On Wednesday, May 21, 2019 I made a reservation at the Holiday Inn at 8439 NE Columbia Blvd. near the airport in Portland, OR. The reservation is for June 5th. The number is R1509214728. I did not realize that I was making it through a 3rd party called Res Desk. I thought it was the Holiday Inn. I inquired of the young man who handled the reservation if it was a reservation that could be cancelled if need be, as that has always been the way I have handled reservations before. He said that this was not the case with this one. I was hesitant to book, as one never knows if something might happen prior to the time of the reservation. He was quite brisk and quickly pursued obtaining the booking and had it in my in box on e-mail practically before I could even think clearly. He was very adept at his job. It was very unsettling to me being told I could not cancel and get my money back if something came up to preclude me making my trip. Generally there is no need to cancel, but it so happened that within the hour, a family matter transpired that will in fact keep us being able to use the room. The room was $212, and that is a lot of money for us to lose. I tried diligently to get some satisfactory closure on this matter by speaking with several people. Irina, the manager of the hotel we were booked at was very nice, but very busy. I spoke with her 3x, only to be put on hold repeatedly with no closure. At one point, I inadvertently got the manager at the Holiday Inn Express near the same location, and he said since this had all transpired within an hour, he would try and help me if he could, but then he realized I was at a different hotel. I am hoping you can help me resolve this in a satisfactory manner.
Thank you. - Lynn Hopson
Early in April 2019 I booked a room through Med-Stay for a surgical procedure Starting May 9th to May 17. the hotel is Holiday Inn Express
6119 Farrington Road Chapel Hill NC 27517. Due to complications The Doctor had to cancel the surgery. I called the Hotel on the 8th or 9th of April to cancel the reservation. The person I talked to cancelled the reservation, and when I asked for a confirmation number she said that she had cancelled the reservation and could not provide me a confirmation number. I asked for her name and she said it was "CiCi". I said okay and hung up. On June 14th I noticed there was a charge on my credit card of $190.68 from the hotel. When I called the Hotel and inquired about the charge I was told that because it was Graduation weekend at UNC they would have to charge me for two nights at the hotel. When I cancelled the reservation I was never told about this policy. there is no notation on my reservation sheet about special event cancelation. When I made the reservation through MED-STAY I was assured that cancelation was possible as long as I notified the hotel by the 9th of April. I think I am due a refund of $190.68, because I was not informed of the cancelation policy for special events. I am a Gold Elite member 108 109 331.
Thank you, David L. Griffith
Charged my credit card for making a reservation $67.65 I think the is a little extreme. The person I spoke with indicated that the charge was the room rate no indication there was a charge for making the reservation. I would like to be reimbursed for this extra amount.
I called to book a group reservation for 30 rooms for May 22 - 24, 2020. Spoke to a Jazzmin several times. She put me through to the Group Desk. The group Desk told me they could not accommodate me because they had to take their outside guest first. What the hell are we, chop liver. We are all ouside guest. Also when I asked some questions regarding the room tax amount, they did not even know this. I am contacting the better business bureau regarding this refusal to make reservation.
I stayed in the Holiday Inn in Blythewood, SC, the hotel there will not return my incidental fee, they said they have but my bank statement says they haven’t I called my bank and they said get a statement from them saying that it has been released and they will refund my money, well the hotel has made ever excuse in the world not to do that. I am starting think they are trying to keep my money. Very service, extremely disappointed.
Had to be moved to a different room d/t live bugs in the bed.. in addition long dark hairs on bathroom floor on arrival to the second room.. other than getting moved to a second room .. no compensation regarding the stay.. I have stayed at many holiday inn (both leisure & business) .. never experienced any thing like this.. so dissatisfied..
This hotel has the worst customer service OMG, I had a Plastic Surgery conference in Boston, South Bay my conference was ruin cause of their bad staff, they are not profesional at all, I would never recommend this hotel or do any of my conferences, sorry but it was bad no one called to apologize for the inconvenience or refunded any money back they charged 1000 per night ridiculous not considering I was doing an event there already.
I arrived to check in at Holiday Inn College Park, MD at around 4pm and didn't get a room until 9pm. They didn't have the rooms clean and they were short of staff. It was a disaster. The group that I traveled with, Soul Nation, had to help the employees of Holiday Inn clean the guest rooms. With that being said, I missed the dinner and the comedy show. I feel that I should be compensated for this mishap.
On April 27,28 , and 29 th we had our Annual State Convention At Corpus Christy Texas. Well I And another Guest Had our reservation with our confirmation number and upon arriving at the Motel I go to find out that we only had reservations for just one night and we had to go to another Holiday Inn with No Transportation To our Convention. I have always been at our convention and Never had this take place before. I missed part of our meetings as a Result. And Yes The Second motel had not been cleaned and there were soiled Bath Towels And Toe Nails Clippings On The carpet. Completely the room had not been serviced. And then They Didn’t Give Us The rate promised to the Knights Of Columbus. And Yes We Were Expecting That Rate as Promised. If Holiday Inn Can’t Deliver , I Don’t Think That I’ll Ever Stay At Another One Again !!!
