We found the service to be friendly and the breakfast to be about what you would expect. It's kind of nice that they have a "to go" bag for fruit and yogurt to take back to the room. While our room was clean, the property is really starting to show its age - cracked grout in bathroom, scratched wallpaper, mismatched...

We had some family business in this area, so when shopping for a hotel, this was the only name that I recognized. We arrived about 11pm and stayed 3 nights. There was plenty of parking available. The front desk folks were kind and friendly. It was easy to check in. Our room had a kingsize bed and the room was...

So proud of my hometown hotel. I was home to attend a funeral. The staff were professional and very kind. Softest pool towels ever. Quiet room. Awesome pillows. Fantastic breakfast. Room smelled clean and fresh. Watertown is great and having a nice place to stay makes it even better.

stayed at this hotel for a wedding reception. The beds were great and the bedding was good. The room smelled like smoke, the carpeting is aged and the ceramic floor near the bathroom sink was sticky!!!! I usually like staying at Holiday Inn Express but this would not be my choice in the future. The room rate was very high...

Its an older hotel but in good condition, just kind of dated, long dark hallways, old carpet, etc. It is clean though and fairly quiet (uncaring parents letting their rowdy kids run up and down the long hallway at 10pm was not the hotels fault). There is fast food and shopping nearby. Did not use the pool/hot tub/exercise area but...

I was recently in Watertown for business and we were put up at the holiday inn express. So many positives to note here: 1. Cathy, the attendant at the front desk upon my arrival was witty, kinda and extremely helpful 2. Tuesdays, free beer (spotted cow is a must!), wine and appetizers 3. Fairly priced 4. Cathy, again, when I...

Back to Watertown for business after 2 years. .. Nice to return to the welcoming and pleasant HI Express. Clean rooms and your usual Holiday Inn features. Nice warm breakfast of course. ... And the Bonus Tuesday evening manager's happy hour(s) is always nice to enjoy some Wisconsin brews and snacks. Until next time. ....

I recently stayed here for 3 months while working in the area and enjoyed my time while I was here. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the pool and whirlpool and sauna and the exercise room. The daily breakfast was also a nice treat. I also used the computer in the lobby area on occasion. The freshly baked...

Clean room and common areas with nice cool air conditioning. Like a breath of fresh compared to the Super 8 across the street (which we initially had reservations). Nice pool and hot tub. Breakfast was good.

The room was average clean. I travel for work and use the iron and ironing boards regularly in hotels. This is not the worst setup I have seen but close. The iron was filthy underneath and I had to figure out a way to clean it. The pad on the very old ironing board was almost a rag. It took...
