Rooms were large and clean. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Excellent breakfast buffet. Close to Alderwood Mall. Pool area could use some improvements. Elevator was quite slow so lower level room might be better. Lots of parking.

Nice location. Near Alderwood Shopping mall. Tons of restaurants nearby. Hotel room is clean, quiet and the beds are comfortable. The fresh coffee in the morning is a bonus. For dinner, we went to the spaghetti factory next door which has reasonable prices for a family of four. Holiday Inn did not disappoint and would trust this establishment for future... More

Nice quiet hotel with a great breakfast in the morning- had almost anything you could think of to eat for breakfast. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. The public areas could be a little cleaner need some attention to detail corners and walls a little dirty. The pool was refreshing and clean but the bottom of the jacuzzi had... More

When you reserve, ask for an upgrade. We stayed in a large king size room with everything travellers appreciate when they travel. And we travel a lot! More expensive hotels could learn from the design of this room. Microwave fridge, and very spacious room and bathroom. For not much more than $100.00 a night? How can you lose?

Have stayed here previously. Condition of hotel has declined, although it is still fairly new. Noted stains on sheets and pillows. Elevator and passageways could be cleaner. My biggest issue with my visit is about the check in process. It is a long drive from Canada, and I didn't appreciate standing in line for twenty minutes while 2 employees checked... More

This was one of the nicest motels my husband and I stayed in on our recent 21 day vacation. Our room was very nice. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable and inviting. It offered all the amenities you would expect for a motel with a four star rating. The continental breakfast was very good. I would definitely stay here again if... More

Easy to book, easy to get to, very quiet room. Disappointed that the pool was an indoor pool as the weather was beautiful. While breakfast was OK, it was not memorable and I dislike that it is served on paper plates. Walking distance to shopping. Unfortunately the only "restaurant" within walking distance is the Old Spaghetti factory - meh!

This is a great property kept in great condition located in a great location with great staff delivering great service. I had stayed here in the first week the hotel opened. Four years on the hotel is still in very clean condition. Salute!