I never complain and this is completely out of character to me. Out of all the hotels I have stayed at in my life this was by far the worse experience I have ever had in 43 years. I often choose Holliday Inn because until yesterday I saw it as a quality hotel. The staff especially desk clerk Lexi treated me like I was nothing more than a huge bother. I didn’t not feel like my business was appreciated or welcome in any way and a very huge special day in my life was brought down by the treatment I received. Me aside I even witnessed her treat my parents who are in their 70s with this same attitude and other family members also staying during this same night told me they were not impressed. I had a $118 reservation that was not honored and what made it worse I was charged $190 not Budgeting that for my stay and was yelled at with Lexi staring they were busy this weekend and now that’s my price even though I had a month plus old reservation. Never experienced this type of service from a holiday Inn or anything even close and will probably never go back again unless someone actually cares enough to make things right.
Not a complaint, but asking that the new Chico Holiday Inn Express people mow the grass on their property facing Springfield Dr. It looks soooo messy and attracts trash, homeless and makes area look uncared for, thus, so will the motel be that. PLEASE, PLEASE MOW THE GRASS NOW! Thank you.
I recently book a room at the Holiday Inn Express in Pella, Iowa for the Tulip Time Festival.
The fee for the room was ridiculously inflated, due to the festival, but I justified the expense due to the fact there was a pool, hot tub, and a hot breakfast served complimentary. When we arrived, the staff was less that courteous and informed us the pool was out of order. Considering the fees mandated to stay that weekend, one would assume that because we were not getting what we paid for, a discount would have been applied. That was not the case. When I asked, I was met with unprofessionalism and extreme defensiveness. Eventually a manager stepped out from the back and applied a $30 discount...however, that alone is unacceptable. We were met with further disappointment the following morning when we learned from other guests, that they had not informed everyone at check-in that the pool was out of order. Further disappointment again, after we had returned from a long day at the festival to find housekeeping failed to visit our room. We also asked to check out early because of the lack of follow through in service we expected when booking online, and were again met with unprofessionalism and denied that option. Had we known the pool was out, we would have never booked in the first place. Had we known the poor service and unprofessionalism we would have experienced, we would have never came to Pella in the first place.
Holiday Inn should be ashamed of themselves for the service provided, the ridiculous inflated prices, and the experiences received during our stay there. Even the lowest rated hotels are able to provide the very basics. You can guarantee we'll be sharing our review of the Pella, Iowa Location to anyone that will listen, including publicly posting our experience on Tulip Time Festival pages. Families deserve better than what was provided.
I stayed at Holiday Inn Express (Lenwood Drive, Barstow, CA) on 4/14 - 5/3/2019. I was planning to come back, so I made a reservation for 5/5 - 5/31. I checked out on 5/3 at around 6 AM and asked the Manager on Duty if I can leave my luggage in the hotel, since I'm coming back anyway in a couple of days. She declined to take it, citing the hotel does not want to be responsible for storing the luggage for any guest. I was flabbergasted. I've been travelling a lot - - - Diamond member at Hilton and Elite member at Marriott - - - and this was the first time that I ever heard of such policy. Needless to say, I cancelled my reservation and booked at a nearby hotel who agreed to stow my luggage.
I understand that this branch in Lenwood has a high occupancy rate. But is it a valid reason to cut down on customer service, especially to those who are coming back and have already made the reservation?
1. Guest Laundry have only 4 machines, yet 3 of them were out of service during the duration of my stay.
2. Men's restroom on the 1st floor reeks with urine smell
3. Room 338 bathroom floor tiles are cracked
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express at 2720 N. Glenstone Ave. in Springfield, MO, in room 527, on Thursday night, May 2nd. The condition of our room was unacceptable, and should not have been in the rental rotation. The bathtub coating was peeling, and a poor attempt had been made to repair it. We did NOT want to take a shower in the tub. It was disgusting. Our television in the room was also not working properly. I called the front desk, and a maintenance man promptly came to our room. He also could not get the remote to work, and went and got us a new remote, with new batteries. It still didn’t work, and he decided that the television was just very old, and needed to be replaced. The front desk offered to move us, but after a 9 1/2 hour day on the road, we were too tired to move all our bags, and just stayed. The front desk sent up free breakfast buffet tickets, but we needed to get an early start on another nine hour day, so we did not use them.
I feel that our room was in such poor condition, that half of our bill should be refunded. We had been staying at the La Quintas on our three day trips to and from Arizona for eight years. We decided to try another hotel that was a bit more “upscale”, and we were VERY disappointed in the quality of our stay. We certainly will reconsider staying at a Holiday Inn Express again.
I made a reservation with Holiday Inn Express, Las Cruces, NM...January 24, 2019.
