Just stayed one night after a golf outing. Hotel and rooms were clean. Check in was smooth. Tony did a great job. The only complaint I have is that the mattress must have been very old. I had a better mattress in Afghanistan.....When I sat on the bed I went almost to the floor and it was uncomfortably weak and... More

The rooms are updated and very comfortable. No odd smells or loud people. The gentlemen at the front desk was very good and accommodating. He reviewed everything and even asked if I had a floor preference. When I left for dinner and came back he acknowledge me each time. I would stay here again if in the area.

Very nice and updated Holiday Inn; friendly service with a nice room. Good location in Algonquin and one of the nicest HIs I have stayed in, but still a Holiday Inn, so that's why I'm only at four stars.

Very Clean, up to date rooms--had exhaust in bathroom, not found in most hotels/motels, which I appreciate for steam after a shower.Friendly front desk; noisy crowd most of night next to one of our rooms. We did not report to front desk, but should have. Very nice breakfast with accommodating help staffing the area.Nice pool area.

I am staying here right now, It really smells bad in the rooms, like someone put cologne on mold, the bed is ok but the smell is horrid, my nephew is in a suite on the 3rd floor and that room smells like smoke although it says no smoking in the hotel.

Our apologies for the smell in your room. As soon as you spoke to me about this, we dealt with it. While housekeeping couldn't smell anything, the room was given extra care during your housekeeping service.

We had a wedding to go to and we had plenty of room for the 5 of us!! Great breakfast the two mornings we were here. Pool and hot tub were nice and we used the fitness room. It wasn't loud or too full to feel uncomfortable or cramped. Good location! Close to shopping and food! Nice place!
