This is not an Express location. It's a refurbished Convention Center style building. Rooms are small but adequate and my King room included a refridgerator, not listed under amenities. Has room service and full restaraunt on site.
Nicely updated with good linens and optional pillow menu-nice touch. Great location off I80 and a good value for the money.

Holiday Inn Joliet is comfortable and clean. The staff is very welcoming and down to earth.

Beds are comfortable. An array of pillows to choose from and if the kind you want isn't in the room, they'll bring you the kind you need.

Pool is really nice. They just filled it the day we arrived and it was already warm enough to get into since it's a heated pool.

Bathrooms are very clean. Decor is updated.

The only negative I can give is that the hotel resturant isn't open for lunch. So either eat the breakfast buffett late and grab an early dinner or go out for lunch. There are several eating establishments in the area.

Was in town for the Indy Car Series Race at the Chicagoland Motor Speedway and it had been awhile since I stayed at an HI so we choose this one. The hotel needs to make their sign taller and more visable for travelers not exiting off the freeway. We was able to check in ealier than the normal 3pm check in time. Although it was rather busy and took about 10mins to get to the desk!
There's nothing about the outside of the hotel to brag about, the paking lot is huge and is well lit. The elevators are small and slow, we could've beat the elevator to the 3rd floor using the stairs.
I was delighted upon entering our room to find it fresh and clean smelling, the linens had no stains and looked new. The bathroom was very super clean! and offered quality soaps, shampoos and body lotions.
Our bed was awsome! We slept like babies, felt like a very high end matress with lots of cushion and soft sheets/blankets. The rooms furnishings was up to date although the TV was your basic 27' tube type nested in an entertainment center the TV offered pay-per movies of all types ranging from $12.99 - &14.99. Checkout can be done via TV also.
We thought the prices for room service was high even for a basic continental breakfast at &4.95 and the Farmer plate at &6.95, many other choices are offered as well as a childrens menu. Room service is subject to a 20% gratuity and $2 delvery fee! Overall this is a very nice place and will stay again.