I requested a top floor away from the elevator. We were given a room on the 3rd floor, when i questioned the gentleman, he said I must not have
contacted them personally. I checked my phone and yes I had called 575-527-9947 back in January. Then he said oh well you no a room
request can never be guaranteed.
If that is a true statement of Holiday Inn, why would I ever bother, and in the past why has there never been a problem..
This Guy, no longer a Gentleman, was a Takky Takky rude Man.
I will continue to stay at Holiday Inn when I travel, but everyone dealing with this guy should be made aware of his BS.
On 4/19/19 we registered at the Holiday Inn Express Shelbyville/Indianapolis, 38 W. Rampart St., Shelbyville, IN 48176. At 4 am the hotel lost power and there core no heat with the temperature outside at 39 degrees. My husbaNd requires a Medical machine which we could not use. We tried to sleep and ended up getting up around 7am and found no hot water and of course no breakfast. Now I realize that the power outage was not the fault of the hotel, but My husband was in the lobby right after the electric went off and the owner arrived and when he found out it was not the hotels issue he stated he was glad because he wouldn’t have to reimburse any guest. Now I did not receive what was paid for and I at least expected a partial reimbursement and did not appreciate attitude for something that wasn’t my fault either. Did not even receive any kind of apology, this was not a good business practice and next time I may have to look for a Marriott and it’s a shame cause we have stayed at that hotel several times. You need to trai. Your franchises better in public relations.
Someone tired to steal our truck 2010 Cadillac Escalade so we then had to have it towed to Cadillac to take it out of anti theft system lock. Well we had to stay here another night we are now staying here with no power power went out and not only that my key never works so I had to go downstairs to the front desk and give us a new key every time I came to my room!! I am very unhappy sacred with no power this is HORRIBLE!!!!
My wife had her first assessment for lung surgery at Barnes Jewish Hospital.
After checking in, we returned to the front desk for our "$10 parking permit". Charging a guest for parking is outrageous when they are there for medical treatment. My wife who is on oxygen asked Kevin (mgr) about places to eat as we were not familiar with the area. He told her he did not recommend places but preferred to let guests discover on their own. He told her to go left or right at the corner (Euclid). She stated since she required oxygen she was not able to walk around looking and asked him if we wanted Italian, would that be left or right? With other customers present, he continued looking for something behind the desk. Then, turned his head and asked her if she wanted him to spell it out for her! We were both speechless! Even the desk clerk was taken aback. Also, the room was poorly designed with no place to open our luggage, a corner sink with no counter space, bath towels were kept outside the bathroom and the carpeting was stained. It was not a relaxing stay for someone seeking medical care. It is promoted as being close and convenient to the hospital. It should be more accommodating to guests.

The Holiday Inn at the following address. 6921 South Lindbergh Boulevard. St Louis Mo 63125....We have stayed in this particular hotel 2 times, and both times have been awakened by house keeping before 8am. The people here are rude as hell. With the exception of the front desk lady named April. The swimming pool is cold as hell for being a indoor pool. The hot tub feels nice but all the jets are on the seat so they are going up your butt instead of on your back.
I am upset because when we book are hotel . They didn’t let us know about the pool Not working ,My kids was looking forward going swimming . They should put that on the website . I felt like I was cheated
I called the Holiday inn Express in Pennsylvania to book two rooms which they said breakfast was Included However if I used my Military Discount I was not entitled to the breakfast. I was and am appalled at the way you treat our veterans and plan to let everyone know how your company treats our veterans
April 16, I called the Holiday Inn in Somerville Mass, 02143. 617-628-1000! I was confirming a event reservation for Jehovah's Witnesses on April 19, 2019! Front desk person name Amy answered! She asked me to repeat what I told her on function Friday 19? She raise her voice belligerently! She hung up! (I called back a young man answered I mentioned his coworker hung up on me told him reason of calling back he couldn't find any info) I called the Kingdom Hall! I was told the Memorial Jesus Death is at that location! I called back I got Amy! She said "you suppose to be a Jehovah's Witness you are rude!" I never said I was one of Jehovah's Witnesses! But I did encourage her attend the Memorial not accuse anyone anymore! Jesus did gave his life up for "rude" people my life forever as I am studying Bible try not to be rude! I am not perfect! Jesus provided pay my debt with his life to God for everones guilty crimes! That behavior is not acceptable to Holiday Inn! I hope she makes adjustments!

I stayed at the Holiday Inn St. Louis/FAIRVIEW Heights 313 Salem Place FAIRVIEW Heights IL 62208.
I arrived on 4/12/19 (MY Birthday) after 11pm when we got to the room it was very cold in the room we tried to adjust the temperature it didn't move. The vents was blowing cool air still. Let the front desk know the issue.
