I recently attended a kids sleepover birthday party at the Holiday Inn on Venetian Blvd. in Sarnia. Kids and parents had reserved 2 adjoining rooms for party. 8 kids in all attended with 4 staying over night. They had a great time in the swimming pool, exercise room and hot tub. The rooms were spacious with 2 bathrooms for changing....

It sounds like a FANTASTIC party and that everyone really enjoyed themselves.....which is the whole idea when celebrating with family and friends!! As we just did a complete renovation (+$300,000) of the Indoor Pool, Change Rooms and Fitness Centre within the last year, I was pleased to see that you all enjoyed the new facilities. As we invented "Kids Eat...

Don't you hate it when you must stand over the toilet to close the bathroom door??? I certainly do when using a public toilet but I never imagined that I would have to do the same while using a hotel bathroom!!! Clean, nice salt water pool. Our room actually overlooked the back grassed property - much nicer than a typical...

Check in was very sufficient and fast. Did not get the room in the tower, that was promised. Stayed at the 2 story side of the hotel and we could hear the party, that was going on in the hotel still late into the night. The room was ok, the bathroom really small. Bedding and mattress were good. We enjoyed...

Usually come down this way once a year and often stay here. Rooms are always clean as is the lobby and hallways. Front desk staff is always helpful as well. I do find it a bit pricey considering it is Sarnia not Toronto. But, yes, I would stay here again.

The usual Holiday Inn standards exist at this location. The tower location is newer and I would recommend staying there. There is one floor in the tower that has secure access (card reader in the elevator). The restaurant offers above average food although a bit expensive. The cost was a higher than normal but I suspect it was because the...
