“Excellent Hotel Close to Everything!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

My buddy and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express while in Sault Ste. Marie to watch a Greyhounds game. First off if you are going to the game or anything at the Essar Centre this is a great hotel to stay at. From our room we could see across the street into the arena and even saw the scoreboard through the buildings windows. After the game it literally took 4 minutes to get from our seat down the stairs accross the street and into our room. The hotel is also directly accross from the Station Mall although we didn't go there.

Check in was great. We originally booked a room at another hotel but after picking up our Hounds tickets we went accross to check out the rates. Julien at the front desk was fantastic! He was able to secure a good rate and give us info on what to do in the neighbourhood.

The rooms are really nice. The hotel was recently renovated as it used to be a Days Inn so they have put a lot of work into it. The rooms have a new flat screen tv and microwave and mini fridge. The only issue was the elevator. There is only one and it is quite old. Still has the old school black buttons that stick out from the console and one of the panels had fallen while we were there. It wasn't slow though so it wasn't really a problem.

We didn't use the pool but it looks nice with a sauna and weight room adjacent.

Next time I come back to the Soo I will definatily be staying here.

4 months ago this was days inn and it was undergoing massive renovation - I opted to cancel my reservation. And now, on my second trip to the Soo, it turned out to be Holiday inn express after the renovation. Pleasant surprise! Newly renovated facade , rooms are
Awesome - great beds, I love the work area. Flat screen TV - new bathroom. Nice lobby and better breakfast selection compared to other similar hotels. Ample parking. Just across Station mall for some shopping, movies etc. excellent accomodation if you're in town for business.

We stayed in mid-October and they had almost completed their transformation into a Holiday Inn Express. Everything has been upgraded. The lobby is welcoming and bright. The individual rooms we were told were gutted and then re-done with all new decor. The expanded hot breakfast (which is standard with all Holiday Inn Expresses) was a nice treat before a long early morning car ride.

Highly recommended.
