It's a basic Holiday Inn hotel where you get what you expect. My room (a King bed) was fully equipped (fridge and Keurig), roomy and comfortable. The gym was ok, with 3 treadmills and one tv for all. Free breakfast with a basic buffet and decent menu to choose from if you wanted. The staff was friendly enough, didn't really...

The room was very clean. Loved the view of the harbor! Loved the pool.....even thought the waterslide is closed every Monday! Whirlpool was nice too. The very best things was the breakfast included with the room---bacon, waffles with fruit, sausage, eggs, oatmeal etc. wow the best ever! The man on the front desk was very nice and fast! I didn't...

Our room was near the elevator and the constant whining of the elevator was truly annoying. It didn't end until the middle of the night. Other than that, the hotel is ok. On the waterfront, with good views.

Rooms were super clean, smelling fresh and nice sheets. Right on the Harbor so you can watch the small ships and see the beauty of the province. Service is excellent and staff superb. Be sure to try for Harbor view if you can. Nice lounge/

We got storm stayed at Sydney on Monday, Oct 10. Luckily for us, the Holiday Inn were able to accommodate us ( and many other wind/blown travellers). The man working in the only lounge/kitchen (The Moose and Crown?) open due to the holiday was wonderfully welcoming and a lot of fun. He made us feel right at home despite being...

The room was large, bed was very comfortable, and the furnishings were tasteful. The room included a huge desk, a love seat, a mini fridge, Keurig, a large flat screen TV, iron and ironing board, lots of lighting, and good size windows with water views. It was very clean and well appointed. The only thing I found a little unpleasant...

Our room overlooked the waterfront, and many do. Much nicer than expected for a Holiday Inn. Nice folks at reception. Good night's sleep. Do not take the breakfast buffet. Eggs were dry. Laundry facility worked well. Walked to dinner; good location.

Sadly our issues with this hotel began even before we had arrived. My husband and I had driven to Sydney from Ontario with our 10 month old son to attend a race. The Holiday Inn was the preferred hotel for the race and as such we were given a preferred rate. This was why we chose to stay at this...
