Recent guest reviews

My family stayed here on a weekend my son was participating in a competition. The hotel was great, clean and the employees were very nice. The pool was nice and didn't run out of pool towels (which is unusual anymore). The breakfast was also very good. Have a pancake machine my kids loved. All and all, great stay.

The front desk staff was very polite and helpful during check-in. The hotel is clean and updated. The room was clean and comfortable, especially the bathroom. I did not try the breakfast as I had an arranged breakfast meeting, but there is a large breakfast area with lots of options. No complaints here!

This is a great hotel, everything from the friendly staff to the very hot hot tub, clean pool, amazing breakfast and great hospitality!! We will definitely stay here again!! Very easy to get to and find! Highly recommended if visiting the area!!!

We stayed at this hotel while we took our family and kids' friends to ValleyFair. It was new, smelled clean. Had a great pool, good breakfast. We stayed in a larger room that had two double beds and a pull out couch. The room was HUGE! My husband and I had more than enough room for the 4 kids we were traveling with. The kids liked the pool and the hot tub was HOT. In a good way. The staff was attentive and courteous. We will be back.

Nice newer hotel with friendly staff, above average breakfast, clean rooms, free cookies nightly, and nice size pool area. Stayed here for three nights while visiting family and if we find ourselves back in the area visiting we will stay again!

We stayed 2 nights while waiting to get into short term housing for a temporary job. It new, clean, & comfortable. The staff were all very friendly & helpful. I was able to use their printer & they faxed some necessary papers for me. Breakfast was great.

Nice new hotel with great location if you are interested in horseracing. It is within two blocks of the entrance/exit of Canterbury Park. Friendly staff, clean modern rooms, above average breakfast included. Nearby restaurants include Culvers a MC. About 10 minutes from downtown Shakopee.

We had reservations for another place in Eden Prairie, MN but the over booked so when we got there they told they did not have our room or any room! Our Travel club was very helpful and after some time we were headed to the Holiday Inn Express in Shakopee! We were greeted very kindly and welcomed at 11p with open arms! This place is amazing and we are so glad we did not end up at the other place! The breakfast was a full breakfast: pancakes, cereal hot and cold, turkey sausage, bacon, biscuits with meat gravy, fruit, yogurt, breads, rolls, juice (3 kinds), coffee, milk etc! Omelettes one morning! Rooms were very clean with frig and microwave! Indoor pool & sauna! Thank you Holiday Inn Express staff for your welcome and friendliness! We will be back if we are in your area!

Check in went very well! I appreciated saying my name at the counter and Sue pulls up our info right away and BOOM, we are checked in! I've never written a bad review about HIE, but this visit needs to be mentioned...upon arriving to our room, and wiping down everything with my Lysol wipes (which I'm glad I had) I noticed the toilet seat had blood splatters all over it :( We've stayed at this hotel over 6 times (family lives in the area). Now I am nervous about booking here again.

I usually don't stay at HIE since they are pretty average, but this is one of the best I was in a 2 queen suite with plenty of room. They have helpful staff and a good breakfast bar. Room & common areas were clean furniture in good shape, and plenty of lighting in the room and bath. My only suggestions are: need better curtains in room - too much light getting through the opening between the two sides of the curtains, and less carb heavy foods - too many bread items, need more foods with higher protein.
