Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by February Fire Alarm
I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn in Sarnia. I have now been to this hotel about 5 times. This time we weren't overly impressed and might consider another hotel for our next trip. To start the hotel fire alarm went off around 5am in the morning! We had to wake up our baby and 4 year old and carry them down 3 flights of stairs. We were told by other guests that it was just a false alarm and that it happens a lot at this hotel. Things needed to be checked out so we waiting almost half an hour in our car in the middle of a snow storm before we could return back inside. The elevators were still out of service so we had to climb up 3 flights of stairs with our baby and 4 year old "not easy". Our kids at that point were wide awake so we thought we would go and get breakfast at the restaurant downstairs. Our information in our room said that the dinning was open at 6am so we all got dressed and went down. The restaurant was closed and we told the man at the front desk our in-room information says 6am and the man said no its 7:30am on Sundays. He also told us the only thing open in Sarnia at 6am in the morning are donut shops. So we had to wait. I hope some one considers our inconvenience and considers a discount on our next stay otherwise it might be time to try another hotel!

I stayed here overnight for business. The room was very clean and comfortable and furnishings, bedding etc. all looked new and in great shape. Breakfast at the hotel was average at best for the price. All-in-all it was a good experience and the room was a very good value for the price.

I found everything to be excellent, except the coffee maker didn't work the first night, and had run to Tim Hortons early in the morning.

Booked room over 1 month in advance. Had many children running up and down the corridor, playing kickball,unsupervised by parents. This is the second year in a row. Not happy! Probably will not stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great room, great staff
I stayed in the king extended stay room in the tower.
I don't think ive ever seen a hotel room that clean, and I would love to take that bed home with me.
I really have no complaints. It was a busy weekend with hockey teams there, but I really didn't notice to much in the room I was in.
The food was really good, and the staff went out of their way to be caring and helpful.
The salt treated pool and spa was newly done and wonderful. I just went at early times and supper times to avoid the hockey players.
I would definitely stay again, and suggest that room to anyone.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Basketball Team Coach Disrepectful Guests
Overall the staff was very good and the room was nice and clean. We had arranged for our girls basketball team to stay at this hotel and the girls really enjoyed themselves and the time spent at this hotel. They had a kids eat free deal and also gave us $5.00 off coupons for food because we were IHG members. My only issue had to do with the other guests in the hotel. They were loud and disrespectful of the other guest in the hotel. They were very loud and used very vulgar language and many profanities. The hotel did have a security guard who was going around the hall but they were unable to control the large amount of guests in some rooms, the group rooms and in the halls. I am ok with people having fun until about 11:00 at night but not until 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning. As the organizer of the group I heard complaints from over half of the individuals in our group of 10. This was even after we had to have each parent sign the Holiday Inns Sarnia Team Booking Policy and Procedures and the hotel not enforcing any of these Policies and Procedures that they had

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lissa11 Comfortable bed, clean rooms
Although the hotel was clean, with comfortable beds, the number of travel teams staying at the hotel made for a very loud weekend with little sleep. I felt bad for the security who had to deal with all the rowdie late night partiers. Although they did try to handle this it was out of their control at times. I did not enjoy getting woken up on many occasions throughout the night by inconsiderate drunk people. I too was there for a travel team event and would never act this inconsiderately. Also, the buffet on Saturday morning was really good and quick, but then it wasn't offered on Sunday morning until 11:00 am. Way too late for a quick breakfast...and prices for made to order we're quite expensive.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cedar wood Room for improvement
I am aware that renovations are under way at this Holiday Inn, but they better finish them soon. It still has a tired feeling about the lobby and rooms.
We chose to eat at the pub in the restaurant as apparently one needs a reservation for the main dining room which we did not have. As it turned out it didn't matter as the one waitress was working both rooms. Apparently they were not expecting many people for dinner on a Saturday evening so the one waitress did not have any help and it did not appear that there was anyone who could help her for a short period of time. She was run off her feet and service was very slow to say the least. It took an hour and a half to get a hamburger. Needless to say we ( and the other families in the pub) were not impressed. It ruined our evening.

found the room comfortable. There needs to be an arm chair for those who cannot lift themselves off the daybed and was suggested that the desk chair might suffice but it rolls and not applicable to someone who is insecure about getting up! The 4 day stay was great though and the staff ready and willing to get help however they could. Thank you - we enjoyed ourselves!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by candjontario Great Beds
We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Sarnia before and we were happy with all aspects of the hotel. So it was nice to be familiar with the surroundings.
We did not spend a lot of time in the room as we were there to visit relatives. We were on the 2nd floor and apparently the rooms on that floor have been renovated this past year. The bed was amazing, but the carpets could have been cleaner. There was white lint everywhere in the room with the exception of the bathroom. Not a big deal but a little distracting while walking in your slippers/stockings.
All in all we will book the Holiday Inn for our next visit, but will ask for a room the has been vacuumed.

