My hubby and I recently stayed here when in Chatham. I read a lot of reviews about hotels in Chatham and was very concerned about the quality of hotels in the area due to poor reviews. I found the best reviews were of this hotel and I found out it was recently renovated.
We paid for our room in advance on the Holiday Inn website and saved 20% i think. We checked in on a Saturday and stayed one night. The check in process was quick. There was only one person working the front desk and she had to check us in and answer the phones/reservation system at the same time. We waited about 5mins for her to end her call and then she checked us in. No problem.
We had a king sized bed with pullout sofa in a fairly modern, renovated room on the third floor. The view we had was of an air conditioner on a roof, so not the greatest view but we didn't really have the blinds open. The bed was comfortable, a bit firm. They gave you plenty of pillows, and the pillowcases had embroidered "firm" and "soft" on them. It was nice to have two options. There was a dresser with about 3-4 drawers and a mini fridge. The alarm clock had an adapter for your iphone, mp3 player which was nice. The room had a desk and a small coffee table with two little chairs/ottomans that you could use which was cute. There were Pepsi machines on each floor and a small area near the front desk that sold chips/pop/toothbrushes etc. The bathrooms were small but ok. There was no tub in our room. The bathroom was not as updated as the rest of the room, or at least didn't seem to be but it was fine.
There is free breakfast in the lobby with toast, bagels, muffins, eggs, sausage, coffee, cereal, yougurt etc. They even have the coolest pancake machine I have ever seen. You press a button and it makes a pancake and pops it out the end like an assembly machine. Very neat. My huuby actually liked the coffee and he is so picky with coffee, usually only Starbucks will do. He also said the eggs were very good. They had free Globe and Mail newspapers to read and comfortable and modern seating and tables.
We didn't use the business centre or any other services so I cannot comment on them. We did use the free wireless internet which worked fine. They give you a password at check in. The hotel is located in a busy area of Chatham with a Tim Hortons nearby as well as a gas station, Pizza Hut etc.
Checkout was a breeze, we just handed in our keys!
Overall we enjoyed our stay, the rooms were clean and updated, the price of about $135 was reasonable and the service was fast and friendly. We were very pleased and would stay again!
