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. The address was the same, the name was the same, the Visa and dress count was the same, yet that was not gonna be enough.... More

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

We have stayed in this hotel at least three times in the last three years and it consistently meets or exceeds our expectations. We stay in connection with sporting events in the area. The only drawback is that breakfast does not start until 07:00 on the weekends, but we have been able to push the time to 06:30 by asking... More

I have stayed here many times over the past five years and have never had a bad experience. Even though it is the only quality choice of hotel in town, its staff work hard to provide a pleasant stay. The rooms are clean, beds very comfortable, and I love the choice of pillows with labelled pillowcases for hard and soft.... More

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I'm so sorry there were noise issues during your last visit. I'm wondering if you were in one of the connecting room types. Unfortunately, with a door between the units, rather than a solid wall, the sound control is slightly less efficient than with regular rooms where talking is rarely a cause... More

There were four groups of wedding guests and some children's sports teams staying at the hotel. The elevators were very slow and the children sometimes noisy, but it was still a pleasant stay. Great breakfast room with lots of choices, and the rooms were very comfortable.

This is a clean, efficient hotel just off Hwy 401, so very convenient. The beds are very comfortable, it was quiet, and the breakfast is very good for a self-serve breakfast. The shower is nice. There is no safe and no vanity mirror, otherwise a great hotel.

Needed a nice clean place to stay for the night. Got it! Staff was friendly, room was spotless. Breakfast was good and the breakfast room ladies were very nice. Would stay there again anytime. The hotel is very easy to get to from the 401. Restaurants and fast food places are also very nearby.
