We stayed here as part of an annual group event recently. We travel a fair amount and this hotel is wayyyy to overprices for how badly it needs updates and repairs. We paid over $125 for a night. Bathroom door cracked... hard to open door. Talked to one couple and their door handle actually came off. The outside doors claim... More

We were very excited at the thought of having a family getaway weekend. We chose this hotel because of the location, advertisement of a remodel, plus the pools, basketball, volleyball court and floor hockey area. Upon checking into our pool side room, we went to tour the hotel amenities. The pool area was ok and included a few video games,... More

Enjoyed finding our favourite hotel at the end of a long day but that's where the joy ended. This is a tired, noisy place that salted the wound by being overly expensive. Great staff and an adjoining restaurant helped sooth the pain but this is a definite by-pass on all future journeys.

This was a short stay as we checked in late and left early. While the room was clean and comfortable it did appear that some updating was necessary. The staff that checked us in and out was very friendly.

unfortunately, all the new carpet and furniture couldn't mask the smell of a really old motel. they certainly tried to make the place nicer, but it just didn't work. there's a new style holiday inn sign, but don't be deceived. and because they have an attached restaurant, there's no breakfast included. we paid a little less the night before for...
