My absolute only complaint was that I ordered hard boiled eggs and I got soft boiled. I was given a free breakfast for the error, which was nice. Otherwise, it was an excellent stay.

A moderate room, good service and great food. Other than the people and restaurant, nothing special. Room had a funny smell like dirty dishrags to it and too much chorline used for the bedding.

Room was very clean and comfortable. Housekeeping staff always seemed to help with anything. Checked out early due to unwillingness of staff to make a smart decision. Usually stay at hotels for the better part of the year and most hotels will accommodate extended stays. The grounds were clean good place to stay if not for a period of time. Would have liked to see some kind of complimentary breakfast or even discount coupons for rewards members. cant have everything I guess would have been nice if a/c unit was not so loud as to wake me up every hour.

While the staff are friendly at this hotel, the outdated rooms and facilities don't make this a hotel you want to stay at if you are travelling on business. Even as a platinum IHG member, I didn't get upgrades at this hotel.

A pretty tired property. We stayed in the older part of the bldg, the two story walk up, no elevator, and the interior, exterior, windows, sills, furniture, caulking walls, all showed their age. Nothing even close to the Holiday Inn Express I am sitting in and typing this review, which is a real compliment to the H/I chain.
As a professional trainer , and many many nights away traveler for many many years, Senior Management [ both property & corporate,needs to do a much better job of "Inspecting Expectations"., if H/I is to be considered a "my first choice" for lodging.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by travels2014 Good stay but leaky vent in bathroom
There was a leak in my bathroom and it was dripping yellow water all over the floor. I was able to move to another room in the same area but would have appreciated some sort of compensation (ie/ coupon for the restaurant, a discount for a future stay). Other than this, the stay was nice. They have nice scenery, very close to the border and good amenities (restaurant and gym). I would have liked more vegetarian options at the restaurant though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cts1234 perfectly fine stay
My stay was perfectly fine. We had a little trouble with the key card working at times. To open the door usually took multiple trys. The outdoor pool was not opened yet so that was a bit of a let down. Other than those little things all was well. Enjoyed having a patio door to the outside as it made access easy to our room and made the room seem bigger by having access to a patio and outdoor space.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Sarnia on May 3rd. It was anice place. I got a shock when i went to check out and was told i was being billed $8.00 for a local phone call. When I enquired about it with the person at the front desk they told me it was a long distance call.
I phoned back later and spoke toa manager, they said at one time it must have been long distance, they dropped the charge from my bill.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fredxx Nice Stay but very slow service times in restaurant
We have stayed a couple times at this location and like it very much. The staff are consistently friendly and accommodating. However, especially with this visit, service in the restaurant is very slow. Waited probably 15 minutes to be seated for breakfast despite at least one-third of the tables were empty. Once seated we had to wait again for drinks etc. Service was not commensurate with price point. Waitress was very friendly and did apologize however slow service was consistent with previous visits.

I'm a platinum elite member with more than a half million lifetime points. I don't like the Holiday Inns that don't offer much for the money. No free breakfast is a big turnoff because all my stays are work related. Hotels that charge a high price for the rooms but don't even give you a microwave want to force you to eat at their overpriced hotel restaurant. The same with the laundry, only 1 old beat up washing machine for whole hotel.
I will not easily forget my first day at the hotel. There was a hockey game in the hall in front of my door, hours of hockey sticks and pucks hitting my door. The players were squealing little kids and the cheering section was inebriated adults who would not heed my polite requests to keep it down, I'm trying to sleep That was undoubtedly my worst hotel stay day out of thousands of stays. Before I stay in this place again I'll sleep in my car.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lucy27 Consistent, Reliable Brand
The Holiday Inn continues to deliver in two key areas:
1) Cleanliness - the rooms are very clean, day after day, and the linens are always fresh and clean. (Great job, housekeeping!)
2) The Staff are attentive and personable.
I am glad to have Holiday Inn as my preferred brand. It's reassuring to know there is consistency behind the name.
I look forward to using your fitness room. It looks pretty nice.
Thanks, Holiday Inn.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by goolia1313 Great Pool, not so great room
We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub..but the room left a lot to be desired. The bathroom could use an overhaul. We had ants in our bathroom, and when we brought this up with the front desk at check out we were told that it is ant season?! Just expected a little more for the amount we paid.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 601dundas Stay away from the old part of this hotel
Booked King Suite with this hotel on business. I have stayed in this hotel, in the tower , and enjoyed and enjoyed those rooms. This time I was put in Room 105 which I found out the next morning, was across the hall from a maintenance room. These rooms have poor sound insulation from next door rooms and from activity in hall and maintenance area. When I mentioned this to desk staff , she suggested it was my fault for not specifying tower room. Our Company books meeting rooms here, and will suggest we look at options. If they are going to charge the same price, they should deliver the same sleep experience. Disappointed!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ellen 3 BEST MINI VACATION
I bring my three grandkids to the Holiday in every year on March break. We request the same room right next to the pool. The staff are so accommodating and I often request a later check out so the kids can have time for breakfast and a swim. I have been lucky in the fact the my request has been granted. However if my room has already been spoken for the staff at the front desk have assured me I can check out of my room and still use the pool and change room. That way the kids can stay later to enjoy a bit of the afternoon before heading home. The service and warm smiles make this the only choice for me. I will continue to come each year. The kids really look forward to this and it makes their March break an enjoyable, fun time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jdmretusn2008 Will be back...
There is a dearth of larger Chain Hotels in Sarnia...this means this Hotel could potentially, "care a little less if they so choose,". To date; with (3) week long trips times in (24) month period, I have not been disappointed.
- Staff = Everyone very helpful, friendly and supporting.
- Room = Beds very very comfortable even a week stay. While not brand new; the rooms do not have that, "well, I am called non smoking now.... but I used to be a smoking room", smell or feel. Every room I stay is very clean, carpets are fairly new, and absolutely zero issues with weird or odd hotel odors.
- Best Feature = As a Continuous Improvement person by trade; I greatly appreciate the fact that every time I stay there, something is improved.
- Internet 2013 = All IHG properties switched to free internet. Big up check. Although the connectivity on the 2nd floor (far wing) can be sketchy, I appreciate the fact it is free.
- Pool Area = 2012 to 2013 the pool area (and fitness center) were renovated. Interior pool deck retooled, added salt water pool, and improved the hot tub and added locker rooms.
- Food = 2013 improvements in the food. By ANY standards of hotel food comparatively speaking (Marriott/Hyatt) this IHG property has excellent pub food fare. Or more correctly, the burgers are unique and fries are fresh cut. Using my $5 membership discount I get a Sleemans Honey brown, Pepsi, and very tasty (what I almost call high end) Burger and Fries for $19 CND!
I recommend it for a relaxing or productive stay but be warned, Tuesday - Thursday it can be packed!!