On Saturday 4/13/19 I left room early didn't get back until after 5 stopped at the front spoke with the young man at the front desk to let them know the it was still cold in the room and that the remote didn't work. He was very nice and came back up to the room to see if he fix it. And he wasn't able fix the issue. Another you man came up I think his name was Chad. He also tried to fix it seem to be blowing out warm air. I left the to go to dinner and another event. Got back to the room after 12am and it was blowing cold air again and you couldn't adjust the temperature it was stuck it wouldn't move at all. I was very disappointed with this stay we also had kids running back and forth in the hallway. I checked out on 4/14/19 early before 7am I also let the person Dale at the front desk know the the room was still cold.

On March 16th 2019 I made a attempt to check into the holiday inn & suites address 1600 East First Street Santa Ana, Ca 92701..I drove down from Stockton Ca which was about a 6hr drive I made the reservation for my daughters 13th birthday weekend we were going to Disneyland/California adventure upon arriving to the hotel we were a few hours early although I knew a room may not be available I still checked with the front desk which the very nice lady at the desk told me to check back in about a hour and she may have a room available... It was close to 12 o'clock noon so I drove to get a bite to eat with my daughter and her best friend to kill time I checked back about 1pm I was told a room was available she just needed a card and photo ID I handed both to the desk clerk and she stated that no prepaid cards were allowed so I said that's weird because this was the card I used to book the hotel as well as was charged $115.14 I assume for the deposit so I politely asked if there was anything else that could be done she said she'd get me an manager...so then came a manager by the name of Theresa who was not as pleasant upon seeing me she looked bothered like the first lady I encountered I explained the situation to the manager and asked is there anything that can be done I can pay a higher deposit or with a different card I had a credit card which she never even looked at but she said no we can not help you or accommodate you because need " a bank issued credit card" I asked why can't I just use any credit or debit card she states that it needed to be " bank issued" I explained to her that I was tired I had been on the road driving since 530am with 2 kids and just wanted to enjoy my weekend with my daughter and her friend for her birthday and that I had never heard of such hotel policy I advised this lady I was in no way trying to be problematic I just was tired and I didn't understand this " bank issue" card policy... I was trying to talk off to the side with her and she proceeded to the counter where another guest were checking in and advised me nothing could be done and she wouldn't accommodate me or my children nothing could be done embarrassed that the person next to me as well as the ladies waiting in the lobby behind me can hear me pleading with this lady to help me is outrageous so I asked for her name which she gave I then asked for the desk clerk name who was now helping the gentleman standing rite next to me name..the manger gave me a nasty attitude hit a button on the desk and told me I need to get out now and I don't need to identify the desk clerk just the manager but I need to go...get out!... I said really I have to leave for asking to identify a worker and now the people in the lobby are hearing this lady put me out of the property... I didn't want to cause any problem and also there were children and others present..I just left the property with little sleep and 2 kids and no place to stay 6hrs from home I couldn't risk driving home and falling asleep behind the wheel and I didn't want to disappoint my daughter for her big "13" I was devastated ...I called guest relations and opened a case and the lady in guest relation couldn't get in contact with the property to get a resolution but she says the property should have accommodated me or found a neighboring hotel so I was left driving around looking for a last minute hotel for the weekend I was left to stay in a motel 6 property which was not in the best shape for 2 kids but what choice was I left with...only to wake up Sunday morning to see another charge to the very same card for $100 so now that is $215.14 that was charged to me while being told by manager and guest relation that I would be refunded I had to call guest relation again and I was told that I would have a check mailed to me because your company does not hold on to customer card info which is crazy because my card was obviously charged twice now I cant get through to anyone to find out if my payment has been mailed...I have been on hold for over a hour on multiple occasions trying to reach guest relation I am utterly disappointed and disgusted in the treatment I received from this company and I hope another mother and child does not have to witness such shame and disrespect over a misunderstanding...I hope this reaches someone to have some type of action taken against this rude manager with obviously no customer service whatsoever
I am writing this letter on behalf of Ava’s Works Productions, to first thank you for the opportunity to stay at the Holiday Inn at 10000 Baltimore Avenue in College Park, Md. Your group sales person, Ms Crystal Walker was very professional and as accommodating as her abilities would allow. She was courteous, professional and showed us that she had our best interest at heart. However, there were multiple situations that would have us to consider using another facility on our return. Below are some of the concerns that need to be addressed:
On Friday, April 5th, the communication was poor between the guests and your staff. We were told breakfast would start at 9:00 AM which seemed strange and not the norm but there was no reason to question the clerk at the front desk. Because we were not given the breakfast tickets, the following morning could have been a disaster with 43 guests coming to breakfast "late" and not having breakfast passes. However, Ms Walker contacted me very early that morning with apologies, letting me know we needed tickets. She also contacted the front desk making them aware of the situation. They made tickets for us and informed me that the time we were told was incorrect. It was not my job to knock on doors, correcting problems created by your hotel. However, because of Ms Walker, we were able to diffuse a potential bad situation.
