Had a a couple good nights at the hotel on our 20th anniversary. Room was clean and well maintained. We did a fishing charter and it was a easy walk to the dock from the hotel. Then we went out for dinner down the street later that night. Overall a nice and convenient place to saty.

The staff is always friendly upon check in. Being a status member, I always look to upgrade to the lake view rooms. Soothing sounds of water at night is the best way to fall asleep while on the road! This is a moderately priced clean hotel in the heat of Port Washington. Everything is within a few minute walk. Parking... More

If you want to visit Port Washington, this is an excellent place to stay. Request a waterview room. I love the location. Once you park your car, you don't need to use it again till your visit is done. Everything is walking distance from marina, restaurants, shopping. The staff was wonderful. There was a slight problem when we first checked... More

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... More

Location, location, location! If not for location this hotel would have gotten one star. Updating is needed to make this a go to hotel! Bath instead of shower as well as dated and recaulking needed! 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!... More

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... More

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... More
