This hotel offers awesome value for what you pay. It’s quiet, comfortable, very clean, and has spacious rooms. Easily relaxed and settled into the huge king size bed after long day at family funeral. Room was not too hot or cold and temperature was adjustable. Staff on arrival was very helpful.

Breakfast was hot and lots of variety - but no gluten free options - like most other chains don’t. This would improve the experience of people like me who can’t eat most of what’s on offer other than eggs, meat, and fruit.

The bathtub was a bit questionable. Didn’t appear to have been scrubbed. Maybe wipes were used to disinfect? As someone who likes a bath to unwind after a long day I need a well scrubbed tub. Many people shower and maybe tub scrubbing isn’t considered a priority but soap and other substances build up on the bottom - an icky situation for a bath.

Overall I’d recommend this hotel. Gluten free options would increase customer satisfaction of the many gluten intolerant guests. Hopefully someone reads this and checks to see that tubs are well scrubbed.

Hello. Thank you very much for your review and rating. We do offer gluten free options at our breakfast. We have cereal, muffins and bread as well as our staff is very knowledgeable in regards to the ingredients in all of our items. Next time, just ask one of our staff members and we would be more than happy to provide you with gluten free options. We always like to ensure that all of our guests are able to start their day off right with our breakfast, no matter the dietary restrictions they may have.
I want to apologize about the state of your bathtub. I have passed along this information to our housekeeping staff to ensure they are aware and this does not happen in the future.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again the next time you are visiting Bowmanville. Sincerely, Roberta McCann; Sales Coordinator

The Holiday Inn Express Hotel& Suites in Bowmanville is well located for those travelling from Pearson airport to points eastwards — about an hour by car from the airport, it gets you out of Toronto and provides a good place to rest before continuing your journey.

The room was spacious and well-appointed with good amenities and comfortable bedding to afford a pleasant sleep. The complimentary newspaper, wifi and breakfast were appreciated. However the latter was a bit disappointing as, whilst there was a reasonable array of offerings (fruit, cereal, eggs, bacon, beans, etc) the ‘hot food’ was only moderately warm. Still it was tasty and nutritious.

MMichael,
Thank you very much for your review & rating. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time with us and were able to enjoy the amenities we offer. I do apologize that our breakfast did not exceed your expectations. Good news is that IHG is launching a brand new breakfast and hopefully should we rolling it out by early next year. We hope to see you again the next time you are in Bowmanville.

Stayed overnight for an event at CTMP. Front desk were friendly and check in was quickly accomplished. The room was clean and large. I can't think of anything bad to say about this stay. To top it all off the breakfast was pretty good too.

A small, quiet and cozy spot to rest your head away from the bustle of Toronto. The beds were comfortable and we all got a great night's sleep. There's a nice pool, hot hot tub, and a decent continental breakfast, though due to a shortage of counter space there's an awkward position for the egg and meats dishes on top of each other, causing a lineup of hungry guests. But the staff there were always on their toes kept the trays full. The other staff were also courteous and attentive to our needs. When I told the front desk clerk my daughter wanted hot chocolate instead of the coffee K-cups in the room, she immediately went to get a packet out of the breakfast room. There's also a Wendy's and Tim Hortons within walking distance, so bonus there. All in all a very nice stay.

have stayed here a few times while traveling down 401. Very convenient to highway and not far from good restaurants in city centre. Rooms are clean and modern. Parking is easy. Breakfast is decent for these sorts of places - large breakfast room. Overall a good choice when passing through.