.On the evening of April 6th, I approached the front desk to get breakfast tickets for the next day. I was told by your front desk (A gentleman with an accent) that; “The hotel has changed the policy and you will not need tickets for breakfast tomorrow. Just go in and give your room number. Breakfast starts at 7:00am” I took his information and shared it with the group. The next morning, (April 7th), was chaotic. The Hostess was not kind in letting my group know that without coupons, you cannot eat for free. When I arrived, my entire group was standing, not knowing what to do. I went to the front desk and Ms Anita tried her best to quickly resolve the issue by writing up tickets to accommodate the group. She was very patient, friendly and accommodating to our situation. Please be advised that while this is all going on, there was a manager on duty (Mohamed Yansaneh) that watched his employees struggle to try and set things straight. After the group started eating, we were told the children’s free meal was only items from the menu and we would have to pay if they went to the breakfast bar. Unfortunately, everyone was already going through the line. We were never made aware of that prior to going through the line.
On that same evening, I brought the bus back to eat at the hotel restaurant 2 hours before closing. We could have gone somewhere else but everyone agreed to dine in your establishment. However after getting there, they were asked to choose the food bar instead of the menu because they may not be able to accommodate everyone. They were short staffed (2 people) That is poor planning on the hotel’s part because there were at least 2 other large groups staying there that weekend. Because they were short staffed, some of the parents ended up buying Pizza for the children which forced them to eat in your open area. That was acceptable other than the loud, vulgar language coming from the bar. Rowdy and loud can possibly be tolerated, however vulgarity is never acceptable. These children’s ears were privy to this and the Manager did nothing to stop it. Some of us were in the restaurant and some were in the open eating area but both places were forced to deal with that type of behavior. There again, no Manager ever tried to stop the loud cursing. I understand the high volume coming from a bar, but the vulgarity was insulting and disturbing to my group.
Our rooms were not serviced. When the group came back from the production the evening of the 6th, they had to call down for towels and other items while kicking dirty towels to the side. No beds were made and some had to come down to get clean towels.
Finally, your GM, Mr. Yansaneh was very disappointing to work with. He made no effort to assist any of the employees who were doing their very best to straighten out each problem. At check-out, there was a question of $129.00 that was thought to be due by us. I knew it was a zero balance and needed the manager to confirm. He made excuses and said he had no way to reach Ms. Walker who initially handled the account. He told me that I would have to wait until Monday to clear the matter up. I was not leaving the CC information of one of my investors accounts open to charge more. He was so non-challan and made no effort to help clear up $129 charge from an over $5,000 hotel bill. It was only when an associate of mine who has knowledge of hotel protocol started investigating which forced Mr. Yansaneh to finally reach Ms. Walker to confirm that our bill was clean.
While I commend you on the cleanliness and most of the courteousness of your staff, I have to say that, without making some type of restitution, I would not consider returning next year or referring my business associates to The Holiday Inn. Ms. Walker did her very best to work with us but there were too many large groups for one person to handle.

My husband and I are ING members and stay frequently at Holiday Inns.
After this experience we will be sure to stay at other hotels in our travels.
I WAS KICKED OUT OF A HOLIDAY INN - EVICTED AFTER IT WAS RESERVED FOR A MONTH FOR MY 59TH BIRTHEDAY
THEY LOCKED MY ROOM AND TOOK MY KEYS BECAUSE THEY SAID THEY SMELED POT IN MY ROOM
WE CHECKED IN, MY GIRLFREIND SAID THEY BOOKED THE WRONG ROOM, SHE HAD THEM SWITCH RMS AFTER I WAS IN THE RM FOR 5 MINUTES
WE WENT TO RM NUMBER 2 UNPACKED, HIKED, ATE DINNER THEN WHEN WE RETURNED MY ROOM, THEKEY DID NOT WORK.
THE DESK CLERK STATED SHE WAS ASKED TO TELL ME TO LEAVE BECAUSE "THEY SMEELD MARIUANA SMOKE IN THE ROOM AND IF I DID IT QUIET THEY WOULD REFUND MY MONEY. THE SUPERVISOR REFUSED TO SPEAK WITH ME. WE WERE PUT ON THE STREEET AND I NEED UPPER MANAGEMENT. THE SOONER THE BETTER. WALLACETOM15@YAHOO.COM. VIOLATED, MISTREATED UNJUSTLY ACCUSED HERESAY
I have stayed at two holiday inn over the past several months. I probably won't be staying again. The reason is the decor is ULGY, very ugly to the point where it makes me anxious and aggravated. The decor is obnoxious, and does not feel inviting, welcoming or calming. While the beds are okay, and the staff professional and helpful, I simply cannot stay where I do not feel welcomed or calm.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Budd Lake N.J. for my daughters dance competition Groove Competition. A room block was provided to us. We have stayed in other Holiday Inns before for other dance competitions and I have had to call due to there times other guests were very loud etc but this time was horrendous.
