When traveling I use Holiday Inn and affiliate hotels and collect points from this chain so I have stayed in Holiday Inn Express (HIE) hotels extensively. This particular hotel is not representative of the rest of the chain. Our room had a broken television and fit the "tired" description used by another reviewer very accurately. The room did not have a microwave, usually a standard item in a HIE.
I went to this specific hotel because they advertised they had an airport shuttle, but discovered that the shuttle only runs between 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. which was not useful to me and added another $20.00 to my travel costs. the shuttle is parked very conveniently to the front door which makes it hard for people checking in with a car.
For the $180.00 room charge, I'd definitely choose to spend comparable amounts of money on better accommodations, starting with the real Holiday Inn around the corner from this one. Other options downtown include but are not limited to: the Park Town, the Delta, and the Sheraton.
If an airport shuttle is what you need the Saskatoon Inn is better located and has a shuttle that operates 24/7.More
