Port Washington Wi. is an old fishing port. and the character of the city still prevails. The Holiday inn is located directly on the water, with many sights to see, early morning sunrise or late day sunset, it's all magical. The local folks are very nice. Another Wisconsin hidden treasure.

We have stayed at this Holiday Inn several times. Though it does need some "updating" the location surpasses all other choices. I have stayed there mainly with my husband but also did stay with a friend for a "girls weekend" this past summer. The location for shopping (especially Duluth Trading) restaurants and bars can not be beat. This past weekend...

Microwave and mini frig from 80's. KCup coffee maker but no mugs only styrofoam which can't be microwaved! Outlets difficult to locate and to utilize!...

My husband and I needed a break from home and work. We were able to book a suite at the holiday inn. The room was clean and comfortable. It had a nice sitting area that overlooked the harbor and the sleeping area looked out to the lake! The room also had a microwave,sink and fridge. It was close to shops...

This hotel is located on the harbor at a beautiful historic city on Lake Michigan. That is all I can say nice about it!! Everything looks like it has been around since the 60's. Old, dirty, cheap. The worst was the fact that the plumbing did not work in either of the two rooms they tried to give us. Everything...

I booked this hotel as an anniversary getaway for my wife and me. The location is unbelievably gorgeous, and the staff was pretty friendly. The pool area was a little dated, but otherwise nice, and looks like it was as gem in its day. Got a spa room upstairs and it was very clean. Plenty of restaurants around within walking...

Walking distance to shops and restaurants. We travel a lot and I have to say the beds were the most comfortable beds ever. Friendly staff and for an older hotel very well kept up. Food was decent. We would definitely go back.

My wife and I stayed here for a wedding about 15 minutes away. The hotel is very nice - clean, in great condition, helpful staff, and very clean, comfortable rooms. The hotel is easy to find, with two parking lots that seemed to have plenty of room, even though we returned to the hotel well after midnight. It has a...
