“Surprisingly Good”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

The staff here was pleasant and always willing to help, from providing directions to assuring good accommodations to specially holding a newspaper for us to giving us good restaurant options. The pool was good, except when overrun by visiting athletic teams of teenagers. When they were gone, it was quite enjoyable. The continental breakfast was simple, complete and adequate. The hotel is located conveniently close to the border crossing/international bridge: about 1 mile +/-. The beds were comfortable and parking was easy and plentiful. The hotel is nothing exceptional to look at from the outside, but inside - where you stay - is great, eye appealing and pleasant.

Room Tip: Ask for pool towels at the front desk and don't be shy about asking for help if the pool gets to...

Thank you for your great review! We agree that as soon as you enter our lobby and see our completely-renovated and modern space, you know that you're in for a great stay. We are glad to hear that you took advantage of the pool area, looking out onto our inner courtyard, and that you enjoyed your hot Express Start Breakfast. One of the best featuers of the hotel is how conveniently located we are, close to the International Bridge as well as many dining and shopping options. We hope that you will choose to stay with us again soon!

This hotel is right across the street from a big shopping mall. The renovation is very nice.
FREE Breakfast was fantastic. Unfortunately, the pool was out of order during this visit.
The staff was very professional and friendly.

Thank you for your great review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our newly-renovated property and experienced the high level of customer service you have come to expect from the Holiday Inn Express family. I'm sorry you weren't able to enjoy the pool area while you were here; although the whirlpool is undergoing a minor facelift, the pool is up and running! It's such a nice space to relax, with its floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking our central courtyard. And it's one of the largest indoor hotel pools you're bound to find in Sault Ste. Marie! We hope you will get the chance to return and enjoy it!

We stayed here last year and booked in again on our way home. Room very large and clean with excellent beds and amenities. A modern day look within the hotel. The staff was helpful and provided excellent service when we arrived and left. Good selection at the breakfast bar but could have had more fresh fruit selections. Highly recommend this hotel.

The disabled suite with a separate king bedroom and pull out sofa in the main room are one of the reasons why we stayed here again after a great stay last august! Handy kitchenette with fridge, microwave and sink is ideal for staying more than one night or for special dietary needs.
Staff are friendly and accommodating.
Only negative was the fan in the bathroom wasn't working, and the elevator is Still in disrepair.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review! Our accessible suites are one of my favourite rooms, as they are spacious and convenient for our guests who require it, and yet still comfortable and beautiful for those who don't! Our hotel adheres to the American Accessibility Standards, and we have a variety of different rooms available to those with additional needs. And yes, the Elevator has not had the same facelift (yet!) as the rest of the hotel, although still operational, and we cannot wait for it to match the rest of our beautiful facility! We hope you will stay with us again soon, and thank you again for the feedback!

Family spent one night with two teen age kids. Bought the Family Staycation package which included a large pizza and 2 movie tickets. It was nice to relax in the room and not have to worry about dinner (front desk will take care of everything). The theater is right across the street in the mall and was quite nice. The mall is also a nice amenity and they are updating the interior (has an interesting coffee shop and a Teavana). It also has a large Beer Store with a good selection of interesting Ontario beers. The hotel pool was clean and large with a nice but not very warm hot tub. There is also a very nice sauna. I like how the pool area is located in a central courtyard so it feels private (instead of being "on display" to traffic). The room was newly updated and very nice and tastefully decorated with a small kitchenette area and mini fridge. Beds were very comfortable. Only complaint is bathroom has no vent fan. The wifi is amazingly fast (best I have had at a hotel which the kids LOVED). The hotel is centrally located. You can walk across the street to the waters edge... watch boats docking, people fishing, enjoy the riverfront sculptures and the bridge. Also, on Saturday morning, the local farmers market is located right there. Breakfast was very good. I like the pancake maker. Overall a very nice, relaxing stay.

What a wonderful review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Holiday Inn Express Sault Ste. Marie. It truly is located close to everything you need: from Mill Market and the Station Mall for shopping, to the Sault Ste. Marie Canal and boardwalk for evening strolls, to Galaxy Movie Theatre, which we are glad you were able to enjoy as well! The Family Staycation package is a great, convenient alternative that allows you to relax and unwind and let the hotel staff take care of everything. We are also very glad that you enjoyed your comfortable, newly appointed room. We hope you will stay with us again soon!

Stayed one night while passing through. Enjoyed the large pool area, with plenty of places to sit out of the splash zone. Only one washer and dryer, but no quarters necessary to use it. Room was clean, beds and bedding comfortable, employees helpful, and breakfast appreciated.

This is the cleanest and friendliest Holiday Inn Express that we have stayed in. The rooms were outstanding; comfortable beds, great linens and good quality towels. The buffet was clean, well stocked, and the hostess was friendly and helpful. We greatly enjoyed our stay after four days of back country hiking. Thank you!!
