauna. Breakfast room was clean and fully stocked. I was able to relax in the lobby, check the computer and get some laundry done. Easy access to main roads.

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding near by. The hotel was extremely clean. The staff was very friendly except for the lady serving breakfast. She seemed very cranky. The breakfast had many great choices and was worth the price of the overnight stay. The beds were comfortable and everything needed was well stocked. You could hear the hallway...

In town for business I have stayed here countless times. Rooms are great, service professional, great breakfast....although it could be changed up more often in this chain. Close to a few restaurants,etc.

This hotel is just inside of town. Expensive rates for a Holiday Inn Express. Very overpriced for this location. Short staffed, worn out carpeting in room, and in need of a remodel. Didn't stay for breakfast, so I can't comment on that.
