Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express & Suites Lake Forest

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"No frills satisfactory."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Room was comfortable, but housekeeping didn't leave bathroom soap for guests. An unannounced security deposit of $100 was charged to our visa account after we left. Have since found out that it will be credited back to our account. They should always inform their guests about what they are doing that will affect ones finances.

"Restful Night and Catching Up "
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This hotel is wonderful! Everyone was so ready to make our stay as pleasant as it could be. It's very clean, well kept and so quiet you never hear anything. Breakfast is very good with the opportunity of having a special dish like an omelet or breakfast burrito, as well as waffles, cereal, juices and the usual. We are in the process of moving and are in-between houses. This was the perfect place for us and our three cats to stay. Loved everything and would stay here again in a minute.
