Off the beaten path

Posted Jul 10, 2017
Pros: Clean, excellent staff.
Cons: Housekeeping service on Saturday morning seemed impatient to finish up and leave. We needed to stay until 11:00 a.m. and that seemed to be a problem.
Location: Lakeside Mall and surrounding stores -- that's about it. Right near the M53 expressway which takes you to Stony Creek metropark. Also M59 heads west.
This hotel isn't in a touristy location, so it's ideal for a quiet family stay. Most guests we found to be business travelers, at least during the week. On Friday night a busload of kids came and stayed in the lobby until past midnight. Because we were on the first floor we could hear them. Half of the first floor and the entire second floor were closed for renovation. This wasn't a major problem although I would have liked to know that in advance. We arrived very late our first night (around 2:30 a.m.) and wanted to sleep in the next morning. However, the construction crew began using their power equipment at 7:30 the next morning so our leisurely sleep wasn't too peaceful.

Dear Anthony, Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about your visit with us at the Holiday Inn Express Utica MI. I am sorry that our Housekeeping stay made you feel rushed. I will meet with them to make sure that they understand that our guests have every right to stay until the 11:00am check out time. And to not attempt to ask any guests to leave earlier then that. I hope that you will consider staying with us again, the next time your travels bring your to our area. T.Keller/General Manager

Nice place. Housekeeping threw away my loofah and complained about being the only one working. Other than that I would stay again!

It was a Merry Christmas

The room was nice and spotless. The pool could have been just a tad warmer but it was a nice saltwater pool. It was quiet, convenient and we had a great time.

Good location

Posted Nov 22, 2016 on Hotels
We stayed over for two nights. Some how our room got missed for house cleaning on the second day. We had overflowing garbage and no towels or Kleenex. Our room keys didn't work when we returned from our shopping trip. The woman at the front desk was busy in the back office, so I had to yell to get her attention. Her excuse was that she was there by herself, not my problem. The two ladies at the desk when we checked out where very apologetic and asked if I would like to speak with the manager. I told them to pass on my concerns.

This is a very nice hotel. We had a great experience at check in. The breakfast was great. The beds were a little uncomfortable and the A/C was a little loud. The shower was great with lots of water and nice spray.

Comfortable Beds

Posted Aug 21, 2016 on Hotels
The beds are comfortable. The food options were minimal, as there is no room service and the vending machines have cob webs and no real options. Lots of restaurants nearby though. Room key got turned off a day early and had to wait to get it to work again.

The rooms were over-priced for what they were. Acceptable quality accommodations, but lack lustre.
