Holiday Inn Modena Reviews
ok hotel as overnight rest stop Sep 13, 2011
The staff made up for the old tired hotel. It was formally a Holiday Inn serving people who had to drive long distance. The former enterance as I can see from my room used to be accessed via the autostrada but now been relocated to some wierd junction.
Hotel is located 10km from modena city. 20km from ferrari museum. Stayed there because i had driven tons of miles to visit the ferrari museum. (Museum is so so only but that is another story). I would stay some where more interesting if I am going there again but chose this because i didnt want the hassel of navigating italian cities with their restricted parking and access without permits after hours of driving.
Hotel is old and a little tired. Staff was fantastic. carpark looked a little scary as it looked like some abandoned site (which it was - it was formally a guarded carpark but that business probably went south badly so the whole site looked like an abandoned site).
Anyway, once you get into the hotel, the interior is like an older holiday inn, even the sheets reminded me of the patterns from the holiday inns. bed is clean room is well kept but just a little tired. some rooms - first room i got AC not working and tap water was brown cos that room had not been used for a while (that gives you an idea of the occupancy rate) moved to another room which was more frequently used. that proved to be more comfortable.
its good for those driving long distance and just want a break from the driving. otherwise there is nothing to recommend it due to location.
Just 5 mins drive round the corner is a large suburban mall called Grandemille it has everything but not much food joints as i suspect being in such a location, most people go buy their fresh stuff and cook at home. so location again does not afford much food choices (4 sandwich/precooked pizza type cafe and a Mac). But the mall is pretty good with all sorts of shops.
Too bad about location which means lower traffic which made the hotel suffer but the staff though were great.
