Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Lima

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Recently stopped at this moderately priced hotel while in transit moving from Michigan to Georgia. Customer service and front desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating as we were also traveling with our parrot. The additional pet fee is $40. Rooms are well appointed and very clean. Since we arrived late and were quite exhausted we decided to have dinner at the restaurant on site. It was surprisingly very good and well priced with exceptionally good service. There is, however, a $9 charge for the breakfast buffet. Not sure I will be in Lima OH again, but if the need arises, I would definitely stay here again!

The staff on front reception were incredibly friendly and welcoming. Room was clean and comfortable. The location was close to the interstate and shopping. Nothing negative to say about his hotel. Thanks for the good night's sleep!

Clean but customer service needs work. Housekeepers were outside our room talking very loud. One was on the phone with a kid who was super loud. Front desk help had no clue what they were doing and finally asked for help. Not once did they ask how my stay was.

Held a meeting for a group of people in one of their conference rooms. The buffet food was really very good. Good selection. Our server Brenda was excellent and extremely helpful. Will definitely do this again.

Hotel seems to fairly new or remodeled. Meeting rooms are spacious and have good AV. Lunch catered buy hotel was fairly good, made fresh. Nice quiet bar to relax in with complimentary beverage during Happy Hour.

Beds were comfortable, but the headboard was coming apart and there was mold on the soap dish in the shower... Both are items that are in plain sight and should have already been addressed.... not sure if I will stay here again...

Nice Hotel. I registered by calling to book a king room with the big tub. My husband had knee replacement and is not able to get in and out of a regular tub. We were both looking forward to a nice hot soak after being on the road all day and walking through a few museums. We were both disappointed to be given a room without the tub and for me, only a shower. This hotel has no hot tub... which would have at least been an alternative choice for relaxing our sore muscles and arthritis. I know the room I request is not guaranteed. Maybe I need to find a hotel that will guarantee my requested room will be mine upon arrival. While breakfast was OK, nothing to rave about other than it was convenient on site, no waiting, and paid for with our room. The suite was nice and big (sleeps 4 if needed), bed was very comfy, although the temperature fluctuated from too warm to just chilly (heat control in room), small kitchenette is nice but tried to make hot in the morning in the new coffee machine - tasted awful! (Styrofoam cups in the micro is a health hazard). I asked if I would get a receipt after checking in and was told I would get it in the morning when I check out. When I checked out in the morning, I was told it was emailed. I would have liked to have a paper receipt before I left the hotel. My email account is not an account linked to my phone. Overall a nice hotel and is smoke free. While it did not meet all of my needs, what hotel does? I would probably stay here again if I visit Ohio, unless I want a hot tub to soak in.

On my way back from Nashville, I again stayed at one of my favourite places--the Holiday Inn in Lima Ohio. They are still "tops" for me. The place is large-has easy access to I75Hwy-clean large rooms--easy check-in and out and great staff.

Great value,friendly staff, food service a little slow I have been 3 times in last few weeks and enjoy, especially upgrades as spire member. Close to other places and just off interstate. Quite no road noise

Upon arrival, I realized that I did not have my wallet; however, because I had prepaid, all that I had to do was show an ID (business card) to check in. That done, I drove back to Columbus to get my wallet. The staff was pleasant, knowledgable, and helpful. The room was quiet and clean with a giant bed, clean bathroom, iron and ironing board, refrigerator, microwave, and WiFi. I slept very well. Breakfast was very nice. Hallway carpet was, well… different. To access the motel from the street, turn left and go straight until you see the sign that prompts a second left turn.
