Could someone explain how this is a roll in accessible shower? We reserved a king bed, accessible room. I called to confirm that the toilet especially had bars - otherwise I can't use it. We were given a king bed, regular bathroom. Of course we called the front desk. Our son had helped us move in our luggage as my... More

Thank you for your review. I sincerely apologize for the frustration you experienced. Yes, you absolutely did book the standard accessible room, unfortunately, the added comments in your reservation specified that you wanted a King Leisure room. As you did not book your reservation directly with the hotel, the agent thought she was honouring your special request and providing good... More

Location is the main attraction for this property as it is situated near the highway but not so close that you can hear the traffic. The room we had on the 4th floor had a view of the lake. The room was spacious with a sitting area. There was a small microwave and a fridge. We made use of the... More

We stayed here for a week on our house hunting trip in March 2014. Beds were comfortable, room was cleaned every day. Breakfasts were really good every morning.

Although, I didn't spend the night here, I did spend a lot of time here with my daughters Basket Ball team. Great hotel with a nice indoor pool..... The breakfast in the morning was REALLY GOOD. Worth the stay just for that! Rooms are very nice as well. Close to highway, and plenty of fast food choices near by......

This hotel is right off the highway and very easy to get to! very new, very clean. Also, free WiFi! Breakfast was included and offered a lot of options (loved the "pancake in a minute " machine). You won't be disappointed.

we are here as a hockey tournament. 17 players familys. you would think they would get a floor together so we could converse. I have never been subjected to such negative comments as their security as I have. I wouldn't recommend this to any team or organization at all.. they do not accommodate at all to the 50 + people...

Thank you for your review. I am genuinely sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us and I'd like to try to clear up any confusion that may have contributed to your frustration. We only have 10 standard double queen rooms per floor (the room type booked by all teams) so, as a group of 17 families, it would be... More

The Holiday Inn at Bowmanville, ON was a very pleasant stay. Very clean, quiet, comfortable, and a very good breakfast. The hotel staff were very helpful with recommendations and directions for restaurants.

The check - in was a little different. My wife had made the reservation and when I checked in they were gonna give me hard time since it was not the same credit card number.

Thank you for your candid review. We appreciate you choosing our hotel for your recent stay and I apologize for any frustration you might have experienced. Unfortunately, the reservation did not include your name which is where the problem arose. The credit card comparison was simply the agent's attempt to confirm your relationship to the reservation holder. For security purposes,... More
