The perfect venue
We had our wedding at this hotel and it was so perfect thanks to Barbara Hertel the catering sales manager. She had such a positive attitude and worked so hard to make sure every detail of our big day was wonderful. She helped calm my nerves the day of the wedding. Even the day after she checked on us and made sure we had everything. She communicated with us through every step. All of the staff was very kind. The man at the front desk even upgraded our room the night after the wedding. I highly recommend this venue for weddings.Sent on 10/19/2019

Wonderful Experience - Great Place!
My wedding reception was on Friday October 19, 2018 - The Holiday Inn was perfect for what my husband and I wanted. We recently got married at the court house in September and wanted a simple reception to just celebrate with family and friends. Everything was so easy!!!!!!!! It definitely was stress free! Our wedding coordinator Lisa was amazing! I remember calling her about my wedding tables and either having or not having burlap and she was online helping me find a good size if I wanted it and giving me advice! She was always willing to help with whatever I needed and my husband and I always felt like we were treated like family there which goes a long way for us! Thank you to the Holiday Inn for everything!Sent on 10/22/2018

Crystal Lake Holiday Inn very large venue all in one spot, reasonably priced, and good food!
We just had out wedding at the Crystal Lake Holiday Inn and it was absolutely perfect. The venue was huge, they have 11,000 sq ft. Amanda was our coordinator and she was very responsive and helped us along the way until the end because wedding planning can be very stressful. The food was excellent and they are reasonably priced. Only issues we had was with the front desk making room reservations but as far as everything else we would highly recommend. Also, loved the bridal sweet for everyone to get ready in and huge pond view which were perfect for pictures.Sent on 11/14/2018