There was a wedding room block at the same time we were here for the dance competition. We were initially on the 5th floor. In the afternoon the sounds heard of people having sex was very uncomfortable when I was in the hallway with my children. Upon our return from the competition this evening we got off the elevator and the smell of marijuana was overpowering. There was also a smell of cheap beer and the noise was a lot throughout the floor. When we got to our room the noise from the room next to us was so loud at 11 pm my family couldn’t get to sleep. I called the front desk to complain and the gentleman offered to move our room. At 11:15 pm I packed up my family and switched rooms while all were exhausted. I appreciate that there was at least a room to switch too because my next option would have been to check out.
There was quite a mix of guests in the hotel and quite frankly I felt concern for my children’s safety. Typically they will go from room to room with their dance friends and hang out but we did not feel safe to allow them to do so without supervision. My friend traveling with us had a drunk man try to enter her room! Very uncomfortable for families traveling with young children. The smell of cigarettes as you enter the hotel was disgusting and people congregating smoking their cigarettes at the entrance and in the evening it was drunk men smoking when we arrived. The bar is open in the lobby area therefore the drunk men and then the children being walked through the lobby with drunk adults loud and rowdy is not appropriate.
I had to call this to your attention and I will be sending a letter to the dance competition company as well. I would hope instances like this could be avoided in the future for traveling families especially here for an exciting event, dance competition weekend.
Your 1-800 reservation line which goes to India. I am a loyal IHG rewards member (488 905 379) and booking a room over your 800 line has become such an amazing PAIN IN THE ASS...I am now directing my employees to attempt to find any suitable option other than H.I. Express. The voice on the other end cannot be understood because of very heavy accents. They quote rates higher than the rates on line and you have to insist on the rate listed on your H.I Express web-site. I have no image to attach. The image I want you to put in your brain is a customer now searching for other lodging options...Imagine this image....see me "walking away" from H.I. Express and going to Marriott Courtyard instead.
Visiting Iowa for College visit. My son wanted a hotel with hot tub. We got there and it has a plat form built over it with a table a chairs. The Website shows a hot tub. Frustrating as that is what my son wanted prior to his college visit. Its the Holiday Inn Express in Coralville Iowa. my reservation number was 25415381. Our family was not happy. Up date your website. Please.
To whom it may concern,
My company uses the holiday inn express on a regular basis. I have been staying at one or the other holiday inn express hotels in the Chicago area every time I have a corporate meeting to attend. Every time we have an issue about them not having what they need for charging the room to my bosses corporate credit card (and HE makes the reservations!) The only person who has ever been helpful and knows what is going on is the gentleman manager I think his name is Muhammad? I’m not 100% but he is at the N Cumberland ave location in Chicago. Usually I thouroghly enjoy my stay until now.
As usual I was greeted with the same hassle over card payment for room, I explained to the female (she identified herself as a manager) that the Male manager knew what to do because this ALWAYS HAPPENS. I mistakenly believed her when she said “ok” and proceeded to request a card for “incidentals”. To my total shock this afternoon I discovered that the hotel had charged me $139 and change! Since I was unaware of this I also was confronted with multiple negative charges to my debit account because the hotel charge made my account NEGATIVE! I only use this card for minor charges so I do not maintain a lot of money in that account, basically a couple hundred goes in each week that I use for whatever. I immediately called the hotel, I have received an email outlining the fact they charged the WRONG card and initiated a refund. My problem is I am now incurring overdraft charges AND am not able to use my card because it is not yet showing up as a credit to my account! I am being punished financially and mentally stressed because your hotel made this error! I am extremely unsatisfied to say the least. Thankfully the overdraft charges are going to be minimal but it is still an incredible inconvenience. I honestly am not comfortable ever giving my card for incidentals in the future, I no longer trust I won’t be wrongly charged. I will attach the email proving exactly what I said happened. The same thing happened to my coworker who stayed that same night in room next to mine, however she evidently caught it sooner so was credited hers within an hour. Since it’s Saturday, I’m stuck because the banks are closed.
I am due back in Chicago in a month, depending on how this gets resolved will dictate if I request my company use a different hotel chain in the future. Any replies may be made to my personal email account, I merely had email receipt for refund sent to my corporate email so as to provide my company and manager a statement for record.
I am writing today to file a formal complaint of the Holiday Inn Express located at 9400 19th Lane Vero Beach, Fl. 32966.
My son's travel baseball team was playing at Dodgertime for the first time ever and we decided to book our room with the Holiday Inn Express. We booked our room in January, 3 people, for the weekend of 2/15-2/18. We drove in from Ft laudedale the evening of the 15th, arrived at your hotel around 6:30pm. We checked in went up to our room only to find out it was one bed for all of us. I went back downstairs to see what the mix up was, and was told that was the only room available. I explained when we booked we told them 3 people would be staying in the room, the gentlemen at the front desk verified that information to be correct, but proceeded to ask me if I requested 2 beds??? Are you kidding me? Wouldn't common sense tell you that if there are 3 people there should be more than 1 bed? He then said to me...well you never know now a days. Seriously?? I proceeded to call around to other hotels in area and because of this big tournament in Dodgertown all rooms everywhere were booked and I had no other choice but to cram us all into this room. I had to drive to a Walmart in the area to purchase an air mattress, blankets, sheets and a pillow...because yes, that same gentlemen said there were no extra bedding available. So, now I am paying 200.00 a night to stay in this room, and had to spend more money for additional accommodations for my son.
