Hello Cameranel, thank you for taking a moment to review our hotel, we sincerely appreciate it. Our property is indeed the perfect stop while touring the province, ideally located between PEI, Halifax and Cape Breton so that just when you decide you can't possibly take in another fabulous thing on your Maritime Road Trip there appears a Holiday Inn Express like a beacon in the night! We hope you'll return again soon!
Stayed one night with two other couples on our way to a Cape Breton adventure. The Garmin car GPS knew where the hotel is but not the entire road to get there. No matter, good signs on the road guided us in.
The staff were warm and friendly and helped us sort out the best deal for the evening. The room was clean and well apponted. The carpet looked a bit aged and dirty already and this is a relatively new hotel. Breakfast was good but not a very particularly large selection.
The only issues we had is one of our couples had to request a move to a new room as the first one they were given was quite smelly. The staff got them a room on another floor without delay.
I would recomend the hotel to anyone passing by on the Trans Canada.
Hello Fusilier111, thank you so much for your review, we appreciate your feedback and your recommendation! Hope you and your friends enjoyed your Cape Breton adventure~so much to see and do, makes for an excellent road trip!
Stayed here after crossing from PEI by ferry. Excellent Holiday Inn Express easy to find. Clean, good wifi, good coin laundry, quiet, nice indoor pool, good workout room, great breakfast. We only stayed one night wished we could have stayed more. There are lot of interesting things to do close to this area. Front desk was very friendly and knowledgeable. Plenty of free parking would need a car as the restaurants are a drive from the hotel. Had a refrigerator and coffee pot in the room.
Hello Smokedogaz, thank you so much for your fantastic review of our property, much appreciated! Our proximity to the PEI Ferry is a pleasant surprise for a lot of travelers, it's a very convenient location between PEI and Cape Breton~makes for a perfect rest stop in between destinations on your Maritime Road Trip. But with that being said, we're so pleased that you pointed out that there are many interesting things to do in our area as well! You'll have to come back when you have more time to spend with us!
The reception on arrival was pleasant, and welcome after driving for 6 hours.There were four of us family members sharing a room. The room was very nice, clean, and the beds were comfortable. It was quiet.
We decided to take advantage of the pool and go for a swim, ........a big mistake. The pool was very small and was full of overweight, screaming children dive-bombing down the slide, making it impossible to swim, the noise was added to by the parents screaming out to their offspring. To have the slide coming into that small pool is quite dangerous, for anyone attempting to swim. We didn't try to swim........It was a relief to leave.
Breakfast was fairly good, if you like it being served with plastic cutlery and cardboard plates.
Hello Bryan and Jacqu..., thank you so much for your great comments about our property! We appreciate all feedback from our guests as we are continually striving to improve our offering. We're sincerely sorry you weren't able to enjoy the pool area and hope that your next visit will be a little less busy...but on a brighter note~our Breakfast Bar is changing for the better, we have just received delivery of our new dishes-no more cardboard! We hope to see you again soon!
This hotel was clean, rooms good size and breakfast was more than expected. The kids loved the slide that came with the pool area. Right off highway and 25 mins from Sandy, Melmerby Beach. Would definitely recommend this hotel for family stop-overs.
Hello pellydog, we're so happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed your time with us, there aren't too many kids who don't love an 80' waterslide! Melmerby Beach is one of our finest beaches, they say it has the warmest water north of the Carolinas! We're also glad that we surpassed your expectations with our hot buffet breakfast offering, we think that perhaps the pancake machine outrivals the waterslide in many cases! Hope to see you again soon!
Stayed here with a tour group that was catching the ferry early the next morning. Was a little concerned when I saw how many teenagers were in the lobby for a sport tournament, but manager assured us quiet hours at 10PM was enforced and he was correct, there was no noise at all. Room was clean & modern, had a frig, micro and coffee pot. Comfy king bed. Above average breakfast bar, well stocked and kept clean.
Hello Slotmachinequeen (lol), thank you so much for taking the time to share your comments. We take the comfort of all of our guests very seriously and do our best to make sure everyone enjoys their time with us. We are very pleased to be able to offer a hot breakfast and fabulous rooms~hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip to PEI!
