The front desk clerk was exceptional. Had set up the complimentary crib in our room in advance of our arrival and was exceptionally pleasant throughout our stay. The pool was very cool - too cold but the steam room functioned well (but it needs a deep scrubbing). Breakfast was good; the pancake machine is interesting but the product quality is... More

It was a typical Holiday Inn. Room was roomy with comfortable beds and loved the choice of the firm and soft pillows. Staff was very accommodating and answered our questions. Breakfast was substantial with good choices. Price was reasonable and we would stay here again.

I was on first floor and my room had no issues. I haven't been to other hotels in Dryden but this one was fine. It was a typical Holiday Inn Express. I have been to some of them and most of the are acceptable. This one in Dryden meets or even exeeds their brand's standard. They had pool as well... More

I stayed here as I needed a place to rest as I was traveling late through Dryden. My room is clean and the staff is nice. Something if found strange is that the thermostat in the room was in Fahrenheit. So I couldn't easily set my room temperature to what I like. The bed feels basic but I slept fine.... More

We have stayed at this hotel on many occasions traveling through Dryden. The rooms are very clean. The prices are reasonable. They also offer a nice breakfast every morning. We will continue to go back.

Had a great stay at this Holiday Inn Express. Check out was fast and we were upgraded to a suite since we're a platinum member. They also offered a couple of specialty tea K-cups for the Keurig in the room. The room was large with a king size bed and a separate sitting area with another TV. There was a... More

We stayed here accidentally when we were stranded in Dryden one evening. The clerk was sympathetic to our plight and we were given a lovely room to rest for the evening. Took a quick dip in the pool and slept very well. The breakfast is the best part though, all you can eat and anything you could wish for!

I was very happy with this hotel. Hotel is very clean and well maintained. Staff were courteous and helpful at all times. Room was nice and clean with no problem areas. Breakfast was limited in choice, but a good hearty start to the day. Overall a good choice. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed for two nights with no big complaints and only one warning. This hotel was booked by the school board I work for, though we have stayed here as a family in the past. Located on the Trans Canada, close to shopping and restaurants it is a good choice for travellers as well. Hotel was clean and my room... More
