It has been a long time sine I stayed in a Holiday Inn. They were always tired and had no appeal to me. This one was clean and updated. The reception was VERY welcoming. The room refreshed and tech ready.

We stayed Father's Day weekend. There were musicians playing at the Gazebo bar that we wanted to listen to. Although we were there in the morning, way before even a normal early check in time we were immediately found a room. Even though the only one cleaned and ready was an upgrade from what we had reserved we were given... More

everything after checkin was brutal. Check in staff informed us that we booked "city view" like it was a bad thing.... well, it was! Room was dirty, dark, worn out and smelled of mildew. The shower curtain was smelly and slimy, tiles are old and gross, I felt gross in the bathroom. The hallways were noisy, as was the road.... More

We returned to this hotel after two years for our anniversary on Friday July 3/15. We booked an king/business waterfront room and asked for as high up as possible. When we arrived in Peterborough around noon, we checked in and received a room on the 4th floor. We left and did some things and returned later. The room as usual... More

My (now) husband and I got married in Peterborough towards the end of May. Being from out of town, we booked into the Holiday Inn for a few nights.

Shan (bartender), Lynn (housekeeping), and Michelle (booking) made my stay very pleasant and enjoyable. Shan knows how to make a proper martini. Lynn gave some personal touches. Facilities were decent and location of the hotel on the river was great.

I don't agree with Lawrence2300 that this hotel is a 'dump', but I do think that it needs work. The decor looks dated and the place smells musty. We grew to like our room on the first floor. It was tired, but very quiet. We slept well. On the positive side the hotel has a restaurant and bar and in... More

Simply put: this hotel is a dump - well beyond any 'best before' date. The owners should shame themselves in trying to stretch the desert need for renovations. Noisy AC units, lumpy beds, disgusting bathroom tiles. Need I say more. On the opposite end of the spectrum, some of the finest front desk and restaurant personnel. Great folks, sucky environment....

Try to book a room in the low numbers, With about 50 rooms per floor, this place makes you walk a mile to get from check-in to the high numbers.
