I have felt that I can rely on the Holiday Inn brand name the past few years as being pretty consistent in regards to quality and cleanliness. However, this past weekend I was disappointed. The Marquette Holiday Inn sits on a busy highway in Marquette and is well located for business or personal travel needs. After checking in we parked near the entrance door that the front desk staff directed us to and proceeded to carry in our luggage for a two day stay. Immediately we noticed stained and dirty carpeting near the entrance door and leading up to the elevator. The carpeting in the elavator was filthy and so was the area around it when we got off at our floor. The room itself was fairly clean but I would call it average at best. What we noticed later that evening when going to bed was that the large center window was not closed completely and despite several attempts it would not seal entirely. With a busy highway right outside, the traffic noise continued through the night. As someone who does quite a bit of home repair, I could see that the window would no longer seal and due to it's age would probably never be a tight fit again. While I was not expecting a 4 star hotel setting, I was expecting an updated and clean hotel experience. I had read that the parent company of Holiday Inn was putting more and more pressure on the franchise's that need updating but obviously that is not the case in Marquette, Michigan. This is not a terrible place to stay but certainly not up to Holiday Inn standards elsewhere.
