I don't write bad reviews unless a business is exceptionally terrible but after staying at Holiday Inn Express Kalamazoo East, I would be doing my fellow travelers a disservice if I didn't warn them. On June 5, 2021, I checked in for two nights. Check in was simple. Morgan, the front clerk was very pleasant and remained sweet during all interactions. Unfortunately, it all went down hill after check in. I changed rooms four times - YES, FOUR TIMES! Room #1 was not the type of room requested, I reserved a king but when I opened the room door, I was greeted with two double beds. Okay so I go back to the first desk with my luggage to get the room key for the room type I ordered. Room#2 - Upon walking into the second room, I noticed a large stain in the middle of the king bed and someone had thrown a plastic shopping bag full of garbage outside the window. The room was on the second floor but there is a landing type structure outside the window so you are not looking down at the ground (like a roof) I go back down to the front desk with my luggage because the idea of sleeping in a stained bed and a view of garbage is gross Room#3 - I had high hopes with this room it was clean but.... the sink was nearly clogged and very slowly draining; the toilet was running loudly (constantly) and by the morning, stopped flushing; the tv remote wasn't working; the room telephone had a recording that said to check the internet connection. The next morning, I called the front desk to notify staff of the problems with current room. The manager was working the front desk and apologized and delivered a key to a new room. Room #4 Now that I have a fully functional hotel room but....its dirty! The bed is beautifully made but the toilet bowl is stained - not stained as if the toilet is old but feces stained, dirty bath tub, sticky stuff on one of the tables, and trash in the refrigerator that was left by the previous traveler. I went to the front desk and reported the dirty room to the manager Judy. She assured me that she would get housekeeping to clean the room. I had high hope that this would be taken care of because it was still morning. Yeah right! I left the hotel and was gone all day. I returned about 9:00 or 10:00p.m. and guess what? The room wasn't clean! Toilet was still nasty, bath tub is gross, and trash was still in the refrigerator! I've been bamboozled and hoodwinked! I also feel stupid because I could have check out and went to another hotel I complained to the front desk clerk, no its Jill. Jill was pleasant and apologize. She offered to adjust my bill for each day of my stay. She adjusted that first night and said she would leave a note for the staff to adjust the second day when I check out (the next day). Well, this had to be too easy because the next morning, there was no such note. The front desk person, Morgan again could not find it. She contacted her manager, Judy (remember the one who promised to have the room clean) and rather than giving Morgan permission to adjust the room rate Judy tell her that she will call me the night day - What the hell! Now you know the fun doesn't stop here. I never received that phone call from Judy to adjust the room. When I called, Jill answered the phone and stated that she was adjusting the bill as she spoke with me. Guess what? its been a week and that credit never appeared on my statement unless Fifth Third received and spent it. So I made one last attempt to correct this problem. Today is June 14th and this morning I called to speak with Judy or Jill. Guess what? Neither person was there. Sharon a new employee answered the phone. She was very understanding and asked if I wanted to leave a message. I thanked her but said no thanks. I'm cutting my losses with this company. They lack integrity and I'm too old to waste time on these shenanigans that I can't get back.

This is a great place to stay. They served hot breakfast (they bring it to you) even during COVID. The room was clean, spacious and the bed delightful. Soft and fluffy! We will be back when we visit WMU. Close enough to campus but not in the middle of campus.

At first glance the room was clean. However the shower and shower curtain were stained yellow. The carpet in the bedroom was stained and bedding was not completely clean. It was hard to feel comfortable in the room. The hotel staff was very friendly, but overall the hotel needs maintenance work completed and design updates. I would never book this hotel again. I wish I would have taken pictures to add to this review. There also was very limited breakfast choices due to COVID. You could choose from an oatmeal packet, granola bar, or piece of fruit. I’m not sure how strict the restrictions are, but I felt like there could have been a little more of an effort made to provide a slightly better breakfast. I do understand that they could not have the normal buffet style breakfast, but this was a let down.

I hadn’t stayed in a Holiday Inn Express for several years because I thought they were going downhill. However, after staying in the HIE in Kalamazoo, I have changed my mind. I was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. Everything was very clean, inviting and up to date. The bed was firm but comfortable, and the water in the shower was warm and powerful. We had all the amenities in the bathroom we needed and plenty of clean towels. I was also impressed that they had a small Keurig coffee machine, a small kitchenette with a sink, built in microwave and refrigerator with a small freezer—big enough to refreeze my small ice packs. We had a room on the second floor at the end of the hall, so it was very quiet. The breakfast was delicious and included scrambled eggs, small omelettes, turkey sausage, biscuits and gravy, a pancake machine and warm, soft cinnamon rolls. Also included were the regular items:,juice, coffee, yogurt, cereals, bagels, English muffins, fruit, etc. if you walked away hungry, it would be your own fault. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and checkout was easy. All in all, we had an excellent stay.

We arrived to check in and was assigned a spacious king corner room. The bed was nice and firm and I slept well. If I had to pick a couple of minor annoyances I would say that there was low lighting in bathroom and the bathroom floor was really slippery, even while dry. The breakfast was standard but good. Would choose this location again if I was in the area.
