“Great Service!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Besides having great Front Desk people, the ambiance of the hotel was great, maybe they have a lot of happy people working there. I also, liked the layout and aesthetic appearance inside, real nice decor.

They have something better than an airport shuttle! Upon arrival you take the taxi to the hotel, go inside and they give you (or your driver) a voucher for the ride from the airport and will provide a voucher for your return trip to the airport or the bus station. I like this because I didn't have to stand out in the cold waiting for a shuttle. Great employees, facilities right up there with the best, very clean. I was impressed by the front desk. I was leaving at 445 am to take a bus north. She offered to get me some cold items to put in my fridge because I was leaving before breakfast, so I was able to board the bus with fresh coffee, milk, fruit, some yogurt and a roll. More user friendly than the other Holiday Inn in Grande Prairie. Oh, almost forgot, right next door to Mr. Mikes which is one of my favorite watering hole/pub food restaurant in Northern BC.

Was in Grande Prairie for an Ag Show. Check in was exceptional with a very courteous person very willing to help you in any way. When asked if I was a Priority Club member, i gave her my phone with the number in it. Her comment was I wish more people would do this! Just a quick tip for all of you business travelers out there! Not sure why Holiday Inn does not track your number in their system.... Room is a standard double which was clean and as expected from the chain. Internet was a bit different than I have seen in other hotels. It had it's own router and it's specific password. It worked well for hooking up remotely to my work computer with not much lag. Made use of the gym, which was one of the better ones that I have used lately. Didn't matter what time you went there was no one using it. Staff overall were very friendly. The only downside to this hotel is the proximity to the main roads. If you are located on an outside room facing the roads, be prepared to be woken up early in the morning. Being an oil and lumber type of town these guys get out by six am. Get a room on the inside, I am sure that you will sleep alot better! There is a number of good restaurants that are within walking distance. There is one attached and the food is good.

I would like to say thanks for the lovely stay. The rooms are very comfortable and the linens are soft. I would like to thank Laverne in the breakfast room for such an amazing meal and her hospitality, like home away from home.

Room Tip: I like the main floors.

The hotel is what I have come to expect from the holiday inn express chain. A decent room good staff and horrible internet. If your job requires you to have reliable access to the internet you need a air card. Other then that it was a good stay and guest appreciation dinner was a nice touch.

After a horrible trip, driving several hours through near white-out conditions, i was happy to arrive at my hotel for the evening and was very much looking forward to a soak in the hot tub. Unfortunately, by the time i slogged in through the deep unshovelled snow, dodged vehicles that appeared parked under the canopy for the evening and waited for the surly desk clerk to return to her post - the pool had closed (shuts down at 10 p.m. sharp and as I found out, no exceptions).

Considering the oilpatch traffic, the property did not appear badly tracked up (as some get). The room was huge and typical quality finish for a HIX. The bed was comfortable, the pillows were not. Although the room appeared clean, when I opened the back of the in-room coffee maker, I was greeted with a page torn from a porn magazine. I'm not sure if a prior guest was hiding this from a partner or roommate or if this was just a childish oil worker stunt. The page itself wasn't disconcerting but it made you question how thorough the housecleaning may have been and what other surprises might be found. YUCK.

They advertise WIFI but the service was horrible - it was slow at best and cut out frequently. I finally gave up in frustration.

They offer an upgraded breakfast with (I presume frozen and reheated) omelettes, sausage, some bacon like strips (I've never seen bacon so thin or so flat and uniform) and a type of cinnamon roll - in addition to the more standard continental fare.

Checkout was efficient and the clerk, though not great, was not as bad as her check-in counterpart. As I was leaving, they were finally starting to clear snow.

I've had better experiences in other Grande Prairie properties. This one was mediocre.