I have never been so disappointed in a hotel stay then I am right now. Not only for the 1 bed, the "friendly" front desk service, but the room stunk like sulfur. ( you all may want to check for mold). I can not believe for a big corporation as Holiday Inn that this is the service you provide to your guests.
I really hope that this is looked into and would love to hear your response to my complaint.
Checked into Holiday Inn Express Spring Hill, TN 02/14/19 and was not satisfied with my queen "suite". Only thing that made it a suite was addition of a couch. Asked to change to regular queen room, was told could not, even after being shown the regular room by employee on duty. And, if I wanted a credit on the suite had to vacate in five minutes. Directions came from same employee, Tonya Kitchings, who was very rude to me earlier in the day, when making the reservation. She had been contacted by evening employee by phone for direction. So, I could not rent another room and had to get out in five minutes. During reservation process, Tonya said price had gone up while she put me on hold and there was nothing she could do about it, and asked if I still wanted the room. I asked then if there was someone else who could help me, and she said no.
Have to say, not used to being treated this way. It was late in the evening, and very inconvenient.
When we were checking in at the reception on 2/2/2019 @ 10:45 pm. Mr. Cortez the receptionist was very rude. I ‘m trying to ask him about the breakfast that was paid already but he’s asking a paper as a proof for the payment. Anyway, while I am looking for the email, he keeps on talking that distracts me. Finally I found the email and showed it to him. Then he gave me the voucher for the breakfast.
My concern is that. This guy has no manners in interacting with the customer. Very poor customer service. I was so disappointed with my stay in this hotel. Rm no 3316 bldg 3

We checked in about 3 PM on Sat Jan 12. Dropped our bags off in the room #242. Used the bathroom before going out. We told the front desk there was some thing wrong with the toilet. We saw that renovations were going on on half of the floor. We came back to the room about 10 PM. Went to the bathroom to find that we had 2 towels for four people one being a child that is five years old. We found some one to give us more towels. Which came in handy when the toilet started to over flow. We called the front desk and they told us that nobody was on duty to help us. Seeing that we can't use the bathroom we wanted another room. We called the front desk again to see if we can change rooms. This time nobody answered the phone. I went downstairs to talk to someone but nobody was there. The phone were ringing like crazy. People started to come down to complain. Some people started to call your main office. About One AM someone came down and said he wasn't there because he had a flood on the 4th Floor. He gave us another room on the same floor #250. Which wasn't any better because we had to sleep with our jackets on. The only ones that was enjoying the room was the 4 brown bugs I had to Kill. If I didn't have something to do the next day I would have packed up and went home. The man at the front desk did tell us this was just a little better. We packet up the car at first light and went in to have breakfast. I thought cooks in the military were bad but your cooks made them look good. At checkout we told the front desk what we went through his answer was if i"m off i don't give a f__k, what goes on here. They took $40 off the bill and said have a nice day. I thought we should of been treated better. At least offered a complementary night on them at another hotel or maybe a weekend on behave of the company cause of how bad of a night we had.
I stayed at your hotel last night, I'm a single mom alone with three kids. I was aware my ride was going to be late and the front desk was made aware of this as well. As people often do this person I was depending on wasn't to the hotel on time to get me. So what was I told?? That if my ride wasn't there by 2:30 that we had to leave. Thank you so much for making an already very stressful situation for my family, a whole lot worse. A man that I was told does matainace treated us the worst. We we're scared and upset a little understanding wouldn't have hurt anyone. It was made clear to the desk staff I would be having to wait in the hotel a little while. I had no control over how quickly my ride picked us up. So with hardly and money at all I went across the parking lot to the restaurant there. And u know what they treated me with more kindness respect and understanding. I am disgusted by the way your staff handled this! I promise I will tell everyone who will listen about u throwing a mother and her children out in the cold. I hope the roles are never reversed and u are alone and scared. Because maybe the world will show u the compassion you failed to show us
Ive stayed at this location quite often check my account.I use all my points or pay at this location.
My issue is 2 things.There is only one elevator and has been for awhile and always a crowd waiting for because there is only 1.
An even bigger issue is the fact that the door nearest the elevator is not secure anyone can walk in-and-out of the hotel and I have seen it happen especially when Bar Louie is having something that is an safety issue. That's a problem!
I have addressed this before and nothing has happened and that door has been this way at least 4 months that I'm aware of.
I decided after my last stay that I wont be staying at this location anymore and it's very convenient for me and I use to enjoy staying in matteson but I need to feel safe. It's very unfortunate.
