This hotel is convenient, right off 400, and when you book online through some place like Travelocity you can get a pretty good rate ($113). So I can imagine going again for those reasons. Here's what I noticed that makes me wonder how this place is getting such rave reviews: the hallway rugs are coming off the floor, leaving large... More

I didn't know hotels still had smoking rooms. This felt like a motel and smelt like one, not up to holiday inn standards by any means. I expected more when you book a holiday inn. The front desk manager was rude to us upon arrival. I would stay at the comfort inn instead. Disappointed .

We truly enjoyed our stay here. The only downfall was that the washroom didn't have a fan (I think the system they have in central air); we had cats in with us and it became hard to manage the litter smell without the fan. I loved being in the lobby area, something about the chlorine smell of the pool made... More

It was a nice stay but could have been better! Hotel has both indoor and outdoor pools. Room was very clean and housekeeping did an excellent job. Front desk staff needs to be well trained and needs to be more professional.

Although the room was expensive for the long weekend, it was well worth it. The newly renovated room was beautiful and very clean. We are sticklers for cleanliness and the carpets were spotless, the bathroom shower has no mold.

Great spot just off the highway. Close to all amenities. Walking distance to restaurants and of course a Tim Hirtons. Amazing for conferences and meetings. Clean, comfy and good customer service. Plan your next function here.

One of the most intricate and well laid out places I have been to. Staff was polite and always available. Bar had excellent choices of liquor, and the location was perfect to suit my needs. Would recommend to anyone.

Upon arrival at the hotel had trouble finding the front desk (lots of hallways, with poor signage). I had to park at the back as it was raining and hotel was busy due to a conference. Front desk staff gave me a room number, but did not direct me as to where to go. There is a tower attached to... More

Thank you for your comments. We continually review our directional signage and look for ways to move our guests through our large full service hotel. We have 2 signs at the front entrance/drive through canopy asking all guests to check in before parking and off loading luggage. This often helps our guests with parking close to their guestroom entrance. More

My company booked this location to hold our seminar, I stayed overnight and when I arrived I was greeted by a freindly staff member. I asked for a Tower room which was clean and comfortable and was given an upgrade, with no hesitation. I really enjoyed the fresh fruit water in the lobby, It was great to fill my water... More
