Verified Reviews of Holiday Inn Express & Suites Alpena Downtown An Ihg Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"They did the best they could under the circumstances."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Wish it had a hot tub and deeper pool for tall people.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
30-Jun-2022 Verified Review, stayed from Tue Jun 28 to Wed Jun 29 2022 at a $202.99 average nightly rate.
"Extremely difficult check in, but nice facility."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We booked a room (not through Holiday Inn itself) for a wedding and the check in process was unreasonably long (at least 20min). We showed up an hour after our check in time and the receptionist had to call the agency we booked through in order for the hotel to get reimbursed for our stay and she was talking to me as if I knew how to fix it. She also showed me a list of other guests she needed to get checked in via this same process, which seems like it could've been handled before check in times started. Once we finally got our room, the room was clean and spacious and well kept.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
15-Jun-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Jun 12 to Sun Jun 13 2021 at a $176.99 average nightly rate.
"Alpena Trip"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Very difficult to connect to Wi Fi, breakfast was cold and server was not happy with his job.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
08-Jun-2021 Verified Review, stayed from Mon Jun 07 to Tue Jun 08 2021 at a $143.99 average nightly rate.
"Room great, breakfast awful."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Front desk people very nice, room was great: new, clean, comfortable, had everything we needed. Breakfast was disgusting eggs (powdered?), cinnamon rolls stale. Cereal was good. Was appalled that a generic ice cream bar was priced at $4.50. Passed, of course.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
24-Jul-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Jul 20 to Mon Jul 22 2019 at a $158.81 average nightly rate.
"Mixed up reservation."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Issues: 1) we requested two bed because we were staying with another couple. When we arrived we found a king bed and a pull out couch. They front desk simply said they were all books and could not switch us 2) we had a handicap accessible shower which we did not request. The shower head mechanism also seemed to be malfunctioning so you basically had to hold the shower head and was very inconvenient The good: 1. They easily provided us with the early check in and late check out we had requested 2. The room was very clean.
(Individual traveler, booked 1 room), from US flag
28-May-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Sat May 25 to Sun May 26 2019 at a $115.56 average nightly rate.