Just spent another great stay at this heartwarming Holiday Inn in Sarnia! . Again, the staff could not have been any friendlier and made sure I had everything I needed to enjoy my holiday stay. Somehow they even let Santa know I was there and hung a stocking on my door. It's little touches like that, that people remember.
I always make this hotel my number one choice when visiting the area.
Hope to see you again very soon...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ENSPEC Sarnia-Point Edward Holiday Inn and Conference Center
I often bring clients in from out-of-town and I consistently choose the Sarnia-Point Edward Holiday Inn and Conference Center for several reasons. The front end staff are extremely courteous and are more than happy to accommodate additional client requests. Other support staff are also friendly and courteous and often say hello. The hotel as a whole is clean and organized and the tower rooms are top notch. Even the clients comment on the quality of the rooms as well as the food at both the Bridges Bistro & Freightor's Lounge. Our clients often request the same rooms for their next visit which speaks volumes to this hotel.
Thank you for the exceptional services and wonderful facilities. I will continue to recommend Sarnia-Point Edward Holiday Inn and Conference Center for present and future clients.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by cheesedart123 Dirty Room not impressed
I have stayed in this Hotel many times on the first floor, but never on the second.
I found the room to be dirty.
The cleaning staff left a bar of soap in the shower from a prevoius guest.
The previous quest or cleaning staff moved the work lamp the only plug at the desk to the bed side table.
When I travel I use the wifi extensively and I have three devices Blackberry, IPAD, Iaptop.
One plug at the Desk will not due.
Thee TV a Phillips also did not work, and the staff had to reset it.
It would mean alot to me to have a power bar in the room at my desk and have behind the desk and TV cleaned once a month.

The rooms could use a few updates... but all in all the hotel is not that bad. The pool and workout room are very good and the heaven burger from room service was delicious.
I really don't have anything overly negative to say, so I won't. If you're staying in the area this is a fine hotel to call home for a few nights.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rob06 Treated like royalty!!
We have relatives in Sarnia, therefore when we come to visit several times a year, we always make this hotel our choice for our stay. This time, in particular, we were upgraded to one of the newly renovated rooms, and WOW! The beds are most comfortable, and the bathroom is certainly much larger than the previous ones. Great improvements! We were treated royally with a welcome gift in the room when we arrived, along with a personalized note inviting us to visit a special guest Zoo located in one of the ball rooms. We felt very honoured to be there, even though we stayed only one night this time.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa20131 Poor hotel layout
I was pleased with everything except the poor layout of the hotel. We had to walk past the ballrooms to get to the pool and fitness facilities. There were two weddings at the time of our stay and I was mortified to walk behind a bride and bridal party wearing my towel and flip flops and carrying my son's pool floatie. If this was my wedding I would definitely have been upset.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dudeman Television & Air Conditioning
Remotes provided did not wok outside a small perimeter from the tv. The staff did try to fix it a number a times to no avail. I found the remote to always be a problemin any room I have. I bought a cheap remote and it worked wonderfully.
Channel selection was awful. SN stations (4 of them) normally showed same show. There was no tv guide channel.
Above tv complaints are consistant for all my co-workers who book the holiday inn.
Air conditioning could run consistantly and not cool down room. I was in the tower. And it was the fall time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CSHutch poor TV
It was very difficult to operate the TV Long delay between poking the remote and channel changes. TV froze up one time and only giggling the wires in the back got it back operating. The advice card unde3r the TV suggested that if we had difficulties, we should try unplugging the TV and plugging it in again. This was not an available solution however since the plugt was inaccessible behind the bureau.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Al321 Great overnight stop
Was surprised at the road noise outside of the hotel when we arrived, but once in our room (which faced the road) we were pleasantly surprised with how quiet it was. We had a great sleep. Overall the hotel was better than expected, but the hallway to our room looked a little dated. Check-in was quick and efficient.
Only complaint was that our A/C unit was rattling, but by simply setting a shoe on top of the unit it stopped rattling and we were able to sleep peacefully.

This stay was really great. We used new building and were very satisfied with the room, food and customer service. Sunday branch (open buffet) was prepared really well. It was a lot of fish, fruits and vegetables. Front desk personnel (I believe it was Mathew, if I am not mistaken) was ready to go extra mile to assist with directions to local restaurants and places to visit, in resolving any issues and in proving best possible customer service. Swimming pool was also very nice. It was really great experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lungfish Okay, but....
The room had a somewhat damp, mildewy smell. And the fan in the bathroom didn't work at all—which may have had something to do with the damp, mildewy smell. Everything else was fine. Friends attending the same wedding as I was had a less expensive room in a nearby hotel that had neither of these problems, so for visitors to Sarnia I could not in good conscience recommend the Holiday Inn.

What's to say, room with a bed. Not a fan of the pillows used. Nice size swimming pool. Unfortunately hot tub was relocated and not working yet. Wish windows in rooms would open some.
