Holiday Inn Express is Pet-Friendly

Meet our 11 year-old Jack Russell Terrier. She’s definitely part of our family. We don’t dress her up in people clothes or let her sleep in our bed, but whenever we go on vacations, making sure she’s cared for is a very big deal.

Meet Holiday Inn Express, Howe. They’ve become a home away from home for a huge family of travelers who hit the road with their pets because this hotel is pet-friendly. They welcome furry family friends, which is a big deal for travelers like us.

As a matter of fact, this specific hotel has won a five dog-bone rating from BringFido.com, a “dog travel directory that provides unbiased reviews” (from their website). BringFido.com has a Director of Barketing who gave the Howe hotel the perfect score.

In our opinion, Holiday Inn Express gets positive “howes,” er, howls, for its pet-friendly service. But it also gets kudos because it’s an all-around solid hotel. Given the Holiday Inn Express franchise, this hotel stays consistent with the brand’s high standards of quality.

But because Holiday Inn Express is located in LaGrange County, Indiana Amish backroads, it also boasts of other regional amenities.

“We promote our local businesses,” said Ronnie Snook, manager. “A local person here can tell you about all the special attractions in the area. There’s so much to offer. Plus, along with popcorn and cookies, we also serve soup every day from the Howe Restaurant.”

Snook mentions a number of visitors are return guests. “We have one family from Pennsylvania who travels here twice each year, and they always stay with us. They tell us it’s because of the staff.”

That staff makes sure each and every room is cleaned from top to bottom, including those special rooms offering bunk beds or Jacuzzis.

Others choose to stay because the hotel is located right across from Michiana Event Center, home to numerous events throughout the year, including the National Clydesdale Sale and Show, Amish furniture shows, home shows, and even a circus.

I took a quick peek on one of the travel websites, and given the reviews on it, the Howe Holiday Inn Express received 4.6 out of 5 points.

Now that’s something to howl about in Howe.

This hotel is located at 45 W. 750 N, Howe, Indiana 46746
