“Standard new motel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2011

The new Holiday Express Inn is convenient for a night, but its location at the motorway is not the best choice for vacation. The staff and Manager are very helpful, free wifi, although a bit complex to get. Has a good breakfast included, free parking (outside). You need a car obviously to move around. Luzern, Zürich and Bern are close to the place. Price something too high, but this is Switzerland...

Simple Holiday Inn Express and one of my more memorable one. A nice restaurant outside of the hotel greeted us the morning we arrived by car. The reception was simple but efficient; rooms were HI Express standards and nothing to shout about, in fact we found it amusing that there was no AC in the room! But never a problem thanks to the excellent weather all year round in Lucern!

What we really liked about this property;s location is how it is situated behind a leisure stretch of barns and strawberry farms. The moment we opened the windows, we were in full view of a ranch and all the fresh air that greets us. I took a stroll one morning for about 3 miles behind the hotel and took some awesome pictures of what nature has to offer!

I would love to come back for just a night's stay for the whole country experience.

Stayed here for one night as part of a Switzerland vacation. For a night, it was perfect for our needs but if I was staying in the Lucerne area longer then I would book a hotel in the centre of Lucerne itself. As others have noted, this is a hotel to use a) if you have a car and b) know that you will not be near the center of Lucerne and there is no train or public transport to get into town – you’d need to arrange a taxi.
It is located right off the highway in a rest area that has a gas station, Co-op Express and Co-op restaurant (so you can get food and a meal if you arrive during their open hours), but is a good 15 minutes or so drive from Lucerne centre on the motorway. It’s quiet and you don’t hear any motorway noise, at least if you face the side with the farm. The rooms are small and average, a step below the U.S. Holiday Inn Express properties. There is no A/C, but windows open partially and they do provide fans.
Staff were friendly, there is a free car park, and they have free wi-fi too. Breakfast is average and what you’d expect for a continental at a chain like this.
Only downside is when we visited (July 2011), there was a distinctive musty smell in both the corridors and particularly in the room. It could be because there had been a stretch of humid and rainy days, but the smell was pronounced. We opened the windows and put the fan on high and it worked fine.

I booked this on my Priority Club points, but looking at the cost of rooms it seems to be a much cheaper option than hotels in the center of the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the farm - quieter

On our way to Italy we spent one night at this hotel and we were satisfied with our choice. It was close to highway and only 15 mins drive from Luzern so we had enough time to walk and get to know the old city as well. The hotel parking is free. Parking in a garage in Luzern is a bit expensive.
The hotel design (both - exterior and interior) is nothing special but we didn't mind that at all. The nature was beautifull. The staff was very polite and helpfull, made us feel welcome and explained how to get to Luzern and where to park. Checking in and out was easy and quick.
The room and bathroom were clean, as well as the towells and bed linen. Our children complained about the pillows - too firm for them. The room was a bit smaller for a family of four, but we managed to "fit in" for one night.
The internet connection was good and free of charge.

Rooms basic, small and uncomfortable bed but clean. As usual Holiday Inn offers a pillow menu service but very few hotels in the group seem to stock the feather pillows which is annoying. Luckily, weather was temperate rather than hot as there is no air conditioning in the rooms, only a desk fan!

Good food to be found next door in the services restaurant which is handy.
