Enjoyed our stay, good value, hot tub chemicals were off ~ changed the girls bathing suits from pink to purple! A little wear and tear on the rooms but very clean and one of the best hotel buffet breakfasts I've been to. Convenient location, walking distance to movies, shopping and lots of restaurants. Short drive to #400 and Barrie Molson... More

Attention: Hotel GM - Room 215 has a needlessly dirty window with multiple head smudge marks and nasal phlegm pieces from a past guest - yech!

Fast check-in to a clean room. Even received an adjoining room with the couple we were with. Good choice for breakfast and it is included in the price of the room. Agree with another poster that the bathroom is too small. Can barely get in there to shut the door, never mind think of having 2 people in there @... More

Room with separate queen well worth the money with kids. Bathroom dated and could be cleaner otherwise room and linens clean. Good breakfast. Excellent location in commercial district, close to highway 400 many restaurant chains, big box stores and movies. Pool just big enough to cool off and allow kids some fun.

When I first called to book my hotel with Holiday Inn, I let them know that I needed a hotel with no smoking. They referred me to the hotel on Bryne street as it is a smoke free building.
