I always stay here when in Dryden and never disappointed. Very good sleep in awesome bed and very clean. The suites here are perfect in my view. Some hotel owners a couple hours East of Thunder Bay should stop in and get some tips on how they could improve their establishments.

This is the 2nd Holiday Inn Express we have stayed in that seemed like it was converted from something else and they didn't quite go all the way. Our room smelled a little like old smoke- nothing crazy but there was an odor. The room itself was ok but the washroom needs work.

While this is by no means a bad hotel it certainly doesn't do justice to the Holiday Inn Express brand. It's dated and needs work but the people are warm and welcoming. Breakfast was standard fare for this chain. Beds were decent. TV channel choice was modest and browsing

Love this little place. Every time I visit Dryden I stay here. They have the best pillows, clean rooms and the staff are helpful. When I needed a microwave, they brought one out in their common room and even gave me a paper plate to use. The breakfast staff gave me a little

"If you need an easy access shower, ask for a walk in shower."
"Book this hotel by phoning and not using an internet booking. It can be less expensive."
"Check your room before you pay"
"There is nothing to really see on either side of the hotel so the rooms are all equal."