I made a reservation to have a dinner dance (inauguration of Officers for Zambales Association) at 5655 Greenwich Rd. Virginia Beach Virginia 23462; to be held on April 13, 2019; I consulted Ms. JoAnn Sipe on December 2018 and she confirmed that Holiday Inn can accommodate us to have our event. The menu, date, and priced are all confirmed on January 4, 2019 by Ms. JoAnn Sipe and me.Before hand, when I was talking to her, she told me that we are the first to served for April 13, 2019, we do not have a problem
On January 08, 2018, Ms JoAnn Sipe notified me that April 13, 2019 was completely book and we will not be able to hold our event on the contracted date. .
Made reservations at the Holiday Inn Express on Bintu Lane, in San Marcos, for January 19th, one night, leaving on the 20th. I could not find my email confirmation on this reservation, and requested another one be sent to me. At first she told me there were NO reservations in my name for that date, then said yes, she would send me an email confirmation on it.
I never received my email confirmation, and the lady that I was talking to was NOT very friendly. Also, your online price now for that exact room is $85.49....when I made this reservation back in December, it quoted me a price of $118.19. I asked if I could get this room for the $85.49 price on the 19th of January, and she gave me a flat out NO.
I think this entire situation is a very bad public relations deal....discourages me from making reservations ahead of time. I did this because I wanted to reserve a Handicap room, with roll-in shower, ground floor. I was told at the time of making this reservation that it was the LAST room available on that date. It also, discourages me from staying at any more Holiday Inn Express Hotels. Haven't even stayed my night yet, and are already unhappy with your service!
fradulant use of my credit card. had to leave early for family emergency
Hotel removed my & my finances personal belongings from our room while it was still occupied by us, with a do not disturb sign displayed. Hotel did not return our belongs, did not provide us with reimbursement, no explanation, no ownership, no sense of urgency and no follow up. they told my fiancé their is nothing they can do, and they do not know where our belongs are.
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Hiawassee, Georgia this past weekend for our son's wedding. Housekeeping never cleaned our room i.e. taking out trash, making beds, taking out used towels and replacing them with new ones. I went to the Manager on staff after 3:00 P.M. He said, "there is no excuse, apologized, and told me to place the wet towels on the furniture in foyer." He said, "it won't happen again and proceeded to get me towels." My husband and I are both disabled and I had to roll the towels in my walker to get them to the room!!! The next day we came back to the room and the same thing happened again. NO HOUSEKEEPING SERVICE!! I went back to the front and the same manager was on duty. He didn't apologize for the lack of service this time and handed me plastic garbage bags to clean the trash myself. I called Guest Services; was told to wait 48 hours for resolution; nothing happened; and we were still charged the full amount for our stay. I will be glad to post this on all the travel sites and blogs to make people aware of this travesty. confirmation number46560709
The general manager of the Hopkinsville, KY Holiday Inn falsely accused me of threatening an employee in the parking lot. I didn't do it. She embarassed, humiliated, and bullied me off the property! This woman threatened me with trespassing charges and told me she would call the police on me. There were witnesses onlooking this. A civil suit is what's going to happen.
My Complaint is that while I'm a regular customer each week of a two night stay. I find it very dishearten that the kitchen staff on the weekend are very rude and very uneducated about personal hygiene and customer service when helping the customers. The staff wants to serve warm milk as the fridge is broken and food is prepared with no gloves or hairnets. The kitchen weekend staff are rude and customer service training is needed. A staff member has asked me to not enter the kitchen as I stood in the door way of the kitchen to ask for a tray. The staff member went on to make negative comments about me as the customer to another employee. Not sure if the facility has ever had Customer Service training 101 or not? My suggestion is that someone hire up check on what the issue maybe with the following Holiday Inn Express Salisbury, NC location.
Stayed at this hotel in August. Was overcharged for an additional 3 days after we checked out and left the area. Tried to contact the management to settle the dispute. Management never returned my phone calls. Amount in question is $503.00. This is not insignificant. This hotel is running some sort of scam, double charging for their rooms. They charged us for a room that we did not use for three days. Room must have been given to another consumer who also was charged. Will NEVER stay at another Holiday Inn anywhere. Fraudulent practices.
I am filing this complaint as a rewards member # 165459801, who is a frequent business traveler and stays at many hotels. Upon attempt to check-in, the front desk staff completed paperwork and stated he would call my cell when room was ready. Please note, he did not call, I had to call the holiday in staff member. When I checked into the room, I was shocked at the condition. The pillows were flat and you could tell were old and worn as well as the sheets, towels and duvet. Please see attached vent from the bath room that was filthy as well an unhealthy. Although there was a vent in the bathroom, it was nonoperational. I asked for additional coffee and was told no as the limit is two Kuerigs' per room. This is sad response for a hotel staff member to tell a guest. The hotel is providing a service and being paid.
I am one not to complain however the quality of this hotel is unsatisfactory. I am requesting rewards points for one night in this category hotel due to the inconvenience. Please respond to my cell: 727-249-4698.or email.
