“Can't wait to come back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2010

We were in town to visit a client and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express North Bay for the first time. This is certainly a new hotel and I was very impressed. First off the location was very easy to find off of the hotels website and the service at the hotel was amazing.
From check-in to check-out everyone was very helpful and willing to help. Also like that the hotel was close to North Gate Mall and several nice restaurant nearby. The hotel offered a free breakfast in the morning and I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprised to see cereals, fruit and some hot items as well.

I don't know North Bay too well but will certainly come back when here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2009

Stayed for 2 nights for business. Decent hotel, no major complaints. Several things to watch out for: don't stay in rooms 101/102, as they are right next to the side exit door, which slams closed. Workout room has decent equipment that appeared fully functional, but a sweet tropical/vanilla/coconut scent was pumped into the room and could be overpowering for some. Overall, good value, quite clean and new.

First and foremcost the staff-just incredible!
Nothing compares to walking in to a hotel after a long day of travels and being greeted by wonderful staff at the front counter. My room was exceptionally well kept and very comfortable. I needed a place to hold a last minute meeting with my clietns and it seemed like everyone from front of the line staff to management were there to ensure that I had everything that I needed. This hotel just seems to know how to take care of their guests. I would recommend the Holiday Inn Express in North Bay anytime!

Very new, clean hotel. Friendly hotel staff. Nice room. Comfy bed. Excellent breakfast. Only issue was that the entrance way was icy and I slipped and fell on the way to my car.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on Feb 27th for 1 night, while attending a competition with my daughter.
The hotel is very new, and located right off hwy 11 on the way into North Bay. There had been warm temperatures and rain, then a flash freeze, so the parking lot was VERY icy! Was sanded and salted soon enough though.
I found the staff very friendly and helpful! The room we had was on the 3rd floor. VERY clean. 2 queen beds. spacious.
The breakfast in the morning was your typical continental fare, although they did have scrambled eggs (not recommended) and bacon.
There are many restaurants in the area (Timmies right across the road), as well as a mall a couple of minutes drive.
My only problem was that you would get noise from the hallways. You could hear every conversation when people were walking to their rooms.
Great stay!

Would have been a nice stay but for the hill billy sports team (and all their family) that were eating in the hallway outside of our room. Seems the frugal travellers crock potted their meals so that they could afford the Holiday Inn Express's higher room rates.

Lots of other reviewers have raved about this hotel and my experience there has been just as good. The rooms are clean, the bedding is comfy and the staff are very friendly and helpful. On my recent four night stay, there was a snowfall and the next morning, two hotel staff were out in the parking lot sweeping off the snow from all the guests' vehicles.
The only negative aspect of the property is the view from the rooms - either you get the highway or a Home Depot parking lot both with lots of truck noise at night. If you are there because you have business in North Bay, this is not an issue but if for some reason you are there on vacation, it could be.
There are a few restaurants nearby including a Tim Horton's with probably the worst parking/drive through configuration possible. The remaining nearby restaurants require crossing a very busy highway and there are no sidewalks. The hotel breakfast is okay if you like greasy type food but there are a few alternate menu items.
So bring in your own food and enjoy the room. I do lots of business travel across Ontario and this hotel is by far the nicest I have stayed at. Judging by how full the parking lot was, lots of other business travelers agree.

  • Liked — Clean, non-smoking and comfortable
  • Disliked — Location - surrounded by highway and commercial properties - no where to walk outdoors
