I had a double room with 2 queen beds. The room was clean when we came and the staff keep it cleaned daily. The TV, Fridge, and WIFI worked great. The only issue was getting logged into the WIFI the first time but the tech people were extremely helpful getting on. The Staff was great when I asked for extra coffee pods they had them at the registration desk. The morning breakfast was excellent.

You cannot control who stays at a hotel, but they can surely control who works there and they hired right :) Everyone from the front desk, to the breakfast room, to the cleaning and maintenance staff are truly wonderful people to talk and deal with. The hotel itself has a pool (closed for maintenance while I stayed, but it looks fun), a small gym, and free hot breakfast (which is why I choose HI Expresses to begin with). The rooms are well kept and have a tv, microwave, mini fridge, and Keurig coffee machine. I wanted for nothing during my stay and usually that makes for a wonderful hotel experience.

Terrible wifi, it did not work for most of my stay here. Very frustrating I found it bizarre how slow the elevator is I should’ve stayed at the one in Orillia This doesn’t feel like the HIE’s usually do. Cramped old fashioned lobby

I always book the king suite with kitcheonette, am thouroughly pleased, it's on the ground floor at the back , so easy parking. On our last visit I was so impressed with the breakfast and the breakfast lady, she was oustanding. It's not a bag breakfast but you can have hot waffles, eggs, sausage, bagels , everything you normally have but you just take it to your room, super awesome service! Totally reccomend this hotel! And not too far away from Casino, Uber always available!

My husband and I stayed for two nights on a recent spontaneous fall roadtrip. The room was great and we slept amazingly well in the comfortable bed. We've stayed at a few hotels during the time of Covid 19 and this one handled it the best. There was a hot breakfast available served by a gloved and masked staff member. My only complaint would be that our room wasn't cleaned during our stay. I would have appreciated if housekeeping had come in to at least empty the garbage and spruce up the bathroom. Overall, a good stay though and we would return for another visit.

Hotel staff was friendly, included breakfast had lots of options. Bed was comfortable. Nights were quiet but during the daytime it was somewhat noisy as our room was by an stairwell exit door and hockey tournament was on so lots of chatter and heavy footsteps in the hallway despite "Shhh" door hangers being up on most doors. Shower had visible black staining (possibly mold) in both inner corners that could probably be cleared with a bit of bleach spray.

My last review in 2015 I said we would not return but we have a few times and the hotel had improved. it is a convenient place to stay. Our last visit was disappointing because we were near an exit door which slammed shut and was very noisy. Lots of partiers as well, wedding group staying there so the breakfast was extra crowded. Wonder if our senior rate gets us the less desirable location? Stayed in two more ihg hotels this trip and ran into similar problems??

GrammyofTriplets, Thank you for taking the time to write your review of our property. I am happy to hear you have given us another chance. We do appreciate your comments & feedback. Your discounted rate does not play into where your guestroom is located, we do try to keep non-group guests separate from group blocks in house, such as weddings or sports team to minimize any potential noise disturbance. Some of our guestroom types are only located near the end of a hallway, thus being near the staircase exit. Depending on the room-type you reserved this could be the reason you are near the exit. I do apologize you were disturbed during your stay, should this happen again please contact the front desk and they will have security sent up to remind other guests to keep their noise levels down. Thank you again, we do hope to welcome you back again soon.
