Holiday Inn Express Valparaiso

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff were extremely pleasant and our room was perfect. I will be staying here again on my next trip to Valparaiso.

The Holiday Inn Express in Valparaiso was very nice, and the staff was excellent. They were able to get me a super early check-in, which was greatly appreciated. I was not, however, able to take advantage of many of the amenities, as I basically slept there, and that was it.

I know... first world problems right? While it is true that the Wi-Fi didn't reach the top floor, the hotel itself was great! Clean rooms...pillows you are tempted to steal...keurig in your room...great free breakfast...great staff.

While driving to an event from Minnesota to Ohio, we needed a place to stop at from our 13 hour drive. I was able to make the reservation from my phone while still traveling. Staff was very friendly, pool area was clean, beds and room comfortable. Excellent breakfast in the more. We would stay there again.

booked this rooom for my friend and they are happy to stay!

Great stay for low price. Clean. Well located by main strip for food access. My son and felt safe and had a fun time

An average hotel nothing wrong with it but nothing special or out of the ordinary. A bit expensive.

This is the third time that our family has stayed at this hotel. It has a very nice pool and a free breakfast (both things that we consider a must have when traveling with children). When we first arrived we were greeted warmly and even though we were 1/2 hr early on a holiday weekend we were still allowed to check in. The room smelled very strongly of air freshener, but we knew that it had just been clean and it looked good. The only downside that we experienced was at breakfast. The milk that we got to drink (in the small containers) was soured. It may have been sitting out at one point, but everything else was great. Even with the milk being gross, we will still stay at this hotel the next time we are in the area.

The hotel is located in a perfect area close to shopping, resturants and other areas of interest. It was clean and staff were helpful and friendly!

Hotel was hard to find. Minimal signage. Front office staff was curteous and helpful. However, walking to room, floor felt like it was going to give way in places. Beds were uncomfortable. AC did not work. Breakfast was good. Picked it based on reviews. Generally disappointed.

Hotel was clean, modern and quiet. Great value for the price!

Hotel was wonderful. Beds were wonderful and the pool area was very nice. Staff was some of the most inviting I have experienced recently. Breakfast in the morning was great as far as hotel breakfast goes.

This is a pretty standard Holiday Inn Express. I was in Valpo visiting my son, a grad student at Valpo U. The most disconcerting moment was when we were entering the hotel to check-in: a mouse ran out the door! The room was nice. Some of the pillows on the bed were a little lumpy and probably need to be replaced. The breakfast was good and was fresh. Overall, the hotel was nice.

I called ahead to say we would be arriving late and the staff said we'll be here and is there anything we can do for you. We did get turned around with our driving directions because South was not on the address. The breakfast was good and well stocked.

The staff were friendly and it was a nice stay. The hotel's location can be slightly deceiving if one is using a GPS to find the way.
