I have stayed here in the past with no problems. This time we were awakened by an electric room heater. It let loose and choked us out at 6 am in the morning. The stink was horrendous. No refund or break on the price of the room. We were not ready for this.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Only downfall would be there are no refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms. This would have been very helpful traveling with little ones.

Was great for a weekend stay. Fantastic location and room. Would return in a heartbeat.

Hotel had a wonderfully comfortable bed, and I was wishing I had more time to enjoy more of what I call the 'delicious sleep' that the bed provided. Room was spacious and had all the necessary amenities. The only problem was that the adhesive for the bathroom tiles had not been properly or liberally applied, and when I walked on several of the tiles, they 'rocked' back and forth. Had i not arrived so late, i might have asked for another room. i called the reception's attention to that the next morning. She offered a new room, but it was nearly check-out time. Instead we settled on a complimentary breakfast. I did suggest that they have the tiles replaced or reglued. Except for the noisy and loose tiles, the room and my stay were fine.

We requested a King size bed and when we arrived, they had no king sizes just 2 double beds. The employee was not very accomodating. Although there were hardly any cars in the parking lot on a Thursday night, we found it odd that they were sold out of king size beds. The room looked and smelled old, and for $124 plus tax a night, it was a rip off. Stay somewhere else.

Considering that the city isn't any great, the hotel helps you facing the whole place reality and the lack of stuff to do... Very good hotel!

We had a very nice stay and very great service. I made a huge mistake organizing my weekend there and they worked with me to fix it. loved the food, pool, spa, and room. nice tv's comfortable beds. nice bathrooms, and a very nice bar again.... nothing to complain about. except there wasnt a ice machine on my floor. but that didnt bother me.

My daughter and I were in Fort Wayne to attend the Vera Bradley Outlet Sale. From the moment we checked in, until checking out the following day, we were met with courtesy and helpfulness. When checking in, we were even provided with information about the sale itself, giving us a heads up on items we were most interested in. We were very pleased with our room -- the bed was unbelievably comfortable and the walk-in shower was wonderful. An added bonus: the vintage photos throughout the hotel! We are already planning to return for next year's sale and will definitely reserve a room at this Holiday Inn! Thank you for a wonderful experience!

We were celebrating our 8th year married and they upgrade our room without us even asking! It was a fantastic night away from the kids!! Clean/comfortable and quite!!
