This property is ok. The hot-tub was not working but my room was clean and had a surprise complementary order of cheese sticks left by a past quest and not removed by house keeping. I didn’t try the bar or the restaurant. The lady at the front desk was very nice. This was a good stay. I would stay here again when in Ft. Wayne.

We spent 3 nights here as part of a convention/group. Rates were good and did include the "Farmer's Breakfast" which was eggs, meat, bread and potatoes. Service and food consistency in the breakfast area was good on the weekdays (thank you Mitchel!) but poor on the weekend....harried/disorganized service and poorly cooked/served food. The BIG negative in the breakfast area was a female server who wore her mask below her nose and that we saw the tables cleaned with a big ol' dirty rag; with no disinfectant! The room was very clean as was the overall property. The staff did not always wear masks and they did NOT enforce the mask policy as they let guests walk in without them. There was a roller hockey group there and the men and boys in this group often had no masks and were not told by staff to comply...poor hotel policy here! Our group had a meal provided by the hotel, with several choices that everyone seemed to enjoy, and it was well priced. Overall it was a good stay but cleaning and mask compliance needs improvement.

Thank you, Famontherun, for your very detailed feedback regarding your stay. The feedback that we get is very important to ensuring that we are proving the best stay possible for all of our guests. I see here that we did not fully accomplish our goal, and for that I offer my sincerest apologies. I will be sure to pass on to Mitchel that you enjoyed his service, and I will be coaching with the Restaurant Manager and his staff, including servers, on what is expected. When it comes to the masks, the law is very new in the state of Indiana. To prevent outrage that has been displayed on social media, we have opted to inform anyone not wearing a mask of the updated law in place. We cannot, however, force anyone to put them on. It is unfortunate that not everyone is wanting to do their part to stay safe. At that point we restrict their access to public areas of the hotel until a mask is worn. I hope this clears up a little bit. Again, all of this will be documented and discussed with all departments to ensure proper coaching. I thank you for your feedback, and look forward to serving you again in the future.

This Holiday Inn is in a very convenient location, directly across the street from the Coliseum, not far from a large mall and restaurants, and only a few miles from downtown. I checked in around 1, and my room was ready. It’s of average size, and clean. Bed was fine, shower was OK, and halls were quiet.

I did use the pool briefly which is of decent size. There is no spa. I didn’t eat at the onsite restaurant or bar.

There are several mastodons statues located on the property, as that is the mascot of nearby Purdue- Fort Wayne. A nice touch, but some of them have seen better days and need to be repaired or replaced.

Would have honestly been better off in a cheap motel off the highway. Got in late so a horrible buzzing noise in the bathroom is all we endured that night, which we decided to sleep through. Then everything wrong was thrown on us in the morning as we had to get up very early for a figure skating competition. Toilet would not flush entirely until 4 or 5 flushes per person and even worse the water turn on in the shower was literally coming out of the wall. We delicately could turn on the water as the whole faucet was coming apart but no hot water could be accessed from that faucet. We both had to stand outside the shower and cup water onto ourselves. Bedsheets we’re dirty and remote had no backing and only certain buttons worked. Don’t tell me none of these issues were noticed in the past before they stuck us in this room. Just a gross experience and we were only there like 11 hours. Update: just got an email about my experience saying I should have contacted maintenance. So it’s my fault right?! Give me a break! Don’t waste your time here, find an alternate hotel!

We were in Ft. Wayne for an event at the convention center across the street, and the location of this hotel absolutely cannot be beat. The rooms are basic and a bit outdated, but overall everything is clean and comfortable.
Overall I would choose to stay here again if I needed to come to Ft. Wayne for an event at the convention center. That being said there are some things the hotel could do to improve : 1. Breakfast should be included and it's annoying it's not. 2. It would be great if there would be a microwave in the room. 3. The hot tub was closed and based on other reviews it has been closed for some time.

Hotel is definitely overpriced for what you get. Rooms are somewhat newer, but still feel out dated. 1 outlet on the lamps and by the bed stands. Most people, if you have a phone and a CPAP machine, need 2 outlets available. I sleep with my phone as my alarm, like most people. Restaurant service was sub-par at best.

First, the hotel is super clean. Everyone is very helpful. I had made a reservation and somehow it was cancelled through a third-party, but MS. SHELLEY RANDOLPH came to my rescue. She truly made things happen for me and my child. There was a large sports tournament going on in and around the area and everything that was at least decent was booked. Ms. Shelley is wonderful!

1st room smells like rotten eggs. 2nd room smells like stale cigarette smoke. 3rd room was a charm. Better, but not the clean, bleach smell I'm used to smelling in hotels. My shower was cool/warm until the last 3 minutes when it got hot.

As a Platinum Member I always stay at Holiday Inn properties. And this property has been my usual “go-to” hotel for my frequent visits to the area. The most recent stay was my last. My room was never serviced during my 3 day stay. There was no longer a microwave in the room. Nor was there a desk or adequate lighting to work on my laptop. Breakfast was buffet only with mediocre food - however the biscuits & gravy were excellent. And the restaurant & bar are closed on Sunday, so you will need to find another place to grab a bite. The only bright spot was Kathy, the bartender, who has been there for years. I will be staying elsewhere on my next trip in a couple months.

Dear Jeanne Z, Thank you for choosing our hotel while visiting Purdue and for taking the time to provide feedback about your experience. Pleasure having you as our guest. I am very sorry that you did not experience an exemplary stay due to your room not being serviced and the quality of our breakfast. This is certainly below our usual high standard of service. Please be assured that I have noted and forwarded your comments for the management to improve. In the midst of the inconvenience, I am glad to know that the service at the bar was still appreciated. I very much hope that you will grant us the opportunity to prove ourselves again. Best Regards, Ben W. Case Manager IHGService

Hotel is fine. Newer and pretty clean. But to charge $286 and not even offer breakfast guarantees I’ll stay somewhere else next time. Everything closed up at 10 too on a Saturday night. Plenty of great boutique hotels cheaper ten minutes away downtown, right in the middle of everything.
