I stay here regularly for business. Service is always friendly and top notch, rooms clean and updated. The gym is a bonus for hotels in this area of NW Ontario. Breakfast has nice diversity, hot and cold. Location is conveniently located right on the Trans-Canada for easy in and out. Never had an issue in all my stays. Even got... More

When travelling in the US we often stay at Holiday Inn Express hotels, they are usually clean and reasonably priced hotels, best suited for overnights or short stays. This was the first HIE we stayed at in Canada. The hotel itself was recently renovated (2012). It does appear as though the reno was done on the cheap, the workmanship looks... More

This hotel was supposed to be a non smoking hotel. The first room we were given smelled so strongly of smoke that we couldn't stay in it. The second room was so hot - the thermostat was set to 85+. I turned it down and we went out for something to eat. When we came back it was still very... More

Really enjoyed my stay here, clean rooms, great breakfast friendly staff. A bit hard to control room temperature but overall a great place to stay. Close to places to eat. Undergoing some renovations but no effect on stay

This was a very nice place. Super clean and very modern. Friday's breakfast was fantastic with omelette, bacon/sausage. Saturday was your typical scrambled eggs and sausage. Staff was very friendly. Pool and workout room were very nice. Room rate was reasonable Can't go wrong with this place

I have stayed at all 3 brand name hotels in Dryden, and this one is the best, and the prices are comparable (or lower!). The WiFi is decent for a hotel of this size, and sometimes it is excellent. The best continental breakfast anywhere, typically stock English muffins, omelettes, and sausage or bacon, so you can make a breakfast sandwich.

We stayed at this property in July, while enroute to Western Canada. The customer service/front desk and housekeeping staff are great! The continental breakfast is quite lovely really. (although adding a Gluten Free cereal would be much appreciated!). The place offers wifi and a nice pool. The room was clean and the bed comfy!

Wifi was fast and breakfast was very good with omlettes, pancakes, bacon and sausage plus some other stuff that might be healthy as well. A bunch of smiling faces for staff.
