“Holiday Inn Express has room for improvement”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2007

I had an overnight stay at the North Bay Holiday Inn Express in late September. The facility is very new, and in appearance is an upgrade from older-style Holiday Inn Express properties. On the plus side, the front desk personnel were very nice and efficient throughout my stay, and the room decor was very nice. On the not-so-good side, I had to take a cold-to-room temperature shower; it was impossible to get hot water from the tap because the arm on the shower hardware would not move to the hot side of the dial. It seems unlikely that this was a new development. There were what appeared to be bloodstains on the bedding, which seemed odd in such a new property. The included breakfast was not up to the standards of its competition. All in all, for the "special" price of more than $150 after tax, I cannot recommend the Holiday Inn Express.

Finally a new hotel in North Bay! We stayed here over Labour Day weekend and it was great. We stayed in a Suite which was a decent size and had a small fridge and microwave oven. Hotel is brand new - was opened on July 27, 2007. Nice indoor pool and exercise area. Free wireless internet and 2 PC's were available in the business centre. Breakfast was included and was very good - typical Holiday Inn Express food - bread, English Muffins, Cinnamon buns, boiled eggs, ... There's a Tim Horton's (coffee, donuts, ...) across the street. There's also a mexican restaurant (Mexicali Rosa's) and a Sports Bar (Don Cherry's) across the street. I have stayed at a few hotels in the area and none can even come close to this hotel. I will always stay here when in the North Bay area.

Driving from Toronto to Sudbury we decided to try a different route. Glad we did as it took us right in to North Bay and this new Holiday Inn Express - apparently opened just a couple weeks ago. The staff were very friendly, the room spotless, and the free breakfast was outstanding. The Front Desk told us that we could collect Air Miles here, which was also nice. My son really enjoyed the pool, so much so that he did not want to leave to continue the trip to Sudbury the next day. Just before we did leave, the Front Desk person gave us a great tip on where to eat while driving to Sudbury (Surgeon Falls). We will definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it for anyone looking for a fun weekend away in North Bay. We paid a bit more for our room at the Holiday Inn Express than the hotel in Sudbury (Fairfield), but there was no comparison. We have found our new favourite hotel in Northern Ontario.
