Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Brainerd Baxter

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Excellent stay"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The staff was amazing, the hotel clean and shiny. In all honesty we didn't expect such a beautiful room! We drove up from Michigan to pick up our welsh terrier puppy and thought that since the hotel allowed pets it would be a dump; we were happily mistaken!

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"Everything went excellent. I'm really glad I decided to go with both your company and Sierra Suites for accommodations for my wedding. People are now wishing there were more Sierra Suites around. They were even kind enough to offer the discounted rate to those people that weren't sure they'd make to the wedding until after the cutoff date. I have already referred someone to your service for a wedding she's planning in Michigan." R.S. - Parsippany, NY
