We stayed only for one night, but we had a great time at this hotel. Our window was looking out the back of the hotel, so not right onto the street but what we figured was the exit of the Detroit Windsor Tunnel. We didn't find it noisy and the room itself was very comfortable, roomy and well-equipped. The service... More

The Holiday Inn has an ideal location for Windsor. It's close to restaurants, the casino, and boarder. The service was good as well. The rooms are ok, but a little dated and could be a bit cleaner. The connecting restaurant serves a decent breakfast, but isn't included. Parking is $12 on the roof of the hotel.

I stayed here for 4 nights while attending a confrence at the Cesars palace casino. The hotel was in a great spot (7 min walk to the casino) with clean rooms and friendly staff. What else could you ask for?

This hotel was excellent in every way, especially the staff, very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms a bit small, easy access from the tunnel, the waterfront is beautiful and the shopping was great. A nice weekend getaway! We will be back!

Lobby was nice. Front desk was very helpful and efficient. Great location and easy to get to. The parking was a bit mickey-mouse up on the roof – glad we checked in relatively early and was able to get a good spot but I have no idea how others were able to park where they did. Rooms were ok –... More

You can't beat the location in the downtown core. Clean well-appointed rooms and a comfy bed. Polite service. There's complimentary coffee, but it's awful. Starbucks just around the corner though. No frills, but a solid economical option. Walking distance to some nice restaurants.

I recently travelled to Windsor due to a death in my family. From the moment I called the Holiday Inn to book my room, Heather at the front desk was very sensitive to my grief.

I stayed here while visiting Family for Easter. Check-in was quick and easy and the rooms were very clean. Staff was friendly and very helpful. The underground parking is great for the downtown location.
